Swatch and Review: SinfulColors Get it On and Strapped

Happy Hump Day, all!

Today, I have two shades from SinfulColors' new Leather Luxe collection for the fall, which is exclusively available at Walgreens!

First up is Get it On, a tomato red matte polish. The above is with two coats.

Now, for those of you who have been following me for a while, you'll know I'm not a huge fan of the matte trend. I'm really picky about the shades that I like.

However, this was a stunner as soon as I put it on. It's highly pigmented, but its matte finish has a frosty feel to it that makes it wintry and I'm obsessed.

Even Queen Polish (aka: my mother) was in love!

The second shade is Strapped, a seafoam green. The above is with three coats.

I really liked Strapped a lot, as well. It has a delicateness to it that reminds me of the waters of the Caribbean. It has the same frosty finish as Get It On and I adored it.

I've heard from others that this is a stainer, but I used my regular base coat and didn't have a problem at all.

Overall, these two polishes were awesome! Get It On is my clear favorite, but Strapped was really pretty too. I foresee doing some Christmas nail art with these two! They'd look so nice with some silver on them, too!

The Leather Luxe collection is currently available at Walgreens for $2.99.

Clearly, I love these two. What do you think?

Subscription Sunday: October 2013 Bark Box

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been slow to post lately... law school and an internship are taking over most of my time. But I'm really trying to swatch as much as possible!

Today, I have for you the October Barkbox, which both of my girls are obsessed with! One of the cool things about Barkbox is that not only do they make boxes for dogs, but they also make them for cats!

Right now, there is also a $10 off your first box coupon. So you can click here and enter the code: ROIGBBX1 to receive your box for just $19! A donation will also be made to Romp Rescue, so it's a big win all around!

First up in the Barkbox is the bumi ZogoFlex!

This is the large sized ZogoFlex, which retails for $13.25. The girls LOVED this because it gives them a great solo toy and also an awesome tug toy.

See what I mean?

Plus, if I step on it, I don't start screaming. So that's a bonus haha.

Next up is the Fetch&Glow, a glow in the dark ball, which retails for $10.49.

It's soft, but durable and as you can see on the package, it also floats. The only downside is that in order to glow, it has to be exposed to sunlight for a few hours. But since it mainly stays inside the house for my dogs, that's not really an issue for me.

Here is the first of two treats in this month's BarkBox, the Autumn Harvest treats from Baker's Best. These treats retail for $8.

The main protein in these are goal liver, which is a strong alternative for dogs with allergies. They're also gluten free.

At press time, these were gone. So, that should speak for itself!

Here are the Fruitables Halloween Dog Treats, which retail for $6.

These totally reminded me of the little pretzel packages my mom always bought around Halloween. I had intended on handing these out to any dogs that came by for Trick or Treaters, but they didn't last that long.

Instead, I kept these in the top drawer of my polish Melmer to bribe Brynn out from underneath my bed when I'm ready to go to bed. They ran out last night and we were both very sad.

Here is a Crunchy Rabbit Chew from Etta Says, which retails for $2.50.

I've been saving the Duck Chew from April's box for a while for a day I need to keep Dakota occupied. But now, I have two so I can keep both Dakota AND Brynn occupied.

Dakota was very interested...

Overall, this was an AWESOME Barkbox. We got over $40 worth of fun stuff in here and the Fetch&Glow and ZogoFlex will last us a long time. I'd highly recommend any of these products!

Remember, there is a $10 off your first box coupon. So you can click here and enter the code: ROIGBBX1 to receive your box for just $19! A donation will also be made to Romp Rescue, too.

And a final bonus shot of the girls with their ZogoFlex!
