Without further review, here are my nails of April!!

Swatchfest: ELF Baked Eyeshadows

         I picked up 2 of these eyeshadows about 2 months ago, and picked up 3 more today. I thought I'd put them all together in one post for anyone who may be curious about them.

        These are newer products from ELF, and can be found at Target or Kmart. (I'm hearing that ELF is now starting to show up in Walgreens also) As these are part of the Studio Line, these retail for $3. Some preform better than others, but all 5 that I own are very pretty. Being baked products, remember you can use them wet or dry. Each swatch shown is dry on the left, wet on the right.


  Pixie is a rosy pink shade that looks gorgeous in the pan. Unfortunately it does not swatch fantastically, and I fear it may not transfer well to the eyelid. 


      Enchanted is a rose gold shade that is again, gorgeous in the pan. This was one of the first 2 shades that I purchased. I have worn this one a few times now, but like Pixie, it doesn't transfer very well. YOu really need to work with it to build it up. 

Burnt Plum

Burnt Plum is, obviously, a darkened red purple. It's absolutely beautiful, and I think will look great on the eyelid. I think this one will look so so pretty on blue eyed girls. 


      Toasted is somewhat similar to Enchanted, but a bit darker and more pigmented. It's a golden bronze shade. I have also worn this one a few times, and it looks gorgeous paired with another deeper gold shade.


      Bark definitely has the best pigmentation of all the shades I own. It is a deep bronze brown. You know I love my browns! This one looks awesome, and I can't wait to wear it!

More New Shades from Wet n WIld MegaLast Collection

     Yes, I am a hoarder. I also broke my own rule of only buying 7 nail polishes for the entire year. I can't help it!! Wet n Wild MegaLast line is my favorite brand OF LIFE, and when they launched 40 new shades, I almost peed my pants. 

    Here is a quick bottle shot of 4 more shades I recently acquired. (I have a couple more also that I forgot to snap of picture of). I just recorded a video about these new polishes, so look forward to the accompanying swatch post in the very near future!

L-R: Sunspot, Sweet Tooth, Telescope Vision & Dark Side of the Blues

New Wet n Wild MegaLast Nail Polishes!

     These are just a couple pictures of what I picked up. Look for swatches on here and on my YouTube channel towards the end of the month :)

     If you didn't already hear, Wet n Wild completely expanded their MegaLast line. WAHOO!!! You guys know that is my favorite nail polish line of life! Unfortunately within these 40 or so new shades are some from the Spoiled line that can be found at CVS. If you don't have a CVS near you, that may be good news. I find it a little poopy though, I wish they were all just brand new shades. Beggars can't be choosers I suppose. 

     At this moment in time, the only place that has these polishes available is the Dollar General, but they are not exclusive to that store. They will eventually be sold where ever you can find the line. I picked up 4 shades for now, but they are more that I'd like to get. At $2 a pop, I'm surprised I contained myself to only 4 LOL.

Black Light Party, Tulip Season, Young 'n' Cheeky & Sea Change
