Rimmel "Rapid Ruby" with Enchanted Polish "Djinn In A Bottle"

Today I desperately needed to redo my mani and asked boyfriend what colour I should do. "Red". Umm, ok. Not a problem. Red is my fav polish colour and the Ottawa Senators (hockey) are playing tonight (team colour is red). That works. But an "untried" red? Tricky, tricky. This polish isn't untried but I haven't done a blog post about it. I also decided to step it up and make it holo. Why? Why not?

Nina Ultra Pro - Bittersweet (possibly my Breakfast Club lemming?!)

As some of you may already know, my ultimate lemming polish is the one worn by Molly Ringwald in the movie, "The Breakfast Club".

I must have about 15 "almost right" shades, but I'm still searching! This shade by Nina Ultra Pro comes very close -- either way, it's really pretty!

Picture Polish "Swagger"

Digging through my stash, I came across a particularly intriguing shade of blue that I hadn't used before -- piCture pOlish's "Swagger"! This colour screams spring to me. :)

Julep LuLu & Harmony

I recently received my March box (The Pop! Collection) from Julep. I was drawn in by the pastel shades this month (I'm an 80's teen!). It was hard to decide what to wear but settled on "LuLu" with the glitter topper "Harmony" to finish.

February Empties!

So as I continue on this delightfully un-fun no-buy this year I must say, it's kind of cool to use up products and see what I go through on a regular basis. :)

Here is the February goodies!

Feeling Springy! Lilypad Lacquer "Apple Crisps"

It's still really cold here but the sun is out and next week it will be above 0C -- predictions that Wednesday will be a high of 9C and sunny! I am so eager for spring -- I want to see green things! Sick of the snow, ice, wind, 800 layers of clothes, etc. Who isn't?! I love winter but by March I'm always a bit antsy for the warmer days of spring -- you know those days when the air feels soft and you can wear a t-shirt outside and feel the breeze on your bare arms -- awesome!

Anyway, since I'm feeling oh-so-springy, I selected an untried polish from my stash -- Lilypad Lacquer's "Apple Crisps". A gorgeous scattered holo brighter-than-mint green (if that makes any sense!).

Dollish Polish - Expecto Patronum

A Harry Potter polish to die for. :)
This has been a long-time lemming for me so I was REALLY happy when Dollish Polish restocked! I stumbled on it by accident while looking up a polish for someone else. Technically I'm on a no-buy but March 5th is my 3-year anniversary with my boyfriend and he bought it for me. Not in a "buy this for me now" way but in the way that anything related to Severus Snape, Lily, Petronus charms, and "Always" turns me into a puddle of tears because there is nothing more sad! Plus, my boyfriend and I have a majorly complicated 20-year history and almost didn't end up together.
