SpaRitual Oasis & Happy New Year!

SpaRitual Oasis & Happy New Year!

Today is the first day of the rest of your life…NOT! I know we all tend to make a big deal about the new year, but it really is just another day. I don’t necessarily make official resolutions, but I do tend to think about things that I would like to change or improve. When I actually to promise myself to stick to resolutions, inevitably I break them right away and then I end up feeling super guilty. The biggest thing for me this year is to just be happier. I finally have a job that I like so that makes a huge difference in the quality of my life overall because we spend so much time at work. I know that the #1 resolution is to lose weight, which I desperately need to do, but I’m not going to say that this year. I just need to develop better eating and exercise habits and the rest will fall into place. As far as my blog goes, I want to get back on track with my posting. I haven’t been very consistent these last few months and I have felt that my heart just hasn’t been in it lately. I am feeling recharged and hope to do more nail art to get my creative juices flowing. Being more active on IG has been a lot of fun because I have been able to interact with a lot more people. I also feel that my blog needs a major facelift, but I don’t even know where to start so that will be a project that I will tackle a little later in the year. I wasn’t sure what to wear as my first polish of 2015, so I just grabbed one of the bottles that I recently acquired: SpaRitual Oasis. Let me show you how pretty this polish is.


I recently found most of the SpaRitual Wander Collection at my Ulta for $3 each. What a deal, right? The polishes in this collection are supposed to dry to a satin finish, but this one did not dry down to that finish and looked uneven I ended up top coating it to get an even glossy finish, and I was not disappointed.


And just because it’s been so freaking cold here in SoCal, I decided to use KBShimmer Flake Dance (press sample) to make this whole mani kind of icy and sparkling. I love this glitter and I love how easy it is to use to take your manicure to another level.

So how has the first day of the new year been treating you? What are you hoping to work on for the coming year, if anything? Well, I hope that you had a safe and fun NYE. Thank you very much for continuing to visit my little corner of the internet and I hope to get to meet more of you this year. Have a great rest of your day!

KBShimmer Winter Collection 2014

KBShimmer Winter Collection 2014




I woke up this morning, “jumped out of bed and put on my best suit. Got in my car and raced like a jet…” Oh, wait. That wasn’t my morning, that was Magic’s! Anyway, I did jump out of bed because I thought I was going to puke in my sleep. For the last couple of weeks, I have been getting used to new medication and my stomach is still rebelling so the bathroom has become my best buddy as of late. It is getting easier but sometimes it just hits me like a ton of bricks. I’ve been feeling blah since yesterday but it all exploded today. Let’s just move on to the polish before I really cross the TMI line…or did I do that already? So I am super excited to be showing you some of the polishes that are part of the KBShimmer Winter Collection for 2014. The collection  consists of 11 new polishes and 5 returning holiday shades. Let me show you the 8 that I chose as my favorites.

Sweet baby Jesus on rollerskate–the textures! THE TEXTURES! How gorgeous are those textures? I was hoping that there would be a creme or two (red or green) to pick from just because KBShimmer makes the best cremes, but there were none. This whole collection scream holiday and is just so festive! I think that the only one that seemed a little out of place is Deja Brew BUT it’s pretty damn gorgeous so I can overlook that. I don’t have a single holo with that kind of rich base color so I had to jump all over that.
