Graze Snack Subscription Review (not nail related)

No, this is not nail art. Yes,this is awesome! I was led to snacks by beautybykrystal
When I signed up,from her invite code,I received 2 boxes free! They haven't launched to the public yet. Unless you have an invite code. I was given a invite code to share. It may not work after being used many times. M3KQ6NHD .
These can be a weekly subscription or monthly.The process of picking what I would like and not, was so fun!
My first snack box was very good.The box is simple.Everything is recyclable.And each box arrives with nutrition facts. It even has a napkin under the snacks.

The First one I tried was Super Berry Detox.
Blueberries,cranberries,goji berries and green raisins.
I found these refreshing and a nice sweet snack. For someone with a sweet tooth,this is a great sugary snack substitute. I have never had a goji berry. Alone its OK. But the combo is better.
Then came Honeycomb Flapjacks
Rustic rolled oats flapjacks with honey and milk chocolate.
My sweet tooth was fully satisfied. A perfect combination of chewy and texture. These left me wanting more! 

Next is Nacho Libre
Salsa Almonds,cheesy sombreros and jumbo chilli corn.
If you love spice and crunch, these are up your alley. My guy loved them.

Lightly Toasted Pistachios was the last snack tried.
Whole pistachios toasted with little salt.
These were very nice. I do wish they was added spices.

I am very excited for my next box! I would recommend these to anyone who loves healthy snacking.

Pop Beauty Nail Glam kit from Costco Swatches

My girl friend was at Costco last week. Like the awesome friend she is, she sent me a picture of these with the price of $10.00! I said "yes please"!
These usually run around $10.00 each full size. These are not full size BUT are not minis either.
They are .4fl oz

These are limited edition 5 piece nail polish kits. Both kits have no name to the kit. Just different colored packaging and nail colors.

When applying these polishes I favored the blue kit. I only needed 2 coats of polish.. 
Unlike the blue kit,the pink kit polishes needed 3 sometimes 4 coats.With the exception of Golden Shimmer 

First swatches are from the pink kit.

Italian Ice

Pink Wink

Molten Kisses

Mulberry Magic

Golden Shimmer

The blue polish kit.


After Hours
(my favorite)

Purple Haze

New "Wet n Wild" Toppings Nail Polish Review and Swatch

I have many things to say about this (limited edition) Wet n Wild collection.So, lets just jump in to it!
I almost past this display by in Walgreens. I only spotted it because my other item needed was right next to it. At first glance I thought the collection was of only 4 different polishes. But after reading the display panel I was shocked that it said there were 6 all together!
It took me a good while to actually sort out which is which. They are so similar. But for purposes of this review I purchased all 6.
These are made to used as a top coat. So keep that in mind when applying. They are lovely on there own as well.
I don't think its necessary to purchase all of them. Pick a couple that are not to close in color. I actually really like these toppers. 

Every color is nice.
The longer wand is easy to use
Decent price
Very easy to apply
Good formula

Most are similar
It would seem they used the same glitter combo in each polish. A rainbow combo.
Once the tag is taken off,so is the polish name!

Now,when I began to swatch these,the first one I swatched was Gimme Some Suga. Look what I found when I opened it! A defective brush. Super short. It seemed to work OK. I think if this was an opaque polish it would definitely not be OK. 

All swatches are 2 coats of polish.

Gimme Some Suga
A golden shimmer.

Frosted Over
I think I would like this more without the large glitter.

Sprinkled With Love
Similar to Frosted Over

Icing Backup
Pink Shimmer

Chip on Your Shoulder

Confections of a Bake-aholic
This is my favorite out of the collection.

Have you purchased these? What do you think?
