I have deemed this the best nail color on earth. You know, until I buy a new one.

You guys. I can’t stop buying nail polishes. I’ve purchased all of these within the last few weeks:

Hi Bella!

I suppose it could be worse but considering these are the first ones I’ve bought in literally years, I could probably show a little restraint too. Actually, scratch that. Yesterday when I bought that lovey bright blue, I stopped myself from buying a darker sapphire blue as well. And today I did not buy the awesome bright orange-red bottle of it that I was gazing at in Kroger. So I have shown a little restraint. Just not that much. Hey, at least I usually only buy polishes that are $3.00 or less, right? That’s my justification and I’m sticking to it.


I got two new items of cosmetics this weekend and I fear I may be turning into a junkie. I buy drug store makeup simply because I’m cheap and on a budget. Believe me, if I had a ton of money that wasn’t spoken for, I’d drop a boatload of cash on MAC makeup. But I don’t. So here’s what I got this weekend.

Maybelline Color Show nail polish in Tenacious Teal. I got it on sale at Kroger for $2.99. I’m in love with it.

Please, pay no attention to my apparent inability to stay in the lines. You should see my right hand.

Maybelline New York Eye Show gel eyeliner in blackest black. I got it on sale at Kroger for $7.99. This stuff is water proof and comes in a nifty little pot with a brush to apply it with. The brush is super skinny one way and wide the other. It goes on just as easy as the pencil I have. And this doesn’t migrate all over my entire eyelid. The pencil definitely did. It comes right off with a little oil too.

This is after a solid eight hours of wear. And probably 50 inadvertent eye rubs.

I can already tell that this is going to be one of my must-haves right along with Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara. I love that stuff.

Anyway, I can hardly walk past the makeup aisle anymore without taking a look at what’s available and on sale. I have two red lipsticks but I am constantly on the prowl for more. I don’t wear a whole lot of eye shadow but I’m still a sucker for champagne colored ones. I don’t wear foundation.

So what are your beauty must-haves? Anything you would recommend?
