Check. It. Out.

Yay! My birthday is in two days and I gave myself a festive manicure tonight. It actually reminds me of a cross between my Grad Night 2003 t-shirt from Disney World and Elsa from Disney’s “Frozen” … but that’s another story… :) [Read more…]

{Beautirati} Butter London: Disco Biscuit [Swatches + Pics]

Hello Spring! and Hello Summer!

This is “Disco Biscuit,” part of Butter London’s SS12 line of polishes, and it makes me want to say “Disco my biscuit.”

Don’t ask me why, but if I were Cher, and this was “Clueless,” I kind of feel like that would be something that would slip off of my tongue with ease.

Either way [Read more…]

You can check out one of my tweets, here.

Fairy Lights, The Black Knight & Tart with a Heart by Butter London Swatches

against my faux-fur Trina Turk vest I'm obsessed with

The 2011 Holiday collection is the latest trio of polishes by nail brand, Butter London.

I must say, I’ve been obsessing over these three polishes since I got my hands on them three weeks ago (Oct. 30, Nov. 7, Nov. 8, Nov.20).

They are just glittery, sparkly and absolutely deliciously fun! I can’t even begin to convey the glee and sense of princess-ness I feel when I see them shining in the sunlight or under a bright lamp.

So I don’t know about you — but the holiday season can be rather stressful.

It’s fun, and my favourite time of the year, but seriously?

All the preparations, all the “I don’t know what to wear,” “Crap, I already wore that,” “My head hurts,” “My mascara isn’t going on straight,” “Manicure. Like. Right. Now.” “I broke a nail,” “Who plans a holiday happy hour at 5 p.m.? Some of us work,” “Ugh, they will be there? I don’t want to go anymore, must I?” — Yes, all of that. We’ve all been there. Done.

Enjoy :) [Read more…]
