Where Is My Nail Polish Juju?

The beauty.com debacle is still ongoing. As you may recall, I ordered a nail polish set around 3 weeks ago and I still don’t have my items! I was sent out a replacement when I received my empty order and when I received the replacement, it was also empty!!!!! After ignoring me, someone finally got back to me and said that the sets were now out of stock in their warehouse so they couldn’t verify if other sets were also empty. Oh, how convenient. I was informed that they were going to receive a new shipment and that once they unpacked and inspected the new sets, they would send one out to me and also refund my money. I got my refund but haven’t heard anything else since early this week, but I won’t hold my breath when it comes to receiving that SpaRitual set.  That whole situation is such a freaking joke.

Well, get ready for today. I was expecting my Sephora shipment of nail polishes. I saw that a bunch of them were on sale so I stocked up. I ordered the following: Illamasqua Velocity, SOPI Who Let The Dorks Out, SOPI Slushied, Sephora Burst Of Mango Cream, Nails Inc Bruton Street, Nails Inc Gatwick, Nails Inc Heathrow and Nails Inc Hampstead Gardens. This is what I received:

All of these bottles of nail polish were in one bubble wrap baggie so maybe that’s how one of them broke and covered all the other bottles. I’m not interested in keeping bottles that are completely covered in nail polish and with ruined labels. If I pay for something, I want to get it in perfect condition. So anyway, I called Sephora and everything is pretty much out of stock now. Only 2 of the 4 Nails Inc polishes are still available so I’m returning everything else. I am keeping the Illamasqua polish and the glass nail file as well. The only reason the Illamasqua polish was spared is because it wasn’t in the same bag as all these other polishes and it was in its separate box. I’m so annoyed right now. Is this the universe telling me that I need to stop purchasing nail polish online? Empty boxes, exploded nail polishes….what a waste.

Alfie got his rabies shot earlier in the week so I was super worried about him after I read all the horror stories about dog vaccines. I was convinced that he was going to have a horrible reaction because he was so lethargic for a couple of days. He now seems like he’s back to his stubborn self. He has been really testy lately and throws massive doggy tantrums when he doesn’t get his way. He nips me when he gets annoyed, but he never really bites me. The other day I got so mad at him because he went apeshit when we got home after a 2 hour walk. Since I live so close to the beach, we have a great breeze so I’m not afraid of him getting too hot. I take his water bottle and dish as well as treats so that if he wants to rest, we can just stop somewhere nice.

I hope you all had a nice week and that you enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by!

    Wow. what stories. I have to check out Beauty.com so I can see where I'm never ordering from. As for Sephora, that's kind of a shock since they are usually packaged pretty well. Though I must say I've never ordered any nail polishes from them. Nasty nail polish karma 🙂 So sorry. When I order something I can't wait for it to arrive ~ I become a two year old ~ now, now. I think you should go out and buy yourself some presents and treats. Those are truly nightmare experiences.
    Alfie is a cutie and he's right about the water spiking, but not the nipping. What are the horror stories about rabie shots? Our little Sofi is 14 and never hangs out near other dogs, so we decided a few years ago to stop getting her booster shots.

    Awwww, love how Alfie is so good around children! I didn't know that there were bad reactions to vaccines. Dante has a micro chip between his shoulders, and it weirds me out that he has an implant….cyborg kitty. I was apprehensive about it too, because I heard stories of infection and rejection and reaction, but it was a requirement of the adoption process and they did it before I could react.

    I call bull on beauty.com. When I used to work in healthcare and an appointment effed up, we'd cover our butts with excuses that sound very much like this. Let's see if you get these polishes. When you get them, they will be the awesomest polishes ever, if if you don't like the color anymore, lol, just because of the adventure it was to get them!

    That sucks!! I've wondered ofter how none of my Nails Inc polishes from Sephora have never arrived broken. I can't believe they aren't even individually bubble-wrapped. And they don't even have a box! So annoying. When I used to order the Sephora by OPI polishes, they used to be bubble-wrapped individually, but the Nails Inc ones never are.
    Alfie is so stinking cute. My husband wants to play with him! I always show him your pictures haha. Glad to see he's back to his old self after his vaccinations. My dogs are always lethargic afterwards. My old Jack Russell, Kona, used to have allergic reactions to one of her vacs, and her face would break out in hives, which was really scary the first time. So pretty much every time we got her vaccinated she had to stay overnight with the vet. I said it was scary, but (sadly) it was really cute too. Her face was so fat and her eyes got squinty, and I wanted to just squeeze her lol it was like a really fat puppy.. except not.

    Oh my GOODNESS!!! I can't believe what a mess your polish ordering experience has been lately. How annoying! Idk know if it's a sigh to stop buying but I'd probably take a break just to avoid the hassle! Double empty box and now broken bottles. Geez. On the plus side Alfie is really cute, as usual. I would definitely not worry too much about the shots and also not read SO much stuff online cuz people will scare the SHIT outta you!! I definitely think the shots are way worth the risk- even for the poor doggy above who gets all allergic at least they aren't gonna die from rabies. Y'know? Plus if you ever want to take him to the groomer or somewhere like that you'll need his shots up to date. Shots don't even phase Minnie and Bubba anymore. He's just a baby tho so he's just getting used to all that. I'm glad he's feeling better tho. 🙂 That pic w your neighbor is too cute. I'm assuming she's the one who asks about you taking pics of your nails? Haha.

    Oh MY CUTENESS!!! Alfie is so stinking cute, especially with his spiky mohawk! What an adorable puppy! I'm so glad everything went well with the rabies shot. It's always scary vaccinating your dog, yourself, or your children!

    Man, I am so sorry about your nail polish luck! How disappointing!
    Don't worry about vaccinating Alfie…I've never had a dog have an issue with their shots, either while being given them or afterward. He'll need them if he is boarded, groomed, or interacting with other dogs.

      I usually have pretty good luck with getting stuff shipped so I guess it had to happen sooner or later.

      About the vaccines, I think next time (I hope there will be a next time) I won't read so much stuff online. It's like when I go on webmd and diagnose myself with Ebola or something.
