[Review] GEO Honey Wing Lenses

I haven't done a Circle lens reviews in a while! Unfortunately, my GEO Fresh Color Gray lenses (my favorite) ripped! I recently bought GEO Honey Wings, which I've had my eyes on (heh :P) for a while. I was looking for lenses which had a more natural look, and these are it!

color/design: I LOVE the color & design. At first I was a little disappointed that the color wasn't lighter on my eyes, but it's great for a more natural look! My coworkers didn't notice I wore these lenses until I told them. 9/10
comfort: I wore these for 7 hours at work today. I felt no discomfort at all, apart from when first putting them on. I just cleaned it a little bit more with solution & tadaaa! I forgot I was even wearing lenses today! haha 9/10
enlargement: These lenses don't have that great of an enlargement. It's only 14mm in diameter. There are other lenses out there that will enlarge better than this one. 6/10

All in all, I think Honey Wing is great for people who want to try out circle lenses for the first time. It's comfortable, has a natural look, and that wing/halo effect adds a fresh appearance to your eyes. I would definitely try out the other lenses in the GEO Wing series! I'm actually thinking about getting lenses that are larger than 14mm, but I'm a little scared it would look weird on me...

I also got an asymmetrical bob today! My hair was getting poofy and shapeless~haha

Here's a picture with less of a zombie-like stare xD haha

Closer look!

Remember! My giveaway will end on July 20th (12AM EST) ^^ Good luck everyone!

[NOTD] More Green & A Heads Up!

I think i have too many Green polishes! Green is my favorite color, so It catches my attention most of the time I'm shopping! haha I really need to stop xD

I was at Target a few days ago and spotted this Nicole by OPI nail polish in the clearance section (more like a small clearance basket) with my eagle eyes!
This is a Nicole by OPI nail polish called "Peas and Q's" I have never seen this shade before, plus it was in the clearance section AAAND it looked Minty Green, so you know I grabbed this quickly! haha .It was only $4.xx and I had a $1.00 off coupon for Nicole by OPI nail polish, so it dropped down to $3.xx. Woohoo!

Peas and Q's is a gorgeous mint creme nail polish. I used 3 coats. I'd say CG Re-freshmint is still my favorite Mint polish, but this one comes really close.

I used my leftover Nail Art stickers & Sinful Colors "Call You Later" to jazz it up a bit.

As some of you know, I work at ROSS, a discount store. I usually get first dibs on the items when it comes into the store! haha For the past few weeks, my store has been getting some great Borghese products. If you love Borghese products or just want to try them out, but don't wanna pay retail price, check out your local ROSS store. I was so excited when I saw these! Normally they would cost $7~$15, but got these babies for under $5! These products go fast though!

Rapido Cuticle Remover, Perfetto Smudge Remover, Intensiva Cuticle Cream, & Rejuvenata Cuticle Oil

REMINDER: You still have a few days to join my giveaway! Please check it out ^^

[Swatch] Ohh the Flakie Goodness!

I've looked in many Rite Aids, Walgreens , Targets, Walmarts, etc.. in my area but i have not found the coveted Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure nail polish in any one of them! It really does live up to its name (especially the Hidden part LOL)! Because of this, I decided to do some research to find some other flakie nail polish out there that was easier to acquire. I found some swatches online of Maybelline Colorama Sonic Sunset & Shimmer Girl ....It was love at first sight! (I saw them at Steph's Closet)! I was on another mission! Unfortunately, I learned that these were discontinued & can't be found in stores anymore. I did some more searching and found a seller on Amazon carrying them! Of course, I jumped right to it and bought both plus another top coat from Maybelline Colorama, called Frosty pink (will swatch in a diff post!)

Shimmer Girl

Sonic Sunset

These are my very first flakies~I want more! Flakies are lovelovelove! The way the light hits it & the attention it gets because of the unique look (especially from the customers at my job who stop me to ask if they could look at my nails xD) ...I can't get enough! I'm not going to give up my search for Hidden Treasure in stores though~ I'm also thinking about buying Nfu Oh & Nubar flakie polish in the near future.

On to the picture! Excuse my stubby looking ring finger! I broke my nail at work :((((

I used OPI Ogre the Top Blue as the base.
Index finger has Shimmer Girl, 2 coats. Middle Finger has Sonic Sunset, 2 coats.

mhmm look at the flakie goodness!

Check it out!
