Gia Dots

Hi Chickies!!!

Today I have a fun manicure using one of my favorite red polishes. Now that the weather has changed I am really starting to feel a lot more fallish LOL I even baked cookies this week! (Now that is saying something because I am the world's worst baker)

This is 2 coats of Zoya's beautiful red in Gia on my thumb, pointer and pinky finger. I just love this polish. It's definitely the exact red I think of when I think of beautiful red manicures. I then put 3 coats of OPI by Sephora's White Hot polish on my middle and ring finger. Even after 3 coats I still felt like it came out streaky, but since I knew I was putting dots on it I figured it was fine.

I used two sized dotting tools to make the dots on my middle and ring finger. lastly since I couldn't live without a little sparkle I used Kleancolor's Red Hot to add some sparkle on my pinky finger.

The sparkle is really hard to see in the pictures for some reason, but it is really pretty in person because it has all different sized glitter flakes in it. (I found a better picture of it from a previous post HERE)  If you don't have it already it is definitely an awesome one to add to your collection...
Lastly just as a PS to myself, I have a couple of pictures of products that I have totally loved using and thought I might share with you all as well in case it was something you were debating upon. (Hope you don't mind that I strayed a bit LOL)
As you can see I have used up just about all of this hand lotion. It retails for about $16 from places like Birchbox or Sephora. Due to the glycerin it does have a bit of a funky smell at first but it quickly dissipates and I loved how it feels on my hands and cuticles.
I used this Smashbox Dark Spot Correcting primer for several months and absolutely loved it! Not only did it feel great on and do a good job as a primer under my make up but it also actually made a noticeable difference on some of the old acne scars I had. Unfortunately, it didn't a thing for all the freckles I was hoping would disappear, but I'm not entirely sure that was a realistic expectation in the first place LOL. I am totally sad to be out of this. It retails for $42 at Ulta and Sephora, so I guess I will just have to cave and get more soon.

I'm going to try this Pores No More next by Benefit and see if it really does all it promises...

And since I seem to have posted pictures of everything else today, here is a picture of the cookies I was so excited actually came out. They were Raspberry Thumbprints. (Someone obviously ate some of these before I could even take a picture LOL) That's it for now! Enjoy your week and thanks for reading! It totally makes my day XOXO
