Thoughts on Bag: I adore my nail polish. I adore it so much i've been looking for the other 3 shades but can't seem to find the collection anwhere. :( My lipstick is in a shade i get periodically in my ipsy bags, so it will probably just be put in my purse when i need some color added to my lips when im out somewhere. I love the colors of the eye shadow palette, but yet to see how they will work with my fair skintone. They look like the perfect shade for like an arabian eye look. Makes me think of Aladdin. I tried the body butter and it wasn't very moisturizing. I also didn't care for the scent. This bag was a toss up for me. The definite stand out product was the nail polish. :)

These were the other products featured in this month's bag.

I almost didn't buy this because my hubby was giving me crap about spending $7. I'm so glad i didn't listen!! This color is so pretty and sparkly. Its a bright blue with rainbow sparklies. My one complaint though about this polish is the new supposedly perfect stroke brush. I wish someone could show me how to give a perfect stroke?? The brush makes it pick up too much product. Make sure you have a qtip and polish remover on hand because you are going to need it for cleaning up the sides of your nails.

This dries super quick too!!

I think this will probably be my favorite polish of 2011 if not in my top 3 :D i dont even like justin bieber lol i thought the polish was pretty, only reason i got it. :)
