Apothica Haul!

So awhile back I won a great giveaway from VEROblog and the prize was a $20 Apothica gift card. I knew immediately that I would be purchasing another Deborah Lippmann polish to add to my collection. Last time I bought a Lippmann it was a toss up between Lady Sings the Blues and Across the Universe. Lady Sings the Blues eventually won out but I knew I had to get my hands on Across the Universe. So obviously that is what I picked up with my gift card. To my surprise thought I had a little left on another gift card so I decided to try out some Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream that so many rave about.

Across the Universe is so beautiful in real life. My camera just could not capture all the beautiful green and blue glitter suspended in a navy blue jelly polish. I am so happy to have this polish in my collection now. 
I have to say I also love the Burt's Bees LBCC. It does not stink like some other Burt's Bees products I have tried in the past so that made me happy! I want to thank Veronica again from VEROblog, I appreciate you hosting the giveaway.

Everbella X&D Shatter Review

Hi Guys! I got the Photoshop itch a couple days back and I have totally overhauled the blog. I hope you guys like it because I DO! Today I have a review for a polish I received from Everbella. This is X&D Red Shatter. This shatter has a very matte finish so for the photo below I am wearing top coat. I actually attempted to do a reverse shatter like I have in the past. The colors were not as close as I thought so it turned out a little different than I had imagined. 
For the reverse shatter I alternated Zoya Sooki and OPI Glitzerland. I then reversed X&D Red Shatter and Color Club Gold Shatter. I love the look of reversed shatters. I plan on trying this with a different combo next time. Maybe black and red perhaps?.....

X&D Red Shatter retails for $4.99 and can be purchased on Don't forget to use my exclusive coupon code for %10 off!
