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.

Manglaze Haul and Mink Mitten NOTD!

A couple of weeks ago, Manglaze posted a couple of promo codes offering 10% off and free shipping. Although these matte polishes are designed for men,  I jumped at the chance to finally get my hands on some of these!

Here's what I got.
My polishes, 5 Franken Juggs(and balls), a guitar pick, a sweet decal, and a business card with the lovely Suicide Girl Honey Manko!

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 later...here 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 unique...shop 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....
