L.A. Colors Nail Polish and Lip Gloss

L.A. Colors is an elusive brand to me. I’ve seen it on other blogs but I didn’t see it anywhere I have gone. I went to a Big Lots in search of finds a few weeks ago (I actually had hoped that there would be Diamond Cosmetic nail products, I needed more LavendeRx…but there was …

Thursday Poll 9/24/09

Here it is, Thursday! I’m still in San Francisco and a busy worker bee! 🙂 Thinking of traveling and the colorful cities I’ve visited, San Fran is one of my favorites! And speaking of colorful, this all leads me to ask you a totally polish-related question!: If you could pick a nail polish color that reminds you of your …

Sally Hansen Old School!

This past weekend there was an awesome concert that I wish I’d been able to go to. Salt N Pepa, Rob Base, and a whole host of other 90s hip hop musicians. Factoid about me: I *heart* 90s hip hop. Songs like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xy4FXhkm6Nw. Oh yes, and I once won a karaoke contest singing “The Humpty …

Official word on those China Glaze glitters!

I got an email from my contact at China Glaze that shares with us what’s going on with these gorgeous polishes. I am doing this before work and have to rush to get ready but I wanted to share this with you! From ChG: They are not sure yet if the Speciality Colors are going …

Comparison: 1 MAC vs. Sephora by OPI and 1 MAC vs. RBL

The MAC Nail Trend Collection by Jin Soon has some great colors in it, but I felt like I’d already seen a couple of them in other collections. Of course, the colors I felt I’d already seen were the colors I liked, so I ended up getting them, but I couldn’t help but compare – MAC Dry …

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 …

Tuscan Harvest – Borghese Fall 2009

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 …

Thursday Poll 9/17/09 and Konad Kontest KOTDs

As the week winds down, I am falling more behind on blog reading. ack! I’ve only been reading a couple here and there before work and in the evening and each night I’ve been doing a post here and there but I’ve been spending time with my boyfriend before I go away. Seven days is a long time …
