Gloomy Weather Half Moon Manicure

The weather here in Charlotte has been very Ohio-esque lately. Basically cloudy, cold, snowy. Miserable! This half moon manicure matched the weather and my mood. I used Nina Never Glum Plum (Essie Smokin’ Hot dupe) and OPI Parlez-vous OPI?. I ended up liking these colors together more than I thought I would. Not much else […] Continue reading →

OPI – Plum Full of Cheer

Here is the last of the OPI Holi-Daze Ulta Exclusives. I saw and loved Plum full of Cheer and All the Berry Best – and ended up getting Gift of Gold for free (Alli chose to get the Holi-daze mini set instead). I will say that Alli’s experience with Gift of Gold sounds very  much […] Continue reading →

OPI All the Berry Best

This is one of three 2010  OPI Holiday Ulta exclusives. I picked up the Holi-daze mini set and this was probably the polish I was least excited about. In the bottle All the Berry Best appears to have a bit of a gold/red duochrome effect in the bottle but on the nail it is just […] Continue reading →

OPI Gift of Gold

I have always had great luck with Ulta OPI exclusives. Merry Merry and Think Merry! Pink Merry! are some of my favorite pinks I own. So this year when Ulta had 3 OPI holiday exclusives and they were all available in a super cute mini set for only $6.95, I couldn’t say no. This is not a […] Continue reading →

Ulta Star Party

I was at Ulta to pick up the Ulta exclusive OPI Holi-daze mini set and spotted large tubs of Ulta Limited Edition nail lacquer at the register. There weren’t any ground breaking colors but they were only $.99 and Star Party caught my eye. Star Party is a super shimmery deep red polish. The shimmer […] Continue reading →

Barielle Jess’ Champagne Toast

I spotted Barielle’s Holiday 2010 Holiday Hustle collection display at Ulta and this polish immediately stood out along with Snow Day. I love anything purple and shiny! Barielle describes Jess’ Champagne Toast as a “metallic violet with rose gold glitter.” That is accurate. More accurate than what I probably could have come up with. Application was great. […] Continue reading →

Victoria’s Secret Midnight Glamour

I don’t know about y’all, but when I think Victoria’s Secret I certainly don’t think amazing nail polish. So my expectations were not high for this polish. Midnight Glamour is the nail lacquer from the limited edition makeup collection of the same name. I picked it up solely for the packaging. The bottle is gorgeous and I […] Continue reading →

Barielle – Snow Day

I’ve been wanting to try Barielle ever since I saw them at Ulta a few months ago. I wasn’t really wow-ed by the Fall Collection so when Alli tweeted that their winter display, Holiday Hustle, was up I called her right away to see if there was anything worth getting. Needless to say I was […] Continue reading →

H&M Bella’s Choice

Ok, I know I can’t be the only one who was seriously excited for Eclipse to be released on DVD this weekend! This was the perfect polish to honor such an occasion. Katie wore this when Eclipse was released in theaters and her experience with this polish was VERY different from mine. Bella’s Choice is […] Continue reading →
