Another NOTD look!

This look used Orly Top2Bottom as the base and top coat, China Glaze Recycle (the gray) and Quo by Orly Pretty in Pink.
I attempted a dot, but I think I'll use a bobby pin next time.  What do you think?

Another NOTD for you!
For this look I used my trusty Orly Top2Bottom as the base and top coat, and used 2 coats of Julep Leah on all except my ring finger which has 2 coats of Color Club Endless Summer.

What do you think?

May 16th Mini-Haul!

I'm back! I have a mini haul to share with you!

From left to right: Orly Fiesta, Orly Bailamos, Balea Ultra Hold Curl Defining Mousse, Orly Top2Bottom, Lacoup Volume Refresh Dry Shampoo, Orly Top2Bottom

I found this bunch of goodies for $8.25 in the discount area at my local Shoppers Drugmart! Awesome I know! The deal with the Orly was 1 nail colour + 1 mini top and bottom coat for $2.50! Fantastic! AND... Bailamos was on my to-buy list so double awesome!
It's the old packaging for Orly nail polish, but for $2.50 in colours I haven't been able to find in the new packaging I'm thrilled with this find!
I've used the Top2Bottom in place of my Revlon Multi Care Base+Top Coat, and while there's not a huge difference I find this is able to go on just a bit more smoothly. And as minis I might even finish a bottle!
I've been on the lookout for a cheap dry shampoo to try ever since purchasing the Tresemme brand only to have it clog after 4 uses, so I picked up this Lacoupe volumizing hoping it could do the trick, I've yet to try it out but will let you know what I think once I do.
And finally the Balea mousse. I have tested this product out, after towel drying my hair for a bit, I sprayed the mousse into my hand and worked it through my damp hair and then put my hair in a bun and went to sleep. In the morning, while my hair wasn't as curly as it normally can be, the volume definitely worked. I even got compliments on my fuller than usual ponytail!

What's your favourite dry shampoo? What great deals have you found this week?

NOTD: May 13, 2013

Hey everyone!
Sorry it's been a while since my last post, exams and vacation have kept me otherwise occupied.
Here's my very first NOTD post! I'll admit I'm not the best at nail painting, so there probably won't be much in the way of nail art (yet!), but just trying to give you an idea of my style and some interesting combinations I've put together.
So after that ramble, here's the first NOTD:
This is OPI My Very First Knockwurst with Orly Nite Owl as the accent nail.
It took 2 coats of OPI and 1 coat of Orly for this look. I also used my Revlon Multi Care Base+Top Coat as the base and top coat. This picture was actually taken the day after I painted my nails, so you can see this lasted well!
What did you think of this NOTD?
