Maisie Dating a Royal

Hey Everyone! I am going to attempt to post during the day and do my photo editing at night for awhile and see if it helps out. It is a GORGEOUS day in South Florida today. It is actually pretty odd, it was just unbearably hot and today it is cool and windy and nice enough to have the doors open at work. I know there were winter storm warnings for the Northerners too. I really think the world is going wacky. The guy at CVS this morning was talking about how people think the world is ending because it is cool out. We laughed a little bit about that one.

This morning I hit up the magical Walgreens near my job. I never know what I am going to find there but I have been stalking it harder than normal lately because they carry some Layla polishes and I am dying for them to get the Holographic polishes. They haven't yet but today they did have a few items on clearance and a special find. These are cell phone pictures so they aren't the best quality but I was too excited to not share.

I am pretty cheap. I usually won't buy polishes unless they are on sale and even then I will try and wait for clearance pricing. Well, today I got clearance pricing. I had been too cheap to buy the Wet N Wild Color Icon glitters when they came out but for .74 cents I sure will! I would have bought more but those were the only two colors. I have lemmed Milani Teddy Bare forever now and when I saw this brown and read Teddy Brown I freaked out. THEN I realized that it wasn't Teddy Bare after all. I bought it though because I love brown polishes. I am still lemming Teddy Bare though lol. Yes, the blue one was the shocker of the morning.

I found two of these bottles hanging out with a bin of Sinful Colors minis from Christmas time. Um, I thought at first maybe it was a Wet n Wild but the bottle was too big. It couldn't be? Could it? OMG YES IT IS A GOSH POLISH!!!! It says Special Edition on it and had the flowery print on the cap. Um, WHAT?! I stalk that store fairly frequently and have NEVER seen a Gosh polish there before and I couldn't find another one anywhere. I was floored. I had to buy it because it is blue and it is Gosh. I also need to figure a way into the backroom of that store without getting arrested to see if there are more. INSANITY I TELL YOU!!!

Ok. Today's post is a gorgeous polish I lemmed for a long time before I finally broke down and bought it. I don't remember if I got it on a blog sale or what bu I shouldn't have taken so long to get it. I topped it with a coat of Zoya Maisie since I had it sitting there and love flakies.

This is two coats of OPI Dating a Royal with one coat of Zoya Maisie. As you can see my index finger had broken quite bad. It was painful and ugly. I apologize. I cropped it out of some of the pictures because I do not like it. It has grown back some so that is good.

My poor nails and cuticles took a beating working out in the warehouse for two weeks. This is the sad state of my cuticles and nails after all that work. They are slowly getting better.

Since everything I have done has been rushed lately when I did this mani it didn't quite dry fast enough and I totally trashed my index finger. It was pretty bad. This is why I try not to stray from SV, nothing else quite dries as well.

I really love the Zoya Flakie, I am pretty sure I am going to need the other two to add to my collection.

Dating a Royal is an awesome polish. It applied nicely and is a gorgeous royal blue squishy jelly like polish. I am not sure if it is a true jelly but I love the way it looks squishy.

I need to wear this one again soon.

I loved this mani.

That's all for now :)


  1. GOSH at Wags? You have the oddest Walgreens ever! Though this does give me a destashing idea--maybe I'll just drop my unwanted unswappable polishes in the clearance bin at Rite Aid. :) (Not that any GOSH would ever end up there from me.)

    1. I finally found out that it came from a collection with four colors. I need to go back and search that place high and low to see if there are more hiding. I have NO CLUE how it got there or why. That Walgreens is completely odd!

      That is too funny. I can just imagine seeing all the random polishes from your stash hanging out in a bin!
