Borough Babe “Fish Scales”
A polish I drooled over from afar for at least 6 months. I never dove in and tried it because I felt like it was one of those polishes that would be heavily disappointing and all I had to go off of was the bottle. I wont lie; the low amount of sales also made me think “there must be some reason people aren’t buying”. Which is 100% against my usual way of thinking and personal philosophies but nevertheless it was what it was and I stalked it from afar…
Well I finally broke down and decided I needed to try it.
Find out if this is a hidden jewel in the ocean after the jump!!!
Today I am super, super excited to present some Serum No5
I have a huge, crippling soft spot for Indie lacquer. So much so that I started to get a little… used to and a little.. tired of glitter bombs 24/7. Shocking, I know.
Only to then receive a box full of goodies and I was truly. blown. away.
You have to see these after the jump!!
Over the weekend spotted the entire China Glaze “Glitz Bitz ‘n Pieces” collection on clearance at Sally’s – $2.69/bottle!
$2 .69/Bottle – not bad!
An emerald green hex glitter in small, medium and larger size accompanied by black bars and black hex glitter in small, medium and larger sizes.
‘Scattered & Tattered”
A rosey pink hex glitter in small, medium and larger size accompanied by black bars and black hex glitter in small, medium and larger sizes.
An older collection from January/February 2013 so not new news however a bit of a rundown on performance -
Chunky. Not terribly so, but the positive of that means good coverage. Mainstream lacquer companies seem to have such a hard time getting their glitter to give good! While I love this collection, I do also wonder why mainstream lacquer companies feel the urge to put bar glitter in 3/4 of their “unusual” glitter polishes. Curious..
While Sallys are typically independent and their variety, let alone clearance, varies it’s a good reminder to check it whenever you stop by!

There were about a million ladies who frequented a wonderland known as “Pinterest”; where everything is made out of home depot palettes and all the frequencies of the nail polish rainbow can be yours if only you have the eyeshadow for mixing. But not the expensive eyeshadow.. that’s not for delicate ears. So eyeshadow of the likes of Urban Decay and Mac were cast aside, never to be seen as nail polish for all the days of their lives.
..until you drop them for the 1,000th time and just by chance this time they break into a million pieces.
This post is dedicated to all of you who have ever wondered what Urban Decay’s “Midnight Cowboy” looks like as a lacquer – and for the saleswoman in Sephora when I purchased my very first Urban Decay eyeshadow telling me this color could be used literally anywhere. You creative lady, you.
