Sparkles by Julie- Peachy Jelly Belly

Image
Sparkles by Julie is a brand new indie to me. I have never heard of this brand before and I am super excited to get to try it. I was given it as a RAOK from a very lovely girl that goes by Samantha! I have been really digging the lighter pink polishes and this is a really cute glittery pink-peachy polish. This is a shimmer polish with different holo glitters in it. This polish went on very smooth. Tricky for the eye, because it looks lumpy in the pictures, but it was not at all. I am not sure if maybe the shimmer comboed with the glitter makes it look like this, but it was a very pretty color.

Color Club- Over the Moon

Image
* I won this polish in a random giveaway. It was not purchased by me.
Here's another one of the great Color Club Collection that I won from The Nail Calls giveaway a couple months ago. Show Karen some love ya'll! Anyway, I won 6 and I have slowly- VERY SLOWLY- been showing them to you. I did do one massive swatch fest with them here, but I love them so much, I need to show them individual love! I do not like blue, in general, but any color that is a holo is great in my book. Over the moon is such a great color. I will be revisiting this one once I get some sun and it's not 100 degrees outside. Inside it has a nice shine, but outside is amaze!! I may have to do another impromptu photo sesh! Anyway, enjoy!!

Blog Babysitting from Wishes of a Blue-Eyed Girl

Hello, Color Me So Crazy readers!!  My name is Julie, and I blog over at Wishes of a Blue-Eyed Girl.  When Brigitte asked some bloggers if they would man the post while she was gone, I knew I wanted to help out.  What I didn't know, however, is what to share with you guys.  I went through several options, and decided to go with a safe one - stamping with China Glaze and OPI.  The colors I used were OPI Dulce de Leche and China Glaze Dress Me Up.  Let's get to it, shall we?
*I was not financially compensated for this post.  All items in this review were purchased by me for my own use.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.  For more information, please see my Disclosure Policy in the tab above.*
First, let's do a little review of OPI's Dulce de Leche.  For those who may not normally read my blog, you may notice that my review style is a little, well, wordy.  As a consumer, I love to read reviews that are in-depth and detailed with detailed photographs…

HYD for Men from iFabbo

Image
*This product was given to me complementarity from iFabbo for me to complete a fair and honest review. I have not been compensated in any way from HYD. 

HYD for Men is an awesome smelling product for mens shaving needs. And... it does leave skin so f#@king soft! My husband is the kind of guy that has a 5:00 shadow at 1pm. I was so excited when this opportunity arose, because I am the one that always gets the good products- now it's his turn. I asked him to tell me a little bit about shaving and his experiences. He told me that he does not like it and it often times takes too long or hurts or something goes wrong with his razor that he just doesn't do it anymore. He was very reluctant to try this for me in fear of the same things happening.


I really like the smell and the feel of all of the HYD products. I tried so hard to get him to let me put his pictures on the post, but he did not agree to it. I can tell you that he really likes these products and coming from a man that is…
