All beached out...


Wow, what a weekend. (I work Wednesdays-Sundays; Mondays and Tuesdays are my "weekend".) It was one of my best friends' birthdays, so I spent most of the weekend hanging out with her, mostly at the beach.


The first color is Barielle Shades' Sneak A Peek. Sneak A Peek is from Barielle's Fall/Winter collection; a better known shade is Date Night, a deep forest green. I am admittedly, not a gigantic green fan so I passed. Another color I considered is Hidden Hideaway, which I found too close to Zoya Yasmeen (but I will probably buy it anyway in due time). I think it's an underrated color; it's a light silvery dove gray. Please excuse the bubbles; I was SMRT enough to attempt a manicure while at the beach. I don't know why I even tried while out at the beach; especially since my local beach is known for a lot of Gulf winds. I've also tried attempting a mani while sitting by the pool; wow, what a thick, goopy mess! I still feel obligated to apologize to my bottles of China Glaze Lubu Heels and OPI Lincoln Park At Midnight for that faux pas.


The same night, I stopped by a Bealls Outlet near the beach and scored an awesome haul. They sometimes have vinyl grab bags full of 10 random polishes (usually pink/red Maybellines). However, this time I found one full of L'Oreals, half of which definitely piqued my interest. They included Blue Metal, a dark blue that I think resembles OPI's Yoga-ta Get This Blue; B. Outrageous, a yellow shimmer; Treble & Tint, a coral duochrome with a green shimmer; then my favorites: B. Innocent, a Bijou Facets sheer full of tiny thread (!!!) teal confetti glitter and Crushed Opal, a sheer with *gasp* FLAKIES!!! I don't own any Nfu-Ohs (...yet), so I was elated to see this jewel! The bag was $6.99; I'll end up using the other 5 boring nudes/reds for future frankening endeavors.

I'm ashamed to describe my current nail state...I've had on the same manicure for a record 4 days. I've been bouncing from place to place and last night was my first night in my own bed in 3 days. On top of that, beach sand is BRUTAL on nail polish! I have to work early tomorrow morning, so I'm not even sure I'll get to fixing this chipped mess not even worthy to call a manicure tonight.

I'm also considering a serious low-buy/no-buy for the rest of March. It's only March, but I've already more than doubled my 2008 total. On top of the grab bag, I finally caved into OPI's French collection and bought Eiffel For This Color. My current lemming is Barielle Shades Swizzle Stix, which I haven't seen locally. Also, have y'all seen Scrangie's latest posts? Essie has released some promo pics of what might be their summer collection: greens, blues, and yellow! I am totally stoked; if this turns out to be true, I will probably order my first full Essie collection. I hope it is; I'm sick of pinks and reds! PLEASE, ESSIE, PLEASE LET IT BE TRUE!!!

OMG, I'd do anything (no, ANYTHING) to be on that beach right now :)
I'm so sick of this cold we are having up here...
Gorgeous polishes as well!

Wish I could jump into your picture. I haven't been to a beach in forever. I love the ocean! Never tried a manicure though, that was too funny. Nice haul you got there. Love grab bags. There is always something you can use in there. Love your blue sparkly manicure. Let's hope Essie has gotten the message. Variey is what we want, not just pinks and beiges.

Nice haul for $6.99., I wish we had a Bealls here. :(

Vanessa--I'm about to go back! I think I have a problem, lol

Lucy--I think they might have! I heard that the blues are for sure going to be a collection this summer; I will definitely be picking it up once it hits online.

Brooke--Bealls is an FL chain; I just checked to see if there's either a Bealls/Burke Outlet in OK, but it's only in FL, AL, AR, AZ, CA, GA and LA. sorry :(

In recent years, some council or ex-council high-rises in the United Kingdom, including Trellick Tower, Keeling House and The Barbican Estate, have become popular with young professionals due to their excellent views, desirable locations and architectural pedigrees, and now command high prices. After a gap of around 30 years, new high-rise flats are once again being built in Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, Cardiff, Liverpool, London, and Manchester however this time for wealthy professionals. Their developers market these properties by using the American term 'apartment buildings', perhaps in an effort to distance these newer buildings from the older tower blocks from the 1950s and '60s.

Because it's not clear to anyone at the international level that the Russians and the Chinese are willing to press along with Assad indefinitely." said Aram Nerugizian, a visiting fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Madrid (CNN) -- Spanish unions were making final preparations for a general strike Thursday to protest the new conservative government's labor reforms and austerity cuts.
