Quick review on Models Own Nail Polish

5 Aug

Ipsy gave a number of winners for me in July.  And a number of them were surprise winners.

The bareMinerals 5-In-1 BB Cream Shadow was one.

The Models Own Nail Polish in Red Sea was the other.


The reason I wanted to review this is because the texture of this polish is different than most.

Models Own is more of a gel than a standard nail polish.

What does this mean?  Well,  it means it’s more chunky than what you are used to.

Is this bad?  Could be.  It can look lumpy especially since this has glitter along with the gel consistency.

Can it be good?  YES. Especially when used on your toes.   This does NOT chip.

I probably wouldn’t use this on my hands, I’m loving it as a summer pedicure.  Love the shade for summer!  If you check out their website, they have some amazing shades!

Nail Trend: OPI Ski Teal We Drop

This color is perfect for fall – winter.  Wouldn’t it be super cute with a glittery contrast nail?!  Or you can add a matte top coat to it like Essie Matte About you!

October must have – Matte Nail Polish.

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

Review! Julep Maven August Box

8 Aug



I love the Julep Maven Box!  I’m shallow, I really like the packaging.  I like how everything is all pretty and matchy.  Totally worth the $20.00 /month price tag, yes?

The theme for this month was flowers 🙂

And my add on was …. Forget Me Not Seeds.  I will plant these at home at some point.  Maybe in the winter, when I’m wishing for spring.

I already used this yellow polish.  It reminds me of candy eggs, like the Cadbury kind.  I want to eat my fingers.   Ok, kidding.  I will probably love this color for spring next year 

The blue is super deep.  It will look amazing on my toesies.  Can’t wait!

The beauty product this month? Doublestep Foot Treatment and Friction Stick.  $22.00 or $17.60 if you are a Maven,

I haven’t used it as a friction protection yet.  Since I’m mostly living in sandals and flip flops, I ‘m not having angry feet.  But, this works nicely as a foot moisturizer.

What did you think of this month’s Maven box?
