My Favorite Things: February

I love reading about other bloggers and their favorite things so I thought I would join in with Emma over at Manicurity and post my favorite things with her list of questions.

favorite new (tried) polish: Probably Catrice ACid/DC. Catrice polish is just amazing. The formula is fabulous! Plus they have fun catchy names! :) Oh how can you go wrong with this amazing color?

favorite new (UNtried) polish: China Glaze Budding Romance from the Avant Garden Collection. A beautiful ugly green! Yes please!

favorite new (tried) indie polish: Slick Lacquer A Wink and a Nod. Wow is this polish just amazingly gorgeous. And the formula is perfection!

favorite new collection: Probably the Zoya PixieDust Collection. Even though I don't own any....yet. And I am really shocked because I usually don't like Zoya, but I am super excited for these! :)

favorite manicure you did this month: I would have to say my ampersand mani for The Digit-al Does Does Love and Heartbreak using Slick Lacquer A Wink and a Nod. I love the memory of the story I told and I am so happy with how it turned out.

Plus my little black strappy dress I created for The Digit-al Dozen Does Love and Heartbreak. My first tape mani that I actually love! :)

And I couldn't just leave it at two! I love my remake of my peacock mani I did for my relaxed 31 Day Challenge. :)

favorite new technique or tip: creating your own nail decals with your polish a head of time on page protectors! Love this and it works great! I have more control over the polish and it's all at the right angle! :)

favorite new makeup item: I would have to Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer in Rose Gold. I got this (sample size) in my Birchbox a few months back but have only recently started using it. And I love the shimmer and brightness it adds!

favorite TV show right now: Well, The Amazing Race started back up this month! Woot! Woot! I love this show! A new favorite show is: Cult. Only seen one episode so far but I am already hooked! Anyone else watch it?

currently reading: Eona by Allison Goodman. Won't tell you much on it, saving it for a Wednesday's Reads. But it is the sequel to Eon. And it is very interesting. Plus I am still plunking through A Game of Thrones (will I ever finish it? Who knows!?)

And there you go! What were your favorites this month?! Feel free to comment with your list!

  1. I love this type of roundup post, I love the more personal touches of them!

  2. Oooh ohhh! I am so excited you're doing this now, too!! I tried watching Cult but didn't like it as much as The Following, have you seen it? Also we're on the same wavelength - love the Pixie Dusts, want Budding Romance, love that indie you got and look forward to seeing you use it AND love making nail decals on plastic :D

    1. Hahaha! :) I also watch The Following, very very good! Sometimes it's scary how similar our brainwaves are! :)

  3. this is fun and you know - i may steal it!

    1. Thanks! Feel free! Can't wait to read yours!

  4. I love to read these things! :D

    I do love the zoya pixie dust collection as well, can't wait to get my hands on them :). My boyfriend and I have watched all the episodes of Homeland in 2 weeks so you could say that is my fav TV show at the moment, too bad I need to wait until the end of september for season 3 :(

    1. I've heard so many good things about Homeland. I guess I need to watch that too! :)
