Sally Hansen Dabbler With Some Bling

*Purchased by me*

Hello again! Apparently I'm on a roll or something. That seems to be the way I work when it comes to this blog; it moves in fits and starts. Anyway, a while ago my friend Steph from the Imperfectly Painted blog did a post about Sally Hansen Dabbler. I thought it was a pretty color but that I probably owned something similar and didn't need it. The second I came across it in the store I knew I HAD to have it. It's a cornflower blue but it has a dustiness to it that makes it unlike anything in my whole collection. I had to put it on as soon as I got home...

A few days before I did this mani I had picked up a pretty glitter topper from L.A. Colors at Dollar Tree called Speckled and I thought it would perfectly complement Dabbler.

Speckled was a great polish; especially since it was only $1.00. This was one coat and I didn't have to fish for glitter or even place it. And it's a great mix of colors and sizes of glitter.

I absolutely loved this mani and would highly recommend picking up one or both of these polishes if you come across them. And since I only paid about $4.00 for both of them it was quite a deal. 

Do you have either of these polishes? What do you think of them? Let me know!

Avon Aurora

*I received this as a gift*

Hi all! It has been a LONG time and there has been a lot going on. Since I last wrote hubby and I made the huge move from California to Oregon. I really love it here and it's going well for the most part; the finding a job part is proving to be a bit more difficult than I had hoped but I'm sure something will work out. Anyhoo... on to the nails.

It has been gorgeous here so I had to bust out one of my many holo polishes. A few months ago my very awesome, generous friend Jessi sent me a care package filled with nail polish including five of the Avon Cosmic holo polishes. I'm really into purple so I chose the purple of the bunch: Aurora.

Aurora is a lovely, fine (as in small, not "hey you're fine"), scattered holographic polish. It didn't have a lot of the rainbow goodness of some holos but it is very sparkly and pretty in the sun. I will definitely try the other colors while we still have sun for the next few months. Oh, and this was the longest my nails had been in literally a year and I am NOT used to having nails. So a few days after this I had to chop them; I kept cutting myself and they just felt really strange.

I hope you all are doing well.
