Just Who Do You Pink I Am?

Are you wearing PINK? Well, are you?!!

I am because on Wednesdays We Wear Pink.

This is a very, very serious pink…

By the company that gives you Color Club, here is Cosmetic Arts’ no name pink. I’ll name it ‘Who Do You Pink I Am?

On my toes it goes! This super neon pink is what summer pink is all about. I have on 2 coats and a top coat of Sally Hensen’s ‘Teflon Tuff.’

Don’t hide that pink, wear sandals…

My Mom gave me these sandals; I think they are just darling. I have several summer dresses that these shoes, and this polish, will make pretty.

I haven’t any idea where Mom got these. I think she tried them for herself and found out that she isn’t a ‘heel person’ no matter what the height.

That was nice of her to hand them down to me!

And this summer flower would match perfectly. I think I’ll wear it in my hair to top off the look.

Don’t you think this neon pink is perfect for sandal-wearing?

If Love Bites, Does It Mean It Has Teeth?

Well, it’s not the same as having your toes nibbled on, however…

Now I am acquiring too many (did I just say that??) polishes because I don’t remember where I got this one!!!  Ack!  I am fairly confident that I got it at Rue 21.  And it was on clearance.  But it was such a cool blue, I bit.  😉

Sorry, but I do not like to have my toes nibbled on.  Libby likes to kiss my toes occasionally and that’s OK.  However, Love Bites is just for a pedicure…

No name on this color.  How about ‘Itsy Bitsy Blue’?  Guest appearance by Sebastian, a seal-point Ragdoll.  Note: see how clever I am by getting carpet that is very close to the same color as the cat?  Yea, that’s thinking with the ol’ noodle!!!

Hey, Sebastian!!!  You’re stealing the show here!

Definitely blue and sparkles galore to it.  Perfect toe polish.  This is just 2 coats with a Seche Clear and one Vite.  Wore quite well.  Applied way better than I expected for an unknown brand.  The bottle states that this polish is a 3-N-1.  It’s a base, color and top coat all in one.  I’m sure that leads to its durability.  The brush wasn’t one of those skinny ones, but a normal sized polish brush. 
I’m pretty pleased with this blue polish.  And I will wear it again as a fingernail polish next time.  Just a durn good-looking, fun ‘Itsy Bitsy Blue.’

Wearing blue polish on my toes makes me feel so happy.  Do you have a polish that’s your ‘happy’ polish?

This Product Laid An Egg

Not every beauty product is going to be a hit with everyone.  And, as bloggers, we generally do posts on the things we like.  So, naturally, we will gravitate to those things we feel we will like.

This is not going to be one of those instances.  I totally hate this product.  And I really do try to save the word ‘hate’ for something so terrible, so despicable, so vile to earn this word.  I throw around the word ‘awesome,’ ‘cool,’ and ‘fantastic’ quite liberally, though.  Yet, those are positive words and even if one would overuse them, they rarely piss anyone off.

With that, I give you the beauty product that I hate…

The Ped Egg.  Sure it’s innocent looking. Even cute.  But it is totally worthless.  That is, unless you like to cheese grate your foot calluses.

It wasn’t even love at first try. I got the thing thinking it was mechanical.  You know, like an electric toothbrush.  A swirling shaver of some sort that would file down my rough calluses.  No.  It was a miniature cheese grater.

The Ped Egg doesn’t even fit nicely in my hand.  I can barely hold on to it because I don’t want my fingers to hang over the side or, my finger to curl under and get scraped.

But I have two feelings about such a mistake: one, try to get it to work and 2) you spent money on it, try and get your money’s worth.   I could get the Ped Egg to ‘function.’  I rubbed on my heel like I was scrubbing a dirty kid’s ears.  This gross powder was flying all over and collecting on my fingers.  I thought the egg was supposed to capture the scaled skin and hold it inside the egg until you opened it up and threw the cheese, oh, I mean dead skin away.

I went to town on my heels and the toes and all those menacing calluses that dared to find their way onto my precious feet.  All the time scrubbing harder than trying to get dried wax off a car.

I open it up like Dr. G, medical examiner, looking for the evidence and….nothing.  OK, maybe a few bits of dust.  Figures, since most of it was flying all around my hands and creating a small mound on the floor below.

Next, on the flat side of the Egg, is a large swatch of sanding paper.  Small grit.  You are supposed to use this over the newly grated calluses.  Wow.  I had transformed my own soles into those that rivaled any trail shoes.  I had more tread than an old Goodyear tire.  I needed to file those barbs o’ callus, but good! 

And so, I carried on scrubbing again.  I’d stop, feel my soles, nope, still torn up.  File some more, check, file some more.  Then I finally stopped and got some foot lotion and called it a foul (egg…foul…get it?).  Dummy me, I did this several more times thinking, wishing, that I’d get the results I saw on TV.  Hell, even Billy Mayes didn’t push this piece of crap!

This is the last known photo of the hated villain.  I saw the light when I heard two women talking about it in a store.  I was there doing a project and I overheard one lady to the other, ‘that is that PedEgg. It is like a cheese grater.’  I happened to look up and she saw me and apologized.  After I told her it wasn’t necessary, I agreed ‘it is a cheese grater, isn’t it?’  Yep, she and I bonded with her telling it like it is.

Here’s one product that I am not going to endorse and I bought it my own darn self. Ped Egg doesn’t have the eggs to send this out for a review!  It has seen its demise and has, thus, been condemned to the island of misfit beauty toys.

Have you ever bought a piece of poo-poo as a beauty tool?  Did you face up to it and toss it?

But Wait, There’s More!!

In nail blogger world, do we not show pedicures?  Well, if not, then I’m breaking the rules for the second or so time.  I figure, almost everyone says they have ugly toes. I never have given mine any regard one way or the other.  I do know that more, regular pedicures would do my nails and feet a world of good.

However, with an additional 10 nails and lots of polishes I want to review, it’s like two for the price of one!  Sort of like an infomercial….but wait, there’s more!…Get your 10 fingernails today and we’ll throw in a set of toenails for free.  Just pay extra shipping and handling!

This is a little mini from a Forever 21 set.  No name, so I get my chance: Piggy Pink.  OK, it only works if you do it for your toes.  My toes have a BC, 2 color coats, and a Seche Clear top coat.  That’s all I need for polish to stay on my toes for days.

My poor big toe just didn’t handle its last pedi well.  I have dry cuticles and I can’t seem to nip away the dead skin without causing trauma.  Anyhoo, this is such a girly pink. It has some lighter pink shimmer to it.  And the big surprise, this cutie went on really nice.  Wow!  Complete coverage with just one coat.  Now, granted, I can’t get my face down into my toes like I can with my hands, but it was smashing to see a color behave so well for toes.

I can’t say I did this alone, though.  Libby supervises almost all toe painting. She comes around when I’m doing my toes and I yell out to her ‘Stinky!!!’  Then she has to come over and smell it anyway.  Squint, squint, squint!  Well, I told her it was ‘Stinky!!’

The polish is cute. The cat is soft. And my toes…still ugly.

What color do you like to put on your toes?  Do you deem your toes ‘cute’ or ‘ugly’?  Pedi posts here?? Not??
