Dollish Polish Go Luigi!

Dollish Polish Go Luigi!

It’s supposed to rain here again, and I am super happy about it. I don’t know why I’ve always loved rain so much, but it’s just super cozy weather. I definitely don’t like driving in the rain because here in SoCal, we basically forget all normal rules of the road and drive around as if we were in bumper cars. Since we’ve had such a bad drought, I really do hope that we get enough rain to help us through the dry patch. Last night I worked on two manicures for later in the week, and I was quite proud of myself for actually doing things in advance. Now if I could just write up my posts in advance, that would be great! A girl can dream, right? A couple of weeks ago I pulled out all of my indies from my melmers to admire them. Do any of you do that or is it just me? I love how huge the indie market is no, but I easily become overwhelmed by all the different brands and collections. I think that one of my top favorite collections is the Dollish Polish Super Mario Bros. Collections because I was/am a total Nintendo nerd and Super Mario Bros. was my first video game. I still remember the pure moment of euphoria the day we picked up our NES at Toys R Us. Isn’t it funny how you can remember feelings that you had when you were a child? I don’t recall specifics about that day, but still get butterflies thinking about what it was like to go to the store and pick it up. I also recall the cashier saying it was like $100-something and I was thinking that was sooo much money. Anyway, the reason I started talking about Nintendo is because today I have Dollish Polish Go Luigi! to show you.

12I started out with two coats of Sinful Colors Peppered Amazon. I don’t know about you, but I think this is one of the prettiest Sinful Colors to come out in a really long time. The green color is gorgeous and that shimmer really elevates it. Despite the heavily pigmented formula, it did not stain my nails.

34Dollish Polish Go Luigi! is a great glitter topper full of blue, green and turquoise hexes in varying sizes as well as silver stars.  I absolutely love this!

What do you think of this glitter topper? What do you think about Peppered Amazon? I really like this combination, but I think that next time I will use a dark black polish as my base because the glitter will really pop. Well, I hope you’re having a nice day, and I will talk to you soon!

Aren’t you glad it’s Friday? This week has really dragged for me so I’m relieved that I now get to enjoy a couple of lazy days. I don’t know what’s up with me lately. I think it’s a combination of feeling physically crappy and mentally exhausted. Yesterday when I was going in to work, I saw my old psychiatrist. He didn’t see me because I was walking way behind him, but it brought back a bunch of old crap and I’ve been feeling pretty sad since then. To be honest, I think 90% of my issues right now have to deal with my medical issues and how shitty I’ve been feeling because of them. I need to be more vigilant about taking my meds because I’ve made a lot of improvements in my diet but still feel shitty. Anyway, enough about me feeling craptastic and let’s take a look at this GORGEOUS polish, ok?

Sinful Colors Peppered Amazon 1Sinful Colors Peppered Amazon 2Sinful Colors Peppered Amazon 3When I first saw Sinful Colors Peppered Amazon on Yadi’s blog, I knew it had to be mine. IMMEDIATELY. Since Walgreens had Sinful Colors on sale the weekend I went looking for it, they were all out so I ended up finding it at Rite-Aid. It’s insanely gorgeous, isn’t it? The formula is great so I promise you will not regret this purchase one bit.

Tonight I’m going to go watch a movie and get dinner with a friend so at least I’ll be able to relax a bit and have some fun. On Saturday I’ll be going to a birthday party for my little cousin so I’ll get to see a bunch of kids including my little peanut. I can’t wait! Well, I’m going to cut this short but I hope to have a more “substantial” post for Stamping Saturdays….you all know how I love stamping!!! Thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.

Guess what, chillens? I’m done with work for the weekend so that definitely deserves a little bit of a celebration…which means that I bought some polish.  I bought a few colors at my local beauty supply and I also ordered some minis from Lush Lacquer. I’ve never tried that brand before so I’m super excited because their new collection of bright polishes is right UP MY ALLEY.  I wasn’t super happy with how long it will take to get my polishes, but I don’t have to be an impatient asshole…I can definitely wait since I have plenty of stuff to play with and swatch in the meantime. For those of you who read about my head banging episode yesterday, I am glad to say I feel a lot better. My head is still a little sore where I hit it but I don’t feel sleepy or nauseated any longer…well, no more than usual after having to be at work on a Saturday at 6 am.  Thank you for all  sweet messages on here and on twitter.

So for today, I have a fun post. My Blues Smackdown post got a lot of hits last time so I know that people are always looking for dupes. Being that emerald is the Pantone Color Of The Year, I decided to do a comparison post for some gorgeous greens. I hope you enjoy this and that it can save you a few bucks if you’re wondering if you have a dupe or not. Let’s get ready for my Greens Smackdown!



Color Club Abyss – Illamasqua Venous – OCC Chlorophyll – YSL Vert d’Orient







I don’t think that any of these polishes are 100% exact dupes, but OCC Chlorophyll and Illamasqua Venous are pretty darn close. They are the exact same size (.5 oz) but Illamasqua retails for $17 while OCC retails for $10. In terms of formula, I think that OCC Chlorophyll is just a tiny bit thinner, but it’s not a huge difference.  The priciest one is YSL Vert d’Orient and it is also the darkest one of the bunch. I reviewed it here yesterday. Now, is it really worth $25? That’s up to you to decided. Color Club Abyss is the brightest one here and at $8-it’s a steal!

Here is another comparison of 4 more gorgeous greens:


Color Club Wild Cactus – Nubar Into The Wild – Sation RV There Yet?  – Sinful Colors Rise And Shine






What do you think about these? I feel pretty confident in saying that Sation RV There Yet? and Color Club Wild Cactus are 100% dupes in terms of color. The Sation ($5.00) has a super sheer jelly formula that takes a lot of coats–4 here–to build up while the Color Club ($8.00) only took two. They are both gorgeous! The base color of the Nubar ($8.00) and the Sinful Colors ($1.99) is very similar but the Sinful Colors has a lovely shimmer throughout. I also found the Sinful Colors formula to be very thin but it was very buildable.

I hope that this post was helpful. I kind of dread doing these comparison posts because I realize how many dupes I probably have and don’t even realize it. However, I know that these posts are good in helping you decide if you really need a particular polish. Let me know what you think in the comments! Do you end up purchasing a lot of dupes? Do you regret getting them? Let me know if you have any other polishes that you think might be good dupes for these.

Have a wonderful weekend, and I will talk to you soon!

She’s Having A Baby!

No, not the Kevin Bacon movie! Today I have something special for you: I am happy to help in sharing the news that Nicole, from Polish Me, Please!,  is having a baby! Let me tell you a little bit about Pregozilla–I mean Nicole. She is one the very first (maybe the first??) blogger friend that I made when I started my blog about a year and a half ago. I am so lucky to have met someone like her who is kind and hilarious while being totally snarky–we egg each other on and have a blast. So today, a few of us future “online aunties” have gotten together to do a post with baby-themed nails. Are you ready for my contribution?

Sinful Colors Unicorn

To start, I painted my nails with Sinful Colors Unicorn from the Sugar Rush Collection. Every bad thing that you have heard about this polish is true. The formula is such a pain in the ass because it’s crazy streaky. I applied 4 coats here and I am still not satisfied with how it turned out. The worst part is that I love this shade of yellow but the shit-tastic formula totally ruins it.

Don’t diss my nails; it’s the thought that counts, right? I was thinking of those cute little building blocks when I did these nails. I’m super happy for Nicole, her husband and her two fur babies although I am suspecting that Minnie is going to be crazy jealous of the baby and is always going to be up in Nicole’s face for attention even more. hahaha Good luck with that, Nicole! Both Frosso and I would like to volunteer to take Bubba off her hands, though. hehehehe

Don’t forget to check out all the other baby nails from my favorite nail polish soul sistas!

Sinful Colors Cinderella

I was really excited to try this color because I had heard so much about it. I like my baby blues for sure and when I saw the pretty shimmer, I thought that it would be a winner for sure. The polish is extremely sheer; I applied four coats for the pictures below, and I could still see vnl faintly. I added a few drops of Seche Restore to make it easier to work with and that seemed to help out tremendously.

I don’t have much to say about this polish. It’s nice and a great bargain but I hate vnl with a passion. I guess I could wear some granny panties to eliminate the vnl, but that just seems like too much work. Have you tried this polish before? What do you think of this color?

Sinful Colors Zeus

I finally got around to trying my first Sinful Colors polish. I bought 4 of them a few weeks ago when they were on sale for $1 at Walgreens. I have to say that I absolutely love this color. It’s just what I was in the mood for. The formula left a lot to be desired: it was goopy and runny at the same time and I found it very difficult to apply it evenly. For the second coat, I added a few drops of Seche Restore to the polish and it was perfectly smooth and manageable.

How beautiful is that shimmer?

Today I saw Dr. H for the last time, apparently. He told me that he was going to be working at a new place starting in July. Ugh. I really liked him. He was the one who treated me during my last hospitalization, and I feel really comfortable with him. He’s not my therapist, just my psychiatrist so we mainly focus on my meds and how I’m feeling. We talked about him doing the freaking dog letter again but I guess all those things have to go through the director so Dr. H is supposed to call me back once he talks to her. It really sounded like they’re going to do it now. I won’t hold my breath.

I also didn’t go to the gym today. I was totally not feeling like it today so I’ll  be sure to work extra hard tomorrow. Working out daily has made me feel so much better. I feel like I’ve accomplished something! I need to go buy my mom a gift for mother’s day. She is a perfume lover like me so I was thinking of buying her a nice set. I might hit up Sephora tomorrow to check stuff out.

OH NO THEY DIDN’T!!! I was just finishing up this post as I watched Grey’s Anatomy and all of a sudden there is a plane crash. Ok, I nearly shit myself. I can’t wait till next week.
