May Favorites Video

Hey everyone!

Thought I would start a new video series called monthly favorites. This will include products I have been using the previous month that I really like. They aren’t necessarily new products or nail related, but I thought this would be fun! You can see them below. Please subscribe to my YouTube channel if you haven’t yet, more fun things to come!

    Ok so I am totally getting those nail polishes and that TT liner. Where did you get the ring on your right hand? Really like it and don’t know if you blogged about it before.

    Keep the vids coming!

      HI marisol,

      Yay so glad you watched it! The quality of the damn video totally degraded when I uploaded it, gotta check that out.

      That ring was from Macy’s, Mr. VV got it for me and matching earrings and necklace last year for Xmas.

    Now that life is back to normal (no more out of town guests) I am reading blogs & will be commenting again. Now were your cats fighting because only one of them got some video love? hee hee

      Hi marisol,

      Haha. No Chewy is sometimes a bully and he had Squirt cornered. Turds! :) I told them they would all be featured eventually!

    Thanks for your tips. Love your big baby SammyCat. I am definitely going to get those nubar base and top coat. Love the shadows too.

    thank you for taking the time to make this video.

      Hi leigh anne,

      Glad you liked it! :)

    AAAAAAAAH! So fun to see you “in person!” I am sooooo getting that Too Faced Shadow Insurance when my Benefit FY eye (saldy, now discontinued) runs out. I have been using Nubar base & topcoat for a few months since discovering on your site (thank you!). Those Benefit shadows look amazing….the texture sounds wonderful to work with. The TT liner, too….. Will check out next time I’m at Sephora. Honestly, though, the best thing about the video was the random cat fight & seeing you snuggle with your Sam. :-) I have a cat & she always seems to do funny things at the weirdest times. Have an awesome weekend!
    p.s. Got BOTH the new MAC polishes “In The Buff” & “Scorcher” loving!!!

      HI SB_Sweetie,

      Glad you liked it! Yeah unless I lock the cats out there is bound to be some “issue” hahaha! I SO need to get In The Buff this weekend!

  • May 28, 2010

    Just over on Sephora’s website….there’s a new?! color with the Havana Nights Collection called “Midnight Mambo.” Kind-of a cornflower blue version of “Worth My Weight.” Holo & glitter galore. It jumped into my basket!! I think you will really like MAC’s “In The Buff,” it’s right up your alley. “Scorcher” is unique, maybe jelly-ish? Anyway, I’m convincing myself that it’s unique since I just paid $12 for it and I have a zillion coral reds. Can you say “obsessed?” The MAC stuff is selling out REALLY fast, so get out there this weekend if you want to grab it. I think shipping is free on MAC online right now, too.

    sorry that last comment was very off-topic…

    I like your last favourite- the kitty! =)

    Nice video, I really like these. I completely understand the cat fight thing, that goes on daily between my cats. I need to pick up that liner, it’s really pretty and I used to have a similar shade but I have no idea where it is now. I’ve always wanted to try Nubar’s base and top coats. Do you know where to buy them and how much they are?

    • May 28, 2010

      Hi Serena,

      Nubar is available online at I think they are around $12.00 for both.

  • May 28, 2010

    it was great seeing you in person. Great segment-looking forward to June’s Favs. I’m gonna check out that shadow primer and those shadows-I’ve never used Benefit shadows before-they look really nice. Loved that ring- i love really big rings.
    Sammy-cat is so cute-thanks for adding him in at the end- even though he didn’t look too happy about it:)

  • May 28, 2010

    Lovely little video, gonna check out the Too Faced primer too! Thanks!!H

    Can’t wait for the next one and loving Sammy… He’s too adorable. xx

  • May 29, 2010

    Lovely video! Loved it! The cats fight was funny to hear. LOL And you finally smiled, when the cats started to “fight”. 😉 Thanks for the video. I have to try the Nubar base and top coat! I’ve been reading a lot of great reviews about them, so… I guess it’s time to try them out…

    I absolutely adore the kitty (but seriously, what’s with that cattitude lol)! The problem with living in Europe is that we don’t get a lot of American products here and it drives me insane! Believe it or not, I had to stock up on Skippy because they don’t eat peanut butter here, and that’s just one of my many woes. I’ve been drooling over Nubar base/top coat ever since I read about them here, but I ended up having to resort to OPI, which is the only brand of high-end nail polish available here. Would love to see an eye makeup tutorial from you sometime soon!

    Enjoyed the video Kelly!

    Loved the vid! They sell double sided crystal nail files at Head2Toe Beauty!! That’s where I got mine. I love it! :) Here’s the link. they’re about 3/4 down the page.

  • May 29, 2010

    Love the video; might have to get some of that facial wash that you spoke about! How does it compare to Cetaphil (if you’ve ever used that before!) Thanks for doing this and keep them coming! Also I really like that shirt/color that you’re wearing in the video! It looks REALLY good on you!! And lastly, LURVE the kitty!!!!!!!! :)

    • May 29, 2010

      Hi Kristen,

      It’s very similar to Cetaphil, but it seems to be better at moisturizing my skin. I have used Cetaphil for years but when I was having the dry skin issue, it wasn’t helping.

    Hi Kelly:

    I loved your video, about nail polish top coats and make-up. It’s was nice to see the other side of woman’s make-up and what you like to present. Your presentation was beautiful. You have a great gift being on video. Can’t wait to see what you plan on showing next, your great!

    I use Sephora Fast Drying Nail Polish Drops, and wondered if you ever used them, (or maybe I have mentioned them to you and forgot your answer) anyway, I find that if I use a top coat for the colored polish tends to smear if not allowed to dry enough. With the drops, the polish is sealed and dries and bonds all the coats together really fast. Then, I use a top coat with a diamond hardener about 5-10 minutes later and it seems to work out well for me.

    I remember Diamond Cosmetics’ contest and their Teal Toes campaign. I beleive this is the first time I found your web blog and so glad I did. Love your cat Chewy and didn’t realize he is so BIG! LOL

    Have a nice weekend,

    ((((Love Kelly))))

    It’s fun to see that you’re diving into the realm of YouTube. Can’t wait to see your next monthly favourites. And I love watching YouTube videos where there are interruptions (like with your cat…haha). Makes it more real.

    I agree with you on Nubar Diamont. It’s absolutely the best top coat that I’ve ever used, and my bottle of Seche Vite remains in a box completely neglected. As for Nubar Foundation, I’m about to try it. Have high expectations for it.

    How did you manage to keep such a straight face whilst saying “Nice Melons”? LMAO at the catfight too. Love the video – it’s nice to hear about more than nail varnish. Your make-up looks flawless too :)

      Hi Helen,

      Ha, good question! The cat fight was so typical, Chewy is always going around harassing Sam & Squirt. :)

  • May 30, 2010

    I am so glad that you do a voice for your cat too.

  • May 31, 2010

    Hi I think it’s a great idea that you’re making these videos not only about nail polish because U seems to have also great taste in make up! I’m looking forward to watch the next ones.
    Ps : what eyeshadow are you wearing on the may video? It seems kind of yellow/green, it’s purtyy.

      Hi marilou,

      Thanks! I am wearing a few pigments made by a fellow blogger in Sweden. Her stuff is called Brite Bird, if you Google it, you’ll find it. She ships everywhere and the colors are awesome!

  • June 1, 2010

    I really enjoyed the video!

  • June 1, 2010

    I love your video! What great products and I learned alot about the Benefit shadows which I’m seeking after work today! Loved your control when the cats were misbehaving – that’s what they always do – gotta cause a commotion – lol! I love Sammy – he’s just way too cool! I’m looking forward to more of your videos.

  • June 2, 2010

    Hi kelly! love your vid!! but u look angry when u dont smile! haha

    • June 2, 2010

      Hi Michelle,

      Yeah I’ve been getting that my entire life. I am not a naturally smiley person though. I would look like a freak if I fake smiled through the entire video!

  • June 6, 2010

    Just got around to watching your videos and really enjoyed them. I look forward to seeing more. May I ask what blush you’re wearing in this video? I love the look of your makeup here.

    • June 7, 2010

      Hi Paula,

      I believe I was wearing Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach blush in that video. It’s a really pretty soft peach!
