Sinful Colors Sapphired Up

I ended up at Walgreens last night at 10:30 because I forgot to pick up a prescription (UGH) Anyways, I went past the Sinful Colors nail polish display and I fell in love with the beautiful Sinful Colors in Sapphired Up which is part of their new Winter Holiday polishes I mentioned before. It is a gorgeous sparkly blue that is kind of like the liquid sand texture. I also used 2012's OPI in Swimsuit Nailed It which is a beautiful sparkly blue to go with it since the colors are pretty much the same. Here's a picture of them. OPI on the left and Sinful Colors on the right.
I put on one coat of the OPI because it was really thick and didn't need anymore than that. Then, I followed up with one coat of the Sinful Colors. Such a gorgeous blue. The picture doesn't do it justice but here it is ;)
My nails are so much brighter in person too. I love this color, it's going to be added to one of my favorites I'm sure lol OPI ranges for about $8 a bottle and I had that one already. If you want to get a similair color I suggest Wet n Wilds Blue Visionary which retails at $1.99. What colors are you interested in buying from the collection?

Garnier Nutrisse Foam Hair Color in Medium Brown

I have recently only been using foam hair dye because it makes less mess for me and doesn't smell as strong of ammonia as the others. We have been in a fiannacial bind so I decided to find something that was on sale. I found Garnier Nutrisse at CVS for $6.99 so why not give it a shot? Here is the box and what comes in it...
It sits on for about 25 minutes and like the usual hair dyes you rinse it out and wash with the color conditioner that comes in the box. Here are my end results!
I think it came out great! I have a few grays which it did cover and I'm hoping the results last a bit. I'll keep you updated :)

Jordana Twist and Shine Lip Stain~Cranberry Crush

I went out to Walgreens and bought the new Jordana Twist and Shine Lip Stain in Cranberry Crush.
Pic credit to It retails at 2.99 and it's amazing! I didn't even use a lip liner which is always a plus. It goes on nice and smooth and even smells like Cranberries! It puts you in that festive mood ;)

Sinful Colors Tinseltown

Isn't it pretty?!!! Think of Sally Hansen's Fuzzy coat nail polish, the textured ones, that's what this one is like. They are little sticks of glitter with a clear polish mixed in. This one is textured glitter in purple and blue. I bought this at Walgreens for $1.99 and sometimes they will have deals on them 2 for $3 or 99 cents each. I painted my toes with it and the reason being is my nail polish lasts longer on them so I tend to do my toes less often. Here's a picture...
I really did like this because I am all crazy over these textured nail polishes! I bought the China Glaze Snow one like you and can't wait to use that one lol The only thing I didn't like was applying 4-5 coats to make it look like the above picture. The thing is with these is that they don't have to be perfect because they are scattered glitter. I think next time I will pick a plain blue or purple polish to put on first then add a coat of this. Any other colors of these you'd like to try?

Rimmel London's Scandal Mascara

I received Rimmel London's Scandal Eyes mascara in black form the Influenster RoseVoxBox. The wand is shaped diferenetly than most mascaras. It is small at the tip, then get's bigger as you can see in the picture below.
This is great to me for getting those tiny lashes that are closer to your nose. The color is a deep black and I love that as well, ofcourse I only use black mascara. They run around $7 and if you go to Walgreens this week you can buy one get one half off, so go and try a different kind! I highly recommend this mascara :)

Walgreens Christmas Goodies!

I went to Walgreens today to pick up my prescription and as I thought, they were clearancing (is that a word?)out thier Halloween stuff and putting up Christmas things. Well, I hit the Mother load! Unfortunatley I am so broke at the moment but hoping next week I'll have some cash to pick up some of these new beauty items. First up, I came across the Sinful Colors nail polish display.
Nouveaucheap has a run down of them all on their blog so go check it out. I really want some of the textured ones so when I get them I'll post a review asap! Moving on... I also found the Wet n Wild Fergie Holiday display
They have mascaras, eyeshadow palettes, eyelashes, brushes etc etc lol I love Wet n Wild so I definiteley will be purchasing some of these as well. You cannot go wrong with Wet n Wild eyeshadows and I know I say it a lot but it is true. Very cheap but amazing pigmentation! Last but sure not least is the E.L.F. goodies!
I have 3, 32 piece eyeshadow palettes of E.L.F. and the pigmentation is amazing on those as well. Pictured above are eyeshadow palettes, blushes, nail polish etc. It does look like they have more coming in stock too. I am pretty disappointed though because I ddin't see any of the Disney Villians makeup that they had out for Halloween. I was hoping to find them on a good sale and grab up some Ursula ones but nope, didn't see any :( Anyway, go check out Walgrens and pick up some of these asap and remember to look for deals! Sign up at for a sneak peek of the upcoming weekly ads :)
