“I already have that color I don’t need it”-said no woman ever (especially not me) lol. When these polishes first released, I spotted them in Kmart. They were priced for more than $2 and I just wasn’t wow’d enough to swipe.
It was at Dollar Tree when I lost my memory lol. I saw these for a dollar and it made me holla!!
There isn’t anything unique about the colors but the formula is amazing, these can easily be one coaters.
Check out the colors I bought.
Aforementioned about the formula, it is excellent and dries to a glossy finish, I didn’t swatch these with a top coat. These could easily be one coaters. I did have a slight application problem with Fantasia & Sweet Angel being a little on the thick side, but waiting in between layers always helps–along with polish thinner.
Now I’m not one to tell you what to do buuuuuut go get you a few lol!

Watermarble is my favorite sport!!
For this mani I used 3 polishes from the latest collaboration release from China Glaze. This collection features 12 polishes all dedicated to my childhood oops I meant My Little Pony. Yes I’m proud to say my childhood, I had all the My Little Pony toys my mom allowed herself to be coerced into buying lol. Sorry mom, I didn’t keep my promise of never wanting any other toy after that lol.
The colors I used below: L to R: Too Busy Being Awesome, Cute Mark The Spot, Sweet As Pinkie Pie.
These wm so beautifully I had absolutely no problems
If you haven’t purchased any of these polishes, you’re missing out a good mani and some good memories.
There’s also 2 LE sets that you can purchase on eBay, Sally’s and Ulta Beauty.
Have you purchased any polish from this collection? Which one(s)?

So I’m finally making some time to swatch the newly released @sally_hansen X @crayola collab, I’m not too late!! These are available for purchase at Walgreens & Kmart (where I got mine). They retail for $4.99.
There’s nothing unique about the colors but the formula is a 2-coater; one coater if you put a lot on the brush.
There are 12 shades in this collection, I purchased only 4 (somebody better be proud of me)!!
Give nostalgia a round of applause!!
So let me put this disclaimer out from now before anyone decides they wasn’t sent for but they wanna come for me…. this list you’re about to read is based off MY experience doing the water marble technique! I didn’t put out a poll nor am I saying I’ve tried every brand known to nails. I want to let other water marble enthusiasts know what I know.
I am a self proclaimed water marble design expert! I love this technique, I really enjoy any chance to wear it; when I do wear it I get lots of compliments of fascination.

Yes it was that time again last weekend. If you missed it, you missed a good one. However, you can catch another one that’ll be coming to a city near you or in your city. Of course I attended the one that was in a city near and dear to me! I received my blogger press pass & made my way up in there!
I like the brands that participated this year, although I was disappointed that a few I hoped to see didn’t participate this year.
Use this link to my IG page to see a little slideshow featuring scenes from TMSO here.
Here are the items I received in my blogger bag
Some scenes from the floor
We started off TMSO hearing from the coolest down to the earth makeup artist James Vincent. He gave us a history of he started from the bottom now he’s here……
Here’s a swatch of a lippie I bought from Blot Beauty Cosmetics. I hadn’t heard of this brand until I saw their booth at TMSO. This color is called Sort.
