Summer is finally here and I’m so excited about it. What I love most about this time of the year is spending my weekends at the beach, enjoying warm weather, swimming in the ocean and watching beautiful sunsets. I also love wearing brighter color clothes, which I’m sure most of us ladies do, especially sun dresses.
Lately, I’ve been loving painting my nails. I have so many different colors of nail polishes in my collection that I have decided to do a post every Saturday to introduce you to some of my old and new favorite brands. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it!
Today, I’m reviewing Nicole by OPI Carnival Cotton Candy!
If you’re into Barbie pinks, I have no doubt that you’ll be thrilled with Nicole by OPI Carnival Cotton Candy. It has sweetness in spades! It’s a perfect color for summer, has a smooth, creme finish that’s very easy to work with. If you don’t already have a staple pink in your collection, this is a great one to pick up.
As with most cremes, this one was no exception – it glided on very easily, and I only needed two coats to achieve complete opacity.
The formula is especially great for those who may be new to the nail world. When you’re using something as creamy as this one, you can concentrate more on your application technique and less time struggling with a bad formula. You can think of this like nail-polish ‘training wheels’ in a way!

After a busy, long day the only thing you want to do is jump into bed and get some shuteye. But before hitting the light switch, here are a few things you should do before you go to bed.
Having a nighttime ritual can help you sleep better, and it can get your next day off to a good start.
I don’t blame you if you not ready to fully embrace the “no makeup” makeup trend, but be warned: The new foundation formulas cover everything you want to cover (pores, redness, general blah-ness) without any heaviness and make you look so well rested and glowy that you might find you just don’t need anything else.
Best Full Coverage
Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer – $27 – www.clinique.com
I love this foundation. You just need a little bit for full coverage, and I will say this is best for people with oily acne-prone skin or have blemishes (like me) because it covers them up really well.
NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation – $48 – www.narscosmetics.com
I was anxious to try this insanely expensive makeup. I got a bit of a deal on ebay but it was still very pricey. After some experimenting, I finally got this to work. It comes with a very nice foundation brush. It works the best when using beauty blender sponge. Also, you have to apply primer before applying foundation. I’ve learned that once you take the time to apply this foundation it leaves you with a beautiful complexion. Skin looks rested, perfectly natural, flawless and glowy, and you only need a very small amount to cover your entire face.
Maybelline Fit Me! Dewy + Smooth Foundation – $8 – available at mass retailers nationwide.
I know people say to avoid this foundation if you have oily skin, but I can’t help but want to use it. It gives the most beautiful dewy glow and I always get compliments with this foundation. If your not too worried about the longevity of the foundation, I would definitely recommend this. It does help a bit if you use a matte powder on top but it does remove a bit of the dewiness. The packaging is a bit bland and I don’t like the fact there is no pump, but overall for a drugstore foundation it is worth the money.
for photos. This gives a medium coverage and makes my skin look flawless. You do have to work quite quickly with it as it drys quite fast but it doesn’t transfer. It does not give your face a lift but it does look great on your skin. I find apply with a stippling brush best for a smooth application.
I have extremely oily and acne prone skin and I always wanted to try this product. I honestly fell in love with it! I’ve had it since December and I still have sooo much left over so it definitely lasts a long time. If you have oily or acne prone skin…I definitely recommend this product!
