Mascara - RIMMEL - ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara

I really like this mascara. Sadly, the store no longer carries this packaging and the wand style has changed. I really liked the old wand, but the new one is usable.

Also, they have confusing things like 'black' and 'blackest black' to the color options. What does that even mean? I got black because I wanted black, but maybe I would have wanted blackest black had I …

Nails - Beauty Secrets - Nail Polish Thinner

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/21/2014

I have tried this on vintage polishes (pre-2006) that have all the chemicals that aren't used lately and it works ok. But, I think it works best on newer polishes. A 2002 OPI I have didn't thin very well. I don't know if some of the pigments have broken down or what. I used a couple of drops and several big squirts of the thinner.

However, it has worked great on newer …

Treatments - Sally Hansen - Instant Cuticle Remover

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/11/2014

Cuticles intimidate me. Even with regular pushing and moisturizing, mine were far from perfect looking. The first time I used this I was STUNNED at how well it worked. Its only been a few weeks and my nails are transformed. I am serious, I even have finally gotten rid of a hangnail that I had for literally years. I just thought that was how my nail beds grew. A few times of using the remover and …Read more

Treatments - Sally Hansen - Miracle Cure

4.0

May/28/2014

After a terrible nail fail left my nails splitting halfway up the nail bed and neon yellow stained nails, I went to the local pharmacy and got a bottle of this.

Pros:
* Protein based strengthener which works well for me.
* Super shiny
* Makes my nails feel stronger. It leaves a stretchy bendy finish on the top. It peels off some after a few layers when I file my nails. I …

Shampoo - TRESemmé - Naturals Nourishing Moisture Shampoo

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/19/2014

I was so excited to pick up TRESemme on sale with a coupon for an awesome price, and I thought the naturals would be better for me - less sulfates and all. But no. This stuff will ruin your skin. Seriously.

I can get product build up occasionally, so I thought the stripping people reviewed would be a good thing. It seemed to work ok as an occasional shampoo, but it was totally …

Polishes - OPI - Elephantastic Pink

5.0

Jul/29/2013

Love this bold bright pink! It dries to a super glossy jelly type finish. That does mean that 2 coats had a bit of visible nail line. In fact it takes 4 coats for my nails with whiter tips to not show the line. I usually just leave it at a more sheer look with 2 coats. I love OPI brushes because I can paint my nail in 1-2 swipes and its so easy to avoid streaks.

In my stash, Zoya Lo …

Polishes - China Glaze - Something Sweet - Up and Away Collection

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/13/2013

I found the PERFECT spring pink one a couple of years after it was released. So this is a light pink cream. Slight blue tint to the pink (which makes my slightly yellow based skin look more tan). It went on opaque in two easy coats and has work well. I use CND sticky for my base and Seche Vite for top coat, so wear may be different with different base and top coats.

Long story short …

Polishes - ZOYA - Gaia

Apr/14/2013

This color has gotten a bad wrap. First of all, if you want to love this color, buy some thinner. You will want it. It will want to be streaky when you apply it. A couple of drops of thinner will help a TON.

Second, you have to not hate visible nail line. All you jelly lovers, this is great for you. It doesn't dry streaky like a metallic, but its certainly not a jelly. IF you …

Polishes - China Glaze - High Hopes

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/14/2013

I bought this color last summer as my solution to those awful neons that look bad on everyone. Its bright, but not blind your retina bright. I really hope that trend doesn't continue in 2013. Brights are so much more wearable than neons that NEED a white base.

It took me 3 coats to get full coverage. 2 coats still had visible nail line. So its thinner than some other brand's …

Polishes - ZOYA - happi

I love my pinks, especially ones that stand out in the crowd. Happi does! Its a warm summery pink with a gold shimmer that just POPS with a nice summer tan. I love it on fingers and toes.

Application is great. Nothing really for me to complain about this one, except that it looks better when I have a bit of sun so I need it to be summer again!
