- everything in one -

Okay, so it has been a while since I have posted anything really worth reading, I have been working on updating the design of my blog and it's taken some time for me to finally feel content with the way it looks. I probably changed my header 8 times and made way too many link buttons and finally settled with the ones above.

Lets see how long it lasts!

I had been wanting to write a post about the Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Nail Polish I bought in Mint Sorbet because It kind of shocked me how much I don't like it. I don't purchase a lot from Sally Hansen, but I have heard a lot of good about the brands Nail Polish. I had been looking for Mint Sorbet for quite a while but usually it is sold out, this time it wasn't, and it was on sale so I purchased it. What I don't like about it is the formula and the brush. I think the brush is an awkward size and it makes it hard to get good coverage of the nail without it starting to look streaky and uneven. It does dry quickly, but on the second day it had already chipped. Lets just say, I won't be purchasing the brand anymore unless I see a color I don't already have.

I also purchased a few products from Wet N Wild. 4 lipsticks, one which isn't shown because the bagger at my local grocery store forgot to put it in the bag (not again!) and 1 nail polish. I already figured I would love the nail polish because I have 3 others that always turn out great, this one, was just as I expected. The lipstick that isn't pictured was a deeper red, I really bought these because I had read some good things about them and also because I wanted to test out some colors on my skin tone. So far the bright red pictured is my favorite, I wasn't really thinking about wearing that pink, it reminds me of Nicki Minaj, Im pretty sure I just bought it because I thought it looked pretty. I will probably end up mixing it with a different color to work better with my skin.

On another note:

Last week I got sick, and for some reason I still have some sort of cough, it's not a cough accompanied by a sore throat, its more of an annoying tickle in my throat that doesn't want to go away!

The best thing that has happened this weekend was my boyfriend telling me that he might get an early out from his enlistment and might be able to come home in November! I can't begin to describe how happy I am about it, at the same time I feel nervous or something of that sort, it's definitely going to be different having him here. I wasn't expecting him to get out till late February or March and November is right around the corner. This might have changed things for my Kittehn, I may be able to keep her.

 Hopefully I will get out of this blogging funk by this weekend!

  2. I really like the red lip stick that's pictured. I think I would've gotten the pink just for the color too, I'd probably be lost when it came to wearing it though.
    I hope you get to see your boyfriend as soon as possible and get to keep your kitten. (:

  3. I like your layout! You make me want to update mine lol, but I don't have any ideas at the moment.
    Aw I had the same problem with that line of Sally Hansen polish. I got a couple and didn't like the formula or the brush either :(
    I hope everything goes well with you, your boyfriend and kitten!! <3

    1. Thanks! After so long of changing it haha I finally like it! Well your layout is nice, and simple, and clean, which i love!

      Yeah, it's unfortunate, but that's okay, because I don't really see a lot of colors that I really love, or can't find somewhere else!

      Aw thanks, :( I hope so tooo

    1. I wish I could say the same about the way they apply! I think I will melt them and mix them with some lip balm so they dont go to waste!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. hey I just bought exactly same nail polish from wet 'n' wild and I must say that it sucks :( it was sooo hard to apply on nails and it hardly lasted two days. But I would like to hear what do you think about it?

    1. Really? I am so surprised. I actually like the Wet N Wild better then Sally Hansen, I like the brush because it fits my nail shape and I like that I can just smoothly apply it onto my nail all at once and not have to go back and cover missed parts. Maybe it depends on nail shape....maybe I will have to go look at your blog again to see your nails! I'm not sure but I haven't had a problem with them. I used the color on my toes, I will try on my hands maybe it will be a different story!

  6. Hi Sherry!

    My first time here on your wonderful blog. I'm also a Pieces - 3 1/6 so it was a pleasant surprise when I read your header!

    As for your header, it looks great so it was worth the time out, first impressions are so important as they say, and my impression of your site was positive.<3

    Just fyi, when I tried to stalk you by following/adding you from the " Friend's Connect" the big buttons at the top left, I got a error message. Fix that so I can stalk you some more.. hehehe

    I hated the Wet & Wild nail polish brush, it's enormous but heck it's dirt cheap, how could you complain!

    I'll be visiting regularly just to check out my horoscope haha..! Great to meet ya, hon.. *HUGS*

    1. My birthday is on 3/15, I am not sure if you meant that yours was 3/16 but I am glad to have met another Piscean.

      Aw thank you so much, It wasn't hard to make, but I did take some time on putting the whole look together the other day.

      I was wondering if that button was going to work, I think I need to sign out and then come to my page and try to follow and get that link because I think the link was picking me up which caused an error! But thank you for testing that out and letting me know!

      As for the the Wet N Wild, I like the brush because it fits my nail shape, and I like that it extends to my thumb nail because I don't have to go back for more coverage which leaves an even coat. I haven't had a problem with it. Maybe it depends on nail shape and application? I guess that's why there are so many different brands.

      Thanks, and thanks so much for stopping by. :)
