Nubar Peacock Feathers! A dream come true!!

Finally! After what seems like an eternity of searching! I now own Nubar Peacock Feathers. This is one of those discontinued, very hard to find polishes. I finally obtained this through an online swapping group I am a member of! 

This is one of the most beautiful duochrome polishes I have ever seen. 

Looks pretty bland in the bottle, right?

It consists of 5 different "Collections"
Velour Finish, Diamond Couture, French Trends, Metro Chic, and Party Glam.

I was too excited to wait. TwentySevenPolish PRIDE!

I was going to wait to post this mani until I could get outside in some real lighting...with my real camera. But alas, I could not wait. So you can thank the wonderful world of Blackberry smartphones, partnered with my impatience, for the quality of these pics!

I was browsing Etsy a few days ago for a gift. I came across a little nail polish store that I had never heard of before. TwentySevenPolish. There were a few things that caught my eye, so a hop, skip, and a checkout later...I bought 3 minis. I am only sharing one with you today.

It wears so well....I've only had one tiny chip! I was getting bored though, so I decided to top it with Essie Shine of the Times.

NOTD and Review, Happy Hands Mayonegg

Happy Hands Nail Polish is a relatively new brand on the Indie scene, but have become very popular, very fast! Last week, they introduced their new collection, "I've Made a Huge Mistake", inspired by the television show Arrested Development. I'm going to admit that I've never watched that show...but that didnt keep me from snagging a couple of these! I actually ordered Mayonegg and Motherboy, both of which are currently sold out. They do restock weekly on their Etsy shop.

Love My Nails (Bari Cosmetics) Haul and Wheel Swatches!

About a week ago, I was reminiscing about old polishes I use to love. Love My Nails was one of the brands I was reminded of. A quick google search later, I was browsing the Bari Cosmetics website. A cart full, checkout, and a week I am with polishes in hand.

Now, Bari Cosmetics' website is not very user friendly...more about that later.....but the pictures they have on the site are teeny tiny and you cannot see any details of the polishes at all. 

I'm here to help. :-)
I'll start with the glitters that I purchased.  
(all pictures are clickable to enlarge)

(L to R) Kiss Me, Diva, Milky Way, Cosmos, Crazy For You, Star Bright, Pink Surprise

Swatched in same order.

HARE Polish Bottle Shots and Wheel Swatches!!

In the past year, one thing that has seemed to explode all over the nail community are "Indie" brand polishes. Indie brands are generally polish mixed at home, and sold to the masses. They differ from anything you can find in a traditional store. If you are looking for something Indie!!

One of the very first Indie brands I remember hearing about is HARE Polish.

I only own 5 Hare's, but I wanted to share how lovely they all are.

All of my little beauties....

Let's Go Way Back! Revlon StreetWear Lipstick and Polish

Today, while browsing a local discount store, I spotted a bin or random makeup items. At first glance, this bin looked like nothing I would be interested in, but the sign screaming "3 ITEMS FOR $1.00" enticed me to look more closely.

Imagine my surprise when I noticed a few old lipsticks that looked familiar poking out of the pile inside....
