I did a manicure recently with Essie Plumberry polish and Essie Luxe Effects glitter top coat in A Cut Above. I love the Plumberry shade, but the top coat with it was just OK fro me. I liked my look with Bikini So Teeny and A Stroke of Brilliance top coat much better. Here is […]

Nail Biter

I have a confession. It’s not pretty, but I have been a nail-biter since I was about six-years-old.

Hello Kitty Beauty and Makeup

When MAC Cosmetics put out their limited edition Hello Kitty for MAC collection, it was wildly popular. That got me wondering what other Hello Kitty makeup, beauty, or Hello Kitty cosmetics might be out there. After a bit of browsing, I came across a decent amount of Hello Kitty lip balm and lip glosses, along […]
