Holo top coat!

I am excited today, because I get to show you what I just bought on copious. I didn't use any credits since I don't have any but that's fine. I bought some spectraflair topcoats!! I used for the mani colors Julep Georgia, and then Julep Sarah for the accent. On top I added the holo top coat I bought from here. If I understand correctly, the smaller the number the more holo it is. I am using number 35, it's not too in your face so it gives that extra touch :)

I did ask permission of the owner who makes these topcoats before posting on my blog :) If you don't have any of this, BUY IT! You can make any polish holo!!!!!!

Mari Moon Hits Dreamer

I have a beautiful purple polish to show today. This is Mari Moon Hits Dreamer. I bought this off of Llarowe. It took about 3 coats to be this opaque, but it's so gorgeous!

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Chartreuse Chase

I have today a Sally Hansen Insta-Dri polish! This is called Chartreuse Chase. I just received it in my beauty care package from my amazing friend Andrea. It's like a yellow-greenish color with a bit of metallic shimmer. I really like this color, especially for summer!

Sorry for the cut up cuticles on my ring finger :(

Also, I took off word verification on my comments, I didn't even know it was on!

Zoya Starla

Swatch for you today, of a beautiful pink! It did take 4 coats, and I still have a bit of a visible nail line. Usually I don't like polish that does this, but I love this color so much that it doesn't bother me. It is Zoya Starla!

CG Poinsettia and Julep O Canada

Sorry for no posts, had the craziest week ever. I was on vacation from work and went out everyday with friends, or had parties to go to. Back to work tomorrow!

This week I received my July box for Julep. I ended up getting a Golden Box! I was SOO ecstatic because this month they added America and O Canada. because I live in America, I would have only received that polish. But in the golden box, I got both! I was definitely happy to get it my first time this month.

For my mani, I have CG Poinsettia on, topped with O Canada by Julep. I am sorry these look bad, in real life it looks so much better! Macro pictures show ALL your flaws lol..

Now, here was my 4th mani. I only have a camera phone picture, sorry!!

Concrete Minerals review

Today, I want to change it up. Besides nail polish, and nail art I have another obsession. It's makeup. I LOVE eye makeup. I love colors, and blends and everything there is to it. My friend Andrea from Addicted to the Allure of Beauty ALWAYS shows me sales going on. Seriously, she is the sales queen lol. She told me about Concrete Minerals having a sale called "Youtube Guru & Bloggers Love Special". In this sale you can get ANY four mineralized shadows of your choice for only 15 dollars (retail 28 dollars) OR any 4 matte shadows for 15 dollars (retail 32 dollars).

You do have to have a blog or a youtube channel with at least 100 followers to participate. I decided why not, as I am really getting into all these mineral eyeshadows now. Let me tell you, I am SO happy I did.

This is what I got:

Four FULL sized pots, and they even threw in two sample baggies!! Here are the names of the colors I got:

Now for the swatches:

 Left to right: Harlequin, Kismet, Lithuim
Left to right: White rabbit, Zealous, Unity

Let me tell you, these are DROP DEAD GORGEOUS!!! I LOVE them!!

I did this quick eye makeup:

I used Harlequin, and Kismet. Since they are so pigmented, I only added a touch on my eyeshadow brush, and it was like bam. It was gorgeous in person.

I will say I will definitely be buying this brand again. They also threw in a 15% off my next order card and I can't wait to use it!

*I bought this with my own money, and this review is my FULL opinion*
