OPI Ulta Holiday Exclusive Speak For Your-Elf!

Good afternoon! I have to apologize for not posting much in the last week. It's been really busy around my house, and I've hardly had a chance to sit down! We've had company,been shopping(lots)decorating for Christmas,cooking etc...I'm tired! I don't think I'm going to do much today. I'm ready for a lazy day! ;-) It is my stepson's birthday today, but he doesn't want to do much. We are having an awesome cake, and he wants take in, so it's an easy day.

This year Ulta has three Holiday exclusives again. Two of the three, are just renamed. One of them is an exact dupe to one of the Muppet polishes, and the other is a dupe for a Nicole by OPI. I picked up the red one, which is called Speak For Your-Elf! It's a gorgeous jelly red glitter, and I know it's a dupe to something, but it was so pretty, I had to get it. Also, being the red lover that I am, I kinda had to get it. ;-) It's very similar to China Glaze Ruby Pumps. However, I actually think I like this new OPI better! I know! Crazy! I never,ever thought I'd like something better than Ruby Pumps. ;-) I used two coats, and application was wonderful.

Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you are having a great Sunday! :-)

My Turkey Day Mani! Happy Thanksgiving! :-)

Happy Thanksgiving!!! Are you having lots of good food today? This is going to be a short entry, as we have family coming within the hour to eat. We have SO much food. We'll be eating turkey for a month! LOL! I wanted to get my mani. posted before the day was over. I used Finger Paints Cordur-Orange. It's the perfect pumpkin colored orange. It reminds me of pumpkin pie. I used two coats, and application was great. I then added one coat, of NYX Gilded Glitter on top, and added Joby Thanksgiving stickers to each nail.

First up, the completed mani.

Without the stickers.

Thanks for reading! I hope you are having a wonderful day, with lots of yummy food! If you aren't celebrating Thanksgiving today, I still how you are having a wonderful day! ;-)

Avon Holiday Glitters!!

Good morning! Happy Monday! ;-) How was your weekend? Mine was busy,busy,busy! I'm so sorry for not blogging for a few days. I swear, I go from having nothing to do, to being crazy busy for days straight. We're having Thanksgiving at our house this year, so we've had a lot to do to get ready for that.

I stopped in the Avon store last week, to grab some perfume for my mom. While I was in there, I spotted new holiday glitters! Of course, I had to get them. One did come in a set, and I almost didn't get it. However, I ended up liking everything in the set, so I went back to get it. :-)

The polish that that comes in the set, is called Sequined Turquoise. It's a really petty turquoise and silver glitter. Application was great, and I used two coats.

Here is a pic. of the set it comes in. It has a cute clutch,a eyeshadow quad and a lip gloss. I will wear three of the four shadows, and I'm in LOVE with the lip gloss. It was on sale too, so I grabbed it while I could.

It is available online here....

The second polish that I got, that is available on it's own, is called Violetta Sparkle. It's a grape colored jelly, with gold glitter. It also applied great, and I used two coats. This one is only $2.50 and is also on the website.... For some reason it's $2.99 on the site, but it was $5.00 so it's still a good deal. ;-)

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a great Monday! :-)

Piggy Polish Moonlight & Mistletoe

Good evening! I have a new holiday polish from Piggy Polish to show you tonight. It's called Moonlight & Mistletoe. It's a really pretty deep violet/purple color with pink and blue shimmer. I don't have too many colors from this brand, but they have been coming out with some great colors lately. As far as I know, the only place that sells them is Ulta. Or you can buy them directly from their website here....

Application was pretty good. It was a little on the runny side, but nothing too bad. I used two coats.

Do you have any Piggy Polishes? If so, which ones?

Best purple jelly ever, and NYX Gilded Glitter!

Good morning! Did you have a good weekend? Mine was pretty good. Was super busy, and that's why I didn't get a blog posted until today. I hope yours was good. :-)

I decided to take a break with the Sally Hansen Gem Crush collection. As much as I LOVE them, for some reason, they brought back the peeler in me! Not good. At all. I used to be horrible about peeling my polish off. I got better about it, and haven't done it ages. For some reason, the SH Gems polishes made me want to peel again. I did it FIVE times last week. So bad for my nails, and now I'm back to nubbins again. Ugh.

I am wearing a gorgeous purple jelly by Ruby Kisses. It's called Bold and the Beautiful. Seriously the best purple jelly I've ever used. It's a deep, grape purple jelly goodness. :-) Application was great, and I used two coats. I'm in love with this polish! It was only $1.99 too!

I did put a coat of NYX Gilded Glitter on top, and really liked the end result. I've had in on for the past couple of days. I'll probably change it today, after I clean. Ugh. I hate cleaning. I'm so putting it off right now. I put it off all weekend, so I have to do it today.

Anyway, enough about that. On to the pics! ;-)

Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you have a great day....even thought it is Monday. ;-)

More Sally Hansen Gems Crush Swatches!

Happy Friday!!! :-) I'm ready for the weekend, how about you? I have two more of the Gems Crush polishes to show you today. I can't stress enough how much I love these! The next two I'm going to show you, are Big Money and Cha-Ching!

I'm wearing Cha-Ching! today, and it's a gorg. red glitter with round silver glitter. Application was again, great, and I used two coats. This one reminds me of OPI Muppets Gettin' Ms. Piggy With It,China Glaze Eye Candy Love Marylin. The difference is, that this one is opaque in two coats. Or one thick coat.

Big Money is a goldish tan color (does that even make sense?)with round lavender glitter. This one is pretty unique. I can't think of a color like it. As with all of these, application was great, and I used two coats.

Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you are having a wonderful Friday! :-)

New Sally Hansen Gems Crush swatches and review!

Good evening! I have a great new Sally Hansen collection to tell you about. I had no idea there was going to be another SH collection out already. I found them at CVS. The collection is called Gem Crush. There are eight polishes, and they are all glitters! They look like a mix of the OPI Muppet collection and the China Glaze Eye Candy collection. I don't have any of the CG Eye Candy collection yet, but I do have all of the Muppets. I have to say, that I actually like the Sally Hansen collection better. The reason being is, they apply opaque in one thick coat, or two thinner coats. How great is that?! Also, they are fast drying, and they do dry very fast. I also love the brush. It covers most of my nail in one swipe. They are pretty much awesome all around. I have two of these to show you in this post, and will show you the rest in the next few days.

First, here is a pic. of all the bottles.

L-R Glitz Gal,Lady Luck,Big Money,Cha-Ching,Razzle Dazzler,Showgirl Chic,Be-Jeweled and Bling-tastic

I wore Showgirl Chic yesterday, and loved it! It's a silver glitter with blue hex glitter. It looks like a dupe to China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara. I used two coats, and application was wonderful.

Today, I have on Lady Luck which is a deep pink, with silver holo hex glitter. I used two coats, and application was great on this one too.

Bottom line.....if you are a glitter lover, you need to get these. :-) They are fantastic. This is one of my fav. collections in a while. I found them at CVS, and I think that's the only place they've been found so far. I'm not sure if it's a limited collection or now. Hopefully it's not, and that way they will be easier to find.

Thanks for reading, and have a great night. :-)

Lynnderella Bibbitty Bobbitty Boo Blue & OPI Roadhouse Blues

Good morning! Are you having a good Mon. so far? The weekends sure do fly by, don't they? It's a gloomy looking day here, so that doesn't make Mon. any better. It's sure making me lazy! It's almost 1pm and I'm still in my pajamas! I just cant get going today. I feel like crawling back under the covers and having a nice long nap. Maybe, I'll just do that. ;-)

I have on another Lynnderella polish today, and it just might be my fav. one yet. It's called Bibbitty Bobbitty Boo Blue. It has lots of different shaped blue glitter,round purple glitter, and silver hex pieces here, and there. Some of the blue shapes are squares,hex and round. It's a gorgeous polish! I'm in love with it. Application was great. One thing, that I really love about these Lynnderella polishes, is that they are so easy to apply in just one coat. That's pretty unusual with glitters. I applied it over OPI Roadhouse Blues, which is another great polish. It's a dark navy blue color, and application was wonderful. I used two coats of Roadhouse Blues.

First up, are pics. of the two together.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful day! :-)

Color Club Santa's Cinnamon

Good morning, and happy Sat!! :-) Do you have any fun weekend plans? I don't have anything planned, and it's nice. I've been super busy the last few weekends, and while it's all been fun, it's nice to have a free weekend.

Color Club has released an exclusive to Sally's Beauty holiday collection. There are six colors, and they are all scented. I'm excited that Sally's is starting to carry Color Club. Hopefully, they will continue to get new collections. I bought three of the holiday collection, and today I have on Santa's Cinnamon. First I have to say, that this polish smells really,really good. Seriously. I can't stop smelling my nails. People might star to think I have some kind of a problem! LOL! I caught myself sitting at a stop light yesterday, smelling my nails. If someone saw me doing that, they probably thought I was a little odd. ;-) This polish smells like red hots, or cinnamon gum.

Now, on to the actual polish. I love it! It's a red jelly with lots of red glitter. It's super pretty, and sparkly. A great polish to wear for the holidays. Application was great, and I have on two coats.

The first pic. is without a topcoat, and the rest are with.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a wonderful Sat! :-)
