Summer Combination ft. KB Shimmer, Karma's Kiss, Sinful Colors and Finger Paints


Today, I have a nice end of summer look to share with you. This is a cute skittlette and some of my favorite color combinations. I recently won these colors in in a giveaway and I just could not wait to get them all together. I saw them all in the bottles separately and knew they would be great together. This is also my first time using Karma's Kiss so I was super excited to get these on. Totally Tubular is a great glitter polish from KBShimmer. This is a teal blue polish with fuchsia large and small circles, blue hexes, aqua circles and a whole lot of other glitter packed in there. I love this color. It was so nice to apply and the glitter spread so nicely. Sinful Colors Hazard was surprisingly nice. Surprisingly because hazard would remind me of a blindingly bright orange color and this is not. It is a nice smooth, beautiful coral color. I really, really like this color. 
Finally, Karma's Kiss in Tip Top is a linear and scattered holographic top coat. I used…

Fab Fatale Julep…

Project Runway Smokey Emerld Look from Mary Kay

*sponsored* Project Runway is one of the summers hottest shows and Mary Kay has been supplying all of the makeup looks. For this look, Makeup Artist Luis Casco brings the fresh look of the jewel toned shades mixed with dark lips.

First, for full disclosure purposes, I used a primer and foundation as well as my usual brow routine before I applied the look. Overall, I was really happy with all of the products I used. I was curious as how the bold lip would tie in, but I loved it. I will definitely be using this for my fall looks. So, let's move onto what products I used. 

Below is the tutorial from Luis Casco as to which colors to use and how to use them. 

First, I used the Mary Kay® Cream Eye Colorin the shade Meadow Grass on the lid to the crease. Next, sweep Mary Kay® Mineral Eye Colorin Emerald on the outer parts of the lid and crease. I blended those both together to make sure the the harsh lines were gone. The shades are really well matched, so you will not need much blending. N…

Pretty Little Liars Red Coat Tuesday FATAL FINALE!!!

Tonight is the Fatal Finale!! Who will DIE?? Well, all of us faithful watchers all know that every season finale they have said that someone is going to die and well some has, but it usually is someone that we don't care about. I hope it is the same for this season finale as well. Any guesses out there?? With a title of "Taking This One to the Grave" this episode should be interesting. It is part of the theme song for goodness sakes!! I am kind of excited because I think the girls are finally getting sick of Ali. She has been playing little Miss Innocent for too long and everyone is starting to catch right on to it.  Also, apparently the Liars are going to enlist the help of an unlikely friend?!?! What exactly does that mean? I am curious to find out. Whom is this unlikely friend? Mona? Anyway, until next season- or wait Halloween?? I know that we are getting a special Halloween and Christmas episode this year and I am pretty pumped about both!! I am hoping we get to se…

Sally Hansen Color Frenzy Swatches and Review

**Press Sample**
Today, I am going to show you two really great toppers from Sally Hansen Color Frenzy Collection. The line is described as glittering splatter-paint effect polish featuring multidimensional shapes and colors and boy does it do that. 

 Candy Drops
First up, I have Candy Drops. This is a a really delicate glitter.  There are pink hex glitters, holo bar glitters and little silver micros in a clear base. I have two coats on my index and middle fingers and 1 coat on my ring and pinky finger. They are all over Zoya Aubrey. I really, really liked this combo and I still cannot decide if I like 1 coat of glitter or 2 or if it doesn't matter because it was such a smooth application.  The application of this glitter was really smooth. There was nothing chunky to deal with and I didn't have to fish for glitter for an even application.  I would suggest using a thicker topcoat to help seal in that sometimes tricky bar glitter.  Overall, this is a really great glitte…

Zoya Entice Swatches and Review

**Press Sample**

Hello All!! I have another great set of Zoya Fall Polishes for you. There are another two NEW sets of fall polishes collections coming out. I have one of them here for you today. All of these polishes were awesome. They all coated evenly and fully in one coat. By now, you should all know my two coat weirdness. In case you don't, it is that I have to have two coats on at all times. It's just a Color Me So Crazy thing. So, I am wearing 2 coats in all pictures below. 

First up I have Claire. Claire is like a brownish reddish, maroonish. Does that make sense?? This is a very deep red color that is perfect for those cold fall days. There is one coat used with no top coat in the pictures below.

Next is Geneviev. I really like this color. It is like a slate grayish blue. It reminds me of a cartoon elephant. Also, my bottle says "Geneviev" on the bottom. I am not sure if it is a miss-spelling or they ran out of room?? I did not use a top coat on any of the p…
