Borghese Riviera Sunset

This is another polish that Mr. Ski picked up for me.  Bless his heart, he tries.  (my mother has a hilarious bit about how southerners can get away with insulting someone because they preface it with "Bless your heart", LOL)  I don't wear gold, copper or bronze usually because I think it looks bad on me, but he seems to like picking those colors!

meh.  My sister likes it, so I may let her walk away with it next time she comes over, and play dumb....

Until Later,

Playing with 230- mini pic spam

After a day or so of a mani, I get bored.  Sometimes I am lazy and add crackle or glitter instead of changing completely.  Here are a few that I spruced up with Clarins 230.  (I am not as afraid to use it as much, I got a back up!)

230 over ChG 108 Degrees

230 over Ulta For Bitten

230 over ChG Channelesque

Until Later,

I wish that I had Jessie's girl...

I loved Rick Springfield when I was younger.  He was hot, and had a catchy song- plus, he was on General Hospital!  He still pops up on GH once in a blue moon, but he is not quite as hot as he used to be.  I hate getting old, LOL!

Mr, Ski picked this polish up for me purely because the brand is Jessie's Girl.  I have seen it at the drug store, but never grabbed it because it didn't really jump out at me.  Since Mr. Ski was so proud of himself for getting it, I didn't have the heart to tell him that I really wasn't that into it.

This is Jessie's Girl Spring Break.  It is a red based purple.  I think it is dupeable- pretty, but not unique.  The formula was pretty good though.

Since I think it is sweet that Mr. Ski tries, I will keep wearing the polishes he buys, even if I am not really that into them- he picked out a Borghese that I am really not into, but I suppose I will have to wear it soon, LOL!

Until Later,
