Wow I'm thrilled! I just announced my choice on attending EDC this year on the Book and so many awesome people showed love. I'm more at ease now knowing there are other light dance lovers. My costume preparations along with the other chicks will be revealed here soon. You will get the whole prepping till EDC for sure. Any questions just ask. Any pictures I post are not to show off it's an event we are prepping for and just showing you all the hard work that goes into a costume. Illamasqua is definitely a line I will be using in my make up looks.

Have you heard about EDC?? It's the Electric Daisy Carnival!! Just music and awesomeness. My husband had been involved with anime conventions in Florida Anna yeah they have three day raves but seriously I love the huge "main stream" raves! The music, atmosphere, and good company I love it all, oh I also get to wear costumes (yes I ask one of those who wishes Halloween was often). This year EDC I'm going with fur! I will be sharing my progress on the building and assembling of my attire here. Your Welcome...lol I kid but I wool be sharing my progress till EDC here for sure. Links of where I got what from where will be available, I have no secrets. I wish to build something from Toki Doki or the Unicorno series one day, but baby steps to awesome eh? :)

You may have seen these jars of removers growing up and even hated them. Well I have now grown to love these! For personal use and convenience these tubs have become "life savers". I no longer have to mess with cotton balls or damage miscellaneous surfaces because of where I place my acetone drenched cotton balls. I got this remover tub from CVS for under $4. The inner is now filled with plastic/rubber for finger insertion instead of the sponge thingy like back in the 80s (when I first saw one). This does dry my hands/fingers but it gets the job done quick and easy. I change my polish daily so this really helps me out. I didn't see other selections on remover liquids (acetone free and so on) so I bought the 100% acetone one. It claims to remove glitter with ease....we shall see. I will be keeping this tub for a while (till it gets gross) you can dump out the old liquid and fill it with new remover. Which I will do! :) yay for more polish changes with ease!! This is especially good for swatching days.

Swatched! Today I was able to swatch these awesome liquid sands and man so worth the $$. My thumb to pinky is Jinx, Tiffany case, honey Ryder, pussy galore, and solitaire. The application was easy fast drying and I only did two coats.

Be a bombshell is adorable. I really like this pin-up focused line... reminds me of The Balm. I got this gloss in my IPSY, I forget what month, and so far I like it. I cant say love. It is brighter in the tube but goes all almost jelly like but a darker tint not bright at all. Its consistency is thick and semi-sticky. Two kiss offs (on napkin and thick paper) and the color is faint. There is no taste nor smell. The Bare Minerals Moxie in Dare Devil is glossy too. It has what looks like shimmers but none appears but a nice shine. I love Moxies. This brand makes your lips tingly, I love that, the color is mauvish and really compliments tan complexions. The mauve tint stays a while and its not thick or sticky when applied. I am a repeat buyer of Moxies this color just adds to my gloss collection!

This polish is definitely on the sheer side. My index finger has 3 coats, middle has 2 coats, and last two fingers have a coat each. It dries with a glossy finish but first coat is almost jelly-like. I have to say though I love the formula. It dries even and there are no bubbles! You could use this pink with French manicures using one to two coats. All in all good product, I would buy this. The three coats though can almost say it's almost Nicki Minaj worthy.

This set was released at Hot Topic in late 2012. One bottle retailed for $7.50 each. I was lucky enough to get all 4 bottles. These colors are opaque after two coats and dry to a semi gloss finish. The "white" is iridescent, I will swatch with undies next time. All in all I'm happy with the polishes in quality, and quantity.
Today was awesome! I grabbed two Illamasqua polishes, Scorch & Vice, I want Muse next! Stopped by Hot Topic and ran to the My Little Pony section... it was buy one get one half off so I bought the 4 polishes they released. I've used Illamasqua before but cant wait to try this white/Scorch. Vice is a wine vampy color, I love it. The MLP set has an iridescent white/shimmer, purple, bright blue, and bringt pink. The MLP set did not indicate names though. I want to swatch them all!!
