Product Review: Sinful Shine Nail Polish

So a couple of posts ago I told you guys about the new Sinful Shine collection and was excited to try it. I finally found the time to go to my local Walgreens and picked up Sinful Shine in Sailor’s Delight. I gotta have my pink!

The results? It was indeed very shiny, but nothing crazy like I had expected. I think they did such a great job with their marketing that I expected more than what they could deliver. But still, it definitely has a high shine and looked fresh for a week. It also chips off pretty well, which means it is easy to remove if you’re a nail chipper (which I am!). A quick warning: You must apply three full coats for the color to reach its maximum color potential. As for the shade Sailor’s Delight, I prefer a more pale pink and this was a little too bright for me. It looks great in pictures, but in person it’s a bit too much. However, it is still very worthy of its price, and I may try another shade when I get the chance.

Sinful Shine nail polish can be found at Walgreens for $2.99 a bottle. Happy shining!

Product Review: The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ

With summer coming up, I desperately wanted to get my pout sun-kissed ready. After a recent trip to Henri Bendel, I found The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ, which is the ultimate lip scrub (in my eyes at least). It comes in cute packaging (a box wrapped with a bow) and several different scents/colors. After two seconds of debating, I went with the Sparkling Pink Grapefruit (surprise, surprise). I knew anything pink would smell great!

After I unwrapped the beautiful packaging it was time for the true test. The lip scrub really did smell like grapefruit, and I could not stop sniffing it. If there was ever a scent I could smell for the rest of my life, I think this might be it. Following the simple directions, I dipped my finger into the scrub and traced circles onto my lips. It felt like I was truly cleansing my dry winter-y lips, as it felt like I was rubbing sea salt on it. I loved the texture of the scrub. After a minute of rubbing the product against my lips, they instantly felt softer and moisturized. I’m an instant gratification person, and I love products that work immediately! Totally worth the splurge. I think I may be addicted.

The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ can be found at Henri Bendel, Amazon, and many other stores for an original price of $24.

Product Review: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Nail Polish

Today I can’t wait to bring to you a really great nail polish I found- the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails nail polish in Hard-core Party #160. This is the best polish because it’s not too opaque or transparent; it’s just the right amount of, well, everything. I found that applying 2-3 coats looks best, with 3 coats reaching its maximum color potential.

I’ve gotten lots of compliments on the color, as it’s such an attractive pink. It’s natural enough for daytime, but is still noticeable at night. If you love pink nails like I do, you definitely have to give this shade a try!

The Sally Hansen Hard As Nails polish can be found in most drugstores for $1.99 (yup, a cheap polish with amazing color and quality, I’ve done it again).

Product Review: Sinful Colors Nail Polish

I have great news today! I have been searching everywhere for the perfect neon pink nail polish, and I think I’ve found it just in time for summer! Neon pink is very rare in drugstores, so by default I picked up the one and only Sinful Colors Professional nail polish #920. And I am so glad I did.

Not only have I found what I’ve been looking for, but it may just be the most convenient nail polish of all time. You can take my word for it because I’m very picky about my polishes, and I’m the type of girl who sizes up every shade the same way I would size up a man for marriage. I mean, nail polish is a huge commitment, as it stays on your fingers for a whole week!

Sinful Solors 920 24-7 006

When I first tried the nail polish, I instantly thought that it was the perfect shade of neon pink. Not too obnoxious, but not boring either. And the best part is that it comes out matte, so it dries almost immediately. So you can go on with the rest of your day carefree.

The really best part? It’s only $1.99 and can be found at Walgreens. So get one for you and a friend!
