Quick Post: Nails of the Day

I am becoming quite fond of Forever 21’s Love and Beauty nail polishes…I’ve been wanting to try a baby blue shade, but the creamy baby blues look a little odd on my skin so I thought I would try this one instead. It’s a light blue with gold shimmers in it…Not really a fall color but it brightens my gloomy days!!

Love and Beauty: Light Aqua

Fall Nails

I combed through my nail polish collection to see if I had the essential colors for Fall, and I do! Rusts/coppers, nudes, blues, greens, reds/corals and gunmetals are all in this fall. I’ve swatched all of the colors you will need, and even added some colors to keep things interesting. Personally, I can’t walk around with dark colors on my hands for several months (so depressing!) so I had to throw some wildcards into the mix.

Starting at the top with the black, I will list the colors and brands clockwise:

  1. Liquid Leather – China Glaze
  2. Revvvolution – Color Club
  3. Gunmetal – Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear
  4. Pink (It’s actually a peach color)- Love and Beauty
  5. Hi Def – Sephora
  6. Monsooner or Later – OPI
  7. Hot Magenta – Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear
  8. Purple Panic – China Glaze
  9. Let’s Talk – Sinful Colors
  10. Yoga-Ta Get This Blue – OPI
  11. Frostbite – China Glaze
  12. Blue It – Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear
  13. Ocean View – Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear
  14. Read My Palm – Sephora
  15. The Real Teal – Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear
  16. Dance Teal Dawn – Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear
  17. Emerald City – Revlon
  18. Teal We Meet Again – Sephora

June – July Beauty Haul/Favorites

I’m not going to list all of the beauty products I’ve purchased over the past 2 months, but I will list the ones I think are noteworthy. Let’s start with the make-up…

Make-Up:

Urban Decay Naked Palette – I’ve been wanting this palette for quite some time. It has very nuetral colors that work well for me since I don’t wear bright colors on my eyes. It comes with an eyeshadow brush and a small bottle of Urban Decay Primer Potion. Great for brown smokey eye looks. (Sephora, $48)

Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner Pen – I love this eyeliner. It goes on very smooth and is quite easy to use. I have oily lids, and with many other eyeliners, if I don’t have on eyeshadow my eyeliner transfers onto my upper lid, which looks terrible. This eyeliner doesn’t do that at all. Loves it! (Target, About $7)

Maybelline Falsies Flared – I would def say that this mascara is comparable to many department store mascaras (i.e. YSL Faux Cils, which I’ve previously blogged about). This mascara elongates my lashes and gives me a lot of volume without clumping. (Target About $6)

Nail Polish:

 

Here is the list of the nail polish from left to right:

  1. China Glaze – Fairy Dust (Sally’s, About $3.99)
  2. Revlon – Pink Chiffon (Target, About $3.75)
  3. China Glaze – Flip Flop Fantasy (Sally’s, About $3.99)
  4.  Forever 21’s Love and Beauty – Light Aqua (Forever 21, $2.80)
  5. Forever 21’s Love and Beauty – Pink (Forever 21, $2.80)
  6. Forever 21’s Love and Beauty – Periwinkle (Forever 21, $2.80)
