My Valentine's Day Gift : Too Faced Boudoir Eyes

Hello Friends! This Valentine's Day when talking to my husband I decided I would actually give him an idea of what I would like. I'm sure everyone has gotten something on a past VDay that they haven't loved so I figured if I gave him this idea then he would know exactly what I would like without question. I asked for the new Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Collection, I knew that I loved my Natural Eyes set so I could only imagine how much I would adore this one & I was right I'm so in love & I've worn it every day since I've had it! I thought I'd take a few picture of the packaging & swatches so those will be below, Enjoy!
In The Buff, Satin Sheets, Birthday Suit
Fuzzy Handcuffs, Sugar Walls, Lap Dance

Voulez-Vous, Garter Belt, French Tickler

My CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss Collection

Hello Friends! Today I have pictures of my CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss Collection, so far I have 10 & I am absolutely in love with this product. I love the formula, wear time, color selection, & packaging. Covergirl.com claims this product is base coat, high-gloss color, & chip resistant top coat all in one, I can't say much for the top coat because I apply Seche Vite on top of all of my polishes out of habit but I do enjoy these. I have 2 blog posts with pictures of the shades I've already worn here and here so feel free to check those out as well as my pictures below. As usual Click the Images to make them bugger. Enjoy!

Tips & Toes of the Week 2/16

Thursday was Valentine's Day so I knew that I had to wear pink on my nails at some point & it literally took me 3 days to choose which shade of pink I wanted to wear! I couldn't even look at my polish because I knew that I had more than enough pink to choose from & I am most definitely not a "decision maker". I ended up comprimising with a pale sheer pink & glitter accent nail, both from the 2012 OPI "Pink of Hearts" set.

Monday - my tips looked like this:

OPI "Pink of Hearts"
"I Think in Pink"
"You Glitter Be Good to Me"

& on Friday they changed to this:

OPI "Pink Friday"

OPI Nicki Minaj Collection "Pink Friday"

Tips & Toes of the Week 2/9

This week's nails were simple & I didn't really change up as much as usual because I had a pedicure done last week. I opened a new bottle of Seche Vite and it was just so amazing that I was removing my manicures before any chipping.

The first part of my week my tips & toes looked like this:
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "Lacey Lilac"
OPI "Dutch Tulips"
And the last part my toes stayed the same & my tips changed to this:
Revlon "Minted"
Thanks for coming by!

Sally Beauty Haul

Sally Beauty was having a great deal for Orly polish as well as an additional 50% off of already marked down clearance. The deal went like this: If you spend $3 on anything in store you receive a free full size Orly polish so I was ecstatic & couldn't wait to combine this deal with the clearance. I chose the China Glaze "Holiday Charms" set, Orly "Red Flare" mini, and a full size Orly "Rage" for free as well as the Orly "Holiday minis" set and "Luxe" for my freebie with that purchase. I also had to go to WalMart so I picked up Revlon "Girly", which is beautiful & totally different from anything in my collection. This week I'm hoping to have pictures on here of my collection, so check back for that as well as my Tips & Toes for this week, tomorrow!

Tips and Toes of the Week 2/2

I'm starting a new weekly post to my list, I figure since I go through 3-4 polishes a week & feel like I am constantly taking pictures of my nails that I should actually do something with those pictures. Through the week I will take images of my manicures/pedicures and post through Instagram but at the end of the week (Saturday) I will compile a post for my blog of the polishes I wore that week. Stay tuned for more Nail of the Week's! Here is this past week...Enjoy!

Most of the week this is what my Manicure/Pedicure looked like:
CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss
Mint Mojito (toes)
Lav-endure (tips)
 After that I went with:
CoverGirl Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Gloss
Smokey Taupe (tips)
Finally on Saturday I got a professional pedicure of:
OPI Dutch Tulips (toes)
And my at-home manicure is:
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Lacey Lilac
