What Happens When a Blogger Living in Canada Goes to the US for the Day Again

Yeah so have a guess what happens when a polish blogger living in Canada goes to Buffalo for the day.  Now, you may think that it couldn't be that bad, surely Canada has all the same stuff the US does.  NOPES.  Not even a bit.  To make matters worse I went with my lovely friend Tara (hi Tara!) who is just as in to nail polish as I am so we spent the whole day driving around to find nail polish.  That's my idea of an awesome day but ow my wallet.  Let's take a look at what I got, shall we?


I know it's a little hard to see in this first one but it gives you an idea of scale.  Also, what my lightbox looks like.

Notable here is the full Halo Hues collection from Color Club that is so amazing I could literally die, Sally Hansen Lustre Chromes that I haven't seen here yet, OPI DS Temptation, three free OPI crackles, a gorgeous new Butter London and a whole bunch of cheapie China Glazes, Icing polishes, Sally Hansens, the cheap one that isn't Sinful Colors, Milanis and Wet'n'Wilds.  You'll be seeing lots of these, especially the Color Clubs, if I can get to the sunshine :(

Thanks again Tara!

  1. SO jealous! What stores do you usually hit up? I don't know much about shopping in the US but I live near the border so I love going when I get the opportunity but I only know Ulta and Walgreens and recently Rite Aid, all of which are impossible to find near each other... Oh, and Sally's of course, which was too intimidating last time I went xD

    1. This time we hit up a CVS near the bridge that's not Fort Earie (can't remember the name), the Ulta, Target and Sally's that are all together in an outside complex and then the Walden Galleria. The Galleria was the best, you just have to go to all the beauty supply stores there. The one near the Sears end has sooo many OPI's and Zoyas and the one at the other end near the Designer Shoe Warehouse has alllllll the Color Clubs - that's where I found the full set of Halo Hues. This many sound all very non-specific but it makes sense, I swear! :)

  2. So awesome! I'm going down to the states on Black Friday and I'm probably going to haul quite a bit too!

  3. I'm in Toronto, so not far from Buffalo, and this makes me wish I had a car!

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
