5 Affordable & Awesome Products 

Hello!

Today I wanted to share with you some of my favourite affordable beauty products. I know full well that makeup and skin care can be budget crushing sometimes when you look to high end products. But the good news is that there are plenty of gems in the isles of the drugstores. I thought I would start a little series where every so often I’ll do a post of five of my personal favourite, budget friendly products. These aren’t my “absolute top five picks” but they are all products that I have loved, would repurchase and would recommend to anyone. So let’s get started with todays five!

Nails ~ Essie w/ Jamberry

Oh, hey there! It’s been a hot minute since my last post! Life these days has been busy, to say the least. Between my hubby working out of town for weeks at a time, kids and their extracurricular activities, the class I’m taking for college, camp on the weekends (with no wifi) and just life in general, blogging has taken a back seat. I miss it though so I’m going to make a major effort to fit it all in.

Today’s post is a quick one, as I have loads of studying to do (boooo!). I recently placed an order for nail wraps from a company called Jamberry. My friend had a party through Facebook and they looked interesting so I gave them a go. I have never tried a nail wrap but I figured now was the time! My order came in and with it was a couple of samples for accent nails. I decided to start with one of those for my first time applying one, so I didn’t ruin a set that I paid for if I applied it wrong.  keep reading…

Nails ~ O•P•I w/ Essie

Hello! How is everyone’s Friday!? Mine? So far, so good!

Last night I decided to give my nails a polish. I was in the mood for something dark with a touch of sparkle. I ended up choosing O•P•I’s Light My Sapphire and a coat of Essie’s Stroke Of Brilliance on my ring fingers. I really like how this turned out! The two blues paired together was pretty and sparkled nicely in the light without looking too “in your face” glittery.  keep reading…

Nails ~ Essie

Hi!

Check out this polish! How pretty!? I felt like painting my nails something dark but I wasn’t in the mood for basic black. I wanted some pizzazz!  I dug through my stash and found this one. It’s Essie’s Frock ‘N Roll. The shade is describes as a rich espresso brown with shimmer. The colour was so dark that it looked black to everyone who’s opinion I asked for. The shade was quite opaque and applied nice and even. I really like this one! keep reading…

Nails ~ L’Oreal

Hi! Today’s post is a quick one! Walmart had a sale on their L’Oreal nail polishes a few weeks ago. I purchased a few and today is the first time I tried any of them. The one I chose today is L’Oreal’s Doutzen’s Nude (600). I would say it’s a dusty mauve based nude. I love a good nude polish and I think everyone should have one (or twelve) in their collection! keep reading…
