New Colors For Fall

As you might already have known, I have a serious addiction to nail polishes. Having said that I of course had to stock up on some new polishes that are perfect for the Fall season. I personally will wear any color regardless of the season as long as I like the color but the changing seasons gave me an excuse to buy more! 🙂

Color Wheel 2

Here are swatches of the all the new colors!

Pool Party is a great deep blue color. It is probably a better color for the summer but I’m sure I’ll be sporting this soon! I just love the blues lately!

Jaded is a beautiful jade green color hence the name. I absolutely love jade jewelry and own a few so when I saw this I knew I had to have it.

Timeless is a light pink color that has a touch of nude to it. I think this color is going to look great on!

Marsala is a great color for the Fall. It is a deep red with specks of shimmer. It makes me think of apple picking!

Vintage is very similar to Marsala. They are almost identical except that Vintage is slightly less of a deep red.

Interstellar is just a fun deep purple with lots of shimmer and a touch of silver. I really like how the silver can be seen when it’s in the bottle. It sort of looks like how magnetic polish appears when painted on.

I don’t know how I managed to do it but I can’t seem to find the pictures of Desert Dune or Secret.

Desert Dune is a shimmery copper color. Perfect for Fall and the changing colors of the leaves.

Secret is a shimmery light purple color. It’s more ideal for the Spring season but I’m sure I’ll get some use out of it.

Well that wraps up the latest additions to the ever growing nail polish collection. Which one do you like the most?

Ipsy Bag- September

So now it’s time to share the contents of September’s Ipsy Bag!

This month’s theme is Face Fashion which is essentially Ipsy’s way of transitioning fellow beauty lovers into Fall.

DSC06343 (2)

This month’s bag I’ve been going back and forth with. I think that I love it and hate it all wrapped up into one weird feeling! I like the gold color for Fall but I would have preferred for the zipper to be on the very top of the bag. It’s cute but not something I would generally use. Who knows though? Maybe I’ll get into the Fall season and start using it.

Octavio Argan Oil

This is an argan oil to be used on your hair. It helps keep your hair to be silky smooth. A very small amount should be placed on your hand and worked into your hair.

Glam Glow Flashmud Brightening Treatment

This is a delicously smelling facial wash. It is to be applied to your face while your skin is dry. Leave it on for 20 minutes. Once time is up rinse with water. I’m excited to try this because I am always on the lookout for great face products.

Pixi By Petra

This is a mini brow trio in Shades of Brow. I’m not sure how interested in this I really am. I typically don’t need to use anything on my eye brows because they are ridiculously long and full already.

Trestique in Nantucket Nude

This is a mini matte lip crayon. I really like the nude color but I don’t think I will be able to wear it. I think it would look funny on me especially with my skin tone and hair color. I’ll end up giving it a try anyways because I’ll try just about anything once.

Evelyn Ona Cream Blush In Ash

I have no idea if that is even the correct name or not. I tried to look it up online but didn’t have any success. The actual color is much lighter and more of a neutral color but the picture makes it seem like a deep pink. It actually is a cream and reminds me of a lipgloss.

Well that wraps up another Ipsy Bag. Overall I’d say I could go either way on this one. I wasn’t overly thrilled with any of the products but I wasn’t disappointed either. What was in your Ipsy Bag this month? Let me know in the comments!

Target Beauty Box- September

I’ve finally got a minute to share what was included in September’s Beauty Box by Target.

I must admit that I am quite pleased with the contents of this month’s box!

Content Guide

Sticking with the theme of Fall!

Aquaphor Healing Ointment

This is perfect for the upcoming cooler weather. It is used to protect and repair dry and irritated skin. It can be used on lips, hands and feet. It is also works well on cracked skin or minor burns.

Colgate Optic White Platinum Express- white toothpaste

This is a teeth whitening toothpaste that is said to whiten teeth in 3 days. It is to be used at least twice on a daily basis the same way you would use regular toothpaste. It is also said to be enamel safe so it shouldn’t bother your teeth like how other teeth whitening products do.

Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil

This is an oil based lotion that is used to restore moisture to one’s hair. It also helps to protect hair when applied before using heat styling tools like a flat iron. I think it has a very light vanilla scent that is not overly powerful.

Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave in Conditioner

This is a leave in conditioning spray that is used to de-tangle hair while protecting it from heat styling tools and the sun. This is a vegan friendly product. The scent is really strong and reminds me of the smell of a perm mixture, not very pleasant.

Curls Creme Brule Whipped Curl Cream

This is a thick cream that is used to style hair. It helps define curls while taming frizz and keeping hair soft and not crunchy or hard. The scent is really light yet delicious. It reminds me of a vanilla cake.

Dove Quench Asbolute Creme Serum

This is a creme serum that is used on curly or coarse hair. It provides long lasting curl definition and frizz control. The scent is very perfumey. It is a little too stinky for me since I am very sensitive to scents.

Overall I am loving the items in this month’s box. I love that most of the focus was on hair products, especially since they are all something I can use. I enjoy trying new brands and products so trying out all these new products will be great.

Another Round of Zoya

Well first off I’d like to welcome myself back to the world of blogging! Buying a house has really been taking up all of our time! Between that and working full time neither one of us has had any time to do anything. Sadly, Laura has had little time to paint her nails as well! But anywho, today is all about the Zoya polishes that Laura purchased a few weeks back!

DSC06188

I’ve purchased Zoya before and loved the polishes. From the colors to the consistancy to the quality of the polish I loved it all so of course I had to go back for more! 🙂

This purchase was also a mini trio and I was really pleased with all the colors.

I can’t even decide which one I like the best!

First up is Selene, which is a sparkly green and almost looks blue in some light. It reminds me of Ariel’s fin, from The Little Mermaid. This color will work well for the Fall season.

Second in the mini trio is NYX. This is such a lovely color and of course I would like it as purple is one of my favorite colors. To be honest though it’s more of a lavender shade with lots of silver glitter. What girl doesn’t like glitter?

Last in the set is Leslie. This color is a pink with lots of shimmer that makes it change color in the light. It’s color really resembles an opal. I really love how the shimmer has blue and green tints to it.

Those are the latest additions from Zoya. They are really becoming one of my favorite polish brands!

I Love Fall Tag

bench-560435_1280

As much as I hate to see the summer go I really do love the fall season. Here in New Hampshire we get tons of color changing leaves that are so pretty to look at. The cooler weather starts making it’s way in and it’s time for fun things like apple picking, pumpkin picking and hayrides. It also means that Halloween is on it’s way! I think this saying wraps up my feelings about the summer ending, I hate to see you leave but I love to watch you go! (or something like that)

So without further waiting here is my completed I Love Fall Tag, that I found here.

1. What’s your favorite Fall lip product?

I would have to say my favorite Fall lip product is probably my pumpkin spice chapstick. At first I thought it was gross but after using it quite a bit it’s actually grown on me!

2. What is your favorite Fall nail polish (or what nail polish would you like to try?)

Well I have to admit that I don’t know about this one, mostly because what I want to try for Fall isn’t really nail polish. It’s actually water decals that I bought through Amazon. They are for Halloween and I bought them specifically for our Halloween Horror Nights trip. I can’t wait to use them and share them with everyone!

3. What is your favorite Fall Starbucks drink?

In all honesty I am not much of a Starbucks coffee fan. I actually prefer their apple cider. I believe they start offering it right around this time of year. It’s so good. If you enjoy warm apple cider than you must give this one a try!

4. What’s your favorite Fall candle?

I would have to say something either apple or cinnamon scented. I love them both! I wouldn’t even mind an apple cinnamon mixture! I love the smell of both. They remind me of Fall!

5. What’s  your favorite fall scarf or accessories?

I love a white and black chevron patterned scarf that I have. It’s really soft and warm and perfect for the Fall. I think I bought it like a year or so ago on clearance for $3.00.

6. Haunted house, haunted hay ride, or haunted corn maze?

Well, for me personally I would say none! I am not a big fan of anything scary. Dave on the other hand would say haunted houses. He really loves Fall for all the Halloween happenings!

7. What’s your favorite Halloween movie?

My favorite Halloween movie would have to be Trick or Treat. There is just something so creepy about Sam as he meanders around on Halloween. It gives me the creeps just thinking about it!

8. What’s your favorite candy to eat on Halloween?

Well in all honesty, I’d probably eat just about any type of candy. I generally prefer something with chocolate and peanuts like a Snickers but I also really like Reese’s peanut butter cups. But for me candy is candy, any kind will do!

9. What are you dressing up as on Halloween?

Since I’ll be at Halloween Horror Nights and they don’t allow guests to dress up (probably to not confuse crew members with guests) I will not be dressing up for Halloween. Although I did buy a cute little witch hat that is attached to a head band. I wonder if they would let me in wearing that?

10. What is your favorite thing about fall?

I really love just about everything. I enjoy the crisp cool feeling in the air, pumpkin and apple flavors and scents. I enjoy handing out candy to trick or treaters. There is just something so nice about this time of year.

I hope you enjoyed this Fall tag! I enjoyed completing it because it’s just an awesome time of year. Feel free to complete the tag yourself or answer the questions in the comments!
