Nail Polish Wear

The polish I'm wearing is Nail inc color warwick way, I painted my nails last monday night. Both hands have OPI Nail Envy as a base and 2 coats of polish. I wanted to do a test to see if this polish would hold better with a top coat or not. From the pictures below you'll the result

Left hand coat seche vite

Right hand no top coat

Top coat WINS 

Nail inc. - warwick way

One would think after having 50 plus nail polishes that she doesn't need Not me, companies keep coming out with new colors, textures and formulas and they keep getting better. I have read a few blogs about Nail Inc but could never get my hands on this brand do to that it was only sold just in London area plus there site does say they do not deliver outside of the UK and Ireland, that was a bummer for me. Until I found out that they are now selling it at Sephora (click here to check out). I have a Sephora down the street from my work so I called there first, the girl had no clue what I was talking about then she goes to say that since that store is small they don't carry everything which makes since now. The very next day I had off which I found myself driving down the highway lol to the mall OMG they had the display in this Sephora.

Julep nail polish Anne

Have you ever had a nail polish bottle for years upon years and finally break it out to find out that it was no longer good but wishing and hoping you could still try to use it? Well that was me with the polish Anne from Julep the other night an the bottle was new maybe a month old. It was so thick and gross I wanted to throw it out but in stand I wrote to the company last night to see what they can do and well I'm still waiting. That's not good customer service if you ask me.( I'm updating this part, I heard back from Julep today Susie contracted me and was so sorry she is sending me out a new Anne plus another polish with it, how sweet and cool is that, Now I can say what great customer service that is) I did take picture to show you. If you have gotten polishes from them have you had this problem or am I the only one.

With in the last few shopping trips I had made to different stores I have came across alot of things with owls on them. I'm really surprised but most of all so happy I Love Owls!!! I have had a thing for them for may years. The Horned Owl has been one of my favorites

There are so many amazing things about owls, the reason they move there heads all around is that they can't move there eyes (they can rotate their heads and necks as much as 270 degrees in either direct), they have the ability to fly almost silently and also more slowly in comparison to other birds of prey and the last cool thing about them is that they have an audible range similar to that of humans, but are far more acute to certain frequencies which allow it to detect even the slightest movements of its prey. Once the owl has determined the location of its prey, it flies towards it according to the last sound perceived. If the prey moves, the owl is able to adjust its flight pattern mid-flight

When I went into Bath and Body Works they had plugs in with owls, candle holder which I must have and a oil burner

Jello Poke Cupcakes

About a week ago my mother asked my oldest friend Lauri and her 3 daughters over for dinner. As the two of them were trying to figure out dinner, I on the other hand was thinking about desert . I came across a blog post about jello cupcakes so I then asked my mother if she ever heard of this, she goes don't you remember when you were little I would make jello poke cakes. I for one can't really remember much of my child hood, know idea why but I told her No,she goes an pulls out all these old recipe's and let me tell you they are old, the papers are turning yellow lol. It turned out to be a great idea for desert so she made them. She made the cupcakes the day of and since she is retired and I work, I had asked her to take pictures for my blog.

Nail Polish Wear

Have you ever wondered how long someones polish last on their nails before they paint them again? I do, so I'm going to take after photo's of my nail polish wear and tell you how long I had them  painted and when they stated to chip. So lets get started

  left hand

right hand

I painted my nails last Thursday night, I first started seening signs of wear about saturday morning when I was in the shower one nail started to chip. Then after that I would say the wear on the nails started more towards Sunday, where you could see the tips wearing away. From there it was all down hill chipping. All in all it did last pretty long 7 days and you can see from the pictures what took place.

base coat OPI Nail Envy the original
polish is Illamasqua Baptiste 2 coats

August Birch Box

When I check my email on Saturday morning it said that my birch box had shipped and would arrive on Monday (which is today). I did sneak peek on YouTube to see what was in it and to be honest I was pretty upset it was Meh. There were two different boxes that went out, one for the skin lovers which is me and the other for the makeup lovers. I'm pretty sure that's how it works but I  also could be wrong.  I'm still trying to figure out how they know what to ship to whom. So lets see what I got then shall we!!

When you first open the box the above pictures is what it looks like

Illamasqua Nailpolish -Baptiste

I have always heard amazing things about Illamasqua products, when Jen and I were to Sephora a few weeks ago this nailpolish caught my eyes. When you look at it in the bottle the fuchsia  pulls through with a copper tone. It's just a Gorgeous color all around but when it's on the nails it's more of a dark purple. In the picture below I put 2 coats on. I paid $14.00 for the bottle

Have you ever tried Illamasqua products? If so what do you think I should try next?

What's in my Night Stand?

I have seen so many girls on YouTube do "Whats in my purse?" or even shower video's but I have never seen anyone do "What's in my night stand or night table?" so I'm doing one. I did leave everything as is so that you can see how it really looks on a day to day basis.

This is what my night stand/table looks like from afar, just in case you're wondering that's Button's. The cats love looking out the window in my room.

This is the top looking down at my corner mess that I have going on. The nailpolishes are ones that I haven't used just yet that need I to use (OPI mermaid's tears, Essie braziliant, Butter London yummy mummy and Illamasqua baptiste that I just painted last night), my 2 lip products that were in my July favorites, bobby pins, my books I'm reading, Pocketbac hand sanitizer and some pills that I should take that help burn fat in the belly area that really have been sitting there for months on end! LOL!

Now you have the mess that is inside OMG it needs to get cleaned out, the containers I did get at the Container Store, love that place. On the left side is where I have all my Lush products that is expired already and should be in the trash plus my EOS lip balms. In the middle I have pens, earphones and pills ( vit C and head stuff). Towards the right it's all papers and my box with my migraine pills. What a mess of a draw, wait till you see the next one lol....

Last draw has all my Wii games, box to my watch Toy-Watch which is the brand and the purple box has nothing in it but for some reason I need to save it!

Is your night stand/table just as messy as mine?

July Favorites!!!

The month of July has been a HOT one here in Boston, I didn't really wear too much makeup and if I did wear it, it was more or less all powder products. The first 2 products I used were MAC's mineralize skinfinish natural in light medium and MAC's blot powder pressed which helped out with my nasty oily skin ( I did hit pan on the MSF).

I have been loving my Pure SoftLips lipbutter with SPF 15. I usually put it on before bed and when I wake up my lips are soo soft. The other lip balm comes from the Body Shop. I didn't think I would love it but OMG it's soo nice and smooth. I'm so glad my TBF sent it to me. Lol

Bath&Body Works Donut pocketbac

Who doesn't love Donuts? I have to say they are my favorite treat in the morning to eat. My favorite flavors I love are, chocolate frosted with jimmies yummo, chocolate glaze and jelly. Today I went into Bath&Body Works they had the donut pocketbac's I had to get all 5 how could have not lol. They were 5 for $5 plus I had a coupon that I got in the mail for one free so I did end up with 6 but give that one away I think that one was island escape which does smell nice an fruity okay getting off track here lets get back to the donuts now.
