Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish System Grey Matters

Hi friends! Hope you all had a great weekend! The weather was gorgeous after a super rainy and cold week, so we took advantage and had a great time at the dog park. Well until we ended up covered in mud! But that's usually what happens when your small person goes after a rogue tennis ball and slips into a puddle, lol!

So if you follow me on FB (you totally should, btw) you may have seen a few pics from a five day wear test that I did with the new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Polish System. Let me preface by saying five whole days wearing the same color is sooooo hard! I maybe go two days with the same color. But I sacrificed myself all in the name of beauty blogging!

Twinsie Tuesday: Fandom

Hey y'all! So today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is all about fandom - otherwise known as being obsessive over something like a book/tv show/movie/food/comic/musician. This was such a hard theme for me because I have so many things that I obsessively love! To narrow it down was so brutal for me, lol! When it came time to put my mani together, I went through my stash and grabbed a polish inspired by one of my many loves - Dr. Who. 

"I am the Bad Wolf. I create myself. I take the words, I scatter them in time and space. A message to lead myself here." - Rose Tyler after absorbing the time vortex inside the TARDIS and transforming into the Bad Wolf entity.

KBShimmer Happily Ever Aster

Hi friends, a very happy Monday to you all! Last year, I really slacked off on my swatch posts. Lest than half the polish I got ended up here on my blog. So as part of my "blogger resolutions" I am trying to be more active with my swatch posts and putting more content up.

I am starting with my untrieds from the holidays. I received an excellent gift package full of KBShimmer goodies from a Secret Santa swap the Twinsies had this year. Along with some nail/skin care goodies (omg the KBShimmer scrub is amazing!) I got two polish from the spring 2014 collection that were on my wish list. So today I have swatched Happily Ever Aster!

Digital Nails Serenity

Hey y’all! Happy Wednesday! I have more indie polish goodies to share today. Truth be told, I have been sitting on this beauty for a long time.  But this time I actually remembering to take photos after I used it! I got this several months ago at an Austin nail meet up from Raph - the owner/creator genius behind Digital Nails. She is really one of the sweetest, coolest people and we both share a deep love for all things nerdy. Her polish is not only beautiful, but heavily inspired by geeky/nerdy culture - Serenity is named after the ship in the cult fav show Firefly.

Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired By Your Shoes

Hi y’all! How is your week going? Since it is Tuesday, I have this week’s Twinsie post. We are doing manis inspired by our shoes. I am not a shoe person to be honest. I would live in flip flops if I could, lol! But since it is winter, I have stored them in favor of some very sensible, comfy canvas flats from target. I am pretty sure this mani is way more fashionable than they are, lol!

Indigo Bananas Swatch Spam

Hi friends! How was your weekend? It was so frickin cold and wet the whole time! I don't mind cold weather, but when it is cold and rainy, I get whiny, lol!

Today I have some swatches from the indie brand, Indigo Bananas! This is a long post with a lot of pictures, so be prepared! I selected four different polishes to swatch from the current offerings that, I think, best represent the brand. And not to spoil the post or anything, they are all really great!

Twinsie Tuesday: Pond Mani

Hello guys and gals! Welcome to the first Tuesday of the new year! The Twinsies took a break over the holidays, but we are back for our weekly themed posts. And we even have new members! Welcome Amanda (from  Fashion Footing), Beckie (from Polished by Beckie ) and Savannah (from Addicted to Polish)! I am super excited to get to know you girls and see your awesome posts every week!

This week’s theme is a pond mani - a design layered in between jelly polish so that it appears to be floating.  This is a fairly new technique in the nail world and I was super excited to try it out!

2014 Top Ten and Year In Review

 Happy frickin' New Year!!! I am tired, grumpy and a wee bit hung over, but I couldn't start 2015 properly without doing my annual recap post! This is my third year to do it, and it is still one of my favorite things to post. I have been  working on it off and on through out December in order to have it done on time. It was a lot of fun going back through all the polish from this past year, and seeing what posts were the most read!
