Nail Polish of the Day #4

Happy Thanksgiving!
I hope everyone has a wonderful day with friends and family (and food) today!

For the occasion, I thought I'd do something a little different using earth tones. This is 2 coats of Essence Colour & Go in "Walk of Fame" with polka dots in "Gold Rush" by L.A. Colors Art Deco (the nail art line with the skinny bottles). I just used a toothpick dipped in the gold polish to make the dots. Then topped everything off with a Seche Vite top coat. Super easy. 

I love Essence polishes b/c they're small, cheap, and come in a ton of great colors. They also last a good amount of time for something that's about $1. I can find them at Ulta. I actually haven't seen them sold anywhere else in my area. (added bonus - the caps match the color of polish! LOL)

Have a great holiday! Gobble gobble!

$aving$ - Wet n Wild eye shadow palettes and liquid liner

When I was younger, I used to buy Wet n Wild makeup because it was about .99 cents for nearly every item they offered. Never mind that the eyeshadow was powdery, translucent, and cracked out of the container half the time. Never mind that the lipsticks smelled like burning rubber, or the blushes only came in a few shades of unwearable pinks and was cheap, dammit! 
Lucky for me and my wallet, Wet n Wild have drastically stepped up their game in the past few years. The price has gone up just a couple bucks, and it's totally worth it. I'm a big big fan of their new eyeshadows and a new liquid liner. Keep reading for swatches and more info!
