Dakota Vox Lighted Mascara

In addition to being a connoisseur of polish, my makeup collection is definitely not lacking. About a year ago I found myself wanting to try all kinds of new mascara. I'm a darker than Malecifant's soul kind of black. 

I gave this Dakota Vox Lighted Mascara a go. A light, in your eye - yes it sounds a bit intimidating. Honestly, the light (which stays on once clicked) really does illuminate those minuscule lashes without blinding you.  The packaging also includes a mirror on the wand.
Said to be flake free, the silicone brush "coats lashes without clumping." I found this to be the case and it did a decent job of lengthening my lashes. 
Retailing for $12.99, it can be purchased at Beauty9.com.

Do you have a mascara you can't leave home without?

While this isn't my actually Easter manicure, these certainly feel like little Easter eggs. I picked up a few of I Love Nail Polish's new colors and wanted to play with Fame right away. I used two coats for the base.

I used striping tape and added the ombre with a sponge and China Glaze Tart-y for the Party, Lemon Fizz and Dance Baby.
I reversed the effects on the accent nails. Such a gorgeous holographic gold with some microflakes in there. Have you tried any of the new Spring line?
