Post Christmas Haul!!

I will post a Christmas Haul soon but for now I have a December 27th shopping haul! On the 26th,I was at my grandma's house where they got 4 inches of snow at least. So the shopping had to wait! First up, the collective picture. We went to Target, Bath and Body Works, and Sally's.
Now for the individual stuff. At Target, I got a lemming!!
ESSIE LICORICE!!!!! I have needed a black polish to use as a base! Especially with BL The Black Knight!! At Bath and Body Works, I picked up 3 items.
This Twisted Peppermint ScentPortable refill was only 2 dollars! Why not right?
This Warm Vanilla Sugar Fine Fragrance Mist was only 5 dollars since the packaging of WVS was redesigned. I hadn't replaced my mist yet, so I went ahead and picked this up :)
This Penguin Snow Globe Mirror was something I hadn't bought and just had to get! I believe it was 50% off but I don't remember the exact price. At Sally's I picked up 2 different items that caught my eye.
After much internal debate, I decided to get this glitter top coat from Seche. It has silver bar glitter, along with a few different sizes of silver hex glitter.
The last thing that I got was this extremely small China Glaze polish. It is smaller than the mini size. It is in the color Ruby Pumps and it is a gorgeous red. That is the damage beauty wise! I might get more things soon, we shall see! Christmas Haul coming soon!

That Didn't Work Out So Well!

Hi Guys! I'm writing to let you all know that I pretty much dropped the nail art challenge. I just lost interest in doing horrible looking manis LOL. I've been even more tired than usual since I've been staying up later at night. I'm planning on posting my polish hauls from here on out, along with some others. I might post a mani on occasion, but I'm not an artsy person. I usually just paint my nails a solid color. I may use glitter as a top coat, but that is the most artsy I am. Jennifer

Day 7- SMYTC

Before I get down to business, I cried as I watched parents let their children be interviewed by reporters. They have had enough trauma. My heart goes out to the people in CT. Time for Day 7. Snowmen, which are difficult to paint.
I used my black and white nail art pens, along with OPI Last Minute Shopper. Check out everyone else's manis!!

Show Me Your Topcoats Day 6

My mani is about the elements of a Christmas tree. My thumb is a glittery ball ornament(CC Gingerbread and black nail art pen/striper duo), my pointer finger is silver garland (All That Glitters Space Rock), my middle finger is an icicle ornament (white nail art pen/striper duo), my ring finger is gold garland (Julep Sienna), and my pinkie is and candy cane (my snowman base polish and white nail art pen/striper duo)
Excuse my non existent clean up job! Taking this off in 2 minutes LOL Check out the other manis!

Show Me Your Topcoats Nail Art Challenge Day 4

Day 4! I was at a loss for what to do. I decided that a jingle bell would work best.
I used my thumb nail as my accent nail. I used Julep Oscar and Julep Ursula to make the bell. Kelara Laquers Mars was my base polish. So this turned out halfway decent. Check out everyone else's manis!

Day 3 Snowflakes

Time once again for the SMYTC Nail Art Challenge.
I used Orly French Tips as my base and used Windestine Asbestos on top (even though it doesn't pick up very well on camera) With this mani, my idea was much better than my execution. Check out everyone else's manis!!

Another great giveaway!

As my no buy continues, I found another great giveaway!

This giveaway is for Lynns (Lynnderella!) Oh Three Oh Four is putting on this awesome giveaway!! I really, really want a Lynn! One day left!

Monday, October 15, 2012


As I am on a nail polish no buy (I have stuff on the way!), I've spent a little too much time looking for awesome giveaways! I'm going to share some in this post.

 The first 2 are from The Rosy Snail. She is having a Zipz shoe giveaway and a Beauty Blockbuster Palette giveaway. The Zipz one ends on the 27th and the Palette ends on the 23rd. The Zipz are something I'm putting on my Christmas list if I don't win. I am literally the worst at finding shoes to go with my outfit and having interchangeable shoes might help. As for the Palette, a girl always needs makeup. The rafflecopter links are going to be below.

As for the 3rd giveaway, Love for Lacquer is giving away a 25 dollar ULTA gift card for her 1 year blogiversary. I don't need to explain how much crap I (or you!!) can buy at ULTA!!! Post linked below!

A Better Intro To My Life

So I never really introduced myself properly to you guys! So I'm Jennifer (as my readers know) and I am an 18 year old college freshman majoring in Journalism. My main beauty interests are nail polish and Bath and Body Works products. I'm also interested in home fragrance in the form of candles and wax tarts/melts. I usually get  the Julep Maven box, and I will blog about nail mail, home fragrance mail, beauty mail, my Maven box and various hauls. I might blog about my manis and pedis. I might accidentally say vlog instead of blog because I used to make YouTube videos. I love Twitter!! @Jkitty107 is my main Twitter. I just made a Facebook fanpage

So that's me! Anything else? Just ask!! :)
