Duh-Nail Polish

           Today I have a fantastic collection for you that doubles for 2 purposes! It is by Duh Nail Polish, owned by Danyl. There are 5 colors to the collection( She threw in one that's not from the collection too!) that is a halloween collection called "Oh Happy Days" and 4 of the colors double for football teams! Even more awesome!

First is "Simply Gourd-gous", a stunning orangish red polish with red flakies that I could not capture! Very easy formula, not that sheer, not that thin! This is 3 coats. Ring finger is matte.  (Excuse my thumb :P)

Next is "The Cauldron Bubbled Over". A squishy black jelly with circles, hexes, squares, and all sorts of glitters! It was hard to capture all of the glitters in this one! This was a little thick. 3 coats, but you can layer over black for more opacity. This doubles as the Ravens color! Ring finger is matte.

Third is "The Cat's Meow". This is so pretty! 4 types of glitters, which all come together to create this white crelly! One of my favorites, this is 3 coats by its own with my ring finger matte. This doubles for The Steelers color!

Next is "Ghouls Drool", a yellow jelly with lots of glitters. This wasn't my favorite just because yellow isn't my favorite color but it still made an impression on me! 2 coats on its own with my ring finger matte. This doubles for The Packers!

Fourth is " Ghosts in the Graveyard", a beautiful grey crelly with shards of silver glitters, hexes and much more! My favorite of the collection, because I barely have any greys! This is 2 coats on its own, with my ring finger matte. 

Last, is "Oodles of Sprinkles". *jaw drops. A beautiful white crelly with bunches of neon glitters! This is 2 coats and not in the collection with the rest. My ring finger is matte. 

These polishes were fabulous! Some were sticky but it all makes up for it with their beauty! These are available here. (buy them). Thank you Danyl!

Dove VoxBox

    Recently I received the Dove VoxBox from Influenster, which contained the Dove Advanced Care deodorant! It is white with a lovely scent.
  On the packaging it says it will last for 48 hours, but that was not what I experienced. The time that it lasted for on me was about 32 hours.  I wore this everyday for a week, to get the best results. The anti-perpirant is white itself but shows up transparent on your arms.


  • transparent
  • long-lasting
  • easy to apply
  • doesn't leave my arms sweaty

  • not lasting for all 48 hours
Overall, the deodorant was very good and I will be using it a lot! I think this will now be my main deodorant because it is great!I do recommend this deodorant because it is wonderful!

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Bliss Polish: SoA

Hello everyone, today I have more Bliss Polish for you! These are from the Sons Of Anarchy collection. This collection launches 10/11! I have Gemma, Jax, and Mayhem!

From left to right: Mayhem, Gemma, Jax.

First, the first thing that I thought of when I read the name of this polish was this: 
Mayhem!! If you haven't seen these commercials, you are missing out. They are by Allstate Insurance. So go watch them. Well,  now we can start. 

 Source: watch them now

First, is "Mayhem". Just wow. A STUNNING black holo! This is now in my top 10 polishes! ( Sorry OPI Man With The Golden Gun) This is 2 coats. Great formula, and I'm never taking this off! 

Next is "Jax". Oh Jax, how I love you. AMAZING. A b-e-a-u-tiful grey  matte polish with awesome HOLO and metally goodness. This is 2 stunning coats. Along side "mayhem" in my  top 10 polishes.

no topcoat. 

With topcoat. 

Last one, I promise. This is "Gemma". Um, HELLO GORGEOUS. A dark red to bright red thermal??! How amazing is that!!?! Bright, candy apple red when hot, to an amazing burgundy when cold. The change from hot to cold doesn't stay very long, so thats why some of the pictures have water spots on them. 2 coats!

Sweet Therapy Shop!

Today, I have Sweet Therapy nail lacquers, body scrubs and frostings. She is the sweetest person and also makes the sweetest things! 

First I have "Pining for Love". This is a beautiful,  rustic purple with small gold flakes.  This is 2 coats, even though these polishes were very pigmented and could have passed for one. This is with an accent nail of OPI "Designer, de better!" Very easy to apply, but hard to get off.

Next is " Oh Pope!". This is a bright red that has beautiful gold and pink flakies, and covers in 1 coat!  This is showing way brighter than it is, and you can only see the pink flakies. I did a very bad maple leaf accent nail with this polish. Again, very smooth and easy but hard to get off. 

Third, I have " Pink Melody". This is a wonderful magenta polish with pink flakies, and here I have it with a lightning accent nail with some sponging with "Pining for Love". This is 1 easy coat, and again, it was hard to remove. 

Last, I have "Gladiator in a skirt". When I first got this polish, I didn't know if was spectra-flairly! This is 2 easy coats. I paired this with Essie "Butler Please" and GG Couture " Genevive". This is such a beautiful polish and my favorite of these 4!

Now I have a sugar scrub and a body frosting! 

First, I have the sugar scrub. The smell is "Peach and Mango" ( I've never reviewed any thing besides polish, so bear with me.) I waited a week or so to review it so I could have full results. I put it onto my left hand every night after I washed my hands. This leaves your skin smelling so good, and feeling really soft! It's not oily and doesn't leave your hand greasy. Very natural and organic!I love the color and smell, and would totally buy this when I run out! This is an amazing scrub, and I would completely recommend it.

Lastly I have the "Sweet Amor" body frosting. Look at how amazing this is! Smells like heaven in a jar! I opened it up and I just get this sweet aroma. Its so fluffy and light, I just wanted to dive right into it! I put a teaspoon on my right hand every night, and my hand has been so smooth and soft. I love this frosting so much! I will totally buy it again. 

Overall, these polishes and scrubs are amazing! My only problems with the polishes were that they were very hard to remove. I use cotton balls in acetone, and I had to scrub a little bit to get it off. These are fine for people who keep their polish on for longer than I do, but I swatch everyday, so I did not appreciate that aspect. But, these polishes and scrubs overall were amazing!!! She has a variety of smells, and of colors. You can purchase these products on her etsy on Thursday, October 3rd. I loved these products and hope to have some more!
