Recent Hauls

I've been so busy with work lately I haven't been able to do a blog post of the stuff I've gotten recently! I got some clearance things a week or so ago along with a LacquerHead polish and cuticle oil. Then I also got some stuff tonight at CVS! Some for me and some for gifts, the gifts I did take pics of though. I love clearance and I hardly ever buy anything full price anymore. Here's the pics from my hauls! By the way, the chocolate cupcake scented polish smells SUPER good.

 Questions from The Blahg!
  1. PETS! Show me! If you don't have one, we can cry together. I mean, tell me what you WOULD like ;)-----I do have a pet, a cute little puppy(She's almost 2 years old but still a puppy to me!)
  2. What got you into painting your nails?----- Not really sure, I've been collecting nail polish since I was 5! A little less than half of my polish is from the 90's. I guess if anything my mom probably got me into it.
  3. What got you into blogging about it?----- After realizing that I had so much nail polish and reading other blogs and seeing pictures from other bloggers, it just kind of clicked that that's what I should be doing. It just felt right. =)
  4. What's your favorite specific polish so far?----- Ohhh this is a tough one. I guess I'd have to say Sinful Colors in UFO. It's just sooooo glittery.
  5. Is there a cause you identify with (cancer, cystic fibrosis, transgender, depression, etc, etc...)? Wanna talk about it?----- Cancer and Suicide awareness. My Great grandma actually just died a few days ago due to lung cancer. =( Also one of my friends when I was in High School killed herself, and the reasons really weren't clear, but she was a dear friend of mine before we went to different schools. I would just like people to be more aware of these things and realize how suicide and illnesses affect others and their families.
  6. What do you (want to) do with your life?----- Honestly I'm not sure. Recently though I had a hankering to maybe be a Nail tech?
  7. M&Ms or Smarties?----- M&M's mmmmm chocolate.
  8. Are you right handed or left handed?----- Right!
  9. What is your first memory?---- I remember when I was maybe 3-4 going around the yard looking for hidden Easter eggs that my parents hid with my doggie Poo Bear.
  10. What's your favorite indie brand polish? If you haven't tried any, which one are you lemming?---- I haven't tried any just yet, but I did already order some from Black Cat Lacquer and LacquerHead polish which should be coming tomorrow!
  11. What is the strangest/most unusual dish you have ever eaten, was it good, and where did it come from (what country is it indigenous to)?----- Uhhh, not really a dish, but I did have some Octopus Jerky that I'm guessing is a snack in Japan? I got it from a little corner Asian store.

And now for Color the world with polish's questions!

1Q32 Instant Gellish BabyQ review

Hello again everyone! Finally got a new computer and had a day off work. I've been waiting a while to be able to do this review since I got it over a week ago. So without further delay lets get to it!

First off I want to say that I've never used Gel before, so this truly was a new experience for me. I have to say though, it was a very good experience. It's super easy to work with, went on smooth and even. Also it doesn't have a bad odor at all (to me anyway) Regular nail polish usually kills me, since I have asthma, but this was fairly easy for me to breath while working with it. Best of all it took less than 5 minutes to complete the full manicure! With virtually no clean up, if you get some on your finger while putting it on you can just wipe it off (I'm messy with everything though so don't mind me). It was also very true to color, from the picture of the color on the bottle as well as the website. The color is vibrant and shiny once cured, even without the Top Q (which isn't exactly needed but I put it on anyway). I pretty much fell in love with this right after putting it on, it was so easy, simple, and took no time at all. It's perfect for beginners, someone that doesn't have a lot of time to do their nails, or just plain awesome for anyone else! Mine came with a very handy instruction sheet with step by step how to.

Here are some pictures of 3 of the steps that I did.

Nice clean nails!

 First coat, made sure to make it very thin.

After two coats, cured and ready to go! This one is without the Top Q top coat.
 After applying and curing with the TopQ top coat. Extra bright and shiny.
