2012 Cherimoya Cracked Nail Polish

I don't know where this stuff came from, but it's amazing and definitely compareable to the Shatter collection.  They have several and I mean like 30 to 40 different shades.  I found mine at Walgreens for $2.99!  How inexpensive is that?!  Cheapness excites me.

I got a vibrant violet shade #13.  Applying it is semi-tricky though.  If you lay it on thick, it will not crackle, but that is also what makes it great because a thinner layer will give a great amount of crackle that is also opaque against your base nail color.  I don't know if this goes for all of the shades, but I'm assuming the solid colors will act alike.

I'm wearing Sally Hansen Hard As Nails in Heart of Stone underneath the crackle.

I really think anyone should try these and you can't lose much at $2.99.  If you really don't like it, Walgreens has a lenient return policy.

wet n wild Comfort Zone Palette Review

So yes, I have seen this out for a while, but I already had so many of the wet n wild palettes that I didn't want to buy another one right away.  But I spotted the light shimmery taupe shade in the upper right hand corner and I was like for 5 dollars I'll buy it.  I love that shade so much. 

No Flash
 This whole palette is extremely pigmented.  I can't believe wet n wild's quality for the price.  The day I bought the palette I was at the Estee Lauder counter earlier in the day buying foundation and was testing out their eyeshadows which are so so and disappointing.  Then I buy this, take it home, and open it to find that the shadow quality is superior to what I was just testing (sorry EL). 

None of these shadows are dusty or chalky, they felt a little like UD shadows to me.  Here are the swatches:

With UDPP, Left/Flash, Right/No Flash:

No Primer, Left/Flash, Right/No Flash:

As you can see, not a huge difference at all between the primer swatches and without.  I did a look with this and I wish I took a picture because it looked very mesmerizing.  I'll have to attempt it again and post it.

In the mean time....

This is an outfit I created at Macy's with clearance items, I didn't buy the cherry jacket because I know I'd only wear it once.  I loved the combo I chose, so I had to take a picture.  I love cheap and cute finds.
I want these grandpa shoes from the Material Girl line at Macy's!!!!
Urban Decay sale order.  One of my shadows was missing from the order and they neglected to tell me that it was out of stock.  3 emails and 2 weeks later, I was sent a polite email telling me I'd get my money back.  But I'm sad because that was what I was most looking forward to using. I have the WORST luck with online orders.
Love Aaron from Ghostland Observatory.  These guys are amazing performers.
Look at their laser light show!! Incredibly magical.
