DRK Nails at Psyche's Beau Swatches and Review Part 1

I'm excited to share a brand with you that I have been watching for a long time! DRK Nails is a Brazilian brand that specializes in mega-flashy effect pigments, like ultra holos and multichromes and the polishes more than met my expectations when they arrived! I purchased mine from Psyche's Beau, a new indie e-tailer and was so excited to see the first American indie shop offer them! The shop has a wonderful, easy to use interface, shipping is lightning fast, and beautifully packed. I have a ton to share with you from my first order, so get buckled in.

Blush Lacquers 1929 Collection Swatches and Review Part 1

It's hard to believe, but Blush Lacquers will be two this year! The brand came out with bang and the highest quality, interesting finishes and I have collected Victoria's polish ever since. Today I have an upcoming collection to share with you that is absolutely perfect for me! The 1929 Collection is inspired by all things 20s, and as a museum curator I love that. Not only that, I live in a bungalow built in 1929 I restored that had some of the same color schemes in this collection originally! How cool is that?

Celestial Cosmetics Back to the 80s Collection Swatches and Review Part 2

Celestial Cosmetics Back to the 80s Collection Swatches and Review Part 1

Celestial Cosmetics has completed her big move and is back to producing amazing collections. 2018 off with a bang - the Back to the 80s Collection is HANDS DOWN the best neon holo collection I have ever tried. There are eight shades total, and I have the first four to show you today. Neons are notoriously difficult to do in holo finishes because the neon pigment dulls holo, and holo makes warm colors in particular gray out or look muddy. I don't know how Nicki did it, but these have zero issues and are completely amazing. Let's have a look!

Smile Brilliant Teeth Whitening System Review

It's been a good long while since I've had white teeth and I admit, I had gotten a bit self-conscious about it. I consume at least two liters of tea per day and have done so for the last 25 years with no serious attempts at counteracting the staining and at nearly 40, it has added up. I do use whitening toothpaste, but I simply have not been willing to smile with my teeth showing in up close pictures. I had been kind of casually thinking I should do something about it, but I wasn't interested in going to the dentist and forking out a ton of money for a cosmetic problem. When I had the opportunity to try Smile Brilliant to review for the blog, I was really excited to see what the results might be. The downside is that I have super sensitive teeth and fragile gums so I made a great guinea pig for those of you with the same issues. I tested this system over several months and I really think it can work for those of us with habits that stain our teeth AND extreme sensitivity. Let's have a look!
