Link Love!! (because I can't think of a better name for it at the moment)

  Hi all!!  Katie at Lustrous Lacquer has this great weekly feature of blog posts she's been particularly enjoying, and I think it's a fabulous idea.  So, without any time or frequency commitment, here are some of my favorite recent posts from around the beauty blogosphere.  Enjoy!!

  The Polish Hideout shows off the four exclusive Butter London Brick Lane polishes {HERE}.  Butter is on top of their game with this limited edition "fashion sized" set and you won't find any prettier swatches than Yun's.

  From Polish, With Love reviews the gorgeous duochrome glassfleck Milani Bella Blue nail lacquer {HERE}.  I've been sort of obsessed with this set since discovering the fabulousness that is the Bella Blue lipstick and I'm of the opinion that if you can still find any of the limited release, limited edition set, you should probably snap those suckers up.

  Beauty Judy shares facts and etiquette on how to handle press samples {HERE}.  Section two is full of truth, and I'm going to interject my own opinion here, very briefly-- be gracious and graceful, always.

  Pink Sith has some of the NARS fall 2014 offerings up on her blog, including two new and reformulated eyeshadows {HERE} and nail polish {HERE}.  It's been a while since I treated myself to some NARS, but if anyone can convince me to splurge, it's Pink Sith.

  Valiantly Varnished, fellow fashion lover, recreated a galaxy manicure based off the print of a Modcloth dress {HERE}.  I seriously don't know which I like more-- the nails of the dress.

  So there you have it!  In related news, is anyone else as excited to see the new Zoya Naturels 2 set as I am?!!?!  I've been stoked since I saw the ad in the back of the latest Glamour a couple weeks ago.

  Thanks for reading and have a loverly day!! ♥♥

Butter London Ladybird

  Hi all!!  You know I love RED, but I find it somewhat difficult to wear during the summer, as I'm drawn most to deep and dramatic, especially on nails.  When Butter London announced their exclusive NYFW shade this past February, a juicy tomato red jelly called Ladybird, I about died of excitement, though.  Butter's got a lineup of the most perfect classic reds and I was stoked about this new personality and the warm weather possibilities.  I'm not one to buy Limited Edition polishes, though, so when a dear blogger friend gifted me with Ladybird, I about died of excitement, again, lol (this is a dangerous polish).

Cult Nails Falling Hard + Feedback

  Hi friends!!  A discussion on favorite polish combos on facebook the other day prompted me to bring out my favorite flakie topper and one of the pinks I've been obsessing over lately and put them together.  This is Cult Nails Feedback, an iridescent pink and gold mylar flakie, over Falling Hard, a sweet, bright, super saturated orchid pink creme.
