Butter London Stiletto Stick Hydrating Heel Balm

Butter London Stiletto Stick Hydrating Heel Balm ($30) Stiletto Stick is a hydrating balm to soften and smooth your heels without leaving an oily feel on the skin. Dry, cracked areas will fade away, offering instant relief that keeps heels soft with continued use.

My Thoughts:

I’ll have to admit my first thought was “Did I just spend $30 for some feet balm?!” I was seriously contemplating about returning it, but I decided I should give it a try. Who knows. It might be a holy grail product. What attracted me to the Stiletto Stick is the packaging. I love the idea of the stick. It’s like a deodorant stick. You just twist the bottom to get more. I don’t have to touch my feet to rub on the balm. I just rub the balm directly to wherever I want it. No mess at all. My heels aren’t the prettiest. They take quite a beating from all the sandals and flip flip wearing I do so when I noticed how soft my feet felt after just one use, I was hooked. I apply the balm at night before I go to bed, and when I wake up, my feet are soft and smooth. The Stiletto Stick is very moisturizing, and doesn’t leave a greasy mess. I’m not sure how quickly the balm is absorbed, because I put it on before I climb into bed. I noticed a little goes a long way so $30 doesn’t sound so much anymore, because I can see the gigantic (almost 2 inches in diameter!) Stiletto Stick lasting almost forever.

Batiste Dry Shampoo Dark and Deep Brown Review

Share

Batiste Dry Shampoo Dark and Deep Brown ($8.99) Batiste Dark and Deep Brown banishes oily roots and boosts body giving dull, lifeless hair the make over it needs without any water. A hint of colour complements dark and deep brown hair tones and helps blend in root re-growth of coloured or tinted hair. A quick burst revitalizes hair leaving it feeling clean and fresh. No need to worry about skipping a shampoo.

My Thoughts:

I love the Batiste Dry Shampoo Dark and Deep Brown! I love it so much more than I love the Original Batiste. The dark and deep brown performs just as well as the original. It absorbed the oil in my hair and left my fair feeling soft. What makes me love the dark and deep brown more than the original is that it is dark and deep brown. The dry shampoo matches the color of my hair much better than the original. With the original, I had to make sure I didn’t spray too much and/or I brushed my hair really well to disperse the dry shampoo to get rid of the white cast. The dark and deep brown version I don’t have to worry as much. If you have dark colored hair, I would recommend the Dark and Deep Brown over the Original.

Butter London in Sprog Review, Photos, and Swatch

Share

Butter London in Sprog ($14) Butter London 3 Free Nail Lacquers are DPB, Toulene and formaldehyde free.

My Thoughts:

Butter London in Sprog is a periwinkle shade with a hint of lavender.  Sprog has a creamy formula that goes on really easily and smoothly. You don’t need more than two coats to get full opacity. It’s a fun color that isn’t too bright and still looks classy at the same time. It kind of reminds me of a snowy winter day. Sprog is a shade exclusive to Ulta. So it can only be found at Ulta or through Butter London. I really like Butter London’s Sprog. I don’t own a shade that is a dupe for it and I find it quite unique.

Bundle Monster Nail Stamping Plate Zipper Leather Case Organizer Review and Photos

Share

Bundle Monster Nail Stamping Plate Zipper Leather Case Organizer ($14.99) We have the ultimate storing solution for your Bundle Monster nail stamping plates – we have designed our exclusive stamping plate zippered organizer! This portfolio styled case has a modern shiny vinyl, faux-croc skin textured outter cover with a soft velvet-like lining. This holder includes 14 soft, matte, see-through vinyl pages that have 6 slots per page. Each slot is designed and is strong enough to hold 2 plates per slot, which gives you 168 plate storage! Each slot fits a standard 5.6 cm nail plate and has a U-grooved design to make putting in and pulling out nail plates that much easier. Its portfolio design is slender and thin which makes storing the case easy for tight storage or easy to pick up and go for your nail parties. This case is also great for professional settings like a nail salon. The front of the case has the official “BM” logo etched in metal.

My Thoughts:

I love this case! I needed a way to organize all my stamping plates and this leather case is perfect for the job. Prior to the case, I was storing my nail stamping plates in a box. It was an absolute pain in the butt to dig through the box looking for a specific plate. The leather case reminds of of the CD cases I would use to hold CDs. This case holds 2 plates per slot and there are 6 slots per page. The case comes with 14 pages. So after all the math, the case can hold up to 168 nail plates total! That’s a lot of nail plates! Even though it may seem putting 2 nail plates into 1 slot may be a tight squeeze, I didn’t have any trouble sliding any of the plates in and out of the slots.  The case itself is pretty small and won’t take up a lot of room at all. Just imagine 3 plates by 2 plates. It’s very sturdy and can take quite a hit. I’ve dropped and scratched it on accident, and it still looks like new. Even the pages are study too. I don’t think they will be ripping or tearing anytime soon. If you’re looking for a way to organize your nail stamping plates, this case is a good option to consider.

Manicure Monday: Butter London Trustafarian Review, Photos, and Swatch

Share

Butter London Trustafarian ($14) Butter London 3 Free Nail Lacquers are DPB, Toulene and formaldehyde free.

My Thoughts:

Butter London Trustafarian is a holographic nail polish that is a between a yellowish green and a soft greenish, sage shade. I found Trustafarian to be a really sheer nail polish. You will definitely need at least 3 coats. In the photo below, I only used 2 coats. You can see that with 2 coats my nail is still peaking through. Trustafarian is suppose to be a holographic polish, but I didn’t notice that effect. All I noticed was shimmer. When I applied the polish, it went on evenly and dried quickly. It lasted a few days before I noticed any chipping. Overall, even though I think Trustafarian is a really pretty shade, the lack of the holographic effect and the sheerness of the polish made it a disappointment.
