Pink & Glitter, two of my favorite things!

This is going to be a short post, but I wanted to share this pretty mani I was wearing earlier last week.  I’m wearing Rainha from Ricky’s NYC Mattese Elite Carnaval Collection with OPI’s Teenage Dream on top.  These are seriously two of my favorite polishes at the moment; a bubble gum pink layered with pink & champagne glitter!  EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!  My fav’s!  Rainha was sent to me by fellow blogger, Kit from Frances in A Beauty, she does awesome Esty Features on Fridays that have me obsessed with checking out Etsy now!


Raihna went on super smooth and took two coats for full opacity.  The color looks awesome on its on, but I couldn’t resist using T.D in one way or another.  I actually used it on my toes, too! Raihna can be purchased from Ricky’s NYC for 5.99… not too shabby.  Teenage Dream may require some hunting  since its from Katy Perry’s OPI collection from last year.  I purchased it from Beauty Collection the minute it came out.

  1. Wow! So pretty! Reminds me of cupcakes. I am so glad that you like this color and that it will get the play it deserves. Also….A new Etsy Pick of the Week drops every Sunday. I like to think of my readers all cozy on Sunday morning reading and checking out all things Etsy while sipping coffee in their PJ’s. 🙂

  2. I just followed you over from Merrit Patterson’s recaps of the Big Rich Texas Show, and I wanted to say that your blog is cute! Pink and glitter are two of my favorite things too (to look at, not to wear… …haven’t done that since I was a teenager.. …what happened to me? I used to be so cool and now I don’t even know what’s happened to me… …wait, did I have a point?) and I adore OPI. I definitely look forward to exploring your blog!

    Oh, and sorry to hear that you won’t be able to watch all the episodes for a while. I didn’t start watching until recently so now I’m going through all of season one on netflix. Hopefully season two will come out for you to enjoy soon, or you’ll be able to watch it on cable.

C'mon....lemme know what you're thinking...
