Fall Nail Polish Haul!

Hey guys, 
Happy Fall everyone! Since it is officially Fall I think this haul is pretty appropriate. If you didn't know I am a huge Essie lover! The nail polishes are considered "4 free" which means that they are free of Dibutyl,Phlalate, Toluene, and Formaldehyde and they are eco-friendly!

1. Essie's Blanc - the perfect white its opaque and its definitely a staple in my nail polish collection. If I were to recommend one white nail polish it would be this one.
2. Essie's Topless and Barefoot- My go to nude color. Its been my go to light color these past couple of days. (Btw it was the color of my nails in the Deluxe Beauty Bag Giveaway.)
3.Essie's Lady Like-  About 3or 4 shades darker than Topless and Barefoot. Very feminine but I don't think it would be a staple in my collection. BUT, it's still very nice.
4. Essie's Chinchilly - Master Plan by Essie used to be my go to Grey but Chinchilly took its place. Such a pretty color!
5.Essie's Merino Cool- A beautiful mix of tan and grey.

6. Essie's Power clutch- This is a military green with a tint of grey.
7. Essie's Smokin' Hot-  Now this little guy I don't really know how to explain. It's a little brown and grey. Mostly brown.
8. Essie's Bobing for Baubles- Dark deep blue-grey. Love putting this color on my toes!

9. Essie's Midnight Cami- This is the navy blue. In the bottle it looks almost black with blue shimmer but once you put it on your nails it's the prettiest navy blue.


10. Finally! It's OPI's  turn- Peace Love and OPI. Now this color is a lot like For The Twill of It from Essie. This is a grey based duochrome.

11. Polka dot com by OPI- Now, this would not be one of my true nail polish hauls with out a glitter polish. This is a chunky pink and blue glitter polish. I love putting this on top of Blanc as well as Topless and Barefoot.

Thanks for spending time here! (btw,yes I know I have the word grey in almost all of my descriptions...LOL.) Talk to you Tomorrow! 

XOXO, Kiki

August Favorites

Happy September!!!

      You should know what that means!!! Oh wait...maybe you don't.  Well it's time for my August favorites.  I have tried out a lot of new products this month and would recommend most of them.  Let's get into it.

1. OPI's nail polishes in Lincoln Park After Dark and Lincoln Park At Midnight.  They are two extremely similar dark purple colors.  The only difference that I can see is that Lincoln Park After Midnight has a little bit of shimmer.  That is also why I didn't take a pic of the bottles because you guys are probably going to be thinking why did she buy two of the same nail polishes?!?! LOL
The price is $8.99 each.
2. One 'n Only Argan Oil.  I got this oil from Bed Bath And Beyond. This is my favorite oil to put on my crazy curly hair.  When I use this it is usually when my hair is wet from being washed.  The cost is $12.99 and most of the time you can find a 20% off coupon code:)
3. The third item is V.S. Pink Ready To Party Body Mist. OH MY LIPSTICK!!!!!  This smells so amazing! It is the perfect mix of pink lotus flower and apple!  A very girly scent.  The price is $18 or 2/$25 or 3/$30.
4. C.O. Bigelow Rose Salve.  This is a multipurpose product.  You can use it on your knees, elbows, face, lips and lastly cuticles.  I used to use this on my lips but it wasn't very good so I decided to start using it on my cuticles.  I use it two to three times everyday and it works miracles!  Now my cuticles look super nice and moisturized.  The price is $7.50.

5. eos lip balm in Raspberry Pomegranate.  This is a wonderful lip balm to just put on for a nice shine and healthy look to your lips.  The price is $3.99.

6. NYC Glossy Balm in Applelicious Pink.  This is a balm with a little bit of color.  Perfect for when you are on the run.  It feels super nice on the lips.  I am definitely going to be purchasing the rest of the NYC glossy balms.  The price is $2.99.
7. Elf Shimmer Gloss in Dream and the NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Beige have been my two favorite glosses of the month.  The elf shimmer gloss is a beautiful light pink with a little gold shimmer.  The NYX gloss is a gorgeous pink with a tint of nude like coloring.  The price of Elf is $2.00 and NYX is $5.00.
I hope you ladies enjoyed my August favorites.  Thanks for reading!
