50 Shades of Sunday ~ U R Fab by MUA

Posted on: October 14, 2012

For those of you new to my blog, welcome! This is a series I do every Sunday. It’s where I use a polish from my collection that I have never worn, for whatever reason. It’s a way for me to use my polish, not just look at it, but wear it. I hope this inspires you to take a look at your collection and maybe wear one you haven’t. You’d be surprised at the gem you might find!

This is U R Fab from MUA. MUA is a brand only available in the UK. This was sent to me by my friend Nicky. Thank you Nicky! I love this color of pink, and this was 1 coat!

These are little mini bottles, less than a quarter ounce, they are fashioned after the Valentine’s Day candy hearts that have messages of love on them. Really cute. They are called Love Hearts. I think I’ve never worn this before because the bottle is so cute. I have it displayed on top of my nail polish rack, where I keep all the ‘cute’ bottles.

As you all know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I am wearing pink polish for the month. I have a lot of pink polish because it is my favorite color. It’s been hard to find a pink for this series because the idea is to wear a polish in my collection that I’ve never worn. I do have a couple more pinks I’ve never worn, but for good reason. This one is so pretty and I’m sure I will wear it often.💗

This is my daughter Jilly and her BF, Bryan. They are in Seattle this week end. Bryan bought Jilly tickets to see the play Wicked for her birthday. They are having a great time staying at the Paramount Hotel in downtown Seattle. My dad has an “interest” in the hotel so he has hooked them up. They don’t know it yet, but when they go to check out they are in for a surprise!
🗻 I love Seattle! I lived there while in my 20’s and loved every minute of it. There is no place more beautiful than Seattle on a clear day. If you are planning a trip to Seattle be sure to check out the Paramount Hotel. It is a beautiful hotel built about 12 years ago. It has a great sushi restaurant on the premises and a cocktail lounge. Located on Pine Street, it is minutes away from Nordstrom’s flagship store and so much more great shopping. Also close to the Pike Place Market. I can’t wait to hear all about Jilly and Bryan’s trip, I’m sure they had a blast.

This is a picture of the tickets he got for her, they were in a pickle birthday card. I call Jilly pickle, pick, or picky. So cute that Bryan chose that card for her.💗

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

Hi Muriel, my favorite top coat is Seche-Vite Dry Fast Top Coat and I like butter London’s P D Quick Topcoat as well. Thanks for asking and thanks for watching/ reading. I appreciate the support. — Judi


Thank’s Judi for your quickly answer !!!
I have SECHE VITE, but it becomes very thick half bottle …
At the beginning it was perfect, but now I’m three quarters,
it is increasingly difficult to apply !
I put all my polish in the fridge and I think they are best preserved.
What do you think about that?
Thank you for your kindness !!!


I have heard about that, Deborah Lippmann says she stores all her polish in the fridge and she would know if anyone would! The Seche-Vite gets goopy on me too, but I just go ahead and use it. It smooths out in the nail so it’s never really bothered me. They do make a thinner for it, I hear that works good. 🙂

very good idea !
I’ll put thinner !
I have one in my fridge
thank’s Judi !!


I just tried MAVALA Thinner (Swiss brand)
miracle !
my Sèche Vite lipid is back !
thank’s Judi !!


Oh good, I’m glad it worked for you! You are lucky you have Mavala brand. I think it is a great brand but I can’t find it here, it used to be at Nordstrom but they quit carrying it years ago. Enjoy!


Yes we have MAVALA which is very good brand,
but you haveso many other fantastics US brands !!!!


Lovely nails as always!
I love Seattle too, had a great time there when I was on holiday, hopping over to Vancouver.
Hope they had a fabulous weekend!
I use Seche Vite’s thinner and it works great.


Seattle is a great city as is Vancouver. When I lived in Seattle in the 70’s we went to Vancouver for week ends a lot, LOVE that city! I’ve never used the thinner because I just use the goopy SV and deal with it, but I’m glad to know it works for you. 🙂

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
