Fresh Paint Olivia

Orlando finally got a Five Below and I'm really excited. Honestly, I thought I'd just love the nail polish there, but I've found so many other great finds. I did come across a Fresh Paint color that caught my eye recently. You know why? Well, it's a neutral. I'm all about the neutrals this winter and this one is a winner.

Olivia is a grey/taupe creme.

Color: I'm having a hard time describing this grey. I don't think it's a straight up pure grey, it does have hint of taupe to it. I love this color! If you asked me this 5  years ago I would of said I hated this color. Taupes were not my thing, but now. I love it! It's a great neutral shade.

Formula: Wow! This formula surprised me. It was PERFECT. I used 2 coats, but I could imagine if you used thick coats you could get away with one. It was smooth, buttery ,and so easy to apply.

Price: I got this at Five Below in a 3 for $5 deal. I believe they're $2 individually.

Overall: I love Olivia. The color is beautiful and formula is great. This fits perfectly in my little neutral winter color obsession I have going on. I approve!

Noodles Nail Polish Winter Daze

The indie market is absolutely overwhelming for me. I feel like it's just nail polish overload on social media with all the indies out there. I cannot keep up especially now with so many small releases, specialty collection, indie boxes. Literally, my brain cannot compute. It's just too much. 

I really try zone in one brands I love and honestly I have to tune the rest out. Every so often, a brand pops on my radar and I have a new much loved brand. That brand for me now is Noodles Nail Polish. I came across their holiday collection and fell in love. I then came across their winter collection and fell harder. This was one of the colors I feel for. 

Winter Daze
Winter Dazes is a deep cornflower blue crelly that's full of gold holo glitters, blue/gold flakies, and aqua micro glitter.

Collection: Noodles Nail Polish Winter 2016

Color: You know me. I love my cool-toned colors paired with warm metals. I love this shade of blue paired this mix of glitters. It's gorgeous and unique. I adore it when indie makers do color combinations like this, they're my absolute favorite. 

Formula: Excellent formula. I used 2 coats above. This applies beautifully, smoothly, and opaquely. 

Price: This is $8.50 on Noodles Nail Polish etsy site. This one is limited edition! There are only 8 bottles left! Get one! 

Overall: This is an all star polish. I love the color combination. The formula is excellent and probably one of the best crelly formulas I've tried. I think this is must have, so for the 8 of you left who get it you're lucky!

Cuccio Olive You

*I received the following product in exchange for my honest review. 

I found out about Cuccio's NUDEtrals back at Cosmoprof in July. I've never really been into neutral or nude polish really. This collection caught my eye back in July, but only a few colors. I can tell you now, I don't know what has changed but I am loving nudes and neutrals this winter. I've been wearing it in clothes, makeup, and nails. I really have stuck to the neutral theme since the beginning of January when I usually change up nail colors. Nope, I'm all about the neutrals!

Here's another great color from the NUDEtrals collection. 

Olive You
Olive You is a grey-toned olive green with a stunning golden and bronze shimmer. 

Collection: Cuccio NUDEtrals Winter 2015-16

Color: I'm not a big green polish fan, much less an olive green one. I have found that the right olive green can look good on me. This is one of them. I adore this color! It's a completely unique color to me, and definitely not a color I would typically reach for. I love it though. I love the muted tone and that gorgeous shimmer.

Formula: The formula on this is sheer and similar to Grey's Anatomy in that sense. I did find this formula to be thinner and much easier to use. I used 3 coats above. 

Price: This can be purchased at HB Beauty Bar online for $8. 

Overall: Gorgeous polish! I highly recommend this one. I love the color and the shimmer. This one is a stunner.

Weekly Wax Wrap Up: 1/24/16-1/31/16

It's been a fairly good week of melting. I only had one I didn't like in the bunch. I am running into a bit of problem! I'm running out of new wax to melt. I've melted through all most all my new wax and only have waxes I've reviewed. I'm hoping my Walmart gets in the new ScentSationals spring line up soon!
DD Beach Getaway
Scent Description: ocean air with a hint of vacation
My Thoughts: I'm not sure what a "hint of vacation" smells like exactly, but I'm on board with this one. This smells similar to me to Yankee Candle's Sun & Sand. It has a strong salty ocean water note blended with that sandy beachy note. I like it. This is definitely one of those scents that I think is universally pleasing. You can't go wrong. It's fresh and beachy. It's not a stunner or a one-of-kind type scent, but definitely good solid scent. This has a good throw and lasted several hours when melted. 
Where To Buy: Hobby Lobby store

Ten Digit Creations Olive Blossom
Scent Description: fresh and clean aroma composed of fresh olive leaves, green ivy, crisp orange, with subtle notes of sandalwood and musk
My Thoughts: If you like rich and complex perfume-like scents, Olive Blossom is for you. I like those types of scents so I love this one. It's so hard to describe because I don't pick up on individual notes in this, it's just an overall elegant and rich floral perfume-like scent. This one is strong and had a great throw. 
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations 

Ten Digit Creations Fifty Shades of Blue
Scent Description: the warmth of the Mediterranean brought to you by notes of bergamot, mandarin, lemon, and orange
My Thoughts: This is supposed to be a dupe to Lush's Olive Branch, which I've never smelled so I can't compare. What I will say is this one gets raved about a lot, but I really hated it. I don't get any bergamot, mandarin, lemon, or orange from this. This to me smells like powdery overly frilly grandma perfume mixed with cotton candy. It's sickly sweet, powdery, and just yuck. It's also strong, which didn't help matters for me. This scent is popular, so maybe it's just my nose?
Where To Buy: Ten Digit Creations

ScentSationals Garden Cantaloupe 
Scent Description: Cantaloupe straight from the garden bursts with the fragrance of sweet, sugary melons freshly cut and ready to eat.
My Thoughts: This is straight up pure cantaloupe. I love melon scents. They're the perfect blend of fresh, sweet, and watery notes. This is perfect. It doesn't smell artificial nor is it overly sweet. It's refreshing and makes me want to eat some cantaloupe! This is a winner! This has a great throw. 
Where To Buy: ScentSationals
