Amor de Lacquer: My First Bottle of Chanel

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

I almost did a cartwheel when I unwrapped some Chanel polishes this past Christmas. I’ve tried several brands of nail polish but only a handful of luxury brands. And while I’ve always wanted to try Chanel, I just couldn’t justify buying a $25 of le vernis. As much as I love nail polishes, come on, yo…$25 is a lot for ONE bottle. Or am I cheap? Probably the latter. 8)

Gotta love when people can read your mind and get your desires for you. :D

So how awesome is Paradoxal? Hit the jump to see if it met my expectations.

Of course I had to show the nail goodies from the Hello Kitty Beauty collection some love. Let’s take a look at the nail stickers.

Yep, you can squeal now.

Bali Intimates rocks + giveaway

I believe in shapewear. And nobody (haha, literally) does it like Bali. I had the pleasure of meeting them at the Blogalicous Conference last Fall. I also met the fabulous June Ambrose who represented them. After getting fitted, I had the opportunity to test drive a pair of their firm control leggings.

Hit the jump to see how successful or unsuccessful I was in that department.

Dr. Scholl’s Fast Flats are All a’That!

I have never been a girl who loves heels. I can’t even pretend like I do. I was the lucky one to get the flat feet gene (thanks Dad) and wearing anything outside of flats or tennis shoes results in some kind of pain. Heels especially. But wearing those things are inevitable. I have to rock them to work, church, meetings and fancy functions. But mannnn, I SO want to hug whoever invented these Fast Flats.

Fold-able flats that can fit in my purse? Oh…yes.

LUSH’s Fizzy O’Therapy bath bomb

LUSH dominated most of the gifts that I gave away this Christmas. You’re familiar with LUSH, aren’t you? I’ve known about them for years now and I don’t know what happened but a LUSH bug must have bit me because now I’m obsessed. I want LUSH everything. But it’s better to give than to receive, right? Hence why I hooked up Mama Clumps with the Fizzy O’Therapy bath balm. I wrapped it up all pretty and put it in her stocking.
