a few matters to discuss

Did you know that Martha Stewart has been struck by lightening three times?

Is that not just the craziest thing you’ve ever heard?


You must know you have terrible luck if you’ve been struck by lightening, not once, not twice,

but three times!!

I find this very odd & just had to share with you. 

I picked up “Ladylike” by Essie on Monday night.

Once I saw all of the colors of the Fall 2011 collection in person, I had no clue which one to get!

I’m very pleased with “Ladylike.”

It’s a mauve-nude with the slightest hint of plum you can imagine. 

Now that I’ve worn the polish for a couple days, I’ve noticed that sometimes it looks more tan, sometimes more pink, sometimes more purple.

Either way, I love it and will be going back for “Glamour Purse” next  😉

I used this new top coat by Sally Hansen, which I’m obsessed with.

I’ve heard awesome reviews on it and it has definitely lived up to the hype!  In my opinion, it’s way better than Essie, OPI, and Seche Vite.

It allowed my nails to dry in about a minute or two, which is HUGE for me.  (I always lose my patience when waiting for nails to dry ..end up touching something & get a giant smudge across my nails.)  With this new top coat, this issue won’t happen anymore because it hardens your polish so quickly.

Also, won’t you take a look at my handsome man?

I’ll let him rock the mustache wine opener, as long as he keeps giving me these…

Hey, I’m easy to please 🙂

    Ok that is crazy about Martha. I thought people usually died if they were struck by lightening. Love that Essie color. I've got Sand Tropez on right now and they look similar. And adore black and brown together. Xo

    I love that color! It's lovely. And that is crazy news about Martha Stewart…

    I love Essie colors. I just read in BHG that Essie is a real person. She's adorable and I'm obsessed with her colors.

    That's crazy bizarre about Martha Stewart. I'm also a diehard Essie polish + Sally Hansen Quick Dry topcoat fan. That stuff is amazing! I put a coat on every 2 days or so and my mani doesn't chip till I take it off. 🙂

  15. September 1, 2011 / 3:31 am

    That is pretty crazy about Martha. I have been dying to try the new Essie colors!

    Struck by lightening? Twice? What the heck? Poor old lady, that's so sad. Her dog also died in a fire. It sounds like she has horrible luck 🙁

    Ok, I had to report back. Went to Target last night and picked up Ladylike. It does have mauve in it and I love it! I can't wait to try it out!

  18. September 1, 2011 / 2:51 pm

    Struck by lightning 3 times?!?!?!
    No ways, that is crazy!! She is clearly one very lucky lady!

  19. September 2, 2011 / 12:21 am
