Allure and Butter London Team Up to Make GORGEOUS!!

**Press Samples** 

I am so super excited about this collection from Allure and Butter London. They have joined together to create a FANTASTIC, and I mean fantastic collection. I have gotten so many compliments and "what are you wearing on your nails" from these polishes. These are seriously on the hot list for this season. This is a collection of "vibrant, trendsetting shades that highlight and accessorize your individual style". Yes, indeed they do. 

I'm On The List
So, this is my favorite of the collection. The metallic rose gold is just so regal and classy. Like all Butter London polishes, it applied beautifully. I used two coats just because it's my thing to do but it you could get away with one if you do it carefully.
Like all metallic polishes, you have to be strategic in your brushing. I should say, with all polishes you should be strategic with your brushing but especially with metallics because they tend to show brush marks.

Statement Piece
This is a bright reddish/orange color that is creamy and rich. This applied very nicely and can be a one coater for sure. I love this color and I will be rocking it pretty much as much as possible. I actually have it on my toes right now.
This is perfect to pair with a classic black outfit or perfect to wear to work. Either way, this is just a great color.

Nude Stilettos
This is the sheer nude of the bunch and it leans a little on the pink side. This is such a classy color and is perfect if you are not looking for something too bold or bright.
I often wear these types of polishes when I need a palette cleanser but this season, I will be rocking them under a lot of reddish/orange colors for the modern twang. I used about three thin coats in these pictures.

It's Vintage
Yes!! Another orange themed color. This one has a little brown in it and leans a little rusty. I just love this color. It is so perfect for fall and so perfect for just about any work setting.
I am actually rocking a chevron look with this and Nude Stilettos together and it looks AWE-some! I love all of these colors together so hard! This is a nice heavy creme so you can get away with 1 coat for this baby.

Lust or Must?
This is a super dark brown creme color. This is THE perfect fall color and I just love how it complements the rest of the colors in the collection. I often worry about these really dark colors but this is perfect sweater wearing polish.
This also has a beautiful application and glides on smoothly for 1 nice coat. I actually used two coats for this because it's my thing but you can definitely get away with just one.

Disco Nap
Ok...when I put this one on I actually squeed out loud! This is such an awesome color. This is the glitter out of the bunch and boy does it do that. It is a glitzy dark grey glitter and it is gorgeous.
This is the perfect "going out" polish. Whether you wear it alone or as an accent for Statement Piece, I'm On The List or Nude Stilettos, it's a perfect match for any outfit.

Overall, I am super impressed with this collection. I think it's perfect that these two mega minds came together to create this ultimate force in style. These colors are truly unique and just gorgeous. I love them so hard and really can't get enough. Stay tuned for my pic on Instagram @colormesocrazy and you can check out the #bLxAllure to check our more brilliance.

August Ipsy Bag Reveal: The GREAT and Not So Much

**Affiliate Link**

Just in the nick of time again!! 
This is a felt-tipped pen eyeliner that claims to be so universal that you can wear it all day and all night. I'm not such a huge fan of eyeliners in my Ipsy bags just because we get sooo many. I am also not such a huge fan of liquid liners because I don't like the way they look. I like more of a matte look with my liners. Little tip- if you are like me and like the matte finish, you can add a little powder on top of this to matte it out but it does take a little extra time. You can get 20% by using the code IPSY.

OFRA Cosmetics- Lip Liner
I got this in the color Wine. Ahhh I seriously love this liner. It applies super smoothly and makes any lip look look awesome! You can add it under a nude gloss or you can control a sexy fall wine lipstick. I highly recommended this liner! Ipsy is offering a great discount...40% off by using the code OFRALOVESIPSY

This is a tumeriac radial antioxidant face mask. A must for radiant skin, JUARA’s Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask utilizes the proven power of Indonesian turmeric. This powerful mask detoxifies, brightens and strengthens stressed, tired, dull-looking skin in one single application. Turmeric extract works to brighten and even out skin tone while providing antioxidant protection, kaolin clay purifies skin and refines pores and a touch of candlenut oil is added to soften and nurture skin. This unique mask is a great instant pick me up! This is paraben, Phthalates, Sulfates, Mineral Oil, Gluten, Artificial Colorants and Harsh Chemical free!!! LOVE IT!! You can get 20% off by using IPSY2015.

This is your usual Argan Oil that helps condition, hydrate and smooth. This is mostly for thicker and curlier hair but using on the ends of color treated hair is great, too. I will not be using this as much but I will see if my super curly haired sister will be using it. 

I got this in the shade energy which is a bubble gum pink color. The Skintuitive formula is supposed to smooth the appearnce of fine lines and can I rub it all over my face?? JK There is flower extra for moisture, Jojoba seed for smooth lips and Vitamin E that acts as a natural antioxidant. 

What did you think of this months bag?? If you want in on the Ipsy experience, all you have to do is click on any of the links above. We would love to have you!!

    The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents Inspired by Jewelry

    **May Contain Press Samples**

    So, I made it through 3 posts this month.... that's pretty good. Next month's theme is pets- Let's see what I come up with! I do have a few interesting pets in my household and hopefully I can incorporate them into this theme.
    For this design, I decided to have my jewelry design be THE most decorated item in the world. THE Crown Jewels. Sooo my design isn't exactly like the Crown Jewels but that's the idea. I did little crown designs and then added my own jewels.
    First I used KB Shimmer Sun & Games  to create the crowns and then I decorated them with loose gems. I also used This awesome purple from the new Focus and Flair Collection from Zoya. It is a Royal Purple to go with the theme. I kind of am in love with the color, a lot!
    Colors Used:
    KB Shimmer- Sun & Games
    Zoya- Lidia

    What do you think of this design? What do you think of these colors? I am super excited to show you the rest of this collection next week!! Stay tuned!
