Morning everyone! I worked on comparison posts this week with unicorn pee polishes – so called because the pigment used to make them is so rare. Today I have one of the newest on the market: ILNP The Magician to go up against a similar polish, Baroness X Sir Cockicorn [previously swatched].
Morning everyone! Another Wednesday is here – yay? LOL! 😛 Today I have two polishes from Pretty & Polished to show you: Her Majesty, Royal Purple and Brisky Business.
Her Majesty, Royal Purple [gift] is a blue-tinged purple polish. Formula was wonderful, it goes on evenly and dries matte. This is 2 coats and no top coat.
Brisky Business is from the Winter 2016 collection [my partial review]. This is a blurple based shimmer polish that shifts from purple to blue with a tinge of red, with color shifting flakes. Formula was a bit thin; it does dry matte. This is 1 coat plus top coat over HMRP. (Please excuse the huge chip in my bottle, Mrs Butterfingers over here.)
Though I was expecting a bit more from Brisky Business, it still is a gorgeous polish – well both of them are, to be honest!
Hey everyone! I realized that I haven’t done a proper showing off of nail polishes I’ve bought lately. Let’s rectify that today! Over the past month and a half (or so), I’ve bought: Bad Bitch Polish, Baroness X, Girly Bits, ILNP, March For the Love of Polish box, Noodles Nail Polish, Pahlish, Painted Polish, Parrot Polish, Tonic Nail Polish, and Vapid Nail Lacquer. I also received as a gift the newest collection from Polish ‘M. Let’s see the pretties!

Morning everyone! I hope you had a fantastic St. Patrick’s Day weekend. 🙂 Today I have a manicure using Zoya Zooey and August, Girly Bits Cosmetics What Happens In Vegas Ends Up on Twitter, and a KBShimmer water slide decal.
I started with Zoya August on my pointer and pinky fingers. August is a cool grey creme polish. Formula is thin and runny. This is 2 coats plus top coat.
On my ring finger, I used Zoya Zooey [gift]. Zooey is a textured peachy pink polish with gold shimmer and iridescent glitter. Formula is good, application was smooth. Shown is 2 coats and no top coat. Continue reading
Bubble Yum is a bright pink polish with gold and pink flakes. My pictures show it so much more dark than it is – it is a bright pink polish!
Formula had a good thickness to it; it does dry satin. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat.
I do like the occasional pink polish and this one has just enough oomph and pizzazz to keep my interest. What do you think of it?
Good morning everyone. Today is a quick post to remind you that it’s the anniversary of my mom’s death and that on social media today I’ll be posting the random acts of kindness my children and I will be performing in her honor. I’ve talked about my mom before (and memories of Almond Roca) and about the RAOK Day if you care to read through these posts. This is last year’s manicure.
I’m finding it harder and harder as the years go by to remember my mom – well certainly not her in a general sense but in a specific sense – the feel of her face, her voice, her laugh, the way she would hug me and tell me to hold my babies tight. So each year as her anniversary comes up, I try even harder to honor her and the lessons she taught me – as a mom, wife, and human being. Each year on this anniversary, my kids and I go throughout our city performing random acts of kindness as a way to honor her. I’m also finally getting a memorial tattoo this year! If you’re able to join us, please do so – take a pic and share it on ig or Facebook with the hashtag #RAOK4Lucy. Continue reading
