Polishing Off the Week : The Neutrals

I have an obsession with nails. Nail polish, manicures, acrylics, whatever it is, I’m hype when it comes to nails. My nail polish obsession is truly tragic because I tend to impulse buy nail polish colors I don’t need. Despite my tragic, expensive obsession with painting my nails, I’ve decided to recommend my favorite polishes of the week. Recently, I’ve been wearing a lot more neutral polishes instead of pastel polishes. Look below for my five picks!

Essie Mochachino

This is a cool gray polish with a slight shimmer. It goes perfectly with my skin tone and I tend to dislike gray polishes.

Buy it on Amazon for $8.50.

Essie Little Brown Dress

This is a very, very dark brown polish that almost looks black. The color is reminiscent of black coffee. I highly recommend this for all my black girls reading this.

Buy it on Beyond Polish for $4.75.

OPI Barefoot in Barcelona

Barefoot in Barcelona is a pinky brown color and it’s my favorite neutral of the five.

Buy it on Amazon for $7.20.

OPI Bubble Bath

Bubble Bath is a classic neutral/nude for all skin toes. It is a very light pink but gives a subtle hint of color.

Buy it on Amazon for $6.73.

Essie Chinchilly

This polish is a gray and beige color and the color looks exactly as it does in the bottle.

Buy it on Amazon for $8.50.

COSRX AHA 7 Whitehead Power Liquid Review

After 20 years I have returned to this struggle blog with a review of COSRX’s Aha 7 Power Liquid. See my struggle review down below.

Packaging

This comes in a 100 ml clear bottle with a pump.

Price

I bought this for $12.90 USD on Wishtrend.

Ingredients

Pyrus Malus(Apple) Fruit Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycolic Acid, Water, Niacinamide, Sodium Hydroxide, 1,2 – Hexanediol, Panthenol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Ethyl Hexanediol

Review

I’m going to start this review off by saying that this stuff smells like straight up shit. It smells like oven baked ass and rotten eggs. Not a pleasant way to start off this review, I know. Just like the BHA liquid, it is a bit thicker than water and it is easy to spread around. It also dries very fast which allows me to move to the next step of my routine. This product claims to reduce sebum and whiteheads, and brighten the skin. I didn’t notice any reduction of sebum, which isn’t really surprising due to the fact that my forehead looks like chicken grease within five minutes. The amount of whiteheads reduced a bit, but I still got the occasional cystic pimple. I was happy that my hyperpigmentation seemed to fade a bit after about two weeks of using this.

Conclusion

COSRX Aha 7 Whitehead Power Liquid isn’t a holy grail for me, but it isn’t necessarily horrible either.Honestly, using this wasn’t really worth it and the fact that it smells like ass makes my purchase less than satisfactory. I find this to be an okay product, and I will be looking for other AHAs to use once this one runs out. This product will be receiving a 3.5/5 stars.
