Tuff Scent – Wish

This is the last Tuff Scent polish from my order. Its not really my thing, but its pretty in the bottle? I put it over Tuff Scent – Inner Strength.

The scent is Pear, which I thought I would hate, but it smells nice!

What do you think? On the nails its a little more yellowy and a lot less pink than it seems in the bottle… must be the angle!

Tuff Scent – Hope

Picking my favorite one was a toss-up between Inner Strength and this one! This was definitely the one I was most in awe over when I saw the bottle.

It reminded me of OPI – My Private Jet but it was a prettier plum-ish brown than MPJ by far! Lots of little holo particles that make it so perfect!!

hope

And again, look at the gorgeous bottle!!

Isn’t that so pretty? 🙂

The scent on this one is China Rain, which didn’t have obvious notes that I can describe, but its nice! Even if this one smelled horrible I’d still love it though. haha!

I’m doing a giveaway with 2 winners, if you’d like to try some of their polish… its here.

One of my best friends had her baby last night so I’m super happy this morning.

Tuff Scent Giveaway!

If you haven’t seen my last post, go see it, I gushed about this brand a lot!

I was going to give away 1 bottle to 2 people, but tuffscent.com was so generous and sent me an extra free bottle, so I’m going to actually choose 2 names and the first winner will get 2 bottles!

They are:
Truth (pineapple kiwi-scented), Guardian Angel (china lily-scented), Wisdom (grapefruit-scented)

When you enter, I’m going to ask you what your top 2 choices would be so that when I pick both names, I’ll try my best to send you what you wanted most.

As always, you get an extra entry for posting about the giveaway, since it helps me connect with more awesome nail polish addicts I wouldn’t get to find any other way! 🙂
Here are a link and picture you can use -> http://shimmerspark.com/posts/tuff-scent-giveaway & http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i378/hollycoffeebean/giveaway-tuffscent.jpg

I’ll end this one on August 31st.

Tuff Scent – Inner Strength

Ahhhhh I love this brand! I must gush for a minute… they have gorgeous bottles, awesome polish, they smell SO good, they sell their polish on their site, they ship fast, they wrap every bottle with more bubble wrap than I’ve ever seen used, and their representatives (Sylvie was the one I talked to a few times) are so SO generous and concerned with how happy you are.

You can buy them here -> http://tuffscent.com/

My next post will actually be a giveaway post for some of these. I wanted to do 3 bottles but have 2 winners (top prize is 2, next prize is 1), so I can show at least 2 of you how cool these are!

Okay onto my favorite one from my first order… Inner Strength! The scent is Almond and it has a perfect sweet almond oil smell like that CND Solar Oil has, only more cookie-like if that makes sense. I wish they made a perfume like this, I’d wear it every day. YUM.

I love dark taupe polishes and this one is unique compared to my others because its glossy! It has a jelly-ish look with one coat but not thick enough to be a jelly… then after another coat its just a nice glossy finish that I don’t have with my other taupes.

More swatches to come, but its time to go make my giveaway post. 😀

Color Club – Yum Gum vs. Modern Pink and MAC lip gloss ingredient lists!

These are the two hot pinks I have from Color Club that are a plain creme.

Yum Gum on the left two nails and Modern Pink on the right two:

Its hard to tell a difference really! I took one in a dark corner of my room because I think in the shade is where you can see Yum Gum pops a little more…

If you wanted this color and couldn’t decide which to get, get Yum Gum because it smells so heavenly!!!!

Okay, so on to the MAC lip glosses! I LOVE their lip glosses. Especially the black line!

It is the only formula that doesn’t dry my lips out, it stays on, its nice and smooth, doesn’t have any negatives for me whatsoever! Since I like to try and make my perfect colors out of frankens at times, I wanted to go on TKB Trading and get some mixes. (If you do this, get the rum or pecan flavor oils, holy crap they make it smell sooo good!) I wanted to find the MAC ingredient list so I could pick the same base, but I couldn’t find an updated ingredient list anywhere!

I asked them on their site and it took them weeks to get back to me, but this morning I finally had the ingredient lists!

I am putting it here in case it will be of use to anyone else. 🙂

Anna Sui Polishes

I really only bought these because I had to have the bottles… aren’t those so precious!?

Then I was surprised by the polish! I didn’t know this was one of the features but it smells like roses!!! It smells so good!

This one is called Snow (or 013). It is a sheer, shimmery white with some flashes of red and I think I notice a little flash of blue too?

Even the top of the bottle looks like a rose!

This is the 2nd one I got. It is called Sky (or 107). It is blue with glitter and large square chunks of silver glitter too!

You can get these online at Urban Outfitters or of course you can search on ebay or for a swap!
