We got more snow today...Ughhh! The roads were pretty bad and my car almost got stuck but I managed to make it home safely. I just saw these comments below about this Revlon Matte Balm swatch that someone repinned into their board on Pinterest and I was like REALLY? Does it bother you that much that I have a mole? Yes, it's a mole people! Love it or hate it, it's mine so why should it even matter to you? Educate yourself if you can't tell the difference between a mole and herpes. It's been with me since childhood. And now that we're on the topic, I just want to say RELAX! it is non-cancerous, even if it freaks you out. I feel the need to reassure you since a little while ago someone actually politely suggested on my blog that I go see a physician because my mole was concerning to them. Heck, I work at a clinic. I see physicians all the time. None of the experts raised the alarm but I suppose the reality is not everybody knows what a mole is or what it looks like :(
I love my mole even if you don't. It's harmless and I wouldn't think of removing it...or photoshopping it as someone suggested. OK, now that I got that off my chest, I just want to say I'm ok and my feelings aren't hurt. I just didn't want people to be concerned or misdiagnose my lovely mole for something it isn't. I guess I'm confused because it looks perfectly normal to me. And lastly, I feel terribly sorry for those who shamelessly display their ignorance and lack of brain. I will pray for them people tonight.
Ok ok...I stop right now. I'm done with the mole thing....
In case you didn't know, Finger Paints nail polishes are on sale, buy 1 get 1 free, at Sally Beauty Supply through out the month of February. This is a big deal ya know. I was there a couple days ago and my oh my! I couldn't help myself when I saw these beautiful polishes. The sale is perfect for my budget so I pick up these 4 beauties.
Rockin' Renaissance is a mauvy purpleish brown textured polish with gold glitters. It's stunning and very textured. I would have liked it better if the texture was a bit smoother. The formula is thick and a bit difficult to spread out evenly and dries fairly quickly. You only need 2 coats for full coverage.

Gorgeous Graffiti is a bright fuchsia/magenta with fine blue shimmers. The formula is not too thin or too thick and applies very nicely. You can get full coverage in 2 coats but personally I like it better with 3 coats, which is what I have on the swatches. It dries to a somewhat matte finish and fairly quickly.

Magenta Mural is a mauvy magenta purple very subtle and fine pink shimmers giving it that gorgeous satin finish. So beautiful! As many purple as I have in my collection, I have nothing like it. It's so shiny and I'm not even wearing a top coat. The formula is a bit thick but manageable. Only two coats is needed for full coverage. It's right on trend with the color of the year so just get it! You'll love it.
As I was staring at the Finger Paints rack, I spotted the last of this color and as I picked it up I was like wow, what a fabulous duochrome! Surreal Sunset is very shimmery and sparkly. It shifts from brownish purple to a greenish bronze. The color shift is very strong and beautiful. I didn't have any trouble with the formula, it is a bit thin and sheer but can be build up to full coverage in 3 coats.
Did you already pick up some Finger Paints? If yes, which ones did you get?
