Shellac - Tinted Love

Recently I took a trip to Ontario to enjoy the fall colored trees.  (We don't have trees up here... sigh.)  Considering the sad state of my nails after my last trip in June, I decided to protect them a bit more this time, so I Shellac-ed them.  When I first purchased the system 2 years ago I used Shellac a lot.  But now I only use it when I know I won't be able to fuss with my nails (Holidays, vacations and other busy times).  It really does last a long time.  It protects my nails, doesn't chip and shines like crazy.  I'm still regretful that I didn't use it back in June.  I just didn't have the time before I left.  Lesson learned... make time!

Nubar Crushed Candy - My Picks

Early this spring, Nubar released the Crushed Candy Collection of 8 matte glitters.   My picks of the collection were Cotton Candy Crush and Strawberry Lemonade.  I'm just getting to wear and enjoy them now!  So many polishes, so little time.  I layered them both over black crème polish.

Formula X for Sephora Exclusive VIB Rouge

Formula X for Sephora has created an exclusive custom shade of polish specifically for Beauty Insiders with Rouge status.  It's called, X(heart)ROUGE and it's the 2014 VIB Rouge Renewal Gift.  I received it last month when my Rouge status was renewed.  
The color isn't anything unique in my opinion.  It's a standard red creme that I've seen many times before.  I guess it's the exclusivity of this polish that makes it special.  I was impressed with the formula.  It had great pigmentation and applied like a dream.
