Revlon 2012 Holiday Collection- Just Add Sparkle

I’ve been MIA when it comes to new additions to my collection because I’ve been so busy with a new puppy and dealing with my boyfriends hurt back, so today when I was at Wegmans to pick up a frozen dinner before work, I was super excited to find the entire collection on an aisle end cap. I’ve been wanting to see this in person ever since I saw Nouveau Cheap’s and Gotham Polish’s posts on it, so it completely made my Monday!  I am obviously a nail polish addict, but there is a special place in my heart for glitter nail polishes so I obviously ended up buying all four. I was very tempted to purchase the eye shadows and lip glosses too, but it’s not in the budget right now.  The eye shadows also resembled the Color Stay and Diamond Eye Shadows from Revlon which I already have, so I couldn’t justify it.  The four new colors for Holiday 2012 are pictured below, along with the display for anyone who wants to keep an eye out in their local store.

Midnight Sparkle, Sequins, Brilliant Bordeaux, and Ruby Slippers. 

ImageI’m super excited to try these out because despite having over 30 glitter and glittery polishes, I don’t have any quite like these. I will definitely be posting swatches and a review soon! 




Forget broken nails…

Thanks to a nasty fall while weightlifting at his work gym yesterday, my boyfriend messed up his back big time and has some herniated disks…and can’t go to the bathroom or do much of anything on his own for a few days.  Given this amazing guy took great care of me after I got in a horrible car accident in March, I’m totally willing and happy to help him… including dragging him kicking and screaming (well, more like flinching and screaming) to the orthopedic surgeon’s office this morning. However, not going to lie, I’m a little nervous about having to help him go to the bathroom… showering, fine, cleaning, cooking laundry…well honestly I do most of those things anyway.  But helping a grown man take care of business…well, I guess I knew moving in together would result in a bit less mystery in a relationship…just not that much!

On the upside, on the way to the doctor today, he complimented my manicure (a white jelly sandwich with multi-colored glitter) and noted how all the drugs he was on made the holographic sheen of the pearl white color look even cooler.  It’s the little things, right??
