Cirque Sanguine

This is a gorgeous polish from Cirque.  It is from one of the older collections but it is just gorgeous.  Cirque has turned out to be a very good line of polishes.  I have almost stopped buying OPI, ZOYA and China Glaze.  It seems that indies can meet all my polishing needs.  If there one thing about me is that I like to be different.   I just saw the OPI Notdic Fall collection.  So, many dupes.  Don't get me wrong I need certain polishes which are staples but I just get much more excited from an indie release.  I just think this polish is beautiful and great for summer and really how many times does a polish company actually drop their prices.





They have a new line coming out August 5th.  You can buy this another polishes at their website Cirque.

Great Beauty Product

Throughout the time that I have posted on this blog about the fact that even at the age of 50 I still suffer from cystic acne.  Finally after several years of suffering my last break out was during November due to a round of steroid injections.  I decided to see a dermatologist instead of taking matters into my own hands instead of the hands of a salesperson at a cosmetic counter.  We tried several oral medications with topical ointments.  I stopped the oral medication because it was just making me sick.  I was not seeing any improvement.  So, I decided I needed to do something.  Basically there was no breakouts but everything was dry and it seemed like I was just drying out more.   Showering right now is not really safe for me right now because sometimes I get some serious leg cramps so I have just bathing but this was not enough to steam the dryness off my face.  So, I heard some good things about the Clairsonic.   I thought I would give it a try.  I bought the $99.00 model and was amazed at the results. My skin felt really clean and I realized how much stuff was staying on my skin.  I was using it twice a day and just noticed my skin started to get so sensitive.  I read some reviews that stated that even though directions are to use twice a week it is best tow work up to that.  As soon as I did that the results were even better.  I have changed my skin routine in using milder cleanser.  Total difference just a little tender care was what my skin needed.  The results of this clairsonic are almost immediate.  You can feel soft glowing skin.  There is another version but it is bigger so that was the reason I chose the smaller version also I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on something that wasn’t going to work.



See how the smaller version fits easier in small hands.  If you go to the Clairsonic website they have a special deal to order the system.    So, if you are having problems or just want to improve your skin
tone and have used other products this is a very good investment.

Urban Decay Naked Pallette 3

Has anyone bought the Urban Decay Naked pallette?  It's nice enough but how many can really wear all the eye shadows?  Not many this is my naked pallete I ever bought and it went right back.  I'd  say it is only good for two skin types very fair or dark skin anywhere in the middle and you are out of luck unless you want to wear a white base.  I am not crazy about white bases.  Some people are really upset that the pallete is made this way but every cosmetic cannot be for everyone.  They make make ups for dry, combination and oily.  Personally, I cannot wear foundations for dry skins because I have combination.  So, I was upset but it is just one of those cosmetics that I personally can wear went and returned it for the Kat Von D monarch pallette which is so much prettier any way.  One thing I find is that people buy cosmetics that don't work but keep them.  You can return anything you don't like or doesn't work.  Just make sure you save your receipt and cosmetic counters will change it out especially if you ordered online.  I used to be embarrassed to return cosmetics bout no more.  So, now I don't really have anything in my makeup collection I don't use. I literally use everything I have.  Another piece of advice, you know how cosmetics companies have a gift with purchase.  I used to go wild and have to get that gift but I usually ended up with a whole lot of nothing.  Don't get sucked in.  If you are going to just buy a concealer and it is not enough for the gift so what.  Do you really need that gift no.  Save your money and head to any other department where you know you need nothing.  If you change your mind and have to get that gift you can go back the next day and purchase something else to get that gift if they say no.  Return your purchase, they will work with and if not return your purchase and go back the next day and get your gift.   If they complain ask for the manager she won't let a sale go.


Monarch Butterfly

I remember being a little girl and loving to catch butterflies.  I would grab them by their wings but then I noticed that trying to let them go was futile.  Why?  Be cause if you grab them by the wings you are removing a special chemical product they have on their wings which helps them fly.  I did not know that until my aunt told me.  One thing she did tell me is that if you hold your finger out they will come land on your finger the main thing was not to feel fear.  I don't know why anyone would feel fear so we stood there and sure enough a butterfly landed on my finger after a minute later I got one too.  So, butterflies were my first lesson on patience.  It was nice and handled perfectly by my aunt.

The colors I used are from the new Cirque Heritage collection.  I did gradients with different colors on each nail then I stamped using BM424.  Some people do know how draw the butterfly.  I can too but if I can stamp.  I stamp.  I plan to do one with the actual colors of a butterfly with a orange red yellow gradient.





So, those are my nails.

Ciao for now,

You know you are having a weird week........

When all you can remember is doing your nails but it to you it is still Monday.  I have an event on Thursday and have been wanting to use this polish but somehow I was doing other manicures.  So, yesterday, I figured out what happened.  I was prescribed this nerve pain drug, my psychiatrist said it would make me loopy boy did.  So, I know I did manicures because they are in my camera but I don't know why.  Imagine that a pill can do that to you?  I 've got one manicure and a popular eye pallette review.

Bats in the Belfry

This is one of my favorite polishes from Whimsical Polishes by Pam.  I used my favorite white OPI’s My Boyfriend Scales Walls.  This is one polish that I just felt white was the best color for this polish.  You can see that it has different shaped glitters.  It is really simple but so pretty.  It might look good on a dark grey or a gradient but I just chose white instead of going for another color.




You can buy Pam’s polish on her website at Whimsical Ideas by Pam.  They cost approximately $10.00 a bottle.

Hall Pass July

Now, you know I love doing these posts.  This month's hall pass is a gorgeous man who we have lusted for since he first walked into the fictitious city of Bon Tomps on True Blood.  Yes, I am talking about Joe Manginello.  Now, this is not an very day Joe.   What was wrong with the writers of this show.  He should have sex with every woman in Bon Tomps instead of chasing after Sookie.  They should have killed Sookie off first season because I know my friends and family who saw the show hated Sookie.  That is the only good thing about True Blood ending is I don't have to see Sookie.
But let's look to the future Joe is doing just fine with 5 movies in pre-production.  He is reprising his role in as big Dick Ritchie in Magic Mike XXL.  His first scene where he is sewing his thong was hilarious.
He is also rumored to dating Sofia Vergara.  That's a hot couple.  I hate to see cute guys with ugly girls.  So, I can deal with this.
Enjoy the pics.
The best outfit in the world Levi’s and a white shirt.

Wow, I wash my clothes on that ab.
So serious.
I love a man who can look good grungy and then look like- see the next pic.
What a man!

Signing in

I have made a major decision.  I am not going to let this back surgery and all the complications because of it take away the one of the things I loved doing away from me.  After much research I pushed my doctor into finally admitting that there is a problem, it's scary and he has to fix it.  When I woke up from surgery of course the pain was terrible but there was something else I immediately complained about and that was that my feet felt like they had marbles on the bottom when not 24 hours out of surgery they made me walk.  They had not done enough to ease my pain even though morphine had been ordered I never got it.  I had the surgery in an outpatient surgical center the doctors owned.  I stayed three nights because they could not release me.  The last night I was there, I told the doctor I could not believe the only pain medication I could have was Hydrocodone.  A medication that is for mild pain.  He said I ordered morphine.  I told him I never got a drop even tough I was crying in pain.  I immediately got the morphine.  It was too late though.  I never got pain relief.  Last Tuesday, I just stopped pain meds but after two days realized I still needed something now and then.  The reason I still need something is my left leg retaining so many fluids it is crazy.  I got medication to solve it but it only cured the left side.  Scary because when people have heart problems they do get edema.  So, I really challenged this doctor and I won!  When does that ever happen.  I needed a win to gain confidence that this problem will be fixed on this doctor's dime.  Patty- (1) Kant (-1).  I am winning.   I have some people to help get through this and I am so grateful.  I am going to be okay.
(I am going to edit some pictures tonight I have a review on one of the best beauty products on the market right.  So, look out for that)
