Weekend Mani

While attempting to clean the house and still manage to
 squeeze in some editing of upcoming Valentine's looks, 
I thought I'd share my weekend main with you

This design was created by Miss80Million,
and I love it so much, this is probably my 3rd or 4th time wearing it. 
I'm always a fan of abstract designs and I LOVE the color combination.

You can check out her awesome YouTube channel
and her blog, here

and here

and be sure to tell her Dolly says HI!

Wet n are KILLING me!!

About every 2-3 days, I head out early in the morning, 
and canvas every 
Walgreen's CVS, Rite Aid, Duane Read 
that I can find within a 15 mile area
to see if I'll get lucky enough to find the new
Wet n Wild 8-pan shadow palettes

Not only have I not found them yet, which is frustrating in itself, 
but each store I go into I manage to 
find new little gems of polish just calling to me,

It's like sending an alcoholic to October fest!
Like a fat kid in a bakery!
Ahhhhhh I can't take it!!
These little bottles of love call to me, taunt me!
I've NO willpower what so ever!
But good lord, my wallet is empty and my shelves are over-flowing!

Wet n Wild, you are KILLING ME!!

This is what I ended up with on today's excursion 

Petites is a very nice brand with minimal color choices, 
but with that being said, the colors they DO have are just so pretty!

Fairy Pink is a blue-based Pink with a fine holo.
It's subtle, but with just enough kick to have to you drooling.
I'm really loving this.

Periwinkle, is just that. A classic periwinkle but this is a dusty, muted version of the shade. Another winner.

Fantastic, smooth application.
Periwinkle would have been fine with 1 coat, 
but I always go with 2.
Fairy Pink builds in intensity with every coat, so I say, 
go layer crazy with it!

These were purchased for $3.99 each at Rite Aid

These Wet n Wild MegaBlast colors are from their Spring collection, 
and this is actually the first time I've seen them in the store, 
so slowly but surely we are making progress here, WnW.

Sugar Coat, is the palest of Pink creams.
She needed 3 coats to get a true opaqueness out of it, 
but it's worth it.
Great for work, great for french mani's great for Spring & Summer, 
this color wil carry through it all, what more can you ask for?

Club Havana. Fitting name. 
When I look at it, I think of warm summer nights in Miami.
This Orange-based coral cream applied wonderfully in a single coat.

Tropicalia. This Pink-based coral is that classic fruit punch color, 
and one of my all time favorites for the summer on my toes.

While these bottles may be tiny,
the formula and color pack a big punch.
and who can resist the cuteness of these bottles?
Clearly I can't.

These were purchased for $1.99 each at CVS
