Question of the Week

Newsflash – It’s Friday!!! As if you didn’t notice. 😉

It’s also now officially fall and the last day of September! Which means my favorite holiday is right around the corner!

What is your favorite thing about autumn?

Aside from Halloween, which is my favorite holiday, I love BOOTS! Yes the opportunity to wear boots again makes me a very happy camper. But I haven’t yet been able to because September and October are usually the hottest months in the SF/Bay Area, so it’s been mostly in the 80’s and 90’s all month. Hopefully the weather will turn sunny, clear, cool & crisp soon so I can strap on some corduroy skinny jeans, a huge sweater and BOOTS!

Fright Night Claw Polish for Halloween 2011 Swatches, Photos & Review

Last week I was at Target picking up the requisite new toothbrush and sponges when lo and behold, there on the antacid aisle endcap was Fright Night Claw Polish!

I actually didn’t see it, Mr. VV did (good eyes) so of course I picked ’em up. Who can resist a nail polish in a coffin shape? Not I.

There are two sets that I saw. One was a black with grey and the other a black with red.

Applying these polishes isn’t exactly the easiest thing on earth. The little coffin lid doesn’t pop off to reveal an easier top (like butter London), so you have to hold that awkward shape to paint your nails. Not a huge deal just kinda annoying.

Glitter Gal 3D Holo & Sparkle Nail Polish Swatches, Photos & Review

Glitter Gal Sparkle  3D Holo

More 3D Holo and Sparkle nail polish from Glitter Gal!

All of these have a really nice formula. They are smooth, even and flow like butter. They all cover in two coats perfectly.

But first, let’s check out this incredible close-up of Lizard Belly I caught with my new camera (Canon 7D) and macro lens (Canon EF 100 mm f/2.8 Macro USM)! I don’t even know what I’m doing yet but I am loving it so far. :)
