Ask Tips for Toes Challenge Update

I've been battling some serious health stuff so my toes kinda fell by the way side but DAYUM they are really changing!

As you can see there has been major growth on both feet! the nails are such a natural color! I'm almost to the point of not caring if my nails are painted or not because they don't look nearly as bad as they did when I started this!  I'm now hyper vigilant about making sure I get it on the toes several times a day :) I love going around barefoot and even more so now!

I'll be putting the pix after the jump for peeps that don't want to see them :)  if you wanna see the change, check out the jump!

Cult Nails Charming

omg I love this color! I love the whole Fairy Tale Collection actually! The pictures below were done 2 days after applying and still in great shape! I will also be adding a pix of each color with Happy Ending for the 5th review.  It has an opalescent sheen to it!  I am a HUGE purple lover and I can't stop staring at this hand! All pictures were taken with my Nikon D80. You can buy this color or any other clicking the link on the right side of my blog!  What do you guys think of this? Are there any colors you are drooling for?

 Inside natural light
Outside in the sun! (scared the UPS driver while taking this... didn't see me :) )
This is outside.  it really doesn't do it justice!

June MyGlam!

June Glam Bag!


Philosophy Moisturizer- Not seen it before but sounds like another great one to try! Lightweight is always a good thing. 
Nyx Round Lipstick- I love this! I got the color Saturn.
Living Proof- Anti Frizz is perfect for my hair! it gets so frizzy with the humidity! love this!
Marbella eyeliner- This is so great!Water-proof, Smudge free, semi-permanent eyeliner! I think I might buy more of these!

Ok so this month they approved a bit! Made me not cancel it yet to see how they try and improve as they have said they are. Pix of the individual products etc. are after the jump.  What do you guys think? Do you have this subscription? Have you cancelled? Will you give MyGlam a shot?  I must say the bag was very cheap material.  That's the only negative I had this month. Link up on the left if you want to give them a try!

June Birchbox!

The Insert  
The Descriptions!
The Samples!

Borghese Eye Compresses- ohhh this will be fun to try!  I wonder if they will help with migraines.
Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint- I have another one of these and love them!
Scalisi Skincare- Seems interesting but not needed by me yet. I'm sure I'll find someone to give it to.
TheBalm- So cool! perfect for touch up or a change up during the day!
Lifestyle Extra- Band-Aid- I was one of the fortunate ones to get these!  so cute!  What a great idea!
Birchbox Man Extra- John Varvatos- while I have no sense of smell, I'm sure it smells great! Def have guys that would wear it!
All in all I loved this box!  So glad I joined this subscription!  Oh there was also an insert for What do you guys think? Do you have a subscription? no?  Link on the left sidebar! It is a must join for only $10 a month! Close up pix of all products after the page break.

Target June Bag

So this is the first time I'm doing a post on the Target bags but without further adieu:

The Bag
The Samples

Revlon Color Burst- Really pretty color! I also got Coupons for all the products in a little pamphlet.
Aveeno Smart Essentials- I like aveeno so this was a nice one to add to my collection!
Neutrogena Sunblock- perfect travel size for a day at the beach etc.
Tres Semme Split Ends Treatment- I currently have split ends and always willing to try hair treatments.
Garnier Fructis- I don't have colored hair so it won't help me but a nice addition and will pass along to someone that can use it!

I am putting pix of each individual after the jump. I really like the bag! Little bigger than my hand and I love the color!  This was a fun bag this month! I've enjoyed this bag more than some others I have gotten in recent months... :)

Anyone else get this? what'd you think?

Essence Stampy Set and Plates

omg you guys! I've been searching for these forEVER! with the pictures I have seen online etc. I thought it was MUCH bigger than it actually is! That's why I wasn't seeing it! I wasn't looking for something so small! But, they are perfect for my fingers! You guys! These plates are literally like the size of a business card!  I'll show you some pictures:

 These were held with my thumb and first finger
Pix of the other plates I got.  I'll update later with a pix of it next to a business card.

May Cravebox! A Taste of the Tropics!

Apparently, because the Cravebox has been sold out since its inception, a lot of people have asked me what it was when I mention it!  It is another subscription box that is $10 a month.  This is one that is more geared towards every day things to help with health, wellness, and beauty.

FYI they are having a Cravebox Taste of the Tripocs Twitter part tonight at 9PM EST!  RSVP (on their facebook page) for a chance to win.

New To Twitter Parties?
No problem. Check out SheSpeaks' TweetGrid 101 Video Twitter Party Tips and Hints Then get ready to jump into the conversation!  Also, share your handle on their facebook page so they can say hello!

I was lucky enough to win one of the few May slots they had open after I thought I'd lost out so I was super excited waiting for it to show up!  I have to say, for $10, it is well worth the cost with what you get! Mine came yesterday and without further adieu I give you the May Cravebox!

 Opening the box! 
The goodies!
The Welcome Card!
Descriptions of the goodies!
Pix after the jump of each product and my thoughts!

Overall, I was very impressed and didn't find one thing I would't try or scoff at! That is a very good sign with me because I'm finicky :)  I look forward to seeing how they continue to grow because I know of at least one other box they did that was fantastic unlike other companies I have reviewed!  You can check them out via the link on the left side of my bog.

Ask Tips for Toes Toenail Challenge Week 3 update!

I know, I've been adding more and more days in a week.  I'm sorry!  I am extremely sick with anemia and other stuff I have to have a catscan for tomorrow.

With what I was able to do this week, The nails have pretty much completely gone to a more natural color!  I'm not cutting up my sheets!  Even the pinkie toe on the right is almost a natural color!  I'm loving this stuff and really appreciate ASK letting me participate in this! I have a lot of cool colors I can't wait til the end to see just what my nails can become!

I'll do a page cut just to be nice to you guys for the pix :)

This Weeks Haul

As You can see I have completed my Bootie Babe collection.  I now have them all! The Hot Lips and Zoya were free from Zoya thanks to that cute Share the Love button the the left side of my blog! I acquired a bunch of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry colors!  I got 1 Sally Hansen Magnetic.  There is an HD Sally Hansen back there along with an OPI DS Coronation, and OPI You Don't Know Jacques! There's a Pure Ice  in there and then all the Neons from Sinful Colors!  lots of fun soon to be had :)

Hope y'all have a great week!
