Shades of Blu

Inspiration: January 2015 Ipsy Bag (clicking will take you through my referral link)

Products: Zoya Blu, Probelle Into the Blue, Sally Hansen HD Blu

Thoughts: I have loved blue nail polish since I first saw it in the 90s.  This Probelle polish is a great blue for every day wear.  The formula might be a little watery, but it does last.  While I have a ton of blues in my collection, I went with the other two because they have the same name!

Rose Among the Thorns

Inspiration: January 2015 Rainbow Honey Mini Mystery Bag  

Products: Rainbow Honey Lemon Sorbet, Dirty Martini, Rosey Bot

Thoughts: Rosey Bot is such an awesome and on trend color.  I especially like how it looks topped with Lemon Sorbet which gives it a subtle yellow shimmer.  Dirty Martini is fun, but looks more like mint chocolate chip ice cream than a dirty martini.  The January 15 Rainbow Honey mystery bag also included a lip scrub, spa soap, and lip balm, all in Lemon Sorbet.

In the Box: January 2015 Ipsy

It has been almost a year since I have received nail polish in my Ipsy bag (clicking will take you through my referral link), but I was lucky enough to score some this month.  I have never heard of Probelle, but this Into the Blue shade is pretty nice.  One coat was really thin, but two seems to cover nicely.
What other goodies did I get? Elizabeth Mott All Over Shadow Brush, Hikari Eye Liner in Storm, (Malin + Goetz) Mojito Lip Balm, Pacifica Natural Mineral Coconut Eyeshadow in Ethereal

Inspiration: January 2015 Julep Maven Box (clicking will take you through my referral link)

Products: Julep Sandi and Bjork

Thoughts: Julep said they had a new top coat that will change the color of any nail, and they were right.  The top picture shows Sandi by itself (it's more purple in real life).  The bottom shows with a coat of Bjork.  What was a smoky purple turns into a lovely duochrome of sparkly blue/teal and iridescent purple.

In the Box: January 2015 Julep Maven

Normally I go for Modern Beauty for my Julep box here (clicking will take you through my referral link), but for January, it included the new Luxe Lip and Brilliance.  I have so many Brilliance, that I have been giving them away.  I opted for the Bombshell box which had Sandi, a lovely smokey grape creme.  Also, if you clicked through an email last month, you were able to get a free random Metamorphic Top Coat.  The color I received was Bjork.
What other goodies did I get?  Luxe Lip in Sheer Fig, Gel Eye Glider in Navy Smoke.
