Darling Diva Polish - Temporary Insanity Swatches & Review


To kick off this weekend I have a quick swatch spam and review for a beautiful top coat by Darling Diva Polish.

Temporary Insanity is literally everything packed into a topcoat; holographic, color changing sparkly awesomeness! My Swatches are 2 coats of Plum Noir by Orly, followed by 1 coat of Temporary Insanity, followed by 1 coat of Gelous (optional).

I can not even keep up with the color shifting and the different looks this one top coat gives, and is truly one of those polishes you have to own to appreciate!

Darling Diva Polishes can be purchased from her bigcartel shop found here.You may also purchase her polishes from Llarowe, Mei Mei's Signatures, Le Doux Nuage, and Edgy Polish. Don't forget to check out her Facebook fanpage found here also for sneak peeks, updates, and deals!
Peace & Love,

Softlips CUBE - Vanilla Bean & Berry Bliss Review and Giveaway

Whether you are a beauty enthusiast or not, one thing we all HATE is dry lips! But with the new Softlips CUBE's, dry lips are no longer a problem.

The Softlip CUBE comes in two scents;Vanilla Bean & Berry Bliss, and I have been sent both to put to the test. The Softlip CUBE is said to hydrate and replenish the lips, while protecting from further dryness, smoothing out the lips, and add shine.

So to test all of these factors, I went a day or 2 without using any other lip products, and keeping up my regular diet (which barely includes water). Here are what my lips looked like before using the CUBE's.

My lips were extremely dry! But here is what my lips looked like after my first day of applying the Softlip CUBE's when needed. If definitely added shine and hydrated instantly, but my lips weren't completely healed on the first day.

I continued to use the CUBE's for 3 days, and I could definitely see a difference. The first picture is what my lips looked like with the product on by the third day, while the others is what my lips looked like with absolutely no products on. The dryness on my lips was completely gone with & without the product, and both scents smell AMAZING.

Now for the fun part! I have the honour of giving away an awesome prize pack valued at $50 that includes:
  • 1 Softlips CUBE in Berry Bliss
  • 1 Softlips CUBE in Vanilla Bean
  • 1 Purse Mirror
  • 1 Clutch Purse with Zipper Chain Wristlet 

The only rule of this giveaway is that you have to have a Canadian shipping address were the prize can be sent! The giveaway will run from today, August 16th to August 26th. All you have to do to be entered is comment below telling me some of your go-to beauty treatments or products, & I will randomly select a winner. Goodluck!

Peace & Love,

Born Pretty Store - 12pc Blue Water Decals Review

Today I have a beautiful set of water decals from the Born Pretty Store to show you.

This set comes with 12 full nail decals and a tiny nail file to assist with the application. I chose these decals because they reminded me of a double stamping manicure, and I loved the color combination.

So, I followed the basic procedures for applying water decals & a few minutes later, this is what my nails looked like! I know you're supposed to apply topcoat to help it last longer, but I just sealed the ends by lightly brushing over it with acetone. I don't recommend you doing this if you don't have a light hand, or you might accidentally take off a piece... Like I did.

I don't know why, but these decals make me feel so fancy (LOL)! I have a few left, and would love to try these out on longer nails to see how the full design looks in some sort of a mix and match mani.

The 12pc Blue Water Decals currently cost $1.99 with free shipping, but Daisy has provided me with a coupon for you guys to make the deal even sweeter! If you use the code "SKL91" during checkout you will receive an additional 10% off your purchase from the Born Pretty Store for all of your nail art needs.
