Butter London Pearly Queen

Now I had never heard of Butter London before I came across this polish. I came across this polish in a blog sale and thought it was a pretty color and for $4...you can't beat that. After I bought it, I looked up the brand and found out that the polishes cost $14. Yes $14. So I got a real good deal for this polish.

This is a pearly white and looks so clean on my fingers, if that makes sense I love it so much that I wore it twice in a row. This took two coats. This will definitely NOT be my last Butter London. On 9/20, Ulta is having a sale on Butter London, buy 1 get 1 FREE. Plus you can use the $3.50 off any purchase of $10 or more. You know what that mean...I have mine picked out so expect some posts on those in the future. You can purchase them on their website or on Ulta's website.

A England Excalibur

A England is a nail company in the UK that has wonderful polishes. I am excited to say that I won this polish on A England's facebook page 2 weeks ago. Excalibur is a metallic silver. This is part of the collection called THE MYTHICALS.                     

This polish is so great that it's a one coater. This would be perfect for stamping. I will have to test that theory out soon. You can buy their polishes on http://www.a-england.co.uk/ . Also go check out their FB page.

The best black polish ever....China Glaze Liquid Leather

Today I have for you, China Glaze liquid leather. This is the perfect black. It is so creamy...if you can describe a polish like that. On my nails it definitely looks like liquid.

Makes me want to drink it...lol...well not really but you get my point. I love the look of black polish on my nails.

China Glaze For Audrey

Ive had this lovely for about almost a year now. I heard about this specific color on YouTube and just had to have it. Luckily they had just one left at Sally's. This color is a robin's egg blue...it's suppose to resemble the trademarked "Tiffany blue "color.

To me, this is like a pop of color on my brown skin. This makes my hands stand out so I loooovvvveee wearing this color...even on my toes. This is a color I would keep a back up of soooo off to Sally's I go. :) But not until Friday because I just received my 15% off next purchase coupon in the mail yesterday.

Onto a non polish subject, this is a picture I took two days after Hurricane Irene swooped through. Our power was off for 2 days and with a five year old that's a little difficult to deal with because I had to keep him occupied constantly...so there was a lot of construction paper and gluesticks involved.
But this is the morning after. The neighbors tree fell...luckily not towards the garage/mini living room. The roots ripped the fence up into the air and the tree damaged some more of the fence behind the garage. But Hurricane Irene left behind a lot of deaths and damages and I pray for all the families involved and hope everyone can come together in this time of need and help one another.
