Help me!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

You'll get no help from me. I've bought over 50 new polishes in the past 2 weeks! smiletongue.gif

 

On that note, I chose It Girl with Blakely, Cassie, & Adele add-ons. Now, let's see if I have the self-control to let it stay that way and not upgrade before the deadline. laughno.gif

I was really close to picking the Bombshell box - I saw the pink and bronze and was like Ooh! But then I realised that I've got some polishes in closes that are very, very close to those shades, so I switched to the BoHo Glam, because I don't have much in the way of blues. Picked Adele for an add on. =)

has anyone come across sneak peek maven swatches? i can't find any and although i'm set on getting the upgrade, it would make me even more excited to see unaltered swatches.

I can't decide between Modern Beauty (for the Sea Salt Texture Spray) and Boho Glam (for Karen).  I'm getting Adele and Fireworks regardless of what box I choose.  It would be cheaper to get the Modern Beauty box with Adele, Fireworks, and Karen as add ons, so I think I'll stick with that.

I decided to re-sort my polishes by brand instead of by color, and I think I may have found a dupe for Bunny, i love the idea of a white with gold glitter, but none of the swatches impressed me, so I found Essie Tennis Corset today, I got it for $1.99 at TJ's , and over white it looks awesome!

1000

 

I am also trying to talk myself out of Blakely (wtf name is that, reminds me of this picture eusa_wall.gif)

1000

 

 

anyway, I found zoya Adina which over a dark teal base will probably give the same effect.

where do people get those nail circles for swatches? thanks!
Try eBay. I went with the stick ones myself, 200 of them for maybe $10? It's awesome. I swatched everything and have the swatches organized by color on rings (labeled with brand and color name) then alphabetized the bottles by brand. My OCD is showing, but it makes it super easy to find what I want :)

Sara Blakely is the youngest self-made female billionaire on _Forbes_magazine's list of world billionaires. She invented Spanx. Dunno if that's where they were going with that one, though.

You can buy the circle ones at Sally's. Like accostak, I use the sticks. You can find both types super cheap on Amazon & eBay.

I thought their name scheme was female first names, which Zoya and Julep both seem to have taken a bit of liberty with and have ventured into stripper name territory (Chyna etc.)  Why set yourself up to be so restricted farther in the future when presumably you will be more successful and make more colors! There really are a limited number of names. 

 

OPI is still my top pick for clever polish names from a major brand. The indy polish brands followed suit and generally have clever names.

I know of a couple little girls named Blakely (and Trista of Bachelorette fame has a Blakesly). It's unique for sure, it falls into the current trend of surnames and first names for girls. It was #545 on the Social Security name list last year.

I wish the upgrade had fireworks- I would be soooo in- right now I'm modern beauty + Adele+ fireworks+ Blakely. I would spend the extra $15 for a full upgrade but then I miss out on fireworks. I just can't justify spending $60 to get the full upgrade with fireworks.

interesting! 

 

I was just reading somewhere that the sweet spot for names is picking #50-200 and using the "correct/formal" spelling

 

that way they are common enough that most people will know how to spell it without asking you for clarification, but not common enough that your kid will end up with 3 friends with the same name ala brittney, megan, sarah etc.

 

because its nice to want your baby to have a unique name, but its a bit selfish to give them something that will create unnecessary confusion their whole lives.

I still haven't decided what to do for this month.  I really love Karen in Boho Glam and Adele but I'm not sure about Faye.  Not sure if I should go with Boho Glam or skip.  This decision would be a lot easier if the sea salt spray were in our boxes instead of the dry oil.  I've been wanting to try a sea salt spray forever.

I'm pretty sure you can skip as long as you want. I haven't seen anything about them closing your account. Even if you did and you want to come back, they'll reinstate your Jules.

    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
    • I mostly prefer k-beauty products. I use Missha foundation, I have been using this from last 3 years. It has different shades we can choose according to our skintone. And also I have suggested this to my friends and cousins, they all are every satisfied with this products. I always prefer to shop from Althea beauty store for all k-beauty products, because it provides best discounts on products.
    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now.
