The L'oreal Secret is Out: Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser.

  I was chosen to  receive another Influenster Voxbox, I was so surprised, I have been signed up for about 2 years and I have never received one before and then boom 2 in a month! This box was a 2 stage box, first we got a small box with unnamed Loreal samples of the shampoo, conditioner, and the serum. I used those all week long then today a second box with full sized products came! and it was relieved it was Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser!

I loved the smell of all these products, and they made my hair smell just as good. I found the conditioner awesome! super thick and it made my hair very soft, the shampoo was also very good but for my scalp it was a bit rich, I think I will use it a couple times a week because I love what it did for my hair, but I just can't use it everyday. During the testing process I bleached my hair and using I found very small amount of damage and any signs of it dissipated within a few days. I am very excited to have full sized bottles of this stuff to keep using!

Will you be picking up this line to try?

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Sally Hansen #CSMTKO Complete Salon Manicure Overview.

    Hey guys! I got my first ever Influenster Voxbox, it for the Sally Hansen Complete salon Manicure. I have tried MANY different nail polish brands from high end, to low end, to indie, so I think I have tried enough to what I like in a bottle of polish. First let me tell you what they claim and then tell you how I think it stacked up.

They claim: 7 Benefits of a salon manicure in one bottle.
-Base Coat 
-Growth Treatment
-Top Coat
-Chip -Resistant 
-Gel Shine 

While I can't say much to their claims of it being a strengthener or a growth treatment, I can comment on the rest. During my test I didn't use any top or base coat just this polish, I found it went on great, it was jelly formula so it took about 4 coats to get opaque, and it was pretty chip resistant for being all on its own, so that was a plus. One thing I did notice though was that it seemed to never "cure" it was always being dented by everyday tasks, and for that I think when I wear it again I will choose to add a topcoat. My only other gripe was the brush, I know a lot of people like it but for my small nails it was just too big. 

What do you guys think of these polishes, have you tried them?

NOTD: Opi Rumples Wiggins and Girly Bits Hocus Pocus

 So the other day was the Enchanted Polish restock, and when I seen I love you Lilac I knew it had to be mine, but alas I did not get it :( I did get others though, but not that one! So the next day I was thinking to myself I must try and recreate this look, so this was my best go. Opi Rumples Wiggins and Girly Bits Hocus Pocus on top.

The top two where taken in direct sunlight and the bottom one was in the shade, I think I got the look I wanted, is an exact dupe? not really but its the same look. Does that mean I wont buy the Enchanted if I can? Nope! I totally plan it it hahah!

Check out the Enchanted polish here

Illamasqua Raindrops swatches and review

Today I have what I think is a special polish, Illamasqua Raindrops! I know it was very popular in the nail polish community when it was first released a few years ago, but it was LE and hard to find.. Now Illamasqua has brought it back!! I can see why so many people love it. Its is beautiful, subtle and unique.

I would say this is a blue toned gray with small silver/white glass fleck. It is sheer but buildable without any issues, I used 3 coats to get full opacity, the formula was awesome there was no streaking or tugging at the cuticle when I added the next coat and it didn't get thick and gooey after 3 coats.

The only problem is that its only available on the Illamasqua website and the shipping is rather expensive coming from the UK, I bought this in a group buy to save on shipping and I paid about $20 USD, but I think this is very very much worth the 20 dollars, I also bought the LE Pink Raindrops and I should be getting that in a few weeks so keep your eyes open!

So what do you think, are you planning on picking this up? Let me know if you have any questions :)

Valentines Day Nails

Happy almost Valentines Day :) I hope you all have a fantastic day tomorrow whether you are staying in, going out or you kids are your Valentine this year! I my self plan to watch some Dr. Who and cuddle my cats hahah because the bf works every Valentines Day evening :( He's a cook and every year the local firemen "borrow" the restaurant do the waiting and dishes, they pay the cooks but the fireman keep the profits from the evening because they are volunteer its like a charity thing. So being that I'm going to be alone I wanted to have something pretty one my nails but I'm not very good at nail art.. I mean I can to ok on my left hand but to try and do the same on my other is a real pain in the but! So I normally stay away from it and stick to glitter and such which makes it look like I did something, when I really didn't  Today I wanted to try and do something for Valentines so i whipped  this together :) 


Excuse my dry cuticles.. I do not understand how I can have oily skin and cuticles this dry, I use oils and creams on the all the time and they don't get much better then this :(.

I used China Glaze Ruby Pumps and OPI Alpine snow to make the hearts. So did you guys do any Valentines Day nails or did you do anti Vday nails? I'd love to hear about it.
