Revlon Minted !

This is my FIRST mint green least that I can remember since I still havent tried out essie mint candy apple. I quite love it :)


2 coats. Kind of goop-ish application and could have used a third coat. BUT so beautiful, so I'll forgive the formulas slight let down. It probably wouldnt be so bad for someone more experience then me.

I'm waiting with baited breath for my Zoyas to arrive! They shipped from Ohio and I live in PA so I think it shouldn't been so long until they get here! I've already filled my cart up again...I think I'll buy one of those Visa gift cards so I dont have to bug my parents .

Hope you're all having a great day :D

Oldy but a Goody- OPI Pompeii Purple

I pretty much got this solely because of the name because I take Latin and love all history especially from that time period. This was part of the Greek Isles Collection that came out I think in 2002, might have been 2001. So its been around for awhile now.


2 coats, in the rain :/ I wish I had a sun picture which is where the polish really shines. You can see a little VNL so some people might want to use 3 coats, but in real life it doesn't show so much.


Also not really a purple haha, more of a magenta type color. I would really recommend this to anyone who likes these types of colors...the shimmer in it is gorgeous and in the sun has a faint blue flash.

<3 LOVE!

Must Have Zoya Polishes???

Hey all! My camera is unfortunately with my mom who is away right now so I couldn't get pictures of Ski Teal We Drop for you :( But when she gets back I'll put up Pompeii Purple which I have on now (spoiler alert: its gorgeous!) '


I'm placing my first order from Zoya. Here is what I'm getting so far:

+some color spoons

Woah, just realized they all sound russian-y haha. I wanted to quickly ask what your favorite Zoya shades are that you would recommend because I probably wont order again for a long time because ordering online is always a PITA since I have no credit card.

Thats about it yeah must have zoya shades?

I appreciate it so much guys :)

P.S. I'm nearing 50 followers at which point I'll have a little giveaway..nothing huge but if you're not officially "following" yet you may want to *hint hint* LOL because I will probably giving people who followed me before the giveaway an extra entry :)


My stomach was making the rumblies....that only hands would satisfy.

hahaha thought I'd share :)

OPI Dulce de Leche

OPI pretty much owns me. I thought I should give some justification as to why thats mostly the brand on this blog...yeah I dont know but OPI is my favorite brand with good brush, formula and colors that work for me.

ALSO, oddly enough, OPI is the easiest brand for me to attain. Yeah, crazy I know haha. But yeah my Sally's for CG and Orly and such is further away from my house than Ulta is and I refuse to pay Ulta's 6.50 for china glaze when sally's has it for 4.50.

anyway haha, here is OPI's Dulce De Leche:

2 coats. You can see some chips, but I was wearing this for forever.


These are really color accurate I'd say.

Lauren Conrad has been quoted saying this was her favorite nude or something and I can see why! It only took 2 super easy coats and dry time was pretty good. I would describe it as light brown with just a touch of pink. For sure my go to nude color. Love it!!

Melon of Troy didn't go so well haha...had MAJOR bubbling which I couldnt bare to look at haha so off it went. I cant say for sure if it was the polish because I pretty much did the opposite of everything heard to prevent bubbling. LOL heres how it went:

Me: "La la la, painting my nails, painting my nails, painting my nails hey hey hey hey. Oh, I think I'll do thick coats 'cause this looks pretty sheer."

And then......DUN DUN DUN DUN!!

Windows open, breeze coming through and three fans on. Whoops.

I dont know if its true but I heard having thick coats and then fans/windy-ness can cause/make it worse.

Hope you're all having a lovely day :)

Orly Rage (literally!)

Sorry about being MIA for the past weekish. First week of school. 'Nuff said. I've being taking pictures of my nails still so I'm creating a backlog sort of thing so that I can already have pictures on my computer ready to go whenever I feel like posting :D

I wore Orly Rage for the first few days:

1 coat! And great dry time also

Orly colors dont usually tempt me, I usually have something similar to all the colors they release. But I own nothing like Rage! I love it!! And I am a fan of the rubber grippy handle, makes it very easy to use.

Also I sneaked into Ulta and kind of broke my no buy. But I needed more nail envy so I got that and picked up OPI melon of troy, a long time lemming.

Got free opi nail remover stuff with the nail envy.

And now for the "literal" rage. a rant on my local ulta. I'M SO PISSED!!

I also went to pick up an Urban Decay Naked palette. I called that morning to make sure they had them in stock, and they said yes, but they were going fast so would I like to reserve one. Of course, I said yes and they told me they would hold it until I got there.

I get there and ask about it. The girl behind the counter (BTW, the girls who work at my Ulta are total airheads) is looking everywhere for it and finally asks the manager.

Her response? "Oh, we gave that to another customer. But you can check again next week to see if we have them in stock again. "

GARRRRRRRRRRRAHHHH! She didn't even apologize. And Ulta is kind of a far drive so I cant just pop in whenever. I freaking hate Ulta...but I dont. I love all their products and its the only nearby place I can get stuff like OPI and Urban Decay ect ect, but the workers are always SO frustrating and I leave annoyed like every time.

SIGH. thanks for listening.

Hope you guys are having a great week though :)
