Happy Mani Monday! This year I’ll be recapping each week’s mani here on the blog with a roundup on the last Monday of every month… That’s the plan, anyway. First up, my five manicures from January.  Each of these manicures starts with OPI Nail Envy base coat and is topped with HK Glisten & Glow top coat.

Smashbox – Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick

These products were provided by Smashbox for review. As always, all opinions are my own.

Let’s start by saying I’m usually a Chapstick & lip gloss kind of girl but that didn’t hinder my excitement when this gorgeous package from Smashbox filled with nineteen shades of the new Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick arrived on my doorstep. That excitement led to my first attempt at arm swatches which was hilarious.  I should have taken a picture of my right hand at the end of this, because it was COVERED in liquid lipstick. Beginners luck?

Anyway…Look. at. all. of. those. colors. Plus, there’s a fun collaboration shade from Lilly Singh called “Bawse” – a gorgeous, deep red.  So freakin’ pretty.
