Fine Finger Friday : O.P.I San Francisco collection

20130816-142038.jpg

I know I’m probably the last person on earth to know about this, better yet blog about it! But this OPI collection!!!

SAN FRANCISCO!

I love San Francisco it’s such a beautiful city with so many beautiful landmarks! And I love it even more because I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This chic little collection includes 15 new OPI shades, 3 of them being liquid sands. The names are super cute to go along with their uber cute colors! Some of my faves to name a few are “it’s all San Andrea’s fault” , ” I knead sour-dough” and ” first date at the golden gate”.

Love love the names they totally speak the heart of San Francisco!

I need to buy a couple of items from this collection! Did anyone buy any? I’d love to know which ones you picked up.

NCLA a super cool nail/manicure company based out of Southern California! I was always intrigued with their ridiculously Dope Nail wraps and bright nail polish colors. I finally invested in some of their nail wraps and might I add I got tons of compliments on them!

Slightly Gangster and Super Chic at the same time! These bandana nail wraps come with red bandanas and black bandanas! It also includes a nail file! Pictured Below

What’s in the Box Wednesday: Julep Maven July Box

ImageIt is literally Christmas in July! Literally two days after receiving my June Julep Maven box I received my July box! Although this is only my second box with Julep this is my fave! The theme, the packaging, the inserts, the colors of the polish I absolutely love it all.

The theme is “California Coast” it has the golden gate bridge in the background. It’s representing the beautiful San Francisco. Sooo pretty. The colors represent the sun and the ocean. The brown zig zagged tissue represents the sand! This box was just perfectly put together!

The marketing and product development team did an outstanding job!

The colors I received this month are gorgeous as well.

I received Angela the dark navy with teal iridescent.

Nadia the golden yellow

and Tracy the Navy with silver glitter!

Oh yes and we can’t forget the free surprise gift! The Green tea facial blotting papers that I am dying to try!

What’s in the box Wednesday : Julep Maven June box

I’ve always loved the Idea of these monthly box subscriptions. As a product junkie you always want to try everything you can and the price is usually really worth it! So I was only subscribed to ipsy.com and now I am a julep maven!
I’ve always loved julep nail polish. I just couldn’t gather myself to pay $14 per polish. But with their subscription service you get 3 julep items be it skincare, haircare or nail polish all for $19.99 per month with free shipping!

I got my first box for free as a first timer ! It included two free gifts and my “it girl” nail polishes. 3 nail polishes all pictured below. Since I began subscribing late June this is the June box.

It comes packaged really cute bubble wrapped to ensure safe travels. And it usually has an insert which describes the inspiration for the months choices!

For $19.99 I think it’s totally worth it because for 3 julep polishes alone it would cost you $42 dollars!

Tight Wallet Tuesday: Sally Hansen Fuzzy coat

  I was absolutely in love with Nails Inc London Feathers nail polish collection. But, I couldn’t gather myself to pay $9.50 per color although they were uber cute! For one I have tons of nail polish and two I would need all 4 shades! I couldn’t decide! So In other words I would be out of about $40 after taxes!

Image

But to my surprise Sally Hansen launched her identical nail polish top coats! Called Fuzzy Coat. She launched a total of 6 or 7 colors. I bought them on sale at Target for $4.50 each. Which means I got 3 for a little more than $13.00 with tax! Here is the 3 colors I bought!

Image

So if you’re like me and have been loving the Nails Inc Feather collection look check out your local target or CVS and get your fuzzy coat by Sally Hansen. No more than $6 retail price! If you’re lucky you’ll catch a break like I did.

Fine finger Friday! I’m kind of loving this duo I did today. It’s a pale pink and a nice holographic glitter top coat from sephora by opi! I wish I had the names of these two colors but they were part of the tinsel town collection! It came with approximately 12 mini nail polishes and a large size gold glitter top coat right around the Christmas season!
It’s a super cute classy and chic combo good for everyday ! and it even screams bridal!

What do you guys think of this combo?

Fine Finger Friday: It’s My Party! by Morgan Taylor!

Fine finger friday is back and I did some more exploring with the Morgan Taylor line! I absolutely loved the staying power I got from the last time, the shine stayed and the color was absolutely gorgeous and perfect for everyday!

Today’s color choice is called it’s a party! It definitely screams party! It is a multicolored glittered polish that looks like it has flecks of pink, teal, silver and purple! It’s super gorg and a must have! I only put it on one nail because Morgan Taylor’s glitter polish is no joke when it comes to removal!

Image

It’s a super pretty glitter and can be combined with any nail color combo. Today I decided to rock it with a baby pink by China glaze unfortunately the name came off the bottle so I am unable to provide you with the info!

Here is the finished product!Image

Has anyone tried the Morgan Taylor Polishes yet?

Fine finger Friday: Morgan taylor

Okay so first of all its not friday! But with mothers day and my daughters birthday party i didnt get the chance to post this!
So we all know that I can never go to any store and just get what I went In for! Last week I strolled into cosmoprof to buy the boyfriend some shampoo and came across Morgan Taylor nail polishes! I originally went to the aisle with nail polish to pick up a new gelish polish and saw this line. The manager told me they just started stocking it and i fell in love! So I picked up this color called “on the fringe”. It’s a nice charcoal grey and one coat has amazing color and coverage with great shine ! Here is what the color looks like on

Really nice nail polish line! Cannot wait to try the others! I’m not sure who else sells this besides cosmoprof but I’m sure we can google it and find them! Great colors!

Until the next fine finger Friday!
