Twinsie Tuesday: Biggest Splurge

Hey friends, happy Tuesday! I have some great news! By the end of the month, my husband will have a new career path! This has been the big chaotic thing that has consumed all of our lives for the past few weeks. It is definitely a good thing, but my amazing hubby had to put himself through a lot of stress to get here. I will never be able to express my complete gratitude for all his hard work and dedication.

Okay, enough sap and back to today's post, lol. This week's Twinsie Tuesday theme is our biggest polish splurge. I know some of you may be able to guess what it is before you see the pictures. Out of all the higher end polish lines, I have a special place in my heart for Rescue Beauty Lounge. When I first started blogging Ji had just released the GOMM collection and I was immediately hooked. Nail polish inspired by one of my favorite artists?!?! And the colors were stunning and unlike anything I had seen from a nail polish brand. I vowed I would one day own all of those beautiful little bottles. Two years later and I own all but two. I sadly missed out on Poppy and Jack, but Ghost, Faraway, Bella, Abi and Santa Fe are sitting quite comfortably in my helmer.

Katarina Naturals Nail Polish Remover Review

Hey y'all! I am still all over the place, it seems, and am trying so hard to get back to blogging on a regular schedule. It feels like it has been forever since I have had a normal routine and I do not adjust well to change. But I am really going to focus this week and post like crazy for you guys and have lots of fun stuff for you all to check out. 

So, in that spirit, today I have a little something different to share with you guys! Nail polish remover is an obvious tool for anyone who (even sporadically) paints their nails. It's pretty much a stagnant market, so I was super excited to have the opportunity to try out this new product!

Color Trends For Fall 2014

Hello friends! I didn't forget about you, I promise. I know posting has been sporadic lately and I do apologize. My personal and family life has taken a huge twist this month and it seems to have eaten up all of my blogging mojo. Despite all the changes that are taking place being positive ones, transitioning through everything has been a bit overwhelming and I am definitely feeling it! But I am eager to get back in the swing of things with new fall colors and some really fun stuff to show you all.

This past Tuesday, was the first day of fall and I couldn't be happier with the seasonal change! The fall collections are so good this year! If you are a regular reader, you know that I usually am not a fan of fall and winter collections, they are usually too dark and drab for my taste. Something about the color palette this year has really won me over and I am loving these seasonal hues.

Pacifica Red Red Wine

Hey all! Today I have a polish from the beauty brand Pacifica. I have used their products a few times, and have enjoyed the ones I own. I received one of the new nail polishes in my September Ipsy bag and decided to post it up on the blog. 

Side note - I have had my Ipsy subscription for about 6 months now, and I love it. If you are thinking about joining I highly recommend it. I am always really happy with my bags and am able to use at least half of the stuff in it.

Twinsie Tuesday: Accent Nail

Hey all! So I wasn't sure if I was going to make this post today. I have been in a major slump, creatively, and have had nada for inspiration. I had such lofty goals for doing a gradient stamped mani for the Accent Nail theme this week, but when I sat down to do it, all motivation left me. i have been in a rare mood for fall colors (so rare that it has never happened before!) and I decided to do a little fall themed glitter gradient accent nail instead. Not very creative, but it still turned out super pretty!

Takko Lacquer Aphrodisiac

Hello friends! How was your weekend? We had a really nice one, after a glorious cold front blew in Friday night, the weather was fantastic - and for Texas in September, a cold front is a big deal. Yesterday we took the girlie to play Putt Putt for the first time. It was a blast, and no body won! We forgot to take score after the third hole, oops!

Today, I have one last beauty from Takko Lacquer to show you. This one is a previously released polish, but Sheryl threw it in along with the new colors.

Twinsie Tuesday: Summer To Fall Transition

Hi friends! Holy crap, it's September! My kiddo started back to school today, and I am pretty much a hot mess. Time is just flying by waaay too fast for my taste, and this year feels like warp speed. Since it is the first Tuesday of September and the first day of fall is just a few weeks away (the 23rd to be exact), we are going with transitional shades for this week's theme!

When talking about colors that walks the line between summer and fall, I immediately think of teal and peach tones. And since I have been gravitating more towards peach this year, that was the color I went with.
