Senegence Shampoo and Conditioner Review

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve posted, but I wanted to share my thoughts on the Senegence Shampoo and Conditioner. I’m suuuuper careful about what I put on my hair. I spend a crapload of money to make my hair crazy colors and there are a lot of things that cause faster fading. I’m always careful to avoid any sulfates or coconut oil as ingredients in my hair care. Those are the two worst causes of quick fading for vivid hair colors.

I ran out of my Kerastase shampoo and conditioner and was about to buy more when I realized I’d never even tried the Senegence Shampoo and Conditioner!!! I sell Senegence for heaven’s sake – why hadn’t I tried the product?!

I made sure there were no ingredients that would harm my hair color…and luckily, there weren’t! I put in an order.

Guys. I am LOVING this. It made my hair so much less frizzy and so much more moisturized. With the amount of color I put on my hair, dryness is a huge problem for me. I have to inject a lot of moisture into my hair to keep it healthy, but the right kind or else it will ruin everything! It’s a very careful system.

After blow-drying, my hair felt much softer, less frizzy, and way healthier than what I was previously using. I can’t wait to go back to my hairdresser to show her what a difference it made!

Zoya Holiday Gift Sets

{Press Sample}

Zoya was kind enough to send me a bunch of their holiday gift sets to show you. These are perfect for any makeup and nail polish lover – especially from this highly wonderful brand!

First, I need to tell you that Zoya is releasing a wider brush. They sent me a whole box full to replace some of the other, thinner brushes if I chose. This is awesome because I prefer a wider brush. I find it gives me a better look line at the cuticle part of my nail.


One of this year’s gift sets is the naked manicure set. These are mini bottles and would be a great set for someone looking to try this line.zoya-naked-manicure

The “All Snuggled Up” set comes with (from L to R) is Shimmer, Mia, Madeline, and Joni.zoya-all-snuggled-up-gift-set

These are all polishes from previous Zoya collections. Here is an old swatch of Joni that I did.


Here is the “All Wrapped Up” collection with the following polishes:

Red Aspen False Eyelash Review

{Press Sample}

Chaotic Beauty sent me two Red Aspen False Eyelashes to review for you! I used to wear falsies everyday but have since stopped putting in the extra effort. LOL. Red Aspen has two main lines of lashes – one for glasses wearers and one for non-glasses wearers. The glasses line is shorter so that they don’t brush up against your lenses. I also think they are the more natural looking and everyday wearable line.

For reference, here are a couple pictures of my lashes before I applied the falsies. I have on eyeliner and mascara, obviously. Normally, this is where I would end my makeup routine for my eyes, but this time I’m putting on some falsies!

Here is what Priya looks like on me. It’s quite bold and definitely a glam look. They were as easy/hard to apply as any of the full strip false eyelashes I’ve used in the past. It does take a bit of practice, but does become easier over time.

I wouldn’t wear Priya as an everyday look. To me, they are just too obvious that you’re wearing falsies. However, the quality is good and they are not heavy on the lids.

Bella is a much more natural look, but you still get the falsie look with them. Once again, the quality is great and these are even lighter than Priya.

The Red Aspen glue was fine for my very sensitive skin and eyes. It comes out white but dries clear – which is perfect for precise application.

To remove the lashes, I gently pull them off my lids. Then, you can use eyemakeup remover to get the extra glue off the lash strip. They can be used multiple times. I think Red Aspen says 7-10 uses which is about right for the other brands I’ve tried as well.

Thanks again to Araceli for sending these my way! To see these lashes and all Red Aspen products, make sure to head over to Red Aspen

Jodie Whittaker as Doctor Who – A Lazy Betty Review

I’m going off my beaten path a bit for this post. No nails. No makeup. Just my thoughts. I watched Episode 1 of Season 11 of the new Doctor Who last night. When Jodie Whittaker was first announced as the 13th Doctor, many people asked me what I thought about it. I refrained from commenting until I could see her in action. No sense judging someone before they even tried!

We started the episode and I was extremely nervous. This is a big moment for the show and for females in general. Jodie had to perfectly nail the role in order to be accepted. The controversy surrounding a female Doctor was huge and many people predicted it would ruin the show.

I’m going to stop beating around the bush and cut to the chase. I. Loved. It. Jodie Whittaker did a superb job. Her initial take on the Doctor has many throw-back personality traits to David Tennent’s Doctor, which I absolutely love. She was clever, she was snippy, she was scatter brained. It was exactly what the Doctor should be.

Now, about the rest of the show. I just want BBC to know that I see what you did. It appears that they’ve taken the most popular characters over the last 10 seasons and reinvented them to inject a little energy and fan support into the show. Graham is a lot like Donna’s grandfather – who was/is a beloved character on the show. What’s-his-face and what’s-her-face remind me of a bit of the Rory and Amy dynamic. I appreciated the Rory/Amy storylines because there was a bit of romance on the show, but without bastardizing the Doctor’s character. (Don’t get me wrong. I love the Doctor and Rose together. But, that’s not supposed to be the point of the show.) Lastly, Jodie’s Doctor is very reminiscent of the 10th Doctor, which is commonly accepted as the best Doctor ever and if you disagree with me, you’re obviously wrong. J/K! (But David really was the best Doctor.)

I have high hopes for this season if they can keep the character development on track. The storyline of this premier episode was ok. At first, I thought the Warrior was going to be the newest iteration of Cyberman. That would have been kinda cool. Instead, we got creepy tooth-face-man. An interesting foe, but unlikely to become a reoccurring monster on the show.

Near the end of the episode, in the final showdown between the Doctor and tooth-face, she gives a little monologue that was clearly directed at opponents of a female Doctor. To paraphrase, she basically said that you can change your future while still staying true to who you were in the past. It was a bit obvious, but it probably needed to be said. I like that they did it at the end of the episode because they let us get to know Jodie’s Doctor before getting up on their soapbox. Luckily, that soapbox monologue was only about 10 seconds long and we got to get back to the action.

Three cheers for Jodie. You had a lot of pressure for launching this new role and you did it brilliantly.

Color Street Freedom Calling

Color Street Freedom Calling is from the Fourth of July collection, but is still available (at least as I’m typing this!) here.

This is a beautiful cobalt blue polish with red and white glitters. Even though the 4th has passed, this would be a perfect nail to wear for Labor day next month! We just revamped our Color Street website also so the shopping experience should be better than ever!

Color Street Atlantis

Color Street Atlantis sold out almost immediately the first day it was released! Luckily, corporate has restocked it a few times so I could get my hands on a set (plus a backup set!!)
This design is reminiscent of mermaid nail art and it’s even more gorgeous in person. There is a lot of purple shift when you’re rolling your fingers around in the sun.


I would highly recommend picking up this design. I believe it’s limited edition and it may be the most gorgeous Color Street design yet.color-street-atlantis-nail-art

Color Street Fairytale Forest

Good morning! Today, I am wearing Color Street Fairytale Forest! This is a beautiful, feminine look that kind of looks like a watermarble, but WAY less messy!

color-street-fairytale-forest color-street-fairytale-forest-nail-art

Color Street nail wraps are made of 100% real polish. This makes them super easy to remove – without damaging your nails! Simply remove these with nail polish remover – the same way you’d remove any polish! Hooray!

Color Street At the Plaza

I had been putting off trying Color Street At the Plaza because sometimes the solid prints don’t work well with my super curved nails. But, I thought that I owed it to you to try it and besides, I freaking love rose gold in general.

Well, boy was I surprised at how great these looked! OMG! I wore these for much longer than I normally can stand wearing the same nail polish. This rose gold color is simply stunning in person. Additionally, it has a metallic finish and with traditional polish, all you get to see are nail ridges and brush strokes. Welp, not with a wrap! No ridges. No brush strokes. Just freaking gorgeous metallic rose gold.

I’ve actually bought another set of these already because I know I’m going to need to wear this again. I may just put one in every order going forward! LOL.

On another note…did you know I’m a professional dog trainer? I’m trying to get my YouTube channel off the ground. If you’re a dog lover, owner, or aspiring dog trainer, come check it out HERE! I’m not even asking you to subscribe or anything. :) (Although, you can if you want!) I’m just hoping you’ll pop over and see if it’s something you’d be interested in. Thanks in advance! :)

Color Street El Dorado

Color Street El Dorado is a yellow gold glitter polish. It has holographic elements to it in the sun as well! This one is very thin….which is a really good thing! The thinner the wrap, the easier it is to apply on very curved nails like mine. :)

Zoya Elements Collection

{Press Sample}

Zoya sent me their new Elements Collection to swatch for you! This would more accurately be called the purple collection because every single color is purple. :P

I have many mixed feelings about this collection. I like the darker, vampy purples and the shimmer/glitter ones. However, most of them lean mauve and just simply look like old lady colors. There’s nothing wrong with old lady colors,  but they aren’t on trend or flattering to the eye.

I also had a lot of chipping issues with this collection. I tried four different basecoats as I was wearing these in real life. Regardless of basecoat, these polishes were chipping within 12 hours. I usually get 24-72 hours out of a manicure before my dogs and lifestyle cause some chips. Therefore, I was pretty disappointed even when using different basecoats – including Zoya’s own!

Let’s take a deeper look….

Zoya Leighton is a deep – almost black- purple. This is one of the more wearable colors for me, although it felt strange wearing such a dark color on a 90 degree day. LOL. I’ll usually reserve these deep colors for fall and winter.

zoya-leighton zoya-leighton-swatch

Zoya Gardner is definitely one of the more interesting colors in the collection and may even qualify as my favorite.

zoya-gardner zoya-gardner-swatch

Zoya Rumor is where we start getting into the overwhelmingly old-lady like colors. And I’m talking old ladies from the 90’s. :P

zoya-rumor zoya-rumor-swatch

Zoya Rachael is another vampy purple, just slightly lighter than the last vampy purple. You probably don’t need to own both.

zoya-rachael-swatch zoya-rachael

Zoya Maryann is a little better and more wearable, but the frosty finish kept nagging me as something an older lady would wear. Or man. I don’t judge.

zoya-maryann zoya-maryann-swatch

Zoya Maeve is about as middle-of-the-road purple you can get. It’s not dark. It’s not light. It’s a plain creme. Nothing to write home about but nothing wrong with it either.

zoya-maeve zoya-maeve-swatch

Zoya Ruthie is another old lady color! WTF! Am I being too harsh? I’d love to know someone else’s thoughts on these colors. Maybe I just have a stick up my butt.Zoya-ruthie zoya-ruthie-swatch

Zoya Donnie is a reasonably modern color but again doesn’t strike much joy or interest for me.

zoya-donnie-swatch zoya-donnie

Zoya Alyssa…yas. Another vampy purple that leans into an oxblood color. Probably one of the more interesting colors in the collection, but as you have probably surmised, that’s not saying much.

zoya-alyssa-swatch zoya-alyssa

Zoya Jenna…a meh bubble gum pink.

zoya-jenna-swatch zoya-jenna

Zoya Kendra…a BRAVE old lady color.

zoya-kendra zoya-kendra-swatch

Zoya Devin…ah! Finally something interesting! This one is a slate-gray-purple with a very interesting glitter/shimmer finish.zoya-devin zoya-devin-swatch

The Zoya Elements collection isn’t BAD. But it also isn’t good. I have seen Zoya put together much more interesting collections. Purple is one of my favorite colors, only second to pink. So I should have been inclined to love this collection. However, I found it repetitive and lacking inspiration. I feel aweful saying these things about Zoya because their collections are usually wonderful!

Color Street Coral Bay

Color Street Coral Bay is a beautiful sand glitter that has a perfect gradient into a coral accent. I think this wrap is just stunning and I loved wearing it.

Morgan Taylor Disco Days

morgan-taylor-disco-days morgan-taylor-disco-days-swatch morgan-taylor-holo-disco-days

These polishes are gorgeous, but did have a distinct smell. Disco Days was probably the least smelly. I’m not sure what was causing the smell but I would guess the pigments used since I don’t remember other Morgan Taylor polishes having a smell. The smell is like nail polish, but much stronger. Although, it’s not nearly as mad as Kleancolor which I can’t even use!
