Orly French Manicure Kit: Review & Photos!

One of my all time favorite nail trends is the french manicure. It's something that I feel like will NEVER go out of style. You can wear this trend anytime of year and it seems like it's really popular for brides and the bridal party. Most of the time when I wear a french manicure, it'll either be gel or acrylic. I've never been brave enough to attempt to do a french manicure myself. Well the other day at Sally's Beauty Supply, I came across this french manicure kit from Orly. I decided to pick it up and try it out! Surprisingly, it was really easy for me to do! 



This kit comes with a 2-in-1 basecoat and topcoat, white tips nail polish, and nail color. For my kit I chose the Pink Nude nail polish. The kit also has white tip guides. I didn't use the guides and I felt like it was easier without them. My Grandma did her nails with this kit, and she said she had some troubles with the guides. I think it's just a personal preference whether you like the tip guides or not. 



I had never used Orly polish before this, so I didn't really know what to expect. I'm actually really impressed! The polish was really pigmented and seemed to dry quick. So far it hasn't chipped and I've been doing a lot work helping my dad put in a new floor at my Great Auntie's house. My hands have been taking a beating this week, but my nails still look great!


Okay, I don't mean to brag butttttt I feel like I did a pretty good job painting my nails without the tip guides. ;) 


After using this kit, I feel like I'll be wearing french manicures all the time now! It was just so easy to do! 

I got this at Sally's Beauty Supply for around $11. 

Would you try this kit? Tell me in the comments below! :)

Monday Questionnaire: October 21st, 2014

Happy Monday! Oh my it's been a stressful weekend. So on Saturday morning I went out to feed the cats like usual, and saw that Cali wasn't there. I didn't think it was anything because she goes out at night and sometimes doesn't come back until later in the day. I waited all day Saturday, and she never came home. Moving on to today, she's still not here. I don't know where my baby is. I know she's just a farm cat, but she's my baby and I miss her. Hopefully she's alright! I think she should be. And my Grandparents and I drove around the road we live on, and didn't see her. So good news is that she hasn't been hit by a car or anything. So now Louis is feeding Cali's kittens and her own kittens. Oh yeah, I don't think I told y'all that story. Louis is actually Louise. I don't know how I got that confused, but I did LOL. So Louis, I mean Louise has 3 adorable yellow kittens. And I'm so thankful that Louis is taking care of Cali's babies. I was really afraid that she wouldn't. But now Ellie (the calico) has a kitten cold, so we're giving her some medicine for it. Hopefully she gets better soon! This is the kind of stressful stuff that happens when you live on a farm haha! 

Also this weekend I drove around to find fall leaves. I went to one lake and I honestly wasn't impressed withe the leaves. They hadn't changed too much. So then I went to another lake and the trees were changed more.  


1. What is your favorite thing about fall? 

I have SO MANY favorite things. My number one favorite thing (like I mentioned above) is the leaves. The trees are so pretty! 

2. If you could only use one eyeshadow palette for the rest of the year, which one would you use? 

Probably my Urban Decay Naked Original palette. It's my go to fall palette. And Urban Decay is my favorite eyeshadow brand so yeah. :) 

3. Favorite Halloween candy? 

Reeses cups! It's my two favorite things, chocolate and peanut butter. Yum! 

4. Current nail polish:

Right now I'm wearing a french manicure kit that is Orly brand. I'll be doing a review later this week! 

5. What are you having for lunch? 

Ummm not sure yet! Probably salad. I'm trying to eat healthy this week. Key word there is trying

My Week In Photos #72!

Happy Saturday! Where did the week go? Seems like it went by super fast! Or to me it does anyways. I've spent most of my week playing with kittens, which is not a bad way to spend the week if you ask me. ;) I can't believe how fast they're growing! This morning I was out with them, and they've figured out how to go up and down the steps and jump! It just seems like yesterday their little kitten legs were wobbly and figuring out how to walk… Sorry, crazy cat lady moment there! Haha. Not really sure what I have planned for the weekend. I'd like to get out and take some pictures of the fall trees. So I might do that today! What are y'all doing this weekend? Tell me in the comments! :)

Nail Of The Day: Zoya Genevieve



Today I'm here with a nail of the day post! I wanted to share with you one of my new favorite colors. This is Zoya Genevieve. This color is from Zoya's Fall 2014 collection Entice and Ignite. Genevieve is best described as a dark grey. I feel like this color is very opaque! I've had this polish on for about a week now and I haven't had any problems with chipping. 


I got this nail polish at Ulta for around $9. 

What do you guys think of this nail polish? Let me know in the comments! :)

Monday Questionnaire: October 13th, 2014

Happy Monday! Today is such a gloomy Monday. It's rainy and cold. Boo. But I'm going to make the best of the gloomy weather, because I'm going to Bath & Body Works. Candles are 2 for $22 and it's the last day, so I gotta get there fast! Also I have a coupon so even better. :) My weekend was pretty quiet, which was really nice because the last couple of weekends have been crazy. Yes they were fun, but it was nice to just stay home and not do anything. I did go to Starbucks like I told y'all on Saturday that I probably would. I actually went Saturday and Sunday. Don't judge me! Anyways, after this I have to go workout (to burn off my Starbucks drinks!) and then I have to pack. And I hate packing, so that should be a super fun time! 

This weeks picture is a picture of Ellie, Sammy, and Oliver. I get to see these cuties this week and I'm pretty excited! :) 


1. Current favorite lipgloss? 

I've been loving my NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brûlée. It's a super pretty pinky nude. 

2. What's the very first thing you do in the morning? 

I turn off my alarm and check all my social media sites and emails. And I'm usually wishing that I could go back to sleep haha. 

3. Your favorite junk food? 

It's a toss up between chocolate chip cookies and donuts. Both are super yummy!

4. Current nail polish:

Zoya Genevieve. Nail of the day post coming this week! :) 

5. I could never date someone who…

…doesn't love cats.

My Week In Photos #71!

Happy Saturday everyone! I'm so glad it's the weekend. It seems like this week went super slow. I feel like I say this every weekend, but I don't know if I have any plans or not. I don't ever really make plans, I just kind of see where the day takes me. One thing I do know is that I'll be going to Starbucks this weekend for sure. ;)

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen: Review & Swatch!

One of my favorite fall trends has always been the dark lipstick. Today I thought I'd share with you one of my new favorite fall lipsticks. This is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Copenhagen. When you first look at it, it looks pretty dark, and I was a little intimidated by it at first. But after actually seeing it on my lips, it's the perfect shade for fall. 


Copenhagen is a super pretty matte plum. One thing I've always loved about the soft matte lip creams, is that you apply them like a lipgloss but they set like a lipstick. This color also wears really well too. I know I can put this on in the morning and still have color for the rest of the day. Occasionally I'll touch up depending on what lip color I'm wearing. If it's a lighter shade, I'll skip the touch up. 

Here's a swatch!


I thought I'd show you all a picture of what the lip color looks like on me. :) 


I got this at Ulta for around $6.00. You can also find this on the NYX Cosmetics website!
