Thank you!

I've just made my second donation to Red Cross Japan using Google Crisis Response for about $195.

Thank you so much to everyone who purchased a mini trio set, all of that money went into this donation.   We have raised $300 total so far, I will continue to make the minis and in fact I still have a lot of sets for sale.  I made a Shop tab so you can easily access what's currently for sale. 

I don't have any nail pictures today, so how about one of my dogs, Jasmine?

A bare week

Aah it's finally the weekend, I haven't worn any polish all week!  Yesterday I made an Absolutely Alice dupe and tried it on my ring finger.

This is just 1 coat.  I don't have the real one to know if I'm close or not, what do you guys think?  Flash really makes it look sheer, in person I can't even see my nail line which is why I stopped after the first coat lol.

Yay happy weekend!

OPI Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides Collection Swatches and Review

This year's Spring BRIGHTS Collection by OPI offers 6 new creme shades and a silver shatter.  These colors are themed with the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie, On Stranger Tides. Also in the collection is Silver Shatter, which I forgot to include in the above photo.

Skull & Glossbones 3 coats.  Light beigey grey, I have already worn this twice as a full manicure.  It looked a bit blah in the bottle but after wearing it I just love it. 

Sparrow Me The Drama 3 coats.  Cool dusty pink. I don't think these kinds of pinks look good on me unfortunately.

Steady As She Rose 2 coats.  Very pale pinkish lavender.  I was surprised this covered in 2 coats!  I love how soft and dainty this makes your hands look.

Planks A Lot 2 coats.  Slightly darker in person, this is a nice light purple.  Love the name too!

Mermaid's Tears 3 coats.  Muted jade green.

Stranger Tides 3 coats.  This is a very pale murky olive green.

Silver Shatter comes with this collection, I think it's a pretty neat shatter color.  Here it is over black.

Here it is over Skull & Glossbones, Stranger Tides and Steady As She Rose.  These light pastels are harder to see under the sparkly silver shatter.

Over Sparrow Me The Drama.

Finally here it is worn alone, which I liked a lot.  The Silver Shatter is pretty awesome, I can totally see myself trying it over many manicures this summer. 

The formula for this collection was superb.  At first I thought it was on the watery side, but as I continued to swatch I found that it's just right for these light cremes.  It made application quite easy.  This is a pretty neat collection, I do like the dustiness of the colors it gave it an interesting twist.  My favorite shades were Skull & Glossbones, Steady As She Rose and Mermaid's Tears.  These are available for purchase now.

Sent to me for review.

Happy Mother's Day ♥

My notd:

This is Turquoise Shatter.  Right hand shown because the shatter looked better lol.  Underneath is Simmer and Shimmer from the OPI Burlesque Collection.

Here I am!  Just eyeliner today.  I forgot to do my brows too aaaaah.  Heading out the door right now so wishing all the moms out there a wonderful day!

A month or so ago it hailed almost everyday for a week at my house, and one of the days was extra loud outside and the hail was the size of peas (maybe even larger)!

Have a nice day!

Frankenpolish update!

Hi everyone!  I just wanted to thank you all for your kind and supporting words just in general about my frankens.  You are all so sweet!  I am so touched by all the nice things you guys have said in emails, comments and twitter.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you! ♥

I did get to see what the most popular colors were, I was quite surprised because a couple that I thought would fly off the shelf didn't sell at all lol.  Go figure.

The next shipment of bottles will be here at the end of the week so I will be making more starting next week.  My sweet mother in law got me new glitter colors so I'm excited to make some new glitter combos!  I am going to be very busy now during the week so I will only have time to work on frankens during the weekend, so this next batch of polishes may take a while, perhaps a month.  I will keep you guys updated.

Also, thank you to everyone who ordered, and also for ordering the charity sets!  I have plenty more sets available so I will keep donating.  So far this sale we've earned another $150 (updated!) for Red Cross Japan.

Below is what is still available for sale, my next will be another month or so after I get my bottles.  I am so behind on comments I apologize.  I will try my best to answer any questions in this post if you have any :)

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
