BornPrettyStore Review: Stamping Plate BP 17

Hi everyone, I posted yesterday about a stamping plate review from BornPrettyStore, and today I have another one to share with all of you! I received Stamping Plate BP 17 which is available for $2.99.


I painted my nails with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Spring Red Creme. I stamped over it using Konad - White stamping polish. I topped it off with a coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Top Coat.

BornPrettyStore Review: Stamping Plate BP 03

Hi everyone, I received a stamping plate complimentary from BornPrettyStore to share with all of you! I received Stamping Plate BP 03 which is on sale now for $2.39.

Julep - Paula

I still had my nails painted from my Julep Box post so I decided to stamp over them with the swirl/star design. My nails have two coats of Julep - Paula. I stamped over it using Beyond the Nail - Deep Black. I topped it off with a coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Top Coat.

BzzAgent: Secret Outlast Clear Gel


Hi everyone! I'm a member of a product review site called BzzAgent and I recently received a Secret Outlast Clear Gel deodorant in “Ooh-La-La Lavender” which is part of their Scent Expressions line. I didn't think I would like this because I'm used to using solid deodorants, but I think I'm about to make the switch. It went on effortlessly and didn't leave any trace of a white residue on my skin. It was weird to feel the plastic against my skin but only because I'm used to using solid deodorant. The scent was also amazing! I'm not one for scents, but this one smelled amazing and wasn't over powering. 


With winter already here, I’ve got to bundle on layers of clothes and sometimes I do get hot and sweat (especially when shoveling all the snow!). As I said previously, I’m used to using solid deodorants and not gel ones. Secret Outlast Clear Gel is said to have 48 odour protection and does not leave white marks. Something I’m sure we all look for in a deodorant. I've been wearing the deodorant on for over 6 hours and I can still smell the scent. I don't think I'll have to be worrying about anything :)

December Julep Maven Box: Personalized!


Hi everyone! I usually skip my Julep Maven box but I really liked some of the products they had this month. I didn't like any of the boxes they had up to offer, so I chose to personalize my own box! I chose a persian blue (it looks purple to me..) polish with a gold shimmer in it, a sparkly copper eyeshadow, and a cuticle serum. I've received their cuticle serum a long time ago and I've always wanted to get it again.


Julep - Paula

I used two coats of Julep - Paula above and topped it off with a topcoat to make it super shiny! The first coat was streaky and uneven, but the second coat made it all better.

Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum




Julep's Mighty Nail & Cuticle Serum is one of my favourite items for my cuticles. I like it because it doesn't go on oily and is so easy to apply. All you need to do is twist the bottom of the container and the cuticle serum will come out on the top where the bristles are.

Airglow: Champagne with rose gold pearlescence
Julep's eyeshadows are really good! If it wasn't for this product in this months box, I don't think I would've picked one. I chose airglow because it's a subtle colour, but also gives off a nice sparkle! I'm actually wearing it today and I love it!

Influenster: Keurig 2.0 Voxbox


 Hi everyone! Influenster sent me the new Keurig 2.0 K300 Brewing System and I get to share it all with you (Well, share the information and pictures... the Keurig is mine!! Haha).

The new Keurig 2.0 brews not only single cup servings but also 4 cup servings in their new carafe. It also has a “strong” setting to brew bolder coffee, and an additional setting to prepare hot cocoa and other specialty beverages.


 I haven’t had much experience using a Keurig machine before. At work, we use a Flavia machine so I figured it would be very similar. The Keurig 2.0 was very easy to set up and start using. There aren’t many buttons to press that would be confusing, so it was very straight forward to use it. I washed the carafe and water container before using the machine for the first time to get rid of any “plastic” taste. 


 Along with the Keurig machine itself, I also received 2 K-Carafe packs and 4 K-Cups. After going through a hot water cycle with the Keurig, I decided to make myself a hot chocolate! 
 
Choose drink, select options, & brew!

 I started by lifting the handle on the Keurig machine and placing my K-Cup into the holder. I closed the lid and that's when the display screen prompted me to input some information. It asked me cup size (4oz, 6oz, 8oz, or 10oz), if I wanted a strong brew or if it was hot cocoa/other. I selected 8oz, checked off that it was a hot cocoa beverage and pressed the big Keurig 2.0 button to start brewing! Within seconds my drink was being poured into my cup :)

I really like this product and am super happy I was sent it complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Are any of you guys going to go buy the new Keurig 2.0 brewing machine system? It was super easy to use and looks very sleek and modern!

Simple Candy Cane Accent Nail

Taken with flash

Hi everyone! I have a very simple nail look for Christmas today - a candy cane accent nail!

I started by painting my nails two thick coats of Beyond the Nail - White Microglitter. When completely dry, I painted one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Top Coat. Afterwards, I placed both thin and thick Line Nail Guides (from Beyond the Nail) on my ring finger and painted over it with a thick coat of Beyond the Nail - Red Microglitter. While still wet, I gently peeled off the nail guides to reveal the cute candy cane stripes on my nails. I topped each nail off again with PRO-FX - Quick Dry Top Coat to make them all super smooth!

Icicles!

Taken with flash

Hi everyone! Happy Friday :)
Are you all ready for winter? If not, the icicles on my nails might help! 

I started by painting my nails with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Winter Wonderland. When dry, I topped it off with one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Top Coat. When that was completely dry, I placed an Icicle Nail Guide over the top of each nail. I painted over each nail and nail guide with one thin coat of Beyond the Nail - Asteroid, and immediately took off the nail guide after painting each nail. Finally I topped it off with PRO-FX - Quick Dry Top Coat.
