The Answer to Removing That Gel Manicure

Nailmates-main
The main reason I tend to stay away from the gel manicure is the removal process. Yes the pluses to these manicures are many: shiny nails, durability, longevity, but oy, the removal. No bueno. And heck, now that I think about it, glitter nail polish is also quite a process to remove as well. 

And I was hoping for someone to come along and create an easier way to remove polishes such as these, like just a straight up super remover that can handle the task but I guess we’re not there yet. So in the meantime, I’m settling for these NAILMATES.

Smells of Spring

Sweet-Smells-O-Spring

1. MATRIX Biolage Polishing Hair Scrub ($23/7.6oz @ jcpenney.com) – this pre-shampoo sugar scrub was made to clean the scalp and hair and I’m a fan of these pre-products lately. This one smells like fresh cut lemons.

2. WEN 'Spring Honey Lilac' eau de parfum ($109/3.4oz @ chazdean.com) – I think I may have found my springtime scent! Living in California, I don’t come across lilacs at all so it’s nice to be able to smell them again on the regular with this frag.

3. METHOD Foaming Body Wash in Ruby Orange ($4.74/18oz @ walgreens.com and target.com) – no waiting for lather with this one! Just a few pumps of this in the wash cloth and you’re ready to go. And the scent is really nice and uplifting.

4. REVIVAL Coffee + Rose Hip Natural Body Scrub ($21.95/8oz @ revivalbodycare.com) – if you need your coffee to wake you up in the morning, you may want to check this one out because coffee is the main ingredient. Also inside this Vegan scrub is coconut oil, brown sugar, virgin olive oil, sea salt, and rose hip oil. That’s it! #supportindies

Benefit Cosmetics Introduces the Brow Collection

Benefit-Cosmetics-Brow-Collection-main
I watched a bunch of snaps of the huge party BENEFIT COSMETICS had in Las Vegas for the launch of their Brow Collection over the weekend (yup, my invite got lost in the mail) and wow, this collection is huge!

What looked like a couple dozen different products in the pictures and video is actually only 10 total products; some have been out before and this is their relaunch and some are brand new. All are out in July 2016 in the United States.

Check out all the pictures below!
