Amor de Lacquer: Valentine’s Day nails

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.

Who wants some Valentine’s Day nails? Don’t front, my sister. You know you’ve been waiting until Valentine’s Day season to rock some pink nails. I kid, I kid. While most of us nail polish lovers don’t need to wait on a holiday to rock certain nail colors, I love going over the top when holidays pop up.

And so…how appropriate are these pink polishes from Sinful Colors?

But the best thing about these polishes? They are only $1.99? Ohhhh yeah!

Strawberry Ice Cream bath? Thanks Mrs. Whippy!

Darlings…have you found the time to take a bath yet? While I’ve been too lazy (isn’t that funny? Too lazy to relax… :D) to take one EVERY single day, I still manage to get in at least 3 bubble bath a week. I recently took one and used the Mrs. Whippy bath bomb from LUSH.

Ain’t she purty? LUSH says that this bomb smells like Strawberry Ice Cream and I couldn’t agree more. She’s got soya milk powder infused in her so when she fizzes out, she leaves your bath water milky. You know what though? I didn’t find her to be the softest bath bomb that I’ve experienced. In fact, she was just okay. It was her scent and slow fizzing fireworks that stole the show for me.

Mrs. Whippy, your intentions were good, ma’am. And you smell divine. But a sista with skin as dry as mine needs more softening action. Love you anyway. Mrs. Whippy is only $4.95 at LUSH retail stores and LUSH.com. I purchased this one a few months ago but I love how my LUSH bath bombs always smell so pretty until I use them.

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.
