Nail Time: Essie Nice is Nice Polish

As ya'll know I paint my nails A LOT and I have always loved lavender nails! About a month ago I wrote a post on Sally Hansen's Lovely Lilac polish....and while that was a good polish after about a month of having it the polish got really dry and thick and hard to apply. So my hunt for a new lavender polish began. I was at CVS and came across Essie and fell in love with the lavender color called "Nice is Nice".

It's a true lavender color that looks great on any skin tone! The formula is about a medium consistency which I like, not too thin and not too thick! It did take 3 coats to get is as opaque as a like but I'm picky and 2 coats is probably enough haha! Here is what it looks like on my hands....
I love this color and love thier polishes! Check out their new collection: Cocktail Bling online or in stores!

Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner

I've always had a love/hate relationship with liquid liner! I love the way it looks but it was always really difficult for me to apply properly...until now!

I love Urban Decay products (duh) their shadows are really pigmented, their pencil liners last for days (literally) and this liquid liner is the most long lasting, easiest to apply liner I have EVER encountered! If you want to do some online shopping, and who doesn't these days, here is their website: or you can also find their stuff at Sephora and Ulta.

First off I really like the packaging of this product. The "reinvented" the packaging and it is so much better! It is sleek and neat just way easier to apply the product. Next lets go over the color. The one I bought is in the shade "Perversion" which is a great inky black color! Which is perfect for smokey eyes or just every day wear! The brush, yes I said brush, is so small and thin you can get a variety of lines from really really thin to Twiggy thick. I really like that it is a brush applicator as opposed to the felt tip, I feel like the the felt tip ones hold a lot of product making a thin line impossible, I also for me it is really hard to work with a felt tip brush I have no idea why.
Lastly when it says "24/7" it means..24/7! This stuff STAYS like  nobody's buisness, it dries really fast and I wear it to school for 10 hours and at the end of the day it still looks like I first applied it! No smudging or budging!!

Although I really love Urban Decay products, if you are on a tight budget you might want to think twice...this liner was $18! Honestly (you guys know I'm honest) that is really the only con about their products but in my opinion it's worth it for a product like this! Go check out their stuff and tell me what you think :)

Love, Lipstick, and Liner
