A POP of Colour


If you’re like me and have a massive nail polish collection always looking for that ONE colour… this brand might be for you.

I’m talking about POPbeauty and their nail polish line. Ever find such a nice fluorescent pink, but about 30 minutes later, it chips? Yep… BIGGEST PET PEEVE.

While browsing Walgreens on my recent trip to D.C. I saw some of the hues and HAD to try them, I was a little sceptical because I have tried 3 different hot pink colours by different brands, all of which end up chipping.

I have to say though, so far I am impressed – I have tried 2 of the colours so far and they haven’t chipped any more than any other top brand. These colours are pigmented and bright! As with any nail polish – it’s better to do more coats of thin layers, than less with thicker layers.

The colours I have are:

Have any of you tried them? Which are your favourite colours??

Keep in mind, these colours look different online than in person, they’re all brighter in person & perfect for spring and summer!

Definitely a brand I want to continue trying!

Pumpkin Carving

Hey guys… 2 more days until I go back to work :( but having these last few days, meant I had some time to carve pumpkins with my mom. I haven’t carved pumpkins in YEARS… maybe 4? but realistically, it could be even 6. Anyway, I decided to go a bit of a different route.. I’ve never carved a pumpkin this way EVER, so I was nervous – it involved a lot of frustration and a huge mess. Hope you like it!

Tomorrow I am attempting to do “Two-Face” on Anthony. I will film it and post it on YouTube (if it turns out.. if not, I will try to film something this weekend). Hopefully it works! Haha


My halloween themed nail art


Wasn’t as easy as I had thought… first stage of panicking


At this point – my Mom had walked by and started laughing… She’s supportive haha


Getting closer, still nervous but not so panicky haha


Turned out the lights and breathed a HUGE sigh of relief it turned out OK :)

I’d LOVE to see your pumpkins or costumes! Send them to: lifeisshourt@hotmail.com :D
