My First Cult Nails - Captivated

 I finally got my hands on my very first Cult Nails! I have wanted this one for ages now! Can you believe I didn't know she was an Indie company until less than a year ago?

I couldn't wait to see this on my toes!

It's an awesome pinky red jelly with iridescent glitter in different sizes - medium and small hex.

 I love the unique pinky red jelly base and the glitter combo!

The glitter makes me think of China Glaze Snowglobe and it shines so many different colors!

And a bottle shot. I really love her bottle shape and size!

Yay for my first Cult Nails!!

Rainbow Cheetah!

My friend on Facebook did a cheetah mani that was white with shades of pink, and I just loved it! I had to do one! I have never done a cheetah print mani, but it was fun!
Rainbow Cheetah!!!

 I used a base color of Zoya Carey and just a random cheap black and a tiny paint brush for the cheetah spots. The colors are Zoya Breezi (blue), China Glaze Sunshine Pop (yellow), China Glaze Gaga for Green (green), Zoya Kieko (purple), and China Glaze Make Some Noise (pink).

Here is Zoya Carey by itself with two coats, just a nice grey creme.

You like the fun rainbow cheetah? I love it!

Lush Haul and Oatifix Mask Review

Lush haul!!! I'm so amazingly glad we have a Lush store now. You have no idea.
Godiva shampoo bar, Jumping Juniper shampoo bar, Oatifix fresh face mask, and Fair Trade Honey shampoo sample

It's made with banana, almonds, oatmeal, vanilla, and more. They are $6.95 and the lady told me they last for 3 weeks in the fridge and you get about 3 face masks from them. I only needed a little for this mask (above pic), and I got about 5 masks from it. It lasted longer than 3 weeks for sure. Maybe the potency of the ingredients fades or something?

Bare it all lol!! The mask felt nice and cool going on, soothing. I left it on for about 13 minutes (recommended 10). It tingled maybe like 10% and still does a good hour later. I have really sensitive skin and it definitely isn't painful or irritating. I have combination skin (dry and oily in different places) and am acne prone, but I also wanted one with a little exfoliation, so they recommended this one. I think the exfoliation comes from the ground almond and oatmeal and it's very light and gentle.
Here is a close up so you can see the texture of the mask. I really wasn't sure how much to put on so I just went with it. I definitely felt the creaminess all over my face even though it doesn't look like it's all over. And it smells just like banana nut bread mmmm!!!

I really like this mask! My skin felt perfectly balanced and moisturized and my skin looked a little brighter and more evenly toned. No more flaky dry patches either! I didn't even need to moisturize, I just toned after. Lets see how long this lasts and if it helps my break outs!

What are your favorite products from Lush, and how did you like any face masks you tried?
