Yaíll. I couldnít be more excited about the review I am doing today. First, I was excited because it was for… (wait for it, wait for it, wait for it)… TARGET! It’s like the mother ship has called me home! I am probably the most frequent Target shopper ever. I do my grocery shopping there, my birthday present shopping there, my clothes shopping there, my kids shopping there. I’m there a LOT. So, I was pretty stoked to be doing a review for Target in the first place.
But then I read the email about the product they were asking me to review. BEAUTY PRODUCTS!!! As my Grandma says, I was tickled pink! They sent me this little box full of a beauty line by makeup guru Sonia Kashuk that is available at Target. I used everything right there on the spot in my living room on my couch. I put on the Illuminating Bronzer (which I have now switched to after years of being a MAC girl), beautiful eye shadow with sparkle to it that is somehow still appropriate for adults to wear (remind me to tell you later about those years in high school when I went through a glitter phase with my friends and literally rolled glitter glue all over my face until my parents said I had to stop because I looked like a stripper… this isnít that kind of glitter, folks), and nail polish in gorgeous summer colors.
I was all prepared to rave about it all because I loved it all, but then I read the email again and realized all I had to review was the Sonia Kashuk Nail Colour! So, that is what I will review. But in my heart, I know that I love the whole line. So does my face. And my toenails.
The nail polish came at a great time for me because it’s in the 90s every day here and sandal season is in full swing. I have been badly in need of a pedicure, but you know how it goes with money and daycare and groceries and purchases of onesies for my soon-to-be nephew. The pedicure kept getting pushed to the back of the necessities list. But with the Sonia Kashuk Nail Colour, the opaque coverage is so thick and shiny that it looks like I had a pedicure in just one coat of polish. Fo’ reals.
Plus, it does not chip. At all.
I am terrible with pedicures because I chip them usually in the same day. But here is the day that I received the product almost three weeks ago…
And here is a picture of my toes today…
There is not one chip, and it’s still shiny, too! I figured I’d try all three colors over a few weeks so that I could review them, but this darn polish hasn’t chipped at all! And I love this color, so I haven’t had any desire to change it. It’s called Golden Ticket Nail Colour and it matches all of my summer sandals.
But just for you guys, I changed my polish tonight to show you the other two colors. I sacrifice so much for you all. I used the Tango Mango on my toes and they look delicious! These are definitely beach toes. You can’t lose these puppies in the sand.
And here are my nails with Fairy Princess Nail Colour. I’ve never been one for colors on my fingernails, but this is so subtle that I actually really love it. It adds a little punch to my everyday style, I think. And my students said it makes me look cool, so that’s something.
Overall, I can’t rave about these enough. And not just because they were from Target, although my devotion to that holy place is strong enough that I would have raved even if they’d told me to paint my nails in water and then review it. They just made my job much easier because this polish is so great.
