National Popcorn Day Nails

Popcorn Day Nails - Zoya Jules

Who knew there was a National Popcorn Day?  But when Kernels tweeted about it, I had to do my nails to match. They didn’t come out as well as they did for my MTV Awards manicure but still a fun look.  Since Kernels alerted me to the “holiday” I went with blue and white bags.  My striping polish seems to have gone missing, probably hiding in a cat bed and the white I used didn’t work as well as I[Read more]

Close to poppy looking but not perfect.  Plus, the way the stamp is designed, there isn’t a lot of space for a background so I ended[Read more]

Essence Eyeshadow Base Comparison With The Velvets Eyeshadows Swatches

Essence recently released a new paler version named I Heart Colour Intensifying eyeshadow base and I tried it out to see if it lives up to the original I Heart Stage base without the orange colour.  Since I have some of the new shades of The Velvets range, I thought I would swatch them for you to compare the two Essence eyeshadow bases. Essence’s I Heart Stage eyeshadow base has been a makeup bag staple for me for as long as[Read more]

Essence Jeans On! & So What?

Essence The Gel Jeans On and So What Polishes Review & Swatches

I recently picked up two of the new polishes available at Shoppers Drug Mart from Essences The Gel line.  While some of the new colours are online or Loblaws exclusives, there are six new shades available at Shoppers.  My local store only got four and I picked up Jeans On! and So What?  The selection of new polishes also contained several pinks, Let’s Be Awesome Tonight, Dreaming of Love and Feels Like Birthday (from palest to darkest) and Dream On which[Read more]
