Indie Spotlight: Candy Lacquer (w/Milani Key West)

Today I'm wearing a mani that I absolutely LOVE!  The base color is Milani Key West and then I added an Indie Polish Glitter Topcoat made by Candy Lacquer called High Tide. It's glitter in a clear coat so it can be applied over all types of colors.  This combination is mermaid nails made easy :) Candy Lacquer polishes can be purchased HERE at Etsy. Currently the shop is empty, but you can be notified via email when the store is restocked.

I really love how this came out. It's late night and I was a little bit in a rush doing this mani, but I still love the results.

This is my first Candy Lacquer Polish and it will not be my last lol. I thought this would be extremely gritty and bumpy, but with one coat of SV it is smooth as glass. (**please note: these picture were all prior to applying the SV topcoat - which was an after thought to smooth things out)

Do you guys like?  I LOVE! Candy Lacquer has now been added to my favorite list!

This is my second post today so make sure you scroll down and check out my facial masks/scrubs series.

Freeman - #1 Enzyme Mask Pinnapple

I'm back with a Freeman Series of face scrubs and masks.  This series will be similar to my Montagne Jeunesse Masks Series. I will have both products going at the same time, and alternate between the two companies. I will add these as FREEMAN MASKS and the others as MONTAGNE JEUNESSE MASKS in my LABELS section in the bottom left sidebar so you can separate the two companies easily
This week I'm using FREEMAN: Enzyme Mask Pineapple

I purchased a few of the Freeman Masks and I will review them all in the next several weeks.  The packaging on these is not as clever as the Montagne Jeunesse Masks, but they are just as eye catching to me.

The mask I am reviewing today is not a mud mask, but an enzyme scrub. The consistency on this is very different than a mud mask. Though it is smooth, it has a gentle exfoliating property to it. It's very minimal and you really have to roll this around between your fingers to feel the small micro scrubbing beads in this. It's a gentle exfoliator versus a smooth mud mask.

The instructions are to apply it to your face for 10 minutes, allow it to dry and then rinse.  This is transparent once you apply it to your face, and it has a very nice cool sensation when you first apply. As this drys on your face it does not tighten at all like a mud mask. It's feels very flexible on the face and transparent. 

The smell on this one is fabulous. I smelled both pineapples and bananas, and it was very 'tropical smelling' to me. I felt like I was drinking a Pina Colada getting lost on a beach somewhere lol. If you are looking for a nice escape - this is it!
Once I rinsed it off my face, it felt soooooooo GOOD. My skin was very smooth and soft feeling. The smell lingered for a bit so you want to keep that in mind if you are sensitive to smells.

 I am just as impressed with this mask as I was the Montagne Jeunesse Mask I reviewed last week. This line is also inexpensive at about $1.50-$1.99 per mask. I really didn't have high expectations, and now I have a different respect for these types of masks.

Here are past masks in the Montagne Jeunesse Series that are posted as of today:

I would love to hear what you guys think on either of these products. Do you love them? Hate them? Leave your comments below.

Thanks for visiting today!
