Zoya Happi - My Notd
*(PIC HEAVY... I think I took too many pic this time.. distracting myself from moving..LOL )


I know I swatched this before. However, I think I was in a rush and used thicker coats so the thing never dried. So, I tried again with smaller coats and my favorite topcoat--that blue Orly topcoat stuff... hmmph running out. I need to get more.

Nail success this time!

I need something Happi!
I love this color! I'm glad it worked out this time.
2 coats and it looks amazing but this is three coats. It shows off the pink more. lol.

*Argh! so much moving stuff! 
I'm really freakin out. We should be on Hoarders...
No one wants to get rid of anything!!. Even when we know there is no space. 
1. Why do we need an extra bed if there is only 2 rooms. 
2. Why do we need 8 old ass tvs..I think one is even broken!! I swear

"Oh we can send that to Ghana...." um no..that is not an excuse. We should get rid of it! Why would they want a broken ass tv...:?"

CRAZZY..

*Excuse my rough nails..moving + perfect nails do not exist. 
*PIC HEAVY... I think I took lotts of pic this time.. distracting myself from moving..LOL











Coral Compare Part 2

Coral Compare Part 2

From Left to Right:

Color Club -Wildflower, Sinful Colors - Thimbleberry, Essie - Peach Daquiri, Eyeko - Coral Polish

All of these are 2 coats. All of the formulas were great for this batch of corals. Wildflower is the most pigmented. This is a really pretty reddish coral . Thimbleberry is the most 'coral'. Peach Daquiri is the most sheer and peachy. VNL at two coats. Eyeko Coral polish and Wildflower look like the closest but Wildflower is a bit more pigmented and red than Eyeko Coral.

Ahh so many corals to compare! I think I have to come back to this project and find some dupes.

*Sorry about the state of my nails. I'm moving.. and my cuticles/nails are actually becoming really rough from all the moving boxes.

Comparing these four corals. Left to right.

Sinful - Big Daddy, Pro NailCare- Fresh, Wet n Wild- Blazed , Zoya - Kara

These are all two coats. Many Corals! I showed my mom my nails. She said that they all looked the same...Lol.
But let's critique for nail polish freaks.

1. Sinful: Big Daddy is the most orange... not pink
2. Pro NailCare - Fresh - really nice formula for something at the dollar tree
3. Wet N Wild - Blazed- Lightest pinkish coral. Needs many more coats for opaque-ness.
4. Zoya - Kara more orange than pink..Nice application. I think Big Daddy is a close dupe.

Hair Sunday - Shampoo

, , , 0 Comments

Product Review: Shea Moisture Shampoo 
Moisture retention shampoo
w/sea kelp, argan oil, shea butter


This shampoo is what I used on Sunday. I think so far this is the best shampoo I've tried. This goes in my favorite shampoo list. This makes my hair soft and keeps the mositure. My hair is dry naturally so this keeps the moisture in. It has a lotion consistency when used. I like this a lot!

Summer Corals

Wet n Wild - Blazed

Man, I have a lot of these pinky coral type of colors. I should try to compare them soon. I think they all kind of look different in the bottle (that's why I keep buying them) but  in reality they all end up the same on my hand. No more corals for me. lol This is 4 coats. It's a little squishy. VNL at 3 coats. But it has a nice smooth application. Nothing too thick.

3 coats of pretty metallic pink. It is a little streaky though, but most metallic polishes are. It's a nice enough color to overlook the streaks. :0D

Komen for the fifth consecutive year to offer Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts. By launching our first-ever Pink Shatter coat, we hope this exciting new textured hue will generate lots of awareness for this cause.”



Each bottle of Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts has a special pink-ribbon tag and pink cap wrap to call attention to breast cancer awareness. OPI will also be making its annual donation of $25,000 to Komen for the Cure. Pink Shatter coat contains no DBP, Toluene, or Formaldehyde, and it also features OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.



The limited edition Pink Shatter: Pink of Hearts will be available throughout the months of September and October 2011 at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.

Summer Yellows

Ruby Kisses - Cheezums
Well, I wanted to try this new Ruby Kisses line I saw at my local addiction store/beauty store across the street.  The formula is annoying and thick... and the brush is wider than the original Ruby Kisses! Therefore, the application is really messy. 

The brush is this hard plastic, so it's impossible to use thin layers, because there will be big brush strokes. And this polish dries weird too... semi matte semi shiny.....? This is 3 coats. This costs one more dollar than the original Ruby Kisses. Why...more money? 2.99...? The formula is not good. I don't think I will be trying anymore from this line.

Tickled Pink

Wet n Wild - Tickled Pink
I like this polish. Nice formula. Nice light pink color. I think I might have to stock up on this one. Cheap and cute pink cream to wear all the time...ahaha I love me pink... I think it's kind of not normal. *sigh* Anyways. This is a 3 coater swatch. It dries shiny too, so you don't really need a top coat. This is a swatch.... it has no top coat.










Hair Sunday - The Great Detangler

Taliah Waajid- The Great Detangler
Um.. hmm. not sure where my mom got this.. maybe online at amazon/walgreens. I googled the price and it's about 8 dollars.

Product Claim:
"Eliminates tangles on contact. Softens hair, defines curl pattern. Stops breakage while combing curly, kinky, coily and wavy hair. Hair Detangler is rich with moisturizers, protein and conditions. Coats and protects hair while softening. For best results, use the complete line of Black Earth Products." 
 Well,  I really like this product. This is probably one of my favorites so far. It does not really define my curls at all, but it really just smooths my hair out- no tangles or breakage. So, it does mostly what it claims. You don't need a lot of product to soften the hair. so I won't be needing to buy this every other week. It is not greasy/oily. Product buildup is minimal with this product. Also, I REALLY like how it smells. Not too strong or overpowering.

I like this. yey!

Crackle Time

China Glaze- Crushed Candy

Trying out the whole crackle trend. hmm with China Glaze Crushed Candy and Finger Paints My Art Belongs to you. This crackle was a little thick, so I put some thinner in it. I think I need to put a little more in, but I ran out of my thinner. I like this color combo. My left hand didn't crackle as much because I probably waited a bit too long and the underpolish dried fast. So many layers of polish. lol 4 from the otherday + 1 more pink layer + crackle. 6 layers of polish!
