Sunday Series ~ FAIL :(

Posted on: April 30, 2012

I would rather eat dirt than to tell you that my Sunday Series, I just started, this was week #2, was a fail!. I started out great, really loved the color, loved the combination I did with the accent nail but just as I was getting ready for bed I nicked both colors. I cannot stand a nick or chip of any kind. I tried to “fix” the nick by adding contrasting stripes across the top. But that was not good. no beuno!

So, just before I went to sleep I removed it all, added a couple coats of my OPI Nail Envy and called it a fail. 😦
This morning I applied this Barry M Dusky Mauve. Love this!

I am loving the Barry M polishes. This one my friend Tina sent to me. This is a dupe for CHANEL Paradoxal (and also Revlon Naughty). It is a gorgeous gray, purple, brown color that I love so much.

This Barry M polish is amazing. It is a drugstore polish, sold in the UK, comes in great colors. I’ve heard of several CHANEL dupes from this line. When I have on this polish my nails feel so strong. I really hate taking it off! My friend Nic is sending me some more Barry M. She loves the glitter polishes and Deborah Lippmann. Originally I sent her DL Mermaids Dream. This time I sent her some Revlon (dupes for DL) and some of the new Sally Hansen glitter polishes. I feel very fortunate to have such nice friends willing to do trades with me. If you are thinking of doing a swap with someone from the UK, or anywhere, be careful. I have heard horror stories of people being “swap lifted”. That’s where they send off a beautiful package full of nice products and then never hear back from the person. That would break my heart. Luckily, I have no worries!

Back to my Sunday Series, I am 1 for 2. I am disappointed about the For Audrey, but I’ll have to try it again, another day. I will try again this coming Sunday. I’m not sure what polish I will pick, but it won’t be For Audrey!

I absolutely adore your updates on dupes. I love the high end polishes, but more affordable dupes make me SOOOO happy.


LOL @ eat dirt! Stll lov’n your blog!


I’m so glad you like them! The more I look into the Revlon dupes the more I’m convinced they have some sort of deal with CHANEL because the dupes I’ve listed are EXACT. It’s the craziest thing. Anyway, it’s so much fun finding them, because at $26 a pop there aren’t too many CHANEL polishes in my future. Thanks ND! :))


Hi Diane, I’m so glad you like my blog. I think we have the same, twisted sense of humor. I hope you have a great week! :))

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
