Ciao for now, Bella,
Sorry for the lapse in posts. I have just had some back problems that are finally going to get resolved. I am firing my doctor. So, being stuck in bed and so sleepy I woke up and decided to do a post since I am taking control of my pain by firing my doctor. If something isn't working get rid of it. So, I really feel lucky that after the last two posts. I was sent four more creams. Oh, they are just so great. I am just at a point right now that I feel that all my polish needs can be met with indies. There was never really a brand that just had creams and if they did they just did not look right. So, I was a prisoner to OPI and Essie for my creamy needs. But now my needs can be met with these polishes, like I said in the last post these polishes a a dream. I have actually been wearing these for a week. I just put on a coat of Seche Vite before I photographed. My sister is really used to seeing me with polish but she actually commented on these. Yes, I wore two different colors on my hands for a week. She asked me where did you get those and I told her and she said oh, my daughter would really like that greenish one. That just means do you want to come spend the afternoon with me. I told her I would love to go over and do her daughter's nails but I need pictures. I have done several manicures for her and not gotten pictures. I just my nieces so it just gives me time to spend with them. So, again, I can’t say enough about how much I love the formula of these polishes. They are just so smooth and dry time is not bad. What I really like is that it doesn’t seem to streak as much as other polishes if not completely dry when applying the second coat. They are super pigmented and the price is just right at $7.50.
This is called A Touch of Glass and is best described as a light aqua mint.
This one is called Honeydew List. This color totally reminds me of honeydews. I love honeydews and honey do’s( you know when you tell your honey, “Honey, will change the light bulbs that are out) Ok. maybe that wasn’t too funny. But it does have that honeydew color and I guess that is why the reason for the name.
So, these are just great. I have two more to show you and then I ordered more. That is how much I love these polishes. These are available now for sale at KB Shimmer.
Tonight I have the long awaited post of the glitters I got from the new KB Shimmer Line. This is Make Me Grey and is one if my favorites of the line because it is on the white side with a hint of grey. I just love those whites. It is packed with glitter and this is a truly wonderful formula. Now, when I say wonderful I really mean it because it is so pigmented that undies are totally unnecessary. I did use a coat of a white polish, when I put the first coat on I was thinking this doesn’t need any panties. I was about to take it off but was already so far on both hands that I just decided to stick with what I normally do. Then the glitters are just a perfect combination for spring, magenta, teal and some grey. I know for sure I will be using this one often this spring
The next one is Laugh Myself Lily. A beautiful teal glitter polish with silver, pink, lavender blue and gold. This one reminds me of Teal Another Tail. I have been wanting to do like a skittle indie and I just saw one in my collection and can I say it’s going to look pretty darn good when I do it. This has the same formulation as the Make Me Grey, no panties really needed because it too is very pigmented. It is just gorgeous and I am so happy that this is one I was selected to review. The thing about this color is that you might think you have to stick with a certain color when you wear it but nope not an ounce of truth. During November, when my daughter came to visit I was wearing it I wore it the whole weekend and on color that really compliments teal is brown. I love those two together. I was going to wear this brown and wacky jumpsuit that someone had on their pinterest board as things not to wear, well, it is beautiful on it made me look thin and the polish looked great with it. I had forgotten how good brown and teal looked together. Come to think of it I haven’t worn that jumpsuit since then I am going to have to pull it out. If you want to see it you can view it on my pinterest boards under My Zulily closet. I don’t know whether to be embarrassed but everything in that closet are actually in my closet. It is the only jumpsuit in there so it is not hard to find. So, make a long story short this polish will go with anything as you will see when you see my ring picture.
And here it is the ring picture. The stone in the middle is a little deeper orange I thought it made a great color combo. I thought of placing little orange rhinestones in the middle but decided since this is a review I would wait until I did a full blown nail art look which is coming really soon.
So, after I finished these I got another set of samples to review and I was so happy so I am working on those. I just broke a nail really badly and was waiting for it to grow a little longer which it has so look for that post after then next one I am going to do. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway. I am adding one more prize. So, keep an eye out for that.
I have decided to start reviewing some beauty products. I just reevaluated my makeup and realized I needed a to buy some things just to update. I am a big Mac fan but I use other cosmetics too. I still think that for me it is important to share with others what it feels like dealing with depression or other health issues so I am moving that to another blog. It won’t interfere with this blog because I don’t have to take pictures. It is just going to be more of a blog about my personal life. I am having some health issues that are leaving me asking a lot of questions but I am not the type of person who just takes things lying down. I investigate and investigate till I get an answer. It is just that having the career I did before I was forced to quit that was what I did and it is just a skill I never want to lose. So, those posts that I have written about some pretty personal stuff will be on the other blog and this blog will be one that I can really write about anything. Patty and Goldie’s Day Off will be a beauty blog. The name of the new blog is Knivesdepressionandnailpolish@blogspot.com
So, you can now check it out. I’ve been doing it for about seven months now but it was private so I feel ready to be able to share more of living with depression. I haven’t posted yet I assume I will by later tomorrow. So, check that one out.
A couple of years ago, I had these camouflage Capri pants and I loved them they were in a combination of light greens. For some reason I just don’t feel that regular camouflage pants look right unless they are on men. I know women in the military wear them but I feel that that is the only time they look appropriate in a woman. I know it deals with my gender issues. I feel a man looks ok in a pink shirt but I would rather just see white. I know, it is just me. So, right now I am on a quest for pink camo pants, capris or shorts. I have seen some on Amazon but I really didn’t look a serious look at them so that is my task today. I am home bound since I got that epidural shot and let me just say it hurt and continues to hurt and I hate the nurse who attended me. She didn’t understand why I might need an extra pain pill last night and doesn’t even understand why I can’t take St. John’s Wort for my depression. That is complete ignorance. I have an appointment with the doctor and I am going to tell him to please explain to this medical professional that each of us have our own way of dealing with our medical issues. Yes, I choose doctor prescribed medication. Why? Because it works on me better than any thing else. I could not believe her. Oh, well. At least it is over and what sucks is that I have had five injections none of which have worked for more than three days and I had to go through all this to satisfy an insurance company. They didn’t even sedate me enough. I was wide awake after I told the doctor give me extra medication, I have a high tolerance and I think he has figured that our but that dumb nurse giving me the medication would not give me the whole dose until the doctor made her do it and still it wasn’t even a little bit of comfort.
Oh, well it is over and all I can do today is complain and hopefully find these camo pants because I created this little manicure with thoughts of this pair of pants in mind. It was really easy. I used Zoya’s Pixie Dust in Miranda on my pointer finger. I started to think I might have been wrong about what I said about the pixie dust until I got the spring collection of pixie dust. Don’t like. Look for the review next week. So the rest of my fingers were painted with Nubar Faded Putty then I used BM 423 for the pinkie and thumb using a brown Konad polish. Here is a tip for making polka dots if you have a stamping plate with polka dots unless you are putting polka dots on white. Stamp in white then go over the dots with a dotting tool and polish. The reason I give this tip is because sometimes for the life of me I can’t get my polka dots straight and I want them aligned but in different colors and I can’t do that with a stamping plate so this gives you straight lines and perfect spacing. Then for the camouflage image I used Winstonia plate 223 for the camo pattern using colors Magenta, Pink and Brown on the stamping plate the trick to doing is to do it fast and with a light scrape. I wore this with Seche Vite but it did not look right so I used OPI matte top coat. It was cute and a lot of people noticed. If you really have the time and tools you could easily do this without stamping plates. I just had the plates and it came out perfect the first time otherwise I would have grabbed for a polish brush and just done some random wavy lines to create the camo image.
So, there is my look. I am busy getting the OPI sandies ready to post plus I have something a little different. I started watching some YouTube videos and thought I needed to update my makeup so I have a MAC, some drugstore and some other lines of makeup that I acquired and have been using so I feel I can now give a better review of these products so, I am getting that together. Also, I decided to sell my unwanted polish on Ebay because I don’t have to do them all as I would in a blog sale. I am auctioning them and all are starting at 0.99 cents and I am going to start charging shipping at 0.99 cents since I now know how much it costs. So, most of my polishes are going under $5.00 with shipping. My seller name is plgreen16. So, if you have a polish you may have wanted and is discontinued I just might have it.
Ciao for now Bella,
