Batteries now in the camera so here are a few things of note: first up, room 114 of the Home for Wayward Polishes. This is one of the smaller rooms.
I have to give a thank you to the groupthink that is the MUA Nail Board for getting me to buy Gold Bond Ultimate Softening Skin Therapy Lotion w/Shea Butter. That's good stuff! I like it better than Neutrogena Hand Cream at least for winter. I'm using Weleda Skin Food on my cuticles at night but haven't really seen a difference. I have been dehydrated due to dry winter air so the best thing for me to do is drink more water which I've been slack about. Hydration is key!
Spotted this week-the new WnW fast dry polishes that have a Lipmann Happy Birthday dupe-they were mislabeled as being .99 instead of $1.99 at my Kmart so I grabbed Party of Five and the 2 jelly holo shades (pink and blue). Can't remember their names off the top of my head. Been stalking Walrusmart to see when the Essies are coming without any luck but I did find three of the Nicole Justiin Bieber polishes-the red glass fleck one (OMB), the purple glitter and the blue w/holo glitter. So far I'm impressed with the red and the purple ones-JB has pretty good taste in picking polishes. I read on another blog he will have a spring collection out as well since this one did so well. SMH. I guess if Duran Duran had slapped their names on polishes my friends and I would have bought them all so it's generational. Except Duran Duran were actually talented. ;-) Click to embiggen!
Also from Walrusmart I succumbed to the new Sally Hansen minx things-I got Frock Star only because the pink camo ones were already sold out (big surprise, living in Redneck Central and there be a run on pink camo!) I got them for $7.50 thanks to a coupon I'd snagged at Walgreen's. Have only tried them on one pinky but I like the concept very much they just aren't economical. I saw that the latest 4 Sally Hansen Xtreme Wears were made permanent-Grey Area et al? Also some new Diamond Shines with wedding-themed names and some new Insta-Dry colors too (a crazy intense cobalt blue shimmer and something that looked just like Commander in Chic).
That navy polish hs a secret gold shimmer-it's going to be the first of these I'll wear. It's not very navy either, but a dusty medium dark blue. Yum!
