Soflajo Goldstone 4 PointlessCafe

Watch Over Me – A Very Special Nail Polish for a Very Special Little Girl – Catherine Hubbard of Newtown, CT

Watch Over Me is a warm olive green polish with a golden glow that shimmers in the light. I created this polish as a tribute to Catherine Hubbard from Newtown, CT, a sweet little red-haired girl with a love for animals who was just 6 years old when she was killed during the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. She dreamed of opening her own animal shelter and her parents have asked for donations to be made in her memory to The Newtown Animal Center. I will donate 100% of the profits from the sale of every bottle of this polish to them in her memory. Bottles are available in full size only. Thank you for your donations.

Ice Dancer – I love the sparkle and glitz of the costumes and the fancy footwork of Ice Dancers. When designing this holographic glitter mix of blues, silvers and browns in a blue base, I wanted a “topper” that could be worn alone with opacity in 2-3 coats or dress up favorite undies with its shimmer.

Terrified Collection

 

Anybody that knows me will tell you without a doubt that Halloween is and always has been my favorite holiday. My earliest memories of it were as a small child and my dad dressing up with me to take me trick-or-treating. When I got older we always had a party with cider, warm cinnamon donuts and apple dunking with my friends. One year we were visiting my grandparents and my mean boy cousins made me walk through a graveyard with them if I wanted to trick-or-treat. Even so, I will always cherish these memories.

 

Spider Funk is full of orange and red glitters and small irregular shaped black “spiders”, plus silver hex “full moons” that all stay shiny in the orange matte base. Wear on its own, layer over black, orange, burgundy or green, or with clear topcoat to bring out even more bling!

Every year Joe and I put on a benefit for Abandoned Pet Rescue, a no-kill animal shelter in our neighborhood. This year’s theme is Frankie’s Lab Dance and my polish with the same name is an iridescent green filled with all the glittery colors of Halloween – orange, green, and purple. Opaque in 2 coats or wear over black to see the darker side of our favorite monster.

Happy Birthday to Meeeee! :)

NOTE: Picture Heavy!

Oh yes, I’m still getting those fabulous, fun birthday gifts from my birthday club! Here’s the first post I put up about it in case you missed my debut video! I wanted to make another video, but Joe and I have been fighting these nasty colds for over a week now that seem to be plaguing the entire country. So last night I broke down and opened a few more of my gifts, with pictures only! I want to share them with you because I got some gorgeous polishes that I haven’t seen before, as well as some amazing indies for me to add to my small but growing collection by these talented ladies!

This gift actually came early in the month and I have NO idea why I didn’t already show it. My friend Nikki and I met very early in the nail polish community. We have been doing a very good job (too good maybe) of enabling each other with some marvelous collections ever since! When we found out we were in the same birthday club, it was “icing on the cake” as they say! I actually already sent her gift, even though her birthday isn’t for a few more months, because I had found the Color Club Backstage Pass set at Ross and didn’t want her to miss out on it, knowing how much she wanted it. Wait till her real birthday month comes! Shhhh – don’t spoil the surprise and tell her that she’s getting something else! LOL So on to what she got me! I had been longing for the CC Take Wing collection, but hadn’t found it around here. So what do you think she sent me? Yeppers – and what do you think I am wearing right now? You’re really good at this game, aren’t you?! And of course I got CHOCOLATE!!!!

   

And here’s what they look like on!

And a warning! TOES!!!! LOL And NOT the best pedi at that! 🙁

From Carrie I got Moar Chocolate!

See another cute PostCard? We were supposed to all be including one from our city or region for each gift. I’ve gotten some really nice ones that I’ve put up over my desk. Now this bridge, let me tell you, is one of the scariest I’ve EVER driven across. Actually I was a passenger and Joe drove across it. I don’t know that I could drive it. WOW – I ride 7-mile down in the Keys on my Harley all the time with no problem, but this one scared the shit outta me!!! LOL And Carrie tells me she drives it in the middle of the night to clear her head! OMG – She’s crazier than me!!!

And I also got Pure Ice Busted (PURPLE!!). Which is awesome because WalMart is really far from me and I don’t ever go there anyway. Suffice it to say I don’t like their policies! I love coffee, especially Starbucks. I also got a really neat little red lipstick case. I’ve had them in the past but have long since lost or ruined them, so this was a neat little treat to get! And a Cheshire Cat bracelet. Now isn’t that the cutest little thing?! But the piece de resistance was Carrie’s own Sassy Lacquer Pegasus Jizz! It’s beautiful and I can’t wait to try it and write a review for all of you. I’ve seen other reviews on it already, and it is a highly acclaimed polish in them! Thank you Carrie for sending me my own special bottle of Jizz! LMAO

Next up Candice went crazy (well she says her hubby did) buying me a huge tub of chocolate covered espresso beans! Now ask a coffe addicted chocoholic if it gets any better than this?! LOL And YES, they are Gooooood!! This was such a fun box to open because she had used BIG cotton balls for the packing and tons of fuzzy little craft balls that my cats just go wild over. When I first opened the box I saw a few of the fuzzies, but wait till you see the picture where I dumped it out!

Here it is dumped out on the couch. You can see all the goodies that came tumbling out!

Inside this fun box was a big Sally Hansen file, a bottle of JR Watkins Hand and Body Lotion (I love that stuff!) and the funniest card (Your brain on birthday cake!). She also found a set of Dragon nail transfers. They are unique and I can’t wait to use them. We want to do a bike trip soon, I’m gonna make sure I wear them when we do. (Take a look at that picture in my header. I have the dragon on both sides of my tank!) AND, two Essence Toppers that I haven’t even seen in stores! Glorious Aquarius in an aquatic blue. And Its Purplicious in my favorite – PURPLE!!! As soon as I saw them last night I KNEW I was going to be using them next – OVER the current mani I’m wearing. Why can’t we leave well enough alone?!

And one more box last night – from Kelly. This one wowed me! First, it was a Chocolate Box!!

 

But when I started opening those little bubble pillows I was astounded at her generosity! She included an OPI Nic’s Sticks Silver-Ella. Do you know how hard those are to find? A gorgeous silver holo I can’t wait to try. Then there was the large bottle of NYX Beach Glitter (NPS218). I have some NYX but they are much smaller bottles and I had never seen this one before. And I got indies! By three lovely ladies that I didn’t already own any by! But now I do! I can’t wait to try them. Ursula is a gorgeous purple glitter from one of those crazy Disney Villians (and all my girls know how much I love Disney) from Once Upon a Polish. The beautiful Basket Grass that I’ve heard so much about and agree it is stunning from Pretty & Polished. And the lovely color changing Aurora Borealis from Dollish Polish. It looks very purpley in the bottle and I can’t wait to try THAT! Last but not least is a Girl Scout Lip Smacker in Coconut Caramel Stripe which I think I’m just gonna eat straight outta the tube! LOL

These have been some amazing gifts and I’m excited that these girls are so thoughtful and also a bunch of mind readers! Chocolate, coffee, indies, holos, glitters, well thank you very much I will gladly accept them all with a HUGE smile on face. And all the charities that have had contributions made to them in my name has filled my heart with joy. This is a wonderful group of girls to be in a birthday club with and I thank them so much for being friends!

So tomorrow is my real birthday (May 29) and my little bro’s birthday is the next day! But I’ve got 10 years on the little monster! Wanna see a pic of us waaaaaay back when?!?! Ok well here it is anyway!

That’s also our older sis and our dad. I can’t believe this picture was taken back in the 70s. Man it seems like it could have been just yesterday. Time sure flies. I hope you are enjoying sharing my birthday month with me! There will be more to come! And since today is Memorial Day, I hope you’ve enjoyed it with your family and thought of a service man who has protected our freedoms. Here’s one more picture I’m sharing, of my Mom and her brother my Uncle Eddie, who was a pilot during WWII.

Thanks for taking a few minutes to let me share with you! 🙂

Win Year of the Dragon Polish in Nail Network Giveaway

I have to say blog followers are awesome. All of you! A couple weeks ago my friend Chelsea from The Nail Network was so close to 600 followers and she was hoping to hit that magic number so she could have a giveaway. Since I knew her prize was TWO of the new color changing polishes from my Year of the Dragon collection, I did a quick little blog asking if we couldn’t reach that number and get the party started. WHOA did y’all ever respond!

 

The Nail Network is now nearing the 700 mark! And with just days left in her giveaway, I bet the numbers just keep on growing. She is giving away BOTH The Conjuror AND Pendragon to ONE lucky winner! You can see swatches on my shop page.

Secret Valentine Haul

Most of you reading this blog are in at least one of the nail polish or makeup groups that I’m in on the internet or Facebook. A lot of the groups do a secret pal type swap for different holidays. I’ve done Secret Pumpkin, Santa, and just recently Valentine. It’s a lot of fun to plan your gift and also to receive your gift. In one of the groups I’m in I was lucky enough to actually receive the same person to gift both Santa and Valentine gifts to. She’s a sweetheart who lives up in Mooseland, as we all jokingly refer to her Canadian home. Since I’m down here in warm sunny South Florida it is pretty fitting that she should be my secret pal!

 

On to the fun! Her nickname is Red and I just couldn’t resist the temptation of red for Valentine’s Day. On her card I wrote – I couldn’t remember if they told me to buy all the red polish or all the polish for Red. So I did BOTH! And here’s the box full of red I sent to her (and also included a pink organza bag of rawhide chewy bones for her pooch)! And I gifted her with my reddest polish from SoFlaJo’s Year of the Dragon – Dragon Heart! Yikes, there was one slight casualty, you can see the back bottle on the right with the red top. The lid was not on tight and a little polish leaked out, but she told me it wasn’t much and the bubble wrap contained it all. Whew!

                                 Red's Secret Valentine Pkg   Red's VD DragonHeart

 

Now on to the Secret Valentine package I received from my group! I was in awe when I opened it. Not only was it full of yummy milk chocolate, which IS my FAVORITE chocolate and/or candy ever, but I also got a lovely blue Sally Hansen HD polish, Spectrum. Purple and blue are two of my favorite colors! My SV knew exactly what she was doing with that one! BUT, she blew me away with a polish I’d never seen before – NOX Twilight Disco Darling. What a gorgeous silver holo glitter! OMG, WHAT do you think I had to do? Hell yeah! Hit the google button looking up that polish line. Big mistake. Now I need them ALLLLLL!!! Ayeyiyi But of course she wasn’t done YET. The pièce de résistance of this gift included TWO MORE amazing items!  A Specialty Valentine Card she had made for me by Sarah Trumbauer Creatives. With an OPI bottle on the front of the card, this gift really touched my heart. I got into nail polish collecting with my attraction to OPI and I’ve never lost that love of my favorite brand! AND the gift that actually brought tears to my eyes when I saw it – a DRAGON phone case for my iPhone! All these gifts touched me so much that someone actually paid attention to my posts and comments in my groups to be able to send me, someone she’s never met in person, everything that I would LOVE!

 

I hope your Valentine’s Day was as fun as mine was. BECAUSE I’m still NOT done!!! ONE MORE Valentine post. Then I’m going to bed! LOL
