Nail Polish

Hey beauty lovers! So I thought it would be fun to show you all the nail color trends I’ve been loving for the month June. These colors have been getting me through June gloom.. But now that it’s summer I can’t wait to wear these colors and others for the next couple of months!

Enjoy 🙂 and remember that if you want to keep up with me to follow me on Twitter, Instagram and/or Facebook.

Hey loves!

I am so sorry I haven’t posted in a while but things have been crazy busy! If you follow me on twitter or instagram (tavi1088) then you have seen post of my nails for this past couple of weeks. So please follow if you want to be kept up to date!

 

So this week I decided to embrace the colors for spring and even though it has been rainy and cold. i thought pastels would just put me in a good mood.

 

What I am wearing:

-Base Coat: Sally Hasen Diamond Strength Nail Hardener

– Essie spring collection: Play date

– Top Coat: Seche Vite

Play Date by Essie

So I decide to change my base coat from the Orly that I normally use because i was running low and it seemed that my nails were still easily breaking after a while with it. So hopefully the Sally Hasen Diamond Strength nail hardener will do a better job.

 

I really love this color and it just reminds me of warm days and ice cream lol.

 

Hope you all are having a great week and until next time!

Hey loves!

So I know I have been lacking in nails of the week post but lately I just haven’t been loving the colors I’ve been wearing. if you follow me on Twitter you were still able to see what I’ve been wearing for the past couple of weeks.

Anyway, this is about what I’ve been wearing this week 🙂 I purchased some of the polishes from the new Spring Essie Collection. Which to be honest, I am not that in love with because two of the colors I think I have in other polishes so I didn’t purchase those. Overall, I do love the collection and the pastel collection mixed with the hot neon colors.

So what I am wearing this past week:

My usual top and bottom coat (Seche Vite and Orly Nail Defense). The color is ole caliente by Essie.

As you can tell from the pictures that the color is a kind of a neon red. It is a very true red color and it going to look great during spring and summer months. The color did apply very thick than usual Essie colors. I did this in two coats. The polish retails for $8 at CVS, which is where I purchased the collection.  I really do enjoy this color.

Hope  you all are having a great Sunday 🙂 Until next time.

Hi beauties!

So I am back with another edition of nails of the week! I really feel like what color you choose to put on your nails defines your mood for the week. So this week, even though it is cold and rainy here in L.A. I am in a bright tangy orange color ready for spring and summer mood! So I went for something not too loud but it definitely puts me in a good mood since this weather is just terrible!

I actually didn’t have this color before yesterday. I went to Target and decided to go by the beauty aisle because I can’t pass it up lol. So while I was browsing I looked at the L’Oreal Color Riche nail polish that has just come out and it caught my eye immediately! I swear I will probably end up buying all of them because I am just so in love with this collection. I also like the price range that L’Oreal has for their polish. It was $4.99 at Target and I’ve seen that price at CVS and Rite Aid so it is nice that there is no huge variations between store and the price.

What I am wearing:

– L’Oreal Color Riche nail polish in 400 Tangerine Crush

– Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

– Orly Nail Defense as the base coat

 

Tangerine Crush

Is that not just the most beautiful orangey/peach you have seen! It is coming off more red than it is in the pictures but trust me it is so pretty. This is two coats and one coat of top coat. Well I hope this has brighten up everyone’s week and hope you guys stay warm!

See you next week for the next nails of the week 🙂

 

P.S. I thought I would just show this gorgeous lime green purse that I also found at Target! I don’t usually post on here the fashion items that I purchase, but if you want to see more of them let me know!

I can’t wait to wear it for spring and summer!

Hi loves!

So its a new week which means new manicure! So this weekend, I went on a shopping spree at Walgreens, CVS and Sally’s Beauty (which I did a blog post on, check it out here). So after my spree I painted my nails with the new colors that I purchased.

I’m wearing:

– L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish in 280 Pink me up!

– Sally Hansen Gem Crush nail polish in 03 Big Money

– Base coat: Orly Nail Defense

– Top coat: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Pink me up! & Big Money

I really like L’Oreal Colour Riche nail polishes. It went on very smooth and since it is a cream finish it gives off a high shine. This might be my favorite color for spring and summer 🙂 I was really surprised at how much I like Sally Hansen’s Gem crush. The glitter is fine but it goes on so smooth. I am wearing just one coat on my  nails. I like that I didn’t have to build it up with a lot of coats to get that much glitter on my nails. I also like how the big pieces of glitter are purple so when it reflects it has a purple shimmer and it goes great with the hot pink.  I will be purchasing more of them soon!

Hope you enjoyed this weeks selection and check back next week for another edition of Nails of the Week.

Hi loves!

So I have just returned from running some errands and I thought it would be fun to show you guys what I have picked up. This is not a review of the products but I will give some thoughts on a few that I started playing with already! Most of theses products will be featured in future blog post/reviews.

First store that I went to was Walgreens, I was a bit disappointed in the selection the one near my house had but I did get a few good things. Most of the things here were the nail polishes since they were having a buy one get one 50% off that ends today!

I purchased:

– Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Color Care in 08 Sorbet and 04 Stain

– Sally Hansen Gem Crush in 03 Big Money

– L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche in 410 l’orange, 510 paparazzi pleaser, and 280 pink me up!

– L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm in 318 Heavenly Berry, 418 Caring Coral, and 819 Carmel Comfort ( I have swatch these on my hand and they are very sheer. I think the best color was Carmel Comfort. I will be reviewing these once I apply them to my lips).

– Rimmel Lasting Finish lipstick by Kat Moss collection in 12 (which is the orange/red shade) and 08 (pink nude)

– Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque (I love this stuff!!! )

Next I was off to Sally Beauty Supply because I was out of nail polish remover and I like their pure acetone to remove my nail polish:

I purchased:

– Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

– Beauty Secrets Pure Acetone

And since I purchased Seche Vite I got a free China Glaze nail polish. So I picked 544 Liquid Leather and then since I renewed my Sally Beauty’s card I received one free item from Silk Elements so I picked the Soft Holding Spritz Styling Spray.

Then I decide to go to CVS because I didn’t find everything that I wanted at Walgreens.

I purchased:

– Maybelline  24 hr Color Tattoo cream eyeshadows in 10 Fierce & Tangy and 50 Edgy Emerald ( I will be doing a review on these next!)

– Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascara

So let me know if there is anything from this shopping spree that you want to see a specific detail review about. I will be doing Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadows and most of the nail polishes will be featured in a nails of the week post.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend 🙂

HI!

So I change my nail polish every week to have a fresh manicure and because I can never wear one color for a long period of time. My mood is always changing and since I can’t express it with a different haircut or style everyday, I put the energy into my nails! So I thought it would be cool if I started doing post every week of what nail color I’m wearing for the week.

This week I am wearing:

Essie 893 School of Hard Rocks as the base (from the Cocktail Bling collection)

Milani Jewel FX 530 -Gems on top

Sally Hansen Mega Shine Extended Wear Top Coat

School of Hard Rocks & Gems

I used about two and half coats of Gems to get a nice coat of glitter on my nails. School of Hard Rocks took only two even coats. I bought Milani Gems at Target and Essie School of Hard Rocks at Rite Aid.
