NOTD: Revlon Grape Icy (scented)

This is from Relvon's summer collection of scented colors. Grape Icy smells like a cherry icy to me, and its lasted over 3 days. Its an electric purple with a violet flash and pink and blue sparkles. I'm not a purple person but I love this color. Its 4 coats, but it was so easy and smooth to apply that I don't even care. It also wears quite well, after 3 days there is a tiny bit of tip wear but no chips. The first photo is the most color accurate.

NOTD: Milani Cyberspace

Another great Milani holo. Cyberspace is a bit more sheer than the other colors I have, this was 4 coats and it could have used another. The first photo is with the flash. The 2nd photo is in indoor light and its actually a brighter blue, not so pale silvery. In the sunlight it gets even brighter with a rainbow of holographic fine glitter.

NOTD: Milani Digital + update on my dad

Firstly I want to update you guys on my dad. For anyone who doesn't know he had a stroke last month (the most severe kind there is) while he was in Oklahoma and he was in the hospital for a month. We got him back to California tuesday and in a convalescent home that's just 5 minutes away. He is doing a lot better than when I saw him in April. He can move the right side pretty good now, but his legs still can't support him enough to walk. He can stand up to transfer to a wheelchair though so he is getting stronger. He is having problems with his memory but he is slowly getting more articulate. I think now that he realizes that his family is so close he is less depressed. The really nice nurse that was taking care of him in OK told my mom that he had been so lonely and when I saw him tuesday night he seemed really sad. I think he thought that he was going to be alone for a really long time again. I have a big family here though so he has already gotten a lot of visitors. Hopefully next month he will be even better.

Now for my snazzy NOTD.

I am wearing Milani's Digital. I love these Milani holos! I'm going to get the blue, silver, and gold next. If you don't have any pick one or two up, they are $3.99 at Target and about $5 at the drugstores. I also have the purple and green which you can see by clicking on the Milani tag in the sidebar.

NOTD: Milani Rad Purple + Pure Ice Heart Breaker

This combination of dark purple with turquoise sparkles is so cool. Unfortunately I didn't think of it myself, but that didn't stop me from shamelessly running out to buy Rad Purple this morning so I could copy it ($3.99 at Target). Of course Heart Breaker from Walmart can make almost any color amazing and costs just $2.00. If you don't already have it get it along with Oh Baby and Busted.

This is 4 coats of Rad Purple and 1 coat of Heart Breaker, pics taken in direct sunlight.

Some Misa swatches

All but First Kiss were just 2 coats. First Kiss is a shimmer, the rest are bright neons. These are very pigmented and apply quite well. I got them from head2toe.com for $3.00 each.




First Kiss


Lather, Rinse, Repeat, a bit less cool then this photo appears. Its light pink with a tiny bit of peach.


Sandles, Flip Flops, & Hip Hop, also a bit warmer then the photo shows, it almost has a touch of coral.


Bikini With A Martini, a bit brighter/more neon in person
