Beauty Monthly Manis

December Manis

December 28, 2016

Not too many manis this month, but it’s an exciting post nonetheless. I started the month out by cutting my hand and getting 3 stitches therefore there were no manis for a few weeks.

How did I do it? My fellow beauty lovers will love this–I love the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder, but I hate the sifter that comes in it. I thought I’d just cut it out. I managed to do it with no harm on the jar that I’m almost done with so I thought I’d go ahead and do the same to my backup jar. Wellllll the exacto knife I was using slipped and you know how the story plays out. I had never had stitches before (other than when I had  my wisdom teeth out) so I think making it to 25 scotch free is impressive.

It wasn’t funny at the time, but I can look back and laugh now. I mean who else? How else? As if that powder wasn’t expensive enough, a trip to urgent care and 3 stitches certainly upped the ante.

In other news, one of my fav YouTubers, KathleenLights, came out with her own nail polish line. Of course I pre-ordered as soon as I heard, but I had to wait for shipping. The torture! I bought 2 and you’ll see one of them below. These were the only 2 I really liked from the initial launch, but I really love the formula and I can’t wait to see what colors she adds next!


Essie Petal Pushers (the best blue/grey)


KL Polish Gumption (my new favorite navy)


Essie Rock the Runway (my favorite red)

    Awesome! I saw KL’s nail polishes too but I honestly would probably only buy the same shades you did lol.

      The rest of them were kinda odd (to me, at least). I think she said she would be doing a spring release so I hope there will be some better colors.

    That grey color is amazing. I realized that I might be a grey nail polish hoarder.
