Farewell Miserable January! - January Beauty Favorites 2016

Ugh! It’s January! Well…I’m looking back at my January Favorites. Tell me, does anyone look forward to January? My birthday is during that bitter cold misery stricken month and even I don’t look forward to it! J Dark, dreary, bone-chilling weather aside, it was still a rather odd month for personal reasons, but on the beauty front it wasn’t so bad! J Let’s take a trip down memory lane at the stand-out products in my rotation during January and look forward to Spring…it’s coming relatively soon, right? Please!!! J Right. Back to the topic! January Favorites….

#ManiMonday - Wet n Wild in Air Apparent - ANOTHER 1 Step Wonder Gel!

Happy #ManiMonday and Happy February!!! I don't know about you but I am so glad January is over and I'm hoping for a better Feb. So to help start the month with a breath of fresh air, I went with Wet n Wild's 1 Step Wonder Gel in "Air Apparent." Ok, I actually just really love this color...and obviously the formula...and wanted a nice hint of baby blue on my nails, but that sounded better. :) "Air Apparent" is just a very white-based baby blue, or maybe sky blue. I absolutely love it! And the formula covers perfectly in 2 coats. A rarity with such a light shade! I managed to trap a piece of lint or something on my pointer finger while painting and my nails and cuticles are a mess, so please ignore that. The polish is still gorgeous. "Air Apparent" is definitely one of my current favorite shades!

#ManiMonday - Wet n Wild - Pardon My Peach

It’s an insanely snow-covered #ManiMonday! Not gonna lie. I’m not a fan of the snow, but it is currently pretty to look at. J I have another Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel today because I can’t stop buying and wearing them! I feel like they’re overpriced for Wet n Wild, but I really like them. Anyway, today’s shade is called “Pardon My Peach.” I was looking for a nice soft peach when I went to paint my nails and after not really finding what I was hoping for, I decided on “Pardon My Peach.” Though this is definitely not a soft peach, in the bottle it looked like a deep peach. It’s actually much brighter than I expected! It’s beautiful and kind of nice to look at with the multiple feet of snow outside, but it is pretty damn bright! It will be fantastic in the Summer. I would say it’s almost more of a peachy-coral than peach but it’s a lovely shade nonetheless.

I used 2 coats because it was a bit streaky in one. That surprised me because some of the lighter shades cover so well that I thought a deeper shade might be a one-coater. Regardless, it covered beautifully in two. As I mentioned last week, these seem to last really well on my nails. They are relatively shiny – not gel shiny, but good enough. I used a top coat because I almost always use one to speed drying time. This shade didn’t give me issues with bubbling as some others have. A lovely formula for a lovely shade! J
