Today I have a glitter packed polish from Reverie Nail Lacquer to show you. Reverie is know for their jelly + glitter polishes, so I was excited to try this one out since it added a shimmery base twist to the mix.

Today I switching things up a bit and sharing a new-to-me skincare product with you. I love clay based face masks so when Maple Holistics approached me about reviewing a few items from their skin care line I couldn't resist picking a couple of theirs to try out. Let's take a look at the first one I tried, the Ancient Clay Facial Mask.

Today I have some nail are to show you that I wore to not one, but two weddings this past weekend! (It was slightly exhausting :P ). I started out with a base of Girly Bits Mint-al Precesion topped with one coat of Pahlish The Wayfarer. Then I used China Glaze Liquid Leather and Pueen Plate SE03B to stamp on the black swirl design. Finally I sealed everything up with a coat of Seche Vite. Photos show the above mani in daylight spectrum lighting.

Today I have a beautiful polish from Femme Fatale to show you. They've been releasing a whole bunch of stockist exclusives lately and this is one of the Beautometry exclusives. I had a great first order experience with this new to me stockist.

Today I have the second polish that I purchased from China Glaze's Fall 2015 collection, The Great Outdoors. I couldn't resist the mix of glitter and flecked shimmer in this one so it ended up coming home with me.

Today I have the polish collaboration from Elevation Polish and Pahlish to show you. This pair is part of the Marco Polo collections recently released by each maker. I rushed to get these swatches together for you since this duo is a limited edition for the month of August and there are only a couple of restocks left.

Today I'm trying out my first ever gel polish. Bio Seaweed Gel sent me a couple polishes from their Unity All-In-One line to test out. The nice thing about these gels is that they cure in bright direct sunlight, so you don't need a UV lamp to use them. Also, you don't need to roughen up your natural nails before hand, just prep with rubbing alcohol. Bonus: They are 5-free!

My Birchbox arrived in the mail so it's time to share what was inside. This month the sneak peek said we would be getting a Laqa & Co Cheeky Lip Tint in either Cray Cray - coral, or Humble Brag - pink. I was hoping for the pink one. Let's see which option I got and what else made up this month's box.

Today I have a simple glitter gradient to show you. I used ILNP Paper Route as my base colour and then dabbed on Lucky 13 Lacquer Song Of Storms to do the gradient. Finally, I used two coats of Essence Gel-Look top coat to smooth everything out to a glassy finish. This is a super easy look but I think the results look really pretty. Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.

Today I have nail stamping to show you. This was my first attempt at using my new Moyou London XL Marshmellow stamper and I'm starting to get the hang of it (after a few warped stamps). I started with The Polish Bar White Lilac as my base colour. Then I stamped on the kaleidoscope pattern using China Glaze Liquid Leather and Kaleidoscope plate 03. Finally, I used OPI Purple Perspective from the Color Paints collections to colour in part of the stamped design. One coat of Essecne Gel-Look top coat was used to seal everything up. Photos show the above mani in daylight spectrum lighting.

I try to resist buying holo's these days since I tend to buy the same family of colours over and over again. However, when the ILNP Summer 2015 collection came out, I couldn't resist the lure of the flecked holos. The flecked finish made them just different enough that I could justify picking up a few for myself. Paper Route is the first one I've had a chance to wear.

Today we're going to take a little break from nail polish and talk about skincare. THEFACESHOP is a brand I'd heard about but never really explored before. When I was given the opportunity to review some of their products I was really excited to try out a new to me brand. THEFACESHOP sent me some of their Herb Day 365 Cleansing Foam in peach and a Black Seed Firming Mask Sheet to try out.
