a tiny bit obsessed with nail polish

Zoya Entice & Ignite Collection Wallpapers

I really feel that companies should make wallpapers more often! I really dig the macro shots of Yuna and Teigen polishes. They have sizes up for desktops, tablets and phones.

Peanut Butter (No) Jelly Time

It’s been a long and wonderful journey outside of fivezero.ca! Now that everything has settled down with our new little peanut, and I no longer have to live off peanut butter on super-high fiber bread, I hope to get back to working full speed ahead on the database website. In the meantime, I have splurged a little on some goodies (you know, the kind that fit even when you need to lose a whole dress size!), and I’ll post pics in the coming weeks.

Here are some very recent acquisitions…

The local department store appears to be clearing out Illamasqua, which I’d never tried before save a couple of powder blushes earlier this year. I took the opportunity to try out their nail polish (of course!).

I also spotted some new-to-me Pacifica makeup online, so I picked up an eyeshadow palette and another nail polish

Finally, most randomly, I was in the pharmacy aisle of the grocery and noticed a lone package of Playtex that came with a free Revlon nail polish. How could I pass that up, right?! Sales are nice, but free is fantastic!

Thanks for reading!


Loaf of bread, head of lettuce, bottle of nail polish

Swung by my local grocery store today and happened to see a new Sinful Colors display in the pharmacy area! Being the nail polish nut that I am, I picked up two bottles at $2 each:

The orange polish is Cloud 9 and the green polish is Innocent. I think they must pull names out of a hat.

Please pardon my slightly swollen thumb!

Meanwhile, the nail polish database is still being worked on, and I want to thank all those who have sent in requests to be beta testers! There’s been a lot of excitement in our family life, and I’ve just been slower with the work than I would have liked to be.

I hope it gets sunnier again soon, though, so I can post a few NOTDs. We certainly need some sunshine after all these months of snow and ice!

Two brands added…

…to the nail polish database: La Roche-Posay and Priti NYC.

Still working on it….

Essie – Go Overboard

Collection: 2012, Go Overboard (Spring)

I’ve always been a lover of teal, and I adore cream finishes, so it was a no-brainer to pick up Go Overboard. It’s a deep, deep teal blue (more blue than green) cream. It’s not a blackened teal, so it manages to still look teal in dim light, which I really like.

The formula was pretty nice and I only needed two coats for full opacity and evenness.

I just want to mention that I will be holding off on swatches for the next few weeks, as I really want to get the personal organizer part of the nail polish database up and running! I really need to get my polishes all sorted – after all, it’s a bit late now spring cleaning…
