Let’s Get Polished

Hello my Jujubes,

First off, I would like to start off this post with a big, giant thank you.  I now have 1,297 1, 365 views, 22 25 followers, and my last post got 37 41 comments (: .  Thank you so much guys, I just want to give you all a oh-my-gawd-she-is-going-to-choke-me hug.  I love you all, thank you for all the support! ❤

Today’s post is going to be nail polish swatches, since that was the second most requested thing on my “Fashion Fades, Style Stays” post with the polls.  After I do all of those, I will do more polls asking about the next post!

PUSS IN BOOTS 😀

Just this past Friday on Veteran’s Day, I went to the mall with friends and had a pretty awesome time.

So, first we ate lunch at Ruby’s Diner and ate some delicious french fries (Ruby’s has the best) and some juicy, crispy chicken strips.  After filling ourselves up, we went to the Forever 21, and I bought a lot of cute accessories (haul in next post!) .  It was fun having friends to rate and help you choose what top or jacket is the best and worth the money!

We also stopped by a in-walking-distance drugstore to look at all the new releases and pick up some nail polish (we all love to paint our nails).  I picked up a holographic glitter from Sally Hansen, and an Orly polish in Rage (ah-dore the color, can’t wait to paint my nails with it!).  I saw some of the winter collections for some of the makeup brands, and all the packaging and colors look gorgeous!  Well most…some look over the top and cheesy, but hey, what do you expects?  ITS THE HOLIDAY SEASON :D!

After all this, we went to see Puss in Boot 3D and it is the one of the cutest movies I have ever seen in my life.  I don’t want to spoil it for y’all, but you get to see a lot of Puss’s cute face :D.  It’s very romantic, very cheesy, and super duper awesome for Puss in Boots fans/lovers!

We also went to the photobooth and took some really silly photos, but I can’t show you guys because they are labeled with the mall :/.  So stupid!

Starbucks ended this mall rendezvous.  I ordered the usually, Double Choclatey Chip Frappucino with whipped cream.  Literally heaven in a milkshake, no joke guys.  Not good for you, but come on, a girl’s gotta live!

Here’s some pictures!

Moustches for Movember!

As you guys probably know, November (AKA Movember) is prostate cancer awareness month.  Since I’m not a dude and I can’t grow out a moustache, I decided I would do little staches on my nails!  I did all different shapes, as you can tell.  For the base color I used Essie in East Hampton Cottage, and for the black I used China Glaze Ink.  Toothpicks, a steady hand, and patience were used to achieve the moustaches.  Some of these supplies are not accessible at store, you might have to just deal with it (:~!

Chorus:

Polish Up!

Items of Interest (Polished Addition!)

I’m going to be mentioning 10 polishes that I find are worthy of a spotlight 😀

1. Essie Nail Polish in Aruba Blue:  It’s such a pretty color, and Essie polishes are one of my favorites 😀

2. Butter London Polish in The Old Bill: I’ve heard this metallic has such fine glitter and shimmer it looks like actually molten metal on your fingernails.  Also, I really want to try Butter London, so maybe this will be my excuse to try it!

3. Nicole by OPI Polish in Have a Heart: It’s frickin’ heart shaped glitter…I don’t care how badly it will probably go on, I want it.  Like come on, how cool would it look on top of a baby pink? Right?

4. Orly Polish in Space Cadet: Is this not the coolest looking polish you have every seen?  It’s pretty much a quad-chrome (that’s how you say it, right?) with pink, gold, dark blue and green.  Can someone transport me to Ulta right now?

5. Revlon Nail Polish in Facets of Fuchsia: This is supposed to be a dupe for Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance, and you guys know I’m an uber cheap-y.  If I can a color for 5 bucks instead of 18, I’m going sieze the opportunity like a ninja (shh…it’s a secret)

6. China Glaze Nail Polish in Ring in the Red: It’s a new, glittery take on the classic red, and who doesn’t want that?  Glitter always makes everything better.

7. Chanel Peridot: You guys have probably heard of this color a million times because it’s so hyped over, but I really think this is one color that your won’t encounter at your stroll down the grocery aisle.

8. Deborah Lippmann Polish in Wicked Game: Being a green and purple duochrome, it’s got to have some limelight, am I right?  It must be uber hard to have complementary colors that are supposed to “opposites” be together in the same polish without looking like mud.

Sorry for bad pic, couldn't find a better one

9. Cult Nails Polish in Unicorn Puke: Like the name, love the polish!  It’s a multicolored flake polish which look amazing layered on other polishes.  I got to find a way to get my hands on it!

10. OPI Designer De Better: When silver and bronze are mixed together, you would think it would be a train-wreck.  However, OPI pulled it off with Designer De Better from the Muppets Collection.  How much I want this polish…UGH!

The Three Musketeers! Kinda…ish…sort of….

Hello my Jujubes,

If you didn’t notice already, I added two new pretty awesome asians to this blog.  You all probably recognize Evon, who is my bfwlatcbwsleoa (best friend that lives across the country but we still love each other anyway).  We met when I had a youtube channel, and we still are besties even after I quit!  I also added Janine, my best friend in “real life” so to say.  She’s not as die hard about beauty and fashion like Evon and I, but she still interested in that stuff!  She’s into punky stuff.  For example, she wants to dye her hair blue and purple (partly).  She’ll explain more in her intro post, but I wanted to give you a little background (:~!  Now we are all one big family (ehh…) and can conquer the world…one lipstick at a time (LOL cheesy…Janine hates that stuff…but she has to deal with it.)

BTW, our “schedule” will be Evon will post on Tuesdays, I will post on Thursdays, and Janine on Saturday (:  Well, let’s just get into this.  AND, I almost forgot, thank you for 1,000 views.  I got there so fast, it’s amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you! ❤ Moi!

Coda: Quote of the Day

1. All Time Low: Damned if I Do Ya, Break Your Little Heart, I Feel Like Dancing

2. Cobra Starship: Good Girls Go Bad, Hot Mess, City Is At War

4. Jack’s Mannequin: Dark Blue,

5. OneRepublic: Stop and Stare, All this Time, Good Life, Secrets

7. Paramore: Playing God, Monster, Misery Business, The Only Exception

8. Ron Pope: A Drop in the Ocean

9. Train: Drops of Jupiter

Refrain- Nails of the Day:

This picture do not do these nails justice!

Today, I’m wearing OPI Over the Taupe (I got my nails done with it, and I love it!  Need to buy it :D) and later when I got home I layer Sinful Colors Let Me Go on top.  Its pretty much gorgeousness on your fingernails, I’m in freaking love with it!

Chorus- Fall into Autumn, A Makeup Tutorial:

So you might remember this eye look from my old freshfabulous blog but I decided to recycle it to this blog since my camera isn’t working so I can’t take pictures.  Also, I deleted the last blog before I saved the text part so it’s all new description!

1. Prime you lids: This will keep everything on all day and make colors more vibrant.  I used the Shiseido The Makeup Eye Primer.

2. Apply a shimmery light beige base to the lid: Since the liner is the main part of the look, a subtle lid color is the way to go so your lids don’t look bare but don’t overpower the look.  I used the lightest color in the Revlon Illuminance Cream Shadow Quad.

3. Do the wing: Using the foiling liquid of your choice, wet a small liner brush and use it to apply a dark copper wing to the upper and lower lash line (I used a toner to foil, and the lighter color from the NARS duo in Cordura to do the wing, and a e.l.f. Detail Brush to apply the eyeshadow). To do a wing, extend the lower lash line and connect your lined upperlash line, then fill it in.  Do the same to the lower lash line, except only line the lower lash line halfway.

4. Set the wing: Using the same eyeshadow dry, set the wet wing to help it last.

5. Layer Mascara: Layer mascara’s to create the spider lashes affect

And you are done!  Hope you guys enjoyed that! 😀

Bridge- Items of Interest:

1. Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Travel Size Set of Five in Naked

~It looks super uber cool!  I’ve always wanted to try the UD pencil liners, and this is just makes it convenient! It has very neutral colors, and at $32, you can’t go wrong, with a full size being $18 (which I probably would never use up!).~

2. Urban Decay 15 Year Anniversary Eyeshadow Collection

~The packaging it to die for, the colors look amazing, and I’ve heard so many good things about it!  Also, they are all new colors, so if you already own UD Palettes, you would have two of the same!~

3. Bare Escentuals Brushless Mascara

~I know what your thinking, a brushless mascaraI?  Wouldn’t that clump your lashes horribly?  Well, let me explain.  I saw a review on youtube by FleurdeForce, and it look AMAZING.  Like not just eh, but GORGEOUS.  It separated her lashes amazingly and in the end they looked like long, curled fans surrounding her eyes, no joke!~

4. Benefit Sugarbomb 

~I’ve heard it the perfect neutral blush that gives you the perfect glow, and I want to know if it is “the one”. But for $28 is it worth it?~

5. T3 Single Pass Whirl

~This clamp-less curling iron has amazing reviews, and it’s said to be the best on the market.  However, I’m skeptical about the $130 price tag, and wonder if there is a cheaper alternative.
