Do you really need Sinful Colors Prosecco?

Have you guys seen all the hype around Sinful Colors Prosecco? People are going crazy over it! I found it at Rite Aid the other day and picked it up even though I wasn't sure if I would like it or not. I'm here to help you decide if you need it or not. 

Here is one coat. You can see that it's a little sheer at one coat. It's a taupey base color with gold flakies and gold shimmer. 
Two coats makes it pretty opaque, if you do thicker coats you may be okay with just two but for me you could still see obvious VNL. 
At three coats it was full opaque, this picture shows no topcoat. It's showing up a little more cool toned/gray than it is in person though, it fits definitely in the taupe category, it's got very warm undertones. 
This macro is more the true color of full three coat color. 

So what do you think of it? Something you need to hunt down or something you're going to pass on? I like it, but I'm not completely in love with it, it's not the most unique taupe/nude color in my collection.

More halloween collections! Are you excite?! I am! I have the This Is Halloween collection from Dashing Housewife Polish. It is stunning!

Tomb It Up
This gray is stunning! It's got micro flakies of all kinds! Swatch shows 2 easy coats plus topcoat.
Flakies! Love! 

Frightfully Witchy
This polish is so cute! Those blue flakies are the best thing I've ever seen. Swatch shows 3 coats plus topcoat. 
I love the combo on this one, from the base color to the glitters, it's perfect! 

Ghostly Glow
This polish! If you know me then you know my weakness for white crellys. This one rocks my socks off. Swatch shows 3 coats plus topcoat.
There's also a really snazzy blue shimmer running through it too but it was camera shy. 
Plus it glows blue! What! This was charged for a few minutes in the sun as that made the glow way intense. 

The Ravens Call
I love me a good black holo and this is no exception! Swatch shows 2 coats no topcoat.
And the obligatory sun shot. 

Well hello Halloween! This one screams Halloween to me and I love it. Swatch shows 2 coats plus topcoat. 
Oh yeah! This one glows too. 
LOOK AT IT. Just look! Again this was charged in the sun because that makes the glow more intense. Love!

Horrifying American Airlines Experience

Okay guys, you know me and you know I wouldn't post something like this unless I felt absolutely compelled to. Yesterday my husband, son, and I were flying out to Ohio for his brothers wedding. We went to the fresno airport to catch our 1:45 pm flight only to find out it's been delayed until 2:30. This puts us in Dallas too late to catch our flight to Pittsburgh. The agent at the desk told us that we had two options, fly to Dallas and they would put us in a hotel so we could catch the next flight to Pittsburg or stay in fresno and leave to Dallas tomorrow. We chose to go to Dallas on our scheduled flight since we were already there in Fresno. We get through security and settled down at our gate. Shortly after they start boarding and when we get to the door to start boarding they tell us to back up, Dallas is on flight restriction: no flights in or out. Around 3:30 we finally board and take off around 4 pm. The flight is uneventful and around 8:40 pm we make it safely to Dallas. Then we find out there's a plane at the gate we're scheduled to be at so we have to wait. We do not disembark this plane until 10:20 pm. When we finally get off the plane and a bunch of runaround over where to go to talk to someone about a hotel we find a long line about 10 people deep. When we get to the front around 11 pm we're told that there's nothing that they can do for us in terms of a hotel and the other agent shouldnt have told us that. Now you need to understand, hubs and I are on a very VERY strict budget. We had a little over $200 for the whole trip. Frustrated we leave to go find our baggage only to be told that the baggage claim at terminal C doesn't have our baggage, it's at terminal A. By the time we finally get our baggage it's now 12:20 am and we have hotel reservations at a motel 8. When we walk outside there is a line about 20 people deep waiting for taxis. At around 1:00 am we get into a shuttle with about 9 other people and are off to our hotel. Once we get to our destination the driver comes out and tells us that it's $20 PER PERSON for the shuttle. As I'm typing this I'm laying in bed in a nasty room that smells like smoke trying to sleep because I have to be up at 5 am to catch our next flight on time. Overall, I am scarred from this experice flying and extremely frustrated and upset at the service (abuse) we have suffered from American Airlines. It has made this whole trip a literal nightmare, I have cried almost nonstop, it's literally one thing after another going wrong. I honestly think that I am going to have anxiety or panic attacks after this experience because the thought of getting on to another airplane is making me shaky and extremely apprehensive. I hope you guys don't mind this post but I needed to get it all out. I'll end this with a happy note and share a picture of my son, who was a serious champ through all of this.

Hello Halloween!

Seriously who's ready for Halloween? I am! The older I get the more enthused I get over the holiday, I'm backwards haha! 
Today I have what I have dubbed as the best collection ever to show you. It's Duh Nail Polish's Halloween collection and it is STUNNING. 

Little Bit Devilish

Well hello there sexy red jelly! This polish has loads of iridescent hexes and shimmer. Swatch shows 2 coats with topcoat.
Now I'm not normally a fan of reds but holy moly, this one knocked my socks off! It's so complex!

The Cauldron Bubbled Over

Oh my oh my, this one is another stunner. It's got a super squishy black jelly base with so many different types of glitter I can't even. Swatch shows 3 coats plus topcoat. 
I love those iridescent squares! 

Relax I'm A Ninja
This polish toes the line between being a deep teal and deep green but to me it looks more green so that's what I'm going with haha. Swatch shows 2 coat plus topcoat. 

Flew In On My Broom

No halloween collection is complete without a slime green polish haha! I love this one! Swatch shows 3 coats plus topcoat. The triangles were a bit sparse but not in a bad way you know? I love that they're there but I'm glad it doesn't look like triangles are taking over my nail haha. 

Okay. Someone needs to give Danyl an award, she consistent manages to create AMAZING polishes. I love every one I've ever tried from the glitter mix to the formula they're just perfection. These are available now so grab yours from her store ( before they're gone!
