Sally Hansen Heavy Metal and Retro Grade

 purchased by me 

We're in the middle of a serious drugstore drought.  There was a time when there'd be a new Sally Hansen display, chock-full of limited edition goodies, every couple of months...if not more often.  Those days seem to be over, but that doesn't mean there aren't new shades around if you're fiending.  Back in maybe January some stores had a display of six new Xtreme Wear shades, called Rebel Glam.  They were mostly creams and not LE, so I harrumphed and decided to wait for the right price.  Eventually the coupon gods smiled and I bought the two grays I'm showing you today.

Polish Con NYC 2017


What an incredibly fun week I had at the end of April!  Not only did I go to Polish Con, one of my best friends EVER came with me!  If you follow me on Instagram, you saw highlights of my adventures with Kat, who I call "McGee".  We did a whirlwind tour of Philly, Amish Country, and NYC, all centered around Polish Con at Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn.  The convention was the perfect excuse for what I hope becomes an annual visit.  If only Polish Con was in NYC every spring!  I'm not planning on going to the Chicago this fall, and next spring will probably be the West Coast's turn...but I can hold out hope for Philly in 2019, right?  It was a complete thrill and I can't wait to show you guys some of what I did and saw, so let's get to it!

The main room was a little overwhelming at first...
