Nail of the Day: Wet n Wild Through the Grapevine

I really like this shade of nail polish! Today’s Nail of the Day is Through the Grapevine by Wet n Wild. It is a true magenta that would look great on all skintones. Not only is the color gorgeous, but these polishes are a breeze to work with. I have tried several shades and they all are pretty opaque and apply easily. Also, they come with a wide brush that makes it quicker to polish the nails. My only complaint is that the bottles break easily when dropped. I have broken at least 2 of these. For me, that isn’t a huge complaint since these polishes cost less than $3.

Have you tried any of the Wet n’ Wild Megalast polishes? What are your favorite shades?

Nail of the Day: Loreal The Perfect Trench & Butter London West End Wonderland

Today’s nail of the day post features 2 polishes; The Perfect Trench by Loreal and West End Wonderland by Butter London.

The Perfect Trench is the perfect mustard yellow. Mustard is one of those colors that most people don’t think about when it comes to nail polish, but I personally love it. It is subdued enough to be considered a neutral, but it still adds a little excitement to the nails. Also, this shade reminds me of Fall. This shade did go on slightly streaky, but it leveled itself out with the second coat.

West End Wonderland is the glittery goodness that I used on my other nails and I really like this one as well. I was able to get relative opaqueness using 2 coats, which is pretty good for a glitter polish. Butter London nail polishes are pretty expensive, but I got a great deal on this one (and 2 others) on a new site called coterie.com that features flash sales.

Overall, I was very happy with the way my nails turned out and I would definitely recommend both of these shades.

Are you willing to give mustard colored nails a try? What shades are you excited about for Fall?

Pumpkin Spice Latte Makeup Tutorial

It  is officially Fall, but according to the weather in my area, you can’t tell. The reason that I know it is definitely Fall, is because the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is back! I love these drinks! I’m not even a huge fan of pumpkin in general, but this drink is amazing! If you haven’t tried it, make sure to!

Because of my excitement for the return of the Pumpkin Spice, I was inspired to do a makeup look based on the beautiful colors. Keep reading for more pictures and a video showing you how I accomplished this look!

Nail of the Day: China Glaze Kalahari Kiss

It’s been awhile since my last post, sorry about that! I’ve had some things going on in my personal life that made me not feel like blogging, but I’m back now! I decided to ease my way into things with a Nail of the Day post. Today’s nail polish is Kalahari Kiss by China Glaze. It is limited edition and came out with one of their fall lines. At this time, it is still available in stores.

In my opinion, this is a very unique shade. At first glance it might look like just another nude, but in different lights, it looks different. It tends to lean olive greeen or mustard yellow, I can’t decide which one more. The formula of this shade was very nice, not thick or thin. Sometimes I find China Glaze polishes to be slightly thick, but this one was perfect. The color was also relatively opaque and I used 2 coats. Overall, I do like the polish, but it is not my favorite. The shade is just a little strange. I do think it would make a great base for a gold or silver glitter top coat and it also is a nice fall nude.

What do you think of this shade? Do you have a go-to nude polish for fall?
