My Favorite Things: April

It's nearing the end of the month, so that means more of My Favorite Things! I originally got this idea from Emma at Manicurity, and now many other polish ladies are doing it too! I love this idea and am so glad more are doing it and creating their own spin on it (Missy from Gnarly Gnails). 

favorite new (tried) polish: OPI What Wizardry Is This?

This polish is just amazing!

favorite new (UNtried) polish: Candeo Smores

favorite new (tried) indie polish: This is a sneak peak for this Friday! Shhh, don't tell! This is Don't Blink by NerdLacquer! Wowza! Of course I couldn't show you the whole mani, tune in on Friday! :)

  favorite new collection: Probably the Zoya PixieDust Collection. This was also my answer for my previous Favorite Things, but now I own 5 of them! (almost doubled my Zoya collection with them!). I have some of the older line and the new summer collection! Stay tune for some swatches!

favorite manicure you did this month: I chose two of my favorites:

My Liger from the Digit-al Dozen Does Animal Week

My Labyrinth mani from The Digit-al Dozen Does Animal Week.

 favorite new technique or tip: Really cleaning the nail after apply moisturizer and before applying polish. Not a new tip but one that I don't always remember and am trying to do better with! Oops! :)

favorite new makeup item: I recently bought a ton of makeup, I was bad. I bought Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm, love this stuff! I also bought two of the new Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in Mushroom and Ether. And my next favorite thing is Sephora Color Reveal Lip Balm. This balm is awesome! Very moisturizing! And it changes color to the perfect pink on my lips! And no real color transfer either into cups or anything! Bonus!

favorite TV show right now: Started watching Hannibal. Very interesting, very dark. Still not too sure on it. I like the main character but Hannibal is hard to understand! Anyone watching it?

currently reading:  The Mermaid's Madness by Jim C. Hines. A twist on The Little Mermaid story with Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Snow White as some of the main characters. Very fun!


  1. Can't wait to see Don't Blink! It's one I'm on the hunt for and I keep on missing out on it in the restocks!

  2. I'm so glad to see you liking What Wizardry Is This...I havent seen anyone besides me liking it!
    And Hannibal...omg I LOOOOVE it. It's so bizarre! Have you been watching Bates Motel?

    1. I love that polish! I watch Bates Motel as well, very good!
