Sephora by OPI Dating the Drummer

Hi everyone! How’s your Sunday going? I got eliminated from my work football elimination pool today, that’s a bummer! I picked Indianapolis Colts this week…and they lost. Oh well.

Operation Vacation: A success of relaxation!

Hellllllo everyone! I’m back!

LJL: a Flea Market Polish Find

Again today I have a flea market post! I found a brand that cost $1 a bottle that didn’t smell horrific like those odd polishes I shared last week! I Googled LJL and didn’t come up with much. I checked the bottle and saw “Jehahn Corp” on the label, so I Googled that. And found the …

Rimmel Zeitgeist – Happy Fall!

Happy first day of Fall, ya’all! I thought I’d celebrate with a very autumnal color that I found when I went into my local Kmart looking for knee high stockings – of all things! – and I passed by a big cart full of clearanced cosmetics. Of course I had to stop! And I’m glad I did! …

Random Avon Picks!

I’ve been impressed with Avon’s selection of color in its Nailwear Pro line lately, and when I placed a recent order I also picked up a couple different types of the polish, just to check it out. I picked up two Mirror Shine polishes and two Color Trend Ice Sheers. I believe a long time ago, I …

Flea Market Finds a Stinky Experience

Over the summer I found some interesting polishes at a couple of my favorite flea markets. The ones I’m sharing today are odd. They smell funky and look funny! While swatching this, I wondered if I was risking my lung health. The smell was stronger than paint you’d put on your walls! I have no …
