 I used Revlon's Colorstay base/top coats
White polish from Sinful Colors
Large dotting tool

NOTD: Mustache

I decided to try out a version of something I saw on pinterest. Here's how it turned out!
I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I can not really give you a "tutorial" of how I did it because I just looked at a picture for inspiration and kinda "just winged it".  I used Sinful Colors Brand polish for both the black and the white.  A large and small dotting tool to draw all the art.  The glitter finger is a few coats of Revlon's Sequins Polish.  For my base and top coat I used the Revlon Colorstay.

Not Your Mother's® Beach Babe™ Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

I love this Stuff!!
Not Your Mother's® Beach Babe™ Texturizing Sea Salt Spray

check out Not Your Mother's here
 
 
This is what my hair looks like when I let it air dry with only the Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray in it!  As you can see it gives me the perfect undone waves.  My favorite things about this product are:
  1. packaging
  2. smell
  3. works on all types of hair
I work as a hairstylist and I always pack this in my kit when I do any prom/wedding hair.  I especially love to use this product after I curl my client's hair.

What's in my influenster Sweetheart VoxBox 2013



Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response: $7.99-$9.99
 
I have been curious about this deodorant ever since it came out and I can not wait to try it!
 
Skinnygirl Daily On-The-Go Bars: $9.99 box of 5 bars
 
I really enjoy bars like this so I am interested to see how these taste.  I am not a huge fan of the texture of coconut(call me weird but...) so we will see if I like the flavor.
 
 Olay Fresh Effects { Va-Va-Vivid!} Powered Contour Cleansing System: $12.99
Olay Fresh Effects {Shine, Shine Go Away!} Shine Minimizing Cleanser: $6.99 for full size
This cleansing system is really cool.  I will put this too the test and review it soon. 



 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray : $6.00 for full size.

I have used this Not Your Mother's spray before and I already know that I love it! This is a great size for traveling.
 
 
All in all I am pretty impressed with what I got in my Sweetheart VoxBox!  I will post my thoughts on these products after I try them all out.

Total Beauty Collection

 
I actually purchased this box through living social . com but is available on TotalBeauty 's website. What I really like about Total Beauty Collection's beauty sample box program is that there is no monthly subscription fee. Pick the sample box you like and pay as you go!  You can also purchase products from there site at amazing deals.
 
I love how F A S T the shipping of this box was and how nice the packaging was.  Over all I am happy with my purchase.
 

 
 

 
 

I am excited about this product, a full size NYX roll on shimmer. I wish I got a more wearable color though...blue just is not something I reach for often.  The roller ball glides the product on smoothly and it truly shimmers. 

Full-size price $4.50


 
 

 
I have never herd of this brand of hair care before so I will be interested to try this out. 
 
This ultra-luxurious beauty fluid instantly adds more light, shine, and softness to every hair type. Full-size price $26/30ml
 

Another full size product! And hey, you can never have enough lip balm laying around.
 
100% naturally derived, this lip balm contains vitamin E, which nourishes, soothes, and adds moister. Full-size price $3/1.7 oz 
 
 
Ferro: Blush x3
A multiuse 100% mineral pigment blush that adds long-wearing color to cheeks, as well as lips, eyes, and nails. Full size price $17/4g
 

 
These little guys are messy(no sifter) but that's what you get lots with pigments/ loose products.  It is hard to say how much the sample sizes are since one container is filled and the other is almost empty.  Both colors look similar in the jar and contain shimmer. Terra Cotta is more warm/brown toned , while Suzie's Glow is more peach/pink. The powders are smooth and glide on easily. 
 
 
They also included a $20 coupon code for SOLESOCIETY.

NOTD: Julep's Julia

Nail of the Day
Julep's Julia from the December '12 American Beauty Box
 

2 coats Revlon Colorstay Base Coat
2 coats Julia by Julep
2 coats Revlon Colorstay Top Coat

This color is gorgeous.  The glitters in it are so fine that any way you turn your hand they hit the light and shine.  At one angle it appears purple and at another gold glitter. When I first saw this color just in the bottle I wasn't sure it was my style but I do love the way it looks.  It has great staying power  and has not chipped since I applied it 3 days ago.  (This is a record for me since I do hair/nails for a living.)

Check out this polish and many more at www.julep.com
