A new year is fast approaching so I thought I would post my favorite nail polishes of 2013. These are not in any order, just some of my favorites that I've swatched and worn. I also want to take this time to thank each and every one of you, my readers, for commenting and even stopping by my blog in 2013. I hope for another amazing year in 2014 for blogging and more. See which polishes made my top 10 below!

Sample Saturday - MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash Mascara

Today for Sample Saturday I have a quick review of the MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Lash Mascara in Rich Black. I've heard a lot of great things about this, and I was happy to try a sample first. Even more because this is a high end mascara and for the price, I want to make sure I love it before I buy it. Find out my thoughts on this mascara and if I would buy the full size below!
