What’s In My September Ipsy Bag?

septipsy1

Hello everyone! I hope your week is going well so far. Today I want to share with you what I received in my September Ipsy Bag! I keep falling more and more in love with my Ipsy subscription each time I receive a bag. This month’s theme was Face Fashion, and the photo insert featured natural and golden bronzed looks. I love the bag that everything came it, the textured surface is so pretty and I love the color! It’s perfect for fall.

Let’s take a look at what I received!

Formula X nail polish in Obsessed. This is a dark burgundy shade that’s perfect for fall! I received a Formula X nail polish in a previous Ipsy bag, and the color and quality were amazing! You can check out my review of it here. I like this merlot color even better than the previous peachy shade!

Next up, the Clarisea Sea Salt Solutions Rapid Detox Charcoal Face Exfoliant. That’s a crazy long way to basically say it’s a charcoal face scrub haha. I can’t wait to test this out!

This is the Ultra Repair Cream from First Aid Beauty! I’ve never tried anything from this brand, but I’ve heard really good things about them. Since I have dry skin, this is a perfect product for me to test. I can’t wait to review it for you guys!

This Trestique Matte Lip Crayon in Nantucket Nude is one of my favorite things in this bag. The shade is a perfect “my lips but better” color, and even though it’s matte, it’s not too drying.

And last but not least, this NYX eyeshadow trio! The color palette is designed through Ipsy to match the September theme, so I couldn’t find it to link it. I love the shades though, they’re amazing and extremely pigmented!

Try This At Home- Negative Space Nails

summer nail tutorial

Today I have something simple and fun to share with you! I received this Formula X nail polish in my last Ipsy bag (I’m so obsessed with Ipsy. So. Obsessed.) and I’ve been searching for the perfect way to wear it ever since! It’s a wonderful coral pink shade, perfect for summer! I decided to use it to create an interesting negative space nail design. I’ve been seeing lots of great negative space nails lately, and I think it’s such a cool and laid-back way to wear nail polish for summer. It’s very easy to do, and super easy to customize to your personal style. Here’s how!

You’ll Need:

  • Nail polish of your choice
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Any top coat

I cut my tape into a wave shape and applied it to the top half of my nails, then simply painted over it and removed it, leaving my nails half coral and half bare for my take on the negative space nail trends I’ve been seeing all over lately! I think that this is such a unique way to show your personality, and if you mess up a little, no one will know it wasn’t on purpose! You can cut your tape into any shape you would like in order to put your own spin on this look! I’ve seen some very cool geometric ways of rocking this nail trend.

As for the Formula X nail polish itself, I was extremely impressed! It dries very quickly, and it only took me one coat to reach this level of pigmentation. It’s also a perfect color for summer! I’m very happy with this product and with how my nails turned out!
