New first time polish...Color Club, China Glaze, & OPI

Hey beauties!
Hope your all having a great weekend. Ill be doing a post about mine so I won't go into detail on this one. So a couple weeks ago I did a post about my weekend with my mani/pedi at the salon using China Glaze LOL...I fell in LOVE with the color but then come to find out it was discontinued...What?!...Why!?! It is an amazing color and now I am on the search for a good dupe. I have never purchased any of these brands and have never tried any of these 3 brands besides my salon trip. So I was also excited to try new brands and add them to my little polish collection! Here is what I chose:

OPI  Teenage Dream, Color Club Love 'em Leave 'em, Fashion Addict, and Wild at Heart, China Glaze Snow globe.


Teenage Dream has been one I wanted to try for awhile and I really love it! I like it alone and I think it will be pretty over the right color. Great choice for my first OPI!

This is Love 'em or Leave 'em(sticker fell off the bottom) and I was pleasantly surprised by this color. I was not to fond but curious about it so I just went ahead and ordered it. I am glad I did! It is so pretty on.

LOVE Fashion addict...It is so pretty on! Probably my favorite from all of these.

 Wild at Heart was my attempt at a dupe for LOL and sadly it isn't... I do like it and how purple it is but it doesn't have the same effect as LOL....Hopefully soon I will find a good dupe or I am gonna break down and have to pay 25 or more for a bottle! ugh! I really don't want to do that...

I like Snow Globe but not alone...I think it will be super pretty layered over another polish.


Thumb(Teenage Dream) Pointer(Love 'em or leave 'em) Middle (Fashion Addict) Ring(Wild at Heart) Pinky(Snow Globe)



Overall really happy with my purchases...I bought OPI and Fashion addict on ebay and the rest from head2toebeauty.com...the 3 bottles were only 3 dollars a piece. I want to buy tons more now that I seen this site!


Also, I wanted to show where my nail polish goes. My daughter had this shelf unit in her room for the longest time and wasn't using it. I forgot all about it so when she brought it out I said ooh nail polish shelf! I don't own a ton of nail polish so this is perfect for now. It doesn't fit all my polish but most. So I just put the ones I love the most. I have been buying nail polish a lot more lately so I don't know what I am gonna do when this is full!

FOTD: Feelin Kinda Nutty!

Hey beauties =) Hope you all having a great day!
So as I was sitting at my vanity trying to decide on colors to choose. I thought well I should probably give my older colors some love. I have got some fun palettes lately but ignoring some of my older stuff. I chose a few that I have only used a couple of times and I am so happy with how my eyes turned out today. It is a good makeup day for me today =)
*The first color I chose was Wet n Wild Nutty. I didn't care for it when I first got it but then once I used it a couple of times I really like it. I used that as my all over lid color. 
*Then pretty purple(the darkest of the trio) with a maroonish tint to it. It's called Violet Riot trio by mark. I used that in my crease area. I also added a little black in the crease to darken it up. 
*Then used the Wet n Wild creme eyeliner cause I always forget I have that. It is a great creme eyeliner!
*My friend just sent me her Laura Geller blush n brighten in Como from her birchbox because she just wasn't into it so I had to use that and I love it! It is a great highlighter.


I also added some of the purple color under my eyes but it isn't showing as well. I am always hesitant to put color or eyeliner under my eyes...I just don't really care for it on me but Sonja from http://thebeautifullifeofthegirlnextdoor.blogspot.com/ always has amazing looks and always puts the color under her eyes. Now I am no where near as talented as she is with her looks but I always love how the color is under the eyes so I have wanted to try it here and there to see how I like it. I am starting off not as noticeable I guess to get used to it!


I am loving learning from all you bloggers with my eye looks. I have never been so bold with makeup in my life till this blog! Love it!


*Extra*
I took pictures for my FOTD yesterday but never got around to posting it. I probably posted enough yesterday anyways! Thought I would just throw it in this post just cause =)

I was set on using my new Revlon lipstick in Prim-Rose as the main focus. I did use a touch of gloss over it but it is pretty much the same shade as the lipstick. Just a super quick look I did using my metal mania palette before I had to go to my daughters conference.


Last but not least I have to thank my Best friend for all the goodies she just sent me. We unintentionally did a swap type of thing, I had planned on sending her a bunch of makeup I didn't use and she ended up sending me back stuff she didn't use. Also made me some fudge! Ohhhh it is so good its evil! I just want to eat it all at once.

My new obsession: Revlon lip butters!

So I am sure most of you now know of the new Revlon Lip butters. I have searched for them and FINALLY found some at Rite Aid. There wasn't much selection so I only got 3. I just love them. I love how they have the feel of a good lip balm but with the color of lipstick and staying power of lipstick. They really do moisturize my lips and I find no flaking or drying with these.
Of what I could find I chose Peach Parfait, Strawberry Shortcake, and Cotton Candy



 Peach Parfait and Strawberry have shimmer to them and Cotton Candy does not.
 Peach Parfait(one to the left) Strawberry Shortcake(bottom one) and Cotton Candy(one on the right)
 I am wearing Strawberry Shortcake:

Since getting these I have used them nonstop...My favorite is Strawberry shortcake. I love the shimmer to it. Peach Parfait is my 2nd favorite. Great color for when I am not feeling like pink and Cotton Candy is a really pretty pink color but its a brighter one. I know I will use it just not as often as the others. I am really happy with them all and will for sure be getting more! Hopefully I will find more colors in stock when I go back.

Have you tried these yet? Have a favorite?

Zoya: Neeka & Colbie

Hey beauties! 
It's been a busy couple of days for me. I finally decided on a color to paint my kitchen and its been taking all my time. I painted it a really pretty red color and man I didn't know how much of a pain red was to paint. It needed about 4 coats and I am still not done(ran out of paint!) But I love it so I guess it was worth all the trouble! Anyways I got my 2 Zoya polishes from the get 2 free just pay shipping promo they did.

Neeka and Colbie: 




Once again LOVE the colors. Zoya does not disappoint. 
 Neeka is from the Smoke & Mirrors collection
The description on Zoya.com:
Zoya nail polish in Neeka can be best described as: A greyed amethyst with subtle red duochrome shimmer and bright gold glitter accents.? A fascinating, unique shade that manages to be glittery but not too flashy.

Colbie description from Zoya.com:
Zoya Nail Polish in Colbie can be best described as: Blackened warm red with copper-orange undertones with rich metallic shimmer. A vampy red with depth for a dramatic look.


Both are gorgeous and I don't have anything like this so I am a happy girl =) I think out of the 2 Neeka is my favorite. I am sucker for purple polishes and I love how this one is a bit darker.

xoxo,
Miranda
