by String Theory – A Review

Ordering A completely random search (for ‘blood’, I think) turned up this shop.  I was instantly sucked in by the geeky theme and the amazing sparkle.  I’m like a magpie that way.  The pictures were nice and clear and included the polish actually on nails, which is a major plus for me.  Each listing includes […]

Beautiful Girl

After searching online for polish colors a friend of mine ran across Beautiful Girl from Sinful Colors.  To be honest, I was surprised I didn’t already have it.  Running into Walgreens (conviently located next to Fresh & Easy) I ran across the shade and picked up the last two bottles (one for me, one for […]

Broken Ice

Imagine my surprise when I saw the Pure Ice display at Walgreens the other day.  Apparently they are making crackle top coat now, too.  I’ve never had good luck with Pure Ice polishes, they are sort of thin and weak.  It normally takes a couple of good coats for opaque coverage and even then it […]

While black is a wardrobe staple for many women, its appearance on fingertips may be a touch too moody for personal or workplace tastes. That’s why this fall’s popular polishes are so fantastic: the muted shades of putty, gray and […]

Holo-Sweet

I finally ran across the Milani 3D Holographic Nail Polishes yesterday, after having been looking for them for a while.  I was looking for an inexpensive alternative to the 12.50$ Nfu-Oh Holos that I love so much. The display was picked over.  While the store had several colors, they were obviously used, the bottles a […]
