I feel so very bad about my lack of posting lately. I’ve been feeling dumpy so my energy level has been at -10 so I haven’t even had the desire to sit down and write up a post.  I had hoped that by this time I would feel better with all my new meds and all, but I’m still just feeling so lethargic. Since I didn’t have to work yesterday, I spent the day with Peanut and he wore me out! He doesn’t even walk yet, but he goes bonkers with the crawling so I spent all morning chasing him around and keeping him out of mischief. Today’s polish is one that I can’t believe I hadn’t picked up yet: Color Club Cloud Nine.

Color Club Cloud Nine 1Color Club Cloud Nine is a beautiful addition to the Halo Hues Collections that basically blew everyone away. This polish may not look that awesome in indoor lighting, but look what happens to it in the sun or more direct lighting:

Color Club Cloud Nine 2Color Club Cloud Nine 3Bam! Look at the rainbow! Not only is this polish gorgeous, but the formula is also absolutely perfect. Please come out with another holo collection, Color Club!!! I will buy every single one!

I really hope that I start feeling better soon because I just miss being excited about blogging. I wish I had some energy to just feel good swatching and talking polish with you guys. I am trying to stay more active on Facebook because I love talking with all you guys. I am also going to start being a lot more active on Instagram now that I got my brand new phone which I am totally loving. Follow me on Instagram for nail stuff, Peanut updates and just general shenanigans. Here is a video of Peanut for your viewing pleasure:

Isn’t he so precious? I took him to IHOP where he proceeded to eat half of my scrambled eggs and half a pancake. I love this little guy so much and he is such a good boy. In the video he was clapping because the staff had just finished singing happy birthday to another patron.

I also wanted to remind you about my blog sale. I’ve added tons of new items and I also brought back the grab bags.

I am selling grab bags for $25 shipped which will consist of:

  • 2 full size indie polishes
  • 4 full size salon brand polishes
  • 1 drugstore polish
  • 1 mini indie polish

Pretty good deal, I think. So please take a look if you’re interested by checking out my blog sale page here. I hope that I’ll start posting more regularly next month so thank you for continuing to visit despite my sporadic posting. Thank you stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

 

Stamping Saturdays #43

Stamping Saturdays #43

I’ve been super frustrated with my pictures lately which has made me not even want to swatch. I just hate how they are turning out lately and even though I take like 30 shots of each mani, I feel lucky if I even get one shot that I am mildly satisfied with. I don’t know if I’m being extra picky or if I’m just having a really bad run with my new camera. Anyway, today I am posting SUPER LATE for Stamping Saturdays even though I got this mani done late last night.  Let me show you what I came up with.

1Zoya Willa (press sample) is a full coverage black creme. Nothing fancy about this polish, but it is one of those nice staple polishes to keep in your arsenal.

For this design, I used plate Bundle Monster 308 and Color Club Halo-graphic. It stamps pretty well over black, and it looks really pretty in the sun.

So what do you think about this mani? Did you do anything fun for Halloween?  I spent my evening with Peanut and taking him trick-or-treating. He was a cute little dragon as you can see below.

DSCN0957I can’t believe that he will be 1 year old next week!  He is such a freaking cutie pie. Well, I hope you’re having a nice weekend, and I will talk to you soon.

Stamping Saturdays #42

Stamping Saturdays #42

Happy Saturday and welcome to today’s Stamping Saturdays post. I’ve had a rather productive morning packing up blog sale orders and running some errands. I have been looking forward to the weekend since like Monday so I’m just enjoying my day so much. I also just noticed that season 6 of Sons of Anarchy is now on Netflix so I will be binge watching some Netflix tonight! So for today’s post I used one of the lovely holo polishes that I acquired recently: Color Club Halo-graphic.Color Club Halo-graphic 1Color Club Halo-graphic 2I shot Color Club Halo-graphic in two different types of  lighting so you can see what it would look like in the shade and out in direct light. This is such a spectacular holo! I absolutely love it. The formula is perfect like all of the Halo Hues.

BM-306 1BM-306 2I then used an image from Bundle Monster plate BM-306 for this flowery design. I really like how it turned out even if it does cover up a lot of the holo.

What do you have planned for this weekend? I have a bunch of swatching to do so that’s going to keep me busy while I catch up on all my shows. I hope you’re doing well, and I will talk to you soon!

Color Club Halo Hues Collection 2013 Part 2

 The products featured in this post were purchased by me.

 

Hola my peeps. I was looking through all my backlogged manis and I asked myself: why haven’t you posted these Halo Hues???? Well, I don’t really have an answer except that I’ve been preoccupied with other stuff, and I kind of forgot about them. Blasphemy, right? These are just so incredibly gorgeous that I don’t even have the words to describe them properly. As with all my previous Color Club Halo Hues experience, the formula on these is top notch. They are smooth and apply like a dream even without a base coat. They dry quickly and have a crazy holo effect. What’s not to love?

Eternal Beauty…what a fitting name. As if I didn’t love purple enough, Color Club had to put out this gorgeous purple holo. All I have to say is that if you love purple, get this. If you love holos. Get this. If you don’t get it, then you’re probably nuts anyway so don’t worry about it.

And not to be outdone, here is Over The Moon. Seriously. Yes, you need this one too.

So, you can already tell that I love the Color Club Halo Hues, right? I mean, the wear on these is fantastic, the formula applies smoothly and evenly and the colors are gorgeous. I’m not trying to sell you on these–I think the pictures speak for themselves. What do you think about holo polishes? Are you tired of seeing them? Do you want more? What are some of your favorite holos? Please share!

Thanks so much for visiting today, and I will talk to you soon!

Love Nail Lacquer Ticklish

Something just hit me: who are these people who appear on The People’s Court? I mean, most of them are so disastrously ghetto that I have a hard time looking at them. It’s like a trainwreck that you have a hard time looking away from no matter how gorry the scene may be. I don’t even know why I watch it except out of maybe some kind of morbid curiosity. Anyway, today has been pretty ho-hum. Work sucked as usual, but I have an interview on Thursday so maybe things will improve soon. Since I was so annoyed after work, I decided to go get a manicure. I always regret it because most places do such a horrid job and this was no exception. After I got home, I took off the polish and I’m probably going to paint them another color soon.  What a waste of $15!!!! The share I’m sharing with you today is one of those strange colors that I don’t know if I really like. Love Nail Lacquer is a strange brand that I have only seen in a few nail places–the kind that look like the land that time forgot. I tried looking the brand up online, but didn’t really find much information. Oh well! This strange orange-peachy polish is Love Nail Lacquer Ticklish.

Does this color make my skin look strange or is it just my monitor? The formula on this polish was pretty nice: it was smooth and pigmented. I can’t say that it’s a color that I’m super excited about, but it is rather unique to my stash so that’s a huge plus. I applied 2 coats for the swatches above along with a coat of my trusty Seche Vite. Have you run across this brand before?

Anyway, I hope you’re having a good week–can’t wait for hump day…especially since it’s my day off! Wooo hooo! Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

Color Club Halo Hues Collection 2013

The other day when I went to my nail polish Mecca, the owner shopped with me. Yes, he actually put stuff in my basket. He pulled out all the stuff that wasn’t on display yet to try to tempt me. He actually did not have the Halo Hues out on display but he took them out from behind the counter like an evil polish Jezebel. I instantly wanted them all, but I showed a little self-restraint and only brought home two of the 6 colors because I already have a big collection of holos. The two that I ended up purchasing are two unique colors in my collection, so I was really excited about trying them out. Here are my two picks from the Color Club Halo Hues Collection for 2013.

Color Club Cosmic Fate

I really loved the idea of a nude-type of holo. Is that an oxymoron? Well, this is a nude if it was on crack and meth. Cosmic Fate definitely did not disappoint. It’s a peachy-gold color that looks rather tame in low light but absolute goes nuts in direct light. The first two pictures were taken indoors in my light box and the last one was taken in direct sunlight.

Color Club Kismet

Kismet is what I wished butter london Trustafarian had been. This is like the perfect pale seafoam green holo! I am glad that this has a definite green hue to it because I was afraid it would look like all the other silvery holos that are pretty much everywhere nowadays. So pretty!

Have you picked up any of the new Halo Hues for 2013? If you’re new to holos, I think these are definitely worth it. The formula is really great and you don’t need any of that aqua base nonsense. Let me know what you think of these shades and if you have spotted these in your area. Thanks for the visit, and I’ll talk to you soon!
