NOTD, Ulta = love/hate.

Here's my NOTD from Saturday that extended through until today since I've been so busy:

Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Plus - Base + Top Coat, N.Y.C. - Love Letters (French Manicure), N.Y.C. - Love Letters

This is just Love Letters (French Manicure). I love this by itself. You can't really tell the nail is painted, but it just enhances your natural nail. Love.

This unfortunately REFUSES to photograph properly. I've tried so many angles and different lighting, and none of them truly show how amazing it is. The outside pictures show the sparkles, but in the indoor ones show some of the dimension (pink with a hint of yellow.) Even though it's so subtle, I truly love this mani.

These are videos that show a bit more of the amazingness of this mani, yet it still just doesn't do it justice. (Also, don't mind P in the background of both of them, haha.)

This is how the weather treats me every time I have a swatch to photograph. It's cloudy where I am (teasing me that it isn't elsewhere) and then when I'm working and can't go outside, the sun is out shining bright. *shakes fist*

This is from my trip today to Ulta with Cheeto. Oh, em, gee. Bad news bears. We aren't good shopping together... we don't allow the other to stop. I'm super excited for everything! But my wallet is not.

Now I have a TON of swatching to do, plus more layering/glitter combos to create! I'm excited though exhausted just looking at all of it!! I purchased the Wet N Wild glow in the dark & Diamond Cosmetic Nite Lites on recommendation from both Cheeto & Scrangie, so I'm very excited to try them out!

I must say, after seeing all of the Halloween stuff out, I can't wait for it to be October already! I love the fall (even though I don't really get to experience it due to living in the 1&1/2-ish season state.)

I've uploaded a video to my previous post.



  1. Hahahaha! Omg I know we're bad together - but you know, its all good. Who really needs to have an excess of money?? I'd rather have an excess of cosmetics! Yeahhh - I'm anxiously awaiting fall as well, but unfortunately it really doesn't become fall till late november/early december. Which is still really far away. But we can pretend, right?

    Hahaha. I see your twitchy thumb. lol. fabulous.

  2. wow love all the things you got from Ulta! I just found your blog and I am a new follower!


  3. We are, but it's so much fun! Haha.
