Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Colors (3 Shades) - Photos and Swatches


I recently bought some of the Sally Hansen Triple Shine nail polishes at a local CVS. These colors are gorgeous and probably the most shiny that I have used without needing a top coat. The three shades I have are called Dive In, Statemint, and Slick Black. These are super shiny and stay on for about a good week with very minimal chipping. It's always good to get Sally Hansen on sale when you can or use a coupon. See swatches below!

Sample Saturday: Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream

I have a quick review for Sample Saturday of the Smashbox Camera Ready CC Cream. This sample actually lasted me for a couple of weeks which was nice. I actually start using BB creams and CC creams more when it starts to get hot outside. Foundation can sometimes be heavy so something like this is what I like to wear more often in the Summer. Find out more on this CC cream below!
