Monday greetings to you all! Hope y’all had an pleasurable weekend and received much relaxation. We all need that in our lives. Haha.
After yesterday’s Honey-Almond Moisturizing Mask, my skin felt completely rejuvenated! Love that mask so much! If you haven’t already checked out my DIY Sunday Mask recipe from yesterday, please do go check it out. Just a few simple, natural ingredients, takes up no more than 10 minutes to prepare but it will live your skin so lively it’s not even funny.
Last week, I had on a plain gray nail color so it is to no surprise I was craving for something shimmery this week. I went through the bunch of nail colors I recently ordered off of Hautelook and this gorgeous green caught my eyes! I looked at the name and it gave me a chuckle, “Leaf Him At The Altar”, they do come up with the darnest names. Haha.
After applying the green, I wasn’t completely satisfied… like something is missing. And I was right! Not enough sparkle, sparkle!! I went through my glitter polishes and Golden Goddess was the answer. What a relief that the two complement each other well or I would have to redo the manicure. LOL.

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Diamond Shine Base & Top Coat
I absolutely love this particular shade because the formula is just amazing! It glided on like butter evenly without the streaking. The drying time was well under 3 minutes for a even, thin coat. If I had done a better job, I could have left it with one thin coat, but there were certain areas not covered so I went in with another thin coat. The second coat took a tad longer to dry but it was well under 5 minutes still.
After Leaf Him At The Altar was completely dried, I went ahead and applied a coat of Golden Goddess to each and every nail. I kinda had to scrape the speck of glitter from the bottle and strategically place it on the nail. Basically you get what you pay for; for $2, I really cannot complain too much. It is a fine glitter polish that can last for up to a week even without a top coat. The only issues I have with it is that the formula is too thick, thus needing more effort to apply and the drying time takes forever and a day.
And that’s about wraps up this post. Hope y’all enjoyed this week’s manicure. Next week will be a Halloween inspired manicure. :P I gotta get to brainstorming.
Thank you for visiting and thanks for reading. Please do come back soon! :)
