Fangirl Friday: 9.20.13

Yammie's Noshery Pretzel Pizza Rolls

1. Thanks to Mr. Sparkle, I have a special place in my heart (and stomach) for pizza rolls. Lazy Sundays, movies, snuggles, and pizza rolls. Yep. I'm superhard to please, y'all. Anyhoo... I stumbled on THIS recipe, and I cannot WAIT to try and make these little suckers. Yammie's Noshery is officially the first food blog on my bloglovin' feed. Check it out... clever writing AND great recipes... Book.Mark.All.The.Things. :)

2. Sweaters with Elbow Patches...

I've wanted to make one of these for a while now, and there are TONS of tutorials on Pinterest and other DIY sites. I'm still not sure of what shape I like best, but this is definitely on my level of craftiness and BONUS! You don't need a sewing machine, which is good, because I don't have one!

3. A LOT of Fall/Winter/Spring Polish Collections have been announced, and I just keep on adding them to the Wish List.

Zoya Black Swan, Boy Toi, Ballet Babe

Zoya's Zang Toi Collection doesn't come out 'til Spring 2014, but that didn't stop me from adding Boy Toi and Ballet Babe to the list.

If G from Nouveau Cheap would ever stop blogging about nail polish... Well, I don't know what I'd do. I'd certainly have more money in my wallet... The 12-Piece Disney Villains Set from e.l.f. is definitely calling my name. 

And while I'm on the subject of polishes that I want.Want.WANT...

Can I just whine for a minute that I have YET to spot ANY of Sally Hansen's Rent the Runway Xtreme Wear Limited Edition glitter polishes in the wild? Where are they all hiding? If you know, and you're not telling, we're so not friends anymore. Just kidding. Seriously, though... where are these hiding? I was going to try a 3-month No-Buy soon, and this collection is stressing me out 'cause it's nowhere to be found! Just check out these swatches, and these... I mean, really. Why are these glitterbombs hiding from me? So.Not.Fair.

4. Sparkly.Tights. Need I say more?!? Loooooook...

They're soooooo sparkly. And shiiiiiiny. (I like the shinies.)  

5. Want to be Ke$ha for Halloween? They've got an app for that... 

c/o Urban Outfitters

Just kidding! But Urban Outfitters does have a Rock Star Glitter Kit that can help. They didn't have this when I was Ke$ha for Halloween 2010. Back then, most people had no idea who I was supposed to be!

And speaking of Halloween...


I have no idea what I want to be, let alone what Peanut is going to be. Something cute that will get me her a lot of candy. But I don't want to go too crazy. Any ideas?!?

Seize the Sparkle Fangirl Friday

Hope you have a great weekend! Technically, it's the last one of the summer!

*It's driving me crazy, but I can't find the link to this anywhere. If you know where it comes from, please let me know so I can remedy this!

SinfulColors Mauve On Seriotype

Whether you call it a seriotype or smooshy... (I prefer seriotype) there is just something about this style of manicure that I can't get enough of. 




Polishes Used:  1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Out Ridge Filler 3 Coats SinfulColors Mauve On Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line 1 Coat SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite
Hey there! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Sorry about that. Life happens, you know? Oddly enough, I didn't stop painting my nails during my hiatus. I kept taking pictures for a while, and then that just sort of stopped to. Weird how some habits die hard, while others don't change a bit. 
Anyhoo... I found pictures of this mani in my files and couldn't believe I didn't share it! This was one of my favorite polishes last spring, and I recreated this exact seriotype/ a few times. 
This mani started out with 3 fresh coats of Mauve On. I typically wrap my tips on the 2nd coat and add a 3rd for balance. Next, I ad…

Polishes Used:

1 Coat daniPro Clear Top Cover*
1 Coat Seche Vite

I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3

In case you missed my review of First Kiss, daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health.

Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter shades on my toes lately…

Zoya Free4You Promotion

It's Zoya promotion time again! This is one sale that I just have to jump on every year. Usually, it's because I try to do a no-buy around the Holidays and I'm just itching to buy all of the polish. I didn't really set out specifically to do that in 2015, but that's how it ended up. So I was pretty excited to get the email about Zoya's one week only Free4You sale!


The premise of the sale is simple, choose 4 Zoya shades, (excluding pre-packaged sets, Naked Manicure, Zoya Treatments, and the Spring 2016 Whispers Collection) enter 4YOU at checkout, and pay just $15 promotional shipping. That's the equivalent of $3.75/bottle with free shipping. Zoya polishes normally retail for $9-$10/bottle, so this is a pretty sweet promotion!

Now I know you're wondering... what shades did I pick out? I thought you'd never ask! I swear, I didn't set out to only order purple and blue polishes. And I know that exactly none of these were on my Lemmings list! That see…
