My mental game of “catch up” continues, and so does my post-all-the-things game for my Beautiful Weekend. I have had this China Glaze Summer collection for a few months now. I actually started creating a post for it a couple of weeks ago, only to realize I was missing a swatch photo. Fail!! But (!!) … More China Glaze Summer 2021: Havana Nights
This is yet another post that I am super tardy in posting. I purchased the 8th Anniversary Duo several months ago. I think it might have been as long ago as January or even February, but I don’t remember for sure. Anyhow … as sometimes happens, my notes on this duo got a bit lost … More Colores de Carol 8th Anniversary Duo
Hidey-ho, Campers!! It is Saturday. My Beautiful Weekend is in full swing and already full of fun. I watched anime with my daughter until the wee hours of the AM last night. I am trying to fit in all the fun “mama time” I can before she moves away to college at the end of … More Three Weeks of Nails!
Remember Earth Day? Back in … April … ?? Or March … ?? Something like that. I shopped the Zoya exchange, like usual, although I usually donate my polishes instead of sending them in to Zoya for disposal. I took the opportunity to let myself have a little bit of fun picking polishes here and … More Zoya Earth Day 2021 “Haul”
Huzzah!! My Beautiful Weekend is quickly coming to a close. It is nearly 4:30PM on Sunday afternoon as I am typing this, and I can feel the weekend slipping right through my fingers as time carries me toward Monday morning. Monday! Ugh! Why do you torture me so??!!?? (Check out the drama, y’all! Ha!) I … More Sunday Swatch-a-Palooza: Butter London, Color Club, Essence, Fingerpaints, Jessie’s Girl, Julie G., Kokie Cosmetics, Savina, & Sparitual
It’s been a minute and a half since I last did a swatch-a-palooza post. I think my last one was at the beginning of July, and it’s now nearly the end of the month. What??!! I’ve gotta move my tail, or we are never going to finish swatching through my stash. As it is, I … More Saturday Swatch-a-Palooza: Bitzy & Black Heart Beauty
Y’all!! Believe it or not, I just swatched my first Fall collection of the year. Yep! Just yesterday, in fact. It was the Orly Wild Natured Collection, and I freaking LOVED it. But (!!), this post is not about that. I am still feeling all things bright or pastel or Summery. My heart always loves … More Cupcake Polish: Bermuda Collection
It’s been a hot minute and a half since I posted a manicure wrap-up. This is due to a lot of combined circumstances: Life is busy. Work is busy. Life and Work are busy. OK … so maybe only a couple of circumstances — ha, ha! Whatever the reasons, I hadn’t had a lot of … More So Many Weeks of Nails!!
How fun is a brand new Zoya collection? Well, I’ll tell ‘ya: For this gal, it’s loads and loads of fun, even if the collection is “just” a trio of new polishes. I could not resist putting in my pre-order for the Cosmic Pop Trio as soon as it came available, and as soon as … More Zoya: Cosmic Pop Trio
I have been loving hard on a few of the mainstream Summer collections this year. I have said this many times, and I will probably say it many more times in the future: I am not usually a Summer nail polish kinda gal. But this year, I find myself reaching for the corals and pinks … More Zoya Summer 2021: Dreamin’ Collection
