This was a small haul of mostly the Amp'd Up Gloss.  Not one to pass up any eyeshadow, I did order a couple to satisfy my summer hunger for color.

First off, I have to thank ManGlaze for creating these Franken Juggs.  Without them I would have never even started to franken because I would make a complete mess with regular nail polish bottles.  The wide opening of the Franken Juggs just makes it easy to see the mixture of color which in turn makes it easy to tweak.

If you are wondering what goes through my mind when I franken a polish, then you are in luck.  You get a peek inside my brain of how the remaining cells function.

As you know I chose to keep this blog royal free when there was that big event over the Atlantic.  Actually, the wedding coincided with my Fringe watching day and I found my parallel universe more important.  I know some people were up to their ears from hearing about all the royalty stuff and it looks to me ManGlaze, who is one of my favorite nail polish brands to date, chose to capture this emotion in a nail polish-Royal Matterimoaning (13.13USD).

If you are a fan of the SyFy show Face Off, the competition/elimination series that highlights the talents of SFX makeup artists; then you are in luck if you are able to attend IMATS.

When I was a little girl, I always bought the big box of Crayola crayons with that nifty sharpener in the back.  Opening the box, I would stare incessantly at the rainbow of wax sticks and wondered why I couldn't put the colors on my face.  I just sighed and closed the lid.

It feels like I haven't been buying any makeup, but that is a total lie.  I have but I just don't remember what I have bought in this summer heat daze.  Luckily, I remembered to take pictures of what I bought or I would have drawn a complete blank.  (I can't wait for Fall and Winter when my brain starts working again.)

Sponges were just a simple round disc or a wedge.  Nothing complicated to mull over at the local drugstore, just buy a bag.  That's it.  Now, you have to think and ponder over which sponge; the wedge, the round, the egg, the deformed egg, the vibrating one.  What the hell?

I had the distinct pleasure of playing plumber this past weekend. Okay, it wasn't a pleasure nor would I have wanted to be one, but I wasn't willing to call a plumber to fix my pipes.  I was being totally stubborn.  What was suppose to be about a 1 hour ordeal spanned two f*cking days!

Okay, I know my blog won't be 2 years old until June 30th, but I forget these things (kinda like I forget my birthday until someone reminds me).  I know 2 is still a young blog and probably in blog years (number of years taken to the 2nd derivative then multiplied by the cosine and divided by π) it is considered to be in its teens.  If I took it by the Hollywood aging system it would still be an embryo!  Anyway, before I forget, I want to thank everyone for reading this blog.  I know it doesn't make a big impact in the world of blogging.  (My sarcasm makes more of an impact actually in real life.)

Applying these nail polishes brought me back to the big loose t-shirts, large shoulder pads, leggings, slouchy socks, crimped hair, high pony tail, and WHAM! singing Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go!  Yeah, the 80's.  Oh what fashionable mistakes were made back then!

As I listen to Kiss singing the ballad Beth on the radio, it takes me back to the time in  6th grade when practically every boy in class wanted to be like them. So, when Halloween came around, you could say it was just a convention of miniature Kiss(es); imagine 10 and 11 year olds dressed like Gene Simmons or Paul Stanley.  (You might be wondering what this has to do with Dan Read Cosmetics, I am getting to it, I just have to get this memory out of my mind.)
