Black and White Challenge Announcement

Alrighty... I figured it's time for another nail challenge, since the last one was for Flip/Flop February almost two years ago! I've decided to do the Black & White Challenge, which places an emphasis on using black and white polishes with colors.

This is a 10-day challenge that's been around for a while... you can Google the challenge name and find all sorts of other participants. I'll start posting pics on October 1, so keep an eye out!

Swatch: Salon Perfect's Silver Sparkler

Hello! I've got a swatch I wanted to share of a fantastic top coat from Salon Perfect (which actually lives up to its name!). 

Taken in natural daylight.

Look at all that glittery goodness! This is Salon Perfect's Silver Sparkler from their 4th of July collection and it's fantastic! Application was easy and just one coat delivers a gorgeous mix of holographic silver glitters in two sizes. The be honest, my picture doesn't do this justice... it was so much more sparkly in-person. I added one and a half coats over Dragon Lady and it was lovely!

Summer Neons with Stripes featuring a Whole Lotta Funky Fingers

Hello! Today I've got a fun summer look to share using a new product I bought on an impulse: Salon Perfect's Nail Art Pen in White (702). This was my first time using a nail art pen to draw a design and I wasn't sure what to do... so I went with stripes! 

Taken via cell phone in horrible office lighting...

It's so hard to photograph neons, is it not? The colors in this are horribly off... but just imagine more "pop!" The nail art pen was super easy to use and only took two coats to be completely opaque. The best part is that when you mess up, a bit of rubbing alcohol wipes the design right off! Very simple and opens up the door for all sorts of possibilities!

Review: Venus Embrace Sensitive Razor

Howdy! Today I've got a quick not-nails review for you... the new Venus Embrace Sensitive razor. This razor has aloe strips, 5 blades, and is supposed to cut down on irritation from shaving. 

Design-wise, this is just like every other Venus razor. The handle is the standard Venus design, this time in a light blue/aqua color scheme. The razor head itself is large, which makes it difficult to maneuver around curves and tight places. It's not quite as bulky as the heads with the built-in shave gel but definitely not as easy to wield as the normal Venus head. I do love the 5 blades and I feel like the moisturizing strips did a great job... my legs are super smooth! I'll have to see if my legs become itchy in a few days (oh, the joys of sensitive skin!), but overall I think this is a winner!

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.

Happy Swapoween!

Guess what I'm doing again? Another swap! This time Chaotic Goddess Swaps is hosting a Swapoween event, where each participant is matched up to swap Halloween good. How awesome is that?! Sign-ups are open until the 15th, so there's still time to apply!

I am beyond excited for this! Halloween is my favorite holiday... so much so that I celebrated for an entire month and half last year working at a haunted house! I love the aspect of dressing up, scaring people, everything spooky (& grotesque), and candy! Can I even use any more exclamation points?! YAY!
