Everything shadows!  Lip serums!  Nail wraps!  Nerdery!

 

I've been using Espionage nail wraps lately because I have a stash of them from cons that I kind of want to use up before I get my Kickstarter backer rewards because there will be quite a few more coming in there, and then there's the subscription box coming in April.  I will have more of these than I know what to do with next year!  My point:  I've gotten really used to how easily they apply, re-apply (if you mess up and have to reposition them), and come off (when it's time to change your nails).  Tomorrow is my office holiday luncheon, so I decided to go with festive nail wraps, but I don't have any Espionage holiday wraps, so I went with some Sephora wraps I picked up last year (reindeer sweater print!  So cute!).  But...  They're totally different.  You can't reposition them.  They don't just peel right off.  Not a fan.  I've gotten spoiled by Espionage wraps, and I DO NOT CARE ONE LITTLE BIT!

 

And for Kickstarter backers who wanted to get more wraps to fill in the gap between now and when your backer rewards show up, they're have a special backer-only flash sale on the 9th that will apparently be an even better deal than they're having for the Cyber Monday sale.  They'll send out the details via a Kickstarter backer update on the 9th.  Just in case anyone cared.  I'm definitely going to be taking a look at my bank account and figuring out whether I can pick up a few as long as they're on sale.  I have enough to get me through the next couple of months before the backer stuff arrives, but it would be nice to get some more of them for super cheap!

Is this the one that has the Sherlock nail wraps? If so, just color me green with envy!

I may have to look into ordering a few. Nail polish rarely stays on my nails for a longer than 2 days.

Yes! They're in the Kickstarter group of designs currently in progress, though, so they're not quite yet available.

I'm so disappointed because it looks like they are a very nerdy makeup company which is excellent, but they have no James Bond-inspired collections.

 

How can you name yourself espionage cosmetics and not have Bond-themed anything )<

Holy shitballs, gang.  The backer flash sale information has been announced.  I was hoping that they would have $8 wraps.  That would be the same as the price for the new wraps through the Kickstarter and close to the price of what they are at cons.  Nope.  $5 a pop.  Uh...  BRB gotta completely reassess my budget and nail plan for the next few months.

 

(One of the founders is an active-duty Marine.  A few months ago, she got promoted to...  sergeant, if I recall correctly.  I think that's where the "Espionage" comes from.  There's an Eye Spy collection based on female spies like Josephine Baker and Barbara Lauwers.  They're honoring *actual* female spies.)

*cough*  I just received my Espionage backer sale order.  Combined with my existing EC wrap stash -- and *just* EC wraps -- I now have nineteen.  And more coming in February when the Kickstarter fulfillment happens.  And then four more a month from April through December.  And then I will probably pick more up at Rose City Comic Con in September.  So...  Yeah.

 

(Oh, and I placed the order on Tuesday, they shipped on Wednesday, and I have them today.  They were *ready*!)

I hope I get my Kickstarter backer sale order. I limited my backer sale to just $20 worth, because I really don't need anymore. I also can't wait to get my Kickstarter order.

I've never tried nail wraps but Espionage is really tempting (it's the Sherlock one that gets me too @mikaglam). Do they really last a couple weeks? Will they work even if my nails are pretty short?

I wish I had done the Kickstarter thing! Glow-in-the-dark wraps would be awesome. I love the space/nebulae nail wraps I have from them so much that I bought more. The cat ones didn't work well for me, though, because you need to have pretty long nails to get the whole cat's face on there or do some fiddling with the strips to make the faces sit right on your nails.

 

I normally prefer the real nail polish strips instead of "stickers," but these have good sticking quality. A lot of other brands are literally just stickers, and they come off as soon as you do the dishes or something.

Okay, they have announced the Kickstarter pickup day:  February 28th.  If there is anyone in the Portland area who would like to carpool up, let me know!  I'm seriously considering (read: absolutely planning on it) going.  If you're not a backer and still want to go, hey, they specifically said that non-backers can come along with their backer friends.  They will have all of their goodies, including sets of Fandom Cupcakes (combination bath bombs/sugar scrubs) they're making just for this event!

    • hello so I have the temptu sb makeup and I'm thinking because I got some of my makeup used that it's a little old which makes it really thick. Just making sure I can use the mixing medium and it will do the trick? If not where do I buy the stuff to thin? also I have the compressor and I'm wondering how u set it there is a knob but nothing is labeled at all
    • @Edith Awesome job! Samples rock.  Love to try them myself.... 
    • This weekend I will stay home and entertain myself using old beauty samples: Shamanuti Pumpkin Enzyme mask - this is one of my older samples. I got it in the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It smells great. I will give myself a facial.  Kani Moon Milk - this is also from the October 2017 Petit Vour box. It is heaven. It's a beach vacation in a bottle. It is a jasmine tuberose body oil with shimmer and can also be used on the hair ends and as a highlighter. I really love it. Petit Vour sent me generous and costly samples.  Nails - maybe I will use a nail polish. I'm not good at doing nails, but I do have a few nail polishes and I need to use them up. 
    • I want to mention a great YouTube channel that was really inspiring to me recently. It is Study with me - law. In case you have not seen the study with me genre of YouTube videos, these are people who live stream long study sessions so others can follow them in real time and stay focused on work. This is the channel of a young Italian attorney who is working for a judge and also studying for the judge exam. During the crisis in her country, she is working and studying at home all day every day. She will usually work on her job in the mornings and study in the afternoons, with a break every 90 minutes or so, and longer meal breaks. Her schedule is not too easy and yet not too difficult, and her videos really helped me to keep motivated when I had my second job working at home. Sadly that job was cut short by the current crisis. I wish I could live like this young woman - with her studious life and huge, beautiful law books. 
    • HEY! You dont seem fat to me. I believe you look wonderful. But still if it feels like you need to loose weight then i can give you some easy tips: You should go on a calorie deficit diet. Also start intermittent fasting that is eating only for 7 to 8 hours a day just. I know you dont like working out. But try doing something what you like in order to boost this process. A walk or dance or playing a sport etc. Its up to you completely but just give it a thought. And last one PATIENCE. This is the smallest required by all but the tuffest to follow . This weight loss wont just happen in a day. It may take time. That may be long too but you need to keep yourself focused in order to achieve what you want so YOU SHOULD KEEP GOING. ALL THE BEST FOR YOUR JOURNEY!
