Purple and Neon Glitter Manicure

purple-festival-glitter-002

It’s another one of those days where I want a super bright non-work-friendly manicure. I picked up a bottle of Claire’s Festival Love, which is a matte glitter combo of hot pink, neon green, and yellow hexes and bright blue mini hexes. It’s a great combo! I wanted to pair it with something bright but […]

July-August 2014 Empties: nail polish, skin care, hair oils

july-august-2014-empties-001

I had fun in June when I first posted an empties post, so I figured I’d save up my trash and do it again when I had a decent amount of items. The plus side of the empties posts for me is that it motivates me to finish products and samples instead of buying new […]

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri White Pick It Fence

july-august-2014-haul-004

As I mentioned in Monday’s haul post, Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri line is back with another white polish. If you’ve been here for a bit, you might already know that Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White is my favourite white nail polish of all time. That might seem weird, but having a good white polish in your […]

July – August 2014 Nail Polish Haul

july-august-2014-haul-001

It’s that time again! I bought another nail rack for my wall, so I have to start filling it. Well, filling it slowly. I’m officially out of room. I wasn’t going to get another nail rack. I even went through and got rid of a bunch of polish. But alas, all those Nail Gears have […]

tardis-galaxy-001

The ol’ ball ‘n chain and I are big Doctor Who fans, so of course we were excited this past weekend with the premiere of the Twelfth Doctor. Even more exciting– one of the theaters here played the episode (plus some extras) on Monday. When we saw the 50th Anniversary Special in theatres, we dressed […]

Lancome Grandiose Mascara Review

lancome-grandiose-001

I know I cover nail art and nail polish 99% of the time, but it’s one of those 1% times right now. I thought I’d give you guys a little review on a new mascara– Lancome Grandiose. Lancome Grandiose promises “fanned-out lashes, divine curves”. Mascaras always promise a lot of things. Mascara ads always feature […]

Bright Purple Nails with Blue and White Glitter Splatter

purple-blue-white-glitter-002

I was in the mood for some bright nails the other day, so I decided I’d try China Glaze Are You Jelly? since I picked it up last month and had yet to use it. I should have known by the name that it was, well, a jelly polish, and therefore very thin. This is […]
