I'm Too Whimsical!!!

Today's Therapy & Rehab Session:  I'm Too Whimsical!!!

So per the millions of nail polish blogs that I read...yes it is part of my therapy & rehab...DON'T JUDGE ME!!!  (:  Now like I was saying per the nail  polish blogs Revlon has been duplicating some very famous & popular name brand polishes.  So this particular beauty is Revlon's is a dup of Deborah Lippmann's Glitter In The Air.  I have seen DP's GITA...this is a DEAD ON DUPLICATE by Revlon!!!  Revlon is good, damn good if I don't say so myself.  Even Deborah Lippmann had to tweet about how good Revlon was getting in duping popular polishes.  Revlon's Whimsical is priced at $4.99 at Ulta where I just so happen to pick up mine.  On Deborah Lippmann's site...Glitter In The Air is $18.00!!!  YEAH...I know...way too expensive for my CVS, Walgreens, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Target, Walmart & Franken sites blood.  I'm a Frugalista (This is an acutally person on Twitter @Frugalista) and Frugalnomic (This is an actually person on Twitter as well @myfrugalnomics).

Merry Christmas NPWasters!!!

I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas!!!  

I am sorry that I have been away...between getting the boy off to see his dad for Christmas, work, getting ready for my own vacation and family...I have been so tired.  I have had enough energy to just polish my nail without taking pics.  Yeah I know...VERY BAD HOST/BLOGGER. So I promise tomorrow I will back on the grind.  I have a couple things to post about as the new year is coming soon.  So as always...

Sit back and enjoy the fumes!!!

What get's me...Nail Polish Wasted!!!

Today's Therapy & Rehab Session:  I decided to take some pictures of what get's me Nail Polish Wasted!!!  What's crazy is that I have a lot of these colors for a while, wore them...but never took pictures of me wearing them.  So I will have to do the mani's all over again and take pictures so you can see them on me.  I have a lot...yeah I know...this is just the tip of the ice berg.  I am a Julep I don't even have those pictured yet...Le Sigh!!!  All pictures were taken with my HTC Smartphone, so they are not the greatest.  Also I'm not listing each color for now...if you want to know a specific color...ask me in the comments and I will respond back.  FYI...this post is PICTURE HEAVY!!!  Here we go:

Hi my name is Charms and I get NAIL POLISH WASTED!!!  Like my bio says, over several years I have paid for manicures & fake nails...each year getting more and more expensive.  I decided to start doing my own nails at home and with the help of my Sister from another Mom & Mister aka EJ tha DJ...I have tried several polishes, top coats, cuticle oils/creams, lotions...a lot of beauty products.  I have trolled over 100+  blogs that specialize in nail polish, nail lacquer, nail...well you get my point.  With that being said, I decided to start my own blog because one thing I did notice...there aren't a lot of blogs for Women of Color by Women of Color.  My point is what looks good on you doesn't always look good on a woman of color.  So you get to see nail polishes from my eyes to yours...but note my eyes are very for a while you will not see the expensive brands.  I don't profess to know it all, my advise might not be helpful and my opinion is like...well you know the saying.  What I can guarantee you is funny, quirky, silly nail polish posts from a lady who will try anything at least once...well...will try a nail polish at least once.  As my motto says...

Sit Back and Enjoy the Fumes!!!
