You're Flirty for a First Timer, said Essie.

Fresh. Fun. Fabulous. Try something totally unexpected like this adorable newbie green nail lacquer and you'll want to do it again and again.
How awesome is this minty green? It's just screaming to be paired with a pair of navy sailor pants and a white shirt with a pop of yellow from your choice in shoe.
The second I saw this in CVS, I had to have it. I haven't purchased Essie in a few months so this was a nice treat and  fun switch up. And I didn't purchase it alone: Come Here! came with us.
I started with NailFoundation and added 2 coats of FirstTimer, with 2 minutes between coat 1 and 2. The finish is creamy and even without streaking and completely opaque. it dried quickly and evenly and I topped it with Hardware ensuring a shiny, protective top seal.
FirstTimer wore well for a 3-Free polish. It lasted 2.5 days before it showed a small chip. This is a gorgeous shade and I am glad that I was able to add it to my collection. Have you purchased FirstTimer? I rate this n…

OMega Body Buff by Mama Mio is OMazing!

OMega Body Buff uses micro-ground pumice grains in a creamy Sweet Almond Oil moisturizing base. The micro-ground pumice grains are perfectly round and very plentiful, so you can quickly exfoliate on a weekly basis without it feeling like a drama or a drag.

One of the creamiest exfoliators that I have ever used, MamaMio's OMega is the only body exfoliator that is gentle enough to use on moist facial skin, too! The OMega difference: You apply this product to dry skin and then rinse off. I have added it to my Freeman anti-stress dead sea mineral treatments: as I wait for the masque to dry I apply OMega, after about 10 minutes I step into the shower and rinse it all off, revealing the soft, smooth and bright skin.

OMega goes beyond simple exfoliation, it is serious about taking care of your skin. Packed full of Sweet Almond Oil, Aloe Vera, Chamomile and Vitamin E these ingredients increases cell regeneration, improves strength and elastici…

Turn on Stila's Chandelier and Come Here! exclaimed Essie.

I am having so much fun with nautical this year and all the shades that are generally associated with Spring time, like coral and poppy. Come here!is outrageously outspoken, this nearly neon coral nail polish makes it perfectly clear: nobody does it better. I start with NailtiquesFormula2 as my base coat and apply 2 coats of Come here! waiting 2 minutes between coats. I spice this look up with the addition of Chandelier by StilaCosmetics on my ring finger. It's such a glam accent. Identified as having a clear base with a strong silver presence and polychromatic assortment of glitter, 3 coats complete the opaque look I am going for. I apply this over Nailtiques alone, not on top of Come Here! I want a pure look not a top coat effect. I adore this look, the creamy and the shiny work so well together. xoxo •Nancy-Lee
