Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer So-fari So Good




Ever since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with going on a safari. In fact, I’ve been obsessed with archeology and anthropology for as long as I can remember so in my childhood fantasies, I always looked to Africa as the ideal place to make some groundreaking discovery. As an over imaginative child, I fancied myself a Mexican Mary Leakey who would one day find something amazing in Olduvai gorge–which I did try to recreate by digging holes in the yard and calling it a “Plant Club” that I forced my brother and neighborhood kids to join. Oh boy…I was–and still am–a total nerd. As an adult, I have been to Africa twice but North Africa isn’t exactly the Saharan wilderness of my childhood dreams. (And yes, I love North Africa!!!!) Now that I’m taking about Africa, this reminds me of a trip that one of my best friends and I have completely dropped the ball on. When we were in our early 20’s, we promised to make the trek to Tanzania and climb Mount Kilimanjaro before we turned 30. Uhm, yeah…that’s going to happen now. Considering how out of shape I am, I would probably keel over and die halfway up the mountain. This is probably one of my biggest regrets and I still get so mad at myself for not doing this when we had the financial means because of our jobs in the travel industry. Coulda, woulda, shoulda…

As usual, I totally went of on a tangent when my main goal was to show you a pretty polish. Are you ready to see a really awesome color? Here is Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer So-fari So Good:

Morgan Taylor So-fari So Good 2I don’t care what anyone says…this color is so freaking gorgeous. I don’t even care that it brings out the red in my skin, I just love it. So-fari So Good is a creamy and glossy greyed out green. I think it looked a lot more green in the bottle, so I was a little surprised at how grey it looked once on my nails, but I still love it! The formula was the usual Morgan Taylor creme perfection…super smooth and pigmented and only needing two coats for full opacity. After yesterday’s disappointment with Something To Blog About, I am glad we bounced back with this one.

So I hope that you’re having a great weekend so far. I promised to make my famous red velvet cupcakes for a meeting at work on Monday so I’ll be doing those tomorrow. Other than that, I am going to be a total lazy ass. Ahhh…it felt good saying that. Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey there! I hope you have had a good weekend and that you are ready to start yet another workweek. On my end, I can admit I have been super lazy about my blog this past week. I am sorry for not getting around to answering comments until now, but I swear I have a good reason: I’m super lazy. Ok, that’s not really an excuse, but I have been pretty busy all week. I’ll start with the best news: I was able to get my work schedule changed so I no longer have to get up at the buttcrack of dawn in order to be at work at 5:00 am. Holy crap that feels amazing to share because now I will be starting at 7:00 am which means I won’t have to go to bed while the sun is still up! I can’t even tell you what a huge difference this is going to make in my personal life. Secondly, I had a friend visit this weekend and we seriously destroyed all my nail polish haunts. I’ve never gone polish shopping with someone who is just as polish crazy as I am so this was awesome because we egged each other on to new heights of frenzy induced polish purchases. Fun times!

Today I’m going to share with you a polish that had flown under my radar: Butter London Tart With A Heart. If you remember the early days of this blog, I was a major glitter hater until I came to my senses and realized that glitter is…life! haha! Anyway, I was super happy to finally get my hands on this gorgeous polish.

Butter London Tart With A Heart is a glitter explosion in a clear base so it’s perfect for layering. This polish will look different depending on what you use as a base color.  For this mani, I decided to use Morgan Taylor So-fari So Good which seemed like a strange choice because I have seen tons of people swatching Tart With A Heart on top of a black base. The glitter was super easy to apply, and I didn’t have any issues at all with getting even coverage with just one coat.

What do you think about this oldie but goodie? I am pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this glitter polish because I wasn’t that excited when I first saw it in the bottle. I can see myself sprucing up many manicures with this gorgeous glitter.

For more information on Butter London, make sure you follow them on Facebook, Twitter and check out their website. Thanks so much for stopping by today despite my random posting this week. I have tons of fun stuff coming up such as my swatches for the China Glaze Autumn Nights Collection and a new Jessica Summer Collection for which I have NO information yet, but the colors are freaking amazeballs.  I picked up A LOT of stuff this weekend so I have a lot of swatching ahead of me. Also, don’t forget to check out my blog sale.  I am extending the 10% off sale for a few more day so take advantage of it now. I will catch up with you later!
