Wednesday’s Cravings

Hey folks! In getting back into the groove of blogging I thought I would post my most recent wishlist. Do you guys ever put wishlists together for yourself? Whether its for make-up, nail polish or a handbang, I always have a running (ever-changing) list of things that I may want to add to my wardrobe.

Here are some of my current obsessions:

Nail Polish Haul (Part One)

Considering that I have been super busy, I have racked up quite  a bit of nail polish over the past two months or so. Therefore, I decided to do a two-part haul. This video details all the high end polishes I’ve purchased recently:

Here are the swatches for each of the polishes mentioned in the video:

Caviar Manicure

The Caviar Manicure seems to be all the rage right now. In case you don’t know what that is, it’s a three dimensional nail design that literally looks like you have caviar on your nails. It was created by a UK based nail polish line, Ciate, and they just recently released the Caviar Manicure Kits, which are being sold in Sephora retail stores for $25 each. Although I don’t plan on trying it (don’t think it’s my cup of tea), I have to admit that the design and the concept is kind of hot. The kits come in black, multi-color, and white micro-beads:

As with most nail trends, there are gurus who find ways to get high-end looks for less…I found this Youtube video by MissJenFabulous. Apparently, you can purchase microbeads from any craft store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby for a fraction of the price, and save yourself a whole heap of change…

Check out the Youtube video here:
