Orly Galaxy Girl & THANK YOU!

Orly Galaxy Girl
Oh myyyyyyyy. How amazing is this color? Burgundy, blue, pink, orange... a true chameleon! The duochrome (multichrome) doesn't translate too well on the nail, unfortunately. This was 3 coats. Great formula, like most Orly's. Great, great polish!!!


Oh yeaaaah the bottle is sexy :)

A big, BIG thank you to all my followers! I cannot believe I have 900... absolutely unbelievable. I would have never thought anyone would actually be interested in my crap!
I'm feeling kinda in the mood for a giveaway! Maybe when I reach 1000? ;)


OPI At Your Quebec & Call and Romeo

OPI At Your Quebec & Call
This is a gorgeous murky, glowy olive green shade

It has scattered holo bits in it


Romeo is my 2 and a half year old long haired Seal Point siamese

his fur envlopes him like a halo, and it glows!

...kinda like this polish

Romeo is a curious kitty, always getting into things

He hates when I leave for vacation so he parks himself on top of my bags so I won't go...

But he's so cute, I always forgive him.

this was 3 coats of delicious, deadly chemical laced black label OPI.

Romeo likes to play

But he REALLY loves to sleep.. he could be a professional napper

he loves Christian

he loves me

Thanks for looking!


notd, etc extravaganza

Let's start off this post with a drool-worthy polish, shall we?

Optic Lusion Swing Time
Gorrrrrrgeous... perfect formula, 2 coats.

OPI Sparkle-icious
Sorry I couldn't get better pictures, it was a rainy day :( These pics don't do this polish any justice! It's so pretty.. reminds me of Mad as a Hatter, but this polish only has 3 colors in it while MAAH has a shit ton. This was 3 coats.

OPI Glow Up Already! over China Glaze Zombie Zest
I absolutely loved this combo! Even my mom liked it, and that's saying a lot. She's more into 'normal' colors. 3 coats ZZ, 1 coat GuA.

*flower intermission*

Zoya Lael
A pretty fall color! Nothing too note worthy. This was... ah... I want to say 2 coats but I forgot :( The formula wasn't too good. As you can see, there was a lot of cuticle drag.

*kitty intermission*

Essie Sew Psyched
I imagined I'd like this a lot more than I actually did. Maybe I was just in a sour mood, because I really like how it looks in the picture. Two coats. I'm starting to like Essie's brush :) Their fall collection really wowed me! Limited Addiction must be my favorite red of all time... it's so sexy.

I started with a bang, so I'll end with a bang!

OPI Tease-y Does It
I was SO excited for this one, and it lived up to my expectations! Just LOOK at it! Someone on the NB said it's like OPI Black Cherry Chutney on steroids. That's a pretty good description. Such a gorgeous color, great formula, and a 2 coater. Doesn't get much better than this.

Thanks for looking! Enjoy your weekend :)


burlesque + dusty haul

Ever since the press release came out, I have been DYING to get my hands on OPI's new Burlesque collection. OPI does the best glitters!

Extra-va-vaganza, Sparkle-icious, Glow Up Already, Bring on the Bling, Simmer & Shimmer, Show It & Glow It

Let Me Entertain You, The Show Must Go On, Rising Star, Ali's Big Break, Tease-y Does It, Take the Stage

After buying all the Burlesques, I went to go look at this "dusty" (a really old beauty supply or nail salon that carries old, dusty, and sometimes HTF polishes) that someone told me about. The result- great success! :)

Swing Time, Crimson King, Illumination, Rainbow Mix, Deep Emerald to Penny Copper

I totally failed to capture the amazing duo/multi chromes in all of the Optic Lusion polishes... I wore Swing Time yesterday and it was amazing. Pics soon!

Cool Cucumber, At Your Quebec and Call, Sew Psyched

I love Orly's old bottles... they have .75 fl oz of polish rather than the standard .5. However, the bottle is too tall to fit in my polish racks :(

With the exception of Sew Psyched, all the polishes from the dusty are full of hazardous chemicals, which means they have an amazing thin and just perfect application. If you don't mind the smell. Which I don't... so it's a win-win situation!


it's fall!

It may be fall, but here in CA the weather has been so hot... LA had around 113F, while here in San Jose it was around 100F. Ugh! But thankfully, the weather is going back to normal fall temperatures... it feels so wrong to wear fall colors on my nails when it still feels like summer!

Here are the fall inspired nails I've been wearing lately.

Orly Space Cadet
I've been drooling over Orly's Cosmix collection ever since the press release came out. My beauty supply never got them, and all the Sally's I went to were always sold out of the good colors. I got Space Cadet through a swap. I wish my nails were longer... my nubs don't justify this color haha. This was 3 coats.

OPI Cuckoo For This Color
This shocked me! I liked it so much more than I expected to. The color is STUNNING and was surprisingly flattering on my lobster hands. This was 2 coats, with an impeccable formula. What's there not to love?

Zoya Cheryl
Now this polish really looks like fall! I love this color. It's so woodsy and glowy and warm... This too had a perfect formula. 2 coats.

I planted some new flowers last weekend, so here's some spam :)
