OOTD: Mint Glint! 8/24/12

Today's outfit is all about mint, a color I have been absolutely loving this summer!

Nail of the Day: Urban Outfitters Smush and Dust! 8/24/12

Today's Nail of the Day coincides with my current mint obsession and features two Urban Outfitters nail polishes, which are new to me.
2 Coats
The two Urban Outfitters nail polishes that I used were Smush (mint color) and Dust (shimmery blue with chunky silver glitter.) The formulation of these polishes was smooth and very opaque. The polish wore about one week on my nails before it began to chip, which I consider very good. As a bonus, the polish came off almost effortlessly with nail polish remover; even the glitter wasn't as difficult in removal as some glitters can be. I am loving the blue, glitter polish, Dust. It is a very close dupe to the much more expensive Deborah Lippmann polish in Today was a Fairytale ($16.) These polishes retail for $5 or 2/$8, like I scored.

What's your current favorite nail polish?

For this outfit of the day, I decided to play up the pinks, florals, and creams!

Product Review & Swatch: MAC Girl About Town Lipstick

My newest MAC lipstick is the bright, magenta pink, Girl About Town!

OOTD: High Tide! 8/8/12

For my last day on vacation in San Diego, I spent the day at Coronado Beach with my family. It was such a beautiful beach: white, soft sand and deep blue water! I wore this casual cropped, floral blouse with dusty pink shorts. No shoes today!

OOTD: Navy & Magenta on the Bay 8/6/12

While on vacation in San Diego, I wore this navy floral blouse tucked into a magenta bandage skirt while hanging out at Coronado Island and for dinner later that evening.

OOTD: Orange High-Low Dress! 8/5/12

I bought this orange/coral high-low chiffon dress from Papaya while on vacation in San Diego and wore it out the very next day!

OOTD: Pool Time! 8/4/12

I recently went on vacation in San Diego, California, so I thought I'd do a few "summer vacation" type outfits of the day. This is a neon coral and gray strapless dress that I wore as a swim suit cover-up during my stay.
I love the color-blocking detail on the bust of this dress as well as the sweatheart neckline! Although it's  strapless, it has a pretty conservative length and hits just above my knee (I'm 5'4'' for reference). The fact that it also has pockets is another bonus. I recently picked up this dress at Target, so you most likely will still find it there if you're interested in it. It was also available in a purple/blue color.
As for the straw beach hat, I *ahem* borrowed it from my mother! The T-strap sandals with the turquoise stones are from Charlotte Russe. They are my absolute favorite sandals, and I wore them through two straight summers. Sadly, they finally gave up on me and tore during the trip :(

I'm not wearing makeup today, so excuse my bare face. I have some good ol' SPF 55 sun block from Neutrogena on and a big smile for you instead!

Thanks for stopping by.

Product Review: Sephora + Pantone Universe Strokes of Nature Brush Set

Sephora recently collaborated with Pantone Universe and came out with both an eyeshadow brush set and a colorful eyeshadow palette. This five piece brush set with its blue/green/purple duo-chrome handles and blue-green bristle tips appealed to me the most!
