Girls will be girls

Just when I thought I was done with buying nail polish for a while, I bought another one. But, it is so good it ought to be a necessity and it may well be one of my new favorite nail polishes. It is Sally Hansen's Bronze Ablaze, a stunning bronze with gold shimmer and olive undertones. It goes on smooth and opaque in two coats, and dries instantly just like the bottle says. 
After doing a whole post about bronze, it's no surprise that I would be obsessed with this color. I've already gone through two manicures with it, and it's the one nail polish that I want to have on my nails over and over again, especially because it is perfect for fall. 

Also, last week while walking around my neighborhood I snuck a peak into City Chemist, a local pharmacy/cosmetics boutique that sells a number of high end beauty brands. I was immediately drawn to a display of perfumes from a brand I had never seen before in other stores called Tokyo Milk. It was a rack lined with dozens of perfumes - simply packaged and simply named with a no frills, short list of the notes in the perfume.
I picked up the one called Dead Sexy, and aptly so, because this is what sexy must smell like. 
The notes are deep vanilla, exotic wood, white orchid, and ebony. It's a little bit woodsy, but still has a light floral hint in it that seems perfect for the colder months.
I've never really had a "fall scent". The perfumes that I usually pick are light, floral, and clean, so I'm excited to switch it up with this one. I love this, and I really recommend Tokyo Milk as a brand. The perfumes are small, but they are appropriately priced. And, they have so many scents, you're bound to find one that suits you. With the notes written clearly on the bottle, it's easy for the perfume connoisseurs out there to pick out their favorites. 

Now that I've got the frivolities out of my system, maybe I can get some work done =)
Have a great weekend,

  4. Ahh nail polish, a girl's best friend ;). I ALWAYS tell myself I need to cool it with buying new nail polish, but do I ever listen...nope!
    Sally Hansen hands down makes the best drugstore (and sometimes they're even better than higher-end) polishes. Have you ever tried the Xtreme wear line? Those are only $2.99 (I know the Insta-Dri ones are a wee bit pricey along with their salon ones) and are my absolute favorites, they last for a good week on your nails!

    Loving your blog as always, keep up the great work girl :)!

  10. I LOVE that nail polish! I actually was at Target picking out a nail polish and couldn't find that one, but I'm going to keep looking. And Tokyo Milk looks amazing. I love fall scents ever since Burberry.
