Being the monster cyborg that I am, I love me some Lady Gaga. So I was thrilled when I looked at the Gaga's Workshop by Barney's website to view her nail polishes, strips and press-on's!
The Edge of Glory duo really caught my eye. You can check it out BY CLICKING HERE.
$45 is a LOT to pay for two polishes, especially if one is a black creme. 25% of the proceeds go to the Born this Way foundation, and for a limited time you can get 25% using the promocode MONSTER25. Granted, it IS by Deborah Lippman... but when I checked out swatches of this polish, it looks like a flakie that could be duped in the new Finger Paints collection!
Have you compared them? Would you purchase the Gaga polish set? What do you think?

After Christmas-y things started popping up even BEFORE Halloween, it's about time! Don't get me wrong, it's great giving out gifts to my family and I love that part. But jeez, the holidays can take a lot out of you!
What do you think of the Christmas season? Is it all too much, too little, just right? Does it stress you out too?
Yesterday was my office's Christmas party, which means I actually put effort into how I looked for the day! Pictures of the look and accompanying nails after the jump!

My sludgy eye of the day. Forgive the quality of these pictures, they were taken with my phone but show the colors relatively accurately.
My inspiration today was just looking at the "Comfort Zone" wet'n'wild palette. Besides the fact that I have very warm toned skin, browns and greens bring out the color of my eyes nicely. I thought of sludge and smog and thought it would be cool to try shading the crease area only.
For this look, I used the wet'n'wild Comfort Zone palette for my lid and crease. I will update this post with the exact colors when Im at a computer. Sephora's Peachy Bronze eyeshadow is the brow highlight, and Sephora's black waterproof retractible liner on my upper lid, smudged out. For my lower lid, I used Wet'n'Wild Olive pencil liner. Mascara is LORAC 3D lashes in black.
Pictures are with and without flash, respectively.

Mary at Body and Soul posted the preview (link above) of China Glaze's Magnetix polishes that are coming to stores in 2012!!
I am PUMPED. The olive green on the left-hand side of the display looks gorgeous, and they have (3) different magnets! I've been craving a star magnet, but it is darn near impossible to get your hands on one of the L'ancome magnetic polishes.

Starting this out with my first real blog post - it's pretty simple, but cute, and an easy way to jazz up your hair if you are lazy like me.
This morning, the Christmas tree was going up in my office. I'm a sucker for all things sparkly, so when I saw random threads of tinsel laying around, I couldn't resist putting them in my hair.
See more after the jump!
