NEW OPI Soft Shades Collection For 2015 (Nail Polish Pictures & Review)

Press Sample


Hi friends! Each year, OPI releases it's "Soft Shades" collection and it is always one I look forward to. Say what you want about nudes and neutrals, but they are my absolute favs!  They have a fun glitter in this year's collection as well!  Check them out:


Put It In Neutral
A sheer mauve-rose shade. This is 4 (yes, 4) layers of polish. 

Petal Soft
A clear base with pink and white matte glitters in different sizes, including some fun flower shaped ones! (1 layer shown here over Put It In Neutral). This glitter was easy to apply with no "fishing" needed- the pieces come out easily and lay flat.

Act Your Beige
A sheer, white-leaning beige. (3 layers shown)

Chiffon My Mind
A white base with a touch of pink with a pretty purple/pink shimmer flash running through it.
 (3 layers shown)


This Silver's Mine
Metallic, warm silver with a slight pink undertone. Warning- if your nails have imperfections like mine do, you may want to use a smoothing base coat first. This definitely shows your flaws. Pretty color still! (3 layers shown)

Make Light Of The Situation
A sheer sparkly, glittery, magical polish that is perfect for layering. 
(Shown here over This Silver's Mine)

And here is what Make Light Of The Situation looks like on it's own (2 layers):

Conclusion: I'm not always a fan of colors that require more than 2 layers, but there are some beauties in this bunch still. I definitely love Petal Soft and want to try layering it over other colors!

What do you think of these?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

OraMD 100% Pure Breath Spray | Trusted Health Products Review

Product Provided For Review

Hi Friends!  I have something different to share with you today!  I recently had the chance to try out OraMD, a 100% Pure Breath Spray from Trusted Health Products. Check it out below:


This spray is made with 100% pure botanical oils of almond, spearmint, and peppermint. One spritz is literally all you need and your mouth feels fresh for at least a good hour. It freshens your breath AND kills the cause of bad breath on contact (ingredients are clinically proven to kill peridontal bacteria!). It definitely has a strong minty taste and feel, but no sweetness or burning sensation. I love keeping this product on me when I'm working closely with clients for makeup or nails. It's easier than popping a mint that only lasts for a few minutes, and it's not obnoxious like chewing gum!

I highly recommend this to anyone looking for fresh breath :)  


For a limited time, the manufacturer is willing to offer my readers one FREE bottle. They said they would love to have my readers try out Breath and agreed to send one bottle FREE if our readers would pay a minimal shipping and handling charge. This is a one-time only offer! Click here to get your FREE bottle now!

NEW! OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Nail Polish System (Pictures & Review)

Press Sample


Hi friends!  I'm back today with a few shades from OPI's new Infinite Shine Gel Effects line!  Here's the 411, straight from the mouths of OPI (via their press release):

"OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effects Lacquer System, offers the rich color, intense shine and lasting wear of gels Рwithout the need for LED-light curing or soak-off removal. Available in 30 new shades (plus Primer base coat and Gloss top coat), Infinite Shine utilizes a three-step system to deliver a high-shine classic cr̬me finish for nails that lasts up to 10 days.

Infinite Shine includes a full range of fashion-forward shades ranging from neutrals to bright reds, oranges and pinks to dark gray, blue and black hues: Pretty Pink Perseveres, From Here to Eternity, She Went On and On and On, Girl Without Limits, Running with the In-finite Crowd, Endurance Race to the Finish, No Stopping Me Now, Unrepentantly Red, Unequivocally Crimson, Relentless Ruby, In Pursuit of Purple, Grapely Admired, Can’t Be Beet!, Raisin’ the Bar, We’re in the Black, Get Ryd-of-thym Blues, Indignantly Indigo, To Infinity & Blue-yond, Withstands the Test of Thyme, To the Finish Lime!, Maintaining My Sand-ity, Tanacious Spirit, Brains & Bronze, Set in Stone, Never Give Up!, Strong Coal-ition, Steel Waters Run Deep, Staying Neutral, It Never Ends and You Can Count on It.


Infinite Shine is applied via a three-step system; first, apply Infinite Shine Primer (Step 1) to prevent staining and increase lacquer durability. Next, select one of 30 shades (Step 2) and paint two thin, even coats for richly-pigmented, vivid color. Finally, finish with Infinite Shine Gloss (Step 3), which features a state-of-the-art gel polymer formula that cures in natural light. Product can be removed easily with Expert Touch Nail Lacquer Remover; no soaking is required."


Here are the shades that I got to try. Each of them applied smoothly and with just 2 layers of polish each. Shown with the Infinite Shine Primer, Color, and Shine Gloss Top Coat:





I absolutely love the shine on these polishes!  I wore Set In Stone for 5 days and I had zero chips, and still a ton of shine.  I highly recommend checking these out.

Esqido Lashes~ Oh So Sweet Mink False Eyelashes (Review & Pictures)

Press Sample

Hi friends!  I have some beautiful lashes from Esqido to show you today!

How gorgeous is the box too!?
I've been hearing about mink lashes for awhile now, but had yet to try them. Now that I have---I'm hooked. ESQIDO mink lashes are handmade and incredibly soft. They truly feel like you have nothing on!  I am wearing the style "Oh So Sweet", which have a flowy, criss-crossed design:






These lashes will run you a bit more than the drugstore variety and it's for a great reason- with proper care, they can be worn up to 25 times! I cannot stress enough how comfortable these were to wear. I usually am very *aware* of the false lashes I wear (they itch, or are heavy and irritating), and I was able to completely forget that I even had these on. Needless to say, I highly recommend these!

Be sure to visit Esqido's website here, and check out their fascinating FAQ's page while you're there!

Have you tried Esqido lashes yet?  Which style is your fav?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
