Monday Manicure

My insane 4th of July nails:

OPI Coca Cola Red
Sinful Colors White Striper
Sinful Colors Endless Blue
Wet & Wild The Star of the Show

Wore it for about three days before it drove me nuts and I removed it.


Monday Manicure

After Christmas I bought my very first Illamasqua polishes and the formula is DIVINE. Now, if only they would come out with colors that I don’t already have…

Then I saw something about the I’mPerfection collection, and caught a glimpse of those polishes. Deborah Lippmann is coming out with some similar, but her stuff is a little more expensive, so I thought I’d order a couple of the Illamasquas from Sephora. When I was on the Sephora website, I clicked “find in store” and LO they had arrived at the store by my office.

And I ran on down after work to buy myself a little Valentine’s Day treat.

DSC04602That would be colors Fragile and Mottle. Mottle looks like mint chocolate chip ice cream… which is pretty much why I bought it.


The formula is nice. I could have done with just two coats, but this is three (and no clean up, apparently! hah) and I probably should not have taken pictures at 10 pm but… whatever.

Also for Valentine’s I decided to splurge and buy myself a pair of earrings that look just like the Triforce from the Legend of Zelda video games:

DSC04605When I saw those at Target, I thought they were pretty funny, and even though I try not to buy myself jewelry, I ultimately couldn’t resist. I’ll probably take the dangles off from the middle portion, I haven’t decided yet.

I should probably beat Twilight Princess, shouldn't I? And then start Skyward Sword. Hmm. Losing video game cred, I think.

Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream, my very favorite (from a couple weeks ago):

Currently wearing Deborah Lippmann's Swagga Like Us, gold/green duochrome similar to OPI Just Spotted the Lizard and Chanel Peridot. 

I have not yet purchased any nail polishes for the month of September. (Say what?!?! lol) Buuuut, I am waiting for the L'Oreal Project Runway collection to appear, as well as the China Glaze Halloween collection. Then we'll talk.
