Hello. Okay so you are 250W warm peach in the rare beauty line. You want to go a shade light in BB's foundation. You should decide between 1.40 (maybe a more drastic lighter but not too much, it is neutral light undertone) and 1.50 (lighter sure, but the warmth wth still be there may you want less of that). You pick which one you think you want to go for. You last one matches 1.50 a little more than what I'd like if I wanted a change. But you know you best. This is a place for you to start.

Is anyone else not receiving the free samples that they are requesting during the checkout process? I have placed 7 orders in the last 5 weeks and NONE came with the free samples even though they were definitely added to my cart (and I can see them listed on my orders).

@Emy10 I started off with polish back in my teens; I'd use it off and on, but it was never a long term habit for me. In my 20's and 30's, I tried acrylics a few times, and I'd keep them up with fill ins for a few months, but my c-curve is really pronounced. More often than not, my natural nails would pull away from under the acrylics as they grew out, and I'd have to get several nails removed and replaced instead of just filled. I got quite tired of both the expense and the continual damage. Whenever I didn't have acrylics, I'd use polish again from time to time, but it still wasn't a constant habit. I tried home gel polish in my 30's, but didn't have much patience with the soak off removal process, and I wound up gouging several nails by peeling the polish off instead of soaking it off like I should have. User error for sure, but gel just isn't my cup of tea. But some time around 40, polish became a true addiction instead of an occasional thing. I paint my nails every 2-3 days now, and enjoy the heck out of the process. I've got some nails that are weaker than others, but I've figured out what works for me, and how to keep them intact as long as possible. If you do decide to say goodbye to acrylics, I have a few tips for nail care 🙂 1. Nails are "jewels, not tools"! Be mindful of what you do with them. I use a knuckle to open the microwave or cabinets now. I pull out the box cutter instead of trying to tear into a package. Use a spoon or something to lift the tab on a soda can. It takes a little vigilance at first, but becomes second nature over time.2. "Bendy" is actually a GOOD thing! Nails should be flexible enough to bend under stress instead of being so hard that they just snap. Many strengtheners are actually making your nails too brittle. They can make sense for some people in some scenarios, but I avoid them altogether, and my nails are so much better without them.3. To help facilitate a healthy version of bendy, cuticle oil is your absolute best friend. My best nails started the moment I gave up the strengtheners and started using cuticle oil daily. You can buy premade or make your own; it doesn't have to be fancy or expensive. A base of jojoba oil is best, as that mimics our own natural sebum, and is the most easily absorbed by the nail plate. Use it as often as you can remember; I have several scattered throughout the house to help me keep it up regularly.4. Avoid water whenever possible. I use gloves for washing dishes and other water-intensive activities. Some folks even shower with them (though I don't go quite that far). Nails are composed of roughly 50 layers of keratin, and as water gets in between the layers, it can stretch them apart, leading to peeling. After washing your hands, apply oil and/or a cream/lotion if at all possible.5. Keep them polished at all times. The layers of base coat, color, and topcoat all help provide a bit of reinforcement, and water resistance as well. 6. Once you take your acrylics off, just keep in mind that it'll take 4-6 months to grow out all of the damage. It's totally worth it though, IMHO 🙂

@RGbrown So, NOW you’re telling me? 🤣 Thank you for your expert input, honestly. As it stands, I’ve decided to go the “boring” neutral route. As much as I use my hands, anything else starts mercilessly showing tip wear after just 1-2 days. And looks like I have better longevity luck with OPI than Essie (or anything else). Now, my toes will keep it on until I’m tired of looking at the color. Guess I don’t use my toes as much... 😉

@itsfi Yesss so glad you reviewed this! I like the idea of the ear loops... I'm not sheet-mask-savvy enough to know that was even a thing, but it makes total sense. I'm always missing my jawline/ear area when I'm cleansing or applying product! (also your nails are so cute!)
