Buxom Winner Takes All for Holiday 2014

Buxom Winner Takes All

Buxom Winner Takes All for Holiday 2014 is a 6-piece Mini Full-On Lip Polish & Lip Cream Collection. Whew, that’s a mouthful!

These glosses give you that tingling, plumping (not really) effect that you may love or hate. I usually am not a fan of tingling glosses but these are on the mild side and it dissipates pretty quickly, so they don’t bother me. Three of these have a shimmery finish and three have a cream finish. They all come with a festive gold cap and gold logo on the tube.

Deborah Lippmann Fantastical Collection

The Deborah Lippmann Fantastical Collection for Holiday 2014 has arrived at VV HQ!

This limited edition collection consists of six new shades that you might not expect in a holiday collection. Indeed, it’s a nice departure from the standard reds, greens, golds and silvers we see so much of. Three of these are saturated shimmers and three are glitters featuring various types and sized glitter.

Nail of the Day – A Great Holiday Look!

Misa Blueberry Blast with NOPI Stars At Night

The other day I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and saw a manicure that Victoria from Manicurator did. I fell in love with it and wanted to create something similar.

I was in the mood to wear a super light sky blue so I picked Misa Blueberry Blast as the base shade. Then I decided to try out Nicole by OPI Stars at Night over it, which is a holographic confetti glitter in a clear base. I just dabbed Stars at Night on the outsides of the nail, leaving the center clear of the glitter. Then I added a second coat of the confetti glitter and topped it off with Glisten & Glow HK Girl Quick Dry Top Coat.

Happy Veterans Day

Veterans day badge

Today in the USA is Veterans Day, which is a day to honor all those who have served in the armed forces.

Many people in the US confuse Veterans Day with Memorial Day which annoys me, so let’s clear this up. Memorial Day honors those who have died serving their country. Veterans Day honors those who are still alive. You can celebrate Veterans Day and say “Happy Veterans Day” but please don’t go around saying “Happy Memorial Day” because that’s like saying “Happy funeral!”

Having said all that I would like to say Happy Veterans Day to Mr. VV who served in the Air Force for eight years. :)
