UV Gel Nail Polish in "Cajun Shrimp" (Guest Post via Erica @mirror_princess)

"Cajun Shrimp"

This is the UV Gel Nail Polish in the color "Cajun Shrimp." It costs $22 at the nail salon. I like the gel polish! It took about 5 minutes to dry so I didn't have to worry about smudging them or messing them up.

Walmart and Ulta also sell a UV Gel Nail kit for $50.

Wish List

Hey Guys! It seems like so long since I've posted on here.............

Honestly, it's just because I haven't found anything that I like enough to blog about lately.   And.... I haven't really been into  a lot of products being released, not even nail polish!

 I have almost everything I want, and if it's not a Coral lip or cheek color.........................  I'm probably not interested.  (lol)

But here are a few things on my Sephora Wish List for Spring!

Bvlgari Omnia Coral Jewel Charm
I really want to try Bvlgari's Omnia Coral Jewel Charm Perfume. Its notes of Bergamot, Gogi Berry, Hibiscus Flower, Water Lily, Pomegranate, and Cedar Wood give a Fruity/Floral scent.

Fresh Sugar Coral Tinted Lip Balm

 I'm also excited to see that Fresh has a new Coral Tinted Lip Balm that is sold exclusively at Sephora.com.  I already own this Lip Balm in Plum, and it's one of my favorite things ever. lol

Dior Addict Lip Glow

And lastly, I've BEEN wanting to pick up this Dior Addict Lip Glow for a while. It claims to responds to the color chemistry of your lips to create a shade that is uniquely yours. Smooth it on to moisturize, add sun protection, and enhance your natural lip color. But it's $30!!! For a Lip Balm?!?!?

NOTW: Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color in 2% Milk

This week I'm wearing Wet N Wild Megalast Nail Color in "2% Milk."  I started a new job at the end of last week, so I figured this would be a pretty safe color.

Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color in "2% Milk"


"2% Milk" is a Sheer, Ivory Cream color.

Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color in "2% Milk" (Macro Shot)

The formula of this polish is thick and creamy, but unlike other light colored nail polishes, the color applied evenly and streak free.  This color is really pretty when left sheer, but I decided to use 3 coats to get a more Opaque shade.

What I'm Loving: Fresh Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 in "Sugar Plum"


Fresh Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 in "Sugar Plum"

I finally decided to pick up this Fresh Tinted Lip Treatment in "Sugar Plum" last month when I was at Sephora.  

Fresh Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 in "Sugar Plum"


Here's Sephora's Blurb about the product:

"Sugar, a natural humectant, ensures long-lasting moisture while hydrating meadowfoam and black currant seed oils condition the lips. The formula is further enriched with antioxidant-rich vitamins to defend against wrinkle-causing free radicals and provides year-round protection from damaging UV rays. This versatile treatment allows for buildable coverage to customize a sheer or rich hue and is the perfect partner to the bestselling Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15." [Sephora.com]


My Thoughts: 
I really LOVE this Lip Treatment.  
Pros:
-The color is a really pretty Plum/Wine shade, and it feels comfortable on my lips.  
-It goes on smoothly, and leaves my lips feeling hydrated even after the color has worn off.
-All of Fresh's Lip Balms have a slight Lemon scent that is definitely noticeable, but not overpowering.  


Cons:
-The only thing I didn't really like about this Lip Treatment is that the color doesn't last very long at all, so I do have to reapply throughout the day.
-And at $22.50,  it's EXPENSIVE!

Products I've Used Up (February)

Here are the products that I've used up for the month of February.

February Empties


February Empties:
Vaseline Lip Therapy.  I keep this on my night-stand to use throughout the night.  It's a really great, inexpensive lip  moisturizer.  Will repurchase.

Mini Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment. I got this as a free gift from Sephora for my birthday (V.I.B. members).  I LOVE this.  I have the full size lip treatment in the Plum color, and I've been wearing it almost everyday. I would definitely purchase the full size of the original.  The only downside is that it's $22!

Carmex Vanilla Moisturizing Lip Balm. This does the job, but I'll probably just purchase the Vaseline lip therapy from now on.  And I have no idea why it's called "Vanilla." It smells exactly like the regular Carmex.

Fancy by Jessica Simpson Eau de Parfum.  I already purchased the full size bottle of this.  It has a very sweet, caramel scent that some people may find too heavy (especially in warmer months) but I wear it year round.

Berry Summer Vanillas Fragrance Mist.  This is from Bath and Body Works.  I probably won't repurchase because I'm not into this particular scent at all anymore.  Honestly, I used this as a room spray. (It worked GREAT for that purpose. It leaves a light/lasting scent).

Clean and Clear Morning Burst Skin Brightening Facial Scrub.  This was a "Holy Grail" product for me a few months ago, but I don't think I'll be repurchasing it now.  I prefer the Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleansing Pads that I used up last month. [ Click Here for a full review of Clean and Clear.]

Suave Sweet Pea and Violet Invisible Solid Deodorant.  I liked this.  I'm not really picky about deodorants because they all work the same for me so I just usually get whatever is on clearance.  (lol)

Ampro Pro Styl Shine 'n Jam Conditioning Gel (regular hold).  This holds my hair in place without leaving a heavy residue.  Already repurchased.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste. This is my favorite toothpaste.  Already repurchased.  [Click Here for a full review.]

Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant Body Lotion.  I'm sure everyone is familiar with this product by now.  I think it's one of the BEST drugstore body lotions. It's creamy, and provides lasting moisture throughout the day.

St. Ives Purify Exfoliating Body Wash.   I REALLY love the way this smells.  The Mineral Salt and Sea Kelp gives it a clean and fresh "Oceany" scent.  There is A LOT of Mineral Salt in this so it's great for exfoliating, but it does leave a residue in the bath tub.  Regardless, I would still repurchase this.

Let me know what you think.
