Rainbow Honey Nail Polish Mystery Bag

Image

I recently found Rainbow Honey nail polish through some people in the julep swap group I am apart of. They were talking about a mystery bag for only $10.00, also they had a coupon for 5 dollars off. I thought this would be a great opportunity to try out their products. Including shipping the price of the bag was $8.25, which was a pretty awesome price. My first impression is Rainbow Honey is a pretty sophisticated Indie polish. The polishes are labeled nicely, and I really like presentation. I got several products in my mystery bag, so let’s talk about what I got.

Image

Image

 The first polish I got was Sparkling Agave it was a mini. I like the bottles, they are so cute. I really like the color I got. It’s so pretty, I love the color and it has a nice shimmer.

Image

I also got Puffin Party in a mini. I think the name is right, it definitely looks like a party.Not sure if this is my style though, but I don’t know till I try it!

Image

I should of put a penny next to it because it is itty bitty! It is a perfume with rollerball. The smell is really not me. Maybe it would make a cute gift with other items.

Image

Top coat mini! You can never have enough top coat.

And a sparkle glittery pot! There is quite a bit of glitter in it. 🙂 I never use loose glitter maybe I should start using loose glitter.

My Julep Haul

Image

 Here is my haul! I recently did a Valentines swap and the girl I swapped with gave me a %50 off entire purchase  with Julep in my swap box. So I had to use it! What a steal, when do you ever get 50% off an entire purchase anywhere? I would of got more…but I have been more reckless with nail polish spending. So here’s what I got !

Image

Mind Your Mani $75.00

I purchased the Mind Your Mani kit, I had to do it because it was already on sale for $39.99, with 50% off it is only $ 19.99. And for 20 bucks you get 3 nail masks (which are amazeballs), I am pretty sure I am going to use a pack tomorrow! Then you get a Might Nail & Cuticle Serum ( I have a mini version right now but extra never hurts). Freedom Top Coat, and Oxygen Nail treatment. All of these items in this kit I currently own, but having back ups is nice. I am not crazy about Julep’s top coat ( it gets wayy too goopy after awhile). But I absolutely love julep’s oxygen! Anyway what a steal.

Julep Eye Sheen in Warm Fig Shimmer $ 18.00

I didn’t purchase a box for February this month, initially I wasn’t excited by the eyeshadow included nor was I wowed by the color choices. But after I saw people posting about how much they liked these liquid shadows (that lasted hours) I had to purchase. I never use liquid shadow but these colors looked so pretty when swatched. This one is Warm Fig Shimmer. I wore it today, it is a very warm color. The wear wasn’t amazing, since it did start to crease but it’s nothing a little primer won’t help.

Julep Eye Sheen in Dusty Taupe Shimmer $18.00

 I also bought Dusty Taupe Liquid shadow, I haven’t used this one but I am looking forward to it.  One thing I didn’t convey from these pictures is..holy crap are they tiny! I should of put a penny so you could see the size to scale. They are little, but I think  a little might go a long ways. 🙂 We shall see!

 Julep Color in Max $14.00

I somehow missed this polish and I have been wanting a polish with black and white glitter This is a topper polish, I am looking forward to using it, especially with a white or black polish. I am just hoping it isn’t goopy, I keep having this issue with different Julep glitters I own.

Image

Julep Color in Jane $14.00

Inspired by Jane the CEO and Founder of Julep. This one I kept hearing great things about and I kept seeing gorgeous swatches of. Also I am a big fan of rose gold. Can’t wait to use it.

Image

 Julep Surprise Color Rush Lip Gloss $20.00

This is another new item Julep released. It is supposed to work for everyone and suit every type. The color in swatches looked gorgeous. So hopefully I like it.

Image

Blank Canvas Lip Primer $ 22.00

This I did not order, but it showed up instead of the Blank Canvas Face Primer I wanted. :/ I am not sure if I am going to use this. I have heard bad things from so many different mavens. It is just not my thing, primer for my lips..why?  But Julep did let me keep this for free since there was a mix up. I might just swap it or sell it.

Image

Blank Canvas Mattifying Face Primer $ 28.00 

I’m bummed this wasn’t in my order because it was one of the top things I wanted to use! I never use primer (yes it’s awful) but I really need to start! This product has awesome reviews too! I called Julep ASAP as soon as I realized I was given the wrong product. There was practically no wait time. Mary the rep was helpful and I got an email later that day saying the order has been processed.

Anyway that is my haul! So thankful for the 50% off coupon, I only spent 64 dollars on everything! The best! 🙂 Thanks Julep!

Glitter Guilty Box Review February 2014

It is here! Glitter Guilty is a nail polish subscription box. It includes a mini nail polish, and a full size polish, as well as a yummy sweet or two. I have so many things I have been ordering online, my bad when I got this box I thought it was something else and was pleasantly surprised and happy. This is my favorite Glitter Guilty Box, I really like the colors and they are very Valentinesy. Yes it is a word.

Image

Image

My Full Size polish is Peacock Party, I really like this one. I absolutely love purple and blue that is my ultimate favorite color combination. I put it on as soon as I got my box. The picture here doesn’t really capture the blue flakes that well. When you apply the polish a lot of glitter comes out, so it definitely takes some fishing. But is a really cool glitter polish. There are many different shaped and sized glitter. This is fun.

Image

This mini is called Cupid’s Crossbow, I really like this mini too, Pretty pink glittery-ness! This polish looks fun I like that there is white glitter in it as well as a few shades of pink. This nail polish looks even better when it’s on.

Where’s the chocolate picture? Yea I ate it so fast I forgot to take a picture, I fail. :p Anyway that’s my box, I love the colors I got this month. 🙂

Snowed In

Greetings from Snowy Portland! This is my first year living here and I know that the winter weather we have been having is not the typical, but I am enjoying it. I live in a very hilly area and don’t have 4WD so I have been snowed in like much of the population. There are only so many things I can do right?

Well I can play out in the snow with my super cute Sorels.

Image

Play with my Puppy (who LOVES the SNOW).

Watch the snow accumulate.

Finally get around to making that Loaded Baked Potato Chowder you kept hearing about in Pinterest and Facebook.
