Hey everyone!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! I just had some spare time and decided to do some nail art. I was debating on a bunch of designs and finally decided to settle for a velvet cartoon mani.

Hello ladies, I just wanted to apologize for not posting recently but I had all four wisdom teeth removed 7 days ago now and I'm still recovering. I was so not feeling well and I didn't want to put up a shafty post for you. So nows the time! 

I want to also apologize to Pretty & Polished for being so delayed with this review!

Anyways! On with the review!

I was lucky enough to be apart of their blogger program! I am so grateful because this is my FIRST handmade polish and my FIRST thermal/colour changing polish as well! They also were kind enough to send me one of there Bath and Body items! I was sent the Melon Ball Hand and Body Lotion!
I was super duper excited to share this one with all of you so here we go!

This gorgeous polish is called 'Mirror Mirror'

The one on the left is the photo I took, I just wanted to compare because, in my case it looks like theres a TON of glitter and you cannot really see the glitter in their photo on the right.

I just wanted to show how beautiful it looks!

I absolutely fell in love with this polish when I first tried it on, its a blueish / purplish colour changing polish that has round pink glitters and square blue glitters in it.

Did I mention that all Pretty & Polished lacquers are cruelty free

and 3-free (Dibutyl Phthalate, Formaldehyde, and Toluene)

The first image here is under hot water to show you the lightest shade that it goes.

The middle image is luke warm water and the last is cold water.

I can even achieve a very cool Ombre look with this polish! This is what happens when you hold a cold drink! Haha, As you can see the lightest colour by the cuticle is from my hands being warm and the tips are blue because of the cold drink I was holding.


I was also sent there Melon Ball hand and Body Lotion to review and let me tell you, when I got it I opened it up and took a big whiff! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the scent of this lotion, its so... 'Meloney'? It has a sweet and juicy scent to it and theres honestly nothing like it I've ever smelt before!

It is super duper moisturizing yet not greasy! That is a must have when I'm looking for a lotion for my hands, because I just cannot stand having greasy hands and everything I touch gets greasy to!

On the left is what you would get if you were to purchase the lotion. It comes in a 2oz squeeze bottle with a flip cap top, which I love for a lotion! I even love the simple / minimalistic packaging.

The photo on the right is the very generous sample they sent over my way. It came in a little container (big enough to hold a lot of lotion!) and I even love the little container! I cannot stop putting this on my hands because it smells so yummy I just want to eat it! *drools*

If you would like to purchase any of these products or just go check out what other amazing things she has in her shop go to her website, 

Mirror Mirror - $9.00

Melon Ball Hand and Body Lotion - $5.00

Those are some incredible prices for an Indie dont ya think?!

Overall Thoughts

I absolutely loved doing this review and had a lot of fun doing it!

What do you think of thermal /Colour Changing nail polish?

Would you purchase some of your own?!

Today I will be reviewing some LÄRABAR's and you have probably seen them in your local grocery store, pharmacy or convenience store. Larabar's are a delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices. Made from whole food, each flavour contains no more than nine ingredients! Pure and simple just as nature intended!

Larabars have quality standards for all of there ingredients, they are:
- Gluten Free

- Dairy Free*
- Soy Free*
- All Natural
- Vegan*
- Kosher
- Fair Trade Certified™ Cocoa and Coffee
- No added sugars or sweeteners*
- Non GMO
- No added sulfates
- No preservatives, fillers, or colourings

*Does not include Chocolate Chip varieties.  Chocolate chip flavours are made with a simple 4-ingredient chocolate chip that consists of Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter and vanilla. While no dairy is used to make our chocolate chips, they are made on a line that also produces chocolate chips made with dairy and soy. Due to possible cross contact, the chips we use may contain trace amounts of dairy or soy from other chocolate chips made at the facility: thus we cannot claim these products as Dairy Free, Soy Free or Vegan.

So I just wanted to start off by thanking

 Cult Cosmetics for sending me these two nail art kits that they have for sale on their website. I will leave the links at the bottom of the post. I got the package in about 5 days! Thats so fast for me considering I always get my mail late. They sent me two nail art kits, 'Out of This World' and 'Techno Nights'.

Cult Cosmetics is a great company, they have super fast customer service, they responded the same day, and were super nice! They are a company who wants to make it easy for all of us girls. They want to make affordable put together kits thats makes it super easy for you to do some nail art kits.The kits on their website include everything you will need to complete the desired manicure  From polish to tools, to extras, its all there for you. They are also going to be expanding to makeup and beauty kits so make sure you keep an eye out for that in the upcoming future!

L'oreal Was kind enough to send me a whole bunch of new releases! I will only be sharing a couple with you today. Ill tell you what they sent me first, 3 new shade of polish from their new Colour Riche shade, 3 polishes from the Trendsetter collection, a set of L'Oreal's first ever press on nails, 3 sets of their new Nail Lingerie, and 3 new Colour Riche Nail Top Coats! HOW FREAKING AMAZING IS THAT?! 
Today I will only be reviewing one polish and a topcoat.
Greyt Expectations, I Pink I'm in Love, and He Read My Mind
I absolutely loved this shade! 'I Pink I'm in Love' is a great pink to do a date night mani with. Along with a new top coat that L'oreal has released this month 'Top Coat Carat'. This pink is pretty sheer but its worth it in the end, I ended up using 4 coats of pink because I wanted full coverage. I painted all of my nails with 'I Pink Im in Love' then I took the top coat and went from my cuticle half down my nail, and put a full coat on my accent nail. I put another coat of the top coat on my nails but instead of half way down, stop a little sooner. I ended up with three coats of the Top Coat Carat on my accent nail just to make it really pop! and I put some more at the cuticles on my other fingers
When I had first opened the package I knew what I wanted to do with these two colours,
I just had to wait till date night! haha
I just wanted to share my quick date night mani!
What do you think, would you wear these for a date night?
