Fingernail Polish review - E.L.F. and Sinful Colors

I know you get what you pay for and pay for what you get, but there are some instances where you can get more thank what you pay for. Both of these polishes cost $1.99. Here is a picture of the ELF polish 20 minutes after 3 coats dried---->

And a pic of the Sinful Colors polish at the end of the day (at least 8 hours after I put it on).

Before using Sinful Colors I gave the ELF polish the benefit of the doubt blaming my lack over overcoat. Now, I just think even though $2 is cheap, ELF polish was not worth my money.
Chipped nail polish is on my list of top five pet peeves. No thank you ELF.

All Things Sparkly

Have you ever wanted something even though you knew it would eventually be a waste? Lately, I've been attracted to sequins. Thing is I've learned that the item has to be made a certain way or I will hate wearing it.
From Walmart... These are pretty and would be beautiful under a suit. I've learned though that tanks with sequins normally are made either too short or too tight. I would buy these, wear them, fidget and give them away or store them while convincing myself I'll wear them again some day.

From Lane Bryant
So I have this one. I got it mainly because it was at an MJR sale for $6 regular $50. At that price I don't feel bad wearing it occasionally.

Awkward pic by daughter moment

This bag was given away with a purchase a few weeks ago and I had to tell myself not to make a purchase just to get one. I was successful but I still glance twice at it before I leave the store.

Doesn't the skirt say "sure you need me!" To be honest the main reason I've said no is because I have no solid idea of why I'd wear with it including shoes. So, yes it would hang in the closet.

Lastly, I confess this shirt is in my LB in basket. This shirt is GORGEOUS in person and there's a MATCHING PURSE at Charming Charlie. However, not only is it EXPENSIVE at $79.50 (my sales rules require this to be at least 70% off) I also know that the sequins would BOTHER my arms eventually. I've had a full sequin shirt before and ended up with sores on my upper arms. So, for now I'll dream of it (and the purse). However, if I see this in a MJR Sale in 2013 you best believe I'm on it!

What items are you attracted to lately?

Fat Calf Socks!

After years (literally) of trial and error I have finally found a sock that not only comes all of the way to my knee BUT also stays put! The problem hasn't necessarily been finding a sock that pulls but stays. The Merona Boot Solutions over-the-knee sock does well at both! At first I baulked at the $5/pair price, but soon went back for another color. $10 for two pair enabled me to go through my drawer and get rid of all of the unsuccessful attempts from years gone by. The sock is (for me) not too thick and not too thin. There is some extra material because it is meant to go over the knee but not so much that it aggravated me. The aggravation of pulling a sock up all day will always be greater than an irritation with extra material.
So that you know, some of the unsuccessful attempts include socks from the following: the Avenue, Target regular knee high socks, Walmart, Sears, KMart.
Are you a sock wearer? What's your favorite brand?

My Preferred Neutral

Last year I was in love with the color blush. I hunted for the muted tone in clothes, shoes, and makeup. This year, I can't get enough animal print. I'm loving any subtle pieces - shoes, boots, a shirt. Nothing to harsh, like a dress. Just pieces to use as neutrals. Here are some sample outfits from Polyvore:

Love the colors not necessarily the pieces of this one:

Here's some of what I've added to my collection:
My version of animal print shiny earrings. Forever 21 $6.80

Animal print flat Target $12

I only bought these boots because the were 70% off. I didn't like the elastic. Honestly, they are the most comfortable boot I own and you can't see the elastic with pants and jeans. Target $8

I have a very similar blouse from Lane Bryant (couldn't find pic online) $20

What's your favorite neutral this season?
