NEW SUMMER NAIL POLISH SHADES: NO SHADE, DON’T KILL MY VIBE, PLAYING INNOCENT
No Shade is an ultra-bright hue of seafoam green. It is the perfect shade for all skin tones yet not for the faint of the heart. This gorgeous eye-catching shade is for those that enjoy the perfect pop of color.
Don’t Kill My Vibe is a magnificent deep melon pink hue with a subtle red undertone and a very smooth and opaque application.
Playing Innocent is a creamy opaque pastel yellow shade that is both elegant and stylish. It is a strong contender for the office-friendly nude category.
All shades are available for $12 at www.gingerandliz.com.
Let me start by saying how much I love each and every one of these colors! Each are easy to apply and easy to wear not to mention that they really do last a while without chips (At least 5-7 days)! I even tried out Don’t Kill My Vibe on a girlfriend and she loved it too! She texted me a few days after I gave her a mini manicure with a photo saying look how great my nails look! Super excited about her experience and mine as well, made it really easy to write about this fabulous brand!
Here’s a closer look at the 3 new shades from Ginger + Liz & my thoughts on each color.
Shown with 2 coats this is a great summer shade! Not only will you get unlimited complements, but it’s one of those colors you won’t get sick of wearing! Streak-Free and Vegan Friendly! I give it an A++!
Another fabulous neon, melon pink. My picture just doesn’t do it justice! Not to sound redundant but Don’t Kill My Vibe is another fabulous summer shade. I actually wore this for 2 weeks on my toes and loved it! Shown below with 2 coats, Flawless Finish and NO Streaks easy to apply nail polish must-have for summer!
Lastly is Playing Innocent A super fun, bright and creamy lemon yellow. Another super easy to apply shade, that’s streak free after the first coat. Shown below with 2 coats.
So all and all… the 3 new shades from Ginger + Liz hit a home run in my book! It’s hard to find a fabulous bright, neon nail polish that lasts and Ginger + Liz has hit it dead on. Delivering 3 fantastic shades, perfect for all skin tones and ages! If you haven’t tried it yet I highly recommend buying at least two shades if not all three for the summer. Mix and match them… they all work fantastically together!!
PS.. I found great success with using CND Vinyl Weekly Top Coat for a shiny, long lasting top coat.
Next up is Pout Polish Sugar Lip Scrub brand new from Ginger + Liz. Touted to help condition and prevent chapped lips. This fact I’m not 100% sold on but I must say that it’s a yummy and fun product to use & will leave your lips temporarily feeling soft and buttery smooth, not to mention they taste phenomenal!
My favorite flavor out of the two is Chocolate Strawberry. Probably ’cause i’m a huge Chocolate lover! Both sugar scrubs have an amazing sweet smell. The Chai Tea flavor smells exactly like chai tea from Starbucks! A bit too gingery for my taste, but if you like the flavor of Chai Tea then this one is right up your ally!
The directions say to apply a small amount to your lips and gently rub to wipe away the sugar for softer, smoother lips.
I actually found after applying, that lightly rubbing your lips together and then gently patting away the sugar from your lips with your finger rather than a moist towel or tissue will keep the buttery, moisture feel on your lips.
I even licked some of the sugar off… eeekkk! Yes.. i admitted that! haha.. but it’s okay ’cause Ginger + Liz Sugar Lip Scrubs are made with all natural ingredients, so KUDOS to that!
POUT POLISH SUGAR LIP SCRUB: This summer, Ginger + Liz is expanding beyond nail care with the introduction of POUT POLISH: an all-natural sugar scrub that conditions and prevents chapped lips. The polish makes your lips softer and smoother, ensuring your lip color lasts longer. The scrub comes in both Chai Tea and Chocolate Strawberry flavors. Available for $16.00 at www.gingerandliz.com.
Sugar, Palm Oil, Organic Flavor
I must say, I am so happy that I was able to try out these Ginger + Liz products ’cause they’re now on my radar and can’t wait to see what they launch next!
