Products I used:
Revlon Colorstay Base coat
China Glaze Re-fresh Mint and Atlantis
Jordana Quick Shine Top Coat

I wanted to wear Atlantis since it's a teal green jelly holographic nail polish so I used a base color which was Re-fresh mint. I'm not a fan of most jellies but I really love Atlantis and it looks really nice over Re-Fresh mint. I love the teal green jelly with the holographic glitters. If you like holographic jellies you should try this one. I don't have much to say because its so pretty and it has a great formula. 

I hope you enjoyed this weeks mani for Manicure Monday's.

Disney Movie Rewards Haul/ Unboxing

Hello my MJF stars,
I have another Disney Movie Rewards Redeeming haul. I again found two things that I could not pass up to use my points. So lets see what I got this time.



The first thing I got was Disney Tarzan blu-ray + DVD + digital hd copie for 900 points which I don't own and I thought it was worth the 900 points which most of the blurays are 1,000 points. I'm so happy to add it to my Disney movie collection.


The other thing I got was the new Funko Pop The Pirates of the Caribbean dead men tell no tale of Jack Sparrow for 750 points. I was so happy to find it on the Disney Movie Rewards because I was trying to buy it at Hot topic but they sold out and I was really bummed that I could not get it. So I'm so happy to get it for free by using my points even thought it got a little banged up in the mail. I wish had points to get the other pops in the pirates collection they had but I used most of them up because they been getting really good rewards lately. Anyways, I really happy own my only Jack Sparrow pop and to add it to my growing collection.

If you not already you should check out my other Disney Movies Rewards and you should sign up to get free Disney movies and more.

Summer Peach and Pinksicle Mani

Hello my MJF stars,
I'm back with another mani for Manicure Mondays. This time I want to wear a neon summery nail polish color so lets see what I put on my nail this time.

Products I used:
Orly Top2 Bottom Basecoat and top coat 
Sinful Colors Summer Peach
Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson Pinksicle 
Jordana Quick Shine Topcoat

As I said above that wanted to wear a neon bright summery color so I pulled out one of my favorite neon orange nail polish I own which is Sinful Colors Summer Peach which is a nice bright neon orange. It's a matte formula which is not my favorites but since its opaque in three coats it worth it. I don't know if they still make this polish but if you can find it and you like neon oranges its a must have. I then put Pinksicle on top which made it looks like candy on my nails. I really love this combo and if you can still find Pinksicle you should pick it up it looks so pretty over anything and everything.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this weeks mani for Manicure Mondays.

Review: Buxom Lip Polish in Dolly

Hello my MJF stars,
A while ago I was sent this Buxom Lip Polish in Dolly to test out. So I though I would give you my thoughts about this Lip Polish.

Buxom Dolly in box

Boxom Dolly out of box

Buxom Dolly 
I really like the box it really cute with the girl on it. I also really like the lip polish tube is really nice and sturdy which has a little wight to it. It has a doe foot applicator like most liquid lip products. I love the sliver on the top and the sliver writing. There is 0.15 oz in the tube which is a lot a product in the tube. Buxom Lip products are sold at Ulta and the lip polishes are $20.00 each.

Dolly on bare lips

Buxom claims:
Buxom Full-On Lip Polish is the best-selling gloss from the lip plumping authority in a tingly shimmer-sheer finish. Lips reach their full potential with this ultimate lip plumper. A high-shine plumping gloss tingles to coax a gorgeous pout while pampering and moisturizing lips with Vitamins A and E. Lips stay lusciously soft, plumped, and seriously sexy. Unique peptide and hyaluronic acid booster helps to stimulate collagen, build volume, and plump to perfection - without irritation.

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly is a cult favorite which is a shimmery mauve. I really love this color its a pretty mauve with gold/ pink shimmer in it. I does not have gritty texture which nice with having a lip gloss with glitter. It would be pretty a topper over lip sticks. At first I was scared of the plumping action because some just burn my lips but this one it not like that at all. It have slight tingly on my lips with some mint scent. I really like it because I like mint lip products. I don't know if it plumped my lips like it claims. But it does feel like it moisturize my lips which is nice. It also not sticky like most lip glosses which you know I'm not a fan of sticky glosses. All in all I really like this lip polish and do I think its worth $20.00 not really to me because I don't like to spend a lot on my lip products but if they have a sale I would totally pick up more. If you want to splurge you should try this lip polish. 
  
What do you think? Have you tried this lip polish?

4th of July Eye Look 2017

Hello my MJF stars,
Since I did a 4th of July themed eye look this year. I did not have a chance to post it but I still want to show you it. So see what I create this year.


BH Cosmetics Wild & Free Eyeshadow palette

Products I used:
Jordana Eyeshadow Base Eye Primer
BH cosmetics Wild & Free: Stars in picture: crease
Milani shadow eyez 12 hr wear eyeshadow winter white: eyelid
Nyx roll on shimmer Platinum:  eyelid and bottom lash
Princessa Liquid Velvet 24hr smooth matte lipstick Angel Red as eyeliner
Covergirl Lashblash Volume Mascara Very Black

I pulled out my BH Cosmetics Wild & Free Eyeshadow palette to use the navy blue color for my crease. I then put Milani pencil in winter white on my eyelid for a base for NYX roll on shimmer in Platinum to stick to so you can see all of the shimmer in it. I saw people use liquid lip sticks as liners so I thought I use Princessa Angel Red because I did not like it on my lips. I really like how it looks as liner and it not bother my eyes. I will be using it again as liner. I really love how this eye look came out and I forgot how pretty this BH cosmetics palette is.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my 4th of July eye look.

Barnes and Noble Haul

Hello MJF stars,
I have a Barnes and Noble haul from a while ago that I want to share with you. So lets get into what I got.

(update I had to re-upload the Youtube video because I spelled Barnes wrong and it was bugging me)





The reason I went to Barnes and Noble is that I wanted to get a copy of Fantastic beasts because walmart did not have any copies on there store. Of course I found a few books that I could not pass up. So I got Fantastic Beast and where to find by Newt Scamander and J.K. Rowling which was $12.99. I also saw this A graphic novel of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven & other Tales illustrated by Pete Katz and had to get a copy because I'm fan of Poe and it was only $7.98. I also got two of the $10.00 bonded leather books which is Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and through the looking glass by Lewis Carroll and The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. I love Alice in wonderland and the Wizard of oz so I'm happy have these pretty leather books.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Barnes and Noble haul.
