October must have – Matte Nail Polish.

22 Oct

It’s time to update your fall colors, especially with nails.  Using a matte top coat to change the texture of your current polish is an easy, and cheap, way to change up your manicure.

My favorite Matte top coat is Essie “Matte About You” – It’s $10 at Ulta.


Look at how excellent black looks matte:


and grey!


Dark Blue.


Or do a combo of Matte and Shiny

I disagree with the NYX eyeshadow Primer they pictured.  Get the HD one, it’s the same price and it works WAY better.


Do you disagree that any of these products work well?  We are interested in that growth shampoo, that seems too good to be true!

As you know we think Nailtiques is the holy grail of nail growth.

Julep – why it’s annoying….

15 Jul


Ok, Julep is a cute little service that sends you a monthly beauty box.  Most of it is hand or nails centered.  I gave it a try but I don’t personally feel like it’s worth the $20 a month (anna likes it and is keeping it.)

But the SUPER annoying thing is that they make it impossible to cancel.  You have to call the between specific hours as they can not cancel your account online for “security reasons.”

The annoying part is I signed up for just one month and they started me on a complete subscription   I guess I should have read the fine print.  Aww well, my bad.



I called the cancelation number.  After 6 mins on hold I was transferred to a voicemail that told me to leave my info and that they would take care of it when they were done helping other customers.  Just seems shady.  How come it’s a security risk if I cancel on a secure https site that took my credit card info but not a risk to leave a voicemail on some phone line?

*update 2*

account cancelled. Received an confirmation email an hour after I called.


DISCLAIMER-  I am not complaining about being charged for the subscription I accidentally (yes, i take ownership of this) signed up for when getting the free box but I am complaining about how it is complicated to cancel your account.
