Essie Neo Whimsical

This milky pink was a major lemming for me and one that didn't quite stand up to my expectations. Pretty it is, but worth the $8 price tag? I would normally say yes, but this polish was seriously annoying to apply and took forever to dry both in between coats and even after topped with Seche. Although I can't think of a dupe offhand I'd be willing to bet it has one.

P.S.
This photo is from a couple months ago, I looked so much tanner and my nails were so long! Grow nails, grow!

Salem, MA

Just a few pictures I took from my trip to Salem :)

Here is the highway when we first left:


Gorgeous sky out the sun roof:

GIANT kitty in a pet boutique:


We went through the 13 Ghosts 3d haunted house. It was so scary and unique! I tried to take a pic through my glasses:

My feet in my favorite shoes on the paving. It was really beautiful but my shoes have a tiny wedge heel and it was a little hard to walk on.

And din-din! We went to a place called Maggio's outside of Salem. Parking was impossible in Salem and we were starving. It was alright, a little overpriced for what you get and the food could have been better.

I ordered Taramisu and it was horrible :( Obviously had been frozen and microwaved, the top was hot and the inside was frozen and ice-chippy.

All in all it was fun but it was so busy we didn't get to do much :( I would like to go back sometime that is NOT Halloween lol!

Halloween ruffian nails and FOTD for Salem, MA

Hello lovies! I'm sorry I didn't post for a few days but I'm back :)
This weekend I went on a trip to Salem, MA with a couple of my girlfriends. We had a great time despite it being ridiculously busy and getting lost 90% of the time. I have other photos I will share with you in a separate post but here are my nails.

I pretty much suck at doing konad or nail art on myself so after getting frustrated ruining my nails trying to Halloween them up I decided to do this.

I started with a layer of SH Evening Fog from the new complete line she has out. I was originally going to leave it as just that out of frustration but decided to layer Maybelline Orange Ole over it as a ruffian. And I didn't stop there, I added another layer of ruffian with Wet N Wild Black Fog over it which had a horrible wonky brush and screwed up several of my nails but oh well! Orange Ole also had a crappy brush- with a few much longer bristles. I'd rather deal with a cheapy not so good brush in general than one that has inconsistent lengths.

I then topped it all with Seche Vite for the night but before leaving I added SH Golden Ticket from the new complete collection over just the black for a little extra glam.

Candy mushrooms! But I prefer real ones, I love mushrooms :)


Holding our matching lighters.


Here is what I wore for makeup. I kept it simple using Wet N Wilds Greed palette, L'Oreal Telescopic waterproof eyeliner (love the applicator- the tip is so tiny!) and L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes. On my lips I started off with MAC Morange lipstick but as the day went on and I couldn't be bothered to reapply (not to mention we were drinking and eating quite a bit) I switched to a clear gloss.

My hair is crazy right now! Not just the color but it needs cut really bad but I am desperate for it to grow out at the same time :/

Essie Midnight Cami


Stupid dark blue, why can't you photograph better instead of absorbing my flash :(

Sally Hansen Purple Gala vs Milani Dot Com

How pretty is this? Dark purple with gold glitter- delicious. This is 3 coats.

I thought it looked familiar (although somehow they never do in stores lol) and I realized it reminded me of Hard Candy Mr. Wrong and Milani Dot Com. After much looking I can't seem to spot my bottle of Mr. Wrong so for a comparison of those check out PerryPie! Here it is compared to Dot Com:
Yup, totally not dupes or even close. Dot Com does have gold shimmer but it is much more subtle than Purple Gala. The purple base is really close but Dot Com's stands out a little better.

Sally Hansen Strobe Light glitter

Oh, if I could only squee the way I squee'ed when I found this lone bottle of Strobe Light in Rite Aid. I haven't seen this one before but the combination of pink and holo glitter is enough to send me into convulsions of excitement.

Here is one layer over Sinful colors Great Wall.


Check out this bottle shot. Better yet, click it to open the full size and than oogle all the glittery goodness:

Orly Solid Gold

I typically hate gold polish but Solid Gold is a gorgeous darker gold matte metallic. What a mouthful! From last years Metal Chic collection and is my favorite of the 3. Application was fantastic- 2 coats.

Latest Fyrinnae order Dia de Los Muertos and FOTD

The new Dia de los Muertos collection from Fyrinnae is now on their site, as soon as I notice I rushed to order and I was not disappointed!

For both the above picture of the pots and the swatches below:
From L-R and Top to Bottom- Danse Macabre (vibrant grass green with gold shimmer -free sample), Calavera Cupcakes (silver-purple), Eternal Innocence (peacock teal-green), La Noche and (deep yet bright midnight blue) Catrina Cabaret (dusty teal with purple shimmer)

I am blown away by how gorgeous these are. Such vibrant colors! I have a lot of Fyrinnae shadows but these have potential to become favorites (I'm looking at you La Noche and Calvera Cupcakes). And look below at the cute little sugar skulls on the labels, it's the little things that make me happy and this is one of them.

And because I couldn't resist playing when I got them, here is my FOTD...
