Bargin Buy Midie Nail Polish

So I stopped in the dollar store one day and I came across this nail polish. I was immediately drawn to the colors well the three in the picture but they had tons more. But I thought these three bright colors were perfect for summer. So I picked them up and though hmmm if they don't work that great they are only a buck fifty. Well as you can see from the picture the color pay off is quite good that is about three coats though. But if you think about itprice wise that's not bad. Yes you need to use three to four coats but hey it's only a dollar fifty. So after I tested them I went back to get more but unfortunately there was no good colors left. Moral of the story test things faster or buy more when you see a bargin and hope for the best :)

OPI Katy Perry Not Like the Movies Dupe

So I really love the color Not Like the Movies from the Katy Perry Collections and when I was at Wal-Mart the other day and noticed the new wet and wild collection there I was happy.

I only have the mini collection for the Katy Perry polishes and I was definately going to repurchase the large size of that color because I love it. However, we all know that OPI is kind of pricy not that I mind paying that for a good polish but the wet and wild was only 2.94 so I figured why pay 10 when I could get pretty much the same color at a third of the cost.

So the Not Like the Movies is the one on the left and the Wet and Wild Grey's Anatomy is on the right. This are pretty close. The OPi is three coats the wet and wild is 2. The OPI has some shimmers in it. But really I can go without the shimmer for the lower cost :)

Nail Polish Haul

So I got some nail polishes from wet and wild and this is what it looks like. Very impressed with the colors they are so pretty.

So colors from left to right are Party of Five Glitter, Greys Anatomy, and 9021 0range

Lip Gloss Swatches

I picked up some lip glosses just a lil lipsmackers one some covergirl and some wet n wild which I've never tried before. So far I am really impressed with the pigmentation on them, well the lipsmackers is clear.

The wet n wild is very pigmented and not too sticky and the cover girl is the same. I may do a full review on my channel so look out for that.

The colors in the swatches from left to right are Wet n Wild Berry Burst, Wet n Wild Sinless, Wet n Wild Rose Gold and Covergirl Grape Splash.

I hope you found this helpful :)

I was super excited when I went to Wal-Mart last week and found that Playboy released fragrences for women. I had bought my husband a gift set of the men's two years ago for Christmas and was tempted to wear the Hollywood myself because I love the smell of it...hehehe. Even though it is men's. I wished they would come out with ones for the ladies as well.

They had put out all three of them "Play it Lovely", "Play it Sexy" and "Play it Spicy" the previous day and the "Play it Lovely" was sold out already so I could purchase that one. The "Play it Lovely" was my husbands faveorite. Initianally it was mine too. So I settled on the "Play it Sexy" and went home.

A few days later I went back out and there was only three bottles left. One of the "Play it Sexy" and two "Play it Spicy" so I thought you know what I'm going to get the "Play it Spicy" because if I leave without it and decid I want it I'll come back and it will be gone. So the stuff is flying off the shelf like hotcakes here.

I actually think the "Play it Spicy" is my favorite it just has and edgy, appealing smell. It reminds me of something that I like and I can't put my fingure on it. They also come packaged like the picture above in gift sets which is similar to the one I got my Hubby :)

So check them out if you have the chance. They have three different scents a little something for everyone's taste I think. For notes and descriptions of each scent please read previous posts :)

Playboy Play it Lovely

I don't own this one yet because they were sold out but trust me I will have it...hehehe

Perfect for daytime flirtation, Play It Lovely is a fresh fruity floral fragrance that evokes a sweet and playful innocence that is guaranteed to enchant. This light, easy-to-wear fragrance opens with a blend of zesty citrus, ripe blackberry and juicy pear. The heart of the fragrance exudes femininity with notes of baby orchid and tuberose, follwed by a warm and sensual base of amber, patchouli and tonka bean. Simply 'Lovely.'

Playboy Play it Sexy

This is the first one I purchased. I really like the smell and I love the packaging on them all.

A darker, more sultry scent, Play it Sexy, is a sexy oriental fragrance that is ideal for special occasions and sure to entice. This sensual, yet sophisticated fragrance opens with an invigorating rush of pink grapefruit and mandarin blended with a spicy hint of pink pepper before building into an exotic heart of jasmine teas, osmanthus and licorice. Rich base notes of vanilla, patchouli, sandalwood and tonka bean complete the experience Intoxicatingly 'Sexy.'

Playboy Play it Spicy

This one may be my favorite out of the three. Something about it that's unique. This is the second one I bought :)

Edgy and alluring, Play it Spicy is a sparkling floriental perfect for night time wear that is certain to captivate your guy. This glamorous fragrance opens with a vibrant burst of pomegranate, bellini cocktail and pink berries that evokes the spirit of a sensational party. The heart seduces the senses with a floral fusion of tiger lily, passionflower and heliotrope, completed by tones of amber, sandalwood and vanilla Sensationally 'Spicy.'

Quality Time with the Doggie Doodles

So I spent a good part of my afternoon today playing with my doggies. They were feeling a little neglected I think since I started working full time. We played tug-o-war and then I taught Griffin to speak and Cassie to give me her paw so definately a productive afternoon :) Cassie is 4 and Griffin is 2 so who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks :)
