Drugstore buys! 
This week, I visited my neighborhood drugstore and found 3 new items that had to come home with me.
1. Wet N Wild Fast Dry nail polish in Gray’s Anatomy. The color is more sheer than I thought it would be from the bottle- even with 2 coats. It’s an iridescent purple that looks neon in some lights and black pearl in others. This would look best with short, squared nails and a shiny top coat. The coats did dry fast so it does what it says it does. 
2. Dove Style + Care nourishing dry ends serum. No more static dry hair in winter! This serum has that Dove scent that I love- clean and subtle. It is lightweight, which I need for my fine/ dry hair and moisturizing. My ends immediately looked hydrated, not heavy. 
3. Burts Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter. You can feel the avocado oil, shea butter, and cocoa butter coating your lips from the first swipe. The finish is glossy, without the sticky/gooey texture that comes with lip gloss. My lips have been hydrated all day with this balm— I find it really lasts and doesn’t need frequent reapplication. Perfect under lipstick!
