Wet N Wild Spring 2015 LE Silver Lake Eyeshadow Collection

I had to stop by Walgreens this afternoon and was so excited to see several of the 2015 Spring Limited Edition Wet N Wild palettes. I snagged the two I had been lusting after, so check out the swatches below. Each shadow is buttery smooth and super pigmented. I'm in love!

The ones I snagged were Vinyl Collection, and Thrift Store Chic. Pricing was $3.99 each.

Vinyl Collection

Thrift Store Chic
The dark purple color in Thrift Store Chic is the most interesting shade of the bunch. It's a bit of purple and a bit of pink in the finish. Can't wait to play around with it!

Miche Bags


My mom held a party for Miche bags and brought me in on video chat. This is one of those direct sales type things like Tupperware or Mary Kay. Miche is all about options and creating interchangeable bags.

My mom bought me what you're about to see (or got it because she was the hostess). The combination retails for about $120

I chose the "Prima" size, their largest.

Here's the Prima "base" and and straps. The base is machine washable.

Here's one of the Prima "Shells": 

And the other, shell, this one is called Hope:

Here's the interior. The flaps are magnetic and are designed to snap onto the base.

Putting the base into the shell:

Putting the hardware on:

The straps in place:

The final product. Neat? Sure!


The idea of interchangeable handbags is neat, the price steap. I'm happy with what I've got but I wouldn't have paid for it myself. Then again, I don't spend a lot of money on purses. Maybe $120 is a good deal.

Glitter Polish Removers


Melissa is a glitter polish lover, but as for me, I avoid them like the plague. They're so hard to remove. So when she and I saw a few posts and videos about different removers, I decided to try them.

The first one is 1st Acetone Power No-Rub Gel stuff in the bright pink container. It was under $4 at Walmart.

The second is Glitter Nail Polish Remover Gel by Vi-Jon in the box, it, too was under $4 at Walmart.

Here's what was in the box:

We both saw posts that said this stuff was super easy and worked like a breeze.

I tried the No-Rub Gel first, and over two days. Here's the results of the first attempt, after dipping my fingers into the gel and waiting four minutes (as directed):

That looks almost great, right? 

Wellll...it had a bit of a side effect. The paper towels stuck to my fingers. Everything stuck to my fingers where the gel had been.

The rest of the glitter came off with some heavy scraping. I had to soap my hands twice to get the stuff off, and even then I still had spots leftover.

Day two

Here's the before, "too dimensional?" polish by l'oreal. This polish has a sandy finish with glitter, for a rough removal job.

The index finger on my left hand with the 1st Acetone Power No-Rub Gel again (the one in the pink).

The after:

Some stickiness, but not as bad:

The other hand with the Glitter Nail Polish Remover Gel (the one in the box) on all fingers (I promise its on there). As directed it said to leave it on for two minutes:

The after:

After a second application of 1st Acetone Power No-Rub Gel:

There wasn't stickiness, and it smelled decent, but as you can see, it didn't really do much except for on my index finger.


Don't waste your money on these, though if you're desperate to try one, go with the pink.

As far as me, I'll still avoid glitter polish.

Julep March Box


For March's box I used up Julep points to get three add-ons. And so they sent me a freebie. Hooray for freebies.

The box itself came with three polishes...at least that is how I arranged it. Here's what I picked:

Prosecco silk (semi-matte opalescent)
Iced chai chrome

Kelly green and gold coin multi-dimensional, full coverage glitter


For the add-ons, I picked:

Get In Line Invisible Lip Liner
Fluid Eye Glider
CTRL + Z Eye Makeup Eraser

The freebie I got as a result of picking three add-ons was "Francis"
which is described as "Celery green crème"

Here's what the add-ons looked like out of their boxes:

And swatches of the polishes:


Jahnavi swatch:

Francis swatch
(two coats on pinky and middle finger, one coat on the others)

Francis with Lucky on top:

My favorite in this box? 
The Silk Finish polish, Marcy. 
You can't tell from the swatch, but it's covers decently considering it's so pale, and it dries to a neat "silk" finish.

That said, I haven't tried the add-ons yet, so they might be awesome. As usual, if they are, I'll do another post.
