7 Things About Me:

1.  I have no sense of smell! I grew up in Marietta, GA and at the age of 7 during the blizzard of 83 I rode an uncontrollable orange popsicle sled down our hill on the road.  Some boys throwing snowballs distracted me and when I went to look at them my sled turned and I hit a mailbox and weeping willow tree. I slice the sensory gland behind the cranium so it can't be repaired.  It's both a blessing and a curse!

2.  I am a hello kitty freak! I love anything hello kitty!!!

3.  I have 3 cats.  Molly is a 14 year old female Calico, Puppy is a 7 year old Male Egyptian Mau, and our latest addition Rascal is a 4 month old male Egyptian Mau!

A England's Perceval and Lady of the Lake!

When I put this on I was in heaven! This is A England's Perceval.  I haven't really been a fan of reds before but this one went on like silk and only 1 coat needed! Heavenly!

This is A England's Lady of the Lake which I have been wanting for sooooo long! This too went on soo easily  and depending on the light you can see all sorts of things.  When I had my hand in the sun as it was setting you could see the reflective holographic type part of the polish.  I wasn't able to capture it though!  

I'm totally in love of both and have my eyes on sooo many more! You can find A England here or on Llarowe.  They typically run $12-$14 but it is sooo worth it!

Julep Maven misleading!

y'all know I dropped the program after 1 box and tried another deal later but because I had already had an introductory box I couldn't take advantage of any other deals being sent to my inbox.  I thought at that time they were being misleading.  Turns out they have really done it this time.  Those that went in on the $.01 deal, if you don't cancel before the 27th, you will be charged $19.99.  It is considered an introductory box and if you have tried before like I and decided to give it another go with this, it won't happen.  They should drop the program and just sell their polishes. Quit deceiving people!  If you don't know what I'm talking about, check out http://www.julep.com .

Zoya Feel Collection: Avery

Introducing Zoya Avery! Zoya describes her as: a full coverage, blond-beige cream. An ideal cool neutrral color that covers fully opaque in2 coats.  I love this one! It is perfect for jobs where you don't want to appear to be wearing polish but can't stand to have nekkid nails! Even a tomboy like me can appreciate this! This is a must have!  Went on smoothly and was the perfect neutral color for me. It really doesn't even look like I have polish on! I can't say enough great things about it.
