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.
Peep your eyes ahead!
Macaroons? Light Candy Colors that include a mint-esque/seafoam shade? Chemical inhalation? Count me in!
From the Revlon Scented Treats Collection, today I present to you
See if you can smell them through your monitor, after the jump!!
Serum No. 5′s recent debut introduced us to a DontStopCantQuitIt glow in the dark lacquer called “Day Glow”, which by judging how quickly it has sold out I believe it to be several of your guys’ party spirit animal, plus pink mermaid dreams in “Spring Into Love”, and even a mint that is in fact To Be.
Prepare yourselves because today I’m bringing in the NUDITY! (minus “ity”)
Gold glitter, warm fleshy nude, iridescence and more..
Now let me take you further into the potion cabinet to present you this Serum…
See if you are keen on this one after the jump!!
You may or may not have noticed but I’ve resumed working on the webpage which includes setting up a lot of original plans such as “Indie Thursday”
To kick off “Indie Thursdays” here are full swatches and review of 365 Days of Color “Birthday Bash”
365 Days of Color describes “BB” as:
“Who doesnt love birthdays?? I know I do. this reminds me of a birthday party, filled with confetti glitter!!! There are multicolored shredded glitter in this polish along with fine turquoise glitter all suspended in a white base. Which let me tell ya, white base glitters are my favorite!!!!!”

Guess what I have for you, lovelies!
A little blurb from their website:
7 pastel shades, inspired by confectionery delights from Marie Antoinette’s table.
Recklessly pigmented crème formula is rich, smooth and opaque in just two coats. Each bottle comes equipped with a flat, wide brush for superb control and flawless application.
Never tested on animals. 3-Free.
I originally intended to purchase the entire Lime Crime debut nail polish line titled “Les Desserts d’Antoinette”. Unfortunately I was only able to pick up “Milky Ways” and “Pastelchio”. I know many of you have said you are waiting for swatches before purchasing, so here are two to start.
The Lime Crime website describes “Milky Ways” as: cream off-white french tip nail polish. Opaque cream. Great for doing accents, half-moon and french tip manicures!

I dropped by Target over the weekend where I saw a very stylized, very stocked and very bright end-cap featuring “the Cos Bar by Target”.
This is a line featuring items such as tweezers, soap, nail files, shower gel, lotions, even makeup remover wipes and travel cosmetic bags. Everything is leopard print and everything is in shades of yellow, green, orange, purple and blue. The price-point ranges from $1.00 (double sided nail files) to $20.00 (a hanging roll-out organizer bag).
..whatever that means.
The line also features four nail lacquers priced at $3.00/each.
The bottles are unlabeled, but the official colors are:

Today’s Nail Of the Day is a Polka-Dot Sandwich!
Using OPI “My Pointe Exactly”, Wet N Wild’s Spoiled in “Shuffle the Deck”, and China Glaze in “Heart of Africa”
Today’s NOTD was a super simple way for me to get the look of polka dots without much effort.
Some noted that the “sandwiching” of the glitter resulted in a glazed circus cookie effect- which is also more than perfectly acceptable for me. A delectable weakness of mine.
