Oh no!

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted on here in a while. I just started a new job and I am sooo beyond tired by the time I get home I just usually go straight to bed for a nap and forget the world! I was just updating everyone to let you know I haven't forgotten this blog! Hopefully I'll have a new post up this weekend or maybe sooner if I get some free time. Thank you for looking at my blog, it means so much to me! <3

Revlon Mon Cherry

This is the other polish I bought yesterday along with the Revlon Not So Blueberry.  This polish is so much easier to apply and dries a LOT quicker than Not So Blueberry.  I really like this polish, the scent reminds me of the summers when I was a kid eating a cherry popsicle!

The scent is...well... LIKE A CHERRY POPSICLE! It's not overwhelming, but it is there.  I'm sure I looked crazy all day walking around smelling my nails!  I've had this on for around 7 hours and the scent is still there.  I used two coats and no top coat.  The color is just a basic cherry red, but I'm sure you could add a glitter topcoat or something to liven it up.  I just wanted to keep the scent, so I didn't put a topcoat.

The top picture was taken in the shade outside, sorry they look messy or not the best. I've been having to bottle feed 3 tiny kittens since their mother abandoned them and they can get a little rowdy at feeding time! LOL! So my nails are scratched a little.

The bottom picture was taken in the sunlight outside.

These polishes can be found in most drugstores.

Revlon- Not So Blueberry

So I picked up this polish along with the Mon Cherry scented one (I will swatch it soon!).

This color is a bit of a lavender with a silver shimmer.  I was going by scents when picking these out, but since I saw how pretty this color was, I just picked this one!  I applied two coats and I found that it took FOR-EV-ER to dry. As you can see in the pictures, I messed up my polish a little bit trying to get my camera out the bag even though I had been wearing it for about 10 minutes. It finally dried about 10 minutes later just by letting them "air dry".

I found that this smelled like a mixture of blueberry and grape.  It's a nice scent and isn't too overwhelming.  I didn't apply a top coat since I will probably be taking this off soon to try on the other!

You can find this in stores everywhere along with many more colors and scents!

French Nails

So, I'm going out job searching again tomorrow, so I figured I would do my nails nicely instead of blue or some other color.

I did my own nails with french tips.  I just use regular nail polish, no special brushes or polishes.  I believe you can buy both these colors at Wal-Mart or just buy any french nail kit or just separate colors! Here's what I came up with.

Obviously the tips aren't the best, but you don't really notice unless you look closely.  At least that's what I think!

I used CQ: 416 French Pink for the base and used a Sally Hansen white polish.  And always use China Glaze Fast Foward Top Coat.
