Essie nail polish

Hello my lovlies! I do enjoy making my horizons wider with this beauty blog. If it isnt obvious by the picture in today’s blog, i will be reviewing the nail side of the beauty world.

Now i always loved painting my nails, as a child i loved how i could express my colorful self through nail polish. It also meant bonding time with my mother which i always loved .

As i began my musical carrier i sort of shifted away from nail polish, it seemed every time i painted my nails, the second i brought out my violin they would chip. And then as i got into middle school and high school i realized i have zero patinces to sit and wait for nail polish to dry!

On the special moments that i do paint my nails Essie is always my favorite brand of nail polish. I love the wide variety of colors that they have. Not to mention the layer dry relatively fast.

And as many of you have probably realized over the years, i really really love the color pink. Out of all the pink Essie shades this one is my favorite. I love how it isnt like a hot hot pink, its a pink that can go with a lot of my outfits, its very natural looking, not a bold color that draws attention to me. Also blush pink is one of my favorite shades of pink in the world. At first i didnt like how the consistancy was so thin, one of the things that makes painting my nails such a bother is when i have to sit and do layers. I dont know if its just me, but when i paint my nails i want to be done as soon as humanly possible. In my opinion thicker consistancies of nail polish tend to take less time. Sure it takes a bit longer to dry, but at least i dont have to sit for hours on end waiting for each layer to dry. After using Essie for a few years now i’ve grown to actually liking the thinner nail polishes. My impatient self has learned that good things come those who wait.

Overall, i really do like this nail polish, and the Essie brand in general!

Beauty Empties: May-June!

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog, today I’m going to share all the products I finished in the last couple months. Lets get into it:

Makeup:


w3ll people expressionist mascara – This is one of my favorite mascaras, it is very black and gives you long defined lashes that are very fluttery and natural. Definitely need to repurchase!

Smashbox Brow Tech to go in Taupe – I really enjoyed this, but after finishing two full sizes I’m just over it, and I’m going to try something else!

Physicians formula Eye booster eyeliner – This has a very thin and watery formula. I prefer my other eyeliner pens so would not repurchase!

Skincare:


Juice Beauty Antioxidant Serum – I’ve been loving this for my skin lately! It makes me really glowy and gets rid of any dryness. Picking up the full size for sure.

Burts Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes – These were nice makeup removing wipes, if you are looking for some you might like these. I have a makeup eraser though and because it is less wasteful than wipes I’m going to stick to that instead!

Burts Bees Flavor Crystals Lip Balm – This was a lovely lip balm. It kept my lips moisturized, smelled like pineapple, would repurchase!

 

Bodycare:

Haul: New Purchases from Marshalls/Ulta

Hello guys! Welcome back to our blog! A week ago Christine and I went to Marshalls, and I went to Ulta with my mom, so of course I picked up plenty of makeup, skincare, haircare and nail polish (so did Christine)! This is kind of a massive haul, let’s just get into it –

Makeup:


Tarte Gifted Mascara in black – I’ve always wanted to try this so I just decided to get it!

Itcosmetics no tug waterproof gel liner pencil in black – This is my favorite black pencil liner, and I repurchased it!

Ellentracy ultimate lengthening mascara – I may have also bought this for the packaging, but I am looking for a really good lengthening mascara and I hope this is the one.

Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipstick in Catnip – This was such a bargain! I love the deep pink shade!

Skincare:


Valjean Labs Glow Vitamin C and Magnesium Facial Serum – This packaging was so cute, which I honestly the reason that I bought this, but the ingredients sound great!

Acure Radically Rejuvenating Facial Scrub – I’m always looking for a new exfoliator, so I am super excited to try this one.

Bodycare:


Ultabeauty gradual tan lotion in bronze glow – This is a self tanner I decided to try, it is a gradual tan and develops slowly.

Schmidts natural deodorant  in the scent rose and vanilla – I found this while I was there and decided to try it out, the scent is really nice!

Haircare:


Renpure coconut cream curl defining cream – This looks so good, I can’t wait to use it in my hair!

Nail Polish:


Zoya Naked Manicure Perfector – This is a pretty nude-white polish that I picked up for prom! (Get ready with us is coming on monday!)

Zoya nail polish in Ryan – The dark blue shade of this was really calling my name for fall or for winter so I picked it up!

Chinaglaze nail polish in White on White – I’ve been loving white nails, the white nail polish I owned before this was so goopy and not good quality so I have replaced it with this!

That is it for my haul of new products. Let me know in the comments what you want to see reviews on, or tell me something you’ve just purchased!
