China Glaze For Audrey + First Mate + OPI Stars in My Eyes ; and polishes I've gotten this week

China Glaze in First Mate, For Audrey, and OPI in Stars in My Eyes

China Glaze For Audrey was one of my first purchases from CG (I bought it during a B2G1 Free sale at ULTA). I absolutely love Audrey Hepburn, and Breakfast at Tiffany's is one of my favorite movies EVER, so I thought I'd get this (It was really out of my hands :) ). This is my first time using it, and I love it. It is so creamy, smooth, and was good to go after one coat.

As much as I love it, I wanted to add a little something, and a couple weeks ago when I had on Sinful Colors Winterberry I did a similar design with OPI Shatter in Gold  and loved it. Here's the version I did this week with First Mate and OPI Stars in My Eyes as the silver line :

They're simple, but I think they're great! The girl at the MAC counter today even said she liked them.

On a side note, I bought only a few polishes this week, but I'm excited about all of them! :

Sally Hansen HD DVD, Wet n Wild MegaLast I Red a Good Book,  Sinful Colors  Glass Pink, Jordana  Red of Hearts
I went to Rite-Aid today to take advantage of their BOGO Free EcoTools sale, but they didn't have a great selection, so when I saw this baby was 75%, I was made happier yet again! I saw this swatched the other day and loved it. This is the first of this kind of polish I've ever had.

This is just a really great red..I bet it'll be a true red polish, and I don't really have one of those. They're usually more bright than not.

I've been wanting Nicole by OPI's Kim-pletely in Love , but haven't been able to find it, so when I saw this I was happy. It probably won't be just like it, but pretty darn close.

Lastly, my mom surprised me with this after she went grocery shopping (I love surprises like this, don't you?). 

I am thinking about using all three of these for Valentine's Day this year, but I haven't really decided how yet. Can't wait! 

Lastly, I got some extra cash this week from tips when I was bartending at the mixer at the Art Museum this weekend, so I thought I'd finally buy an expensive-to-me foundation. I have never used MAC face makeup (limiting myself to the less expensive stuff like eyeshadows and lip colors), but I have seen a lot of people say good things about this foundation. 

I have never been so excited to wake up and put on makeup! Has anyone else used this MAC foundation? Or any other one from MAC? Let me know your opinion!


  1. I use Studio Sculpt SPF, it's great. Also, please check your email...

    1. I'll have to check that out next time I need foundation. I didn't see anything from you in my email, when did you send it?
