Must Have Nail Care Products From Sephora

Its no secrete that I’m a nail prdouct junkie, everything from nail polish to cutcile oils and evreything in between. So I though I’d share my two must have products from Sephora that must be in my stash at all times.

sephora_nailpolishremoverbathIve been using the Express Nail Polish Remover (8 Euros) for years now. Its a quick and effective way to remove your polish. You just stick your finger in the sponge, twist and turn, pull out and bye bye nail polish.

express_nailpolish_removerexpress_nailpolish_remover_1Its a gentle formula that doesn’t dry out the nails yet removes polish, even glitter, in just an instant. One pot lasts me about 6 months of weekly to bi-weekly use. Once the product dries out you can refill a bit with your own nail polish remover, eventually the sponge inside will become completely ripped up and that’s when its time for a new one. But considering the budget friendly cost its no big dent to the wallet.

Instant_Nail&Cuticle_Care_SephoraThe Instant Nail and Cuticle Careย  (9 Euros) is somewhat of a new addition to Sephora and its a great addition indeed. Its the same concept as the nail polish remover but instead the sponge is filled with Camelia Oil and other nourishing and strengthening ingredients like Almond Oil and Gerenoil.

Instant_Nail&Cuticle_Care_Sephora_2Once I’m done saturating each finger I let the oil soak in, then I rub in the excess. It smells delightful, does wonders for my nails, and keeps my cuticles hydrated.

I think these instant beauty wonders are totally worth it, and I cant imagine my nail care stash without them. Whats even cooler, they made a toe friendly version!!!

Summer Sephora Haul

Hey guys ๐Ÿ˜€

So apart from eating loads of good food and hanging out with the family, shopping is one of my favorite holiday activities ๐Ÿ˜€ LOL!! Some may even call it a sport!! Every time I come to the US I load up on makeup and clothing. Especially brands you cant really get out in Europe and certainly not really out in Denmark.

First stop was Sephora to get some products I’ve been wanting to try and repurchases of things I’ve ran out of. So here’s what I got on my fruitful trip to wonderful Sephora on Powell street in SF.

Sephora_Haul

I picked up 2 eye shadow palettes

Sephora_Haul_TooFaced

The Too Faced Loves Sephora Palette ($52). Its a limited edition palette boasting 10 awesome eye shadow shades, two bronzers, a blush, a brush that I’m not excited about, and a mini shadow insurance.

Sephora_Haul_Stilla

I Also picked up the Stilla In The Light Eye Shadow Palette ($39).ย This palette also comes with 10 shades and a smudge proof waterproof eyeliner in Damsel. Ive been eying this bad boy for over a year now. I don’t really need another neutral palette but I just gave in. Plus Ive been wanting to try the Kitten shade for ever!!!!

Sephora_Haul_JosieMaran

The Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream was next on my list ($28). I actually tried to get my brother to pick this up for me before he came to visit at Easter time but they were all sold out. Its meant to be an all over miracle cream. It claims to moisturize, sooth irritated skin, great for dry elbows, keep stray eyebrows in place, smooth flyaways, prevent or sooth razor burn, use as a lip conditioner, the list is endless really!!! Ive heard raving reviews and I’m really excited to try it out. Especially for my super dry elbow and occasional dry patches around my nose and chin.

Sephora_Haul_Buxom

Ive always wanted to try one of the Buxom Full-on Lip Creams ($19). So I picked up one of the newer shades in Mai Tai. Its a super bright coral orange, a shade I’m mighty obsessed with this summer ๐Ÿ˜€

Sephora_Haul_Tarte

And lastly I picked up the Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara ($19). This is my holy grail mascara. Its amazing, especially over the Tarte primer. I ran out a few months ago so I had to pick up another one. I might even get one more back up because who knows when ill be back in the US as Ive got thesis writing coming up next semester.

I’m sure I’ll have plenty more beauty hauls to come. I for sure need to go back to Sephora and pick up a stash of Clarasonic heads, and repurchase my Josie Maran Argan Oil. I also need to pick up a new face wash. I’m using The Philosophy Purity cleanser. Its great but I think I’m ready to try something new since Ive been using that non stop for a year now and its almost done. If you have any suggestions on great cleansers for dry to combination and sensitive skin then please let me know ๐Ÿ˜€

New Handmade Bracelets

Hey beautiful people ๐Ÿ˜€

I’ve had some extra free time on my hands as uni is out and I’m only working weekends so I’ve made a bunch of new bracelets. Ive really been into making and wearing wrap bracelets and braided chain bracelets.ย  The color combos are endless and they look fab when worn together. Not to mention they’re pretty much bang on trend at the moment.

Here are some of my most recent items. They’re all up on my web shop here at binkydiamonds.storenvy.com

I also take custom orders so don’t hesitate to ask for possible color combos or designs :)

I wont be making too many new accessories as I’m leaving for summer vacation in a few days But I’ll have plenty of fun beauty posts as my first stop is in London to see my sister and we’ll be hitting up IMATS!!!!!!! AAHHHHHH OMG I’m so excited. I’ve never been but I’ve heard a lot about it!! I’ve already made a list of all the vendors I want to visit ;D

Then I’ll be heading to San Francisco and LA to visit my parents and brother. I’ll definitely be hitting up Sephora, Ulta, Bays Beauty Supplies (my spot for discounted nail supplies) Nigels Beauty Emporium, Target, Walgreens and where ever else my makeup heart desires ๐Ÿ˜€ so keep a look out for many beauty hauls to come.

I’ll also be doing a fair amount of shopping for clothes…would any of you be interested in seeing fashion hauls and outfits of the day?

Dont forget to follow me on instagram @binkdiamondsย  where I post loads of beauty related items and photos of all the fun things I’ll be doing on my trip.
