Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 25

Posted on: June 30, 2013

Mint Me Up by Catrice
For Week 25 of the Nail Polish Lottery Club the random number drawn was 364. I used the number 13, an alternate number. That’s what gave me this Catrice: Mint Me Up. This was sent sent to me by a friend who lives in Germany. I’d been dying to try and there it was #13 on my list of un-trieds.
Mint Me Up is a very soft blue mint color with a golden shimmer/sheen. It seems to have copper pieces of glitter and also some silver pieces of micro glitter. For me Catrice polishes have always been a one coat polish and this one was no exception. They come in bottles of .33ounce, which I think is a perfect size, the brush is smaller a bit pudgier and flatter than most, but I like the brush a lot. I like this polish a lot and wore for a few days. Carla, my friend that sent this to me said in Germany this was supposed to be like butter London’s Two Fingered Salute, which it is nothing like. BL is more green and the copper shimmer is much larger, Mint Me Up is more of a blue green with copper and silver micro glitter.

Mint Me Up is a pretty color for this time of year. I got lots of nice compliments on it and enjoyed wearing it. I was so happy to see this on line 13 for Week 25 of the Nail Polish Lottery Club. I have a few Catrice polish as they are made in Luxembourg. I don’t know where they would be available here except maybe Amazon or Ninja polish. I’ve ordered from Amazon before with no problems but I’ve never ordered from Ninja Polish but I know a lot of people who have and recommend it.
If you have a chance to buy a Catrice polish, I would recommend you do. The few I have are great. The formula is smooth, generally covers with 1coat, dries fast and wears well. I give Mint Me Up 5/5 stars.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 and thanks again to my friend for sending to me.

On a personal note, my Dad’s birthday was June 25th. On June 23rd he had another heart attack, they added 4 more stints to his heart, he was in ICU for 2 days. He was released the 25th and my Mom was admitted with a blockage. The Doctor said he had to operate so they operated and then her lungs filled with fluid and she is on a respirator. My sister called me at 3AM to tell me this, the,day before I start my new job. She was in Washington, DC when they called her. So I went to the hospital and poor MoM, she only weighs about 80 pounds to begin with, she looked pretty frail. But we have been through this before and we will get through this one, it was touch and go, minute by minute all week but I think she is out of the woods now. I’m headed over there to read with her, she can’t talk but I know she likes having me there. I am off work today so it will be a good day. It has really warmed up here and Betty has parked herself in front of the fan, smart girl!
I hope you all have a great week!

πŸ’… As always, thanks for stopping by!

Haute Look for Amazing Deals ~ A Nordstrom Company

HAUTELOOK is a Nordstrom company. They have a return policy that allows you to return items purchased online to be re- turned to their Rack stores. I have never had a bad experience shopping at Nordstrom nor HAUTELOOK. I HGHLY RECOMMEND BOTH STORES. Be sure to go to Hautelook on Monday Dec 1st To see what great deals they will have on butter LONDON polish. Butter LONDON is a mid-priced polish with a high end quality. I'll see you there, bright and early! http://www.hautelook.com/short/3Bg7v

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
