Flower Beauty May Flowers

MAY11

Hello! Long time no see! Like many people in the US, I had a pretty busy Fourth of July, but was mostly taking advantage of having a couple of sort of days away from my computer. It is rare that I can do that with my job, so when the opportunity arises, I jump on it. Anyway, I have a lovely pink shade to show you today: May Flowers from the Flower Beauty line!

I have to say, I like these Flower polishes. The colors are nice and the formula is decent too! I have to say that this one was a little watery and not as pigmented as the other shades I’ve tried; however, it is still a pretty color. It’s kind of a “mature” pink, good for those who are working in conservative offices but still want some color. Even though it is pink, it has a bit of a purple hint to it.

What do you think of this shade?

Spring Sparkle Manicure with Missha Orange Stone Glitter

I have a color combination to show you today that I love: minty green with light peach! To create this manicure, I used Flower nail polish in Thistle or That?, and Missha Crystal polish in Orange Stone. If you are not familiar with Missha, it is a South Korean cosmetic brand. I love their BB cream, so when I saw this polish on Pinterest, I went on eBay right away to find it!

The Missha polish is just like Essie’s larger glitter polishes, like A Cut Above or Stroke of Brilliance. I haven’t seen anything in the US that is peach colored like this polish, and I love how it looks paired with the mint green!

This glitter is SO jam packed as well. It could easily be worn alone because it is so dense. If you like chunky glitters, I definitely recommend tracking down this one by Missha!

Alphabet Challenge: Flower That’s Just Dan-De-Lion

Hello! It is a BEAUTIFUL sunny day here and I am so happy to see it shining! I have a new brand to show you in this latest alphabet challenge installment: Flower Cosmetics That’s Just Dan-De-Lion. I’m not sure what’s with the weird hyphens on the name of this…am I missing something here?

Anyway, this is a pretty polish. I had no idea what to expect from Flower. If you don’t already know, this is Drew Barrymore’s Wal-Mart exclusive cosmetics line that supposedly is made with high end ingredients. The low cost is justified by Drew doing the promo work so they don’t have advertising. I have no idea if this is true or not, but it sounds good, right?

This color is a light, peachy shade with some shimmer. The shimmer is very fine and shows up much better in person. This is three coats, but it looks fine with two, just a little sheer. Surprisingly this was not streaky. The formula is on the thicker side, so it performs best with thin coats.

Have you tried this line at all?
