Essie- Exotic Liras

Quick post on my lunch break about this little beauty I picked up last weekend. I found it T Marshalls for only $3.99! They had about 6 other cord but this really spoke to me. I don't have any dark pinks and I can not find CH's Wicked Sweet anywhere anymore, this will serve as a nice substitute. Essie.com desires this as a "deeply decadent fuchsia" and that it is. The formula is so nice and none streaky too. I wanted to try a layer of CG Lush and Luxe and it came out very nice. L & L is one of those chameleon flakies that adapts to different shades. I kinda feel rich with such a beautiful color and the layering of the gold.

This is so cool. Add yours and spread it:)

Sally Hansen Salon Effects-Headbanger

Hope you guys had a good Monday. Heaven knows I did not want to go back to work today. I did stop by Target yesterday and they had the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Avril Levigne line on clearance. I've really wanted these but didn't want to the pay the price. I guess mainly because of her. ( I still can't see her as someone's mother. Totally weird) Anyways! I picked up Headbanger and another I can't remember the name of. I do love these nail strips . Always cool colors and they stay pretty good. Only drawback is that they don't have a good selection of sizes. Granted I'm wearing these over my oh so great glue on nails but even on my natural nails, it's hard to get the right size. Where it showed white I just used a discarded piece of nail strip and tried to blend it in. If you find them, grab them. So cute and commercial punklol. Headbanger has the perfect mix of pink girly sparkle and rock.

Sinful Colors Haul

Oh Vey!! I don't get myself sometimes. I'm trying to get rid of a ton of polish then I turn around, and buy more. Yikes. What a vicious cycle.

I just got back from Walgreens, full back in hand. I had no intention of getting as many as I did. I purchased 7, got in my car to leave , then went went back in and bought 5 more. They did have a good selection. My Walgreens is usually packed with promo displays along with end cap bins and the normal display case. My only problem was making the darn decision on what to get. I mainly picked up colors for stamping. I don't know if it's me, the plates or the polish, but my stamps never come out as nice as others. So hopefully they will work. The .99 sale is a great chance to stock up, try out new colors or even start picking up Christmas stocking stuffers or little gifts for girlfriends. I would get there as soon as possible to make sure you get your colors. I did check the Walgreens website last night and the sale had already started. Most colored were sold out too. Hope you all have a happy Sunday! ( I can't wait for tomorrow for news about Cosmoprof!)

Updated Blog Sale page

Just posted a bunch of polishes. prices between .50  and $1.50. Mostly Wet n' Wild. I have plenty left of other drugstore brands to post, but I'll save that for later. All would be great for new additions or to franken with:)

Sally Hansen- Loves Me Not

Hope everyone had/ is having a great Saturday. Today it was quite dreary out so I did a darker, moody color. I had picked this up some time ago at Bed, Bath and Beyond ( I still forgot that they carry many beauty brands) Loves Me Not is from the Sally Hansen complete salon manicure line. It was a special LE release from the Spring 2012 Prabal Gurung's runway collection. As soon as I saw it, I had to have it. No way I could turn down a purple polish. It's like my cryptinite! Throw in a magical, beautiful duo chrome sparkles, and it's done. The sparkles range from gold, red, pink and blue. The base is a rich dark plum purple. Just really a beautiful color. It was very hard for me to photo though. Seeing it is LE, try to track it down. Bed, Bath and Beyond is the only place I saw it. Have a great Sunday!

Spoiled- Jail bait

I wouldn't normally pick up a neon orange but for the $1.99 price tag and once I saw the name, I needed it! I expected it to be a thick cream, but turns out to be sheer. I have 4 coats on and you can still my white tips though it. I'm really pleases with the Spoiled line. So many choices with nifty names at a great price. Biggest draw back is that it's only at CVS. But don't worry if you don't have a CVS, you can still order online. Jailbait a perfect sitting by pool and relaxing color. It also glows pretty cool in black light. I noticed this at the bowling the other day.

really great sales going on now!

Hello hello! Wanted to give you guys a heads up on some really great deals going on now. If your like me and working a VERY tight budget, you don't have a lot of extra spending cash. So these deals are really a amazing way to stretch that beauty buck a little further:)

-Cherry Culture- pretty nice clearance sale. BUT! CC will stop carrying Sinful Colors.:( I know a lot of people who do not have access to the brand in their area and order most of their colors from here. Prices are from .50-1.25

-Sally Beauty- This weekend , in stores, Sally is taking a extra 50% off all red line items. Most stores have CG Hunger Games, Prismatic,and Metro for about $1.25. Orly colors for $2 and Finger Paints (not sure the price but I'm sure its cheap)

-Sephora- OMG! so many cool things on clearance. But the link takes you the polish clearance. Kat Von D and Nails Inc are the big winners for me. How Often can you find nails Inc. for $5??

Coming soon----

Walgreens will have all Sinful Colors polishes on sale for .99 starting Sunday July, 22. Amazing! I always miss this sale, but I will make sure to get there early and grab a few of the new releases before they are gone.

Wet n' Wild- Ebony Hates Chris

I love, love, love this black. So affordable, you can find it everywhere and it really is the best black polish I have ever used. I wanted to zazz it up a bit so added some red beads to a finger on each side. But sadly as soon as I added the top coat some of the red bleed out and now it's silver. Either way, it still pops with the black. Please excuse my sad cuticles.

Pink Wednesday- CG QT

Boy oh boy am I glad it's Wednesday. Only for the pure reason inventory is over. Ahhhh, sleep I have missed you. It's not a hard thing, just long and tedious and everyone seems to act like they are the only one that is tired and act like babies. (more than usual) Anyways.....

I have a zazzy pink today. One of my favorites in my collection! QT from the beloved China Glaze OMG! collection. It's a great raspberry pink and has just a beautiful holo to it. I love this collection so much but I really don't want to use them to much in fear of running out and not being able to get it again. Another great thing about this line is that I noticed it has a really great dry time. My picture today really didnt pick up the amazing holo, but take my word for it, it's pretty stella.

It's almost 6 pm and I'm going to bed. Have a great night:)))

Manglaze- Cabron

This is a super short post! Doing inventory at my job this week and been a very trying 13 hours. Forcing yourself to go to sleep at 8pm to get up at 4am is no fun. Anyways, the loom and gloom of inventory caused me to pick up a dark color out of my stash. I love the Manglaze line. I only have two now, but I'm hoping to get my hands on more soon. (I really NEED to get Fatty's Got More Blood and Fuck Off &Dye.) They dry great and matte. But unlike many other matte polishes, in the sunlight they have a amazing holo type shimmer to them. Love it! Cabron is, to me, a super dark purple. According to Manglaze it's a "Kinda Darth Smurfple". gotta love the wording! I do wish it wasn't so pricing but you can visit their Facebook, and you get 10% by ordering though them. Usually they run $13, but with the Facebook discount turns out to be $11.82. PLUS! Cabron, Matte is Murder and Fuggen Ugly are only $5.99.  Last thing, they always have wicked ass art work too:)

Justin Bieber- One Time Lime

Happy Sunday guys. I wanted try out One Time Lime for awhile now after picking it up at Ulta a couple months back for super cheap on clearance. I think it was only $3.50. I am not a Bieber fan per se, but I do think he's a positive influence for the Tweens and well, I really, really, really love his Nicole by OPI nail polish line. The green is a nice rich green and the formula is nice and thick. You really only need 2 coats to get a nice solid shade. For some reason I wanted shatter too so I added black shatter from OPI. It's kinda a cool ghoulish lol.
If you find the JB line, I highly recommend picking it up. At one time TJ Maxx had duos for $7.99. Many of the Canadian released ones were there as well. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!!:)

Mini haul-Spolied, wet n wild, & Fergie

My Walgreens finally got in the new Fergie polishes. I'm still not to excited about the price tag though. $3.49 for WnW? Great price for decent polish but $1.99 should be the cap. Anyways, it's one reason why I only picked up one. Ended up grabbing the last bottle of Hollywood Walk of Fame. Multi star glitter, you can't go to wrong with that except the price tag. ( I'm just peeved about the new WnW prices). The Fergie line is pretty cool but I noticed two things. One bad, one good. Many colors seem like dupes of the Spolied line from WnW which are only $1.99. But, other colors seem to be dupes of higher end polishes which is nice if you missed out on a color or refuse to pay $12 a bottle. I'll revisit Fergie on another post though. I went across the street to CVS and picked up two Spolied colors. I needed something summery and fun so I ended up getting Jail Bait, a kickass neon orange and I Only Eat Salads, a mellow neon green ( if there's such a thing) . Also, all the .99 Wet n' Wild cosmetics are only .69 this week. What a deal! I only got one color in the Wild Shine line. I pretty much have the rest lol. A pretty med pink called Dreamy Poppy. Dreamy name huh?:) On a cosmetics note, I finally got the new Revlon Colorstay Whipped foundation. Picked up a sample a couple weeks back and really liked it. Decided to get buff this time. Sample only came in nude and was a bit to light. If you're a CVS card member, check your email. You should have a 20% off coupon. Don't forget, keep tour receipt! If you don't like the cosmetics you buy you can get your money back. If you lose it, you still get a store credit which is great compRed to other stores. Love you CVS.
