Sunny's Body Products Hand Care Product & Scent Review

As I started growing my nails out for keeps this summer, I started to realize how important it is to maintain well-kept cuticles and moisturized hands overall. I've tried out a few different brands and was recommended to try out Sunny's Body Products (previously 365 Days of Polish) for its extensive scent options and multiple product lines.

I purchased a sampler pack of five of their hand care products which included a full size cuticle oil, full size intensive cuticle therapy, a full size of the miracle cuticle balm, a mini of their hand scrub, and a mini of their hand butter (previously hand cream) for $17.00. It'd retail for $22.00 if you purchased them all separately. They also have a monthly subscription sampler box available too if you'd like to get a collection each month.

I'll talk about all five products separately along with the corresponding scents.

Colourpop Super Shock Shadows - Swatches and Review

I Purchased This

Today's post is on Colourpop's Super Shock Shadows, which have been getting tons of love from my fellow beauty bloggers due to the pigmented formula and unbelievable price tag (they're only $5.00 each!). I saw swatches of a few of them on Phyrra's blog (feel free to read here) and decided to pick up two colors in Get Lucky and Girly. They're also a local California company so I'm happy to support them (especially since it means I get my order faster!)

These are touted as "long wearing cream eyeshadows with an elastic texture".

Essie Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low Nail Polish - Swatch & Review

Now that Halloween is over, I can start to get into the Christmas spirit. Today's nail polish is from Essie's Winter Collection and wins the prize for having a ridiculous name despite the actual prettiness of the color. It's described as a molten gold but to me it's a silver-gold foil with subtle bronze/gold flecks to break up the monotony. It's a color that will look more silver or more gold depending on the lighting. This was opaque in two coats and easy to apply. I thought it might be streaky due to the metallic finish but thankfully it's not.

The rest of Essie's Winter Collection is forgettable so I'd just recommend picking up just this color.

What's your current manicure color?

Sinful Colors Prosecco Nail Polish - Swatch & Review

This Sinful Colors Nail Polish has been the talk of one of the nail polish groups I've in. I'm such a sucker for anything hyped up so I went searching for it. I finally found it for Rite Aid and it was only $1.99.

Prosecco is a medium grey with a hint of brown/taupe (which reminds me of putty) with a beautiful gold glass fleck shimmer through out. It is a little thin so it took three coats to get opaque though I could have gone for four coats.

Does it live up to the hype? For me it totally does. It might seem like a blah grey/brown with gold shimmer but there's something about the color that makes me think it's more expensive than it actually was. Sinful Colors often goes on sale so you may be able to catch it for only $.99. 

If you find this color in stores, definitely pick it up!
