Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer Happy Birthday Trio

Connie of Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer recently had a birthday! And somehow, in this bizzaro world she gave us the gifts. I'm not sure how that works out, but I sure wasn't complaining. She released a limited edition birthday trio back in March, and I am glad to share these now that I am back to "work".

Baroness X Vulcan Blood

Sometimes Baroness X makes something, and its like she knows my soul, man. When I first applied Vulcan, it was one of those moments. It was magical and perfect...and I think time stood still. But I didn't want to waste The Precioussss. That is where Vulcan Blood swoops in to save the day. It isn't too shabby on its own either.

My Picks from KL Polish

KathleenLights, of YouTube fame, is kind of a big deal. I don't watch the channel (I'm old and its hard to relate) but I have a lot of internet friends who watch and love her channel. When she announced that she was releasing a nail polish collection in 2016, I had more than a few people messaging me about it. So, for science, I bought a couple.

Octopus Party Nail Lacquer + Great Lakes Lacquer | Mardi Gras 2017

Great Lakes Lacquer and Octopus Party Nail Lacquer teamed up for an amazing quartet to celebrate Mardi Gras 2017. Sadly, I missed being able to post this while it was still available to purchase...but I can't not share the pictures. These polishes are too good to miss.

Grace-Full Nail Polish Delicate Neutrals

Grace-Full Nail Polish is pretty damned amazing when it comes to neutrals. This brand has some of my very favorite soft, feminine holos ever. So when I saw that these were all neutrals...I almost died. Ok, not literally...but there was some childish hand-clapping. Scroll on, and you'll see why.

I Take It Back: Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water

A long time ago, on a blog far, far away...I posted a lukewarm review of the Koh Gen Do Cleansing Spa Water. I wasn't super familiar with spa/micellar waters, so I wasn't at all sure what I was doing. In my continuing fight against the beauty product clutter, I decided to try and make it work...if only to use it all up. And you know what? I was totally wrong.

Emily de Molly | January 2017

Emily de Molly can do no wrong, at least not as far as I am concerned. And while I know that you guys have all seen these polishes already, but I am still playing catch-up from my most epic of moves...so we get to see some old stuff! I am not complaining.

Laura Mercier Highlight 01 vs Wet 'n' Wild Reserve Your Cabana

Makeup is one of my favorite things. I love reading about it, looking at it, and wearing it. One of the most entertaining parts of makeup, for me, is the "dupe hunt". I love comparing similar products...and its even more fun if they are on opposite ends of the price spectrum. Today, I'm comparing two wonderful highlight products.

ELF Daily Brush Cleaner

One of the decidedly not glamorous parts of makeup is the cleanup. I hate it desperately. It is probably the reason that I have so many blending brushes. I tend to put off the cleaning until I absolutely have to...which makes the task longer...which makes me hate it more. It is a vicious circle. To keep things moderately tidy in between bathings, I use a handy spot cleaner. It helps put some space and time in between the deep cleanse.
