OPI You Don't Know Jacques

I think I'm going to continue to keep my nails short with an overlay. They don't look as hoochie and the color lasts longer with the acrylic. My manicurist asked me, "Who did this to your nails?" As in, who did this jank file job on them? See previous nail post on 9/11. Haha! In keeping with the gray color scheme, I chose OPI's You Don't Know Jacques. I love this color!

It's a muddier gray. Very much like wet cement.

Here are my nails compared to Julep's Toni.

Toni is much lighter and has more of a purple tint to it. Both are beautiful, but I think I'll be sticking to OPI for awhile. What are you wearing on your nails for Fall?

Throwback to the 80's

If you want frosted lips, get this Softlips. Tickled Pink is not an accurate color description at all. I was hoping for a lightly tinted balm, but got this smear of frost that reminded me of one of my first Wet'nWild lipsticks that I thought was so cool back in 7th grade. Meehhhh. I'll stick to the plain Softlips sans color.

get fresh SPA Lemongrass Dry Oil Body Spray

Received this bottle of get fresh SPA Lemongrass Dry Oil Body Spray from my director C along with some other goodies for my bday. I love dry oil body sprays, especially in the summer because they make your skin soft & glowy without loading on heavy lotion. My fave dry oil spray is discontinued and I have been using my reserves sparingly. This has a light citrus scent that smells a little reminiscent of Pledge at first, but smells like faint lemons when it dries. I'll probably save this for spring & summer use because I need heavier creams in the fall & winter when my skin is drier. If you like light moisture, this would be great. A bit on the steep side in price, so if you can sample it before buying, do it to see if you like it.

Price: $22.50
Where To Buy: & some salons/spas carry the line (Prosports Club in WA)

NOTW: Short & Toni

I am tired of the long frenchies and may just keep my nails short for fall/winter with an overlay and dark colors. I had this obnoxious peachy pink that was somewhat cheap looking on the tips, but may have looked good on the toes. I had OPI's Makes Men Blush earlier this week, but that didn't look right either. Filed them short this morning and painted them Julep's Toni. Much better. Bu-bye summer frenchy talons.

Drugstore Shampoo: Approved!

Must be all silicones coating my hair, but this shampoo & conditioner are tops in my book right now. From the scent to the way my hair felt after, it's all good. And the best part, the shampoo, conditioner and hairspray were $2.99! Recessionista in full effect. Thank you Target!
