Pippa

When I received my polishes from Zoya the other day, I had to try the brightest color in the bunch first. Let me introduce you to Pippa! It is an amazing, creamy, bright yellow! I posted in my instagram page and it received lots of love!! In the picture below I used two coats, and the formula was amazing. This is the perfect yellow for Spring/Summer:

New Beauties

I went to the mall the other day with my Mom and picked up a few beauty items. I’ve been obsessing over Dior’s new Addict Extreme lipsticks every since I saw them on Huda’s blog not too long ago. I purchased Plaza, which is a  creamy pink that felt so smooth and moisturizing on my lips when I tried it on. What I hate about regular lipsticks is that the colors are often too much. Plaza is gorge and is buildable. You can pack more on if you want more color, but it isn’t overwhelming. Loves it!

I tried on Lucky (a subtle red) as well and I will probably purchase that one later. I had to have Plaza ASAP! Lol…I also purchased the Dior Show Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum since I’ve heard that it is good for priming and conditioning your lashes.

From Sephora I purchased the Benefit They’re Real Mascara (which I have heard great things about) along with a Chloe fragrance (rollerball). Because I already have a lot of perfume, spending $110 on a regularly sized Chloe perfume was neither logical nor a priority at the moment. But the fragrance is amazing! If you haven’t smelled it, please run to Sephora or Nordstrom and try it out.

I can’t really offer a review on any of these products yet, but as I get the opportunities to use them, I will report back to you all.

I hope everyone has a blessed day!!! Muah! XOXO

Mermaid’s Dream

Deborah Lippmann’s Mermaid’s Dream seems to be sold out everywhere! Luckily I was able to get my hands on this color from her Spring 2012 Resort collection. I had placed an order with Nordstrom several weeks ago, and it was taking forever!! Finally I had received a “delayed” email, which meant that they didn’t have one anywhere! To make a long story short, I cancelled my order with Nordies and ordered it from Zappos. I swear it took only 2 days for me to receive it in the mail, which I thought was impressive. After painting my nails with it, I am glad that I went through the hassle of getting it. The color is a gorgeous sea foam green with blue hexagonal and small gold glitters. Even though I had to use three coats to reach full opacity, you may be able to get away with just two. Check out the pictures below:

My little niece thought it was so pretty so I painted her nails as well. Lol:

Zoya: Buy 3, Get 3 Free!!

I had to pass this information on to you all…On Zoya’s blog today, they announced that they have another amazing promotion going on right now. If you purchase three polishes, you will get three additional polishes for free. You must use the code Spring3 and your order must be placed by 11:59pm (EST) on Wednesday, March 14. The offer is only valid for US addresses and on www.zoya.com.

Due to the fact that they just had a promotion not too long ago where I received two free polishes and only had to pay for the shipping, I am really beginning to like Zoya and their infamous promotions…Lol. BTW their formulas are amazing…I am thoroughly impressed.

Happy shopping!!! XOXO

Newbies

I went to Pentagon City (a mall in Virginia, for those of you who don’t live in the DMV) and Nordstrom Rack last week and bought a few items…I also received these nail polishes in the mail two weeks ago…Deborah Lippmann’s Sweet Dreams (pink with flakies in it) was on sale on http://www.hsn.com and Butter London’s Tart with a Heart (gold/nude glitter) I purchased from http://www.Nordstrom.com with my Nordstrom Note!

I love Vigoss jeans from Nordies BP!

A Juicy Couture iPad case that I will be carrying as a clutch!

Finally found this Michael Kors Hollywood fragrance in Nordstrom Rack! Loves it!

This Week’s Flix

I am totally obsessed with Instagram. I have been posting pictures like crazy on there. I just wanted to show you all, who are not or cannot follow me, what I have been up to this week.

First, I am doing a challenge on Instagram where I have to post a picture of polishes that I haven’t tried/swatched yet. This is our collective effort to use the polishes we have (especially the ones we haven’t used yet) before buying more polish. Here are some of my swatches thus far:

Color Club's New Bohemian, Julep's Oscar, China Glaze's Sugar High, and Misa's Bikini With A Martini...

Here are all of my untried/haven't swatched nail polishes...I know...it's out of control! Lol...Don't judge me!

Here is another color I swatched before the challenge began:

Orly's Stone Cold...A gorgeous shimmery blue...

I also posted some pictures of a few accessories I purchased this week:

Scarves from TJ Maxx...Perfect for Spring...

A statement ring from Nordstrom Rack...

I'll discuss what I purchased from Nordies and Juicy later on this week...Lol

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!! XOXO
