NOTD: Milani Black Swift+Zoya Kotori!

Quicki, quick NOTD post for you this morning :) It was icky and rainy and sleety and icy and snowy here last night - yes, all of that happened within a few hours last night. The kid was sposed to have his Science Fair last night, but they postponed it because the weather was going to be gross ... and boy was it ever gross! Anyway, on to the nail prettiness!...more

China Glaze Dandy Lyin' Around swatches+review

What a lovely time of year! I'm joking, of course, because it's the tail end of winter, and we haven't had sun for days! I had to get creative and take some of my blog photos in natural light, but not direct sunlight.They aren't bad, actually, but the pure sunlight would have been so much better!...more

Zoya PixieDust Nyx and London swatches+review

I have a wonderful sister-in-law who let me try out her Zoya PixieDust polishes that she purchased during the recent promo. I don't have any of these myself because I'm still on the fence about them. I love the concept, I'm just not sure whether I like it or not...so it's a good thing she let me try the ones she got! :)...more

Pure Ice Home Run+Sticks 'n Stones!

Just a quick polish post today...of a combo I LOVE! When I wore Pure Ice Home Run, a creamy mint green, all I kept thinking about what mint chocolate chip ice cream. I wondered if I had a dark brown chunky glitter. I wonder how awkward that would actually look in the bottle...... hahah! But then I remembered how I do have Sticks 'n Stones! I can put Sticks 'n Stones over anything and it end gorgeous. This was no exception!...more

Layla Hologram Effect Jade Groove swatches+review

I was able to snag this beauty on clearance at Ulta recently, and I'm super happy about it! Yes, I'm talking about a holo...can you believe it? I'm not much of a holo person, as any of my followers knows, but when I met the Layla ladies at Cosmoprof last year, I was able to try some of their amazing holos. I love them :) I haven't been able to find many other commercial holos I like as well. So this very light airy green (which flashes blue a whole heck of a lot) is right up my alley!...more

Wow! A real post! hahaha It seemes like forever since I've put up an ACTUAL post - one that isn't a giveaway or a giveaway winner! Today's post is my review of the Pomegranate Nutritional Cuticle Oil from Born Pretty Store. It smells delicious!!! Not I'm not really sure if it's supposed to smell like pomegranate or not, because it doesn't - it smells like delicious apples. Delicious green apples....more
