Hey Everyone!!! Oh what a month! I sort of forgot that school was wrapping up and that means tons of events and lots of money is needed for various things. I totally forgot that last night was my son's last concert of the year. What makes that even worse is I am an officer in the Band Parent Association. We scrambled around Wed night getting stuff for the concession stand and I spent all night at the school last night. I think the concert went well but I was holding down the fort at the concession stand most of the night so I didn't really get to check out the bands. Monday night they are going to play the National Anthem at the Miami Marlins Baseball game which is way cool and very exciting. I will definitely have pictures from that!
Today I have to show you the awesome contest I won from Stephanie over at At Peace with Polish. She had a baby hunch contest before the birth of her son baby E and I actually won. I thought it was the most unique and fun contest and had such a blast entering. If you don't follow Stephanie's blog I highly suggest you do!! She is super cute and I love her blog. Go follow her here, I can't wait for you to get back :)
THANK YOU STEPHANIE and BABY E!!!!! She sent me three awesome polishes that I can't wait to wear and blog about!
Revlon Hearts of Gold fx, Nail Sauce Abalone Shell and Layla Flash Black.
This picture was supposed to be a picture better showing the polishes but I don't think I quite captured that. Duh for me. I am super excited and trying to figure out if I could use all three together lol I love them!!! THANK YOU AGAIN STEPHANIE!!!
Now the next three polishes I picked up when I was making my polish hunting rounds. I tend to frequent the stores in case they suddenly have something awesome appear. Most of the time I just look but on some occasions there is actually something interesting going on. I saw the new Sinful Colors line at Walgreens the other day and was super excited. The Sinful Shine with Gel Tech is supposed to be "5x more glossy than a patent leather shoe". Um, ok. I am not really sure where they came up with that or how they tested and came up with an exact 5x amount but hey whatever floats your marketing boat.
I picked up two colors. I made a quick decision because I really had to pee and my son was not being of any help in picking out colors. I picked Steel Reserve and Amazonian. They are more than regular Sinful Colors polishes at $2.99 each but when you are getting "5x more glossy than a patent leather shoe" you are going to have to pay a little extra! I tried Steel Reserve quickly on my toes one day when I was about to head out the door in flip flops. It was a rush job because I was literally heading out the door so I don't have much input on them yet. I can say they were pretty glossy but I will have to do a full mani before I come to any conclusion on them.
I also happened to pop into Sally Beauty Supply and found one of the 2013 Wild About Spring colors on clearance.
I passed on Fishin' for Fun when I saw the whole collection because I don't do pink very often. I must say though that this one and Are You Hoppy were on my radar when the collection was out but I resisted. When I found it on clearance and had a coupon I decided it could come home with me. Had Are You Hoppy been there it would have come home too lol.
Something about the colors of this one makes me happy. I will have to wear this one soon!
That's all for now :)
P.S. ohhh next week I have an awesome preview of a few of the Shipwreck summer collection from Smitten Polish. I am super excited about them! I can't wait to show you all how awesome the collection is!
