I like switching up my shower gel occasionally just so I don’t get stuck in a rut. Plus there are always new scents available, so it’s exciting to try new things.
To me, shower gels aren’t huge commitments because after just a couple of months or so, you can easily finish a bottle, and you’re onto the next.
Recently, I tried the new Dial Lavender & Twilight Jasmine Body Wash, which is antibacterial.
I haven’t tried many Dial body washes, so I decided to give this one a go!
On a dreary day, the easiest thing you can do to perk up your mood is to wear nail polish in a bright colour.
May I suggest Nicole by OPI Some Hearts from the Carrie Underwood Collection?
It’s a pigmented, creamy, vibrant coral pink that most definitely pops when you wear it, so it’s ideal for when you’re having a terrible day, and you need something to brighten your spirits in seconds.
The colour coupled with the exceptional formula is a real winner, and this is a fantastic colour to welcome the spring and summer months. (I just feel like this is a warm-weather shade, although you can be sure that I’d wear it anytime of year. Actually, I did wear this manicure last year, probably around October or so.
The Zoya Awaken Collection for Spring 2014 is full of cute colours that are definitely very appropriate for the warmer weather that’s hopefully coming soon! (I’m so over you, Winter!)
There are 6 gorgeous shades, and I think it should be obvious that my favourites are the green, blue, and purple. However, I’m also really digging that pale cantaloupe!
Check out my quick swatches of the Zoya Awaken Collection, and then come back later when I review them in-depth after I’ve worn them as full manicures.
I’m not as familiar with neutral nail polishes as I am with bold colours, but I’m liking them more and more because they can make your whole hand look elegant. Plus they’re super easy to match with everything in your wardrobe!
The Zoya Naturel Collection features 6 shades that are office-appropriate, even in the most conservative establishments.
If you’ve ever painted your nails with Zoya, you know that they have great formulas, and these cremes are no exception – like butter!
Today, I’ll be giving you a Quick Look post on the Zoya Naturel Collection. (In a future post, I’ll provide in-depth reviews and more swatches.)
In October 2013, I did a Quick Look post on Nicole by OPI Love My Pups, which is from the Carrie Underwood Collection that was released January 2014.
It’s been a while, but I’m finally bringing you my full review on it!
You know me – the louder a polish is, the more I’m drawn to it like a moth to a flame.
But, as you may have remembered me saying a few times, I’m beginning to develop a soft spot for subtle shades. (Maybe someone’s lacing my water with something?)
Whatever it is, I’m really enjoying how clean and chic a soft shade can look. There’s a natural elegance about it.
The next little while, I’m going to be incredibly busy as I’m moving verrrry soon – it’s right around the corner! (It’s a very exciting, but stressful time, too. I bought my first home!)
But I didn’t want to take a hiatus from blogging during this time because I love doing this.
Readers like you are really important to me, so I’m going to try my best to keep my Monday-to-Friday blogging schedule for as long as I can before I move. It’s going to be quite a juggling act, though, as I have a full-time job, and I also do freelance jobs. I don’t know how things are going to pan out, but you can be sure that I’ll try my best to minimize any blogging gaps. (Please bare with me if it takes me longer than usual to reply to comments left on my blog and social media.)
For this reason, due to time constraints, I’ve decided to put together some Quick Look posts, since a lot of you seem to like them. (Haha, you’ll see from the upcoming posts that I have a lot of new polishes!) Also, I have some photos from manicures I wore before, but never reviewed on here. So I’m going to pull them out.
In today’s post, I have for you the Nicole by OPI Roughles Collection, which features texture nail polishes that are fun, Easter-y, textured, and speckled. In addition to bottle shots, you’ll also see some quick swatches! Enjoy! (Please stay tuned in the future for my in-depth reviews and swatches.)
OPI I Just Can’t Cope-acabana is from the Brazil Collection, and it’s the most pigmented yellow nail polish I’ve ever worn!
I was very surprised because, going into the painting process, I was expecting to need to use 4 coats. (A lot of yellows I’ve tried in the past need multiple coats to get decent coverage.)
OPI I Just Can’t Cope-acabana only needed 2 medium coats to get the coverage you see in this photo and the other ones in this post! Zero streakiness at this point. Colour me impressed!
P.S. Today is the LAST DAY to enter my OPI Brazil Collection giveaway for Canadians! Be sure to get your entry in by 11:59 pm EST!
