July Ipsy Glam Bag Review!

 My Ipsy bag has come and I love it!
 I think this is my favorite bag that they have had since I joined.
There are a few things that I don't love but I think the bag is making me over look them, it is just so cute.
I love all things that exfoliates so when I saw this in a sneak peek on their facebook page I was instantly in love and crossing my fingers I would get it. I have use it once and it is love!
 I am taking full advantage of the discount offered and already have an order in place with them.
 I have yet to use this but I live in Arizona and will be driving to California in less then 2 weeks to drop my sister off who came to saty with me thing summer. I am going to pop it in my purse and take it with!
 I was so very excited about the Benefit Tint Gloss that was in the sneak peek and was hoping I would get it but sadly when I looked in my glam room and saw that I would be getting this and not the gloss. I was then hoping for the Coral Crush that was listed on the products page on Ipsy. I was so very very happy when I saw it in my bag. This is my favorite item from this month and I'm not even a fan of Pop Beauty!
 I would have never bought this so thank you Ipsy for putting this in my bag!
You can find this look on Ipsy here, like it to help me win this month challenge! 
 I have received a few big sexy hair things since I have joined and I am too excited about em. I gave away one, never used another but I did give it a try since the humidity was about 40% last week.
 Thanks to my pa I get a bit of a fro in such weather and as you can see by this bad cell phone picture this stuff works! I might actually by more of this if I see it at Target.

 I was very excited for this and I had read a few good reviews and other blogs.
 I was hoping for matte colors but a few shimmery ones came with purple. 
Since I did just dye my hair pink and purple I wasn't bummed to see it.
 I have Malibu in the corner of my eye and San Fran starting in the middle on the upper and lower lashline into the crease of my eye and Hollywood in my crease going to my brow. Malibu is the only shining star in this trio.

 Pretty In Plum by Nicole by OPI was an extra goodie from their referral program that just started.
I just did my nails so I will play with this in a few days.
These are the other goodies from the glam room that were not in my bag but others got.
They gave out more Nailtini polish.
 They have contests with the items in the bags so I wanted in on the Nailtini one and did this!
I had won the first contest I was in from the first month I joined so with "Bordeaux" from the nail cocktail collection I won I did this! The inspiration for this look is from my inspired by water look here.

New Polish- Tip Top Nails!

I received some polish from Tip Top Nails South Africa just before my move to Arizona in April. They had messaged me on my fan page on Facebook a few weeks before my move and asked if I would like to try out their polish... I never turn down trying new polish!
A few weeks after the message I had a small box by my door from South Africa :) As soon as I brought the box in I could smell that something was not right though. Sadly, I was right, one of the bottles did not make it.
 It looked like such a lovely silver too.  I really didn't have time to play with the other colors other than to do a swatch. I just finished unpacking my office last week and my Tip Top nail polish was in the last box! I cleaned off my nails and did my favorite manicure, dots with dots.
You can find my tutorial for  it here.
The blue is Astronaut, red is Pot-O-Berries and the pink (my favorite from the bunch) is Beauty and the Beach which was a duo with micro beads. They all have a very good coverage and the colors are great. The smell is a bit strong for me because I am pets but I really do love the polish other than that.
It is 4 free as the back of the bottle says and has vitamin e which is lovely.
It seems to be long lasting also, I had it on my nails for 5 days before a chip with a Rimmel top coat... that is a very long time for me since I work with my hands.
Over all, I dig it.

You can find more information on their site here-
And! you can shop here for the polish here-
And again their facebook is here-
Stop by their page and tell em I sent ya ;)

If so, how do you like it?

 Disclaimer- The polish was given to me to try. I was not paid nor do I get any kind of commission from them for this post.

Nails of the day- Inspired by Water!

I bought all these goodies during Julep's online warehouse sale last month so I have a ton of new colors to play with!
I really wanted to try the "Rock Candy Nail Glaze" that was exclusive to Sephora for a few months and was very excited that I was able to get it in the warehouse sale for about 80% off!
For these nails I used Angelica that I am holding in pictures :)
Inspired by the lovely bottom left picture of fish shadow sculpture.
I was thinking of doing a tutorial using Coral from the set. Feel free to leave a comment below if you would like to see a tutorial for this design, with or without fish.

4th of July Nails!

Getting ready for the 4th!

 The goodies you will need.
Nail art tape.
Base (by Julep)
 Red (Jackie by Julep) 
White (French White Creme by Wet n' Wild)
 Blue (Ally By Julep) 
Glitter (America by Julep) 
Red Nail Art (Be my Valentine by SinfulColors)
Top coat (Freedom)
Star stickers (bought at Target)
Red, clear or white and blue crystals (store in LA)
Dotting tool (Etsy)
 When getting the star stickers make sure they fit you nail beds so you dont have to cut too much off.
 After you apply your base apply white to you index and middle fingers, red to your thumb and blue to you ring finger.
Apple blue to 1/4 of your nail. You want the base of you nail to stay white for you stripes of the flag.
You can use tape to help keep the lines clean and to make this look neater.. or if you just need the help :)
 Using your nail art red polish starting under the blue make your first red stripe.
Continue making stripes and made a few to your middle finger also.
 When you are done with your stripes apply a few dots with your dotting tool to the blue on your index fingers for the stars of the flag. I like to put my polish I will be dipping in on a piece of tape for easy clean up.
 Done, done and done! What a lovely flag you have!
 Get your crystals ready and apply a small amount of clear polish on your tape.
 Apply a small dot where each crystal is going to on nail with the clear polish and then apple the crystals.
 The stars a pretty easy, just pick up and place.
 I was going to only apply one but since my nails are pretty long right now I decided I wanted two!
 If you have some hangover like I have here, don't worry just cut the extra off.
 All better!
 Apply your glitter starting at the base of your thumb. Try to keep the bigger chucks near your base so it looks like it is fading.
 Apply your top coat and you are done!

If you like this look check out my other patriotic nails from earlier this month! 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy 4th or Canada Day if you are near but not here!

Something Blue VoxBox has come!

I  joined Influenster a few weeks ago, I posted about it and this box before it came here.
Yesterday my first Voxbox came! It was much smaller then I though the box would be, I guess I had the Julep box in mind :p
Anyway, here are the goodies that came... and the ninja that have taken over my box!
The first thing I took out of the box was this Luster Now! whiting toothpaste. It also came with a booklet full of coupons :) I am going to start it tonight and will update with a review 6.14.13!
My Trio Rings sent a pamphlet. The rings look lovely but truth be told my ring is better and I don't think I would buy from them. This was a bridal box and I am engaged... with a ring already. I know some ladies get engaged without a ring or the ring comes later but there is no ring needed in my house and as I said in my last post, my wedding band and my fiance's ring are already taken care of also. As a goldsmith my review these rings as frozen spit as me and my old boss would call em. As I tell everyone, just go to a ma and pa store and get it done well and custom. Even on a budget a smaller store will be more than happy to help you and the chance of hand picking your own goodies goes up. If you have a small budge or just don't care this site will work for you but I would suggest to check out a few local small shops (not mall stores like Kay's it is the same as My Trio Rings) and do a little window shopping and ask a few questions, you may be surprised at what you can find :) Now, if I were to pick from their shop these two would be on my list. They are very cute and the prices are pretty good, quick and cheap jewelry just isn't for me. I don't mind a good deal but don't want cheap. Sadly, I am too picky so my fiance is too scared to get me jewelry. Anyway, they have good prices but scream cheap materials to me. I have nothing in front of me so this review is just off of their site and the pamphlet sent.
5/8 Carat Diamond Ladies' Engagement Ring 14K Yellow Gold1/8 Carat Diamond Women's Wedding Band 14K Yellow Gold
Kiss eyelashes sent two packs, one full and one very full! As I posted before I thought they would be sending nail stickers due to the brand name posted on the site. I was excited for stickers but am happy with the lashes and have used them before. These are cute, look good on and easy to use. They also came with a coupon code. I think this is my favorite sample from the box. It came with more then one to pick from, discount, and instructions. Everything I need to pick what one I like and to get more. I will post a picture soon of them on.
I have been working out and my aches and pains have gone up! Next time I over do it... I will give this guy a shot and post how it went.
Q-tips! They sent the precision tip ones and I am so thankful! I have a ton of the regular tip ones and always forget to grab these although they have been on my metal list for ever! These are great for cleaning up my nails and make up under my eyes. These bad boys will be going in my bride's box for sure.
Dr. Scholls for Her Ball of Foot slips. I have been using Dr. Scholls for years, working years in retail they have saved me from a ton of pain. I also have tiny feet for being 5'7" (5.5-6) and they always are a great fit for my shoes. Love em and would by them again, these will be added to my brides box for my special day also.

So that was the Something Blue box. If you got it want did you like best? Anything you are going to be more of?
This box was sent free to me for review.
