I’ve recently been re-watching some older (2015) YouTube videos from my fave nail polish girls, and one I particularly loved was the “All About Polish” tag they came up with. I’ll link to all their videos below (: I decided to make their video collab into a blog post because the questions were so fun and I loved hearing everyone’s answers!
Here it goes… Continue reading
I’ve been changing my nail polish a lot more recently, and my current mani is by far one the prettiest polishes I’ve ever owned! A couple of weeks ago I was able to snag Deborah Lippmann’s Cleopatra in New York on eBay for $5 (steal!). I have had this polish on my wishlist for years, because of the lovely Zenorah who I follow on Instagram (link), Snapchat, and YouTube (link).
Today I have a super exciting post for me! For the past couple of years I have trying to get my hands on some of the Sinful Colors limited edition glitter toppers (see here!). I gave up after driving to all the Walgreens in my city last year, but today as I stumbled in to Walgreens for some medicine, lo and behold, there it was! Continue reading
Hi all! Long time!
I absolutely love this mani I’ve been dying to try, and what better time than for the concert I am going to this weekend?! Grad school and work have been so rough, this is just the sparkly pick-me-up I needed.
It’s been a while – life has been so crazy. I will definitely start posting more now that school is easing up for the summer months 🙂
When ipsy or myglam started a few years ago, I was one of the first people to sign up! However, I was disappointed and after a few months I cancelled my subscription. Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of buzz surrounding the new ipsy on Instagram and YouTube. It seemed like they had stepped their game up so I decided to give it another go. (click to enlarge!)
To my surprise, I am in awe! This is my June glam bag – I seemed to be in the first batch of people to receive theirs in the mail so I wanted to share. I am very impressed – $10 for all of this! This month I got 2 high end products (IT Cosmetics and Smashbox) and 3 new things to try. I am already crazy over the cream eyeshadow and the nail polish (review coming soon) and not too crazy on the eye pads but I will try them. I’ll be traveling out of the country soon so this was perfect timing.
Contents of my bag (June 2015):
- IT Cosmetics brow power universal eyebrow pencil
- Aurora Gel Effect Nail Polish- shade: 4 Alarm Fire
- Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer- 0.25 fl oz
- Altchek MD Eye Gel Pads (2)
- tre’StiQue Shadow Crayon – shade: Marimoto Pink Pearl
- Cute makeup bag – I think it’s waterproof!
Do you subscibe to ipsy? What did you get this month and what were your thoughts? I am so curious 🙂 I am actually excited about a subscription service for once. (I also got Birchbox for the first month and I am NOT impressed. If you want to see a review or what I got, let me know)

I saw what some of the other bags received and they were great products too. Very generously sized for samples – I don’t think you’d need more.
Hope you are all having a fun summer so far!
It’s been a while – I didn’t expect how crazy the end of the first year in grad school would be! But, the end is near.
Today I am showing my first nail polish ‘unfavourite’ and regret in a while – and it’s Essie’s Cashmere Matte in Just Stitched.
Now, I know 99.9% of people loathe these… but for some reason I thought I could make it work. You might have seen when I hauled it on instagram a couple of days ago (@kisslantavegas) – well, it went right back the next day. Continue reading
Today I am just sharing the latest mani I did. No nail art to show this time – life has been so hectic! To be honest, I am not a huge fan of this manicure. I did want to share it, though, because I tried a peel off base coat for the first time: NYC’s Strip Me Off. This base coat retails for $1.72 or $1.99, but my CVS had a $1 off coupon on the display.
For this, I followed the instructions on NYC’s website.
It went on kind of like a watered down glue, but dried to a clear matte-like finish.
When it’s time to take this manicure off, I’ll try peeling it off and post an update. I sure hope it works… because this nail polish was NOT opaque. Continue reading
