A celebration of red nail polish!

Hello, my lovelies!

I have something new for you today. Recently some friends of mine and I were talking about the red polish, OPI’s Smitten With Mittens (which for some reason, I always want to call it Smitten with Kittens). The conversation then evolved into one about red polish and how there are so many lovely ones. So I told them all to send me a pic or two of their favorite red and I would dedicate a post to red polish. And here it is!

Indie Review - Literary Lacquers!

Hello, my lovelies!

Today’s fabulousness is indie brand Literary Lacquers! Anyone who talks to me for about oh, 5 minutes, realizes in probably less than that I’m a big book nerd. HUGE. And I’m not referring to my height. I’m referring to my tendency to hideout for days on ends, surrounded by books, lost in other worlds, usually involving magic, fantasy, werewolves, witches and vampires, sometimes mysteries, and ignoring the real world. Even as a child, despite playing several sports and enjoying them, I frequently had my nose in a book. And because I inherited my father’s speed reading ability, my parents got many phone calls from irate teachers that I was reading in class. (You’d think that since I finished the assigned work this wouldn’t be a problem, but that’s another conversation).

But I digress. The point is, I love books. One room in my house is called the library and it’s devoted to books. My shelves are full and there are piles of books on the carpet. (Granted, one bookcase is dedicated to photos of family and friends, and I did surrender one bookcase to Mr. Enchanted when he moved in). There are books on the dining room table, in the entry way, the bedroom-everywhere.

Review: Tip Top Nails South Africa!

Hello, my lovelies!

Today I am reviewing yet another fabulous brand! This time we have Nail Addict by Tip Top! They sent me some gorgeous polishes and a fantastic cuticle oil to try out recently.

Tip Top has it nailed with the formulas. All of these were incredibly silky smooth and glided on without any trouble at all! All pictures are shown without top coat.

Zoya's Pixie Dust & Spring 2013! Collections!

Hello, my lovelies!

Zoya's new Spring 2013 collection has been announced! Captivating Claws has the full ad with pictures on her blog, but it looks like the standard spring pastels. I personally am not impressed. I don't like pastels and these are all re-releases of polishes that were designed previously for couture designers.These will be released January 2013.

Indie review: LynBDesigns!

Hello, my lovelies!

Today I have another fantastic indie to share! Today I’m featuring LynBDesigns! I caught these beauties on one of her $5 sales recently and had to share them with you. These are the first few polishes of what I expect to be many more! I've got lots of pics to show you, so get ready!

It's Rainbow Honey time!

Hello, my lovelies!

Today I have a perfect fall polish to show off (technically, it’s still fall for another week or so!) 

Today’s beauty is Rainbow Honey Hoof Wrassle. I laughed when I first heard the name. Having spent a fair chunk of my youth in the deep South, I find the term “wrassle” to be highly amusing. The color though, I swoon over. It’s orange, and gold, and coppery and just screams me. Warning, lots of pics!

Indie Review: Above The Curve!

Hello, my lovelies!

Today I have a new-to-me indie to show off, Above The Curve! I was tickled pink to be chosen as one of the bloggers to show off part of their new Narnia line! Yes, a Narnia line! 

But first,  want to tell you a little about Above The Curve, because they have an awesome cause behind their shop!

Indie Review: More Tipsy Turvy Nails!

Hello, my lovelies!

I hope you like the new clothes on the blog that I made. I decided for December it needed something festive and holiday themed. And while it might be December, today I’m showing off a couple of beautiful polishes from a Halloween collection!

These are from one of my favorite indie polish makers, Tipsy Turvy Nails

Black Friday Insanity, part 1!

Hello, my lovelies!

The Black Friday goodies are starting to roll in! Mr. Enchanted asked when the dump truck was arriving and where it would be unloading. Heh. I wasn’t that bad. Not quite. 

I did however, I am embarrassed to say, snatch up quite a few good deals. Yay for indie makers having Black Friday sales! And hen I say sales, I mean the awesome ones like 40% or more. Some I missed, either I was out running around, or stupid Facebook messed up my feed and I missed them. But I did want to share some of them, so this is part one. I was able to get a lot of new indie that I haven’t tried yet at great prices, so I’m really looking forward to trying them. Warning, lots of photos!

The Liebster Award!

I’ve been nomained for a Liebster Award! I was actually nominated for this back in the summer but I was so busy, I never got around to putting it up *hangs head in shame*, and I apologize to the lovely ladies who nominated me.

Indie Review: Jindie Nails Grinch!

Hello, my lovelies!

December has started and there are holiday polishes everywhere! I’m no exception, I’ve been sporting a particularly fun polish the last few days.

I won this a few weeks ago in a contest, and it was my introduction to Jindie Nails. It certainly won’t be my last Jindie polish! In addition to being a fun, funky polish, the application was simply lovely and I’ve had this on for five days now (practically a record for me but that’s how I busy I’ve been!) and I’ve had practically no chipping at all!!
