Nails! Links! And Forever 21 Love & Beauty Polish


So this is a little bit random because I just worked out and my brain is all supa-charged!

First of all, I noticed last week just how much more polished my nails look when I have a nice cream color on them~

Secondly, I mentioned this brand of polish here, but I want to point out that this is the BEST for a neutral shade~ it covers very well in just ONE coat, is chip-resistant, and dries quickly! Also, the brush is outstanding because it covers the entire nail in one sweep. It's flat and fans out nicely~ how awesome is that!?

But it made me wonder if you all wear polish for special occasions, depending on your mood, all the time, etc.? Leave me some comments, I'm really curious to know!

Thirdly, while at Forever 21 in the check-out line, I noticed some nail polishes from their new Love and Beauty line for $2.50 and decided to give one a go. The shade I chose is called "Jade."

One coat:

Two coats:

Isn't that amazing coverage for just 1 coat?? I was really impressed because I thought it would be thin and I'd have to do at least 3 coats to get a decent color. It actually reminds me of Revlon polishes~ the brush is the same and it has a nice even, shiny finish. Good job, Forever 21!! And it's a nice Christmas-y green, which makes me smile!! =D

Also, I wanted to share links to the blogs I love since you might have some free time to explore this week. =)

Karen is SO GREAT with her reviews~ she's a big-time blogger so she gets the products a lot of times before they're out to the public. She has multiple posts a day and is basically everything I want to be in life, haha!
