Happy happy joy joy

Birthday presents I have already gotten (and my birthday is not even here yet):
  1. Deborah Lippmann Shake Your Money Maker
  2. Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream
  3. Deborah Lippmann Let's Go Crazy
Yeah. Aren't I lucky to have a sister who works for a... well, I don't feel comfortable saying exactly who she works for, but still, aren't I lucky? It's a major luxury retailer, shall we say. So she asked what I wanted, I (of course) said nail polish, and I sent her a list of possibilities and this is what I got in the mail today. These were inside a little makeup bag and there was another one full of various skincare samples, which I haven't even delved into. She of course did not have to pay retail, although I don't actually know how much of a discount she gets, I didn't ask. Anyway, she really could not have gotten anything I would like more, because before today I owned exactly ONE Lippmann and that was not a glitter. So I was definitely coveting these.

If the sun ever comes out again and stays out for long enough to take pictures, I will have some more pictures. It's almost May, so we are overdue for sunny weather. Other than for picture-taking purposes, I don't really mind. I figure we'll have plenty of sun soon enough. (I actually had a coat on one day last week - that's pretty much unheard of for this time of year in these parts.)

I don't think I've talked about the current manicure, which is Revlon Bold Sangria with Jin Soon Gossamer on top. Bold Sangria is a Colorstay color that I've been eyeing ever since the now-departing Colorstay line was released - what was that, two years ago or more? So I saw it and I figured that I should grab it while I can. I also bought a couple of Sinful Colors at Walgreen's this week, since they were having their annual (?) 99-cent Sinful Colors sale. They seem to have it once or twice a year, I'm not sure, but I know it rolls around periodically. I'm really tempted to go tomorrow and grab a couple more. I also made a super-quick trip into Big Lots (which is actually the only kind I ever make, I check out the cosmetic aisles and I leave again before I can find anything else I "have" to have!) and I found a bottle of Rain Forest in the plastic bins with stray SOPIs and other discontinued stuff, and again, I was like, well, I know Colorstay as we have known it is going away, so I should grab it. I have a bottle of Rain Forest already, but that's the (very rare) color that I don't think buying a backup for is unreasonable, especially for $1.50.

I also bought some more variations of those Epielle makeup-remover wipes, because they come in a couple more scents - green tea, aloe vera, and one that doesn't say anything and so I assume is unscented - and I'm still experimenting with those. I've been using the cucumber ones and I don't have the issues that I had with the citrus scent, so apparently it's mostly that one scent that was the problem. (Which was a shame, because it smelled fabulous. I love citrus scents.)

(I've also ordered a couple more things online, but I will let you be surprised about those. One of them is something that I didn't think was available any more, so we'll see what I get!)
