Purple Mermaid Manicure

I really don't like having bare nails. And since I have so many nail polishes, that I'll never use in this lifetime, I decided to paint my nails yet again this morning. 

Sephora by OPI has to be one of my favorite brands of nail polish but at $9 a bottle I don't have many. I do however pick up the gift sets because they are a bargain. While shopping for the infamous Metro Chic awhile back I stumbled upon a gift set with Metro Chic, Domestic Goddess, and A True Romantic. I snatched it right up and fell in love with all the colors. 

In this photo, I layered two coats of Sephora by OPI Domestic Goddess with one coat of Sinful Colors Let Me Go. The result is a lovely medium purple iridescent with green-y teal-y duochrome. It is very difficult photograph well but I captured some of its beauty on my thumb nail. It reminds me of mermaids and it's gorgeous!

Happy Birthday!!!

We had a little BBQ for my husband's birthday last night and I just wanted to share a picture of my hubby lighting his candles. I love him so much. I'll keep the mushy-ness to a minimum and leave it at that.

Look at how bright his cake is! By the way, I decorated it myself with blue gel. Pastry chef in the making? ^___^

Beauty is Relative

Besides jewelry, I have a passion for makeup and all things beauty related. I want to start posting reviews of stuff that I've tried, the good, the bad, and everything in between. I'm even open to doing a few tags. Let me know if there is anything you'd like to see here.
