Used Up: B&BW Wild Honeysuckle Shower Gel

I just finished up my bottle of Bath & Body Works Wild Honeysuckle Shower Gel.
This is one of my favorite scents from B&BW; a nice fresh floral scent that really stays on my skin. I want to go out and get a replacement, but I'm trying to restrain myself, since I have three other shower gels that I need to finish up first. Right now, I'm alternating between The Body Shop Strawberry shower gel, B&BW Warm Vanilla Sugar shower gel, and Dial Yogurt body wash in Vanilla Honey.

Rainbow Manicure

In honor of New York State's Senate approving same-sex marriagelast night, I did a quick rainbow manicure.

Sorry for the less-than-stellar picture. A couple nails on my left hand smudged, which meant I had to take pics of my right hand. Impossible, I tell you!

In terms of polishes, I used Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Cherry Red (red), Sinful Colors Great Wall (orange), Color Club Almost Famous (yellow), OPI What's with the Cattitude? (blue), and Zoya Mira (purple). I wish I had used a darker blue, but I don't have a creme blue any darker than Cattitude. I did 2 coats of each, except for the yellow which took 3 to even it out, and topped with Seche Vite.

That's all for now. Til next time!

NOTW: Sephora By OPI Shopping Frenzy

I could not decide on what I wanted to do my nails this week. But, I finally settled on Sephora By OPI Shopping Frenzy. This is my first Sephora By OPI polish, and now I want to go get some more!

This is 2 coats of Shopping Frenzy over basecoat, and topped with Poshe. This was completely opaque at 1 coat (!!!), but I did a 2nd coat just to make sure everything was even. I love this color. Its a bright pink/fuschia that has a blue/purple flash. So pretty.

Til next time!

NOTW: OPI Who The Shrek Are You?

I decided to cross another of my polished of the 'untried' list. I've used this polish before, as part of my St. Patty's Day manicure, but never by itself. This is OPI Who the Shrek Are You? from their Shrek Forever After Spring 2010 collection.
This was 2 coats of Who the Shrek Are You? over basecoat, and topped with Seche Vite. On my ring finger, I decided to add a coat of NYC 110A (I believe its the same thing as Luxery Lime) on my ring finger. The NYC polish, by itself, is a very sheer yellow-green with medium green shimmer. Over Shrek, it gives the polish a pearly/frosty finish.

I love this OPI color. It's the exact same color as this slime (gak?) that I had as a kid. Good times.

Til next time!

NOTW: Zoya Phoebe

For this week, I decided to try out Zoya Phoebe, from their Mod Matte collection.

Phoebe is a gorgeously bright electric blue, that I can't stop staring at. I did 2 coats over a basecoat, and topped it with Seche Vite. The top coat really brings out the shimmer. Then, I added Sally Hansen's white crackle, Snow Blast, on my ring finger as an accent.

I really love how this turned out. I can't believe it took me so long to try out Phoebe, it's such a pretty color. And I got tons of compliments when I went to the store.

Unfortunately, I decided that the day after doing my nails is a good time to start scrubbing down the kitchen cabinets....without gloves. Needless to say, this manicure is wrecked. Bummer.

In other news, I recently started up a music blog, Records Spinning. Check it out if you're interested, and let me know what you think!

Til next time!
