Smith & Cult Polish in Regret The Moon

June 29, 2016
Smith & Cult Regret The Moon

Once the weather starts getting warmer, I love playing around with different nail colors. One of my favorite nail polish brands is Smith & Cult. Their colors are so unique, the formula is amazing, and the color is long lasting. You can never go wrong with white once summer rolls around. Plus wearing white looks so good when your skin is tanned. 

The color above is Regret The Moon and it's a great shade of white (Net A Porter's photos don't quite capture the color). Some white polishes can be super streaky making it hard to apply to the nails. The formula on this polish is so smooth. No streaks or bubbles. Regret The Moon is not such a bright white that ends up looking too heavy. It's the perfect balance and shade. To achieve the opacity above I used two coats.

I'm honestly so obsessed with this brand and would like to build my collection of all their polishes. The packaging is so beautiful, chic, and luxe. I already purchased this seafoam green color from Net A Porter, and I can't wait to try it and upload swatches for you all. And in case you missed it, here is my post on Smith & Cult's Fauntleroy, a delicate lavender. The post is almost reaching 200 views! Thank you for reading! 


Have you tried Smith & Cult polishes before? What's your favorite color to wear in the summertime?

Glossier Balm Dotcom in Rose

June 27, 2016
Glossier Rose Balm Dotcom

As you may already know, Glossier is one of my favorite beauty brands. Their packaging and product marketing is top notch. I love that they're constantly releasing new products, and this rose scented version of their Balm Dotcom is so good.

I'm personally a big fan of their original balm but little by little I am becoming more obsessed with products infused with roses. This rose version smells so delicate and fresh. The smell is almost sweet. I love it because it acts just like the regular balm, but the scent makes the product a lot cooler. Most of the time I use it on my lips (I love how long lasting it is!) but you can apply anywhere you feel needs some moisture. It doesn't leave my lips shiny or sticky and in case you're wondering it doesn't leave a tint or color on your lips.

If you haven't tried Glossier I highly recommend this balm, as well as the rest of the balm dotcom range. I think this is the best product from their entire line.

Bare Bottles: Products I've Finished No. 7

June 26, 2016
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Smooth Conditioner and Mario Badescu Facial Spray

Happy Sunday! Why does the weekend go by so fast?! I haven't had a Bare Bottles post in a little while so below are reviews of two products that I recently finished. Keep reading for mini reviews:

This conditioner worked pretty good, but it does not compare to their original formula, the 3 Minute Miracle Moist Conditioner. I felt like the smooth version wasn't too long lasting. When I use the moist version my hair remains soft for a lot longer. Aussie products are great because they're inexpensive and I definitely recommend their 3 minute deep conditioners, but I would recommend the moist one instead. I did a first impression of this conditioner back in 2014, check it out!

Okay this product is an essential for me. I love using this after I cleanse my face and remove my makeup. Another way that I've been using it is by spritzing some on a sponge that I use to apply my BB cream or foundation. It makes my skin feel hydrated. This facial spray is infused with aloe, herbs, and rosewater. Plus is only $7! It doesn't get much better than that. Click here to read a longer review of this mist.


Stay tuned for more mini reviews on products I've finished. Meanwhile, what beauty product have you just finished and can't wait to repurchase? Let me know in the comments!

Ashley Graham x Formula X Nail Polish in Sexy As Hell

June 5, 2016
Ashley Graham Sexy As Hell Formula X

I am living for this red right now! I've been obsessed with Sephora's limited edition Formula X #ColorCurators collabs, and this recent one with body activist and gorgeous woman Ashley Graham is no exception. Her three-piece polish set includes this stand-out red called appropriately enough, Sexy As Hell, along with an orange coral, and a berry plum.

I decided to go with the red. Red is such a classic color and I know that I'll be wearing this polish no matter the season. The application for this polish was perfect. It has a great consistency and it was long-lasting. I've been pretty impressed with Formula X polishes and I'm currently loving their sleek yet colorful Instagram feed.

There was a past #ColorCurators collab that I never looked into with ballet fitness guru Mary Helen Bowers and luckily her polish range is still available at Sephora.com. I'm digging the Lilac Fairy and Satin Slippers colors. Decisions, decisions, decisions...

What new nail polish have you been loving lately? Check out my post on Song of Style's Formula X #ColorCurators collab.
