O.P.I Goldeneye

       Hi! Long weekend all but over..goes so fast! I haven't picked up too many from the Bond collection...yet. Definitely needed Goldeneye though when I saw it at the grocery store the other day. (why grocery stores sell O.P.I and Sally's doesn't I will never understand. My Wegman's puts out collections quicker than Ulta sometimes lol) This was also my Thanksgiving mani but I'm not sure it was too festive. It's a golden microflakie and opaque in 3 coats for me :) It pays to be neat with these types, veryy difficult clean up. 


What were your picks from Bond? Just this, Skyfall & The Man With The Golden Gun for me so far but I need MORE!

butter LONDON - Two Fingered Salute

   Hi! Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a nice Turkey Day if you celebrate :) Today I have a BL lemming I killed recently - Two Fingered Salute.  It's a sagey green blue with coppery and pink flecks.. this must be really close to the Space Cadet franken (if you haven't seen that before it's white creme added to orly space cadet or one of it's dupes...comes out looking like this BL!) I kept wanting to try making. Now I don't have to I guess.  I don't post much about wear because I change my polish so frequently, but this I had on for 5 or 6 days and it wore amazingly well - just one teensy chip on one of my thumbs and barely any tip wear!

 This is 2 coats :

and for fun.. it matches my new fossil bag perrrrfectly! 
(bag isn't as blue as it is on my camera tho..kind of a fail)

Anyone black friday shopping?? I'd love to know what you got so I may live vicariously through you :)

O.P.I - DS Extravagance

  Hi! Happy almost weekend :) I am actually kind of dreading this weekend, I really need to start and complete some projects and papers and do some serious work. Sad face. Come unplug me from the internet! I need one of those scared straight criminals to come scream at me or much does that cost?

  Anyway, a happier time in my life was when I was wearing this. DS Extravagance. SO beautiful. Top 20. It's a deep berry with holo particles throughout. In the sun it is stunning...but I had to use flash for some photos. 2 coats:

lots of pics but yeah.. it's GOOD.

I found mine at Ulta recently, I believe the Designer Series retails for 12.50

Deborah Lippman for True Blood - Sookie Sookie set

Hi! Hope everyone had a nice weekend :) Today I have the Sookie Sookie set DL did for True Blood... I am a TB junkie so I had to have this (got the Let it Bleed set with the lipstick as well, but passed on the minis)! pic heavy post ahead.

Human Nature - a mortal putty taupe
Fairydust - ethereal shimmer

I really got this set for Fairydust - but Human Nature here turned out to be my favorite, it's an amazing neutral! 2 coats:

I'm not sure these two were meant to be layered together (Fairydust can be opaque on it's own!) but that is how I tried it, and I love them together. 1 coat of Fairydust here over Human Nature:

really gorgeous pink-golden duochrome shimmer, it has a nice wet look like a lip gloss.

Misa Bed of Roses

  Hi! Happy weekend. :)

  Today I have Bed of Roses from Misa, a gorgeous barbie pink jelly. It's a bit softer than it comes across in my pics. I used 4 coats here for opacity.

Halloween Blood Spatter!

Hope everyone had a nice Halloween! I think perhaps most of us who dealt with Sandy this weekend were a little distracted..hope you all and your loved ones got through it OK. I did fine outside of the city (never lost power!!) but we were lucky.

    Decided to do a blood spatter mani yesterday to be a little festive, I did the same thing last year and wearing it again made me realize how QUICKLY a year goes by. I'll be rocking this as long as it stays on.. makes me think of my favorite serial killer Dexter :)

used essie marshmallow and butter LONDON knees up, flash pic.
