Saturday Swatches: Too Faced Melted Metal - Metallic Jelly SWATCH and Review

 Those of you who know me (or have seen my makeup collection) know I adore Too Faced. My top favourite palettes are from them and I love their foundation. So it makes me a bit sad to write this review, because I didn't really like this product.

Okay, to be clear, I don't think this is a bad product. I just don't think it delivers what it claims to. I really love the formula of Too Faced's Melted lipsticks, but my issue with this metallic one is... well... it's not metallic?
As you can see in my (massive) swatch (I was trying to see if I could squeeze out some hidden melted metal magic, I suppose?), this is a very pretty grape purple with the very slightest (almost invisible) metallic sheen that is completely lost on the lips. It also does not go on opaque at all, so your lips basically look a streaky purple once you apply it.

If you work with it a bit, you can pull off a shiny vampy lip, but it's just too much effort to me for it to be worth it! Sorry Too Faced! 😭 I absolutely recommend the regular Melted lipsticks though! Those are amazing!

June Favourites!

 Another month has come to an end, which means it's time for my monthly favourites! I have  smaller bunch of products this month, but I love them all so much. Some of them are new to me and others are rediscovered old favourites.
 First, I've really been loving my Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in the shade 'Donut'. It's the most perfect bright pink colour that looks so pretty in the summertime. I've really been reaching for this one a lot, especially since I've been keeping my eye looks a bit more neutral.

I've also gotten a lot of use out of my Annabelle BB Compact Makeup, as I'm sure you can tell by the generous amount of pan I've hit on it. I use this powder to set my makeup. It adds an extra little bit of coverage, and darkens my foundation a little bit, which is good since the foundation I'm using right now is my winter shade, so a little too light.
 Of course, I've been roped in by the hype surrounding the L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise mascara. I really do believe it deserves the hype it gets. It's for sure a dupe for my beloved Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara, and at a fraction of the price, I'm on board 100%.
 I've really been enjoying the Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 hour foundation this month. It offers great medium buildable coverage, is super long lasting, and leaves a very flawless finish on the skin. I'm not too sure what "Comfort Serum" is, but considering my skin has been dry to the point of discomfort this month, I will agree that this foundation has been comfortable to wear.

Finally, I started using my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette on a near daily basis again, and I've fallen in love with it all over.

I still firmly believe that this is a must have in any persons makeup collection, whether you're a beginner or a makeup junkie.

It's the perfect collection of wearable neutrals that never get boring.

That's all for my monthly favourites for June! This month just flew by, it's so crazy. Can't wait to see what July has in store... (Hopefully a bit more sun and heat... the weather in Canada hasn't been too "summery" yet, unfortunately!)

Have a wonderful July everybody!

My Spring Makeup Essentials: Pink

As soon as spring rolls around, my makeup looks tend to shift to the more pink side of things. I've really been loving the monochrome makeup trend these days because rosy eyeshadow and pink lips are right up my alley.

If you're like me and you love these kinds of looks, here are my favourite makeup products that you need in your life, like, yesterday.

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
I whip out this palette for almost every eyeshadow look I ever do. It is just a must have.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
I waited on picking up this palette for a long time but I finally bit the bullet and went for it. Obviously I love it. If you're like me and you love pink-toned makeup looks, don't hesitate on picking up this palette.

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette 
If you're looking for a more affordable palette that still packs a punch, I highly recommend the Maybelline Blushed Nudes palette. The metallic shades in this are so freaking gorgeous, it blows my mind.

Too Faced Melted Lipstick in 'Melted Chihuahua' 
This is more of a rosy nude on my lips, and it's just one of those lip colours that complements any eye look, so it's definitely a must have in my collection.

Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in 'Baci' and 'Patina' 
I've recently fallen in love with this liquid lipstick formula (why did I wait so long to try these!?). The colour selection is fantastic as well. Definitely pick one (or many!) of these up.

Physicians Formula Happy Booster Blush 
This is my holy grail pink blush right now. If you want a blush that makes your cheeks look flushed and healthy, with a touch of glow, this is the one.

Nyx Prismatic Eyeshadow in 'Girl Talk' 
I've actually be loving this lately for highlighting. It's a pretty pink toned champagne colour that really complements any pink makeup look you do. It also looks really nice if you're very fair skinned and have a hard time finding a highlight that isn't too dark.

Spring 2017 Project Pan!

Hey everyone! So I really enjoyed my Winter project pan and since I have SO many products in my collection that either need more love or need to be used up ASAP, I decided I'll be doing a project pan with a different selection of products every month.

Here's what I chose for Spring 2017!

Of course, I'm bringing back the Nyx Prismatic Eye shadow in 'Girl Talk', since that was the one product in my last project pan that was pretty neglected. Hopefully I can get some good use out of this one this time around!


The big one for this project pan is my Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. This was my favourite palette EVER, but since I've purchased so many palettes in the past few months, I feel like this ones been pretty neglected, so my goal is to get some good use out of this and to (hopefully) on at least 3-4 shades.
This will probably be the easiest product in my project pan, since I've already hit major pan on this one. This is the Maybelline Fit Me powder, which I'd really like to completely use up since it's not my favourite face powder ever.
The last two items are my Nyx HD concealer and my Annabelle Big Show Mascara. I like both of these a lot, but don't use them as much as I should. I tend to reach for my Maybelline Fit Me concealer more than this Nyx one, so I'm going to work on using this one up for the next few months.
The Annabelle Big Show mascara is a really nice mascara that I actually have multiple back ups of, but I'd really like to finish it up (for the sake of decluttering a bit!).

What are you working on finishing up? Let me know!

DECEMBER + JANUARY EMPTIES (and reviews!)

It's time for another empties roundup! I haven't used up too many products in the past little while, so I may start doing these posts on a quarterly basis, however I do have a TON of samples I need to test out, so let me know if you'd like to see me do a big review of samples I try!

Lets get into it!

Rimmel 'Stay Matte' Pressed Powder: It took me ages to get through this powder, but I can honestly say its one of the best I've ever used. It's super afforable and keeps your makeup matte and in place all day.

Too Faced 'Better Than Sex' Mascara: It seems I always have one of these in my empties posts, likely because it's my holy grail mascara. I've done a full review on this mascara in the past, you can read that here, but in brief, it lengthens, volumizes, and makes my lashes look unlike anything any other mascara can do.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: I have a full review of this mascara on my blog as well, which you can read here, but once again, this mascara is one of the better ones at the drugstore. If you want long, voluminous lashes, this will definitely do the trick.

Arbonne RE9 Advanced Line (samples): I was sent samples of the full Arbonne RE9 Advanced Line to review (which you can read here), and I was pretty pleased overall! They each did something specific for my skin and I did notice a difference after using them.

Degree Motionsense Deodorant in 'Berry Cool': I normally don't mention deodorants in my empties, but I wanted to mention this one because I'm so in love with the scent. It's a super refreshing berry scent that I cannot get enough of!

Aveeno Eczema Care Hand Cream: If you've read my blog for a while, you know that I go through about a tube of this a month. It's my absolute favourite hand cream to soothe eczema.

Garnier Moisture Rescue Gel Cream: I finished this up early on last month. It's a great, lightweight moisturizer that I adore in the warmer months. I probably wont repurchase this until the Spring, but it's still amazing nonetheless.

Hope you're all having a wonderful day!

Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette Review

Too Faced 'Sweet Peach' Palette
I initially wasn't going to review this palette since it's been out for a while now and everyone and their grandma has it and has reviewed it, but after seeing how much love I've gotten on my pictures of it on Instagram, I figured it would be worth a mention.

I lusted after this palette from it's initial release last year, but I wasn't able to snag it, something I regretted for a loooong time. So you can imagine how excited I was when Too Faced brought it back. I was giddy like a little kid on Christmas morning.

I picked it up on Boxing Day and I've been using it in every single eye look I've done since then, no exaggeration.

I know the hype around this palette has been immense, but I think it's with good reason. Besides the fact that it's super pretty and smells like peach candy, the shadows are very pigmented, smooth and blend fantastically.

What I really love about this palette is that (when I look at it, at least), there are so many possible looks you can come up with using it. It has a wonderful mix of peaches, pinks, purples and orangy browns.

My absolute favourite shades so far are Luscious and Summer Yum. (A great go-to every day look is Summer Yum in the crease, Lusicous all over the lid, Nectar in the inner corners and White Peach as a brow bone highlight).

I don't have swatches of the palette as I think it's been done and done again, but let me know in the comments if you'd like me to do swatches and I'd be more than happy to.
Also let me know if you'd like to see any looks/tutorials using the palette!

October Favourites!

It's November!
Hi everyone! I apologize for my little break from the blogging world. I needed to put my focus 100% on my midterms, but now that those have been conquered, I'm back and excited to share what I have been loving all throughout the month of October!

October is my favourite month, mostly because it's my birthday month, but it has my absolute favourite weather as well. I am SO happy to be able to be wearing my huge cozy sweaters again.
Nyx Lip Lingerie in 'Ruffle Trim'
The amount of times I've been complimented on this lip colour blows my mind. It's a really pretty warm brown nude, which used to be somewhat out of my comfort zone, but I've been loving it lately.

Maybelline Fit me! Matte and Poreless face powder
Once my Rimmel Stay Matte powder ran out, I really needed a good, new mattifying powder, so I decided to give this one a shot. I'm not too sure if I like it more than the Rimmel one, but it makes my skin look so smooth and matte, without the powdery, cakey effect,

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
I've been wearing a lot more colourful and shimmery eyeshadows rhis past month, and I needed something I could depend on to keep everything in check. This is a great product to prevent creasing and make sure everything stays where you want it to while lasting all day. I'm using a deluxe sample size and it's nowhere even close to empty, and I've been using it every single day for over a month now!
Essence Pure Nude Highlighter in 'Be My Highlight'
I really wish I found this product sooner. This is the best everyday highlighter I have ever used! It looks so natural and glowy, and doesn't accentuate any texture. Plus, depending on how much you apply, you can go from a subtle daytime look to a disco ball kind of glow with ease. All that, AND it's so affordable! There's no excuse not to pick this up!

Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara
This has been my go to mascara all month when I wanted a more dramatic effect with my lashes. It volumizes like no mascara I have ever used ever. It really does make your lashes stand out. I was so skeptical about if this product would be all that great considering how inexpensive it was, but I was very pleasantly surprised.

L'Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in 'Amber Rush' 
I heard the hype over this eyeshadow for ages but never really was convinced enough to go pick it up until lately but oh my god, is this ever pretty. It shimmers like no eyeshadow I have ever used before, it's almost breathtaking when it hits the light. I'm so tempted to go buy more shades of it now, it's that gorgeous.

These were the products that I particularly loved in October. I'm so sad that it went by as fast as it did! I had a really great month, and a lovely 21st birthday.

Here's to a great November!

August Favourites!

I know I say this every month, but how fast did August go by? It was a really great month for me but I'm already super excited for fall now. I didn't try out too many new products during the month of August but I really did fall in love with a small handful.

I think this was the month where I went out of my comfort zone a lot more in terms of eyeshadow and lip colours. I also went on a road trip that resulted in a fair bit of shopping. Anyway, looking through the products I used the most this month, these are the ones that stood out to me the most:

Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette
I actually only purchased this palette this month and I'm so glad I decided to go for it. It is a very neutral palette, which is right up my alley of course. I already knew that I loved the formulation of Too Faced eye shadows so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. I only wish I picked this up sooner.

Nyx Lip Lingerie in 'Exotic' 
I wanted to pick up some of Nyx's Lip Lingerie for so long now, and I finally got the chance to do so this month. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on these, but I found the formulation to be really nice. It applies very smoothly and evenly, and lasts pretty well. The only thing I did find is that it didn't fade very nicely, but if you touch up a few times a day, you won't have any issues.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 'Coral Berry' 
It's no secret that I am in love with Revlon's Super Lustrous lipsticks. They are my favourite lipsticks at the drugstore. This colour is such a wearable coral that goes with so many different makeup looks. Hydrating, pigmented and easy to apply.
Lancome Effacernes Waterproof Under Eye Concealer 
I wouldn't be surprised if I've mentioned this in past monthly favourites, but I still cannot get over how great this concealer is. Especially now that I'm back in school, and my under eyes are looking darker and more fatigued, this concealer has got my back. I pair it with a peachy colour corrector and my under eye darkness is virtually undetectable.

Covergirl Professional Loose Powder
I have memories of my mom using this powder when I was a little girl, and when I needed a new loose powder to set my under eye concealer, I picked this one up. It's a really good, dependable loose powder. I find that it sets my under eye area amazingly and leaves it smooth and creaseless all day, without looking too cakey or powdery.
Annabelle Smudge Liner in 'Atomic Surf '
Whenever I went for a more dramatic eye look, I loved applying turquoise liner on my bottom lash line. This liner in particular is so creamy and smooth, while also being insanely long wearing and pigmented. Annabelle never ceases to impress me with their eyeliners.

What did you love this month? Let me know! xo

PRODUCT EMPTIES!! : Review & Would I Repurchase?

Hi everyone! I don't normally do empties posts, mostly because I'm really bad at thinking to keep them before I just toss them in the trash, but I somehow managed to gather a few things this month and I figured I'd talk about them and whether I'd repurchase them or not.

L'Oreal Color Radiance Protecting Mask
I don't really have coloured hair. I've had highlights done a few months ago, but besides that, nothing new enough where colour protection is a must for me, so unfortunately I can't really comment on whether or not it prolongs colour. It does however make my hair smell incredible (I'd honestly buy it for the scent alone) and it really leaves my hair feeling really soft and nourished.

Aveeno Eczema Care Hand Cream
This is probably the 6th or 7th tube of this I've gone through. It's just that good. I really recommend this to anyone with eczema and is looking for a good cream minus the steroids. It would also be great for anyone with sensitive skin looking for a hand cream that is super hydrating and fragrance free. I honestly cannot live without this.

Nivea Sensitive Night Care Face Cream
This was a pretty decent night cream for me back in the winter when my skin was crazy dry. I finished it off this month, but it was a bit to heavy for my skin right now. I might repurchase it in the winter when my skin is drier, but for not there are many other ones I have that I prefer.

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
This is very likely my favourite drugstore mascara. It's super lengthening and volumizing. I'm usually not a fan of rubber wands, but this one was great. I will definitely be repurchasing this one.

Olay Fresh Effects Acne Hater Deep Scrub
This is the second one of these I've used up and I'm already planning to repurchase ASAP. My skin has never been ovely acne prone, but since using this scrub my skin is blemish free about 98% of the time. It is just the right amount of exfoliation and leaves your skin feeling cool, soft and not overly dry.

Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
I'll keep this short because I could go on about this mascara for years and years. It is my holy grail high end mascara. Anything you want in a mascara, this does it. Amazing.

TREsemme Botanique Nourish and Replenish hair mask
This was an okay hair mask. It didn't give me the intense hydration I expected from it. To me, it was light enough to use as a regular conditioner. (Do keep in mind that I have extremely thick, dry hair). It had a nice scent but I probably wouldn't repurchase this. I'm currently using the shampoo from this range though, and it is AWESOME.


That's all for my empties this time! Have you tried any of these products? Let me know what you thought in the comments!

MAY FAVOURITES!


Wow, can you believe its June already? This  month flew by so quickly! Luckily, I did also discover a ton of amazing new products that I cannot wait to share with you all!


Nyx HD Concealer in "Fair"
The fact that this is a drugstore concealer blows my mind. It is so creamy and offers amazing coverage. Hands down the best concealer I've ever used on my under eye circles!


Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous foundation (in 110 creamy natural)
I'm really liking this foundation this month. It offers a light to medium coverage which is what I like to have in the summer. It wears really well, even on really hot or humid days, which is a must!




Too Faced Shadow Insurance
I know this stuff has been around for ages, but WOW is it ever good. It can not only hold glittery eyeshadows for hours without any creasing, but it actually makes them look SO much better. It even increases the amount of pigmentation you get from your shadow! If you haven't tried this yet, you must.


L'Oreal Visible Lift CC eye concealer
This stuff is amazing for the summer and for the morning. The concealer itself is great; its very creamy and offers a light to medium level of coverage. The thing that won me over is the fact that it applies with a roller ball! It's really cooling on the eye area which helps if you have puffy eyes in the morning, or just want something soothing!



Nyx Prismatic Shadow in "Girl Talk"
I adore this eyeshadow. Its so sparkly and pretty, I just cannot get enough of it. It's also a very versatile shade so it can be used in a lot of different eye looks. I've also used it as a highlight once and it looks great there too!


Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm
I'm a person who often has trouble finding a good nude lipstick that doesn't make me look washed out, since I'm quite pale. This is the one for sure. It looks so natural and pretty, I can't get enough of it.








Food Favourite: Smartfood Cheddar Jalapeno popcorn
I'm so addicted to this popcorn, it's becoming a problem. But it's soooooooo gooooooood........



TV Show: Grey's Anatomy
Yes, I know I'm late to get on board with this. But I watched 6 seasons in a month and a half, so I think that counts as a serious addiction.

What did you love in May? Let me know in the comments below!

Too Faced 'Better Than Sex" Mascara Review!

I can sum up this mascara in 2 words: Holy Grail. Of course, you're all here for a full review of it, so I'll give you more than just two words.

I first tried this mascara a little over a year ago when I got a mini sized one with the Too Faced "Everything Nice' limited edition holiday palette and I fell in love. It is the best mascara if you want dramatic, fuller and longer lashes.

I've tried many mascaras and they all promise to both add length and volume, but usually only manage one. This mascara actually does both. I notice my lashes are noticeably thicker and longer. My makeup looks are so so much more dramatic and pretty when I use this mascara, I swear by it.

It is not a waterproof formula (I'm not sure if it comes in a waterproof formulation at all) but that was not a problem. I never had any issues with smudging or even black raccoon eyes in the rare occasion I shed a tear or sweat. (of course, you will get some nice black raccoon eyes if you shower with it on, duh). It also does not flake on me at all, it goes on and stays on perfectly.

Another great thing I've noticed about it is that it doesn't clump too much if you add additional coats. To be honest, I find that if you really take your time and work your first coat in, you don't even need a second or third, but in the occasion that I wanted extra drama, it went on very well.

It is $30 CAD which is a bit steep for a mascara but this stuff is so great, I would gladly spend a bit extra for it. It also does have your money's worth of product in the tube, so if you use it every day, you will definitely have it for a while.

Finally, while this isn't the most important of things (but it definitely helps!), the packaging is sooooo cute. Too Faced is known for their pretty packaging and this one feels so luxurious to me. It is sleek and pink and metal which gives it a nice, satisfying weight to it.

So yeah, this was definitely a huge contender in my 2015 favourites and I intend to continue loving it in 2016!

Too Faced 'Born This Way' Foundation Review

I have always had problems finding the perfect foundation. My skin typically tends to be dry and most foundations I've tried usually accentuate that and cling to dry spots. I read pretty mixed reviews about Too Faced's 'Born This Way' foundation but I figured I'd give it a try since I'm a pretty big fan of their products in general.

This foundation changed the game for me. It provides medium but buildable coverage, and just glides on your skin like a dream. It has the most lovely feeling on the skin, I almost can't describe it. The perfect balance between matte and dewy making it look SO natural that you honestly can't tell you have foundation on. I wear the shade Nude and was matched at Sephora so it was a perfect match. (although I'll have to see about getting matched again since that was back in August and I'm sure I've lost most of my tan by now).

Ever since I tried this foundation in the summer, I've worn nothing but it. It's seriously that great. I would recommend this especially for anyone with dry skin because it honestly goes right over it and doesn't make it obvious. I also tend to have sensitive skin and acne prone skin and I had no reaction at all with this foundation. Way to go, Too Faced. This stuff is amazing.

They also recently expanded their range of shades to 18, so it's very likely you'd find your shade. The packaging is very nice and classic looking and has a pump which was an extra selling point for me; nothing worse than having to coax stubborn foundation out from the bottom of the bottle.

The only con for me is that it is a bit pricy ($57 CAD) but it does last fairly long since just a little of the product goes a long way, which does make it worth the price.

If you've tried it, let me know what you thought in the comments below!

My 2015 Makeup and Beauty Favourites!

Hey everyone! So as 2015 comes to a close, I've gathered up all my favourite makeup products from this year into one big post! So here are the products that I loved ALL year and were my absolute favourites. I'll also be writing full reviews for each one of these products throughout the month of January for those of you who would like to know more!



Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

By far the best foundation I've used probably ever. I love this stuff. I have dry skin so finding a good foundation is usually pretty hard for me since it always tends to settle in a very obvious way on my skin which is not the effect I'm going for... This foundation looks so natural, and also offers great coverage. Awesome.




Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
This mascara might just be my holy grail mascara. Does everything a good mascara should do; adds volume, length and curl. I probably used it almost every day this year (except for the past couple weeks because I've run out!).

Maybelline The Blushed Nudes palette
I've mentioned this palette before in a monthly favourites. And I still use it pretty much on an almost daily basis. The selection of colours complements my skin and look so natural and pretty. Lots of golds, rosy golds and gorgeous nude shades.




Lush Therapy Massage Bar
I adore this massage bar. It may just have taken the spot of my previous favourite (and sadly discontinued) Heavanilli. The scent is so nice but not too overpowering and it does what a massage bar should do. (No joke, it was in one of my dreams the other night... I think that means something about how much I love it). Not 100% sure if this counts as a "makeup and beauty favourite" but it makes my skin feel beautiful, so that should count for something!

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara
This is a new one that I've started using recently and it's already made its way into my 2015 favourites, so I think that says something about this product. There was a lot of hype surrounding this mascara and I normally don't buy into the hype, but desperate and in need of a mascara to temporarily replace my Too Faced one, I picked one up. This mascara is really lovely. It makes your lashes look super long and pretty but in the most natural way. I loveeee it.


Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen
I had been wanting this particular product for SO LONG and it was always sold out when I went to buy it. I searched for MONTHS, no joke here. So when I finally got it, I was so so excited and my expectations were pretty much sky high. And it met every expectation. I finally found my perfect wine/burgundy lip colour and the formulation is amaaaaazing. So velvetty smooth and matte.

And thats it for my 2015 makeup faves! I hope you enjoyed reading this! What do you think of these products? And what are your 2015 favourites? Let me know!

August Favourites



Another month has ended, and with it brings tons of more amazing products that I've loved all month long! Here's what I loved the most:

Too Faced Born This Way foundation
I'll probably write a full, in-depth review of this product but OMG. This foundation has taken the #1 spot in my list of favourite foundations. Its honestly so incredible and I've been using it every day. I'd recommend it to anyone. I can't get enough of it. It looks so natural, feels so lightweight and nice on the skin, yet offers great coverage.

Lush R&B Hair moisturizer
It's been super hot and humid in August where I live, and that usually causes my hair to be out of control and frizzy but this product has honestly saved me. Besides the fact that it smells soooo nice, it makes my hair manageable and soft. I usually put it in my hair when its still wet, but you can also put it in while your hair is dry to tame frizz and flyaways. It's a must have product if you ever have issues with frizziness!

Jergens Shea Butter Deep Conditioning Moisturizer
I cannot say enough good things about this moisturizer. I've had some extremely dry skin lately (because of the sun) and this moisturizer has worked miracles. It smells super lovely and sweet, and it makes my skin incredibly soft without the gross, greasy feeling. It's also amazing to put on freshly shaved legs to make them extra smooth!!

Nyx Soft Matte Lip Cream in "San Paulo"
All around amazing product. Tastes nice, creamy formula that dries into the loveliest satin finish and the colour lasts ages. I've been wearing it every day for the past 2 weeks and I just cant get enough of it. The shade I have is in a lovely natural looking pink which is perfect for every day use to add that little something extra to your lips.

Victoria Secret Strappy Back Leopard Lace Push-up Bra
Aaaaahhhhhh probably my favourite purchase of the month. This bra is SO pretty its not even funny. It looks so incredible with the open-backed shirts that Pink sells and its also incredibly comfortable (bonusss!). I'm so glad I bought this, I honestly just can't get over how cute it is!

Shellac Manicure
So as you may have seen in my previous post, I recently went on vacation. Before leaving I decided to give shellac manicures a shot, since its something I've never tried before and I wanted to spring for a longer lasting manicure since I would be at the beach and knew my nail polish would be chipping like crazy. I know its nothing new, but to anyone who hasn't had a shellac manicure before, I very strongly suggest you try it out. I cannot praise it enough. 2 weeks of incredibly, shiny colour without a single chip. My nails were stronger than ever and did not break at all (and my nails usually break like nobody's business). It is so incredibly worth it and since I've now had it removed, I can tell you that my nails are still in great condition (it caused them no damage whatsoever besides a little dryness). It was definitely worth the money and I will be doing it again as soon as the semester is over! (Damn no nail polish during clinicals rule)

What did you love this month? Let me know! Hope you all had a lovely August and have an even lovelier September!
