First Post

Hey everyone, Happy Thanksgiving! So I've had quite a few of my friends tell me I should start a nail blog.. and since it's Thanksgiving night and I'm sitting here on my couch watching Beauty & The Beast on ABC Fam in a food coma, I figured there was no better way to kill my time between stuffing my face with turkey and pumpkin pie and waiting til the outlet mall opens at midnight for Black Friday. Anyyywaysssss.. I thought I'd start with my first post being random Thanksgiving spam. Behold:
OPI Ginger Bells! from the Winter 2009 Holiday Wishes collection. A warm pumpkin pie orange creme. I chose this as Thanksgiving mani this year. I just ate pumpkin pie but looking at this polish makes me wants seconds. Nom nom nom.
OPI Dazzled By Gold from the Ulta Exclusive Holiday 2009 collection. This is the best. gold. ever. It's a light gold foil with gold and silver  micro-glitter particles that dazzle and shine like no polish I've ever seen before.
Essie Mink Muffs from the Cuddle With Color Fall 2009 Collection. Hot chocolate on my nails?!?! Yes please!!!
China Glaze Ick-A-Bod-Y from the Awakening Halloween 2010 collection. Murky swamp green jelly densely packed with medium sized bright orange square glitter. Love the name, love the polish. I know it's a Halloween color but I say it works for Thanksgiving too, hence it being in this post. :)
Del Sol Trick-Or-Treat from Halloween 2010. Okay okay, another Halloween polish. But this one works for Thanksgiving too!!! Right?!? Thought so. Anyways, this is a clear base with light orange, lime green, and holo glitter when inside but as soon as the sun hits it, it turns into a deep blackened purple jelly packed with sparkly holo glitter! It's all that and a bag of chips. BBQ chips that is. Moving on..
OPI Holiday Glow also form the  Winter 2009 Winter Wishes Holiday collection. Dark plum brown with gold, silver, and red glitter. This one is Thanksgiving in a bottle to me.
LA Girls Copper. A glowy orange-copper shimmer. This color has fall written all over it. Its so festive and just glows in the sun!
Zoya Richelle. A gorgeous warm copper gold with silver micro shimmer in it.
OPI Los Angeles Latte. See that subtle red shimmer!? Love it :0)
Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure over OPI Shim-Merry Chic again from Holiday Wishes 2009. Shim-Merry Chic is a gorgeous cool shimmery copper with flakies that change from red to orange to green depending on the angle from which you look at it. You can see the flakies really well in the bottle but they aren't as apparent on the nail which is why I topped it off with Hidden Treasure.  Looks like fall leafs! :)

So that's it for my first post. From now on I plan to do one review at a time as opposed random spam like this. The plan is to do nail polish (hence the Acetone) reviews as well as makeup (hence the Kiss). Hopefully I'll acquire some readers and followers along the way so I don't feel like a big loser writing a blog no one reads. If you have any questions/comments about the polishes or just want to get to know me better, feel free to comments or to ask anything! Until next time, Happy Thanksgiving. Gobble gobble. (=>)~ (<-- that's a turkey by the way)



  1. OMG gurrrrrl your nails are b e a utiful!!!!! ;) I'm so glad you've finally decided to start a nail blog you should be a hand model ;)

  2. I was wondering how to make my Shim-Merry Shic's flakies more apparent, & duhhh, a layer of HT does the trick! beautifulllll!

    Yes!! It totally does the trick for any flakie polish. It looks crazy amazing over OPI Merry Midnight too!
