E.L.F Nail Polish
I've often heard of E.L.F but has never used any of the products. I'm glad to have gotten these polishes because, one: I didn't have any of the colors and they are pretty! You can purchase this online for $2 at E.L.F Cosmetics
Twinkle is a typical micro-glitter, nothing special but pretty nonetheless. I layered it over Mint Cream in the pic below. One coat added a nice sparkle, but I added two coats to dazzle, hehehe!
|Camera phone, I tried =/|
Mint Cream is, in my opinion, accurately described. I like the color, my husband does not... It was random. *shrugs* Men. The only problem I had is probably with the brush [since I didn't have this problem with Smokey Brown], it made the application streaky. It took 3 coats for full opacity.
|It's a little blurry...|
Smokey Brown is a dark taupe or caramelized toffee. I was actually surprised that I liked this color because I was sure I wouldn't based off the bottle. I took 3 different pics because it looks different in each light, lol. It took 2 coats for full opacity.
|L2R: Lowlight, Flash, Natural|
Carmalized Toffee > Dark Taupe > Smokey Brown
W7 Crackle Nail Polish
I am not going to spend much time on this AT ALL, because it was a FAIL to the umph'd degree. I was so disappointed. But hey, every polish can't be great right?

Sleek MakeupOne of my besties, Ash from The Pretty Pisces, is forever going on about Sleek. I remember when her Sleek Palette finally arrived in the mail [Duff, I think?] she was so excited. Her excitement wan over into me so when I learned that I had won one, I was geek'd. My palette is Divine, The Original and since it didn't come with any names, I named them myself. =)
I was sad to open up my box to see one of the shadows broken & partly crumbled. =( But! I just pressed the shadow down to compact and hold it. =)
The colors go L2R:
Smother Me | Perfectly Purple | Underneath the Deep | Above the Surface | Sea me Wave | Kelp! | Bubble Trouble | Ariel's Wish | Diamonds in the Sand | Under Atlantis | Metal Detector | King's Gold
|Top: Broken; Middle: Flash; Bottom: Natural|
"The Original i-Divine palette contains a variety of highly-pigmented colours, ranging from green to purple, allowing you to create endless looks fit for day or night.
The velvet-touch consistency gives full and shimmering coverage to the eye lid for maximum effect. Each of the 12 shades can be applied alone for a dramatic effect or mixed to create a personalised look." Retail at $10
