NOTD: OPI's I Vant To Be A-Lone Star.

A very strange name that I can't see connecting with the collection. This color really surprised me. It look blah in the bottle, but after applying I saw it in a new light. It's a creamy greyish with hints of shimmers and blue tones.

OPI Serena Glam Slam Spark De Triomphe & White Shatter Set

I took a leap when I bought this set. The glitter is beautiful...but White shatter? uuuhhhh...hmm. I was pleased! The set comes with two nail lacquers, and directions on the back to achieving the shatter look. The glitter is a metallic silvery-gold. Where does that exist?

Halloween 2011 - Sucker Punch's Baby Doll

Happy Halloween!!!!!!

Really, realllllly late.And by really late I mean Christmas. EEEEK! I have been ridiculously behind on posting. Life got in the way. Now that I have finished up my internship and on winter break, I plan to pump out these posts I owe you guys. Classes start back up in January, so I plan on being dedicated to my blog!

Anyways, Halloween as usual, was AMAZEBALLS! I went as Baby Doll from Sucker Punch. I ended up having a groupon for a costume store and bought the french flight attendant costume and used it for Baby Doll. My makeup was very simple. She has this whole innocence thing going for her.

In case your wondering....YES, I have extensions in! :)

What were you for Halloween?

NOTD: China Glaze - Crushed Candy Crackle

This doesn't even deserve the name Crackle. Do you see much crackle? I don't. It came on really thick, and where it should have split and crackled it became a little sheer. The color is very creamy and lovely. But alas...FAIL.

China Glaze - Halloween 2011: Haunting

I think this is my last color from the Halloween 2011 collection. But I make no promises. You haven't seen my ever growing bag of nail polishes. It's insane!

This color reminded me of that Star Wars scene with the starry black sky. A pitch black color with silver colors that remind me of stars and space.
