Project Polish Intro

I have decided to do a project polish this year in the attempt to use up my huge nail polish collection, which I will have updated photos of that coming soon. I have 5 polishes in my project and this will be a rolling project. So, as I use up a polish, I will replace it with something similar in the color family or what makes sense seasonally. If anyone else is doing this project, please leave a link to your blog below. I’d love to follow!

project

These are my polishes in my project pan. I have a L’Oreal glitter, three Julep ones, and a Sally Hansen. The baby lavender is good for the Winter and Spring. The bright texture pink polish is good for Spring and Summer. The orange and navy are great Fall colors and who doesn’t love a good glitter?! I have been loving the pampering Monday nights of painting my nails, which I have done three times now. If I can remember to take pics, I will show you on Mondays. 🙂

L’Oreal Glitter Polish in 605 Sparklicious

My plans for this polish is to use it up. It will probably take me to the end of the year to do so, but I want to see how it looks as a polish on its own. Maybe, this won’t take too long to finish that way. It is 0.39 fl oz, which is 0.11 fl oz less than a standard bottle. Maybe, I can finish it off!

Julep Nail Color in 2086 Bombshell Gloria

These have almost half the amount of a full size at 0.27 fl oz. I feel like that this going to be a favorite summer color. I don’t own too many oranges, but it is a color that I want to wear more off. I like it better than red and gives me a break from pink.

Julep Nail Color in 2282 American Beauty Amy

I’m going to be putting this on all of my fingers Monday with maybe a coat of glitter. This cool navy blue is a good Winter color. I’m gonna prep the nails tonight with some cuticle oil for polish tomorrow night. I had a week off this past week from polish. My nails need to breathe every two to three weeks of constant polish.

Julep Nail Color in 4328 IT Girl Carla

Carla had never been worn before this project. I absolutely love this color now. It is super pretty! I think this will be the first polish to go out of the group. It is very versatile and I am sure that I will be painting them this color soon again for Valentine’s Day. It is an unexpected color. I just wish it pulled more lavender.

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in 700 Cotton Candies

I love a good texture polish and this one does not disappoint. I will be buying thinner, because this was SO THICK when I used it the other week. I want to try to use up every last drop of my gooey nail polishes this year or as much as I can. Sometimes, when you throw thinner in, it still doesn’t work or you ruin the texture part of it.

I will see you all real soon for the February update. This intro post got up SUPER late.

With Love,

Selena

Mini Mall Haul

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I just realized that my post for yesterday did not upload, so I have already uploaded it. Hence, why there is two posts today. Yesterday, I went shopping with my best friend and we went to the mall. She also gave me a few goodies and I gave her some as well. We also ate at Panera Bread. It was my first time eating there and it won’t be my last. Seriously considering reviewing restaurants that I’ve been to now. lol. Any who, this is everything that is new in my life since yesterday.

From Dani:

Opi

OPI Nicole Roughles in Rock The Look, 15 ml

I have already used this and I love it. It is in tomorrow’s Manicure Monday post.

Sally Hansen

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in 700 Cotton Candies, 11.8 ml

I am looking forward to using this in the next coming weeks depending upon how long my current mani lasts. I want to see how this one looks compared to the one above.

cream bath

Simple Beauty Angelic Pink Luxurious Cream Bath, 3.4 fl oz

Dani knows how much I love my baths. I take one almost everyday to relax. It is part of my night time routine. This one smells nice, similar to Avon’s Sweet Honesty with more of a baby powder scent. I will enjoy using this as a bubble bath, when I run out of what I am currently using. If you are wondering, it is a foaming bath oil.

bath fizz

Bath Fizzer

I figured that this is good for two uses. It is something nice to add to your bath, when you don’t want to be covered in bubbles. I’m hoping it is moisturizes or does something. The packaging does not say much, but it is pink and glittery!

stickersstickers

Stickers

I don’t know why the package says glitter, because they actually do not contain any glitter. They are more metallic than glittery. I cannot wait to use this in next week’s spread. I am working on it Monday, so you won’t see the last few weeks of my planner planning, until Saturday or Sunday. No sneaky peeks from me! These will make the grey and purple accents really pop against all the color.

Target:

babybaby

This cute little number has dinosaurs on it, perfect for the growing little boy inside of me. It was only 1.50 USD, which is money well spent.

Marshall’s:

babybaby

I found this at a great discount! It was originally 25 USD and I got it for 3 USD. These are cute for a little boy and I want to have at least 8 onseies like these for him to wear everyday. I currently have 5, so I have at least three more to buy for now. In a few months, that will be a different story. I’ve been buying 0-3 and 3-6 months though for some variety in sizes.

Claire’s:

brushbrushbrush

Claire’s Flat Kabuki, 6.50 USD (6.91 with tax)

I have really wanted a buffing brush for a while for my foundation. Every kabuki that I looked at was either short or too small. This one at Claire’s is a great size for a great price. I am hoping that it performs nice. It feels dense and doesn’t seem like it would shed. Only trying it will tell.

Sephora:

tinted moisturizertinted moisturizerswatchblended swatch

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Nude, 1 fl oz for 21 USD (22.31 with tax)

This blended in beautifully when I swatched it. It is the perfect color for my complexion and it is the fourth darkest color in the line. It surprises me that I take such a dark color, because I’m usually the first one or two in a line. This is a bit yellow toned, which goes with my natural yellow undertone. It should cancel out my ruddy cheeks from pregnancy. I’ve heard a lot about this brand, so hopefully it lives up to the hype.

eye cream

Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched Renewal Cream, 0.5 oz (100 point perk)

I will be using this as an eye cream. I really wanted to try some more from the Origins line, so this was really nice to try. I feel like my eyes can most benefit from this cream. If I like it, I will try the orange line for energizing tired eyes/skin.

sample

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser (sample)

The employee included a small sample of a cleanser from Fresh. I already know that I love their soaps, so it is just natural that I will probably love everything else that they make, too.

Walmart:

Dove

Dove Dry Spray Deodorant in Cooling Cucumber

I needed a new deodorant and knew that I wanted to try this one. I really like it so far, but it isn’t “dry” it definetly adds some moisture to your pits. I air dry mine for 2 to 5 minutes. I usually use that time to wash my face and put on socks.

acne wash

Neutrogena Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub

I needed something for the heat rash on my back and I remembered loving this in high school for the same reason. Pregnancy has made me rashy again and they can turn into big, angry pimples. This has reduced the intensity of my rash and with time, I think it will make it almost disappear. I don’t think it will totally work, because again, hormones. Have you guys hauled anything lately?

With Love,

Selena

Mini Kmart Haul

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

As promised, I have a little haul for you. It is only two items so it is very mini. I had already gone to Walmart, so I only really needed two items. My Walmart didn’t have the two items that I was looking for. I only paid 10.19 USD for this 20 USD order.

Bath oilbath oil

Village Naturals Therapy Cold & Allergy Relief Foaming Bath Oil & Body Wash: This was originally 5.99 USD, but I only paid 4 USD. I will be using this as a bath oil. My body needs some added moisture and my dad loves bath oils for his ultra dry skin. It is brown with a medicinal scent. I like how it claims to help allergies, since I have allergies. I’m hoping that this will be very relaxing and moisturizing. It is supposed to make bubbles, so if it does, that would be a plus. I’m guessing that I will get 30 baths out of this since you don’t need very much to make the water silky.

Sally Hansen

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs in Light: This was 13.99 USD and I had a 2 USD off coupon. I also used 7 dollars in points, which basically made this 6 USD. I received the coupon with compliments from Influenster. If you would like your own coupon, please follow me on twitter to find the coupon code ink. I cannot wait to use this to perfect my legs and arms when wearing nice dresses or skirts. I also plan on spending the day at the ocean in August, so this will come in handy. Hopefully it works as well as Youtube gurus say!

With Love,

Selena

Empties: The July Edition

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

Another month and flown past us. I cannot believe we are already in August and almost at the end of summer. I haven’t even gone to the beach, yet! I am going this coming Sunday to a beach in Rhode Island with my dogs. I have to find out the name of the beach from my friend, so I know where to go. My dogs deserve an outing and this may be the first and last time that I can go to the beach this summer, if I get the job that I am going to an interview Tuesday for. It is a job at an insurance company and I am really excited for it. I know that I’ll get it and I’ll be able to quit my Kmart and Macy’s job. I’m really starting to hate my Kmart job. There are just so many problems there for me now and I am just looking for an out.

That is it for my empties in July. A few pictures were lost due to my camera dying on me in that month. I am hoping to continue frequently posting in August as well. My next big blogging event is Octoberfest, where I blog everyday  in October and I am brainstorming on different things that I could do to incorporate the season. The next event I have planned after that is 25 Days Until Christmas, where I post every day with little ideas for Christmas or Christmas themed posts. I don’t really have any events for Spring I mostly just have a Summer, Fall, and Winter events on my blog. Would you like me to do a Spring Event? Maybe a February one for Valentines Day? Let me know in the comment section below. Love you guys!
