My Take On: Ciate Offshore

Hi guys! With summer just around the corner I am starting to grab all of my fun, bright summer shades! Today I have Ciate Offshore, a nice bright royal blue. It applied really nicely, only needing 2 coats to be completely opaque. I can't wait to use this for some nail art!!

Review: Norvell DWTS Airbrush Tan

Hi guys! If you've checked out many of my blog posts, you already know I'm devastatingly pale. I swear I have tried every self-tanner on the planet! A few times I have splurged a bit more and gone for a real air-brush tan. And I mean the type where someone uses an airbrush gun on your skin precisely, not a machine that does it. So far, this is the only way I've gotten a desirable outcome. I received Norvell's Airbrush Tan Spray from their Dancing With The Stars line and I was a bit nervous to try a spray vs. many of the lotions and cremes I've tried before. After exfoliating in the shower, I hopped back in, used the supplied nose filters, and got started. It was surprisingly easy to use, and the smell was much more of a natural scent, not too flavored like fake vanilla or coconut. The best part was, this dried instantly! For areas of mine that typically have issues like knees and feet, I used my hands to rub in the spray to avoid streaks.

Normally I avoid self-tanning because it makes me so hot to have a thick lotion on all of my body, but this was not the case. I went about my day as normal and could instantly see results. By the next morning my skin was even darker, and as the directions stated, the initial bronze washed off in the shower, but a distinct tan stayed on my skin for several days. I'd definitely recommend this! You can check out these products here:

Festival Nail Art: Faby Footprints on the Beach & Venique Up To My Knees

Hey guys! Have a fun summery festival-inspired look for you! I started with Faby Footprints on the Beach, and added tribal inspired stripes with Venique Up To My Knees. I just used a small nail art brush to create this look. So easy, and perfect for Coachella, Hangout Fest, or any music festival you're heading to this year!

My Take On: Real Purity Lotion + Roll-on Deodorant

Hey guys! Today I'm reviewing some products from Real Purity. When I first received this products I was a little skeptical as I wasn't familiar with the brand. But seriously, this Velvet Glove has become my favorite lotion ever! I was lucky enough to get two bottles to sample and I had to give one to my husband because he kept asking me to use it. It's so thick and great for winter cracked hands, or for anytime! The roll-on deodorant is also great and has a nice, neutral scent. These products are all-natural and sometimes that simplicity makes products so much better, like in this case.
