Trying Beyond The Nail Ahead of Etsy Made In Canada Mississauga 2017

Beyond The Nail Unicorn Nails - supplies

I was lucky enough to get to try some of the Beyond The Nail polishes that will be available at the Mississauga Etsy Made In Canada show this weekend.  I find handmade polishes at craft shows can be a little hit and miss.  Some are outstanding, usually the ones that come from straight polish / nail art sellers like Beyond The Nail.  While others see polish flying off the tables and think I can do that and you get boring[Read more]

Tickled Tea Rum and Cola Tea Review

Tickled Tea Rum and Cola Tea Review

A non alcoholic Rum and Cola tea to warm you up on cooler fall nights, if they ever arrive!  Tickled Tea is a Canadian tea company based out of Alberta and you know I love to give the smaller indie companies some love.  So despite the cinnamon listed in this, I gave it a try expecting a more Rum and Cola taste.  It promises “Everybody’s favourite cocktail is now everyone’s favourite tea!

Color Club Enlightened Mood Polish Swatches & Nail Art

Color Club Enlightened Mood Polish Swatches - Transition State with Bottle

I wore Color Club Enlightened Mood Polish to the office and since I rarely wear pink, everyone noticed.  My coworker spent the day singing I’m A Barbie Girl to me.  Which sums up this polish, very Barbie girly pink.  Color Club goes from a lighter pink, a touch darker than baby pink when warm to a deeper Barbie pink when cool.  The transition temperature on this one is decent and I could see some of the darker pink naturally without[Read more]
