Totally Missed Mani Monday

Frankly, this will probably have to be it's own series, I can never seem to get my shit together over the weekend. Honestly, though, I was in New Jersey all last week working, so I had to focus on things like commuting and helping my mom pick Christmas decorations. 

Sorry I'm not sorry that I'm not sorry.

Julep Fazia is the only color I was excited about for the Novemver Maven box, so I went ahead and got a core collection box and just added this sucker on. I'm glad I did, although I expected it too be more red and less brown than it turned out. Still, I think it's a really lovely fall color, just a hint of shimmer, and it generally agrees with my color palette for the season. It actually reminds me of one of my favorite fall/winter colors from a few years ago, Essie Sassy Satchel, but with more red and a significantly better formula.

So that's that. Here's a picture of a puppy I saw yesterday.

The Original Lush Bath Bomb

I get stressed out. Do you get stressed out? Of course you do, you're a human. Unless you're also a psychopath, in which case you probably don't get stressed out. Good for you. Just try to remember that you can be a psychopath and still not break any laws. Not that you care.

That got weird.

Back to those of us who get stressed out. Do you like baths? I used to think I hated baths, but then I learned that when you're an adult, you can draw the bath as hot as you want and tell everyone to leave you the fuck alone until you unwind from whatever fresh hell you've just experienced. And then you can take a shower afterwards to get actual clean.

Great, so now that we've gotten rid of the psychopaths and people who don't like baths/have a bathtub, I'm gonna tell you a secret that most of you already know so it's not actually a secret:

LUSH bath bombs are the shit.

I'm specifically thinking of the first one they created, Blackberry, which allegedly smells of blackberry, bergamot oil, and frankincense. As far as I'm concerned, it actually smells like a double bird to the haters and feels like GD silk sheets, not to mention it turns your bath purple. This isn't a sponsored post, but I'm gonna go ahead and tell you to just spend the $6.35 plus tax and give yourself a bath time treat once a month. If it makes you half as happy as it makes me, it'll be totally worth it.

N.B. Goes great with a nice cold glass of wine.

Just Another Mani Monday #3

Please excuse the terrible, terrible quality of this photo, but sometimes ye olde iPhone 4s just really hates the shit out of me. How long until my next upgrade? Sigh. Someday I'll be able to invest in a real camera.

Revlon Nail Enamel in Confident (Limited Edition for Fall/Winter 2014) It took so long for this to show up in the stores near me that I totally forgot about this collection, no joke. It's the Boho Chic Collection by Gucci Westman for Revlon. Whenever I hear the name Gucci, naturally I first think of Gucci Mane, but they are obviously very different people. But back to the matter at hand, I decided to go with this instead of the LE purple shade because I'm gearing up to go as Morticia for Halloween. I know now that this was a mistake and I should have just gotten both #REGRET. Anyway, this picture doesn't do justice to HOW AWESOME THIS COLOR IS. It's a red jelly base with red hex glitter in the exact same shade and it makes your nails look like the ruby slippers and I am in love. I'm gonna wear the shit out of this for Christmas, you better believe it.

Gonna have to go back for that purple, though.

Just Another Mani Monday #2

OPIxPeanuts Good Grief! As nice a yellow polish as I've ever seen, not to mention I'm a big fan of Charlie Brown and the whole gang. I picked this up in the miniatures collection they produced, but I'd love to pick up a full size of this truly enjoyable yellow. I used three coats, which is a bit much, but as far as yellow polish goes, I found this to be the easiest apply of any I've tried in recent memory. Now if only I could figure out where this is on sale! Good Grief!
