A Girl Obsessed: Mountain Dew - Indie Goodness!

It is no surprise that I love everything that my friend Samantha of A Girl Obsessed makes, but this polish, Mt. Dew, holds a special place in both of our hearts.

Mt. Dew was made in honor of our friend Brandon, who passed away in 2005.  He was my best friend in the whole world and I still miss him daily.  He was obsessed with Mt. Dew, I would guess he drank at least a 2 liters worth daily, LOL.  He was handsome, hysterical, sarcastic, and a loyal friend.  Whenever I go home to visit, I take a bottle of Mt. Dew and go to the cemetery to say hello to him...there are usually a few other bottles there already, haha.

Anyway, this polish is instantly one of my favorites.  It makes me think of Brandon AND, of course, the formula is flawless.

On the site, Mt. Dew is described as:

"Mt. Dew is a glitter polish full of neon green/yellow and red hexes with some white bar glitter too. I made this in memory of a friend. This polish is versatile. It isn't meant for Christmas but I could certainly see it worn then."

Here is 3 coats of Mt. Dew by itself:

And here is 2 coats of Mt. Dew over Wet&Wild's Saved By The Bell Collection in Nerd Alert Screech:

And lastly, here is a pic of Brandon and I.  This was my 21st birthday, a year and 3 days before he was killed in 2005.  Miss you, B!!

Zoya Sophisticates

The Zoya Sophisticates collection is here! There are two "pearl" shades, two "metallic" shades, and 8 creme shades. Let me show you each one! I am going to lift the description from the site, LOL. #lazyblogger

But first, group shot:


Zoya McKenna: "refined pearl in a soft almond" is the description of this polish. It does have a "pearl" like finish to it, but it is very subtle. Watch those brush strokes though, they can show if you're not careful.


Zoya Tabitha: this is the other "pearl" polish but in a hunter green. I actually liked this shade more than I thought I would! The pearl finish makes it quite unique...but, oh boy, those brush strokes! Two coats shown here.


Zoya Gal: No doubt, this baby is named after Gal Gadot, aka Wonderwoman! I wish they had given her a more powerful color, because this one is lame-o. Zoya describes this as a "smokey, iridescent, peridot gold metallic." Ugly, LOL. My camera didn't like it and…

Lip Slut: F*ck Trump Liquid Lipstick!

Perhaps I will lose a few followers for this, but I am over it. Trump is an awful President. He does not care to unite the country, and, quite the opposite, seeks to divide people from their neighbors and loved ones.

In response to his ridiculous response to the Aug 11-12 events in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lip Slut decided to send some of the proceeds from their now infamous F*ck Trump lipstick to those who suffered.

Honestly, this product has been for sales since November 2016. I didn't buy it then because I hoped (and prayed and hoped and prayed) that, if he were elected, Trump would be great...

So, lemme show ya my new lippie, k?



I wasn't expecting the formula to be great...BUT IT IS!



The color is quite universally flattering, I would think. The formula feels like a Colour Pop matte to me, and the staying powder is great. Win, win!

PS: Fuck Trump!
