Kiss Nail Dress

I am super impressed with the Kiss Nail Dress line. These pictures don't lie, the looks are very colorful and bold which I love--I've been getting compliments from people who saw my nails from over 10 feet away! Seriously though, imagine trying to create this look yourself..glitter, print, colors and all. You don't have to do that with these and it saves so much time. I've never used nail stickers before but I love these and the application was a lot easier and faster than I expected. Literally all you do is choose what size you think is best, carefully peel off the sticker (and they are pretty thick stickers so they don't tear easily) and just stick them on (and I suggest applying the center of the bottom tip near the cuticle first and them smoothing the sticker to the edges) and pile off the excess. Filing off the rest didn't appear as smooth on the tip as I wished, so I actually found that trimming the excess of with a nail clipper (or you could use small scissors) works really well. I did use a nude colored base coat since the stickers appeared to be a bit sheer, and even though you don't need it, I also applied a top coat to enhance the shine and protect the textured surface from getting caught on anything and snagging. There are over 21 designs to choose from that appeal to any age range and are affordable at $6.99 at drugstores and other retailers, so way cheaper to get salon quality nails that last up to 10 days without going to the salon and spending mega bucks. I'm not just saying this, I really love these! It seems like I love everything I blog about but it's all true haha thank you for reading!

NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine

I was super impressed by the New York Color Liquid Lipshine in my Influenster Holiday VoxBox! The only times I've tried products from NYC in the past, I haven't been a big fan of them, but I'm a huge fan of the Liquid Lipshine! The color I received was "Nude York City", a light sheer peach color with a little shimmer throughout it. It smells really good--like coconut, but it doesn't taste like anything. My favorite thing is that it is nice and smooth and not sticky, which is my pet peeve when it comes to lip products. It looks really nice and gives natural shine on the lips and also looks good layered over a darker color on the center of the lip. The applicator is really nice and flexible so you can put it on without a mirror and don't have to worry. I've gotten many compliments on it and I highly recommend it.

Goody QuikStyle!

Even before I had joined Influenster, I had been eyeing the Goody QuikStyle brush! Luckily, I got to try it through the Influenster VoxBox program and I am pretty pleased with this paddle brush. The brush normally costs around $12 at drugstores and department stores. The product features antimicrobial microfiber bristles along with the regular bristles to absorb 30% of moisture and cut down on drying time and side vents for maximum air flow. The microfiber bristles intimidated me a little at first because they look like little germs or something but they are really soft and the normal plastic bristles are more flexible than many other brushes I own, which are gentle to the hair and detangle very very well which is actually the main reason I like the brush. It's really good for me that it detangles and cuts down on drying time with the long thick hair that I have.  The brush is very lightweight and I really like the air vents. It makes it a lot easier and faster to dry my hair as the air flows through the spaces in the sides of the brush.

Here is a view from the side and front of the brush.

I highly recommend this brush, especially to people with long or thick hair who have a hard time getting the tangles out. You can see all the Goody brand products on their website here: and read reviews on the Influenster product page here:
