Review: Migi Nail Art....

Tuesday, October 20, 2009


The good folks over at Migi Nail Art sent me these nail art pens to play with:) I got a pearl white color,a white color, a green color, and a black color....

Each color comes with a brush and a tip...one for full nail color and the other for the art....
( with flash) This is the design I came up with last night....lol! Ya'll know I'm not this bold on nail design but I like it, its fun and Lord knows I need some fun in my life!!

(Without the flash)

Pros:
-The colors are intense and opaque. I did two coats and got the look I wanted. I really like that white and black. There are like Wite-Out and Black Ink.

-The art tip is lends a different look to nail art. I love the "brush stroke" of nail art, using a nail brush, but with the tip you can be more "sketchy"....


Cons:
-The dry time for both the nail color side and nail art pen is horrible. I did two thin coats of the colors and it took 30 minutes and it was still tacky. The pen art was even worse. Another 30 mins and it wasn't dry. I finally put a Quick dry nail polish on it and smeared the art but I didn't care. I just wanted it dry. A hour on dry time is ridiculous.


Consensus:
-I'm sure I'll used them again but doubt an serious investment in them. I researched and found an entire set, all colors( 5 set package) is in the $100 range. Not the the ever-so-often-nail-art enthusantist! But they do have like neon color and primary color sets for $24.99. I could live with the neon set.:)

Review: Physicians Formula Organic wear® 100% Natural Origin Facial Makeup Remover Towelettes

I very excited to finally find Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Facial Remover Towelettes....

.....and find it in all places, my local Wal- Mart. My local Wal- Mart is like a low grade super center. Its doesn't have a Auto Center, Seafood Counter, Mickey D's or any kind of restaurant. The beauty department still has a full displays of Max Factor and Iman( that looks untouched).


Pros:

-The wipe or "towelette" works great with removing all of my makeup...except my eye makeup( see Cons)
-The towelette was moisturized just enough. It wasn't sopping wet.
-Smelled fresh. Great scent


Cons:
-The container sucked. Each time I pulled out a towelette, the top would come off. Then I would have to pull the next wipe back thru manually. That made me sooo mad....

-You only get 25 wipes for like 8.38. Not cost effective.

-It didn't get the my eye makeup off very good. And I'm not just talking mascara, like my eye shadow was still on my eyes after a good four strokes over them.



Consensus:
Pass on it. I actually took the thing back. I can buy a box of baby wipes cheaper and they would be more effective.
