Ruby Kisses HD Nail Polish in She A Goldigger




I was recently given the chance to review several products from Ruby Kisses Cosmetics, and this is one of the ones that stuck out to me when I first opened the package. This nail polish is what I would consider a true yellow gold. It also has some gold shimmer, which I am not sure if it will show up in pictures or not. The brush is very different that would you would expect to see. It is one of those wider ones like what Sally Hansen uses in their Insta-Dri line but it doesn't have the rounded tip. It is just cut straight across to make it easy to cover the nail in just one stroke. I found that this nail polish has pretty good wear, but I would definitely suggest a base/top coat combination as well.  Ruby Kisses carries a lot of products in a very wide range that are affordable so I would highly suggest checking them out. They are sold at a lot of beauty supply stores, but I don't have any near me that do so you can also check online retailers or even Ebay. Ruby Kisses was kind enough to send me some extra products for a giveaway so definitely stay tuned for that.

Tuff Scent Nail Polish in Hope

I am obsessed with neutral nail polishes. It is what most of my collection consists of. This particular one is by Tuff Scent it is from their "Earth Collection". I was sent this shade and one other by Tuff Scent to review. First off I absolutely love this color. It is super pigmented and applies very nicely. It only took two coats to get the opaqueness in the picture above. I would describe the color as a slate gray with multi colored shimmer. These retail for $14.00 and can be found on their website. They have a decent selection of colors and each has a specific scent. The scent releases as the nail polish dries, and you can even smell it if you apply a top coat. The scent is not too overpowering either, which is nice. I wore this nail polish for about three days and didn't have any problems with chipping, but I did use Orly Bonder as a base coat and Seche Vite for a top coat. I absolutely love these nail polishes but I would only purchase them as a special treat to myself once in a while since they are pretty expensive.

    Misa Hip To My Jive Collection

    Peachy Keen: You don’t have to be a square to appreciate the necessity of perfectly polished nails. This champagne-hued taupe is a flattering neutral that’ll go with everything in your closet, from full skirts to sweetheart sweaters. Take this shade from the office to after-hours—it’s guaranteed to make a soft, feminine statement.

    Go for the Pinks: Thinking pink? Throw your hair into a ponytail and put on your girliest nail color. Perfect for going steady—or meeting the parents!—this muted but statement-making matte rose lends a girly-girl flair with an irresistible high-gloss finish. 

    Pop the Clutch: Nothing’s more liberating than grabbing the keys and taking a ride on the boulevard—except perhaps this rosy brown hue with a hint of iridescence. Put the top down, slide the key in the ignition, crank up the tunes, and tap out your favorite rock-and-roll beats on the steering wheel with perfectly polished nails.

    Bop Till You Drop: Go ahead, stay out all night; this vibrant shade will ensure that your nails make a statement from early evening into the wee hours. One warning, though: This shimmering orangey coral will definitely outlast any partner you can find down at the dance hall.

    Catch a Flick: Getting swept away in your favorite Hollywood plots at the drive-in is a perfect pastime, but you’ll want to keep your nails firmly rooted in reality. Just try to tear your eyes away from this cool mint green to watch the movie!

    Got It Made in the Shade: Whether in the heat of an Indian summer or lounging as the leaves turn for autumn, this fall, make sure you’ve got nail color that’s laid-back yet oh-so-hip. Perfect for hanging with the greasers or dancing at the sock hop, this unique olive green will keep your nails cool—and hot—all season long.



    This collection was released August 15th!

    ShoeClips.biz Review


    I received a pair of the Chiffon Flower Shoe Clips in White with Black Dots from ShoeClips.biz. This particular pair retails for $14.00 USD. They have a huge variety of different designs and colors. They range in price from $6.00 USD to $39.00 USD and up. Of course the pricier ones are made with suede, feathers or Swarovski crystals. They even offer a pair made from Mink fur. I absolute love the idea of shoe clips and was so happy to be given the chance to try them out. There are so many different ways to wear these. I wear them as pictured on my flip flops. Its a great way to dress up everyday shoes to make them dressier. You could also attach them to a belt, boots, pumps, or on the back of a pair of pumps. Just use your imagination! 

    They are very easy to use. On the back there is a metal hinged clip, and all you have to do is open it then snap it shut once you have it where you want it on your shoes. These won't slip off because the clips have gripping prongs that will make them stay. Don't worry they wont damage your shoes. Each pair also includes a piece of adhesive padding that can be attached to the underside where it is touching your foot. I found that I didn't even need to use it, but its nice that they include this.

    There will be a giveaway for the same pair that I received coming up soon, so STAY TUNED!

    NOTD: Funky Crackle Manicure


    Just a quick post on my NOTD. This is L.A. Colors Color Craze in Treasure Island with Sally Hansen's Crackle Overcoat in Vintage Violet. I absolutely love crackle manicures right now. Since it is summertime I have been having fun with bright colors. One of my favorite color combinations is teal and purple.

    Claire's Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Mother Nature


    This trio retails for $4.00 USD or $4.50 CAD. I bought this while they had a buy one get one half off sale, so I got it for even cheaper. If you can still find this I highly suggest it.

    The top shade is a copper toned bronze, the midde shade is more of a true golden bronze and the bottom shade is a teal with golden duo chrome. These shadows are very pigmented. In the swatches, that is just one swipe. This would be a great trio to take for travel, because you could do a neutral eye and add a pop of color if you wanted. I use the neutral shades for my lids and under my lower lash line I will use the teal shade.

    Wet N Wild Wild Shine in Sparked


    1 Coat
    This a super pretty pink glitter with some silver glitter in it as well. There is definitely more pink as you can tell.  This retails for only $0.99!!! How can you go wrong?!? This is a great glitter for underneath crackle polishes, especially black. It would be nice on top of a pink nail polish too. I've even used it to do a "glitter nail" and paint the rest of my nails another color. I can get away with one coat, but I usually do two just so it would be ever more opaque. This is pretty close to OPI Teenage Dream from the Katy Perry collection. I wouldn't call it an exact dupe, but its definitely close.

    Barielle Jess' Champagne Toast


    This polish is absolute GORGEOUS. This was part of their 2010 Holiday Hustle collection. I just picked it up recently when they had two days where if you ordered you would get free shipping. On top of that the nail polishes were buy 1 get 1 half off. So for two nail polishes it cost me $12.00 USD. I thought that was a great deal. The polishes normally retail for $8.00 USD a piece. Barielle describes it as a "Metallic violet with rose gold glitter."  I definitely agree on the lavender/violet part but not on the color of the glitter. The micro-glitter in this is pink and blue. None the less, this is still a very unique color. The glitter almost "sinks" to the bottom so you don't see it as much as I would like.

    BeneFit Coralista Boxed Blush



    I have been wanting this blush for so long. I was on the fence about purchasing it because I just couldn't justify the $28.00, but I finally broke down and got it. Being that it was so expensive and that I could almost get two MAC blushes for just a little more, I had very high hopes for this blush. Look how gorgeous it is.....


    Unfortunately Coralista just did not work out for me. It looked great when I swatched it on my hands at Sephora, but when I applied it on my cheeks it was too sheer. I even tried building it up and it still did not work. I wanted to like this blush more than anything. :(

    N.Y.C. Smooth Mineral Loose Blush in Pearl Mocha





    I have been obsessed with loose powder blushes lately. I happened to get this one at Dollar Tree. I am so glad that I decided to give this a chance. This was the only shade I could find, but I LOVE it!! It is named Pearl Mocha, but it does not seem very "Mocha" to me. It seems live a mauve with some peachy undertones. You will need to have a light hand when using this, because it is very pigmented. A little goes a long way with this blush! This blush is definitely shimmery, so I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like shimmer blushes. I also have been using just a touch of this over another blush to add some shimmer. If you can still find this in stores I would suggest picking it up. You would probably be able to find it on Ebay or Amazon.

    Made From Earth Lip Balm Review

    Made From Earth strives to provide "Organic, holistic and chemical free" products. They carry skin care, hair care, and body care products along with their lip balms.


    I don't know how anyone else feels, but I absolutely cannot stand it if I have dry lips. I have one if not more lip balms/chapsticks on me at all times. At this exact moment, there are at least three at the bottom of my purse. I was lucky enough to be sent two of these lip balms (Vanilla and Citrus Fresh) along with a few other products to review. I am obsessed with anything vanilla, therefore I would have to say that the vanilla one is my favorite. I keep one in my purse and one on my nightstand. I love these lip balms from Made From Earth. The best thing about them, other than the fact that they leave my lips moisturized, is that they are organic. The only downside about these products is that they are not very widely available. That said, when these two are gone I will definitely be purchasing more.


    Vanilla Lip Balm Ingredients:
    • Organic Sunflower Oil
    • Organic Beeswax
    • Organic Jojoba Oil
    • Organic Vanilla Essential Oil
    • Vitamin E
    • Rosemary Extract
    • Organic Calendula

    • Organic Sunflower Oil
    • Organic Beeswax
    • Organic Jojoba Oil
    • Organic Essential Oils of Orange, Lemon and Lime
    • Vitamin E
    • Rosemary Extract
    • Organic Calendula

    These lip balms retail for $3.99 USD and can be purchased on their website. They do offer as well a two pack of lip balms in "Ice Cream" scent/flavor for $5.00 USD.


    There will be a giveaway coming up so stay tuned!
