Braid Out Experiment

I decided to try a braid out after seeing how gorgeous Makeupanbeautyjunkie’s was on YouTube. (Click here to check her video out). I wasn’t 100% pleased with the results, but I didn’t hate them either. I will say that the later it got in the day after I took the braids out, the better I liked it. Take a look at my latest shopaHAULism post if you would like to see what it looked like by the end of that day. The video below shows how I achieved my first braid out using Qhemet Biologics Alma & Olive Heavy Cream.

What are some of your tips to getting a fluffy (not frizzy) braid out?

Nail of the Day: China Glaze Kalahari Kiss

It’s been awhile since my last post, sorry about that! I’ve had some things going on in my personal life that made me not feel like blogging, but I’m back now! I decided to ease my way into things with a Nail of the Day post. Today’s nail polish is Kalahari Kiss by China Glaze. It is limited edition and came out with one of their fall lines. At this time, it is still available in stores.

In my opinion, this is a very unique shade. At first glance it might look like just another nude, but in different lights, it looks different. It tends to lean olive greeen or mustard yellow, I can’t decide which one more. The formula of this shade was very nice, not thick or thin. Sometimes I find China Glaze polishes to be slightly thick, but this one was perfect. The color was also relatively opaque and I used 2 coats. Overall, I do like the polish, but it is not my favorite. The shade is just a little strange. I do think it would make a great base for a gold or silver glitter top coat and it also is a nice fall nude.

What do you think of this shade? Do you have a go-to nude polish for fall?

Staple Hair Product Review Series: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Argan & Olive Oil Daily Hair Conditioner

Today I’m reviewing one of my leave-in conditoners, Curl Junkie Beauticurls Argan & Olive Oil Daily Conditioner. This conditioner can be used as a leave-in or rinse out conditioner, however I only use it as a leave-in. I’m sure it works great as a rinse out conditioner, but with it being $19 for 12 fl  oz, it’s a little too expensive for me to be rinsing out :). This conditioner can be purchased at http://www.curljunkie.com or http://www.aveyou.com.
