She’s here! And just in time for summer!


(These pictures were pulled from OPI’s website back in March 2012)
This sweet little collection is available now. Distribution is limited and in true Minnie fashion, she won’t be around long. “A lady mouse ne’er overstays her welcome!”. Once she Is gone, she is gone. That’s not to say she won’t come back again, most assuredly in a different outfit, but we never know, with her busy schedule it could be awhile before we see her again.

I do have a limited amount of sets for sale. If you would like the entire collection (full size bottles) the price is $40, which includes shipping for US. At this time I can only ship US. I am working on being able to take international orders.
( But if you know someone that can buy this for you from me, then they can ship to you. )
If you are interested, please let me know.
You can Email me: Judi.Tierney@yahoo.com with any questions.

Or if you’re dying to get your hands on the cutest OPI Minnie Mouse collection ever send $40 (US) Minnie Mouse Collection, C/O ECIS , PO BOX 1630, Lewiston, ID. 83501

**Sorry, but at this time I can not take returns. And orders will be filled first come, first served. And by that I mean first $$ received, will be shipped. Shipping should be within 24 hours of receiving funds. Each package will be packed very carefully to ensure a safe delivery 🙂

CHANEL recently released a collection of limited edition eye shadow and nail polish available exclusively at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. This was in honor of the CHANEL boutique opening in the hotel. The polish is called Gold Fingers. The only review I’ve seen of it was less than positive. The color did not suit her skin tone. Which let’s face it, a gold nail polish is not the easiest of colors to wear. Priced at $28, yes twenty eight dollars, this is a limited edition and won’t be around for long.

Coming out soon, from Revlon is their limited edition Summer 2012 gold nail polish called Gold Coast. I don’t know about pricing, but I’m assuming it will be less than $28.

Also being released by Revlon are limited edition lip glosses, they look very similar to CHANEL lip glosses. I don’t own any CHANEL lip gloss so I won’t be able to tell you if they are similar, but I’m pretty sure they are!

20120324-203648.jpgthis Revlon’s “Teak Rose” in lipstick and nail polish. My newest obsession!


I used to think that matching nail polish and lipstick was so old fashioned.. But, I guess when you are as old as I am, old fashioned is okay. I happen to like the look of matching nail polish with lipstick. I have googled the subject extensively, with not so much in the results department. But then there is Revlon. Does it get any more ‘old fashioned’ than Revlon?. Looking through my stash I found the Teak Rose combo I am wearing now and I found this little gem,

This little beauty is ‘Cherries in the Snow’. Gorgeous, to say the least, AND there is a matching polish just waiting for me to pick up at my local Shopko store. Since I have 9 more days of self imposed “no-buy nail polish” (for Lent), I will wait to match these 2 little cupcakes of cuteness together. I can hardly wait! The last time I was in Shopko, which was Thursday, there was only one of the polishes left. It was a struggle to leave it there and NOT buy it, but I did. I’m sure it will be there when I go to actually buy it. Oh, did I mention I hid it? Yes, I did. Hide it, that is. Where? I’m not sayin’ – just in case. For a split second I thought about shoplifting it, because that would not break my Lenten promise of not to ‘buy’ nail polish. Somehow though I thought that just might be pushing it!

(This picture makes me happy, so I included it. If you have to ask who that is, well then maybe you should be reading a different type of blog!
I must tell you all that I did buy a nail polish. I know, I know, but sometimes these great deals come along and you have to jump on them. I had an opportunity to purchase a CHANEL Jade Rose polish at a VLoG sale for a great price. The beautiful Lori, (YouTube name ll42863) had a sale on her channel. I also bought a blush and lipstick, all CHANEL. $80 for all 3 items and shipping. CHANEL polish is now $26, blush around $50-55 and lipsticks are from $24 and so you can see why I had to do it. Sometimes a girls gotta do, what a girls gotta do! I will definitely do a video when I receive and I’m sure a NOTD will be posted to honor the newest CHANEL polish to my little collection. Do you also want to see pictures of the other items? Just let me know. thanks everyone!

This my NOTD, my take on the summer trends from Allure Magazine, for the lilac and muted teal trends.

In my previous post I listed the top five nail trends for this summer, according to Allure Magazine. #2 on the list is lilac. They included photos of Essie To Buy or Not To Buy

20120323-113206.jpg. They also listed polishes from Laura Mercier “Lavender Cloud” and “Aurora” from Dolce & Gabbana. I could not find photos of either one of these on the manufacturer’s websites. I don’t know if they are older colors or if the websites are not updated. .?
For the muted teal trend, #4, Allure cited Estée Lauder Teal Topaz, L’Oreal Now you Sea Me

And from LeMetier de Beaute Aurora

I did not find a price on the LeMetier de Beaute polish but let’s just say expensive. This line is expensive. It’s a line that when I win the lottery I will buy everything it has to offer. It’s that pretty!

Do you like my take on the summer trends? Do you like my half and half choice? Like I said, I’ve never seen anyone do this manicure, I don’t know what else to call it. Any suggestions would be welcomed! Thanks so much! XoXo
