BA STAR Smoky Eye Shadow Palettes

I have a big love for polish, obviously. But I also have a love of makeup. I've always been a girly girl. So occasionally, I share a little about my other beauty love.

BA STAR let me know about their new eye shadow palettes. There are four different palettes to choose from. Each comes with five shades, three high pigment matte shadows and two gel glitter highlighters.

The palettes look gorgeous! I'm still trying to decide which one to order. I'm leaning toward the blue to play up my blue eyes. Each palette retails for $8.75. I have a code to share with you all, for 50% off. BBSMOKY. Visit BA STAR to see the palettes available.

Cats Galore! Born Pretty Stamping Plate Review

I hope you are enjoying your Thursday! If you love cats, I've got the stamping plate for you. I got my first kitten when I was barely three years old, so needless to say, I love cats.

I used all twelve designs to show you what each image looks like. The designs transfer easily, with nice crisp lines. I love the addition of feathers! They definitely go along nicely with cats. I got a little colorful with the cats, but kept them within natural fur colors. I used Love My Nails Angel (base), NYC Times Square Tangerine (orange), China Glaze Mahogany Magic (brown), Essence Stamp Me! Black, Konad Yellow, Ulta The Jungle Look (green), Blue Streak, Sally Hansen Raspberry Race, and Julep Alyson.

I love these designs! Particular the ones on my left middle, right ring, and thumb. Very cute kitties. And clearly defined.

This particular plate (Item ID: 4856) retails for $2.99 on Born Pretty Store, as well as all other single plates this size. They have a lot of fun designs to add some fun to your nails. Shipping is always free worldwide. You can also use my coupon code AHL91 to save 10% on your order.

Zoya Nyx

I hope you are enjoying your Monday! Today I have a beautiful textured polish to share with you.

Zoya Nyx is a perwinkle matte glitter with silver sparkle. It literally looks like pixie dust was sprinkled atop a matte periwinkle backdrop. So many nail polish brands are hopping on the textured wagon. The Pixie Dust Collection was the first to really catch by eye. The application is perfection and opaque in two coats. The finish is textured. It doesn't snag on hair or anything else. The directions say to apply with no base coat or top coat. I was a little worried about the wear time with no top coat. But Nyx surprised me. I was extremely hard on my nails the two days I wore it. No tip wear or chips.

Nyx is part of the Zoya Pixie Dust Collection and retails for $9 on Zoya. It also recently started showing up at Ulta for the same price. Zoya is releasing brighter Pixie Dust polishes for the Summer.
