OPI Washington DC - My Picks: Pt. 1

 purchased by me 

Who else is 400% ready for Fall?  I've been swatching some of my recent purchases and it's about to get autumnal in here!  Let's kick off the best season with a look at four creams that set the fall mood just right...

Do we like the text on the collage?

Where's The Green!?

 purchased by me 

If you're still reading this blog, hey.  I kinda wandered off again, didn't I?  July got hectic.  I had an ear infection, then a minor-ish allergic reaction to the antibiotics.  Then it was Beard's birthday and I went way overboard with the cake.  The local fair is the same week, and we always go, because goats.  A gummy bear making obsession also took over my free time.  In sadder news, one of my family cats (posted by my sister) lost a long battle with health problems.  The last couple of weeks have been a blur of headaches, hives, gelatin, livestock, and cat nostalgia.  Blogging fell by the wayside.  This "evolving" mani is from weeks ago, but I liked it too much not to share it.

Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel - My Picks

 purchased by me 

If high prices and special topcoats have kept you from trying other brands' no-lamp gels, you'll wanna check these out.  1 Step Wonder Gel doesn't need a special top coat, which sets it apart from most polishes of this type.  It's in an opaque black bottle because it has a light-cured polymer in it, along with all of the usual conventional polish ingredients.  This isn't just a "gel-like" formula, but it still dries like conventional polish.  I'm waaaay late in posting these, considering that I first found the displays and bought my picks in January.  'Better late than never' has pretty much become my motto, we are...
