Nail Polish ~ Wanna Be Your Sunshine by Essence

After buying That’s What I Mint (link here), I was so impressed by the quality of Essence nail polishes that I went back to purchase some more and as 145 Flashy Pumpkin was already on my wishlist (link here) I had to go back anyway. I entered The Sultan Centre Qurum to get only that but ended up buying another bright shade that had me at hello. 😀

137 Wanna Be Your Sunshine is a bright shade of yellow and makes you want to instantly change in to your swim suit and go off to the beach or wear a flowy sundress in white and show off your pretty sunny nails. It is such a happy shade that it lifts your mood too. (Tried and tested, my friend)

It took me about two coats to get a flawless texture and opaque nails. These lasted long too like That’s What I Mint. This is exactly what I love about Essence. They have such pretty nail colors with amazing quality and at such affordable prices. RO 1 for a nail polish is not a bad price especially if you compare it to brands like Rimmel/Revlon that start at RO 3.500 or what we get from exhibitions here (which are considered to be low priced but are not and their quality is super bad too).

I love the packaging too. The bottle is pear shaped and the brush is wide enough to cover your nail in one go. It can also be easily carried in a bag if you are rushing out and don’t have time to paint your nails.

I am very happy I got this color in my nail polish collection.

Which is your favorite sunny nail polish from?

Love

Wishlist #1 ~ Summer Lovin’

Hiee Beoble 😀

Did I ever tell you guys about how bad I am at shopping? Or how annoying I find the whole process? Well not really anymore as I shop quite often now but previously the word shopping itself used to give me headache. I was never a very girly sort of a girl. I was more of a tomboy and anything girly would instantly bug me. As the years went by that part of me started to sober down and now I enjoy a lot of activities that I previously used to hate; shopping for once, cleaning the house, being in the kitchen preparing food, etc.

Lately I have been shopping like a diva and would like to tell you guys I survive on a pocket money as I don’t work yet. I am pretty broke right now because oh I am so good at planning my shopping lists and how-to-save money plans. (Signboard: Sarcasm – for any Sheldon Cooper out there reading this. Ps. I love you) Summer is full swings in Muscat with temperature rising to over 45 degrees in the day and the sun being brighter than any yellow/orange dress I will ever own. Ever single store here is on bumper sale – 50% off, 60% off, 70% off. Days like these I wish I had a very strong saving plan, but I don’t so I shall just look at them with wishful eyes.

To satisfy my broke self I came up with a wish list in hopes of organizing my needs and wants and buy things on priority basis and not succumb to being an impulsive shopper. I know it’s hard not to be one but I also believe that if you work according to a plan it can be avoided. Following is my wish list #1 for summer.

Wishlist #1

1-      The Body Shop Tea Tree facial wash – Because we are having a crazy summer, I need something that will help me fight off oily skin and acne

2-      The Body Shop Tea Tree body wash – I actually have heard a lot about this range from TBS and I want to try it myself to see if it helps acne on body too.

3-      The Body Shop Vitamin E overnight oil-in-serum – skincare, skincare, skincare – how much more can I emphasis on it now. I read quite a lot of good reviews about this product and I want to give it a go as recently my skin hasn’t been like it used to be. It’s rough and breaking out very often. I do believe I need to invest in good skincare products and eat/drink healthy too.

4-      Nike Free Trainers – Summer is the best season to work out and get into shape. No matter you workout indoors or out, you sweat a lot and you lose quickly. I want to lose whatever weight I have gained in my last two college semester and get fit hence I need me some Nike Free Trainers in Mint specifically because Nike is sturdy and Mint is lovely. 😉

5-      Essence 146 That’s What I Mint – now that we have Essence here in Oman I am dying to try their nail polishes. That’s What I Mint is such a soothing mint, I definitely want it in my collection.

6-      Essence 145 Flashy Pumpkin – 10 points to you if it reminded you of the Slutty Pumpkin from How I Met Your Mother. Flashy Pumpkin is a mix of Peachy Orange and I find it so attractive. Summer is all about bright colors.

7-      GAP Sandals – These lovely sandals were posted by Angie on her blog and immediately caught my attention. They are exactly what I have been wanting. Most of the stores are coming up with similar styles and I think I will go bankrupt trying to buy them all. Love these. Really hoping I can get my hands on them. *fingers crossed* (PS. Angie has a lovely blog. You should head over there are give hers a read and follow her too. You won’t regret it 🙂 )

I hope you enjoyed my wish list and this might have helped you in adding a little something to your own wish list. If you are making a wish list do let me know as I will be more than happy to read your wish list and blog too. 🙂

Till next time,

Love yourself often and enough!
