Meet Me Over The Rainbow Bridge

This is a very special post.  Today marks 2 years since I lost my first fur baby.  She was my best friend, my soul mate, the love of my life.  She didn't even come into my life until she was already 7 years old.  But I was fortunate enough to have 11 great years with her.

Leah Ann of Colors by Llarowe recently lost her fur baby, Zipper, and created a polish to honor him and his final journey.  It is called Meet Me Over the Rainbow Bridge.  All the proceeds from it are being donated to the ASPCA.  

Meet Me Over the Rainbow Bridge is a gorgeous periwinkle leaning purple holo, creating perfect rainbows on your nails.  Formula is perfect and was easily opaque in two coats.

If you follow me on IG or know me from other places, you know that I was fortunate enough to find another doggy to love.  I didn't think I could ever love another dog, but I do.  There is love after the rainbow bridge.  Hug your fur babies tight <3

Colors by Llarowe can be purchased here as well as many other indie brands - Llarowe is the biggest stockist of domestic and international indie brands and ships worldwide.

Ooh La La

Hey everyone!  Can you believe March is almost over?? Time sure is flying this month!  Today I have for you a HTF Enchanted Polish, La La Land.  Rumor has it that it is named for a Demi Lovato song, as many Enchanteds seem to be named after songs.

La La Land is was the first Enchanted Polish that did not come in a standard white box or even the mystery black box that many monthly polishes came in - it comes in a gorgeous teal box!  Many people wanted this polish for the box alone, and I was one of them.

The polish formula is fantastic, as per usual with Enchanted Polish.  One of the many reasons they have such a high demand.  I don't think I have ever encountered a problematic Enchanted Polish.  They are long lasting and of course, the holographic ones are insanely beautiful.

I actually sold another blue Enchanted to afford La La Land, and although I do miss it (Water for Unicorns), I really like La La Land.

As you may already be aware, Enchanted Polish commands a higher than average price, at $16-$17 per bottle at retail, but usually twice that for the resale market.  You can get lucky, though.  If you're interested in acquiring La La Land, I suggest joining Enchanted Polish fan groups on Facebook and other nail polish sales groups.  You can also sign up for Enchanted Polish's newsletter for release and restock information on their site.

Shamrock Shake

Hey everyone! Hope you remembered to set your clocks forward (if you live in an area that participates in that kind of thing).  I live in Arizona, so no time change for me!  It's one of my favorite things about living here, other than the fabulous weather!

Today I have a St. Patrick's Day mani for you!  I recently went to Kmart where I found Orly being sold, and picked up a gorgeous green holo glitter, Shamrock Gloss Glitter.  And I finally saw the Sinful Colors Shamrockin' that seems harder to find.  

I combined both for you in this simple, but cute mani - the Orly is a bit sheer, it is probably meant as a topper, but I'm not one to follow rules, so I used 3 coats to get it to a good opacity.  Then I accented two of my nails with the Sinful Colors, I did have to fish a bit to get the white flower glitter, but it wasn't too hard.

Orly can be found at Ulta and Sally Beauty, but now I have seen it in regular stores like Kmart and Walgreens.

Sinful Colors is available at most drug stores.
