Sunkissed VoxBox Review: Sinful Colors SinfulShine with Gel Tech Nail Colour

Hey loves!

So some quick product reviews of the goods I received in my Influenster Sunkissed VoxBox. One of those being the Sinful Colors SinfulShine with Gel Tech Nail Colour in “Set the Mood.”

ArtsyArchitette Influenster Sunkissed VoxBox Products 2013 Review Sinful Colors Sinful Shine Set the Mood

My nails are in a horrid state… so lets overlook that. The SinfulColors SinfulShine Collection is supposed to have “oppulant rich color and superb shine” in fact 5x the shine of their regular polish and its totally does! I took the photo above BEFORE applying my topcoat.

So to say that it leaves a shiny finish is practically an understatement. It also leaves a nearly opaque finish after one coat, so two coats is perfect. It’s definitely nice not having to apply multiple coats just to get the color you bought.

The SinfulShine range goes for $2.99 a bottle, a bargain in comparison to most brands.

I received the shade “Set the Mood” that comes across as a deep teal in the bottle, but sets a tad closer to navy on your nails.

If you’re a nail junkie or need a new shiny shade for a new season, I’d definitely give the SinfulShine range a try. You can pick them up at most Walgreens or online.

Influenster Sunkissed VoxBox Summer 2013

Happy Thursday Loves!

The weekend is almost here and I’m super excited… for no real reason other than I have 3 days off from work – and hey, that’s reason enough right?!

Well, early last month (July) I received a box of complimentary goodies to test and review from one of my absolute favorite communities/ programs > Influenster!

I’ve held off on reviewing them for you since one of the products was a BB cream, see below, and I didn’t have the time to properly test it out when I first received it.

So check out the Sunkissed VoxBox freebies I got…

Splash of color: Minty Greens, Ocean Blues, Sea Greens and Teal

So a few days ago I posted about my love for all things coral in color, since then I realized my other favorite Spring and Summer color range:  Minty greens, ocean blues, sea greens, teal and all colors in between!

So I grabbed quite a few things in these colors along the lines of clothing, accesories, nail polish and of course make-up!

Also, perfect timing – my MyGlam bag also arrived today, including one product in this color range, so I included that too, look for my April What’s in my MyGlam bag post tomorrow 😀
