Flirty Slate...

- These were just some pictures I had taken with my real camera as opposed to my camera phone and figured I'd get them up now too.

Again I'm wearing Orly Flirty and for an accent Sinful Slate.

- I couldn't get the camera to focus on the ghost for some reason, fail. But he did have little hearts for eyes which was so cute.

- Aw, seeing my index finger nail makes me sad. Oh well.

Three Years...

Had an anniversary!  Three years, this was my eye look I wore for it.

Products used were:
  • Elf Eye Shadow Primer
  • Wet N Wild limited edition holiday palette in Baking A Cake
  • Ulta Extreme Wear Gel Eyeliner in Strut
  • Ulta Mascara Lash Blow Out

- This is a pretty subtle eye look.  And my first time using one of the baked eyeshadow palette's from Wet N Wild this year.  I'm not head over heels.  It's not terrible.  I think I liked the last year palette's so much more.   I bought two out of the three they have this year year, and instead of getting the 3rd palette I should probably do one of the 8 palettes pans instead, it'd be a much better choice for me I think, and I've eyed those since they came out.  I think the matte one is limited, which I was eh when I heard about it, but I've seen swatches and they always sway me.

- This was just a quick one I took with my camera phone before I took it off.

Few More Things...

- This is a package I got about a month ago (maybe it hasn't been that long, idk), but I didn't get to post it. It's from Aaron, my lovely gay husband. He went out and searched down some of the Sinful's I wanted so badly, and then included some extras. He sent me Sinful: Easy Going, Open Seas, and Star Fish. Zoya: Freja, Jane, and Dea.

- A few I got with store credit I had: Essence: Just Rock It! Orly: Flirty, Frisky, and Sweet Peacock - they were buy two get one free yay. China Glaze: Trendsetter.

- Then today I went to Big Lots, I got: Revlon Carbonite for 1.50 and Sula Teal which I've never had a Sula so yay, it was 2.50. Then I got a metal Beatles compact, love. It was 4 dollars.

Has anyone tried Sula?  And what are everyone's thoughts and opinions are Carbonite?

Also eep, I'm at 45 followers!!  That's so amazing.  Thank you everyone who's following me, you make me happy!  And I appreciate every one of you.

Eye Shadow Drawer...

- I used one of my empty drawers in my Melmer for my eye shadows. I'm totally an eye shadow, lip gloss, and nail polish girl. I'd need another Melmer for all my lip glosses and eye liners, primers, mascaras though probably, and I really don't have the room for that right now, and then what would I do with my cute train cases if I did. But anyway, eye shadows, yay. Those damn Physicians Formula suck, they either have a rounded top or like a pyramid top, which do not stack, which was annoying, I actually don't have them all in there, I have some in a little cosmetic bag since they just don't play well with others.

- And just for fun. I went out shopping with Joe the other day, and I got this at Forever 21, she got one too but she couldn't make it corporate so she gave me hers too. I love it. I've been wearing it a lot lately. I have issues with my ear piercings so this is a really nice change.

You can either put the chain of spikes in front like this or behind the ear, I've rocked it both ways.

Pretty Combo, And A Bad Break...

- Orly Flirty and Sinful Slate. Love. Love.

I also have a little ghost on my thumb that I got from Sonia - I did take better pictures on my real camera.
- And my ring finger nail is epic. This is the last picture of my index finger nail.
Seriously perfect.  Why can't all my nails look like that?  WHY.
- Because then this happened when I had to pop the hood.

That is the longest my index finger has ever been (which is why I let my nails be uneven because I wanted to know how long it would get.) and the thought of cutting my ring finger atm makes me die a little inside.

And my day was already full of crappiness, fail.

I'm Totally A Trendsetter...

- This is just a fun camera phone picture til I take real ones. I saw Amy post her swatches of this, and I put it on my wish list, it didn't even last on my wish list a day before I bought it. It's China Glaze's Trendsetter, then my ring finger (please excuse the mess there) is Sinful's Georgio. Trendsetter is such a ugly pretty color. A baby like baby poo, well a baby that also ate glitter anyway...
Still love it tho lol

Oh, I also changed my layout a bit, I added my stash link and my wish list link on the left side of the page now.

- And this is just another necklace I got off eBay, for like a dollar and change with free shipping, love.

Ruby Kisses Black Cherry...

- This is a ring I got off eBay, it's a bit too big for my pinky and too small for the rest of my fingers. I figure I can use it in pictures anyway, it's still super cute.

- Another ring from eBay, I am sooo in love with this one, it's too adorable for words. Sooo cute. I normally wear it on my pinky but I put it on a different finger for the pictures.

- Revlon Pink Again.
- Sinful Winterberry.
- Sinful Georgio
- Sinful Slate.
- Snowman polish in red glitter.
- Cute cosmetic bag by Sonia Kashuk.

This was a package from Sonia (of Nail Designs everyone should go check out her blog!), we did a swap because I was looking for the Sinful's, she was so sweet to include the other stuff. I'm so happy, I love it all. And that's my first and only Snowman polish so I was really excited for that one.

So In Love With This Red...

- I've bought a lot of awesome jewelry pieces in the last month, most were off eBay but I found this in a store called Vanity in the clearance for 1.98, how awesome. I love it.

- And this is just a picture I took tonight of my mani. I actually started with just doing the red as an accent and a blue on the rest of my nails but the blue was super sheer and I wasn't liking it as much as this red so I took it off and started over and did just the red. It's Ruby Kisses Black Cherry which I got in a little beauty supply store for 99 cents, also awesome. I love a good deal. I took better photos of this with my real camera I'll try to post them soon.

- This was the base color, Sally Hansen Hard As Nails "Rain Cloud", I really like the color and I got it in a set of two at the Dollar Store, so it was 50 cents, can't beat that.

- The top color is Ulta's Devious, it's a nice dark purple, I got it when they had them on sale for 2 dollars, not too shabby either.

I thought they looked nice together, just wish my lines/curves had been straighter.

Tuff Scents - Hope.

- This photo is blurry to try and show that gorgeous sparkle in the bottle, look at it, be mesmerized.

- I added a little fimo accent to my thumb here, it's from a collection of 'sweets' I got on ebay. Thought it was kind of cute with the polish.

Then the last few were just a couple outside shots I tried to get in the sun.

I loved this polish. I admit I wasn't sure what "China Rain" would smell like, but it was pretty, and even with my top coat I could still smell it for days. And it wasn't overpowering, it was pleasant. The wear was good on this polish, the application was good, I had been worried a little about using the brush since it's longer due to the bottom length but you get the hang of it fast.

All in all a beautiful lovely polish.

Which you can buy here:
They have free shipping on online orders currently, so if you're interested, run don't walk there.

This was sent to me for review, my opinions were entirely my own and honest.

Tuff Scents...

I got these for review from Tuff Scents. I was so excited to get these. We've all seen scented nail polish on the market. Sometimes the scent can be overpowering, or not last, it's really hit or miss.

I was most excited to get the Lilac scented polish, because lilacs are probably my favorite flower, and that's kind of an odd scent to just stumble upon (but that's what I did and that's how I first fell in love with their product - without trying it - but knew I must.)

As you can see the three I got are Loyalty (Lilac), Kiss (Cinnamon), and Hope (China Rain), I love these bottles, I think they're so cute, and the lids are roses how sweet is that? And the labeling is lovely, love the little definitions on the back, it's totally up my alley.

There's free shipping on online orders on the website now as well, Idk how long that is for, if it's promotional or forever in the foreseeable future, so go check out the site!

Expect swatches and reviews soon!

Nail Mail!

These two are from Katie over at The Nailaholic, I won her giveaway, (sorry I'm so late in posting this Katie), you should totally go check out her blog. She was sweet to include the candy, yum. The one in the pop can was fizzy and interesting, I'd never had it or heard of it. The polish is Diamond Cosmetics "Don't Teal My Heart Away".

Now this one was a trade I did with Darlene, she's a lovely woman I met on Facebook. She sent me Alien Nails nail polish and Cabaret nail polish, I'd never heard of either, how fun getting new polish brands I don't know. I want one in every color (or brand really), one in every room.

Then we have a Secret Pumpkin I got. Halloween is my favorite holiday. Nikki sent me my package. I was so excited for those little pumpkins because I don't have a Rite Aid here and didn't have any, so that was awesome.

And then we have Amy's package! She's I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous (which you should also go check out her blog, she's a amazing blogger and she's a sweetheart.), you'll probably be seeing a lot more posts about her packages, because we decided to be each other's Julep (but BETTER), we're going to send each other monthly packages. Yay, so excited.

She spoiled me in this package, I was so excited and happy.
She got me a nice candle and a Eos lip balm, which Eos is my favorite, they're Mint and Lemon are to die for in case anyone else hasn't tried them.
I also got the Denim Blues Ulta Collection Vol. II
My first Color Club in Fame & Fortune.
Ulta polish in Deep Desire
The cutest nail files by Tweezerman's.
Essence in Can't Cheat On Me.
Cult Nails in Living Water.

- These are my current untrieds.  In the first picture you can see a Rimmel bottle next to the box which kind of helps show scale of how big the box is.  In the second picture I took an overhead shot to try and show how big the box was, and how far it goes back.

Haulage 3.

- I'm almost done with the haulage, or well I have two pics left but I'll save them for the next time I need to do a haul post, so I'm going to consider myself caught up with Haul posts atm, yay me!

Haulage 2.

- Trying to finish getting caught up on my haul posts, I'm sorry I've been so behind with my blog.  Life hasn't been a bowl of cherries (or cherry colored nail polish for that matter) and it's bleeding into all aspects of my life.   I actually do have a lot of swatch pictures that need to be watermarked and uploaded soon too.

Take A Peek...
