Barielle Gotta Have Fate

Hey everybody!  Tonight I have another of the Barielle polishes included in my Wife Appreciation Day (I still love that) deal.  Earlier I posted Slate of Affairs, and this time I have something that shocked me...shocked me rather thoroughly:  an orange that I love.

Meet Gotta Have Fate.

I can hardly believe I'm saying this, but this orange creme is beautiful!  And see?  I have proof that it doesn't look gut-wrenchingly dreadful on me!  The formula was perfection.  I used two coats of Gotta Have Fate to achieve this juicy, shiny, yumtastic look. 

Oh look.  There's Angelo's hair...

Gotta Have Fate is not bright enough to look really summery and not dusty enough to look completely autumnal.  It's just a true tangerine that is very flattering.  

How about that?  First the pinks take over my collection...will it be oranges next?  Nah, probably not. :P  But that won't stop me from wearing this one! 

Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day! :)

Barielle Slate of Affairs

Hey everybody!  Today I have a gorgeous little number by my favorite under-appreciated brand, Barielle.  If you get Barielle's email of the day, you know that sometimes they will offer a really great deal for that day.  Today's polish was part of one of those deals in honor of Wife Appreciation Day.  Hey, I'm a wife!  How convenient for me. :) 

Let's take a look at one of the three polishes I got (in my self-appreciative package), Slate of Affairs.

Barielle describes Slate of Affairs merely as "a worn denim", but there is more to it than that.  It's a gorgeous grey-toned blue with a strong bright blue shimmer.  It's practically an antique too, having been released back in 2009 in the All Lacquered Up collection.  I used two coats, and the formula was typical Barielle creamy perfection.

I didn't mention that I got Slate of Affairs and two other shades for $7.95 plus free shipping.  It's really great being a wife! :D  Be sure to sign up for Barielle's daily deal emails, and you'll get great offers like this one.

As always, thank you for stopping by, and have a lovely day! <3

Orly Miss Conduct

Hey everybody!  

Today's polish is one I've been wanting for a while, Orly Miss Conduct, from the Holiday 2012 Naughty or Nice collection.  I found this bottle recently at TJ Maxx for the very not-naughty price of $3.99.  Niiiiiice.

Miss Conduct is a beyond beautiful magenta-colored jelly bursting with scattered holo goodness.  It reminds me of OPI DS Extravagance, but Miss Conduct is more pink and brighter.  The formula is perfect (mistake-proof for us kiddie-level painters).  I'm showing two coats here.  You could probably get away with one if your nails are short.

So YAY for finding buried treasure in a markdown bin!  My sister purchased Miss Conduct ages ago, and I've wanted it ever since.  So many buried treasures out there...

As always, thanks for reading, and have a lovely day! <3
