LL After Dark: True Blood Style

Hey guys! A little late in the day, but I have a post for you. Today is the monthly post for the Lacquer Legion and the theme is After Dark. I went through a whole slew of ideas for this one, then two friends (who have been slowly getting me open to the idea of watching the show) threw out that I should do the logo to Fantasia — a vampire bar in HBO’s True Blood. As soon as I heard it, I knew that’s what I was doing.

BBofCFL — Pink

Hey guys! Today, the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida are doing another linkup, and this month’s theme is pink. You all know pretty well that I’m not a fan of pink, so this one was a little tough for me to figure out. While pink in October usually means breast cancer awareness, I’ve decided to go a different route and simply create a pink manicure.

Julep Maven October It Girl Swatches

Hey guys! Hope you had a great weekend! I did. My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend away and a day at Epcot, just for the hell of it. It was a blast and I absolutely loved spending time in just that park. It’s my favorite! Today, I have the swatches for October’s Maven It Girl box from Julep to share. I know it’s odd to have two swatch posts (and from the same brand) back-to-back, but this is a little important to me. It’s almost impossible to find actual swatches of Julep (outside of their Photoshopped photos on the website), and a picture of the bottle doesn’t really tell you how the polish looks on the nail. So, I’m going to be pretty consistent in swatching any Julep polishes I get. Let’s take a look!

Julep September Maven It Girl Swatches

Hey guys! It’s been a long while since I’ve done a Julep swatch post, hasn’t it? I know these are a month late, but I knew I was not going to have time to put this together during the challenge. I did however use all three of these colors in the flower design I created, so you can definitely see them working together there. Swatches are after the jump!Julep September Swatch Continue reading


OPI Calendar: October — Pink and Purple Ruffian

Hey guys! How was your weekend? I somehow managed to score a three-day weekend, and I took advantage of it! Everything’s clean, laundry is done, I finished reading a book, and I somehow managed to convince myself to paint my nails. So, today, I put together this look using four OPI colors.
