Hi-Res by Milani

Hey guys! So one of the last things I bought was two Milani polishes from CVS. It was the only place I could find the holographic Milani polishes. I got Hi-Res(purple) and Cyberspace(blue). I was so impressed when I wore Hi-Res! I guess I just didn't expect much, but it was gorgeous! I didn't need a base color or anything. Just two coats.

What do y'all think? Do y'all own any of the 3D Holographic polishes by Milani? I think they were worth the three dollars and something I payed for them.

In more exciting news...this year is the first year my school is having a 'fall break'. We'll have off of school Monday, October 31st and Tuesday, Nvovember 1st. So pretty much a four day weekend. And then Friday, October 28th is just our school's fall festival so we won't really be doing much. SOOO..I am going to Tennessee! Yay! It will be my first Halloween, that I remember, in Tennessee! And you know what Tennessee means right?! Cosmetic Market!! I am so so so excited. I'm positive that I'll have a haul post, probably straight from Tennessee, too!

I'll have more posts coming this week...

Sorry just doesn't cover it!

I am more than sorry y'all! I've absolutely been meaning to post something, ANYTHING so that y'all know I'm still alive! I have been so busy between senior stuff, college applications, work. Plus tomorrow i'm taking the ACT and then more work. I'm actually working all weekend. So tonight, I'm going to post my 'school-spirit' nails. I used Orly's Liquid Vinyl as a base and then layered a red, silver, and black glitter on top. The glitter polish is from Forever 21 and the back of the bottle actually calls it Red/Black/Silver. Haha. This really was perfect because those are my school colors! I wore these for homecoming :)

And i'll just give y'all a cute bonus picture:

I was attempting to fix my covers on my bed and my yellow lab refused to move. Obviously the covers didn't bother her much! I love my Delta Queen!

I'll try to post again soon-my intentions are good!

China Glaze-Skyscraper

Heey y'all! I am such a horrible blogger! It's been a week since my last post! I try everyday to make room in my schedule for blogging, but sometimes it is hard. Today i'm posting Skyscraper by China Glaze. I bought this in my last haul from Sally's. It is a gorgeous glitter that has full coverage in just two coats. I thought at first that I was going to have to layer it over something..but I was mistaken!

I think that this is from the Metro Collection? To get it off, I used the foil method! It worked PERFECTLY! Honestly. I was amazed. I didn't get to get a picture, but i'll try next time. What do y'all think  of thi color?

Don't forget to enter my giveaway! It ends this Friday!

Haul Post

Hey ladies! Like I said in my last post, i've been super busy! I'm going to make a quick haul post before I start studying for my exams this week! This haul was from about two weeks ago. I stopped by Sally's as well as a drugstore that sells OPI! I also got a Sally's Beauty Club card this time and am looking forward to saving some $$!

From Sally's, I got 4 China Glaze polishes and 1 Orly polish. The first Orly polish that I spent my own money on! And also my second in my whole collection! I think the deal at Sally's was like to buy two China Glaze polishes and get a pack of false eyelashes free or something? I'm not exactly sure, but I ended up with two packs of falsies.

I've never work fake eyelashes so I don't really have a clue about them. I got the sparkly ones for either Halloween or a Saints game!
 These are the polishes:
L to R- CG in the City, Skyscraper, Up All Night, Shower Together, and Rock Solid
CG in the City, Skyscraper, Up All Night, Shower Together
Rock Solid-I cannot wait to wear this one!
I picked up (for the first time) two packs of nail wheels! Which I am almost finished swatching my collection, then i'll have a post about those. And I also picked up some dried flowers that I have seen used a few times in other blogger's manicures.

Now..from the drugstore with OPI:

OPI's Swimsuit..Nailed It, Pink Shatter, Pros and Bronze, Love is a Racket, and My Address is Hollywood. I was so excited to find all the newest collections!
 And in the mail I recieved my two Butter London polishes from Ulta's BOGO free sale!
I got Macbeth and British Racing Green. This picture isn't the best of lighting. I only kept British Racing Green. My sole purpose of ordering Macbeth was to give to my English IV teacher since we are currently reading Macbeth-she loved it!
So anyways..let me know if you're interested in seeing any of my new colors! Hopefully i'll be back and blogging again soon!


P.S.-Don't forget to enter my giveaway that ends October 14th!
