3 more days till the weekend!

ERHMAGAWD… i can't believe it's only tuesday…

but no fear.. i has some nailage to show you!

for this mani i used OPI - Can't Let Go, Ulta3 - Black Satin, Glam Polish - Graveyard Smash, Celestial Cosmetics - Matte Top Coat and China Glaze - Glistening Snow

still al lady of leisure… i've applied to so many jobs that i've lost count..
if i'm not baking or doing miscellaneous house work.. i'd be wasting away with korean dramas. understood that i don't work.. i still look forward to weekends.. simply because that's when the penis is home and i have company... GAH my life is so average.

well.. i guess it's back to the lab with me to mix up more of Smudged Valentines Day trio bottles!
(also known as being distracted by more korean drama while inhaling polish fumes)

mulanpoopy's cuticle and hand care

So… about a week ago.. Nicki from Celestial Cosmetics sent me some cuticle oil to review, and since then i've been using it every night before bed and in between my power hour manis.. figured i'd do a mulanpoopy's hand care blog post while i was at it.

to be honest.. for the most part i fortunately have pretty decent cuticles.. they don't grow by the pounds and they're reasonably hydrated even without products, but after i was introduced to skin care from a group of women whom are also nail enthusiasts.. my whole hand life has been changed.

these three products are now my go to for hand jizz. pictured from left to right is L'Occitane Creme Mains Peaux Seches Dry Skin Hand Cream, Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics Lemony Flutter and Celestial Cosmetics Eclipse Cuticle Oil.

every night before bed is the best time to give your hands some TLC. mostly because you don't go touching every thing you see after you've lathered your hands in oils. i remember the first time i started this routine.. i did it mid afternoon because that was when i received my package.. then i thought it was a good idea to go read a book.. yeah.. not so smart on my part.. but thank goodness i have since learned! usually my nails would have polish on them.. but every now and then i like to give them a breather and this is when i do this the most.. but it works just as awesome even if you have polish on! my routine would be a drop of Nicki's Eclipse Cuticle Oil on each finger concentrating on the cuticles obviously.. and lightly rub into each finger. i found that the cuticle oil is so light and refreshing and has a really fruity scent! then i get the ever so epic Lush Cosmetics Lemony Flutter and rub this all over my hands and into my cuticles letting my hands swim in the two products. remember. a little goes a long long way! then i literally just sit with my palms on my knees while watching tv to let it percolate and then i go to bed! it might seem greasy but have no fear! even if you happen to rub it on your blankie or bed sheets.. it doesn't leave oily marks. it's just sweet smelling ultimate hand hydrating awesomeness!

and for when i know i'm going to be touching all the things.. but my hands feel a little dry.. i use the Creme Mains Peaux Sexhes from L'Occitane.
i was introduced to L'Occitance by one of my best friends who has eczema and because she had problem skin it was very difficult for her to find a moisturising cream that helped soothe her eczema and dry skin till she found the Creme Mains Peaux Seches and she swears by it being her miracle hand cream, so i thought i'd give it a go. to be honest.. in the beginning having not really needed it.. i couldn't explain paying 40 bucks for hand cream.. till i tried it at the store.. and i've never looked back. they also come in a carry friendly small tube of 30ml. a pea size amount on the palm of your hand is all you need for the both of your hands and it has a light scent, nothing heavy or suffocating.

you could get away with only one or two of these products.. but seriously.. Eclipse and Lemony Flutter together is going to change your life!

Greetings nailers!

Today i bring you my review and swatches of Nicki's Celestial Cosmetics polishes!

First up is Ocean Mist

Ocean Mist is an aqua/blue linear holographic polish

here i have 3 thin coats with a top coat

T's In A Tizz

T's In A Tizz is a spearmint green linear holographic polish

3 thin coats with top coat for my swatch

both polishes were very easy to use, smooth consistency and just so user friendly. none of this thick gluggy nonsense that can happen with holographic polishes

for my swatches i also used her base coat and quick dry top coat. although i didn't get to see much of the base coat in action.. the quick dry top coat really is quick dry and better yet.. doesn't cause shrinkage and that's absolutely winning in my books!

will have to try out the other bad boys a few more times to get a feel for them.. but so far i'm loving the quick dry top coat and the smell of the cuticle oil! so light and fruity!

all of these babies can be purchased HERE!

just for funsies i also did a gradient using Ocean Mist and T's In A Tizz

isn't it so purdy?!

first post of 2014

wow.. where do i begin…

2013 has been an interesting year to say the least.. but lets be honest.. we say that every year…every time a year ends we sit and reflect on the things that  happened.. things that should have happened.. things we wish had happened.. and things we wish hadn't happened.. then we start to set up unrealistic goals that we want to achieve in the year that's to come… when deep down inside we know that it probably won't happen because we'll keep procrastinating.
for example.. there are many days in a year when i happen just not eat meat that whole day.. but for whatever reason.. whenever Lent rolls around.. and i have to fast every friday till Easter.. not eating meat seems to become SUCH a challenge.. and everywhere i go for that whole day all i can think about is all the meats i want to eat… so i've found that instead of telling myself i'm going to do something.. i'm just going to do it. just like all those times i've told myself i'm not going to buy polish for a period of time.. i end up seeing all the sales or swatches of awesome polishes and i cave. whereas i just actively don't buy anything… i'm fine. it's so weird.. goes to show everyones brains works in strange ways.

i brought in the New Year with the penis and his friends.. the regional plan was to go to his mates house.. have a small bbq and pre game.. then head out to the city.. yeah.. i didn't even make it to the countdown.. my last memory of being conscious was around 10pm when my friend had messaged me and i sent her a picture of myself with a girl who ad happened to be sitting next to me at the time..
it's not like i even had that much to drink! but because we played Kings (known as circle of death in Australia) i absolutely died. --and here i am always complaining about not being able to go out.. and missing all my partying days.. when i can't even stay up past 1030pm..

this was my New Year mani. OPI - Red My Fortune Cookie. China Glaze - Glistening Snow and some nail studs i bought from Born Pretty Store

i'm not sure if you can tell.. but i obviously didn't have much to eat.. and i had Rekorderlig mixed with some Vodka… Champagne… wine and a small cup of punch.. i was in for a rude slap.. but of course everything seemed like a good idea at the time because i was being excitable.

this is the only picture i have from that night.. and i don't even have one with the penis.. yes.. i know.. i should be shot.

i'm pretty sure i passed out a smidgen after this photo was taken.. i just went to the bathroom and threw up my brains.. the penis was very sweet and tended to me.. when i ended up on the couch.. i kept gesturing for him to go join the party.. because i thought that i could just rest a little then pick up where i left off.. turns out i passed out.. and when i heard people shouting Happy New Year.. i woke up and moved my arm to find him.. but he wasn't next to me.. minutes later when he came back.. i threw a sad because he didn't stay with me for the countdown.. hahahahaha. he got upset thinking.. i told him to go.. and when he went.. i got upset.. i remember crying about coming all the way here from Sydney and that he didn't even care… (i found out later on that he had only left me for a few minutes to go and light sparklers.. and by the time everyone had realised they had missed the countdown.. he came back.. and that was just as i came to…) then i passed out till the next morning and woke up to find him sleeping next to me on the couch. yeah.. not my most attractive moment i'll admit. i spent the entire next day a nauseous blob. he was very sweet and made me tea.. which i threw up so graciously.. and we decided to go home since i had nothing left in my tummy.. and let me tell you.. when you're hungover and sick.. it feels like you can feel every single rock you drive over on the road.. it was awful. we finally made it home and i just blobbed for the rest of the day…

this is why i'm writing this post on the second.. i am finally hangover free… but i still feel a little squirmish when i see or hear alcohol…
