Soflajo Goldstone 4 PointlessCafe

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!

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.

I Love a Holo

A few months ago I blogged about a swap I had with a lovely Brazilian girl. She sent me some polishes by Ellen Gold that are a lovely holo. I finally wore my first one. I have way too many untried I’m trying to work my way through and thought this would be perfect to go with that gold pedi I just posted about!

In my birthday group I was gifted an Orly polish, Crawford’s Wine. It is beautiful! It was part of the Valentine’s Day Collection a couple of years ago. Since I don’t buy a lot of Orly (my helmer has less than a half drawer full), I don’t follow their releases as well as maybe I should because the ones I’ve gotten as gifts or picked up on sale at Sally are gorgeous and a dream to apply. This one is no exception. I applied one nice coat as my undies over my base. Since I knew I’d be topping it I didn’t necessarily do the best job on the base. 🙁

 

This is a photo of Ellen Gold Holo Vermelho. It actually is very dull without a topcoat. I used my normal Sally Hansen Clear 110. I wore this mani all week and only had minimal tip wear.

 

If you get the chance to pick up any of the Ellen Gold holos – go for it. This is a spectacular color, and the only reason I put undies with it was because it’s not a polish I can just go down to the store and pick up if I run out and I don’t want to do that! LOL

 

Even in the shade it’s a good looking holo! I hope you have the chance to get some of these and try them for yourself. 🙂

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! 🙂

Love that International Swap!

 

IMG_4800new

I was involved with two international swaps last month and they were both so amazing! One was from Brazil (oolala) and the other was from the UK (yummy). Both ladies are super super super(!) sweet and are two of the best swappers I’ve ever met. Even though I sent what they asked for I feel that my boxes to them were so inadequatre compared to what I received from them! I’m waiting to hear back from both of them because I cannot believe that my boxes didn’t get to them yet. In both swaps we each shipped to each other on the same day. I just hope they are as happy with what they got as I am with what I got. If they aren’t, trust me I have no problem sending them moar! LOL

IMG_4795new  IMG_4797new  IMG_4788new  IMG_4789new  IMG_4794new 

So from Alice in the UK, and what started our whole swap was that awesome Max Factor Fantasy Fire! When I asked her what she would like and sent her my swap list, she said “All of it” (haha not quite), so I had to get busy finding other things I’d like to get from her. Since I’m not extremely familiar with UK brands except the MF, Gosh and Models Own, she gave me some ideas and what great ones they were! I also got MF Graffiti, Blue Odyssey, and Moon Dust; Models Own Gold Rush and Mixed Up; 17 Fury, Revenge, Sulk; Gosh Purple Heart, and she gifted me with George U the Sea and MUA Shade 10. Everything is so rich and gorgeous looking. From looking at all this it’s pretty obvious I’m not really into cremes! Yes the Max Factor are little, you can see all four of them in my hand.

IMG_0018new    IMG_0020new IMG_0023new    IMG_0021new 

My swap from Brazil was already predetermined on the Hits! Heck yeah I knew I wanted some of those after seeing everybody’s beautiful swatches all over the internet! Glitter Forte, Unconventional, Artsy, Cutie Pie, Hestia, Apolo, Dionisio, Hefesto, Atena, and Zeus. What a gorgeous selection of polishes they are! But wait, there’s more! Ludurana Aurora Boreal; Rivka Carrie and Ellen Gold Cinza Chumbo (I love that name!), Prata, Roxo, Vermelho, and Rosa. She also got me 2 lovely bracelets, a convertible shopping bag and since I already carry several on my purse you’d think she read my mind! Carolina also gave me darling little note cards, emery boards (with cats and cheeta prints), and the neatest stamping plate with hearts, cats, teddys, dogs, bunnies, and other cute symbols on it.

These girls really made my collections come alive! I don’t know that I’m really a person with lots of lemmings, but if I was, they certainly filled those spots! And I also got a bottle of Savvy polish (from Sally’s) that my good friend Jane gave me when we went out to dinner the other night. She said, Well it was purple and all the Savvy are now 99c, so I bought them for you, my daughters, myself. Hmmmm Jody, now I’m starting to sound like you! LOL Yep, we converted another one ladies! Welcome to our Polish Kingdom, right?

IMG_0016new

All of the international polishes were pretty small actually! The smallest were the Max Factor which are 4.5ml. The rest ranged in size from 6ml for The Hits, MUA, and maybe George to 8ml for 17, Ludurana, and Gosh. The largest were the Rivka at 10ml, Ellen Gold at 12ml, and Models Own at 14ml.

So what swaps have you done lately? For a couple of international ones (I have done two with Australia previously – oh yeah – Glitter Gals and Ozotics), I am really beyond words at how gorgeous their polishes are. Who is with me in thinking US makers need to step up their game?

So what polishes are on your must have list?

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!

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
