Yesterday I spent the bulk of my day swatching nail polish. Bottle after bottle, shade after shade. It's a tough job but somebody's got to do it...
One of the collections I spent some time with was the new Avon Mega Watt neons. Yes, neons! I've said it before, but I think it merits being said again: Avon has really stepped up their game. These are some really great shades with a really interesting formula. Read on for a peek...

I hope everyone had a great (long, if you're Canadian) weekend. I spent mine tearing apart my closet, and then putting it back of course. I headed into my bedroom on Friday to get a bunch of swatching/blog business done, as this blogger is majorly behind on a few things, but I was carting a new tank top and jeans with me. I was going to just plop them on the bed, but thought it would be best to hand them up before a little furry friend decided to take a nap on them. Dark wash denim and white cat fur don't mix all that well. Anyway, when I opened my closet I decided something needed to be done. It's been a straight up disaster since... well, awhile. It made me quiver just thinking about it, but three days later and I've tackled it. I got rid of a bunch of stuff/clothes and found quite a few things I'd completely forgotten about. Even a batch of B&BW candles! Awesomesauce!
Continuing on to what you really want- the beauty. Today's item up for discussion is the Mary Kay Makeup Finishing Spray by Skininavia. Read on!

You likely know how much I love nail polish, but you know what else I love? Nail wraps! The only thing is, I never use them. Whenever I see particularly cute ones, I buy them and add them to my nail drawer. I figure I'll save them for something kind of special. I have at least eight boxes of the Sally Hansen wraps just waiting it out. Why not just use them?
These Kiss Nail Dress arrived in February and I kept adding them to my blog schedule, but I kept breaking nails- that's the other reason that stops me from using wraps more often, I always want to wait until my nails are all perfect, which seems to be a rarity. Last week all my nails were looking good, so I decided it was the perfect time to put these to the test! Read on to see how well they fared.

I think this is the last item I hauled on my most recent Asian cosmetics/skincare binge. See the other posts here, here and here. I initially wasn't going to review this, but the more I used it, the more I liked it, and I decided it was worth a share. Read on!

I love eyeshadow. I really do, but I've been really good and not buying all that much. Well, I had been really good. When I made my last Sephora order (here) I had a hankering for a new palette so I decided to go for it. The problem came when trying to decide which one would be mine.
It was a toughie, but I ended up set on a bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 4.0 and in the end The Happy Place won me over. It's neutral with a twist shades called to me. Want to see more? Read on!

I've got to give to the brains behind Avon. Especially their nail polish team, who clearly haven't had a day off in quite a while. I showed you a preview of the three collections I had to be swatched, and have since gotten a few more. They just don't stop. But, this polish feind doesn't mind one bit, especially not when the shades are as shimmery and fun as these Forbidden Fruit collection. Ready for a look?
