Beautisol Self Tanning Mousse

Image
*I received this product for free for my honest review. 
Press Release


I just joined iFabbo and I am super excited to start reviewing the products they offer. The first one that I received is the Beautisol Medium Self Tanning Mousse with Pure Scent. The packaging is very cute. The bottle is simple, yet very attractive. With the actual bottle came an Application Mitt as well as an Application Guide. The guide was really great because it can be very confusing as to how much product to apply on certain areas of your body. One of the many great aspects to Beautisol is their website. It is so informative. You can really tell that the entire Beautisol teams really believes in their product and it shows with the quality of their product and the web material. So, back to the Application Guide. I misplaced my guide the first time I applied and I did a web search for "Beautisol Application Guide" so that I could make sure I was doing the application correctly. The first thing that pop…

Tri Polish Challenge- May

Image
Ladies!! Last installment of the May Tri-Polish Challenge! I really wanted to do a Duquesne themed mani for quite some time. For those of you who don't know, I am a two time alumnae from Duquesne University. I love that institution a lot! I had so much fun there and met so many great people. Many of whom I stay in close contact with today. The Duquesne Duke is the mascot and I was not about to attempt to draw him on my nails, but I can do a modified "D". The colors matched Duquesne's colors pretty well, so I went for it! I hope you all enjoy and GO DUKES!

Nail Challenge Collaborate Stamping 4

Warning-- Pic heavy because I am in love with this mani! I love stamping, but I really struggled with this set of challenges. I think my body is in summer mode! Poo...Anyway, I am stepping it up- for real this June! I have to set my June Goals so that I can have another giveaway for all my favs!! Anyway, I used the new stamping sheet I got from my winnings. I am in soooo much love with this combo, as well. I got Zuza in my last Glossybox with a special code. I am sooo pumped I got this color. Zuza has a really funky texture, but it looks gorge once it's on your nails. I was a little nervous about the Essie- Penny Talk being too think for stamping, but it is now on my faves list for stamping. It was the perfect consistency and stamped beautifully. The only issue is that it was really hard to get off the plate when I tried to clean. It took a little extra elbow grease. So... Enjoy!

Tri Polish Challenge- May 3

Here is installment #3 of the May colors for the Tri Polish Challenge. I have been having so much fun with these. I asked my Facebook followers which designs they would like to see and I based those on which art I used for Mays colors. I am still trying to decide what I want to do for the last one, but I may do a Duquesne themed mani. Not sure yet. Anyway, I love dots so I decided to do a crazy dot mani. Enjoy!! Ohh... one more thing. That little bottle I am holding there is Essies Apricot Cuticle Oil. It smell just wonderful and feels great. I am in the process of switching my nail care routine and I included the cuticle care routine as well. I was using Nail Tek and now that I ran out, I want to change it. I often change my brands of beauty products every once in a while to get a fresh start and give my skin/hair/nails a new taste. I swtiched to Orly- Nail Defense, Seche- Base Coat and Essie- Apricot Cuticle Oil.

First Pittsburgh Sports Nails!!

Image
So, I am back in my Sports Manis! It's that time of year. Of course, since Finnigans is closed, I will not be doing as many as before. But... I love my Pittsburgh sports so I will be representing properly. Anyway, I had my company baseball game yesterday so I decided to do some Pittsburgh Pirates skittles on my nails.For some reason, my Pittsburgh Nails always take so long to do. Im not sure if it's becuase they are usually skittles or if it is because I have so many colors that I use. Either way I love the colors that our sports teams have. Black and Yellow is such a great combo! Anyway, without further ado.... Pittsburgh Pirates nails!!

Tri-Polish Challenge May 2

Image
Ahh... This set of colors is super fun for me because it is pretty close to my University colors and my co-workers and students are loving it...So for the last one-- maybe. I will be doing an "I Love Duquesne" mani! Well for now, I promised my followers a water Marble. This is about my 5th one that I have done- ever. They are getting better, but I still feel like I can't make it through all 5 fingers without something going seriously wrong. This time wasn't bad, but it wasn't awesome either. Well here is my 2nd installment of May's Tri-Polish challenge!!
