Crazy for Corals!!

Its no secret that I have become "slightly" obsessed with Corals this Spring (which I have no doubt will continue into summer!). Coral Lips, Cheeks, Eyes, and my most favorite place to where corals, NAILS. I feel as though I have become compelled to collect all coral nail polishes I can, from every brand. Every time I pick a new one up, I have to stop and ask myself..."is this like any of the others I have?" and then I think, "Who am I kidding, I need it anyway". Yes, obsessed. Below are the 5 I currently have in my collection. As you can see, I am happy to report that no 2 look the same. Although they all fit the description of "Coral", they are all different and unique in their own way. I often get asked which I recommend or my absolute favorite, and there is no question that Essie's Van D'Go is definitely the one that ALWAYS comes to mind, and the one I recommend to EVERYONE! Its a very opaque and pastel peachy coral and I am in love with it! It will be on my toes all summer. It has happily taken the place of OPIs Mod About You!

CG Peachy Keen, Essie Tart Deco, Color Club Coral Cascade, Essie Van D'Go, Orly Lollipop

Same order as above (starting with the thumb)

So my question is....Is there a Coral nail polish that I am missing in my collection?!

EOTD (Eye of the Day)

I used my new Glamour Doll Eye Shadows for the first time today and just had to take pictures because I am SO in love with how my eyes turned out....wow a little full of myself there? I promise I*m not, its just been a while since I did a "netural eye" that I really loved so I was quite happy! Here are some pictures:

Caution, Eyebrow FAIL! Thats what I get for going to someone different than my friend who normally does them....Like I said in my eyebrow video...find 1 person to do them and STICK to them! Now comes the fun part of growing them back in =)
"He Loves me Not" all over the lid, "Boyfriend Sweater" on the outer 1/4, "Chocoholic" in the crease and "Brown Eyed Girl" under the lower lash line.

Look at the sparkle in the inner corner...AMAZING!

I am honestly SO pleased with these shadows, they are so gorgeous, have amazing pigmentation, go on like silk, blend like a dream, and stay put all day! I am writing this post at 10:40pm and you would never know it judging from my eye shadow. The owner of Glamour Doll Eyes (Shout out to Vee!) was so sweet to offer to send them to me to review. My review has yet to come (it will be in a video), but I can't wait for it, you girls (well my neutral gals anyway) are going to feel the need to get these babys and add them to your collection PRONTO!

Yellow Nails?

When I first bought this color I thought, GORGEOUS! But I feel its a bit of a different story on the nails....I really can't decide how much or how little I like it. The application was incredibly streaky, but once it was layered it gave a more "opaque" and creamy finish. However, you can tell from the pictures that not every nail applied as perfectly as the rest. I do think its a pretty color and I don't mind it so much, however it is definitely not a color I will be keeping on my nails and toes all summer. This is one of those colors that unfortunately won't look great on everyone, as I wouldn't recommend this color for fair/pale skin tones as I feel it would make you hands look washed out. This will definitely look AWESOME on more tan and golden skin tones for sure. So get your spray tans on before you pick up a bottle of Lemon Fizz =)
