Pure Ice After Hours

Hey guys! Happy Friday! Hope you’re all ready for the July 4th celebrations. I am actually flying out in a few hours to visit my cousins in Philly. I can’t wait to meet my youngest cousin’s first son and hang out with my other cousins and their families. I will be missing out on the last days of the Bath & Body Works sale (most items were further reduced to 75% off on Wednesday) but I got pretty much what I wanted except for a few things so I don’t mind as much. I am slightly unsettled about the new pocketbac shape as I have several of the current pocketbac holders. I’ll just buy the big antibac and refill the bottles I suppose. This means the current style of pocketbac holders and the pocketbacs themselves are going for 75% off in most places! But anyway, I hope y’all will have a great 3-day weekend and I’ll leave you guys in this post with Pure Ice After Hours.

Pure Ice After Hours

I really could’ve sworn that I already own the shade in this name but it certainly wasn’t a pink crème. After Hours has a slightly thin formula but it applied nicely over my nail with more coats. It’s a nice shade for the summer and I can picture them looking really cute on toes whether by the pool or the beach. The glossy finish is a nice touch for sure. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Star Blast-Off

Hey guys! It’s the start of the weekend for me today technically and I have a fun shade to share with you guys. It’s also perfect for this weekend’s festivities! Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Star Blast-Off.

Sinful Colors Star Blast-Off

Described as “star-spangled red, white, & blue confetti”, this is another one of the 7 shades from their Having A Blast Collection for 4th of July. This is the glitter topper in that collection and it will go over all the other shades pretty well. Maybe except the white one only because I don’t think the white stars will pop out as much. I thought it would pop out the most against this shade instead of the red or blue as the glitter bits have red and blue in them as well. It’s not as tightly packed as I thought it would be and I did have to fish out the stars. It dried pretty fast. Shown is one coat with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby

Hey guys! It’s Tuesday and the week is chugging along nicely for a short week. I’ll be flying out Friday night to Philly to visit my cousins there. The youngest just had her first baby and I can’t wait to meet the little guy! The eldest is pregnant and due in October I believe. It will be a short but busy trip for me. I’ll probably schedule a post or 2 to cover the days I’m away. Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby.

Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby

Described as “a classic deep red”, this is another one of the 7 shades from their Having A Blast Collection for 4th of July. This is the red in that collection and it’s the perfect red for 4th of July festivities. It’s a bit sheerer than I thought it would be as I can still see VNL at 2 coats. It just looked more opaque in the bottle. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Sinful Colors Out Of This World

Hey guys! Happy Friday! I’m fighting a headache at the moment so I’ll try to keep this short and sweet. Today’s post is on Sinful Colors Out Of This World.

Sinful Colors Out Of This World

Described as “perfect silver with swirls of glimmer”, this is one of the 7 shades from their Having A Blast Collection for 4th of July. This is the silver in that collection. I’ve own this shade before and love how easy it is to apply. It’s a bit sheerer than what I’d like it to be but I have no problems with just applying more coats. Shown is 3 coats with no top coat.

Caronia Orange Pop

Hey guys! It’s almost Friday! I’m looking forward to it once again partly because I may hit the mall for one last go at Bath & Body Works. They keep marking their sale stuff up and down every few days so I’ve been holding off after my initial purchases. Today, I have a bright shade for you guys. Here’s Caronia Orange Pop.

Caronia Orange Pop

Orange Pop is classified as a frost according to them and I say it’s accurate. The streaks left with each brush stroke says it all. It’s prettier and more vibrant on the nail than I thought it originally was. This red orange just pops in my opinion. It dried really fast but is extremely easy to apply. It’s almost opaque at just one coat for me. Shown is 2 coats with no top coat.
