What’s On My Nails: November 2013

The fall and winter time are my favorite seasons when it comes to nail color. Don’t get me wrong, I love the bright colors you usually put on your nails during the spring and summer, but there is just something about the darker fall and holiday colors that just draw me in! I am going to be sharing with you the polishes that I wore on my fingernails and one color I wore on my toes!

I have always used the same base and top coat since I started really getting into nail care, and these products are staples in my everyday nail polish collection! The top coat that I use is by L’Oreal and is called ‘One stop Base’. This is a very nice base coat and it really helps the polish that I choose stick to the nail and not chip so quickly. The top coat that I use is by Sally Hansen and it is the ‘Anti-Chip Top Coat’. I’ve been using this top coat for quite some time and I can say that I like this better than the OPI top coat that comes in the mini gift sets you can buy. With the work that I do in my current job, this combo really helps my nail polish last!

The first polish i’ll talk about is the polish I painted on my toes which is by Revlon. This polish is number 660 and is named ‘Divine’. This is a gorgeous deep red polish. This was part of their fall collection I believe, and when I saw this on the shelf I knew I just had to have it! And Revlon polishes are fairly affordable, so I could justify the purchase 🙂 This polish went beautifully onto my toenails and is still on there with little to no wear off! I will definitely be using this on my nails in the upcoming months!

Now i’m going to talk about the first polish that I wore on my nails this month. This is another Revlon polish, and this one is number 220 ‘Rainforest’. This is a colorstay polish and let me tell you that it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I was on the hunt for a forest/hunter green colored polish for a while and when I saw this I immediately knew this was the one! This is a beautiful forest green with yellow shimmers in it. I am absolutely in love with this polish.

Image

For my next polish combo I used OPI’s ‘Decades of Shades’ which is a basic milky brown, and then on top of that I layered OPI’s ‘Warm and Fozzie’ from the Muppets collection. This combo wasn’t my favorite of the month, but it was a different color combination that I had never tried before! I may go back to the Warm and Fozzie polish soon!

Image

My next combo contained the classic style of the ‘Accent Nail’. I used Orly’s ‘Rage’ for the accent nail. A lot of people have this polish in their collection and I don’t blame them! This is the most beautiful rose gold nail polish I have ever laid eyes on. When I saw people rave about it on YouTube and then I saw it in stores, I knew it would be mine. Paired with this polish I have Avon’s ‘Berry Bliss’ which is a beautiful deep berry color. This is a perfect polish for the holidays so I know I will be turning to this polish again before the end of the season.

Image

The last polish i’m going to share is called ‘Haze of Love’ and it is by Wet n’ Wild Megalast. This is another berry color but this is more of a pinky toned berry with a small grey undertone. Although when I put it on my nails it came out much darker, I still really love this polish. The brush is kind of hard to work with but overall I am very pleased with this polish, especially due to how cheap this was.

So I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope it gave you some ideas for new polishes to pick up. Cause what girl has enough polishes already?! I know I sure don’t! 😉

Target Haulage! :)

Hey guys!

First off, Happy November! This year has flown by freaky fast! It’s almost the end of the year, and for me, that means my favorite time of the year is here! I absolutely love everything about Thanksgiving and Christmas, and literally would leave my house decorated for it all year if I could! 

Also I would like to address, I know the title of this blog is Bath and Body Works Obsessed…but I have yet to do any posts about BBW themselves! I just haven’t really had time or money to buy or look at things from BBW! I am hoping around Black Friday or even before I can pick up some candles or soaps and accessories! 

But let’s get on with this haul! I am thinking about making a short video for my YT channel as well but that is a work in progress! 

So I ran out to Target after watching a few people’s hauls on YouTube because there are so AMAZING products out there that are limited edition for the holidays! I am a total sucker for anything related to Christmas, so naturally I bought a lot of things that I did not need.

So as you can see…100% of this stuff I did not need to buy! But I at least was planning on buying the Glade air freshener because as you guys know from my last few posts, I had been looking to complete the collection of the room fresheners! Quick update on that, I have now found all of the scents except for the Frosted Gingerbread. I have gone to my Dollar General several times and there has not been any restock on their Glade section. I asked the SA and she just looked at me dumbfounded like she had no idea what I was talking about. So I am thinking unless I can find another DG near my area that I probably will be missing out on the gingerbread air freshener 😦

So the first item I have to show you are the new *limited edition* Lays Wavy Potato Chips dipped in Milk Chocolate! Chocolate covered potato chips have been a cult favorite in my family for many years, but when I saw that these were coming out I thought I may as well try them! Well, honestly there is nothing super special about them compared to homemade ones that I can make in my own kitchen. However they are still good! Just not worth the $3.49 that I paid for them! 

Image

The next items I have are m&ms! These are two of the limited edition holiday flavors, and I also believe there is a gingerbread one that is available only at Walmart. I love anything peppermint, and limited edition so I had to pick up a bag of each! Who knows, I may end up going back for a few more! I still have three unopened bags of pumpkin spice m&ms from the fall season because I love them so much!

The next things I picked up were these three lotions by Spa Perfect! I found these out because I watched Brandon’s haul on YouTube and he was talking about these! They were in the dollar section which is AMAZING! The first one that I am going to review quickly is the Visions of Sugar Plums (pink packaging). This one is very very subtle, almost to a point where I can’t smell anything at all! But I am sick at the moment, so once everything clears up I will be re-smelling these again! The next one is Twisted Peppermint (red packaging), and this one smells almost identical to the BBW version, but with a lesser note of vanilla. These are kind of cross between a lotion and a body cream to me. They aren’t super thick but they aren’t super thin either, so they will moisturize your hands well! And for $1 you can’t complain! 🙂 The last one is Vanilla Sugar Cookie (blue packaging). This one is a very bakery type scent. I smell more sugary sweet notes than I do vanilla. So this is definitely different than something like Vanilla Bean Noel from BBW. Overall I am actually very impressed with these, for them being only $1, but I will be sticking to my BBW TMC’s for moisturzing the entire body.

The last thing I have to talk about, is the item i’m most excited about! I have gone to Target about 4 times since the holiday collection for Glade was announced, because Walmart had theirs out right away, so I figured Target would be on the ball as well. Well today I FINALLY got my hands on Sweet Holiday Treats. The scent description reads “Indulge in the irresistible scent of rich cocoa, toasted nuts and creamy caramel from those special holiday treats”. This scent is AMAZING! I am seriously blown away by how good this smells. I sprayed it in my kitchen, and I can definitely smell the notes of caramel and cocoa! It smells like someone has been baking goodies all day, and it just really gives a pleasant aroma in the air. I am so happy that I kept my patience and just waited for the floor to be set so that I could get my hands on this scent! 

 

So that is everything that I picked up at Target today! There were so many other holiday related items like food and decor, just I can’t even wait until my next paycheck because I will be going HAM! And now that I moved into my own house, I can decorate however I want 🙂 

Until next time, 

XOXO Kayla
