17 Challenge: Pastel

Hello Again,

Yet another installment in the 17 Challenge Nail Design series!  Today I present to you, pastel nails.

I originally did a plain mani with my pastel peach color.   A day later, I decided to add some flower detail on my accent finger for a little more summery and floral look.

Overall, a pretty easy and simple 17 Challenge.


Colors Used:

Peach Parfait by Ulta
Luxe by Orly (gold dots)
White Out by Orly

And because the perfection and easiness of the nail polish made for pretty photos, I present you with more pictures below.

Sun (sorry for that glare)


I will be posting a tutorial on how to do the flowers on my ring finger, so look forward to that.

Until next time <3

Influenster: Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen Review

Hello everyone,

Influenster Summer Beauty VoxBox

This is the first post of several Influenster posts.  If you do not know what Influenster is, it is a free testing service where you get a package (called a VoxBox) filled with new products that you must test.  Here is a link to the website: www.influenster.com, I highly encourage you to sign up!

This picture to the right is just a collective photo of all the products I received FREE from Influenster.

So in this post I will be reviewing Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sunscreen Lotion if SPF 30.  It also comes in SPF 12 and 50.  A 6 oz bottle is priced at $8.99.

This was one of the products that I saw and wasn't really that excited about it, until I realized that I was...if that makes since.  Basically I haven't been one to use sunscreen (bad, I know) but when I got this it just made sunscreen more appealing.

First of all, it is a sunscreen lotion.  This is very evident in the way that it applies.  It doesn't just sit on your skin like most sunscreens I have tried in the past, but it actually hydrates your skin and supplies it with moisture and protection.

As far as the scent goes, it does smell a little bit like a sunscreen; but, it also has a nice relaxing sweet and summery smell that is subtle but still detectable.

I am really pleased with this product.  The bottle I got is 2 fl oz and is just the right size for my purse or backpack and makes applying on the go very easy and convenient.

DISCLAIMER:   I received this product complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.
