What I Bought Wednesday: @ultabeauty Haul

If you saw my @instagram Story right after I placed this order, you would know that, for over $240 worth of product, I only paid $25!

Wear Test Wednesday – @kissproducts Gel Fantasy Nails

I have always loved the look of long nails. However, I have rarely been able to achieve them naturally because as soon as I have spent weeks coddling them so they grow strong, one breaks. Plus, at some point, it gets difficult to do every day tasks if they get too long. So, I thought, after seeing a few rave reviews, why not flash back to my childhood and buy fake nails at the drugstore that I apply myself! I picked up the @kissproducts Gel Fantasy Nails in the color Tight Fit ($7.99 at @walgreens). I chose the Short Length … Continue reading Wear Test Wednesday – @kissproducts Gel Fantasy Nails

Support Saturday – Nail Tutorial

I had the idea a while back to test out tutorials from bloggers I follow and admire. It forces me out of my comfort zone, while showing support for those accounts I think deserve it! For my first post in this series, I attempted to replicate @polished_and_designedโ€™s marble nail tutorial! What did I learn through this process? I have a much greater appreciation for the skill it takes to nail nail art (pun intended)! I got through step 1 just fine, but all the other steps that required a creative eye and a steady hand were not where I excelled. … Continue reading Support Saturday – Nail Tutorial

Whatโ€™s on My Nails Wednesday – Zoya Honor and Tomoko

Mani Monday

A few weeks back, @klpolish had a 40% off sale. Normally that would be exciting enough, but then I noticed that their bundles were also on sale. I thought no way would both sales work together, but they did! So, I got six (6) bottles of their nail polish (retail $57) for only $18! One of those polishes was Virgo, which I am wearing today, from the Earth Bundle. What it claims: ๐Ÿ”˜ Deep gray ๐Ÿ”˜ The perfect alternative to black for the fall ๐Ÿ”˜ Creme finish ๐Ÿ”˜ Limited edition ๐Ÿ”˜ KL Polish is the only polish on the market … Continue reading Mani Monday
