♥China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy - This is actually a color from the Summer 2010 Poolside Collection, but I only discovered it in June of this year, and I have been obsessed with it ever since. This is a really unique but fun color – especially for the warmer months. It is a super bright neon coral / pink with orange undertones. Usually I use a nail color once and then don’t use it again for over a year or something; but this color I have used for manicures multiple times over the past month alone, and right now I have it as my pedicure color. It’s definitely a must-have if you’re looking for something bright and playful.
♥Hard Candy Glamazon Glow All the Way Face & Body Luminizer, Bronze 318 - I mentioned this product back in May as part of my 365 Beauty Guide: 6 Essentials Your Makeup Bag May Be Missing; but it has now become a part of my daily skin/beauty routine. I don’t use this as a bronzer; rather, I use it as a body shimmer by mixing it with my sunscreen each day, and putting it all over m legs and arms for a subtle sparkle. This stuff is incredible in that you need hardly any for results (I use half a dime-size on each leg), so it’s long-lasting. The only downside is that it does transfer to clothing if you don’t give it at least 15 minutes to dry; so definitely remember that if you use it.
♥JULEP Essential Cuticle Oil - As you can probably tell from my Nail Talk posts, I change my nail color a lot, so I’m constantly using acetone nail polish remover, which really damages my cuticles, and leaves my nails dry. This is the first product (and I have tried A LOT) that I have found that truly hydrates my nails, and keeps my cuticles in good shape regardless of how harsh I am with my nails. What I love about this product is that you can use it daily, and it has a roller-ball applicator, so it’s really simple to use even when you’re on the go. Plus it has a eucalyptus type of scent to it which I find soothing. Don’t be intimidated by the small bottle. I use this product multiple times a day, and I have barely made a dent in the bottle, so it’s definitely worth the $18.00 that it retails for ($14.40 if you’re a Julep Maven).
♥mark Gloss On Lip Gloss in Sunset Beach - I have this product in two colors – Sand and Sunset Beach. I’m very into the dark eye / nude lip look, so I thought that I would prefer the Sand color (which is nude), over the Sunset Beach shade (which is a pale coral), but the opposite was true. Sunset Beach has become my go-to color all summer long because it doesn’t so much leave a color on your lips (the way a lipstick would), but, instead, takes your natural lip color and enhances it – which I love. Not to mention that it is really long-lasting, even when you’re drinking or eating (I rarely have to reapply); and it’s not sticky at all. If you’re looking for a neutral lip gloss, this is highly, highly, HIGHLY recommended. I love it!
♥SEPHORA COLLECTION Crystal Nail File in Pink - I have always been slightly intimidated by nail files, so I’ve never used them before; but last month I wanted to start shaping my nails into a square/round look, so I picked up a few nail files to see which one would work the best. This SEPHORA COLLECTION Crystal Nail File was my favorite out of all of them, because it produces the best results in the quickest amount of time. I also liked the fact that, as a novice, it was really easy to use right off the bat. Compared to a standard emery board, I found that the Crystal works better at sealing edges, and preventing snags – so this is my new love when I give myself manicures. Also…PINK!!
