NOTD: L’Oreal pink carat ~ Let’s All Wear Pink!

Posted on: October 10, 2012

I love this polish! The more I use L’Oreal polishes the more I like them. I got this one a couple days ago to add to my pink stash, as I am planning on wearing pink polish for the whole month of October. You all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. It’s just my small way to give back and to honor those fighting this terrible disease and especially to honor those who have lost their battle.😑
Although I think this manicure looks beautiful the formula was one of those goopy yet runny at the same time. Until you come across that type of formula you won’t know what I’m talking about, but it would come off the brush in a clump and then pool onto the sides of the nail. Since I’ve had this happen before I was able to get a great manicure with little effort. This is why this polish did not get 5/5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟and only got 4 in my comparison study.
But I think my nails look great and I think this a great pink. What do you think?

I don’t know why I felt I needed another pink, since I already have enough pinks to wear a different one each day this month and on into November! But I do like it and I’m happy to add it to my collection.

One of the first swaps I did with my friend Diana, who lives in London, she put in this little kit of nail polish and all the proceeds went to cancer research. She knew I feel passionate about such causes so she was kind enough to get this for me. I will definitely be wearing these polishes in the days to come. Anytime I see something with proceeds going for research, I do what I can to support such efforts.
But, enough about that, I could go on and on and I probably have. I want to know what colors pink you are wearing this month? Have you found any limited edition make up items with proceeds going for BCA and/or research? Tell me about them in the comments below.

As always, thanks for stopping by and I promise I will get back to the count down tomorrow. We are at the top 3! All 3 of these polishes received 5/5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 to me that is exciting!

Just one last reminder, I have 1 of these sets left, proceeds go to BCA and I will pay for the shipping, to anywhere in the world. $15 for 2 OPI nail polishes. You Glitter Be Good to Me and I Think in Pink. The tops have the pink ribbon logos on them. Please let me know if you are interested in this last kit! Thanks so much!

The L’Oreal shade is so beautiful! I am currently enjoying OPI’s “Got a date to-knight”, alternating with “You callin’ me a lyre?”.
I find the OPI duo very interesting and have not seen it in my country. Could we arrange for me to receive it if someone else did not beat me to it?


No one has beat you to it, so It can be yours. Do you have a pay pal address? I can PayPal you and will ship immediately upon receiving payment.

Is their any other OPI or china glaze you want? The new Skyfall collection is here and I can get you any of those. I am getting Casino Royale, on her majesty’s service, moon raker, skyfall and live and let die. They are all gorgeouse and so different from anything I’ve seen OPI do. You can do a google image search if you haven’t seen them yet. They are $8 each plus shipping.

Let me know what you want, if any thing, besides the little pink kit, which is really pretty, btw. Thanks so much, talk to you tomorrow,


This month I’m wearing Bourjois No Chips in 13, a very sheer shimmery pink.


That sounds really pretty!

Is one of them going to be Venique?


Thanks! I really like this Bourjois sheer pink. Looks pretty classy and understated. πŸ™‚
Best of all it doesn’t show wear as much as stronger colours would.
Looking forward to your winners!


Yes! I’ll post a NOTD, I have Venique on right now. πŸ™‚

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
