Neeyuh's Tips: Nail polish removal

Hey everyone!!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Since I got really into painting my nails on the regular last year I'm always on the lookout for new or easier ways to do things that make the process smoother for me. One of my biggest issues is removing dark polish or glitter, it would get everywhere and make a huge mess. So, one day I was on youtube and came across this video from Glintzy, Click HERE to watch. In the video she mentions that felt makes it much easier to remove all kinds of polish. You can find it at craft stores and even walmart for about $.30-$.40 a sheet, you then cut them into squares or rectangles in whatever size you prefer. This is how I cut mine ( I got about 30 squares per sheet):

I can usually use one for all 10 nails but one thing I will warn you about is that it does make a little bit of a mess because it's removing so quickly so you'll most likely have to use one more to clean up the excess.

Another thing that helps out is the type of polish remover you use, this is what I use:

I know that acetone isn't the best for your nails but I've been using it forever and haven't had any problems. It's the best remover in my opinion and I won't ever use anything else!

Do you do something similar to this for removing your nail polish?

NOTW: French Kiss


I just wanted to share my nails for this week, I'm absolutely in love with the color! It comes off much lighter in pictures than it is in person.

Polishes used:

Sinful Colors base coat, Pure ice in French Kiss and Out the Door topcoat.

I love the formula of the Pure ice polish, it's so smooth and makes it easy to get an even coat. Also for being a color I'm not used to wearing I'm addicted, I want to wear it for weeks and weeks!

I'm Back!!

Hey everyone!!

I know I abandoned this blog again and I really wish I hadn't. My life has been crazy these last few months but no matter what was going on I always missed beauty blogging. Now that things have settled down for me I'm going to try my hardest to get back into things. I hope everyone hasn't forgotten about me! lol.

So, the biggest thing I focused on while I was away was finishing products that have been sitting around for way too long or just getting through products in general. I made sure to take pictures after each month or so and I'm actually really proud of myself! I stuck to these products and have only really bought things when it was an absolute need. But yeah on to the products...

L to R: Victoria's Secret Garden refreshing body mist in Enchanted Apple, Bath and Body works body lotion in White Tea and Ginger, Soap&Glory Heel Genius foot mask, Clean and Clear finishes pore perfecting moisturizer, Kiwi Strawberry Lipsmackers, Up&Up Daily facial cleanser and Victoria's Secret Garden hand and body moisturizer in Pure Seduction.

L to R: Kirkland daily facial cleansing towelettes, Queen Helene mint julep natural facial scrub, Hollister body lotion in Hermosa Beach, Mark for goodness face moisturizer, Strawberry Vanilla Lipsmackers and Garnier Fructis Leave-in conditioning cream.

GVP Tea tree oil treatment and Pantene Fine hair solutions anti-breakage detangler.

That's everything! You'll probably be seeing reviews on some of these products coming up in the next few weeks but if you would like anything in particular reviewed please let me know!

I'm so glad to be back, I missed you all!!
