Sometimes It's Actually Like Magic

HI.  So, my little sister spent the past eight weeks in London, and was kind enough to bring me some goodies for cheaper than I can get them here in the good old U.S. of A., only one of which I'm going to talk about right now (I'll do the others when I've had a bit more time to work with them.)  All I can say is, if they are all as delightful as this one, my bank account is going to have some serious issues.

That's Marimekko bedding, btw.  Bought it at Marshall's.  I win.

Bourjois Paris Magic Nail Polish Remover.

Does it actually take one second?  DON'T BE STUPID.  Is it actually magic?  YES.  A couple of twists of the finger and BAM! No more nail polish annoyingly sticking around, interfering with your new nail color.  Seriously, it took me maybe two minutes to do both hands.  No, a minute and a half.  DOESN'T MATTER IT WAS FAST AND DIDN'T SMELL BAD.  This product came to my attention courtesy of my very favorite makeup blog, Vivianna Does Makeup, you should totally all go check it out.  Lots of good recs, even if some of it is easier to obtain in the UK.

Now, I'm not gonna lie.  That link above?  Yeah, the price of this with that shipping is total crap, especially since I don't know how long this sucker is going to last.  That, however, is the only place I've been able to find that ships to the US.  But I'll tell you what, if it puts in a good long haul, the time it saves me might be worth the money.  I mean, I paint my nails like, three times a week.  That's a good deal of nail polish removing.  Especially since I have twelve new Essie polishes (AM I EVEN KIDDING).

I missed your posts so much! Love the bedding and seriously one second nail polish remover where has it been all my life. This is perfect for those times when i want to wear a different shade everyday... not that I do that or anything.
