*Press On Nails - Worth it?


Hello loves!

Every woman I know absolutely loves having fresh nails that while look amazing aren't exactly practical. 
I'm not one for fake nails as I find them difficult to complete basic tasks with and I can't bring myself to spend fifty to sixty dollars for a fill every couple of weeks. 
That's where imPress nails come in.

I received these complimentary from Influenster to try out and while I wasn't required to write a blog post I figured why not?

The design of these is right up my alley! The simple matte blue with a gold glitter accent nail is timeless and will always be in style. They look quite purple in the photo but I assure you in person they are a dark navy.
The kit came with 30 nails, a file, a prep pad and a cuticle pusher. 
The downfall with press on's is that they don't stand up to gel nails time wise. Unfortunately within about 5 hours into my work day the accent nail had fallen off. Lucky for me my manager at work just so happened to have a bottle of nail glue handy.
I ended up ripping them all off and re applying them with the nail glue. After re gluing them all into place they lasted for about two more days!
I know nail glue isn't the best thing for our nail beds but neither is having constant gel nails.
If you want those gorgeous nails you see all the bloggers and maybe even some people you know have I highly recommend press on's for a cheaper alternative and if you really want them to last I'd pick up a bottle of nail glue to use as the adhesive on these isn't quite strong enough to last.


Press on's or gel nails, which do you prefer?

LUSH - A French Kiss



Hey everyone!

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted. For a while there I felt really lost, constantly trying to think of new post ideas and everything I thought up didn't feel like it would be good enough. I was in a blogging rut which happens to the best of us.

Speaking of ruts and stress a bubble bath is always the best cure. 



That's where the Lush A French Kiss bubble bar comes in. Bubble bars are one of my favorite products Lush has to offer, Candy Mountain being my holy grail.

A French Kiss is infused with Rosemary, Lavender & Thyme. Lavender is and always has been a favorite scent of mine (not the chemical smelling lavender you smell in many products).

The bubble bars create mountains of bubbles opposed to the bath bombs that while look gorgeous and smell gorgeous don't provide bubbles as generously and I love to lie back and soak in the bubble glory.
A French Kiss turns the water into a lovely blend of purple and pink making you feel like a princess as you lie back and relax.
This is fantastic for anyone who needs to calm down before bed or who just had a rough day at work and needs some pamper time.

I'm sorry for my lack of posts, I will get back into the swing of things. 
Don't you worry!


What's your favorite LUSH product?

E.l.f. - Flirty Fuschia



Hey guys.

I know I just did a recent e.l.f polish review but I'm back with a new shade!
I hope you guys don't mind these posts and I'm sorry to be repetitive but this shade is perfect for Spring and
Summer.

It's a gorgeous bright pink, much brighter than the aforementioned shade almost leaning more towards a coral toned shade (though you can't tell in the photo).
Again however the formula is not up to par. It went on smooth and opaque in two coats but once again chipped within a day and who wants to spend time painting their nails for it to just chip off before the next morning even comes? 
Not me.

With it being a sample sized bottle I'll continue to use it this summer as the color is a stunning summer shade!

What's your favorite nail polish

Hello everyone!

So this will be my first giveaway that I've done on my own. Meaning, I bought these with my own money and will be shipping them out to the winner as well!

Unfortunately, due to shipping costs this giveaway will only be open to residents of the United States & Canada.

I'm going to be running it until next Friday so you have lots of time to enter and there is opportunities for extra entries as well.


I know it's not a lot but it is something and I wanted to thank those who follow and comment as it makes it feel like this is all worthwhile!

I love each and every one of you!
