Literary Lacquers The Ocean at the End of the Lane Trio

Press Sample

Hello! I had a busy day today so I apologize for the late night post! I wanted to share the new Literary Lacquers trio that will be part of the brand's Grand Re-Opening. I'm kind of disappointed in myself that I haven't tried Literary Lacquers until now. I mean....I have two degrees in Literature and teach it. Shame on me! Well this trio is inspired by Neil Gaiman's The Ocean at the End of the Lane. I actually have this book waiting on my bookshelf! I absolutely loved reading Coraline  and listening to him speak, so I don't know what I'm waiting for!

Zoya Wanderlust Comparisons

Before I stash away the Zoya Wanderlust collection and focus on other summer collections, I wanted to share a few comparisons in this heavy pink collection. When Zoya releases so many colors, it's easy to say hmmmm, isn't that like this one? Well, I've done what I think are the closest colors so let's see who is a dupe!

Target June 2017 Beauty Boxes

Nothing to Disclose

Here's something a little different! I do enjoy a sub box every now and then but don't really like committing every month. I end up hoarding samples and toss them. I like Target boxes because I can see what's in them and pick and choose. I've skipped them for a while now, but grabbed June's boxes. Remember when these used to be free but then only included samples and coupons?! While these may not be available anymore, I thought I would share since every month, there's a new box (usually first Monday of each month).

5th Blogging Anniversary: Neon Tie Dye Birthday Nail Art

Whoa whoa whoa. Calm your horses. It's my fifth blogging birthday, so I appreciate the balloons and confetti, but save some for next year :-P. Ok all, seriously. I can't bellieve it's been five years since I started this little blog! My first post was my birthday manicure and I've been keeping that tradition ever since! My birthday was 6 days ago, but it's a nice tradition. As usual, I was in a neon mood, so I went with tie dye!

Inspired by a Tissue Box? Abstract Dots and Floral Nail Art with KBShimmer

Partial Press Sample

I took yesterday off as I was enjoying my birthday! My boyfriend surprised me with a mini trip to Atlantic City. We couldn't go far as I have another trip in just a few days (ack on Friday!). I'm actually still in Atlantic City, and wore this mani last week. So I think it's official--this might be the weirdest place I've found nail art inspiration: a tissue box!
