First Impressions: June CurlKit

CurlKitI was recently sent the June CurlKit from Good Girl PR. I haven’t used anything yet but I wanted to share my first impressions with my Curlistas.

IMG_20130828_170406_wmThe first thing I noticed was a new design and logo. While I have never ordered a CurlKit I’ve seen them before and I noticed the packaging was different. When I opened the box the first thing I saw was CurlLife: A CurlKit Pulication. The cover has a picture of a bride and several references to Continue reading

ManiMon: My First Revlon and a Sale

IMG_20130825_171154_wmThis past weekend I bought my first bottle of Revlon nail polish. While I heard a lot of great things about Revlon, I have a rule: never spend more than than 5 bucks on a drugstore nail polish. (Although, there IS an exception to the rule: essie. LOL. It’s is my favorite!) Continue reading

Mani Mon: Pastel Party

IMG_20130819_162051_wmHappy Monday, dolls! As the summer comes to an end, I realized I had a few [new] pieces I still hadn’t worn. One piece in particular was a pair of neon pastel coral jeans I bought earlier this summer. I’m not big on OOTDs but since I made a special point to tie my outfit and nails together I’ll share both.

For this look I used two pastels and a glitter because, let’s be honest, I’m addicted to glitter.

IMG_20130819_162201_wmI used Coral Silk from Cover Girl on my pinky – which I have to admit I REALLY liked this time. I didn’t like it the first time I used it for my ombre nails. Check it out here on my thumb. I used Gelato in Venice by Julie G (y’all know I’m obsessed with her line) on my first 3 fingers and on my toes. Finally, I added A Star is Born from Julie G on my ring finger without color underneath. I wanted a pop of glam and I thought the silver glitter was a nice touch.

Here is the outfit.

IMG_20130819_163414_wmI thought the lavender top might be way too off so I tied a pastel multi-colored belt around my waist to bring it all together.
