Milani Color Statement Nail Polish in Enchanting Swatch and Review

Stop the presses, I've found the perfect Fall nail polish! This is Milani Color Statement Nail Lacquer in Enchanting. It is an absolutely perfect, very deep and very vampy blackened red. This is my ideal Autumn polish! So chic yet very wearable, and it looks great on shorter nails. The formula is excellent, shown is two coats of Enchanting with one coat of Milani Quick Dry Topcoat. Enchanting applies very smoothly and dries pretty quickly as well. I forsee this polish getting a lot of use this season! What do you think of this oxblood shade?

And how sweet is the little Amore perfume?

EOS & Rachel Roy Limited Edition Lip Balm Sphere Collection

Now that the weather is turning cooler, I'm missing Summer already! Thankfully, a little sliver of Summer is back with these awesome new EOS Lip Balm Spheres. EOS has teamed up with acclaimed fashion designer Rachel Roy (known for dressing Michelle Obama, Jennifer Garner, Tyra Banks, Penelope Cruz, and more..) to bring us these tropical and sunny colors and flavors. Rachel curated the new Spheres, which all come embossed with her iconic "wing" design. They are available in a set of three that includes Indian Summer (Orange Blossom), St. Barth's Sunrise (Pink Grapefruit) and Aloha Hawaii (Strawberry Kiwi), plus stand alone flavor Barbados Heat (Wildberry) that is sold individually. I love EOS spheres, does anyone else have a huge collection of them or is it just me? :) They're so cheerful and cute, and plus they work so wonderfully. Very moisturizing and never sticky. They're all great but I think my favorite flavor out of this set is the St. Barth's Sunrise. I love the refreshing Pink Grapefruit scent and flavor.  The price point is great, too. The three pack retails for 9.99 while the Barbados Heat Sphere sells individually for 3.49. All four new flavors are pictured together above. You can find these at Target or but act fast because these limited edition goodies will be gone as quick as Summer was!! :)
