April favorites

Just some products that I was loving this month and wanted to share....
•Lush silky underwear is a dusting powder it's jasmine scented with cocoa butter to soften it smells amazing and makes my skin so soft I find myself reaching or this when I'm running late and don't have time to put lotion I really like it definitely plan on repurchasing it when I run out.

• Lush Ambrosia shave cream
This smells so good and I have sensitive legs that always get nicks with every shave but I didn't with this shave cream, and i also rubbed some in after getting out the bath and my legs felt so smooth after, will also be repurchasing this product.

• Olay total effects 7 in one
This is the best lotion I have used in a long time, I don't think I can remember anything better, it's smells so great, I really love the scent I can't describe what it smells like maybe a mix of fruit and floral I know scents are very personal but this is my absolute favorite smelling lotion ever, I don't plan on using anything else till they don't make this anymore, I love the smell that much! and if that wasn't enough my skin feels so soft even hours later this is the only lotion that I've actually noticed smoother softer skin, love love love this lotion!

• eos hand lotion original scent
This smells so pretty and it does make my hands soft not drastically but good enough, and the packaging is just so different and super cute, I love this I carry it in my purse at all times.

• eos medicated tangerine lip balm
This balm smells medicated but not overwhelming or sickening it has a well balance of tangerine and the medicated smell, I think the two scents go well with each other and I like to use this at night before bed and its soothing and it helps me to not wake up with dry lips, and the packaging is so cute everyone always asks me what it is when I use it.

• Lush lemony flutter
I know this is nothing new and everyone already knows about it but I use this for every manicure I give myself and it smells so good and makes my hands and cuticles so soft I noticed if I use this regularly I don't get any hangnails.

My first attempt at scotch tape art

I adore Erika from chloe's nails scotch tape art it makes me wanna give up trying nail art because she is just amazingly talented so here is my measly attempt it's not good but u gotta start somewhere right?

Golden Rose 111 copper

This color looks so much prettier in RL than in pics. Application was great good smooth formula no streaks full opacity with 2 coats and it's so shiny with no top coat, this however is 3 coats because some chipped from yesterday but u can't even tell, this is another win for me from golden rose.

Priority shipping! This was such a deal to me I'm so happy and excited I had try two out on my current mani but it's late so I can't take a pic in day light I will tomorrow though!

Pink wed • WnW how I met your magenta

Yay pink wed I love it I got this color at target for $ 1.99 I think the name is cute, I think wet&wild are having all they're new polishes somewhat named after tv shows like the one I have thats named grays anatomy. This is 4 layers it was opaque with 3 but I put 4 because of a mess up on my part I really like this pink it's got a subtle gold shimmer that I could not get the camera to pick up so sorry for so many pics I couldn't decide which one I liked.

Pure ice

 I like pure ice polishes the price and colors are nice I picked up
• wet t-shirt
• in the mood
• oh baby!
• heart breaker
I didn't have time to do better& full swatches and I'm not happy with any of the pictures but Ive been delaying this post too long and I'm over it! So on to it also one of my polishes had no brush and one bottle was cracked but I can't complain for 1.99$. This is 3 layers of each color.

Here's the missing brush and broken bottle I just put super glue in the crack.

Has that ever happen to anyone else with pure ice? it was actually pretty funny I've never purchased a polish that was missing it's brush.

UNICORN PEE!!! aka clarins 230 (pic heavy)

There's no doubt about it you know your an addict when u purchase clarins 230 from evilbay, I would have never known about it if it wasn't for the nail blogging community which is why I adore my fellow addicts and am so happy I've found them! When I saw someone mention it on another blog and then I saw it I just had to have it, I failed horribly in trying to catch the unbelievable awesomeness that is clarins 230 and I gave up trying so sorry for so many pictures I'm in love!

Just something diff than the same old pose

Two extra gifts I got with purchase clarins 220&103.

Sally Hansen lacquer shine 08 glossy

This is my favorite black it has a beautiful red/purple/gold undertone that pics don't pick up so pretty and application is great you could get away with one coat easily its almost fully opaque with one but i put too just cause,I think it's pretty old I've had it for a while. Sorry for the messy application I painted them at work...shhh..

Then for fun and because I'm a layering crazy women I added jesse's girl glee I didn't really like it too much but wanted to try it.

WnW grays anatomy

Grays anatomy is a pretty duo chrome I like the color just not on my skin tone it's beautiful just not on me it's part of wnw new fast dry collection the formula is pretty thin it took 3 coats to get full opacity the brush is kinda jagged like not a clean cut kinda choppy if that makes sense but overall love it for only 2$.
And I just had to add glitter I used china glaze fairy dust a sheer holo
