The Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in the shade Muse was definitely a splurge for me. This long-wear lipstick retails for $28 but I got it for 15% off during the Sephora Chic Week sale. Check out the video below to see if I think it is worth the money!
I know that it has been awhile since my last Nail of the Day post, but I have really just been sticking to what I know in terms of nail polish. The few new shades that I have tried, were either too boring, not pretty enough, or I never got a chance to take pictures of before they chipped. Anyway, today’s nail is Coral Reef and it is apart of the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Line. This is not a new shade for me, but it is one that I love. It is the prettiest bright pinky coral that applies nicely and wears a decent amount of time. The picture above is on my 3rd day of wearing this polish and I think that it held up pretty nicely. With Spring right around the corner, I wanted to get back into some brighter colors.

It’s almost the end of summer so I have been trying to get the last few uses out of my super bright nail polishes before fall hits. China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy is a super bright neon pink with a hint of orange. This shade screams summer! I know this color shows up pretty bright in the picture, but it is even brighter in real life. I love the color of this polish. This is the first time I have worn it on my fingernails and right after I started polishing, I realized why. This took me 3 coats to get completely opaque. Also, because this is a neon, it has a matte finish which I personally am not a fan of. The picture above is shown with a top coat. The other downside of this polish is that it chipped within 24 hours (with a good base and top coat)! In my book, that is totally unacceptable, especially since I didn’t do anything that would normally make my polish chip. I will continue to wear this on my toes, but this is probably the last time it will touch my fingertips.
Have you tried Flip Flop Fantasy? Did you have a similar experience to mine?
Orange and coral lip shades have quickly become my favorite color family. These colors are flattering on all skin tones, but I think even more so on women of color. Check out my video below describing some of my favorite picks. Enjoy!

Today I was in a summery mood so I decided to go with a bright coral. The base color is Revlon’s Electric Pink. This shade went on really easily and opaque. I almost stopped at one coat which is saying a lot for me, I always do two coats. On the ring finger, I layered Essie’s As Gold as it Gets for a little shimmer. This shade is from Essie’s Luxe Effects that came out a few months ago. It is a gold glitter top coat in a clear base. So what do you think? Are you feeling coral for the summer?
