Since it’s getting closer to Christmas I wanted to wear red nail polish. I only really have 2 red polishes something that I need to rectify and soon. I picked the Aurora Gel Effect in Flaming Red because I want to see if it was really close to Gel. It’s an orangey red that stands out. It doesn’t require a UV light which is great. The polish is thinner than I thought it would be. I was hoping that the polish would only require one coat, but you need at least 2 to thoroughly coat your nails. It was a bit streaky, probably because of the thinness of it. It did, however, last a long time and didn’t start to chip until the 5th day of wear. While it isn’t as good as having gel done in the salon, it is a close second. I’ll definitely check out the different colors, but Vampire Red has really caught my eye. Plus at $7 it’s not a break the bank situation.
So New Year, why not start it off right with a little something for myself? They had so many discounts at my CVS that I couldn’t help but buy up!
I definitely had to get some of the star wars collection from Covergirl since I am such a fan, and yes I know I technically purchased two of the same mascara (one is waterproof!!!!) but I really don’t care.
I also want to start doing my nails more so I bought some much needed products from ORLY.
Also this is the only drugstore in my area that carries MUA cosmetics. I can’t usually find MUA anywhere so when I saw that set on sale I snatched it up!
