29 April 2012


How was everyone's weekend? Mine was okay. I had coffee with a friend and gave her a late birthday present (which consisted of 6 nail polishes and a lip gloss!). Other than that, I had a pretty slow weekend. Anyway, I got Sinful Colors Cinderella a while back. I find it a bit similar to Glass Pink from SC (except it's blue, obviously). I like it, but it's not a favorite. For me, it took three generous coats to get opaque and I was bored with it after I put it on..don't get me wrong it's a pretty color, just maybe not for me. Here it is :

I saw this was recently lumped in with the GIRLS IN PEARLS set of polishes SC put out, which consisted of a couple blues, a couple pinks, a yellow, a coral, a purple, and a teal, all with shimmer. Some of the colors, like Cinderella, are part of their permanent collection, so I bought almost all of the ones that were LE last week when the polishes were on sale for $.99. I will definitely be posted those soon! 

What do you think?

I got this on clearance at Ulta a while back and finally got to wear it...It's an interesting color. It's borderline ugly/pretty in my opinion. If I wore this on my toes, I think definitely I would hate it, but it works on the fingernails! If it wasn't on clearance though, it would probably never have come home with me.

What do you think? Is it a color you'd own/wear?

chunky holo fuchsia.

This was my first ever Kleancolor nail polish, and I love it! This is called Chunky Holo Fuchsia, and it is over Wet n Wild Black Creme. I mostly do my nails at night, so when I first put this on I only saw orange and green...I was really confused as to why it was called FUCHSIA except for that's the color it is in the bottle. Finally the next day I saw tons of colors in it!! Here are a TON of pictures I took because it's just so great. Enjoy :

What do you think? I just recently bought a couple more Chunky Holos so I will be using those very soon (even regular Holos, so look out for those).

nude it.

Hello all, how's the weekend so far? Mine's been going good. Does anyone have plans for Earth Day tomorrow?? I think I will find myself going to Sephora and getting a free moisturizer! 

I bought this at Ulta and I absolutely love it. Like most Essence nail polishes I've tried, it goes on really smooth and creamy. I am really in to nude colors ATM. This is called Nude It!


What do you think? What is your favorite nude?

mini haul.

This is all the stuff I got this week (most on sale!) :

CVS has all their Wet n Wild products on sale 2/$3...ALL of them. I got the other two 8 palette eyeshadows I didn't have, originally $4.99..What a steal!! That's like $7 off. Ahh...Then I also got Silent Treatment, a 3 palette that I've been wanting, and Blue Wants to Be a Millionaire polish (There is a similar one called Hannah Pinktata, but I didn't get it this time) I really wanted to get more, but I had to stop myself!

I didn't get great swatches with this palette because I used the sponge it came with instead of an eyeshadow brush! But from what little I've seen on them on my arm, I think I'll get the most use out of the bottom shade.

This is a really pretty shade, but I think it might need a bottom coat of something, otherwise it's going to take maybe 5 coats just to get it opaque. This is 3 coats here.

Top: Left Browbone, Right Browbone; Left Eyelid, Right Eyelid; Left Crease, Right Crease;
Bottom: Left Definer, Right Definer.
What you might not be able to tell from the picture: the right browbone on the palette is a light blue shade; the right crease on the palette is a dark blue with glitter but it comes out more black; the two definers are black, the left matte, right glitter.

Top: Left Browbone, Right Browbone; Left Crease, Right Crease
Bottom: Left Eyelid, Right Eyelid; Left Definer, Right Definer
Just another picture of them.
What you might not be able to tell from the picture: the left browbone and left eyelid are both matte; the right crease is black with red glitter, similar to the one on the Comfort Zone palette; the right definer is black with blue/purple glitter.
OPI Pirouette My Whistle, China Glaze Matte Magic

I got these for cheaper than I normally do, OPI $7.95 and China Glaze $3.95 (of course this is not a full-sized bottle).

I got these at Michael's. Everything from the brand Recollections is 50% off right now, so I got these both for $3.49 each.

All in all I think I did pretty damn good this week so far!! Have a great rest of the week.

neptune in the ocean.

I've seen a lot of caviar nails recently (or fish egg as some people are choosing to call them) and I thought they're kinda fun! I went to Michael's and got some micro beads that were on clearance for only $3.50 and got six colors. Martha Stewart has a set of 12, but her stuff is too expensive for me. Here's what I ended up with (Sinful Colors Neptune, Recollections Micro Beads in Ocean) :

Neptune is such a pretty color. I don't have a lot of blue polishes, so I'd say this was a great buy. Like most Sinful Colors it goes on pretty good, only needing a couple coats! If you haven't tried this awesome trend yet, I'm sure there are a ton of videos on YouTube showing how to do it, it is SUPER easy. 

And because I like seeing a lot of pictures on people's blogs of their nails, here are a lot of mine :) :

Hope you like! Have you tried this yet??

get real-ism & coral amber.

Today I have two different colors. There was no sun today, just tons of rain, but I did the best I could with the pictures!

A while ago I took advantage of Sally's Beauty Supply's $10 off $20 coupon and bought a lot of Finger Paints. I really like the variety this line has, and they are really great polishes for not that much money . This one is Finger Paints Get Real-ism. It's such a pretty purple with hints of pink. Two coats was really good, but I always do three just in case.

I was going through my mom's five nail polishes she owns and found an old SH Nail Prisms! I used to work at Walgreens in the beauty department, and because I was good with sales, I got to go to a meeting that had Samy (the hair care products guy), a representative from Sally Hansen, and a representative from Isa Dora Cosmetics (this was in 2006/7, because Walgreens..or anyone really in the US I don't think...doesn't sell Isa Dora anymore). Everyone there got a TON of free hair products, nail polish, and makeup. I was one happy girl!! Anyway, I forgot I gave this to her so I took it back (she obviously never used it!), and painted her nails with it. Again, sadly there was NO sun today, but you can still see the potential it has to be awesome in sunlight. Here's Coral Amber :

So pretty! I had this on my toes a while ago when I first found it and didn't see what the big deal was with the Nail Prisms...and then I went outside and the sun glimmered on my pretty! My mom keeps looking at her nails (she doesn't paint them often) and saying she has a champagne party going on on her nails...haha oh mom..

I'm off to put my headphones on and blast some music. My dad is blasting Spoon's "The Underdog" with his headphones and singing loudly to it..have you heard that song? It's a good one..just not when my dad sings it :) Have a great week!
