Manicure Monday

Jelly sandwich time! I wondered how flakies would work in a jelly sandwich. So I started with a layer of Essie Shine of the Times then topped it with three layered of Zoya Frida. It ended up being very subtle and I like it. Really shines in the sun too.

Tiesday: Orange for the fight against Leukemia

So here at the office we have "Tiesday" which is when we all wear ties on Tuesday. (Tie+Tuesday=Tiesday) this week we wore Orange to honor the fight against Leukemia. Why? Well, last Monday our lovely, bright, all around amazing coworker Kim lost her two year fight with Leukemia. After a week of being devastated one of the girls here came up with the idea of making this Tiesday special in memory of Kim 
Yay orange tie! (Yay pic obviously taken before coffee has taken effect)

Of course I had to match my nails. I chose Zoya in Amy. This is such an axing color. The orange and gold flecks really make this one special. And being Zoya, the formula is a dream.

Manicure Monday

I'm alive! Sorry I have been MIA for so long. This whole multiple job thing is kicking my butt!! 

A few years ago this color came out as a Nordstrom exclusive and I fell in love with it. I lagged at buying it and missed it. Then butter London brought it back as part of their main line and I had to snatch it up. It was my "I survived the holiday season in retail" present to myself. 

So here she is. Butter London's Two Fingered Salute. I loooooove the copper specks. Looooove!

Swatch: Maybelline Drops of Jade

So I have a total weakness for black and white glitter. I also love milky glitter sandwiches so this one seemed totally up my alley! 


This is three layers with topcoat. Isn't it lovely? Sadly, this mani didn't even last a day. I have not had chipping this bad on a long time. I know I'm hard on my hands but just one day is sad! I love the look so might try it again to see if the chipping was a fluke, if it isn't then this will just be used to make some purdy nail polish jewelry.

NOTD : Sinful Colors Rain Storm with Faceted

I'm alive! Ok kinda. Lol. Juggling 3 jobs and still getting over the evil cold of doom. But! My nails are cute. Yay? 

Did a quick mani with a base of Sinful Colors Rain Storm. I love this color. It is the perfect dusty blue. I then topped it with Sinful Colors Faceted. I did one coat of Faceted and was a bit bummed the bar glitter was sparse on the brush. I think I chose the wrong base color as you can barely see the glitter. Or maybe I just need more glitter. You can never go wrong with more glitter. 

I'm going to do my best to blog more often. I have soooo many polishes to share and products to review. I can't wait to share with you guys.

Review: Perlier Imperial Honey Body Butter

This product was provided by iFabbo free for review.  I am not affiliated with Perlier.  This is my honest review.

With all the body lotions I have tried, it amazes me that I have never tried a body butter.  I always thought they would be too thick and greasy and never gave them a second look.  But when iFabbo had one for review, I figured it was time to finally go for it and give one a try.  


Initial Thoughts: This stuff is thick! I could hold the container upside down and shake it and nothing would happen.  It also melts into the skin much faster than I would have thought for something so thick.  The scent is is not what I would have expected.  I thought it would smell sweet like honey, but it has an almost woody scent to it.  The scent is really hard to describe.  

Overall Opinion: This is very moisturizing.  I put it on in the morning and come night my skin is still soft.  It absorbs into my skin quickly.  The only thing that would keep me from buying this would be the scent.
