Today’s mani starts with two coats of Dermelect Fant-a-Sea which was originally sent to me as a press sample. I used a design from the Red Cici&Sisi collection and Mundo de Unas Tutti to create this design.
I’ve beein pining for the OPI iZen Proshaker for a loooooong time. I finally splurged and purchased it from Amazon.
I feel like it was a big purchase so I’ve made sure to use it every day for a few weeks before writing this review. I’d never want to recommend something that I haven’t tested well!!
Long story short, I freaking love it and I’m SO happy I purchased it!
Long story long, I had a little trouble getting this guy into my hot little hands. I was going to go postal on the Post Office. Luckily, iZen’s customer service went above and beyond to help me. They even personally called me to discuss the USPS problem. That was a lovely touch and gave me real trust that if something goes wrong, you’ll be able to talk to a human being. Once I finally received it, I ripped it out of its box eagerly! It’s nice and sturdy. I tried quite a few different bottle shapes and sizes. It fit my MDU and OPI mini bottles no problem. It will not fit your super strange shaped bottles – such as Julep or those ones shaped like a rear end. But the vast majority of bottles will work; no problem.
My husband thought it was a little silly for me to purchase something that just shakes polish for me. However, when it’s a daily occurrence and you have carpel tunnel in both wrists, this thing is a godsend. On top of that, I’ve never been able to get my Mundo de Unas polishes shaken very well once they start separating. (Well…until now!) The ProShaker handles those super-thick polishes like a champ.
If you’re getting sick and tired of trying to get polishes in proper shape for use, then the OPI iZen Proshaker is for you. Even if you don’t paint your nails every day like I do, it would still be a good purchase if you’re tired of rolling and shaking and shaking and rolling!
Jessica Robertson sent me their six new lipglosses to show you! I have swatched some polishes and their tanning lotions for you in earlier posts. You can find these lipglosses and more at DrSunRX.com. All of the glosses have a distinct smell that I can’t quite put my finger on. Possibly vanilla or watermelon? The colors are quite pretty and have a good color payout. I can see myself wearing all six of these colors for various occasions! I did have to put the brush (it’s a doe-foot style brush) into the bottle a few times to get enough product to apply. They’re not quite as moisturizing as other lipglosses I’ve used, but if you layer them over chapstick, it’s not a problem.
Cotton Candy is a very light pink that is on the sheer side.
Nude is exactly how it is name. A very natural looking color.
Iced Mocha is a frosty brown. I had the most trouble with the application on this one, but I’ll be darned if I don’t like the color! :)
Berry was probably the smoothest application of them all.
Peach Mango is the one that I see myself wearing the most often. It’s got the perfect amount of peachy color for daily use.
Cherry is a really fun orange-red.
Thanks again to Dr Sun RX for sending Jessica Robertson Lip Gloss collection my way!
The Born Pretty Store sent me some more stamping plates to show you! Today I have a design from Plate BP-L016 to share with you! Here is a picture with the entire plate:
I think most of them look almost Victorian, which I love! To feature a design from this plate, I started with two coats of GlitterDaze Loose Lips Sink Ships and I used Mundo de Unas Mint to stamp.
As usual, the stamping plate was easy to use and worked well for me!
Thanks again to BPS for sending me these to review! You can find these supplies and more in the nail art section of the Born Pretty Store. Use code FYL91 to receive 10% off all your supplies at BornPrettyStore.com
Today’s mani starts with two coats of Jessica Robertson Rustic Red (originally sent to me as a press sample). Then, I used Mundo de Unas Blue Navy and a design from the Cici&Sisi Red plate to create this design.
You have to look pretty hard to see the stamping design in real life. The colors are both so dark that it was hard to see. But that goes to show how well MDU stamps over dark colors! :)
