Perfect Red for Summertime Toes


Hello, everyone!  I hope you're all having a great week :)  Since the weather is FINALLY warming up here in Michigan, I thought I would give myself a pedicure using one of my favorite polishes.  Please don't mind my little feet... I'm only a size 6.

Let's get into today's post!  As far as I'm concerned, every girl should have a go-to red nail polish.  I would say it's almost as important as The Little Black Dress.  It's timeless, classic and elegant.  I decided to keep it short and sweet and painted them with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Cherry Red.  I just love a classic red.... who doesn't right?  

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Invisible 100 Top Coat & Cherry Red 07

As some of you have seen in previous nail posts, I frequently use Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Polishes and that would be because I think they're pretty great!  I love the color selection, quality and of course, the price... you can't beat a $2.97 polish that actually works!  I recommend that you give them a shot.

CULT Nails -- Vegan California Polish



Hello, everyone!  Back today with a new nail post... featuring CULT Cosmetics nail polish in Belmont Shore, this beautiful pink-lavender shade.  This nail shade was included in March's Vegan Cuts Beauty Box.  CULT Cosmetics is cruelty-free, vegan and made in California.  The polish is even 5-Free, which means it excludes five nasty chemicals that are found in standard nail polishes.  I'll admit, it's been several weeks since I've painted my nails--shhh don't tell!-- so I figured I'd FINALLY get some use of this shade!  I kept it simple, keeping it pink :)

I really love CULT Belmont Shore!  What do you think?

Smith's Rosebud Salve -- Review & Uses

 

Hello, everyone!  Thanks for stopping by and visiting me!  I'm back today with a new review on Smith's Rosebud Salve by Rosebud Perfume Company (find it here).  This is a multi-use product that's made in the USA and is cruelty-free.  If you'd like to hear more, keep reading!

Please note: This post contains affiliate links through Magic Links.


I purchased this salve from Sephora a couple months back for only $6.  I read amazing reviews online, so I figured I'd try it out... plus it got my order total to earn free shipping.  There's so much to love, down to the perfectly decorated tin, rose scented fragrance and the beautiful light pink shade itself.  I was easily tempted with this purchase!


My favorite and primary use of this salve is as a lip balm.  It's the best lip balm I've tried in a LONG TIME!  The consistency is smooth and it's so hydrating on the lips.  It's cured my dry lips and gives them such a glossy, natural look when used alone.  In addition to using it as a lip balm, I love messaging it into my cuticles and it works great.  I also love dabbing a layer over my lipstick to add some extra moisture and shine.  This way, it prevents my lips from drying out from my more pigmented lipsticks.


If you have guessed already, I'm in LOVE with this Rosebud Salve and highly recommend it!  Let me know if you try it yourself... I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.  If you enjoyed please google+, comment and join this site (follow) for more.  You can also now follow me on Bloglovin' with the button that is on the upper right panel of this page.  You have an amazing rest of your day!
