Hi there! Happy Friday to you!! My most favorite day of the week by far! This has been a long and exhausting week. I’m glad to see it end and have the weekend nearby. What are you doing this weekend? Tonight I’m hanging out with Melissa. I cannot wait! We have a few stores that we want to check out and I think we are going to take out food to eat at her house. It should be a fun and relaxing evening. Tomorrow, Mike and I are continuing our search for housing. We are hopeful that we will find something and have changed a few things with our search. I will get to that in another post on another day. The rest of the weekend is up in the air. I am planning on trying a new recipe this weekend. It’s an easy one from one of my favorite food blogs so I’m sure it will turn out lovely.
Let’s get started on Fun Finds Friday! Today I am going to feature new beauty products that I have heard about or seen. I think it will be nice to take a break from food products for a week and focus on a completely different area.
Maybelline has come out with a new nail polish line. The new Color Show collection comes in metallics, shredded and regular color. As you can see they are really bright and colorful. I think they are pretty especially the purple and pink colors.
This new line from Revlon is a palette of 10 curated color combinations. A skinny nail art brush on one side allows you to create any kind of design that you want. As you can see one of the combinations even has sparkles. I think this is such a creative idea! Now you can do nail art at home instead of paying more money at a salon!
Ulta’s new summer collection of beauty smoothie comes in three scents: Lemonade, Strawberry Delight, and Orange Your Dreamy. This product can be used as shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath! I love that it’s so versatile in its uses! I am a fan of the Ulta Beauty Smoothie products. I have a few in my shower myself. I like to change-up my body wash all the time. So I need variety of kinds to choose from. They are always running specials on these and you can use coupons so it usually makes for a decent deal and is a great idea for a gift.
The Essie Resort collection is the newest collection of Essie polish out right now. As you can see it comes in 7 different colors: Come Here!, First Timer, In the Cab-ana, Under Where?, Nice Package, and Again?. I think these colors are super cute! I would love to have them either on my toes or my fingers. They are perfect for spring/summer!
This new collection for spring features colors inspired by the movie, Oz the Great and Powerful. As you can see there are some sparkly colors as well as regular colors. I think out of this collection I really only like the sparkle polishes. I’m not a fan of any of the others.
This collection has limited-edition colors that were personally selected by Mariah Carey. The last four polishes are called “Liquid Sand.” It dries to a textured matte finish infused with reflective glints of light. With that polish you apply the base coat and two top coats of color. You do not use a top coat. I think the colors are somewhat pretty. I’m not a huge fan of this collection.
The last new collection from OPI is their Euro Centrale colors which are inspired by the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Romania. I think some of the colors are pretty. I like the purple and pink but that is about it in this collection. I’m very picky when it comes to nail polish colors.
This is Marc Jacobs newest scent that has come out. He has the original Daisy and now this is Daisy Sunshine. I can’t remember what Daisy smells like so I can’t compare the two. I love the bottle though. It’s so cute and it sounds like it would be a nice scent for summer!
Have you tried any of these products? Which ones would you want to try? Have any beauty favorites so far for spring 2013?
I haven’t tried anything new for the spring yet. I would like to get into the trend of having the ring finger on each hand polished with sparkles. I like how that looks. I haven’t got around to buying a bottle of sparkle nail polish yet to do it though. I’m always inspired by some of the nail art that I find on Pinterest . It’s addicting to look at. Who am I kidding? That is site is addicting in general!
Alright, have a great Friday and a lovely weekend!
