I saw the Deborah Lippmann one in Murale but there were no price tags so I passed on it. Then internetland started showing off this super cute shade by Revlon and I had to have it!
It's a bit of a disappointing colour because of it's sheerness but it would layer pretty over pastels. Whimsical has pink and blue disc glitter with holo glitter and irridescent smaller sparkles in a sheer milky blue base.
I swatched it over Sally Hansen's Inta-Dri Whirlwind White and as you can see from my picture, the white is still pretty prevalent even with 3 coats layered on top.
It reminds me of candy. I LIKES IT! The hardest part of this nail polish is telling yourself you kind of have no control over the glitter and let them lay as they will, sparse or not. The first coat gave my pinkie 3, but more coats = more glitter, so keep packing that stuff on :)
And excuse my poor mangled looking cuticles and ragged ass nails. I work in a warehouse and it's not friendly on my hands even with the amount of hand cream I use :(
This post could have been done ages ago but being the lazy ass I am, I just haven't. And peeking at my blog hit search words a few of you are looking for swatches so VOILA! I did em!
I didn't even know Friday the 13th was happening until I saw a Meow update on facebook mentioning the Friday collection appearing again! The code: brokenmirror will get you 13% off this weekend.
Now I'm sure most people would get excited seeing this but not me.
Because I already GOTS DEMZ! :D
The Friday the 13th collection makes a comeback every Halloween and Friday the 13th hence the name! It's the reason I was able to eventually get them all over time and I love them. There are some really pretty duochromes in it including my favourite non-hooker blue, Spell!
Some of the shades act even better on top of Pixie Epoxy so I've swatched a few there also.
Behold teh awesome and click to make them a bit bigger to see more shimmer.

In other news, I got some more Meow samples (Ice Blossoms and Misfits) but I feel all holiday swatched out. I would like to do them eventually, but then I have to do the Snowflakes and the Glacial Grove and then I'd be all caught up but HOLY CRAP that's a lot of shades. Xmas Trees are done I just have to crop and post but I'm lazy. Lazy and reading. The Fever series. I wants me a Barrons. Nomz...
I also want to do a mega post with all the Egyptian Treasures sometime. I think I have the whole collection with samples and jars combined.
See that!? I went off topic and then so stealthily hopped right back on the topic train. I only hit 30 pedestrians on my way back but SO WORTH IT.
Here's a pretty star ornament I made.
So much talent I know. I sewed that felt like nobody's business.
Yeahhh I'm basically just rambling now because I don't want to go to bed but I have to. Work blows. Someone win me the lottery. So I don't have to work. And I can sit on my but all day buying sparklies, talk about them, read a bunch and oogle James Deen.
Not to be confused with THAT James Dean, although he was pretty oogle-able.
Now how many of you just hit up Google for more? :D
Okie dokie smokies, I've been on holidays the last 2 weeks. This means 2 weeks worth of blogger dashboard to sift through. Those weeks went WAY too damn fast. Good news for the blog though, NEW CAMERA.
I'd take a pic of the new one but the other cameras are still in the suitcase.
I hopped on the computer before unpacking.
I'm THAT person.
The camera is a Canon EOS Rebel T2i and it's going to take me awhile to figure it out but it seems to take wicked awesome pics... (click to make bigger)

Annabelle quad I have to swatch still
The only thing makeup related that happened recently is I made an epic OCC Lip Tar haul. If you've been reading this blog for awhile you know I hate the word "epic" but it's really the only way to describe my moment of insanity of hauling 23 freakin lip tars. They had a sale so they dropped to $10.40/ea from $13 and the cart kept screwing up so I made like 8 carts all weekend (because of the error) and the very last cart I made a half hour before midnight on New Years Eve let me add a bunch before it screwed up to full price again and then I narrowed it down from there. At 23 I didn't do a good job at the narrowing down part but I am SO excited to see what I can create colourwise with these guys!
NEW YEARS RESOLUTION: Buy less makeup
Those lip tars were bought BEFORE midnight so I'm still on target :D
And that brings me to... NEW YEARS RESOLUTION numero dos: Wear lip stuff.
Speaking of which, anyone who does loads of lip swatching, what do you use to wipe the old stuff off to stop your lips from chapping? I can usually only go 3 shades in a row and I might as well have rubbed my face down a brick wall because the end result is fugly. And hurty.
I'm gonna hit up my craft store for empty containers and mix some magic and hopefully 2012 is the year of lip swatches because I have a feeling these things are going to keep me busy. I plan on trying to dupe shades, like the MAC Quite Cute lippies, and since I have the actual lipsticks I can see how far off I really am. SCOREEEEE DUDES! I also wanna try to dupe a certain purple-toned grey lipstick...
I'm just some 27 yr old girlie in Canadaland, dodging polar bears and wild geese and junk, who is addicted to reading and who feels the need to share my <3 for makeup!
