Icing Polish: So Fierce

I have an obsession with the recent type of nail polishes that look like sprinkles suspended in a murky jelly base. At first, it was rare to come upon them. However, now they are quite trendy. This is a cutie I got at Icing…

In the meantime, I am unable to polish my nails, wear perfume or fragrance lotions because of my brother’s fragrance sensitivity. So, I haven’t been able to change my polish as often as I have in the past. I wore this one for about a week and I didn’t mind at all. It’s just that pretty.

Anastasia Beverly Hills: Bold And Beautiful Kit

Well, hello there! Not one to do things in a small way, I have moved from Florida to Denver. Can you say ‘change in climate’? Can you say ‘skin changes!?’ More to come on that experience.

Anastasia Beverly Hills has been giving us a lot of new products. How about that Hypercolor Brow and Hair Powder?!!! I’ll be doing a review on that fun product very soon.

But today, I have a classy kit from Anastasia to show you called Bold and Beautiful. If you like neutral shades yet enjoy the flexibility of going from a soft look on up to something bold, you are going to love this eyeshadow palette. And, if you are looking to create a chic brow, Anastasia has that covered too.

As always, Anastasia Beverly Hills delivers a very beautiful package…

Even though the two shades in the palette look different, they swatch very similar…

The palette got a bit of fall out when I loaded my brush but ,I didn’t get any on my face when I applied it.

Here are swatches of the eye shadows…

This is the type of product I like to use when I need to have a neutral look, whether I’m meeting a client or just running errands for the day. Both palettes are not complicated yet, give me the tools necessary to make a bold and beautiful look.

Anastasia Beverly Hills products can be found at Ulta, Sephora and other fine department stores.
