So all last week several women posted on Polish-aholics Anonymous how nail polishes were on sale at Kmart. Now I haven’t been to Kmart in years honey…. YEARS… but when more than one person is telling me to hop, skip and jump to get on these sales…. you know I’m on my way, especially considering that it was one of the days that I was on medically ordered bed-rest. I went anyway. And of course is the luck of Tyra … the pickin’s were slim… SLIM! So I went home with 2 bottles of Sinful Colors, which were on a Buy 2 get 1 free….. I was able to get some other stuff that was majorly marked down as well… I traveled all that way for nothing…. see ladies this is why you should always listen to you doctor.. stay in bed and order your polish online!
I won some nail polish from Nicole by OPI and Dove Chocolate and The Nail Polish Lottery Club is having a contest as well… so if you’re interested in joining a great group and possibly winning some great products… so check it out here

Essie’s Lady Like
This week’s pic is a little different for me as noted on previous posts I tend to have an aversion to nudes/neutral/light pink nails polish. so imagine my surprise when this weeks pick lead to Essie’s Lady Like . I got a
double triple whammy on this one. Lady like is a pink/plum tone mauve polish that is part of the “Brand New Bag” (2011) Collection. As with any neutral it can go with anything and pretty much looks good with everything that you wear. I should probably say that this polish was gifted to me, and that’s the only reason that I won it; this would never be a polish that I would purchase for myself.
This particular polish has several dupes…which is good since this one might be in rotation anymore, China Glaze’s Dress Me Up and OPI’s Tickly my France-y … are just two
This polish only requires two coats and it’s opaque and something that seriously surprised be about this polish was it was so smooth to apply… seriously it was like butter…nice even strokes… I was pleasantly surprised by home much I like this polish. One of the things that I’ve noticed the past couple of weeks is that polish tends to look so different with shorter nails than it does, the last time I wore a nude shade I distinctly remember saying that my nails looked corpse like and it did nothing for my skin…. but I really, really like this; goes to show you that sometimes length of the nail does make a difference.
I wanted to add two pictures one with flash and one without flash so that you see the subtle difference that the light makes with this polish. So one of my tells when I am really into a nail polish is me constantly looking at my nails… I love the idea of wearing this polish but looking like I’m not wearing polish.. this is defiantly the nail version of the “no make-up” make-up. My mom and I went out so I asked her what she thought about this polish (I know bad or good she’s gonna tell me like it is” She didn’t really care for the polish, but without me saying the name of the polish she said “it looks really lady like and demure, it looks like something a grandmother would wear”…. well she’s says I act like an old person so there.. I consider that a complement… but she did add, “I like it better when you wear bright colors” Well that’s the beauty of NPLC you use what
the pick is … you have no say. I have to say I’m grateful because I’ve discovered polish that I would have never touched otherwise.
This polish is defiantly makes me want to revisit the other nude that I blogged about in Week 14 Essie’s Sand Tropez. I wonder if I will feel differently about it with shorter nails, I maybe have to do another NPLClub rewind and see if I feel differently . But since we are still talking about this polish we might as well get to rating it… I think it’s been a long time since I’ve been so generous with my ratings, but here we go Essie’s Lady Like get’s a nice big 9 out of 10 ! So there you go. Lessons learned this week…. Listen to your doctor, stay in bed and purchase you nail polish online AND don’t discount the nudes.
What’s your favorite nude/neutral polish? I might want to extend my collection.
Until Next Time…
