Ok, so, I'M IN LOVE WITH THIS POT OF PEPPERMINT PERFECTION.
First, dat smell. You know how some mint/peppermint-scented things don't have that 'punch' to them and are just plain underwhelming? Not this. This is intensely peppermint. Gorgeously so. Love!
Second, those feels. Sinking tired, aching feet into a tub of hot water + these delicious salts is heavenly. The combination of the scent and the minty tingle soothes my feet like nothing else. The best treat after a long, shitty day.
The price is a liiiittle better now that TBS has reduced prices (it's now $18.95 instead of $23.95), so if you've got a little spare coin and you enjoy treating your feet, give this a whirl.
Sometimes, it's fun to veer from the ordinary and do something a little spesh on your nails. Here are some of my favourite slightly-quirky/unusual/'special' polishes...
Ulta3 stop the press
I went on a citywide search for this damn polish, but boyyy was it worth it! This little black-and-white polkadot/glitter beauty makes every and any polish adorable. Slapped on a pink that looks boring and uninspiring on its own? Chuck on a coat of this and voila! Cuteness overload.
Sally Hansen Lustre Shine Plume
A fairly recent buy that is already one of my ultimate 'special' polish faves. This
metallic green-gold-copper looks ridiculously cool on the nails. I blogged about it here.
Orly Sweet Peacock
I recently re-discovered
this stunner after months of tossing it aside. WHAT WAS I THINKING? This
electric-blue foil is super vibrant and can be spotted from approximately 2.7km
away. Perfect. China Glaze Snow Globe
My favourite glitter in the entire Universe. I love the different glitter bits and their almost-ethereal colours. Layering this over a soft blue or pastel pink makes me want to weep sweet tears of joy. It almost looks like I've sprinkled tiny, little beads onto my mani.
Orly does a damn good foil! This silver-chrome foil is fucking sick. If you're after a proper silver foil polish that has a chrome-like finish, seek this baby out.
I've given myself one IMATS rule - NO LIP PURCHASES!!!!11!1!!1!! aside from Lime Crime's Velvetine in Utopia. Because it's that amazing. So, in the spirit of my Lime Crime exception, I thought I'd blog about my little Lime Crime lip loot.
My first venture into the world of the holographic unicorn. Fuck, I love this lippie. It's a deep-but-not-scary-deep purple that is just heavenly. Goes on nicely (obvs requires a bit of effort with application, but that's to be expected with darker shades) and has lovely semi-shine finish. Plus, it smells good (they all do!). Well done.
Airborne Unicorn Lipstick
This is the shade that made me fall in love with Lime Crime. I can't remember when and where I first saw it, but it got me. Instantly. This lippie is a beautiful, kinda dusty violet which offers a slightly strange dichotomy of vibrant and subtle (I know it looks cray, but once it's on the face, it's not so 'intense'). It's weird, but oh-so-wonderful.
Red Velvet Velveteen
Lawd. This bold, true-red is fierce as fuck. If you're a red girl, you need Red Velvet in your life. The formula is thin, smooth and workable, but shit, can it be tricky! Patience required. If you can make it through the application, you'll be greeted with a killer red lip that does not budge.
