Alpha Mani Scrounging for the Letter U

Image
**Bought It**

This weeks marks the tail end of this little alpha adventure. You see what I did there?? Anyway, I had one heck of a time trying to scour through my stash for a U polish. I did manage to find one lonely Ulta polish, so thank god for that!! I am already stressing about next week which is V. These are the times when I wish I would have cataloged my stash like a good little nail blogger! I am just going to have to start digging through the masses now, I guess.  Again, if you have any brand suggestions or polish name suggestions that start with V, you let me know in the comments below!! Anyway, I love this color. It's a super cool, sherbert looking peach color. I matted it and added some cute bow decals from YouPolish. I actually just picked up a variety pack plus a Mommy and Me pack from YouPolish so I will be using them a lot in my upcoming looks. Colors Used:
Ulta- Peach Parfait

Celebrating 4th of July with a Little Help from NYC New York Color

Image
**Press Samples**
4th of July for me is always a fun, family party filled day. I always like to do something crazy and wild with my makeup and my nails. This year, NYC New York Color gave me some fun colors to play with to be able to do this with. I am excited about this and I can't wait to wear it again on this holiday.
I got 2 City Proof 24 Hour Waterproof Eye Shadow Crayons. One the color East River Romance (above) and  Rockefeller Center Snowflakes (below). Perfect for the upcoming holiday!! I will be using the blue ALL of the time! I love it for a lower lid liner. Perfect for summer. Vibrant color has never been easier. This retractable chubby has a unique, pigment- packed formula for 24- hour waterproof wear. Color glides on smooth and stays crease- proof all day and night. Try using it as a liner, or smudge with your finger for a smoky effect. There are 12 colors all together and they are only $2.99. I think this would be perfect for a night out because they are waterproo…

Alpha Mani Presents the Letter T

Image
**Gifted**
Today, I had (for real this time) a rough time finding a polish in my stash that starts with the letter T. Wouldn't you think there would be a million brands that start with the letter T that I own? Well, the answer is a big fat NO! I have 1, ONLY 1. This is a vampy color, but I forgot about it so I am glad that I found it. This is a deep blue, very deep color with a silver shimmer in it.  This polish was gifted to me as a ROAK in one of my groups. I have never heard of this brand and it is almost impossible to find online but I have one. Have you ever heard of this brand? Am I missing something that I never have? Colors Used: Tivoli- NP178
 Next week I have the letter U. So... unless you have any polish brands that start with the letter U, I will be doing a showcase with a polish that has a name that starts with the letter U.

IPSY Glam Bag- One of These Months... I'll Get It Right!!!

Image
**Affiliate Links**
Guys, I promise that one of these months I will get this up on time. This month has been super crazy. Between my son's baseball playoff extravaganza and my daughters ballet recital, I have been running around like taxi cab mom superwoman. On top of those things, work has been SUPER crazy plus some other things I have been literally flying by the seat of my pants. So, let's hope July is a little smoother for me! Lord knows I need a vacation in the worst way!!  First up, I have the J.Cat Liptitue Hydrating Lip Stain. This is a semi-matte lip stain that I got in the color Blow Your Mind. Sorry about this crummy picture but I just moved into a new blog space and I am trying to rework my lighting structure so forgive me while I adjust.   Anyway, this is supposed to last 24 hours. The gloss doesn't but that stain sure does. You may have to add a little more clear gloss if you want to add a little more moisture to it.You can get 25% off any J.Cat purchase by …

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents Superheroes

Image
**This Post May Contain Press Samples**
Ugh!! I tried so hard to make it through this month and, welp, I only made it through 2 posts so far! I am going to try to squeeze at least one more in but we are really cutting it tight. This one may be a little harder to guess because it is straight artistic without any logos. So... good luck! I used the three colors that are usually used but in their glitter forms instead of their real colors that are used to represent this Superhero. Usually it is red and blue and then the logo is in yellow. I did a fun skittle with all of them.  Can you guess yet? Ok, if you don't get it by the end of the post, I will tell you! Think super abstract! I love these colors together and I am super sad that I don't use Sweet Peakcock more. It's such a great, sweet looking beautiful blue. Colors Used: KB Shimmer- Sun & Games Orly- Sweet Peakcock Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer- Sail Her, Don't Sink Her Did you get it? It's Superman!! Yes, I told yo…

What Do YOU Use Before You Wash Your Face? Give Borghese Facial Oil and Cleansing Water A Try

Image
**Press Samples**
I love these two products. I have been using these two for about 3 weeks now and I am so happy with them. I have been using both a facial oil and a cleansing water as part of my nighttime routine for about a year now. It's a pre-cleansing routine that has greatly improve my skin. I have been working so hard to decrease my pore skin and increase the overall appearance of my skin.  This extra step has absolutely helped with this.
Fango Active Mineral Micellear Water


This type of product has been all the buzz this year and I have been on the hunt to find my favorite. This one for sure has been added to MY nighttime routine because it is just so luxurious, as ALL Borghese products are. This is great as a pre-cleansing step and I absolutely adore the way my skin feels before I wash my skin. This is a makeup remover and toner all in one. It contains all sorts of goodies and is infused with skin-soothing ingredients such as Sweet Almond, Avocado and Grapeseed Oils to c…
