Saturday Gun and Knives show!

The Nails:

Gunshow Nails

I got some tactical knives for Chris and got to see some beautiful knives from a friend of mine Phil Adams:



I also helped my boy Baxter get a scope for his gun and then got to see a really neat decolletage knife:


Had I more money I may have picked it up.

It was a smorgasbord of guns for Baxter and Knives for me, we were there for HOURS.


The next day was the Westcott Street Cultural Fair, so I wore my Yay Prop 8 nails:

Happy Westcott Nails!

I was having a great time until Baxter called me and told me he'd found a tortoise in rough shape that some one had abandoned in an apartment he managed.

Knowing that I knew my way around reptiles and amphibians he asked if I would take it and get it healthy.

I took it, little did I know that my ex- abused, ex-fighting dog Kayne Micheal would adopt it and decide that it was "his" tortoise.





Today Chris came home with a piece of italian marble, a metal lamp, a full spectrum lamp, and a huge underbed storage container. The Tortoise now takes up an entire coffee table.

Today I have my Barbie nails, and tonight I have to have naked nails and toes because I have surgery in the morning :(

Barbie Nails

Well. Thats my update. There will be more n a week. I am going to be going into surgery I need to go do my pre surgical B.S.

OK I am not a slacker REALLY!

I have been fighting some depression and getting ready to have surgery on my low back.

However today I actually got off my keister and actually wrote a review of my Fynnirae haul on Associated Content

Keep peeking for it to get published!

I also picked up some new Sinful colors polishes and am going to review them.

However I have to say what is up with Sinful Colors pulling Daddy's Girl (my FAVE purple) and then re-releasing it for a Halloween color?!)

This nail freak is unsure that screams Halloween about purple.


I have had so many freaking manicures that I have not uploaded....

Lets see....Here is a white polish that for the life of me I can't remember what it was called...


So yeah. I have more but I have to upload from my camera.

I've been kwazi-useless. Well time for puppy-chabra and me to get a snack.

We leave you with this picture:

Don't hate us 'case we beautiful

Quickie post- Ciate worst customer service.

I have been recieveing this e-mail for TWO months.

Hello Guest,

If you are still interested in making a purchase then please click on and visit your order history once you have logged in.

Notice canceled is spelled wrong.

I was going to purchase from them until the shipping and handling charges came up, as well as reading reviews from other nail bloggers about Ciate wear (or lack there of) and drying time.

For the money I think that I will keep to my native land for now.

More nail updates soon, my google account was compromised and I was ill again, but I have been a busy little bee!!!

Fyrinnae Makeup review, edit: Best Customer Service!

So my Fyrinnae makeup came while I was down with the sickness.

I managed to do swatches of the gloss and eye shadows, as well as a full look using the bronzer and sunkissed finishing powder.

So without further ado lets get started:

Here is the swatches:

Fyrinnae Lipgloss and shadow swatches

Left to right: Acidic Cherry Lip Gloss, Candy Coated Eye Shadow, Kamikaze Eye Shadow, and Delvian Eye Shadow.

Here is a look using the Sunkissed Finishing Powder, The Medium Bronzer, the Candy Coated Eye Shadow, and the Acidic Cherry Lip Gloss.

Fyrinnae Lipgloss and shadow demoed!

So on to the review!

I am a long time MAC fanatic. I still have much love for MAC but I have to say for 5.90 a pop these loose shadows pack a WHOLLOP amount of pigment! And bonus? They are VEGAN.

So to prep my lids for Fyrinnae I used my normal primer of a NYC mineral concealer patted on my lids and then applied "Candy Coated". This shadow stayed true and vibrant for 6 hours of humid sweaty schlepping around with no AC and the windows down in my crappy car.

Which I cannot say for my MAC eye makeup.

I was looking too, no creasing in the brow line, no flaking off, the color seemed true and vibrant until I took it off with a chamois cloth and diluted baby wash. I also have to say much to my delight and surprise that the Fyrinnae eye shadows not only came off in one or two swipes, but they left no staining!

Again, something that I can't say for some of my other bright eye shadows.

The finishing powder looked really white when I got it and at first made me a little nervous. But I am glad I used it anyway. It blended in easily with my Kabuki brush and gave my skin a pearl like sheen without looking "powdery" or "ghostly" I used the bronzer like a blush and it warmed me just enough to look "healthy" but not like I put on bronzer.

Which in my opinion is what a bronzer should do.

I have eczema and was unsure if these formulas would irritate my skin, but I wore then two days without any itching, rashes or problems. Color me impressed.

Now for the one product I am not so thrilled with.

The Acidic Cherry Lip Gloss.

Perhaps I should have chosen Blood Stains instead. Perhaps I am a lip gloss snob. But I am not impressed with the Lipgloss from Fyrinnae.

The color looked pretty, but it was difficult to get on evenly, smelled strongly, was extremely tacky and difficult to work with, and once I applied it, even after using the tried and trusted apply, blot, reapply method, came off within an hour.

It also left my lips feeling dry and despite the promise of non transfer was sticky and when I kissed my fiance goodbye he said "Eww your lip gloss is sticky and stinky!"

As I said, perhaps I would have been better off with Blood Stains. I told the lovely staff at Fyrinnae the trouble I had with their lip gloss and was almost within the hour of posting my review sent an e-mail offering an appology and offering to send me Blood Stains or Okinawa Beauty with my order that I had placed to I could see if another lip gloss was more to my fancy.

What DIVINE customer service! Does anyone actually perform customer service anymore? Well apparently Fyrinnae does and they also care about what their customer think of their products.

Which to this writer and reviewer means quite a lot.

On to the Eye Shadows and insert the Squeal of delight!

The Eye Shadows I loved so much I just ordered two more and a sample of Pixie Epoxy from their Website which is here:

I highly suggest you load up on some samples on eye shadows, bronzer, and finishing powders! They are vegan and well made and work wonderfully. I honestly cannot stop playing with them and have already informed Mr. Rogue that I WILL be purchasing three full size pots once I figure out which colors best suit me.

The question is, can I narrow it down to three?

Just a quickie post

I am alive and just got my Fyrinnae order yesterday! *swoon*

Even though I had the throat plague and a fever from hades I managed to swatch all three eye makeup samples, Lip Gloss, the Bronzer and Sun kissed Finishing powder I had to have.

Thank you to Black Nail Polish and Lip Gloss for fueling the addiction.

I will post pictures tomorrow.

One thing also I am going to post now is a tutorial that saved my nail. I broke my first nail. Split the sucker sideways. Right into the meat of the nail!

So I went online, looked up nail repair and watched this tutorial:

I bought brush on nail glue,got an organic unbleached cotton tea bag (from old tea I didn't like) Salon Science Instant Artificials.

Then I applied two coats of China Glaze "Spontaneaous" and you can't tell where the patch is.
