One #*$% of a (@&!^ Color!

In spite of never, ever needing another bottle of polish, I still buy them.  Go ahead and say ‘DUH!’ because that’s why we blog.  And, my fickle nature comes out with polish colors because almost every one I get, I think ‘oooh, it’s my favorite!!!’  Total drooling gush.

But, a vampy color is my favorite type of color.  A vampy red and I’m picking it for my marooned on an island color.  Add in some glitter and I’ll never come back from my la la land.
No exception…

I haven’t been as excited about a new collection as much as I was with Color Club’s Untamed Luxury.  This is ‘Red Velvet’ from the Every Shade of Indulgence set.  ‘Red Velvet’…come to Kimmy!!!!!!

This is a black base that has maroon glitter suspended in it.  I would have loved this color even if it didn’t have the glitter, just a combination of black and maroon.  But the maroon as glitter?  I’m making exclamations ala ‘Orbit Gum Commercial.’

One base coat, 2 Seche Clear coats, 2 color coats, 1 Seche Clear and finishing up with Seche Vite.  The polish was easy to apply as far as the formula goes.  I’m not overly fond that the brush is on this side < of skimpy.  But, I'm willing to forgive for that small slight.  If you are interested in a bottle that is easy to hold and a top that is easy to grip, gotcha covered here.

 The photos of the bottle in the sunlight are the only photos here that give a true representation of this smart ass(peration) of color.  Deep, rich and sexy.  Like I said…come to Kimmy!!!!

Even though this was released before Halloween, do you agree that it is still a good Holiday switch-over?  If I were to go to a Christmas/Holiday party, I’d love to find a dress this color.  Wouldn’t that be fu-abulously cool?

A Giveaway To Honor Breast Cancer Awareness

It has been a full month of pink.  Of course, Libby LOVES pink.  However, the pink for this month is to raise awareness about breast cancer.  And it’s a cause I like to contribute to.  I made some purchases that contribute to the awareness and you can get the goodies!

Here are some of the items in my Breast Cancer Awareness giveaway.  I love that OPI contributes to breast cancer awareness.  Each year they sell a pink polish that donates proceeds for awareness.  This color is ‘Pink of Hearts 2010.’

The color is more light pink than this photo shows.  And I really wanted to capture the teeny tiny shimmers; it’s not really a frost.  It’s just a cute, fun pink!

How about candy that donates?  That was easy!

Can you see the pink ribbon on the York Peppermint Patty?  Seche Vite has a bottle with a pink bracelet.

Can you see the plastic pink ribbon on top of the fluff on the pen?  When you write, it lights up!  I like girly pens because, in my house, no one else is going to be caught using them.  Hee heee!

And the other items are just to make the giveaway a tad bit juicier!
The Piggy Polish is called ‘Pink-nic.’  It is an orangy-pink, especially next to ‘Pink of Hearts.’  However, there is micro-glitter in this that is fuchsia.  Darling!!!

I have a Mega Mixer lip balm from Wet’N’Wild named ‘Electric Lemonade.’  Another yummy!  And I found a Sally Hansen pink file for fragile nails.

There’s going to be a few other things added but that’s what’s fun about my giveaways; there’s always a bit more in it than I show.  I love pleasant surprises!!

My story:  I had a scare when I was  34 years old.  I had to have a tumor removed from my left breast.  In my heart of hearts, I knew it wasn’t cancerous.  But my doctor didn’t.  Several days after surgery, she called me to tell me it was benign.  I just have that ‘spooky-ness’ that I knew already.  I wasn’t afraid at any point. 

I asked a dear friend to think about me the day I went in for surgery, she said she would.  When I called her the next day I told her I could feel her presence with me but there was also someone else, and I thought that was unusual (like all the rest wasn’t!!).  She said that she had one of her friends come over and they both focused on sending me healing thoughts.  No matter how I look at this, it had a perfect outcome.
