Nail of the Day: Sinful Colors in Thimbleberry

hey guys! so I've been obsessed with Essie's new color Come Here! however I've been less than impressed with its formulation, its very tacky and thick and just very hard to work with. So I went on a mission to find a dupe to say the least. This is what I found! Sinful Colors Thimbleberry!

Thimbleberry is a watermelon/poppy red creme. Very similar to Come Here by Essie. Thimbleberry is ever so slightly more pinkish but its hardly noticeable. This formula was very easy to work with, the first coat was a little bit streaky but it reached full opacity by 2 coats. In the past I haven't been super excited about Sinful Colors formulas but this one may just change my mind.

So what do you guys think? I've never been a fan of reds for summer but I really like this. Do you guys have any favorite summer colors?

How To: Make Your Nails Whiter

Hey guys! So this is a little tip I picked up from a magazine and I honestly cannot remember which one it is but anyway I gave it a go and it works!

I know the lighting is a little brighter in the after picture but I promise it works, if you look you can see the blue tinge around my cuticles is gone

E.L.F. Cream Eyeliner in Black, Teal Tease and Punk Purple

Recently there was a sale on E.L.F. products and I figured it would just be crazy to not take full advantage of that. I have been hearing tons of good things about these cream eyeliners so I decided to try em out. I bought black, teal tease and punk purple.

I apologize for the fact that I've already ruined their brand new never been used look but I had to try them 
The cream eyeliners come in cute little plastic square containers, they feel very high end. I don't really like the covers just because they are very hard for me to screw on straight, who knows maybe I'm just defective. Anyway for $3.00 you get .17 oz of product which may not sound like much but this stuff lasts and its great so for that price I definitely recommend checking these out.
