Sock Monkey by A Girl Obsessed: Perfect Rendition!!!

When you reminisce about your childhood, you might think about the lovely, gangly, cuddly, knitted, stuffed toys known as sock monkeys.

You think of the grey and white combo knitted "fur" and the black button eyes.  Usually, there were red insides to the ears or a red hat and always a big red smile.

In fact, it looked a little like this!!!!!


Samantha from A Girl Obsessed has outdone herself with this polish! It is perfectly sock monkey-like!

 The swatches show a clear basecoat with three coats of Sock Monkey, no top coat. The black dots lay flat and the white is opaque in three coats.

 It's beautiful and funky at the same time!



The little odd spots you see on the big black dots are my fault, not the polish. I didn't cover them completely with the topcoat, not sure why.


This is such a sweet polish. If you love it as much as I do, head over to Samantha's A Girl Obsessed Facebook page and tell her so!!

Also check out her etsy store and if something catches your eye, use MBHM20 for an amazing 20% off your purchase!

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!
