Toxic Shore got destroyed pretty quickly. One hour of cleaning out my car, and done. But that just meant I got to play around again that night!

Check out magna-crackle after the jump.

Being that I had a few days off, I was able to indulge in some experiments! Check 'em out after the jump.

Plaid About You - Day 5!

After (5) days of training, work, having my hands submerged in water a lot, cleaning up after kittens and cleaning in general, this is what "Plaid About You" looks like...

Gaga's Workshop - Edge of Glory Duo

Good afternoon!!
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?

Holiday Robots

Hello all! Christmas is finally upon us, and personally I can't wait for it to be over.
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!

Perplex Cuts Above

Time for my first polish post! I was really happy with the way this manicure turned out, especially since I was falling over with sleepiness while I was doing it.

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.

Body and Soul - China Glaze Magnetix Preview!

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.
Thanks Mary!!

Cute Holiday Hair Idea

Good morning!
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!

Coming Soon!

A real post! Hang in there (please)!
