Farewell Psych mani

Today is the series finale of a show that's been on my top five faves list for the last 8 years. I love Psych, and have been a Psych-O since the beginning. I drove to New York City with a friend just to go to the Psych Fan Appreciation Day.

To celebrate, I painted my nails with what will probably be my last Psych inspired mani ever.

Polishes used:
Essie Grow Faster Base Coat
Sinful Colors Innocent
Sinful Colors Irish Green
OPI in Suzi Loves Cowboys
NYC In a New York Color Minute in Lexington Yellow
Sinful Colors Black on Black
NYC Long Wearing in French White Tip
Glisten and Glow HK Girl Top Coat

Glisten & Glow HK Girl Fast Drying Top Coat Review [pic heavy]

It's about time, I know, I know. Spring cleaning got the best of me, and left me aching and exhausted.

But I'm here, sharing my review on Glisten and Glow's HK Girl Fast Drying and Super Shiny Clear Top Coat!
(One coat Essie Grow Faster, one coat nicole by OPI in I Do De-Claire,
one coat ILNP MEGA, and one coat HK Girl)

I received this from Glisten and Glow to review, and I'm so in love.

My first thoughts was excitement. I had been using Seche Vite for a couple months now, and really, the only reason I use it is because it was ten bucks, and it's fast drying. I have noticed shrinkage and thickness in the SV, and it's been driving me a bit nuts. I've heard great things about this top coat, so I was super excited to try this.

Leaf Bib Necklace from Majestical Jewelry

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Majestical Jewelry was looking for reviewers, and I signed up. They mentioned that they'd "take a look at your blog and determine a piece of jewelry that fits with the style of your look and blog." And they sent this:

The box was very well packaged, and the necklace and matching earrings came with a little bag to keep it in as well.

PolishPETS Craving Rainbows Edition - review (pic heavy)

STORY TIME! Followed by lots of pictures.

Back in January, I won a BIC Pen and a gift card for $25 from BIC. While I was waiting for the prize, I told myself that I would use the gift card on polishes I've wanted - namely, a couple from my 2014 beauty wishlist.

Aaaaaand then PolishPETS came along and changed that.

PolishPETS is the brainchild of Lynx Cosmetics. They are indie polishes that are also adorable little furry pets with individual names. I am a sucker for plushies, and I'm addicted to nail polish, and here these were, the best of both worlds!! I had spent the majority of February ogling pictures of said PETS via instagram, and when the launch date and time was finally released, I jumped at it, contributing to the first release being sold out in five minutes.

There were three PolishPETS to choose from during the initial launch:

The Cute Crime Edition, the Craving Rainbows Edition, and the Perky Pink Edition.

I Love Nail Polish MEGA Review (Pic Heavy)

I got an email around mid-February from I Love Nail Polish about their upcoming Spring Collection and immediately fell in love with a polished named Mega. So I snatched it up as soon as the Pre-order started. This past Saturday, I got the package in the mail! This is going to feature a LOT of pics, because I couldn't stop taking them! Teehee!

First off, let me say, the packaging is lovely. Although the box is huge for just one bottle of polish, I can see a lot of care went in to the packaging department of ILNP.

Paper cranes, NotD, and an update

Hellooooo folks! Sorry I've been a bit sporadic in my posting lately. I've been working on some major cleaning around the house, and I've still got so much more to do! Which means this next week might be just as sparse as far as posts go. It's so sad! I've got sooo many new-to-me polishes/makeup to share and review! But it shall all have to wait! Cleaning must be done!

I do want to remind you that there are currently two giveaways going on here right now, the 1,500 likes giveaway, and the digital download of Cook'n giveaway.  So be sure to go and enter those, because they both end late friday night!

Once those have both ended, I might be posting another review and giveaway, of that Majestical Jewelry I mentioned previously! So hooray for giveaways!
