Mani/Purse match up

I went to my friend's shoe store, Corner Spot, to cheat on DSW and get myself a nice, warm pair of snow boot for the last impending snow storm the northeast had. 

At first, did not see the boots I wanted and saw this beauty behind the counter, am not big of purses but when I see one I like, and if am due for a treat, I GET! 

Low price tag, great look, no name, I want! 

and then when I first rocked it, I rocked it with a matching mani (somewhat) 
I thought I was cool! and yes, I rocked this look :)

Beautiful studs and bling and pattern. 
zipper to keep closed so your valuables don't go flying out.

After making this purchase, I did spot a pair of Nike snow boots but it was clear where the priorities were :)

Zoya and Jessica Cosmetics dupes?

I am really liking these dupe posts... I cannot accept the fact that two of my favorite brands will give us the same color.  And here is another close call.

Swatched, Jessica has more of a bluish tint while Zoya stays purple.  :) 
Pheeew... am happy to report that these two shades, although very close, are not the same,.. THEY ARE SIMILAR!

Zoya and Jessica Cosmetics: Dupes??

One thing I cannot allow is someone telling me I have two of the same nail polish colors.  They're never the same, they may be similar but NEVER the same... although I must admit this one was a very close one. 

Jessica Cosmetics and Zoya: Two of my very favorite brands couldnt possibly have dupes.  Let's take a look.

Opening night by Jessica and Mason by Zoya.  Bottles are offly close 
The image below was a flipped image so that they could be right below its corresponding name.

 photo zoyadupes_zpsdf25bc5a.jpg

I swatched them side by side and although they very close, I'd stand by my "they are similar" opinion,.  Jessica has a darker tint of magenta where Zoya stays just a hue below in the pink family.

Offly close... what do you think???

Animal Slippers Review: it's awww at your feet!!!

** press sample**

As part of a product review, I received a pair of black and white kitty slippers www.bunnyslippers.com.

They have the cutest assortment of animal slippers... getting black slippers in a household with a white cat where everything is instantly covered in cat is not the best idea... but they're sooooo cute and they are all sooo cute and I didnt know which ones to pick so I went with cats.

I figured my babies will like them and they sure did!!!!!!

Sally Hansen Triple Shine

**press sample**

 photo IMG_0271_zpsb5f251bc.jpg

Spring is springing upon us and Sally Hansen is ready... Today I bring you four more of the Sally Hansen Triple Shine.  Trend-setting colors 

The formula is super duper high shine (no topper needed for ultimate gloss) and the help of its gloss-tech brush, application is a breeze.  Goes on smoothly and evenly with less strokes. 

I first showed you Triple Shine colors HERE and I still don't understand the double lid but still in love with the formula. 

First up is Clam Up.  A pearlescent pinkish... very sheer.  Great alone or layered.

 photo IMG_0246_zpsb1d6c488.jpg

or "frenched"
 photo IMG_0254_zpsf6d18e4d.jpg

Reef Raf is up next and is my absolute favorite (so far)....  I am in love (although my love for nail polish is a bit promiscuous) 

This coral-hot pink is creamy and shiny... Triple-shiny seen below under different lighting

 photo IMG_0601_zpsb7c6c582.jpg  photo IMG_0599_zps82f4dd8c.jpg

and here's Clam Up layered over Reef Raf... beach 

 photo IMG_0604_zps0119244f.jpg

Next up is Seanic... this is a glitter polish in a clear base.   I used Dive In as undies and white on the accent nail.  All micro glitters ocean themed (i'd say)

 photo IMG_0258_zpscd72939b.jpg

 photo IMG_0264_zps1b2fb534.jpg

and lastly, Sparkling Water.   A deep ocean algae green with gorgeous shimmer... seen in two coats... this one could use 3, yet loveable. 

 photo IMG_0270_zpsec70f57b.jpg

These babies can be bought virtually everywhere...  Sally Hansen is everywhere. 


Which one if your favorite???
