Come Clean Soap

Come Clean Soap sent to review by HeyDoYou

For immediate release: Lifestyle, Beauty, Street Style, New York, Trend Editors
Introducing the Beauty Collection($12)
Made wtih All Natural Vegetable Glycerin and Coconut Oils

This all natural soap is handpoured and made fresh in New York City! These whimsical soap bars are beautiful, natural and gentle on skin.

Available in 4 scents Speckled Horchata, Precious Gold, Black Sesame and White Coconut

I received White Coconut to review.

White Coconut – Dessicated coconut bits is a natural exfoliating soap that is anti-microbial and can heal the damage or the visible marks of that skin.

I absolutely love the smell of coconut! It reminds me of my honeymoon…a cruise to the Caribbean. All of the bath and body products they had for us in our room were coconut-scented. So the smell of coconut makes me smile!



It didn’t take too long to figure out what kind of mani to do to show off the soap. A simple glimmer white with a small, but beautiful accent!



This is two coats of Zoya Ginessa. What a gorgeous color! And see that cute little flower? It was in a pack of flower pieces I received from Just the Polish. I put it on with a little dab of super glue. And it it a little pliable so I used tweezers to help it bend around the curve of my nail. I think it looks great!

Back to the soap; how delicious it is! (And no, I didn’t eat it!) It was really sudsy and felt really nice. When I rinsed it off, there wasn’t an overwhelming coconut scent, just the smell of clean.

You can find out more about Come Clean on their website along with a link to their etsy shop where you can purchase the soaps from their beauty collection as well as soaps with fun figurines inside!

You can also find them on Instagram at @comecleansoap.

Zoya NATUREL DEUX (2) Collection

Media samples

Ooh, I was so excited to see the press release for this set come to my inbox. (Never mind that it came from a different email address than I was expecting and I almost missed it!)

From the press release:

Inspired by the desire to expand the popular neutral palette of the Zoya NATUREL collection, six (6) NEW, full-coverage creams in deeper hues were born.

Perfect as every day go-to colors, the Zoya NATUREL DEUX (2) collection bridges the transitional gap between late summer/early fall 2014 with three, rich brown family shades and three plum based beauties. All in the long-wearing, BIG5FREE formula Zoya is known for!

I had to put them on as soon as I got the collection in the mail. Here’s my mani.


This is two easy coats of Spencer (light brown) and Marney (plum). The gold pattern is done with Ziv. And don’t ask me what the pattern is supposed to be. I thought that polka dots would be too uptight for this mani, so I just did some random spots. Maybe they look like some animal?

You can find this collection and the gorgeous Ziv on the Zoya website.

Is this a neutral?

I guess it is until I add the sparkle! I got so many compliments on this mani!

The base is two coats of Julep Kennedy and then one coat of the glittery Shoshanna. The glitter has a greenish undertone and it looks great with the holo sparkle! Love!

Julep Tamara & Corrector Pen

I got my July Maven box in the mail yesterday and immediately had to try out one of the polishes. My choice was Tamara. It’s a lovely, bright, lipstick red creme and it applied beautifully. This is two coats (with top coat).
And here’s the fun part. I did the clean up sitting at my couch where I polished my nails! I used another item I received in my Maven box … this Polish Corrector Pen. It’s essentially a polish remover pen and the tip is like a highlighter tip. It was so easy! It helps that I’m pretty neat with my application anyway. My usual method is with a small eyeliner brush and my bottle of remover in another room. I loved being able to clean up without lots of extra equipment (so one pen vs. one bottle of remover and one brush isn’t that much of a difference).

    Sally Hansen Color Foil Cobalt Chrome

    I’m still here! It’s been crazy busy here at the beginning of the summer. I have some downtime this week before another week-long activity.

    Have you seen these? I think chrome might be my second favorite finish after cream.


    This is three coats of Cobalt Chrome without base or top coat. It works best that way. I tried it with some base coat but that just caused dragging and balding.

    I also *gasp* buffed my nails a bit. I know you’re not supposed to and it weakens your nails, but I think they’ll be ok. You can still see some ridges on my nails so I didn’t buff too much.


    There are 10 polishes in this limited edition line. Have you seen these or tried any of them?

    Zoya Tickled Nail Art

    Polish provided for review

    I was reading a post in a nail group on Facebook about nail decals and if people liked them or not. Then someone posted about making their own watermarble decal and I knew I was going to try it!

    I started like a regular watermarble dropping the polish in the water and creating the design. But instead of continuing on with taping my finger and dipping the nail in the design, I just let the polish dry on the top of the water. I used a toothpick to gently lift it off the water then dried it off with a towel. Here’s the video I posted on Instagram

    How fun is this?! I used all the Tickled colors.

    I painted all my nails with Kitridge first since it was the lightest color. Then I just cut little rectangles from the decal I made. I painted one nail with clear polish (not quick dry) and placed the decal on my nail. Don’t mess with it too much because it melts when it touches the clear and you can smear it. (Evidenced by the bloober on the tip of my ring finger nail.)


    I used a small brush dipped in acetone to clean up the extra polish hanging over the nail.

    This makes watermarbling sooooo easy! It’s not nearly as messy and I can easily get 4-5 nails decorated from one decal sheet.


    If you try this, I’d love to see it!

    While you wait…

    While you’re waiting on the Zoya Trade In Promo and the Summer Collections to release, how about some polishy goodness?


    I used Lara for the base mani. It’s a fun, bright pink without being blindingly neon.

    Darcy, Rocky and Josie are on the accent nail and are from last summer’s Stunning collection.

    If you are trying to decide which polishes to get in the Trade In promo, check out my other Zoya posts and see if something catches your eye.
