Paradise Island

Take me down to Paradise Island…where the…wait, that’s not how that song goes.

This is the polish from this month’s ipsy bagdefy & Inspire “Paradise Island”. I’ve never heard of this brand before – totally new to me. (I think they just started carrying it at Target.) It reminds me of the beach in Hawaii – just clear blue/green as far as the eye can see.

I started with Sally Hansen Diamond Shine – I like to mix it up sometimes. The first coat was ultra-streaky and I got nervous, but the second coat was as smooth as a dolphin’s ass. I finished with “HK Girl”. I was a bit miffed that the edges got so crinkly around my cuticles, but it’s not horrible.

April Ipsy Bag – Sideshow

I literally SQUEALED when I opened this month’s ipsy bag and saw the Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Blush Brush. Who didn’t have EVERYTHING Lisa Frank back in the 80s? So psyched to get a pre-release from this new collection!

Also in this month’s “Sideshow” bag”: H2O+ Beauty Keep It Fresh Cleanser (I am loving getting to try so many new cleansers); Luseta Beauty Volume Reviving Dry Shampoo in “Potpourri”; defy & Inspire Wear Resistant Nail Lacquer in “Paradise Island”; and ColourPop Cosmetics Crème Gel Pencil in “Show Me”vivid true copper (I was assuming this would be blue based on the color of the box, but I was wrong).

Is it me, or are ipsy bags getting WAY better?
