My Favorite Pedicure Colors

Product Sent for Review Bought it Myself

Favorite Pedicure Colors
Pictured Essie shades, from top left, counterclockwise: Hip-Anema, In the Cabana, First Timer, The Girls are Out, Sunday Funday, Rock the Boat

It's pedicure season again, and while I've had the best of intentions, I fully admit that this weekend I took off my chipping nail polish (it had been on for about 4 weeks) and haven't had a chance to put on more. Today is the day, my friends. So, it was especially appropriate that the nice people over at Martha Stewart sent me pics of June's beauty article, and it was all about pedicures and colors and great pedi tips!

(I'm not sure how they discovered me and started sending me the articles, but I'm always inspired by Martha, so I'm going to keep sharing!)

One product mentioned in the article is Baby Foot's Foot Exfoliate Peel, which kind of looks amazing. Has anyone tried it? I need to order it!

A Month of Red Lippies: Butter London Come to Bed Red Lip Gloss

Butter London Come to Bed Red Lip Gloss swatch
When Butter London released their Lippies, I kind of liked them, though I do think they're a little thicker and some of the colors are a little stickier than others.

Come to Bed Red is very, very pigmented. It applies very easily and quickly, and is a little stickier than a MAC Lipglass, for example, but it really isn't that sticky for such a pigmented gloss. It lasts for a few hours easily despite a drink, talking or eating. Definitely worth checking out!

Makeup Wars: My Favorite Nail Polish Options for Fall

Fall Nail Polish
Fall is by far my favorite season. Changing leaves, crisp cool air, college football (even when your team gets spanked by the reigning national champs in a very embarrassing game).... I love it all. I want to put on some dark lippies, nail polish and wear boots with everything!

This week for Makeup Wars we've decided to share our favorite fall nail polish colors. I had a really hard time deciding, so I've opted to show you my favorite new release color and my all time favorite color as well!

Butter London Gobsmacked
Butter London's new fall collection includes this amazing dark blue-ish grey glitter. I have been wanting a perfect dark grey glitter, and while I have a few options (like OPI's Lucerne-tainly Look Marvelous), somehow the plain dark grey comes across as too dark and just blah on me. This shade is dark grey in about 95% of lights, but there is a little bit of blue in it (as you can see here in the closeup) and somehow that keeps it from looking flat and boring with my pale coloring.

This is 3 coats. The glitter is suspended in an almost completely translucent base, and the first coat I used was very thin, I thought I'd need 20 coats to opaque! Luckily that wasn't the case. Use thin layers, the glitter can get gloppy quickly.

Essie Wicked
Essie Wicked is my old stand-by fall vampy color. This is my 3rd bottle. Yes, I've repurchased it twice! This dark red is very dark, but just not quite so dark that it looks black (it is most definitely a dark red-burgundy in pretty much any lighting). This is 3 coats.

Lippie Love: Butter London Yummy Mummy Lippy

Butter London's Yummy Mummy Lippie. It's a very basic nude that works for me, though I do miss having some shimmer. I've been mixing in a little dot of pink gloss in the center of my lip to add dimension and the result is amazing!

Butter London Yummy Mummy Nail Polish Swatch

Butter London's Yummy Mummy Nail polish is a very pretty nude, though obviously it doesn't work with every skin tone.

I like that it has a very subtle shimmer to add dimension.

Butter London's New Lippies: Lips to Match Your Tips

butter london swatch review nail polish
Butter London is one of those cult brands that is becoming more well known lately. I love their colors and they do wear very well. They've just released a line of glosses to match their best selling polishes, and I think they're a lot of fun! They're perfect for the matchy-matchy look that promises to be popular this spring.

These lippies are well pigmented and feel hydrating with minimal stickiness. They smell (and taste) a bit floral with some melon thrown in to the mix. It's a bit... odd? I don't notice after a few minutes, but the floral in a lippy just wasn't something I was expecting. They lasted a few hours on me without issues before starting to fade, which is pretty good considering how much I'm usually chatting or sipping on a drink.

The lip glosses apply with a sponge applicator (which does have a little angle on it). The gloss is a bit thicker than many other glosses, so the sponge is a much better applicator than a brush would be.

The shades aren't 100% faithfully reproduced, thank goodness! The main difference was the frosty shimmer in Yummy Mummy. That lippy is a creme.

Read on to see how the shades look on me.
