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'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!

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…

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027, today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION...

Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and then add in some shimmer and glitter. 

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon.

That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY. This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's?

Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones. I ma…
