U-Neek Polish: Endometriosis Awareness


Hi all! We are nearing the end of the month already, can you believe it?! While everyone is readying for their weekend I'd like to show you all an awareness polish from U-Neek Polish. March is Endometriosis Awareness Month so I really wanted to get this reviewed and to share this information with you all before the month was officially over!

What is endometriosis?
"During monthly menstruation, the female body sheds the endometrium (uterine lining) in the process commonly known as a "period". In women and girls who have endometriosis, some of these menstrual fluids are retained in the body and abnormally implant in areas outside of the uterus. These implants, or nodules, eventually accumulate on the bladder, bowel, ovaries, cul de sac, and other nearby organs, leading to the development of adhesions, scarring and invasive nodules. This can cause symptoms that vary from painful periods, chronic pelvic pain, infertility, pain associated with intercourse and sexual activity to painful bowel movements, rectal pain and urinary pain or difficulty."

WingDust Collections: Day Dreamer (White Holo)


Tonight I have 1 of several new holographic polishes from Wing Dust Collections new spring line!
The sun has been quite fickle around these parts as of lately. It's kind of a game of tag that I've been playing with it! When it's out I rush to swatch a holo and just as soon as I am ready to photograph it hides! I swear the sun gods are getting a good chuckle from the whole fiasco! I did manage to get some decent sun this past Saturday, (right before it snowed about a foot!) and I really wanted to show this one to you all first, of all the holos I have to review for you, so I made sure I swatched this one before any others! Which turned out to be a good thing since I had someplace to go and didn't have time to swatch any others. 

L is For Louboutin

Purchased By Me
*nothing to disclose

It's Wednesday and you know what that means!! Another ABC Challenge post! Today is the letter L. When this challenge started, I had made out a list for what I wanted to do for each letter. Well I should say I TRIED to make a list, most of my letters have me at a loss, but L was one I knew right away! I have a slight obsession with shoes, not collecting them or wearing them, just looking at them! I use to be a big shoe freak, back in my club hopping days I could rock the highest heals in the worst conditions, rain, sleet, snow, thick sheets of ice, crazy mangled streets, you name it I could do it! (If any of you know what it's like to party on the Landing in Downtown St. Louis you know that even some of the most experienced heel wearing gals have trouble on those crazy cobblestone streets, but I was like a cat!) Then I started working longer hours at the hospital, wearing nothing but tennis shoes and flip flops and partying less. Eventually the deadened nerves in my well trained feet started to regenerate and heels quickly became a thing of the past. Now I just drool over all of the super sexy sky high beauties.Wishing I could manage to pull them off again without the period of torture it takes to grow accustom to them. So my inspiration for this weeks letter, as I'm sure you have guessed by now, is shoes. And not just any shoes but Christian Louboutin's! Über expensive and equally as amazing, known for having some super classy and also super blingie looks and always with the red soles. I only wish I had owned a pair in my crazy heel wearing days. Since I never did, I'll settle for making my stilettos into Louboutin's instead!

BG Cosmetics: LSD & Methematician


Second post today!! Aren't you all proud of me? LOL I decided to recycle my manis from my previous post of the day, I just wanted to put those gorgeous Hard Candy's to good use! These next 2 polishes are from BG Cosmetics' Party Like a Rockstar collection.

XOXO Nails: He's Just Not Into You & Dottie


I know many of you have seen  or heard about the new FTC Guidelines that have had bloggers changing their formats, if not you can find the guidelines by looking them up on google. I have always disclosed if a product was provided to me but I'm guessing it wasn't black and white enough so I have updated my "Disclosure Tab" and will be linking it in each post. After hours of struggle, and a long string of obscenities that made my husband retreat in fear, I have decided not to do the "disclosure buttons" that many bloggers are including on their pages. I will admit that am in no way a computer nerd but I am usually capable of doing some small/simple things when it comes to my blog,  apparently this task was just beyond my realm. Therefore in the interest of preserving my sanity and my marriage I have opted to just use a basic link. So, again, at the top and bottom of my posts there will be a link to my disclosure page...Press Sample, Purchased By Me, Sponsored Post and /or Affiliate Post. 
Also while I'm on the subject of links, I don't know if any of my regular readers have noticed, but I have been linking previous posts, collections, labels, etc., in my posts. So if you see a a group of words that are a different color, click it! It will direct you to posts you may have missed in the past! 

Ok! Now that that mumbo jumbo is out of the way I have 2 of 5 polishes from XOXO Nails' Naked Truth Collection to show you all today.

Cameo Colours Lacquers: Hathor & Venus

*Free product for review


It's still snowing here in  little ol' East Alton. I'm told we should expect about a foot of snow by the time its all over. We already have about 8 inches and it's showing no sign of stopping. I guess Mother Nature missed the memo that it's now spring! The good news is that yesterday, before it got all gloomy and snowy, it was sunny and about 60 degrees so I managed to swatch a couple more polishes from Cameo Colours Lacquers Divine Collection!! Yay holos!! This is part 2 of a 3 part review, you can see part 1 here, where I have Athena and Brighid featured.

Me.Lissa Nail Lacquer: Green Light On The Dock, Ain't No Party Like A Gatsby Party & Beautiful Little Fool

*Free product for review

Tonight I am going to show you some glitter polishes from a very new Indie brand that opened shop up in January. Here is a little background on Melissa, the creator of Me.Lissa Nail Lacquer...

"As a science major and pre-med student, there isn't much room for creativity during my day job. I love nail polish, and have always used it as my creative outlet. I started out doing some nail art and then moved on to some small frankening experiments. Now I decided to launch my own brand as a creative escape in between school and work. I named it Me.Lissa because I really want it to represent the color combinations I love and find fun to wear.

The following polishes are from Me.Lissa's Gatsby collection and are LE so when they are gone they are gone for good! All Me.Lissa Lacquers are 3 Free.

Anyway, today I have a couple of brand new beauties from Wing Dust Collections. I had originally tried to get some swatches done of a couple of Stephanie's new holos but as soon as I got finished polishing the sun went away! Then once I removed it, the sun reappeared! Stupid sun! So I picked these 2 beauties!

ABC Challenge: K is for Kids Choice!

Welcome to another day in Kimber's ABC Challenge. The letter K had me a little stumped, I wanted to do some art but I had no idea what to do that would start with the letter K. So I left it up to my niece and nephew, making this a Kid's Choice mani. They picked red so to take the Kid's Choice theme a little further I let one of the kiddos actually do my mani from start to finish! Yes I cheated. I did not create this mani. They are my nails though so it still counts, right? Please be nice to the art work, my 9 year old niece did an excellent job creating her version of ladybugs on my nails! 
*I want to note that the products we used in this mani were provided to me from M•A•S•H Nails for review. I will have an actual full review on the color soon, the Nail Art Pen I reviewed previously in a post that can be found here. Ok now the art...

She even did the clean up too! She's a natural!!

Delightful Lacquers: Tropical & Ruby Slippers

I have a really late post for you all tonight! I had planned on having this up earlier but the kiddies and I had a long day. We did a little shopping, visited the Easter Bunny, went to the playground and then came home to do a little yard work. Now I want to tell you how very evil I am! This yard work was some trickery on my part. I was trying to keep the kids occupied but out of the house, since my husband is working 3rd shift this week and has been feeling under the weather.So I told them we could go outside and they could play. They were getting bored of just running around so I came up with a "contest". I told them whoever could make the  biggest pile of sticks in 10 minutes would get some ice cream. Well an hour later we had all of the fallen branches and sticks gathered up into two great big piles, from and back yard! LOL I even have them roped in for a leaf pile contest tomorrow!! Maybe I could even get my garage cleaned out!!! Yes I know, I'm evil! Anyway, that's why this post is sooooooo late. Ok, enough yammering, I'll get to the polish!

TIOT: Hard Candy Crush On Caribbean

Just a fast Try It On Tuesday post for you all today, while I have the little ones being occupied by playing with the doll house. (Actually my nephew is more destroying it while my niece tries to get him to "play right"! LOL) Last week on my TIOT I used one of the Itzy Glitzy Hard Candy polishes, so I figured I would try out the one Crushed Chrome I picked up.

XOXO Nails: Don't Play Me

Happy Monday everyone! Are you all recovering well from your weekend? I have my niece and nephew all week because they are on spring break and I am the only one who doesn't have to work. I don't know how often I will get to polish with them here but I will try to have a post up daily. 
I am doing a solo post today since this polish is the only one that doesn't belong in the Naked Truth collection, which I will have reviewed soon.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

A few weeks ago my lovely niece, Nani, asked me if I was planning on doing any St Patrick's Day nails. I normally plan an art mani out and then get so busy with my reviews I just end up sayin fudge it and scrap the whole idea. This time was different since Nani requested that I turn her concept into art on my nails. She is probably one of the most artistic people I will ever meet. This little girl, (young woman? Nah she's still my baby! LOL) can turn some of the most random pieces of scrap into a work of art. Paintings or jewelry, full outfits made of paper to building her own doll house from scratch, that the cat now sleeps in by the way, she is a true artist, in mind, eye and attitude  I only hope that as she grows up that creativity grows with her and she won't let adolescence take away that artistic side! So this mani is for my Nani Bear! (She's going to kill me for writing that!)

All the pretty colors I used!

Cameo Colours Lacquers: Athena & Brighid

Tonight I have 2 of 6 colors from Cameo Colours Lacquers new Divine Collection that just released today. I was planning on swatching all 6 for you all but the sun has not been very cooperative lately. This morning I had a butt ton of sunshine and just as soon as I get outside to photograph the first polish I realize it was overcast sunshine. Then after the second one the sun ran away completely. I waited to see if it would come back out but I had no such luck. So the rest will follow as soon as I can get some sun!

I created this look using M•A•S•H nail polish in LimeStrawberry and Nail Art Pen in Black.

J is for Julep

Another week in Kimber's ABC challenge and I'm feeling burnt out...on creativity, on polish, on the blog, so this mani turned out terrible. It didn't come out the way I had pictured it in my mind. It should be J is for JUNK. I'm not really feeling it so I'm just gonna give you the pictures and be done with this week, let's move on to K...even though I have no idea what to do for K. Hopefully but then I can pull out of this funk! I think it's due to the fact that my house is still in disarray from the repairs and whatnot.
Anyway...here it is.

Shenae, Simone, Teri

Delightful Lacquers "Coastal Sands"

My ABC post should be up shortly...I hope. LOL Right now I have a new to me Indie to show you, Delightful Lacquers! Truth be told I am always a little leery of purchasing newer Indie names, for fear that they are of poor quality. I have heard these same fears expressed by some of my readers as well. So when a newer one asks for me to review it's all ways nice so that way I can help you all make a decision. I have learned that even the biggest names can have terrible quality and some smaller Indies, some virtually unheard of, can be great and beautiful gems that really deserve more attention. I think that Delightful Lacquers may actually be one of those gems!

TIOT: Hard Candy Little Hottie & WindDust Dancing Queen

Just a quick post, I know it's a late one but I wanted to try out one of my new Itzy Glitzy Hard Candy polishes! So why not use one for my TIOT, yes I know it's not Tuesday anymore,

*EDIT* Frankenstain Nail Polish: Venus In The Sea, Kassandra & Sleep Deprived

Today's TIOT post is going to be a late one. I am going to try to have double posts up on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for a little while. I have a TON of reviews to get done and with all the extra things going on around the house and my TIOT and ABC posts taking those days away I am having a hard time keeping up. Today I have the final 3 of my  Frankenstain Nail Polish reviews.

Coco Allure: Like, Totally Pink *Edited*

Hey all! Happy Saturday! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend so far. I am going to go do some camera browsing in just a little bit, wish me luck! I really love my camera but I have been having some issues with it, mostly that it keeps powering off at random or not wanting to power on at all some times. I'm not sure if it's worth having it repaired or even having it looked at, I think that's $40 alone, since my extended warranty is expired. I hate camera shopping, it's such a hassle! I especially hate the restocking fee, if I decide I don't like the camera and they don't have one I want. I use to work customer service for a rather large electronics store (that is no longer around), so I understand the ins and outs of the return/exchange policies. While a understand why there was a need for restocking fee's, I just hate that some shystie people who wish to "rent" a camera for a trip or special occasion had to ruin everything for the actual consumer who is just looking for the perfect item! Ok, I'm done ranting now. LOL  On to the polish!

I is for Illamasqua Phallic

Good morning...night...whatever it is!! Welcome to another day in Kimber's ABC Challenge! I am bringing my day to an end and I wanted to hurry up and get this post up, so I won't be doing all my normal yammering, I'm just going to get to it. I want to apologize now for the less than stellar pictures, I had a hell of a time trying to photograph this one.

TIOT: Nails Inc. Leather Effect "Noho"

Hello my polished pals! Welcome to another Try It On Tuesday! I am trying to keep up this week, it felt weird missing last weeks TIOT post. A couple of weeks ago I was at the mall with my hubs and we were just wandering around aimlessly and he goes "Hey! Did you know there was a Sephora here?" I stopped dead in my tracks and I think my eyeballs may have popped out of my head! 


To think I have been passing it by all this time because I never go into JC Penny's! While we were there I came across the Nails Inc. Leather Effects Collection which comes in 3 shades, black "Noho", tan "Soho Mews" and burgundy "Shoreditch Lane". 

M•A•S•H Nails "Fruit Punch" Scented Polish & Nail Art Pens Review

Yet another late post! I had a bust day today so I am just now getting a chance to post this for you all. I was contacted a week or so ago by M•A•S•H Nails to see if I would be interested in reviewing something, of course I said yes! When I received my package I was surprised at all the cool goodies that were in it! I will be honest, when I think of M•A•S•H I think of stamp plates. I actually own quite a few of their plates, but I kinda suck at stamping, so when they sent me scented polish, matte top coat, fimo slices, and nail art pens I was relieved and even more excited to review for them! 

All of the goodies I will have reviewed for you in future posts.

Laquerlicious "Day At The Beach" Review & Swatches

Hello all! Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far. I have a real quick review post here for you all, before I get into all of my craziness for the weekend! I'll show you all on Monday exactly what I have going on with the house renovations this weekend! I also want to apologize for my lack of posting this week. I have been having a hard time keeping up not because I'm overwhelmed but I am just so tired lately. I don't know what the reason is, but I am so exhausted I feel like I could sleep for a week straight and on top of that I have been getting the WORST headaches ever. If it keeps up I guess I'm going to have to make a doctors appointment. Boo! Anyway, I am sorry and I will try to get back on a regular schedule. Now on to the polish!
