Incoco Vintage Charm

purchased by me

Spring has finally sprung, but because the building in which I work is so cold, I've not been able to wear most of my spring clothes.  So I'm sporting spring on my nails--mint and silver stripes with black and pink floral bands.



Vintage Charm polish strips are available at Incoco for $8.99 + shipping.

Incoco Lavender Fields

purchased by me

I was so excited to see these as part of the Incoco spring collection because lavender is my favorite flower.  When I got my hands on these strips and these strips on my hands, they lived up to my expectations!  Beautiful, detailed sprigs of lavender on a silver background.


You can find the Lavender Fields nail polish strips for $8.99 + shipping at the Incoco website.

Deborah Lippman Marrakech Express

purchased by me

I'm back!  Did you miss me?  If you want to know where I've been, check out Curmudgeonette. :-D

Anyway, today is all about Marrakech Express.  I love this polish so much!  It's been a longtime lemming for me, and when I finally grabbed it from HSN, it did not disappoint.  It's a red-copper foil with gold flakes, the formula was easy and it was opaque in two coats.


It's available at the Lippman website for $20 or at HSN for $21 with a free mini bottle of top coat.

Formula X for Sephora: Dazed

purchased by me

Dazed is a pale pink-lavender shimmer.  It's very shimmery but doesn't show brush strokes.  However, this particular polish is thin enough that even when it's at bottle color (2 coats) it still shows every. single. ridge.  Dazed is also discontinued.

Formula X for Sephora: Groovy

purchased by me

Groovy is part of the Technicolor Silks collection from Formula X.  It's an insanely shiny orange-toned red with a pink flash.  The formula is good, thin but opaque and fast-drying, but I mostly love it for the color. :-)  Swatch is two coats, no top coat.


Groovy and the other Technicolor Silks can be found at Sephora for $12.50 each + tax and shipping.
