Last week wore I Love Nail Polish’s Birefringence, and as much as I gushed about it and although I was sad to take it off…cause let’s admit it, it’s a fantastic nail polish, and

with bottleChallenge Red-y is a blue toned from special made for a promotion for  Special K made by Nicole by OPI. The Shine Brighter campaign was introduced to encourage women to show off their confidence through color. Based on how many codes you were able to accumulate you would depends on the number of polishes you receive the entire collection include My Sol Shines Brighter and Live in the Momentum. I ate a LOT of Special K products this summer, so much so that now it’s the only cold cereal that I ate…. but thanks to my cereal eating I was able to get 6 polishes.

This crème polish and formula was smooth and very easy to apply. There was a bit of VPL after two coats…. so depending on how you apply it make take 2-3 coats. This polish is better described as a candy apple red , when you picture those old Hollywood vixens and movie stars this is the color they would be wearing. I felt superwithout bottle glamorous wearing this polish… I loved it so much I put it on my toes as well. You can’t go wrong with a red polish, and this one works really well on people with tan and dark toned skin.

Even though I love red, it’s not a color that I wear often, and now that my nails have gotten longer I think the red is a bit more noticeable. I had a lady at Wal-Mart walk up to me and ask me if my nail were real when  I replied that they were , she scrunched up her face, looked at my nails and “politely” told me that I shouldn’t wear that color because hey make me nails look fake. I’m sure I won’t be the first one to get a rude, opinionated comment about my nails…certainly I won’t be the last. (sorry for the lack up clean-up… I was super excited about this polish)



As soon as I sat this nail polish on the bed Tsuki wouldn’t stop playing with it I want to say that she was in a playful mood (but she’s always like that ), but not only that she wanted to do some sort of acrobatics…. she’s such a show off…  like me, she knows a good thing when she sees it.  And she knows that red looks as good on he r as it does on my … so because of the color, the easy application and the fact that some felt the need to tell my my nails looked fake I can’t help but give Challenge Red-y a 10 out of 10.



Until Next Time…

Writing Prompt: A second #RoyalBaby will soon be joining the Windsors in England. Given the choice, would you rather be heir to the throne, or the (probably) off-the-hook sibling?

Ugh! Seriously? I’m sorry but I woke up and I heard the news and the first thing I said was , “Great, here we go again… now we get to hear again how she’s the most elegant pregnant woman ever, and naturally everyone is gonna talk about how they are doing things their way…. the news was just announced yesterday and already I’m over it.

Now before I begin I should be honest and say that I’m not a fan of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to be ever increasingly work shy… first it was, “we are settling into married life” then it was “wow I, preggers” then it was “we are taking a gap year” (Can I take a “gap year from my life and responsibilities as well?”, not it’s “oops, I’m preggers again!”  The amount of engagements that they literally comes out to about a month a year… I know I know people say, she had a baby… blah, blah, blah, but with I will always bring up the fact that there are working women everywhere who work and raise children, and to a multitude of other things at the same time… must be a modern royal thing. Mean while Harry is working, doing engagements, and still seems to be able to have a full life…. maybe I’m blinded by my dislike of the couple…. but when  what I’m wearing and how quickly it sells off the shelf becomes more important than the work that I’m doing  then something is seriously wrong.

Back to the prompt… more than likely I would want to be the heir. I think there is a greater freedom there both personal and professional and you don’t have to deal with that pesky crown…. with that being said… who knows how things will turn out since the heir’s heirs doesn’t really seem into his job at the moment…. but who knows how things will work out in the end.

Until Next Time….
