Sephora by O.P.I Ruby Without a Cause

New $OPI's keep finding their way into my stash, this is one of them. Ruby Without a Cause is a new red - purple red shifting duochome. The bottle has a lot of teal but I caught none of that on my nails...

here is 2 coats,

look at that mega blue swirling in the bottle! I was expecting it on my nails so I was pretty disappoint. Still pretty though.


              Hope everyone keeps power through the storm if you're in it!  
I should probably go buy candles or something.

butter LONDON Toff, lippy & laquer duo

Today I have a Lippy & Laquer duo from BL :) I was after Toff for a while so I was thrilled to see it in both forms at my door. I've had these a while now, and worn them both a few times... this review is long overdue!

They look so close in the bottles! The lippy is definitely a bit more neutral but still very close to the polish.

butter LONDON describes Toff  -"A darker, dustier, brownish variation on a rose pink nail lacquer. Stop to smell them. The roses, not the toffs."

2 coats. Toff wanted to look different in all of my pics, but this is the most color accurate ^


Very creamy and opaque formula. Smelled something like delicious cake batter to me, very sweet. 

They have some really awesome new sets out for the holiday season! As well as some amazing new polishes. 
Check them out @

Essie Jelly Apple

Hi! Happy Sunday evening.. enjoying mine, Dexter and Homeland soon..and then Monday & Tuesday no classes. So far all I have to show for my weekend is some new swatches :) Wore Jelly Apple for the first time last week..HATE myself for having this on my untrieds for a year ++ ?! It's an awesome blue leaning bright RED jelly. I believe it is part of the core collection and ETF, if you don't have it. (Should be on larger retail displays) Shown here @ 2 coats..


I need MORE red jellys!! What are your favs?

CrowsToes Bone Daddy

Hi! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I am currently finishing up the set up of my second Helmer, doing some polish reorganizing & watching the Big Bang Theory. Super productive :) I really need to do some purging..maybe a blog sale in the future??

ALSO, just a note for my giveaway winner... Christie! Please check your email and get back to me, if I do not hear from you soon I will assume you aren't interested and I will randomly select a runner up. :(

Okay onto the polish - Today I am posting a new indie I got this week, CrowsToes Bone Daddy. It's a mix of different sized white hex and bar glitter with iridescent blue glowing microglitter in a grey jelly base. In love with it. I have it layered here over 4 coats of O.P.I My Pointe Exactly :)

Chanel - Frisson

Hi! Only one more day to enter my giveaway if you haven't, I'll place the link at the bottom.

Today I have Chanel Frisson, a soft sheer pink loaded with golden glass flecks. This is 4 coats, and VNL is still semi visible. I don't mind it though. I like this more @ 3 coats but I find I need an extra for pics with these sheer polishes. If you've been on the fence about this one....get it!

Barielle Berry Blue + Icing Epic Winning

   Hello! I want to say thanks to the new people who joined me :) If anyone would like me to check out their blog or anything, feel free to send me an email. Hope to see you stick around!

I had planned on swatching allll day today but it was totally gloomy and overcast :(  So that didn't work out. I really need a new camera and a lightbox asap. I keep forgetting it's about to start getting dark very early... the only crappy thing about the fall / winter. Anyway, here is something sparkly I clearly took on a much nicer day ages ago..

I started with Barielle Berry Blue.. I've seen some really nice swatches of this that look very jelly. It's definitely jelly-ish but mine was very thick and opaque.

Definitely needed some glitter!

Epic winning is full of holo and blue micro glitter.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway if you haven't! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
