I just recently started using the website Hautelook. It's a website that brings you great deals by top brands. You just have to sign up. And of course it's free!

A blogger friend turned me on to this website, and I'm glad she did.

I recently bought some Muk Luk Boots, Urban Decay pigments, and an AA Scarf. Everything was 50% off which was awesome. Once everything get's here I'll do my best to do a proper review.

Anyhow if you're a deal shopper this is a pretty great website. Check it out by clicking the link below.

My Winter Wonderland!

It happened. It finally happened. It snowed on Christmas for the first time in my life. How amazing, and beautiful. I hope everyone had a joyous day. It was nice, and of course the snow that came made it perfect.

Today I played in the snow with my dogs and Dad while everyone else stayed in. I took tons of pictures on my new DSLR. It was fun, cold and fun!

So here is my Christmas manicure. Plan and simple Ruby Deer by China Glaze. Nice in two coats. Had some balding from my top coat, but it was no biggie. The last 3 photos are the most true to life.

Now on to some snow pictures.

Jumping to catch snow in her mouth. Gosh she's so cute!

So there are a few pictures. I wish I could add them all. So many cute ones that's for sure!

Thank You Zoya!

I participated in a Zoya Twitter Contest on December 20th. I kind of forgot about it until I got on Twitter the next day. I noticed a tweet from Zoya that I had won a free bottle of polish and Mini Remove along with two other Zoya fans. I was so excited!

To make it even better I received my package on Christmas Eve. I can't believe how quickly it came. What a great Christmas present.

Thank you Zoya, y'all rock!

Here's what I got. A mini bottle of Remove, and Crystal Polish.

(P.S. I took this with my new DSLR camera. Yay!)

Thanks for reading, and again Merry Christmas!

Let's Party Hearty!

Umm corny title...

Haha. I've got a Christmas party going on, on my nails. I decided to use Frosty and Party Hearty and do a cute manicure. (If you follow me on Twitter I posted a quick picture of it.) Similar to what most people have seen I'm sure. I really love it though. I'm not sure if it will last all the way to Christmas, but we'll see.
I used 2 coats of Frosty and 2 coats of Party Hearty on top of that. I noticed I had a bit of tip shrinkage obviously happened when I put on my top coat. No biggie though.
I really like how Frosty applies. Great formula. And of course Party Hearty was pretty easy to apply. I really like the 2 sizes of hexagon glitter paired with the smaller square glitter.
Now on to the pictures.

Pretty stuff. Hehe.

I can't believe it's almost Christmas. We just got our tree up today. I hope everyone is enjoying the Holidays!

Thanks for stopping by.

Mrs. Claus, Sparkles.

I cut my nails shorter again, and I was ready for something festive so I pulled out Mrs. Claus from the China Glaze China Glaze 'Tis The Season To Be Naughty And Nice Holiday Collection. When I put it on it made me instantly happy. I loved the pink sparkle.
My Mom and my Neurologist commented on how festive and sparkly my nails were. Win!
This polish is great in my humble opinion.  It's a pink jelly with pink and silver glitter. I had an easy time with application. I used 2 coats over 2 coats of Nail Tek Foundation then Poshe top coat. It did chip once on my index finger because I snagged it on something in the a store. I fixed it though. Haha.
I photographed my nails yesterday but the lighting just wasn't right. So I braved the cold this morning and got some good shots. My dog thought I was crazy I think.
On to the pretty sparkle:

Haha there's part of my doggie in the background.

(Quick health update: My neurologist thinks I have Fibromyalgia. I'll be having an MRI and some other tests done soon to make sure other thinks are ok. Saying a prayer for wellness and good outcomes.)

Sparkle Overload?

I've got so much polish yet I can't figure out what to wear. Don't you hate that? It drives me crazy. I put polish on then swipe it off over and over.

I grabbed my unopened bottle of Hard Candy's Wicked. I put it on and I really liked it. Then I thought hmm let's add more sparkle. So I added 2 coats of OPI's Sparkleicious. Sparkle overload. Well sort of haha. I'm not sure I'm really in love with it though. As much as I love the polishes on their own I'm not sure I'm feeling them together at the moment. Any other time I would love the combo I'm sure, but I feel like I'm missing something. Ahh don't you hate that too? All I know is that it will be a pain in the arse to take take off lol.

*I wrote all of that last night right after my I did my manicure. I must say it started to grow on me today. It also wore like a champ. We were cleaning my parents living room and moving in a new couch and love seat. I also gave 2 of our dogs baths. So I'm pleased.

Ok, enough rambling. On to the pictures.

Wow my nails have gotten long. I'm not sure how I feel about them long since I usually keep them short. Haha.
