Absolutely obsessed with this nail polish. The formula is Essie's best yet and that brush? That brush is the best on the market hands down. This nail polish is a little more pricey than I'd like, but I think it's worth it based on the formula, longevity of wear, and how pretty all of the colors are!
Are you hesitant to try this polish? Don't be. If you learn how to use it correctly, it's going to be your best friend! Yes... it's a little more pricey than I would like for it to be, but can you really put a price on a great bottle of nail polish? I mean... that brush is fantastic. I consider myself fairly skilled at polishing (I don't get it all over my cuticles), but their new brush offers amazing control so you can get really close without making a mess.
First off... Pro Tip: Buy this from Wayfair. It's way cheaper that way because there are usually good sales on cat tress.
Regardless, I would have spent more - that's how great this cat tree is. It comes in a few colors - beige, brown, navy, and black. There may be more for all I know. We chose black to go better with our neutral decor.
Keep in mind the height on this since it's almost 6 feet tall. I had a friend buy one too not thinking about her lower ceilings and her poor silly cats have a really hard time jumping into the top tier.
This cat tree is sturdy, heavy, and looks really nice out in the open or in a corner. All 3 of our cats LOVE it. I bought this to try to deter them from scratching up a new couch we bough at the same time. Figured if I was getting new furniture... so should they! haha A little catnip spray on the cat tree once a week (especially on the MANY scratching posts this thing has) works wonders.
I have heavy cats ranging from 11 to 16 pounds and all 3 of them can be on this tree at the time time without problems.
My family has 3 cats all of which are 2 years old or younger - so still quite frisky (if you'll pardon the pun haha). The 3 of them have been through several collars over the last couple of years between growing out of smaller, kitten collars to shredding up collars during play.
These have stood up beautifully! I'm impressed with the quality of the collars and there's a great selection of choices beyond just these - including some with a cute, glow in the dark pattern on them.
I love that these are a little more difficult for the cats to get off. They feature a safety snap like other pet collars, but while I find it just as easy to remove for myself, the cats have only ever lost their collars once since they've been wearing them.
This is by far, my favorite hair styling product. I received this in a VoxBox a while back and I was destroyed... absolutely destroyed when I ran out of it. I went to 2 Targets and 3 Walgreens looking for this stuff! Yes, it's that awesome. I finally found it at an Ulta and it was actually not expensive at all. I'm so impressed.
It smells amazing. It's kind of a mind trip because it smells sweet and sugary - like vanilla frosting. But oh no... it's just the best mousse ever. It's not sticky. It gives great volume and shape... and yet your hair is touchably soft.
I like to run some through my barely damp hair, style and then use a tiny amount on the back of my pixie cut for some texture. My hair has never looked better.
Zoya is easily one of my favorite brands of nail polish. The 5-free formula is great no matter the type (cream, jelly, glitter, etc) and the brush is easy to manage. The color-lock system is no joke. If you do it right, it works and it lasts.
I adore their Naked Manicure System. If you haven't tried it, I strongly suggest it. I have brittle, peeling nails. I ran out of the Naked Base Coat a few weeks ago and switched to another popular base coat. Within the week, my nails were flaking and breaking. Ugh! I ordered a new bottle of the Naked Base Coat (which I wear under polishes of every brand now!) and with just 1 use, my nails were much stronger and more happy.
This is a great, full-coverage foundation. While it's on the pricey side (usually about $35 at Sephora), it's worth every penny. Paired with a damp beauty blender sponge, it offers flawless coverage - even for someone like me with mild rosacea. The best part is that their lightest shade works well for super pale skin.
No caking. No smudging (especially if you pair it with any of their similarly priced primers and setting powders). I used to wear this while working at a jewelry & watch repair shop where my face was often over a steam cleaning machine. At the end of a 9 hour shift, I still had my makeup!
Essie is a great brand with a nice selection of different formulas. Personally, I prefer jelly and holos over creams and they have quite a few of each type. I love that they come out with sets (although my wallet does not! ha). I feel like Essie keeps up with trends for me so that I don't have to do the dirty work of figuring it out.
Great formula. It's a little on the thin side so you have to be careful about loading the brush too heavily if you don't want a drippy mess. It's definitely not the right bottle for someone who isn't skilled at nail painting. It has a great shine, beautiful pigment and coats well in 2-3 layers.
OPI is hit or miss with its formulas. And for $7-10 per bottle, I expect better. Sometimes, I feel like I get better quality from much cheaper brands. They do have a really great color selection which is probably their biggest perk. But like almost everything in life, you are paying more for the brand name than for the product itself. Try branching out to some cheaper brands and use a good base and top coat (which you should be doing anyways). You'll find yourself surprised.
