Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat

I love matte nails but I hate matte nail polish…does that even make sense? I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with matte nail polish because I love the way it looks, but I hate how clumpy and uneven most matte nail polishes end up looking. So what is the solution? A matte top coat, of course! Over the years I have tried TONS of matte top coats and today I am going to share with you the latest one that I have tried. The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat gave my other matte top coats a run for their money. Let’s take a look at it in action. Continue reading “Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat”

Lemming Lacquer The Birth Of Venus – PPU April 2019

Lemming Lacquer The Birth Of Venus – PPU April 2019

Are there works of art that move you? I feel so lucky that there are so many paintings, sculptures and novels that entrance me and make me believe in a higher power because surely the artist was God-touched to have created such a masterpiece. One of my favorite paintings by Botticelli is The Birth of Venus and I can confirm that the first time I saw it in person, I stood there in awe for a good 30 minutes. Let’s take a look at my swatches for Lemming Lacquer The Birth Of Venus below. Continue reading “Lemming Lacquer The Birth Of Venus – PPU April 2019”

KBShimmer The Kid – PPU March 2019

This weekend I watched my nephews and they were sick so of course, now I’m sick. Ever since Vincent started school, I feel like he is always sick. Then Jonas gets sick…and then we all get sick. I have a pretty nasty cough going and my head is throbbing, so I’ll just have to rely on Theraflu to get through the next few days. I can’t believe that this is the last week of February because I have some work deadlines coming up for month end. The good thing about month end is that we have yet another Polish Pick Up coming up. Today I have KBShimmer The Kid to share with you so let’s take a look at my swatches below. Continue reading “KBShimmer The Kid – PPU March 2019”

Zoya Innocence Collection

Zoya Innocence Collection

I sure love rain, but I don’t like some of the problems that come with these storms. It has been raining on and off since Saturday and we keep getting flood warnings. I  am going to say what everyone says: Californians don’t know how to drive in the rain. It is pretty ridiculous but I guess this is what happens when you have gorgeous weather 90% of the year. Anywho, since it was raining, I ended up doing some swatches of the Zoya Innocence Collection which arrived early. Let’s take a look at my swatches below.
