Zodiac Matrix


Urban Decay “Zodiac” reminds me of The Matrix – the duochrome glitter gives the illusion of type sliding down a computer screen.

Two, maybe three coats are necessary for full coverage. I was able to get away with two, but I did get a few bald spots when I put on my top coat. I used Orly Bonder for the base coat and Sally Hansen Diamond Flash for the top coat. I kinda want to try it matte now.

That bottle though…I am in LOVE with the Urban Decay polish bottles. I though the skull was special for Mrs. Mia Wallace, but they ALL have it!

“Zodiac” was a limited edition release for the 2013 Holiday season. It was released with a plum/gold duochrome called “Blackheart”. Now I need to go back to the bin at Nordstrom Rack and dig for it!




All By Myself…


I found myself shopping alone yesterday – Lily had a hot date with her BFF, which left me with an afternoon of opportunity.

After the not fun stuff like getting gas and picking up a prescription from Satan’s bunghole CVS, I hit up Nordstrom Rack. I was looking for some Too Faced palettes I saw people finding online, but nada. I did find Urban Decay polishes for $4.97, so I got “Zodiac” and “Addiction”. I also got a long sleeved yoga shirt with a hood, because I wanna look like I work out even though I never actually work out. Did you know that Nordstrom Rack offers a debit card like the Target Red Card now? It’s NOT a credit card, just linked to your bank account and you earn points – YES, please.

Next, I visited Marshall’s, still searching for more Kat Von D. All I found was an empty box for the eyeliner set I already have – someone had stolen all of the eyeliners. Rude. Since Lily wasn’t with me, I had the luxury of trying on clothes. The clearance at this location was REALLY good. I found a grandma sweater and two pairs of Michael Kors pants – terry cloth lounge pants for $20 and dress slacks for $25…in my size and long enough. $200 worth of pants for $45!

…One thing – it’s not even Thanksgiving yet and shopping is already retarded busy. People were about to shank each other for parking spaces, driving all crazy – I almost hit a rent-a-cop wandering around the parking lot. Be safe out there – people are dumbasses.


Lunchtime Shopping FTW


Some days, you just have to get out of the office and buy something.

Since I realized that there is a Nordstrom Rack close to my office, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I wanted to check out their jeans section, because I had paid full price for the last 2 pairs of jeans that I bought and I figured there have to be deals out there somewhere. I lucked out and found a pair of Lucky Brand Capris for 65% off. After the dressing room, I headed towards the beauty section…

I shouldn’t have done that. They had piles of Smashbox, stila, LORAC and NARS. It was mostly out of season palettes and discontinued colors, but the prices were good. I dug around a little, but nothing really caught my eye. I was rooting around in a display and came across a single 2-pack of Butter London nail polish – Double Take with “Rebel Fox” and “Brass Monkey”. I’ve heard great things about the brand, but was scared away by the price – $15 each. The 2-pack was $12, so I figured I’d give it a shot. I was even happier when I checked out and it rang up for $9. FOR THE WIN!
