Would I Joke About Free Nail Polish?


It's like you don't even know me at all. ::sniff::

Through January 13th, Zoya is offering 3 free polishes through their website.  No, I don't mean nail polish without nasties. I mean 3 bottles of nail polish.  FOR FREE. (Plus a $12 shipping and processing fee. Whatever.) And you get to choose the colors.

Go to there.

And don't forget to comment telling me what colors you chose!

Fig+Yarrow Pink Love Salts

As a former employee of Anthropologie, I know when to appreciate a good discount.  Before I bid my goodbyes, I loaded up my shopping cart with some goodies -- you know, just to remember all the good times I had.  One of these was the Fig+Yarrow Pink Love Salts packette.  I do so love to lounge in the bath, and these seemed to promise a relaxing and sumptuous experience.  How could I say no?

Unfortunately, I don't think these quite lived up to their promise.  Although a quick sniff before sprinkling them in the water revealed a lovely combination of citrus and patchouli, the scent totally disappeared once mixed into a hot bath.  I also found it quite difficult to get them to dissolve, and it's not really a luxurious experience lying on top of huge chunks of salt.

These will definitely not be a repeat purchase for me, I'm gonna stick to my plain old Epsom salts and candles for the time being while I search for something to really enrich my bath time fun.

Holiday Hors D'oeuvres

The holidays are certainly a time for shiny things, are they not?   I was unsure about the new Essie Luxe Effects collection, but my sister gave me two of the silvery shades for Christmas, and I'm never one to turn down new nail polish.
BAM!  Pretty awesome, right?  I mean, not the picture, because I have shaky hands, but the nail polish is suuuuuper cool.  Apparently this mofo is sold out pretty much everywhere, but that;s what the internet is for, y'all.  Get yo' hands on this lickety split, while the cold-as-a-witch's-tit weather is still around.  It'll look like you've got ice crystals on your fingernails, and who doesn't like to pretend they're the Snow Queen every now and again?  Speaking of which, I have got to get my ass in gear and go see Frozen, which I hear is positively charming.  Have you seen it?
Happy New Year and cheers to 2014!
