NOTD - 2 for 1!

Happy Friday! Today I have two polishes to show you :) I'm warning you now, I'm in the Fall zone! No more neons for me!

They are both new colors from L'Oreal. The first is called The Perfect Trench, part of the London collection. It is a mustard yellow & I love it! I've been wanting a mustard polish for a while & when I saw this I had to have it. This color is not for everyone, but I really enjoy it! It is perfect for fall :)

Next up is Downtown Chic, from the New York Nudes collection. I also love this color. It's a great reddish brown for the fall. I decided to add some glitter with Sally Hansen Ring-a-Ding. This glitter is really pretty, but I'm not feelin it on this manicure. It's all chunky glitter which can be hard to place on the nail. I wish I had left it off. During the fall I love having short dark cream nails. I think this polish is best on its own.

What are you wearing for fall?

Mini Haul!

Saturday I went shopping & picked up a few items from the Harmon Face Values inside my Bed Bath & Beyond. I love shopping there because they seem to have new products sooner than other drugstores & they are usually cheaper. Plus I get coupons for BB&B that I can use, such as $5 off a purchase of $15 or more!

I was looking for the Fall Essie collection, but they did not have it. Instead I got some products from the new L'Oreal New York Nudes collection, plus a Revlon nail polish I've been wanting for a while.

L'Oreal Colour Riche lipstick in Nature's Blush, L'Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss in Girl's Night Out, L'Oreal Nail polish in Downtown Chic, Revlon Smoldering

Top: Girl's Night Out gloss, Bottom: Nature's Blush lipstick

 I think these colors are so pretty & perfect for Fall. I had a hard time just three! But I wanted to try a few out, especially since I've never used this gloss before. I'm happy with my selections though :)

And Revlon Smoldering is a polish I've wanted for months now. It came out earlier this year & I always look at it in the store. I finally decided to get it. It's a silver metallic with pink/purple duochrome.

That's it for now. There are more new products coming out & I can't wait to get my hands on them!

NOTD - Rockin Mani!

Today I wanted to show you the manicure I rocked last week :) I'm wearing Color Club Peace Out Purple with Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink as my accent. I really loved this combo! Peace Out Purple is almost a neon, but doesn't dry matte, which I love! It's a really bright magenta. I decided to use Rockstar Pink because the colors really went well together. I like this particular glitter because it is pretty opaque. I've had this color since last summer & I think this is the first time I've worn it! It was fun to "shop" my nail polish collection & come up with a new look!

NOTD - Penny Talk

Hi everyone! So I was looking at my blog posts today & realized that I haven't posted in almost a month! That is crazy! So if you are still with me and reading this, thank you! I actually thought I already posted pictures of this manicure. I know that I wrote a post & uploaded these pictures. So I'm not sure what happened or why it didn't publish. 

This color is a new one from Essie called Penny Talk, from the Mirror Metallics collection. This was the only color that interested me. It is a copper/rose gold color & I love it! It is difficult to work with though. Sometimes when you go over a spot, it takes it off & you're left with a little bald spot. I had to allow some time to dry between coats. But the color is gorgeous! 

I'm so sorry for my lack of posting recently! I really hope to get on a schedule & start posting again about nail polish & makeup :) Fall is approaching & nail companies are releasing their fall collections. So I should have some new polishes to swatch in the upcoming months! Thanks again for reading & sticking with me!
