Nail Products that flopped!

I am beginning to explore many different nail products. And there are some that are just a fail for me.

1. Nail stickers- not the decals, but the full nail stickers that try to pass for Sally Hansen. These dont apply well and just don't stay on. I've tried many different types. Cute but don't work.

2. Wet and Wild dollar polishes.
These just don't stay on my nails. They have great colors but they just don't.  The only polishes in this line that seem to work are the glitters.

3. Nail Caviar. While it's a super cute way to do your nails it just doesn't stay. While it doesn't take much effort to do it. Paint, put micro balls on, and the top coat. It just feels weird to me and gets caught on things. Granted I'm really rough on my nails. Also, people might lead you to believe it lasts your whole manicure time I give it 1- days if that!

Nails of the week- Zoya

<p>This cute bright shimmery Barbie pink is a jelly from Zoya. This color is called Starla.  A jelly is kind of like see through polish with color. I absolutley love jellies. I dont know if its just the Zoya brand, but jellies just do really well on my nails. My accent nail is from my last post OPI DS Magic. Both of these together just pop and complement each other. I was getting major complements. My daughter was even impressed LOL.

Covergirl & Olay Tone Rehab 2-in-1 Review

I was able to try the foundation and powder thru bzzagent. The foundation was a pretty good match and blended nicely. You can choose to either use it as full coverage or light depending how much you squeeze out. The 2-in1 idea is great because the Olay moisturizer is in it! Apply and go. I recommended using a brush to apply both the foundation and powder. The price point will differ between stores I've seen it as high as $16 but us supposed to be $14. This is probably good for people that are in the dryer side because it does have moisturizer inside. The wear us also great it did last all day.

Nails Of The Week- Not Your Kids DS! Featuring OPI

<p>This OPI is one of the most expensive nailpolish I've ever purchased at $12.50 . This color DS Magic is part of their diamond dust collection. Yes, there is suppose
to be finely crushed up diamonds in it! The diamond dust looks and feels different then shimmer or glitter. When I was starring at it in Planet Beauty I really couldn't figure out what was in it. I finally asked what it was and she nicely explained it to me. I chose this blue and purple duo chrome stricktly because it was gorgeous. The only dissapointing thing about it was that on the nail you just can't see the purple. None the less you are still getting OPI quality and I'm still happy. It really is a gorgeous blue. Would I buy another? No way! Unless I saw it on clearance. I just can't justify the price.<br>
Happy Painting! </p>

Always Radiant Infinity Review

I normally don't talk about feminine products on here but this brand has changed me over. It was also before Influenster sent these in the Latina Vox Box I discovered these. I was on a search for reasonably price protection but didn't look questionable and I stumbled on the Radiant brand. The Always pads are dependable and thin with their "bouncy" protection. The Tampax tampons protect  great and have a nifty pocket to put them into the trash. I recommended both products. Pick one up next time you're at the store.

NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine Lipgloss Review

Nude in new York by NYC is a great neutral lipgloss color. You can wear it alone or on top of other lip products. This lipgloss is not too sticky, it gives just enough shimmer and feels good, not drying. It also smells great! This has been in my purse since I got it from Influenster in my Latina Vox Box. When I see these in the store I'm going to try a different color after all the price is on point ($2.49).

Bath & Body Works NEW & Improved Shower Gel Review

This little Pink Chiffon shower gel smells good. It smells floral with a hint if sweet that is not overwhelming. All Bath and Body Works products leave you smelling great. It lathers up well and does the job. While it does have Shea Butter in it now it does help but, I have dry sensitive skin. So I cannot use this product all the time, just whenever I feel like smelling extra nice! Whenever I do get the chance to get them at a great price I do. They make great gifts! Thanks to Influenster for letting me try this one from my Latina Vox Box.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen Review

Once you open this little bottle it smells so good. Like a coconut paradise. When I think Hawaiian Tropic I think sun tan oil, not sunscreen. So I was quite happy to receive this product from Influenster in my Latina Vox Box. I tried this out and the SPF is good and it feels pretty close to a lotion.  So now that summer is over if you see it on sale or clearance pick it up! BTW I took these pictures!
Happy Tanning!

I'm Back!

Sorry for the super long post. I hope it's interesting and informative. And no this isn't because someone askes me to talk about, it's just some stuff that I wanted to share with you.- ;)

Okay so its only fair to my few readers to be blogging again as well as working on YouTube. So let me say hopefully I'll be posting at least two a week.

Let's start with a run down of my life if you don't already know. I work full time with children. Have to tend to my home and family. I have 2 children a boy age, 8 about to be nine, a girl age 4 just started preschool, and a step daughter age 16. Just a FYI about my children I choose not to show them in anything I do. Me and my husband do it for the safety of them. Will this change? I'm not certain. I also do YouTube videos, blog, tweet, Facebook, Pinterest, ect...( the fun part).

Now to talk about why I was absent from internet anything... I've been sick for about 4 months now. I'm still not going reveal what exactly it is at this point, just because I do want to share everything at once to help other people. But don't worry its nothing huge or serious. But it was bad enough to take up all if my sick and vacation time and then some. At my worst point I could barley do anything by myself. But now I'm managing with a lot if help from my husband, easy meals and( I know bad) take out, and turning a blind eye to messes. I try and get out much more than I did. Painfully I move on with my life. I just want normality in my life, that's why I decided to come back. During my really hard days, anything beauty related was the last thing on my mind. God just picked me up and said lets move on.

My life and financial situation always changes. So if you think beauty people on YouTube don't know what you're going thru, you're wrong. There have truly been times in my life where we've barely made it through a month, let along to think of even buying a cheap nailpolish. What I show you discounts, couponing, and all is real.

From all this my true dream would be just to do the whole YouTube thing, and be there for my family. But truth be told YouTube only pays well if you are lucky. Theres two strikes against me I'm older about to turn 33 and plus size. While some people complain that others on YouTube use too many high end products and are too young or immature, they are still watching them. I do too. The truth is young, bubbly, and attractive sells. There is so much competition out there. There's always room for the next person. But I seriously love YouTube and the whole idea behind it... type in anything and it's there at your disposal real people, real ideas, some real opinions LOL.

Okay, so I know you're not asking, and it might be in bad taste. I'm going to put it out there. I don't make any money off of YouTube or get any sponsors or get any products for free. Would I like to? Yes of coarse, who wouldn't? Will that change? Only the Lord knows.

 I truly want to show everyone that does watch or read that no matter how much your making you really can be on trend just with a little more effort than people who can go out and buy whatever they want. I love makeup and it truly is an art form. Anyone at any status or level can learn how to do amazing things with it.

Sorry, but I've been watching Julie & Julia and it just inspired me to really talk to you guys. Hope you don't mind and, "Is there somebody out there? "-Julie

Lots of love and happy shopping!
