I snagged these polishes at my local Walgreen’s for about $5 a bottle. They are from the Insta-Dri Fall 2011 collection. Normally I don’t bother with this line because the colors don’t call my name, but these I had to get.
Teal-y Fast (groan, that name) is a richly pigmented teal foil. This applied like buttah in two coats. The photo below is in indirect sunlight. Although there’s a hint of a purple duochrome effect in the bottle, it doesn’t translate to the nail. I don’t mind though because this color is so scrumptious.
And bright, direct sunlight:
Bronze Ablaze also applied wonderfully with no muss. It’s a rich metallic bronze, really the quintessential fall shade. The wrinkling you see on my ring finger is not from Bronze Ablaze, but from my Seche Vite which I slopped on too thickly methinks.
True to their names, these dried in a flash and would be perfect for a quickie manicure when time is short.

Jewelry, art, music… and makeup! For me, these are all natural ways of expressing myself. The face is a canvas waiting to be enhanced, just like a blank sheet of sterling silver or clay. Here you’ll find an archive of my makeup looks and tutorials. For about 2 years I did my best to never repeat the same makeup (!!), so as you can imagine there are quite a few! I’m happy to answer any questions about how I created a look, product recommendations, etc.
From time to time I have makeup sales, which will also be posted here.
