Nailtopia Blue-tiful Daze Holiday Kit

Hey everyone! Hope you had a safe and nice Thanksgiving. We stayed home and had a little Thanksgiving for the two of us. I made a mini charcuterie board for lunch (yum!) and then for dinner we had sweet potato casserole, cornbread stuffing, and chicken marsala since we don't like turkey. I've definitely enjoyed having the four day weekend to recover from a super busy couple weeks at work.

Today I'm sharing with you a cute little holiday nail polish kit from Nailtopia, which would make a great gift this season. There are two kits available in red and blue, and you can find them both at Ulta for $14.99 ($25 value!) I received the Blue-tiful Daze Holiday Kit from Nailtopia Beauty as a member of their Nailtopia Maven Program.

The Blue-tiful Daze Holiday Kit includes three 0.17 oz mini nail polishes:
  • Hula Girl - sky blue creme
  • Blue-tiful Daze - blue and silver glitter
  • Ride the Wave - royal blue shimmer

The kit itself is encased in a BIODEGRADABLE, reusable bag made 100% from recycled materials! Perfect for storing lip balm, gloss, concealer, and other little items for on the go. The new white caps on the bottle are also recyclable. These polishes are 100% vegan, cruelty free, non-toxic, and all free.

Another really cool thing I want to note is that Blue-tiful Daze is the first ever biodegradable, bio-sourced glitter, which is derived from cotton. These glitter particles dissipate naturally back into nature to reduce waste, whereas most nail lacquer glitters contain tiny bits of plastic that never fully break down. This glitter also requires NO extra soaking to remove!

All three polishes were easy to apply - even the glitter was opaque in two coats! It's nice to see a company come out with a nail polish set that those of us who celebrate Hanukkah can use :)

Hope you have a great week!

Nailtopia Smokey Road Glow

Hey everyone! Hope you had a fun and safe Halloween weekend. We're not really into Halloween, but we grabbed some BOGO candy at CVS and then watched the most recent Purge movie (pretty good!)

Today I'm sharing a Nailtopia duo called Smokey Road Glow. I received this product from Nailtopia Beauty as a member of their Nailtopia Maven Program. This duo retails for $10 and you can find it at Ulta or on Nailtopia's website.

Smokey Road Glow is a "2 Bottles, 3 Looks" kit, which means you can create 3 looks with the two polishes. Smokey Road is a beautiful grayish purple creme and Hampton Glow is a sparkly champagne - I used two coats of each. When you apply Hampton Glow on top of Smokey Road, it creates this gorgeous sparkly silvery purple color. I think the combo of both is my favorite, but the colors each look nice on their own!

Have a great week and stay safe!
