Hello readers,
Today I have a my first experience with CND Vinylux polish to share with you.  I got the shade Wild Moss along with the matching Vinylux top coat from ChickAdvisor to test out and review.  The Vinylux system is supposed to be a long wear polish that applies like any other polish and doesn't need curing.

Tartelette Tease Palette Swatches & Review

Tartelette Swatch

Hello readers,
Today I have a new-ish palette from tarte cosmetics to share with you.  I recently picked this up from Sephora in a value kit along with a liquid lipstick and tarteist mascara, but you can also purchase it separately.  This palette features six shades, four matte and two shimmer.  I though this would be a great little palette to toss in my makeup bag when I'm traveling or on the go.

Different Dimension Mystery Villain #2 Lady Tremaine Swatches & Review

Different Dimension Lady Tremaine Swatch

Hello readers,
Today I have polish from the Different Dimension Mystery Villain series to share with you.  I'm sorry in advance, you can't snag this polish from the shop any more.  I got it when the 'mystery retired villain' polishes went on sale.  Even grab bag offering from Different Dimension are great.  If the name Lady Tremaine doesn't ring a bell, you may know her better as Cinderella's evil stepmother.
