Milani "Black Magic" collection

I couldn’t wait to swatch these Milani “Black Magic” polishes for you! Diana and I put a hurtin’ on the lone display at a Philly CVS, going for the same colors. Although I admit, I was on the fence about Enchantment and didn’t get it that day. But when I saw it again, I snatched …

Since Borghese lacquers were buy one get one half off at Ulta (sale ends 9/26/09!), I picked up three from their new limited edition fall collection called Tuscan Harvest. It looked like there were six to eight Tuscan Harvest polishes, and most of the colors were represented in the display except a couple. I choose the three I …

A Koala-ty swap!

Oh, I couldn’t resist that title as my boyfriend asked me what kind of Australian quibs I was going to use in my post when I got my first swap package and started swatching my goodies from down under. So babe, that one’s for you! 😉 I was having a horrible day on Friday. Everyone has bad days …

La Strada Rose by Borghese

When I worked at Ulta I dismissed Borghese, because it was tucked away on an end cap in mass cosmetics – not with the other salon polishes like OPI and China Glaze. I admit it! I went through a bit of a polish snob phase (until blogging started opening up my polish-thinking ways once again!). Because of that, I never realized how …

China Glaze's new glitter polishes Part I!

I’m not the hugest fan of glitter polish, because it’s such a pain in the ass (PITA) to take off. BUT. I am a huge fan of glitter polishes because I’m a girl that loves sparkly things…so I continue to buy them and wear them, like the ones I’ve got to show to you today! By now we all …

A day of polish and plants

I mentioned in my post yesterday that I had brunch with Diana from Painted Lady Fingers. I live in Jersey quite close to Philadelphia, where she is, so we met in the city for brunch and a day of plant shopping and, of course, drug store hopping on a random nail polish mission. She was …

We will never forget 9/11

The other day my boyfriend asked me if I was going to do red, white and blue for my KOTD on Friday. I asked him why… and that’s when I realized (I won’t say remembered because it’s something I’ll never forget) that today is the 8-year anniversary of 9/11. I wanted to share with you the first column …
