Today, I’m wearing Color Street Mardi Gras! This is a blue-purple glitter that can shine the hell out of any other glitter on the market! :)
If you saw yesterday’s post, you know that my husband and I are getting divorced. I’ve dipped my toe into online dating and I’m already sick of it. LOL. Here’s my tip for all you online daters out there: Do your part to keep the conversation going. You need to give the other person something to respond to. Ask questions, be flirty, read their profile. I’m sure I’ll have more tips to come…. LOL. Life is so weird right now.
Also, what’s with the facial hair trend? About 90% of the guys have big ol’ beards. Do you realize it hurts my face?
Ok readers, I have some big news to share with you. If I know you in real life and you’re finding out via this blog post…well…sorry? Oops?
My news is: I’m getting divorced. <<insert gasps and shocked reactions here>> Ultimately, it’s a good thing and I think my ex and I will both be happier. But, that whole story is not the point of this post. The point of this post is that I casually joined Tinder and OMG some of the profiles are hysterical. Here are my 10 favorite (so far!)
“Donald Trump is your new president. How much worse could I be?” Matt, 30
“Sexiest thing about me? I use “your” and “you’re” correctly 10 outta 10 times.” Leonine, 28
“First man on Earth to be clinically diagnosed with resting bitch face(RBF).” Grant, 36
“Live on my own and shower regularly.” Herb, 38
“If you like bad boys, you’re in luck, I’m bad at everything.” Robert, 35
“Well I’m 30 years old and I don’t live in my mother’s basement so I think I’m doing pretty good for myself. I can open a jar of pickles in 2 seconds flat.” Ben, 30
“Unemployed and mentally unstable. Other than that, my mom says I’m a real catch.” Nick, 35
“Dear people who say that they “like fun”, Everybody likes fun. Nobody is having fun and thinking, “oh no, not this shit again”.” Nick, 36
“I am just a Jim Halpert with a slightly better job, looking for my Dwight Schrute with a slightly better face.” Deep, 34
“I’m just here to meet people while I poop.” Vinny, 28
Ironically, I also got send an article by TheLeague.com. The article is “You’ve Been Flirting On Dating Apps All Wrong!” Obviously, I opened that email right away. LOL. What have I been doing wrong?? Well…nothing, actually. I’ve been doing things right. Phew! :P But there are some very interesting stats that I thought I’d share with you!
Those who use emojis are more than three times as likely to exchange numbers (convert) and tend to have more than double the conversation lengths compared to those who don’t! (“Conversion” means that a phone number was exchanged.)

*Flirty here is defined as those women who have used the following words/ symbols in any of their match conversations:
It’s a little late for Halloween, but gory nails are always in style in my opinion! :) These wraps are Espionage Cosmetics Blood Splatter. Even though these are simple, I freaking loved wearing them. The blood splatters are glittery, too, which just makes them even more cool.
IT Cosmetics Miracle Water and Secret Sauce Review
It Cosmetics sent me their Miracle Water set to review for you! You can get these two products anywhere It Cosmetics are sold, including Amazon.
The It Cosmetics Secret Sauce moisturizer is jam-packed with moisture. I have really dry skin and even I only need a little bit of this. I’m officially a huge fan of Secret Sauce. It made my skin look brighter, clearer, and was very soothing.
It Cosmetics Miracle Water Glow Tonic claims to transform your skin and maximizes the benefits of your skincare routine! It’s a lightweight, no rinse product. I applied it right after cleansing, before moisturizing.
Miracle Water™ helps to increase absorbency and improve the efficacy of your moisturizers and serums. They say you can use it after cleansing or in place of your cleanser for powerful results immediately and over time. I tried using it in place of my cleanser, but it didn’t clean my skin enough. But, I really like it as a toner step! It made my skin feel softer and look brighter.
Color Street English Lace is one of the more delicate designs from Color Street. It has a nude background, then it cuts each nail in half with white. On top of the nude background, there is a delicate lace design. This is a super lovely design. I think it would be great to wear to weddings! It’s subtle, but still has that fun, “nail art” look to it.
Today, I’m wearing Espionage Cosmetics Electrostatic Spark. This is from their Nexus Box subscription which is two nail wraps per month. I actually just cancelled my subscription because a lot of their wraps are too thick for my very curved nails. :\ Luckily, these ones were thin and super cool! Who doesn’t love a lightening storm??!!
I just landed back in Seattle after a few days in Arizona with my family. Talk about opposite weather! I love the rain and boy did I miss it! For some reason, Color Street Sunset Strip reminds me of Arizona weather a lot more than Seattle weather! Why is every building in Arizona beige? It was so weird. Can anyone answer that for me??
How about a little pink to brighten up the evening? Tonight, I’m showing off Color Street Military Love. I was never able to master the camo technique with wet polish so it’s really fun to have this design available in a polish wrap. Even more new designs were released this past week, so make sure your stock up! They have actually been selling out pretty fast! :O
Color Street Midnight Circus is a limited-edition Halloween nail art design! I think this MIGHT be my favorite. It reminds me of Nightmare Before Christmas, but also has a slight Harley Quinn vibe to it. Or maybe I’m just projecting?
If this is sold out on the site (Color Street), contact me directly because I have some in my at-home inventory. Order soon to make sure you get it before Halloween is here! Wait. Cancel that. Order whenever you want because you can wear Halloween nail art all year round! :P
Color Street Salem Secrets is another awesome Halloween nail art design from Color Street. This one also glows in the dark! :O The glow in the dark Color Street designs have a very strong glow effect. I can even see them glowing in shade rather than full dark!
IT’S HALLOWEEN TIME!!!!!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEK! This is my all-time-favorite time of the year. I freaking love Halloween so much. I’m thrilled to wear Color Street Sleepy Hollow as my first Halloween design this month. These are selling out super fast so if they’re not still available with that link, check with me and see if I have any in my at-home inventory.
These are glow-in-the-dark and the effect is super strong. It looks AWESOME.
Color Street Island Vibes is a beautiful coral polish with navy leaf designs. I felt kind of weird wearing this in the fall, but I didn’t want to wait until the spring to try it out! So, I decided, seasons be damned! I do what I want!
I must say, the glitter designs from Color Street are turning out to be my favorites. That includes Color Street Vegas Vixen. This one is a gorgeous hot pink to silver gradient. I even wore this one on our trip to Vegas earlier this month! (Obviously! :P I had to!!)
How else can you get a perfectly even gradient with no mess, no cleanup, and no dry time? If you wanted, you could even stamp on top of this and give it your own personal pizazz. Color Street is really an awesome product!
Today I’m going to show you Color Street Harajuku Hearts. This is a super girl design! The pink has a slight touch of shimmer to it when you see it in real life. Come join my private lazy nail art group to show off your manicures! (Regardless of whether they are Color Street or not!) Click here to join.
Color Street Lover’s Lane is being retired!!! :O It will only be available as long as supplies last. This is too bad because I love this design. It’s simple, fun, and modern. If you like it, too, you better get a set or two for yourself! I have no idea how long these are going to last in inventory.
Right now, I’m wearing Color Street Sunset Canyon. As you may know, I’ve never really been able to master the art of the watermarble, so I was pretty excited when I saw this design. This is the first time I’ve ever been able to wear a perfect watermarble! LOL
Today, I’m wearing Espionage Cosmetics Wonder Gal. I had a little trouble with these ones. They’re a bit thicker than Color Street so you can see there is some warping – especially with the solid gold one by my cuticle. Even though Color Street is a lot easier to apply and wear, I still buy and wear Espionage Cosmetics wraps because I lovelovelovelove their designs so much. About half of them are thin enough to conform to my nails – so once in a while it looks perfect, too! LOL.
Sally Hansen sent me a couple neutral polishes to swatch and show you! These are both from the Color Therapy line which has argan oil infused in the products to help moisturize and nourish your nails.
Sally Hansen Chai on Life is a creamy nude with peach undertones.
This is Sally Hansen Make my Clay. This is a really weird color. My father is a potter so I grew up around a TON of clay. (A TON.) And while this is a pretty color-accurate polish for its namesake, clay is kind of a weird color to wear on nails. This one has green undertones. It definitely looks like clay, but I don’t really like on my nails. LOL
