Milani Collection

Here is a quick shot of my Milani nail polish collection. I haven't managed to add to many polishes to this collection because they are not all that readily available to me and the local outlet for them is highly overpriced. Still, I have nine bottles of Milani nail polish so I have managed at least a few. LOL

Sally Hansen Insta-Dry: Jumpin Jade

I love a dark green nail polish same as the next but this one is admittedly one of the better. I do not care for the brush in these bottles as much but I can still work with it. Jumpin Jade has a decent formula that was easy to work with but as far as it being a fast dry nail polish well......, I guess not bad but not really that fast. In this swatch I used two coats of polish and no top coat. It has an almost matte finish to it but not quite.

Choosing a Blush Color

When you are trying to choose the best color of blush, match it to the color of your skin after you exercise. This will allow you to choose a color that will look you are naturally blushing. I advise that you take a picture of yourself right after your workout and use it to match your blush.

Zoya Loredana with Hidden Treasures

Lately I seem to have a rather large obsession with using Hidden Treasures by Sally Hansen over everything. This mix is not my favorite of the bunch but still it has potential. Loredana is my first polish by Zoya and I must say I love it. I think I have found another polish brand to add to my collectors list, just what I needed, LOL! This is just one coat of Hidden Treasures over Loredana but I think it is enough. The effect is a little more subtle then I normally like but with this slate color I feel it is appropriate.

Beach Set

I got this cute little set as a free gift with a magazine subscription. Although it is not very big it is a good choice for a quick trip to the pool or local swimming area. There is enough room for the essential items that one may need. I like the extra pouch to keep things that need to stay dry like money or a phone.
