I realize that I’m behind on newer makeup stuff but I buy stuff when I find them at TJ Maxx, Ulta, or Sephora. This palette I found at TJ Maxx, and I was so happy to find a great eyeshadow palette with brighter colors. How about some product photos?

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Pastel nail polishes swatches + review

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Yellow Pastel, 2 coats
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Coral Pastel, 2 coats
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Mint Pastel, 2 coats

All of these pretty much had the same formula, not too streaky but not the best either. YMMV.

Do you ever type or write a word so much that it looks like you’re spelling it wrong even though you know you’re not? Yeah, that’s how I feel with the word “pastel” right now. 😀 At any rate, I picked these three up from my local Hot Topic a few months ago and I finally got around to swatching them! You might remember the Mint Pastel from my polka dots and roses nail art  last month.

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Yellow Pastel | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Yellow Pastel, 2 coats

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Coral Pastel | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Coral Pastel, 2 coats

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Mint Pastel | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Mint Pastel, 2 coats
You may think this looks similar to Sinful Colors State-mint from a few days ago, but this is definitely green, and not a Tiffany minty color like State-mint.

Can you tell I’m ready for spring?! Seriously, more snow this weekend too. I looked on my Facebook memories from 4 years ago, and my kids were wearing shorts and light windbreaker jackets. I’m jealous of past me. Oh wait…I was pregnant 4 years ago. Nope, I’ll take snow over being pregnant. 😛

Continuing on our journey of new Sinful Colors nail polishes, I had picked up 3 of the Sinful Mattes at first and swatched them on my staycation. Then afterwards, looking for other polishes, I just decided I had to get 3 more. 😀  Continue reading

Nuance by Salma Hayek nail polishes in Dark Earth and Desert Sand swatches + review

Gift buttonPolishes used:
Nuance by Salma Hayek Desert Sand
Nuance by Salma Hayek Dark Earth

These two polishes were gifts to me from Vicki (among others!) and I’m so grateful for them! I’ve never tried this polish line out but I know I’m going to be looking to buy some now.

Nuance Salma Hayek Desert Sand holographic | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Desert Sand, 3 coats. Unfortunately, this was super sheer, even at 3 coats. It’s surprising to see some holo from a more mainstream brand, I just wish it had a bit more punch.

Nuance Salma Hayek Dark Earth | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Nuance Salma Hayek Dark Earth sunlight | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Dark Earth, 2 coats. The formula on this was a bit thin, but it covered well in 2 coats.

Usually I don’t wear essie much because as much as I love the polish and finishes, for some reason it will just peel off my nails. And sure enough, I had this manicure on for about 24 hours and it just started peeling off. Ugh!
