MAC paint pot in Rubenesque

Spring is in the air and it's time to adjust the makeup; One of the things I love using during this time, is this paint pot.. It is a golden color laced with peach and coral undertones. It's stunning and girly. I often use this by itself with tons of mascara for a simple but springy look. Onto to swatchy goodness:

Excuse the clumpy mascara here but wanted to show how vibrant Rubenesque can look all by itself.

Do you have Rubenesque?

Lots of love

NOTD Laura Mercier Oh La La

Love this polish. It's a milky ballerina pink color. I have several of these colors. I'm always drawn to them. This is softer than OPI Mod about you; similar to China Glaze something sweet but less opaque. I adore this color. It's a very sophisticated pink.
What's your favorite milky pink nail polish?
Hope you all have had an amazing weekend.

Blast from the past! NOTD MAC seasonal peach

I bought MAC seasonal peach when it came out with the sugarsweet collection. This polish received a lot of negative reviews when it came out because of how streaky it applies (which it does) but I find that to be the case with all the milky colored nail polishes I own. The color is very unique though because it is a peach with a very slight tone of pink making it easy to wear if you have yellow undertones (like me) and orange/yellow tones look hideous on you. I love this color. It's soft enough to be office appropriate but colorful enough to get me in the mood for spring. The below is two coats only.
Since this was a limited edition item, I'm searching high and low to find a similar color in a permanent form. If you know of anything similar let me know.
Hope you all are having an amazing week.

NOTD China Glaze Dance Baby

Spring is in the air and I'm craving pastels. This color caught my eye because it's a blue pink which lays somewhere in between a pink and a lilac. It applied really well. This is two coats but one careful coat would do. 

I love this color. Hope you all are having a great week.
Loads of love

Nars Hearts of Glass Eyeshadow

I'll start by saying, this is the only baby blue eyeshadow I own. It's a very unique color. I debated getting this for a year mainly because I love warm colors and they look best with my skin color. I shy away from blue eyeshadow period. It just doesn't flatter me but this is the pretties light eyeshadow I own. It's a very light blue with white shimmer. It opens up the eyes and gives you the effect of a wide awake and well rested look (which after running 20 miles yesterday I so desperately need).
Here is a swatch of the color. It's a shame the camera won't pick up the white shimmer.
I wore it with three coats of mascara and I darkened the crease with NARS Coconut Grove (MAC false lashes)

Do you own any baby blue shadows?

NOTD Essie Sand Tropez and Deborah Lippman Stairway to Heaven

Hi everyone,
Hope you all have had a great weekend. I'm training for a marathon this month and have been super busy. I decided to pamper myself a bit today and of course painting the nails is the first thing I do during a Sunday pampering section. I am not a glitter polish type of girl, but Deborah Lippman "Stairway to Heaven" really caught my eye...yes it's chunky glitter and it'll be difficult to remove but it makes me smile every time I look at it. What more can you ask out of a polish?  Essie Sand Tropez is a gorgeous nude. I like this even better than Essie Topless and Barefoot. It's more taupe so it gives my nails a bit more color than Topless and Barefoot. I only used one coat of each and really like the effect.

Happy Sunday everyone.
