Thursday poll 7/30 and OMG – Enchanted Forest and Dark Room!

So here we are, another Thursday! I will get to the poll but I had to share my exciting swatches: Is Enchanted Forest not one of the smoothest creme polishes you’ve ever seen!? Ok, maybe I am a bit carried away hehehehe. I am not sure if I’m gaga for this because of all the buzz, …

Once Upon a Time with Orly

It’s totally awesome that my first foray into Orly nail polish is its upcoming Once Upon a Time fall 2009 collection. At first look, I loved every color in this collection, from juicy Poison Apple orange-red to milk chocolate Prince Charming. It is one of the rare times I have ever looked at a nail polish collection and …

Drugstore Finds: Rite Aid

Since my 5 & 10 finds and adventure  in Jim Thorpe, PA the weekend before last, I’ve been thinking a lot about the experience of buying makeup at the drug store. Not everyone wants to spend a lot of dough on things like nail polish, eye shadow or lip gloss. Hello! We’re in a recession! …

A night of girlish manis and … manly pedi’s?!

I told one of my BFs I’d paint her little girls’ nails for them the day before the eldest’s birthday party. So Friday I brought over about seven or eight bottles of my most girly nail polishes, my nail art lacquers, dotting tool, cuticle cream, OPI Top Coat and a few other tools and went …

The makeup gift that keeps on giving

Women who love makeup have got to be the easiest people to buy presents for. It didn’t surprise me that for Christmas, my mom gave me this awesome multiple piece bareMinerals set that came in a keepsake box. It had a little bit of everything – brushes, Mineral Veil, eye colors, liner, blush and lip …

I love a good pedicure, but I don’t go very often. I do my own crafty things with nail art and I have a ton of nail polish to work with. I am also extremely ticklish on the bottom of my feet! 🙂 Once a year, I splurge and get my feet done. This week …

Too Faced Fall: Metal-Eyed and Living in Sin

I went to pick up some nail polish remover from Ulta but of course, I can’t go into a makeup store and not look at the makeup! I found a whole array of new Too Faced products. I’m not sure if they’re fall or late summer or just new products, especially since the only thing …

Swatches: China Glaze Retro Diva preview

With its Retro Diva collection, China Glaze is putting a twist on its tagline – from “Live in Colour” to “Relive in Colour.” Although I’ve heard that it seems to be a 70s-themed collection, it took me back to the 80s as well (you’ll see what I mean!). Some of the names – like Cruisin’ and Free Love – …

5 & 10 Finds

This past weekend, my boyfriend and I drove out to Jim Thorpe, PA, to celebrate our two-year dating anniversary with a weekend getaway in the mountains. The trip was amazing and rejuvenating. I learned a lot about a little town, dipped my hand into the cold, rushing water of the Lehigh River, climbed into an …

If you like it, others might too!

I thought it might be nice to include some of what you said were your favorite nail polishes, and link them to a site where you can see them and possibly buy them if you fall in love with them, too 🙂 Daniele said that Essie Sugar Daddy is her “go-to color.” I can see …
