OPI All Your Dreams in Vending Machines, 3 coats
Formula was a bit thin but otherwise it applied nicely.
Morning everyone! I’ll be honest, I can’t even remember where I picked this nail polish up from. It was either Sally Beauty Supply or Walmart. It just intrigued me in the store and I had to buy it!
Isn’t it just pretty? I love when OPI does polishes like this because it reminds me of all the really oldie-but-goodie polishes* from way back when.
*black label smell not included
1 coat of OPI Natural Nails Base Coat
3 thin coats of Necessary Evil Polish Norepinephrine,
1 coat plus dabbing of L.A. Colors Mermaid Magic Shimmer Mist
1 coat of Dreamland Lacquer Ooh Shiny!
This is a manicure I created while I was on my staycation last month, and of course I have almost no recollection of it! 😛
Norepinephrine is a thermal polish but I wasn’t able to capture it very well. I’m going to point you to Jenalyn’s swatches which made me buy the darn thing in the first place!

I’m so ready for spring and summer, I’ve started buying tank tops and wearing open-toed shoes! I knew today was going to be super nice so I layered a black tank top under this new crocheted skull top I picked up from Hot Topic with a “new to me” (picked up at a thrift store) khaki jacket. Also I apparently don’t know what to do with my hands when I pose ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
At any rate, I think doing my makeup yesterday did end up helping me because I woke up feeling so much better this morning. I slept like a rock too, so I’m sure that also helped. This was another eyeshadow palette that I picked up from TJ Maxx and I freaking love it! I really did buy it for Gilded, Lava, and Midnight Sapphire but the other colors are quite lovely as well.

(top to bottom) Diamond Dust, Haze, Red Rock, Lava

Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Yellow Pastel, 2 coats
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Coral Pastel, 2 coats
Hot Topic Blackheart Beauty Mint Pastel, 2 coats
All of these pretty much had the same formula, not too streaky but not the best either. YMMV.
Do you ever type or write a word so much that it looks like you’re spelling it wrong even though you know you’re not? Yeah, that’s how I feel with the word “pastel” right now. 😀 At any rate, I picked these three up from my local Hot Topic a few months ago and I finally got around to swatching them! You might remember the Mint Pastel from my polka dots and roses nail art last month.
Yellow Pastel, 2 coats
Coral Pastel, 2 coats
Mint Pastel, 2 coats
You may think this looks similar to Sinful Colors State-mint from a few days ago, but this is definitely green, and not a Tiffany minty color like State-mint.
Can you tell I’m ready for spring?! Seriously, more snow this weekend too. I looked on my Facebook memories from 4 years ago, and my kids were wearing shorts and light windbreaker jackets. I’m jealous of past me. Oh wait…I was pregnant 4 years ago. Nope, I’ll take snow over being pregnant. 😛

Continuing on our journey of new Sinful Colors nail polishes, I had picked up 3 of the Sinful Mattes at first and swatched them on my staycation. Then afterwards, looking for other polishes, I just decided I had to get 3 more. 😀 Continue reading

Nuance by Salma Hayek Dark Earth
These two polishes were gifts to me from Vicki (among others!) and I’m so grateful for them! I’ve never tried this polish line out but I know I’m going to be looking to buy some now.
Desert Sand, 3 coats. Unfortunately, this was super sheer, even at 3 coats. It’s surprising to see some holo from a more mainstream brand, I just wish it had a bit more punch.
Dark Earth, 2 coats. The formula on this was a bit thin, but it covered well in 2 coats.
Oh my gosh, the Sinful Colors Naughty Nudes collection…I gotta tell you, I’d be really bummed about Sinful Colors lately because they’ve just become so.damn.hard. to find! And then, they started popping up at Walmart. Thank the polish gods! At any rate, I have two separate posts on this collection because I took hella ton photos. Today, you get bottle photos and in a couple of days you get swatches and review. Ready? All photos were taken in diffused natural light, natural light, and sunshine.
