Manicure Monday: Ocean Nails

Hey there polishaholics I have and exciting Manicure Monday post for y'all today, I hope you enjoy...
Natural Light (No Flash)
I am a nail art buff, so when I saw a similar nail art look on Pinterest I knew that I had to recreate it.
This was actually quite an easy manicure to recreate because it required no tools, basically all you had to do was layer several colours to make a beautiful aerial view of an ocean.

Favourites Friday: Benefit Watts Up Highlighter

Watts Up guys???

Today's Favourites Friday is my Benefit Watts Up Highlighter. I've been in love with this creamy, champagne coloured highlighting stick ever since I got it in a VIB birthday perk from Seporah. So yes this is a sample size product. I've had this highlighter for over five months and I use it almost daily, and it looks like I've barely used it at all, and again this is a sample, I cannot even comprehend how long the full size of this product would last!

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue

 Today I am going to be doing a review on the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Royal Blue. I picked this mascara up at Rite Aid for just over $5 on a recent trip to New York City.

Bioderma: What is it & Is it really worth the hype???

I've heard tons and tons about Bioderma all across the internet for a little while now and i've always wanted to try it! Beauty Guru's on youtube like FleurDeForce and Missglamorazzi swear by it so of course I had to check it out!

100mL mini bottle $6.00 Canadian
First and foremost what is Bioderma:

Well Bioderma Créaline Sensibo H20 Cleansing Soultion or just simply Bioderma for short is a French solution micellaire which is primarily sold French pharmacies and a few other places like Shoppers Drugmart in Canada which is where I got my Bioderma. Now what is Bioderma you ask, well its a cleansing water or soultion micellaire, and basically all that means is there are small oil particles suspended in the soultion, this gives Bioderma that amazing ability to absorb or "eat up" your make up instead of smudging it all over your face, and this quality is also what allows Bioderma to have a water-like formulation and consistancy.

Now is Bioderma Sensibio H2O really worth the hype....

Seche Vite Substitute? - Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Topcoat...

I am a nail polish addict, a self confessed polishaholic, I change my nail polish very regularly, and I do tons of nail art. Therefore I want my nail polish to stay on for as long as possible and look its greatest and that responsibility lies to the TOPCOAT.

For years I have been using the Seche Vite topcoat and it is amazing, it dries your nails to the touch in seconds and it is by far the quickest drying topcoat. Also its thick and glossy so when applied to the nails it leaves a salon finish and because it is so thick when doing nail art one does not need to worry about the polish being smuged or "pulled" thus ruining the design. Overall I love Seche Vite, so you may be wondering why I would stop using this magical topcoat. Well as the old saying goes "If it looks too good to be true it probably is" and this is the case for Seche Vite. Seche Vite contains several very dangerous chemicals that can cause birth defects and reproductive harm, and I absoultly do not want these chemicals in or on my body so I have to find a substitute.

Liebster Blog Award

So today after finally getting my internet back, and finally being able to blog again I realized that I was nominated for the Liebstar Award by Jen, from The Tickled Glitter and I also really want to thank her because it was such a kind gesture. Anyways I was curious, what is the Liebstar Award so I did a bit of research and this is what I came up with.


The Liebstar Award is an award that helps bring recognition to blogs with under 20 followers, and it’s a great opportunity to find new blogs.

Favourites Friday: Garnier Intensive 7 Day Repairing Lotion Shea Butter

Today I wanted to introduce a new little series on my blog and it’s called Favourites Friday, with this series I want to share one of my favourite products every Friday.
The favourite I’m going to talk about today is my new favourite body lotion the Garnier Intensive 7 Day Repairing Lotion Shea Butter. I really love this product, its inexpensive and really shows results. On the bottle it says that skin is hydrated for 24 hours, and although that is stretching it a little bit, I know that this lotion lasts for over 12 hours on my skin. I can put it on in the night and still feel it the next morning or for the whole day as a matter of fact.

Revlon Photoready Skinlights: Review + Swatches

Today I got my hands on one of the new or technically re – released Revlon Photoready Skinlights in the colour 400 Bronze Light. I say re – released because Revlon discontinued the Skinlights in 2008 and they’ve finally brought it back. There are 4 colours in the collection, 100 Bare Light, 200 Pink Light, 300 Peach Light and of course 400 Bronze Light, which is the darkest shade and the colour that I purchased. I really love this product because it goes great with my skin tone and actually shows up against my darker complexion which cannot be said for many products.
