Another Pink Wednesday

Hello, Fireflies!

I'm feeling secret-club-ish today, so I'm using our code name.  The polishes I have for you today aren't very secret, though some of the Indies may not be as well-known.

Lex Cosmetics Tuilleries.  I don't know how to pronounce it, either.  I looked it up, and apparently, if it's spelled with only one 'L' it's the name of a Royal Parisian Palace that was on the river Seine.  With the 2 Ls, it's apparently a common typo for the Palace - or something on page 2 of Google search, but who looks there?

I can't decide if I like it with the delicate, see-through pink base, or if it should have undies.  It's so pretty, like spun sugar.

Julep Helen and Barbara.  Ok, I think Helen is actually lavender, but I topped it with Barbara, a mix of pink glitters.

These are some older pix I took, and I almost didn't want to post them, but I think it's interesting to see how I've progressed with my nail care and photos.  Though I do sometimes regress.

Isn't Barbara pretty?  I love the flashes of the different bright pinks, and maybe even a purple in there?

Nail Sauce by Felifel Hot Heart.  This is a really glittery, scattered holo pink and red extravaganza!  It's a real attention-getter.  Application was great, no undies.  I didn't want to take it off.

I wish I could have done a better job capturing the bling.  It's quite pretty.

If you'd like more information, Lex Cosmetics can be found on Facebook and on the webNail Sauce also has a Facebook page and a shop.

So, what are you in the mood for today?  Delicate and sweet, a delicate base with bling, or all-out BLING? 


  1. Nail Sauce... OMG, I love it :)

    1. I was surprised.. and happy .. to see that she still sells it on her store envy shop!

  2. Even though it totally doesn't matter, you pronounce that word "twee-la-rees". Hey, my 4 years of high school French are actually helpful!

    1. I was totally butchering it. I actually do feel better knowing how to pronounce it correctly! I'm probably sensitive to having my own name mispronounced my whole life - I try to get others' names correct (even if it's just a nail polish! lol)


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
