While I was in Vegas I found Deborah Lippmann's All That Jazz Set in Barneys and there was this instant I NEED this in my life feeling. My poor Husband of course gave me one of those do you really need more nail polish eye rolls. But I was determined and it was mine.
This past Saturday I signed up to go to an Extreme Couponing 101 work shop with a friend of mine and well I had a problem. My nails weren't exciting enough. I mean yah I like the idea of saving money but I want to look damn good while doing it! I knew I had to glitz up the nails! I was wearing No Miss Quincy Quarz and I looked over at this set which was still in the box and this lightbulb went off. I quickly pulled out Some Enchanted Evening and knew it was going to be perfect coupling. I did gradient glitter tips because I didn't want glitter overload or the extra glitter to clean off. End result is this is one of my top 10 favorite manicures that I've done and it's not even that complicated. It's just so simple clean and classic to me. Best of all it looked Amazing with my pink outfit!
The polish itself is a clear pinkish base and it has two different shapes of light pink glitters in it. The smaller glitter is pink but when it sparkles they seems to flash reddish to me so it makes for a nice treat. This is not one i'd wear by itself without a base color. I can't say that this polish is unique since it seems like I've seen similar ones out there and even Essie's upcoming holiday top coat collection has a similar one to this. But to me Nothing Beats a Deborah Lippman Glitter, hah I guess I'm sucker when it comes to her glitters! If you can afford to splurge on her polishes than do it because it's pure happiness that they bring! (at least they have for me!)
Speaking of money....So here's a little more info about the Coupon workshop I went to... Jenny from www.southernsavers.com is the one who organized it and she holds workshops in several states throughout the south so check out her site. I never really checked out her blog before I only went because a friend of mine was going and I was glad I went. I didn't realize how many people would be there. It was at a church and there had to be at least 300-400 people there! So Extreme couponing is not something I think I'll dive into full force but I do see myself dabbling in it. In fact I already did it once and I got 10 boxes of General Mills Cereal and I paid a big whooping buck for all 10 boxes! Crazy! I don't even believe it myself since they would have cost me close to 50 bucks without the coupons! Hah I will have to start couponing to justify spending all my money on Deborah's new winter collection she has coming out! Got my eye on Stairway To Heaven!
Okay enough blabbing from me here's the eye candy!
