China Glaze Trolls World Tour Collection 6 Piece Mini Kit Swatches + Review


2020 has been the year of very few new nail polish collections; so when I spotted this sassy six pack from China Glaze, I couldn't resist! The Trolls World Tour Collection 6 Piece Mini Kit
is one you'll love and hate. Some of the colors are spectacular, others are ho hum; but the unique vibes are abound, which makes it one to pick up - even if just for a few shades. Ready to peep the colors?
 
Pink-In-Poppy is a Pink Iridescent Glitter. OMG babes, I'm crying over how pretty this pink is! Pink-In-Poppy is packed with hot pink and lavender microglitter that creates a subtle blue shift in sunlight. Prior to adding topcoat this one has a gritty, Liquid Sand-inspired feel {y'all remember Liquid Sand, right?!}; but once top coat is applied {as it has been here}, you are left with smooth, glossy goodness! This one will be in my collection for a v, v long time. Loves it! This is 2 coats.

No-Holds Barb is a Red Jelly. This shade is on fire! Babes, I don't usually clamor over crimson, but I could not pass up this pretty for the summer season No-Holds Barb is a glooorious coral-meets-red hue that is desperate to deck your tips and toes for summertime! While this is a jelly, making it perfect for those sparkly jelly sandwiches, it can easily be donned alone, as you see here, as long as you apply an extra coat to prevent VNL. As a jelly, it is thinner and stickier than your standard creme; however, it doesn't cruise for the cuticles, applying beautifully with minimal effort. This is 3 coats.

It's All Techno is a Chartreuse Creme. Hmmm...this color is a bit of a conundrum. Part of me likes it due to its lemming quality; while the other part feels ho hum for the very same reason. It's All Techno is a Shrek of a color - bridging the gap between yellow and green to bring you a chartreuse that feels fitting for Halloween given its sliiight brown undertone. Despite the depth of the color, the formula is pretty thin, so you do need to swipe 3 times for full coverage. Would I recommend? Tbh, I'm on the fence - if the color tickles your fancy though, go for it! This is 3 coats.

Funky Beat is a Purple Creme. Purple will forever be a hit or miss with me; but this beauty was 100% a hit! Funky Beat is a g-l-a-m-o-r-o-u-s shade that transitions perfectly from the height of summer to the start of fall. The shade bridges the gap between bright and muted, and is such a pleaser for those who love girly with an edge. Formula here was perfection! It self-leveled without issue, and was perfectly opaque in just two simple swipes. Highly recommend! This is 2 coats.

Delta Darlin' is a Pastel Orange Creme. Soooo... I seriously wish that this shade would have photographed better because it. is. smokin'. Delta Darlin' is a dreamy orange creamsicle-esque shade that feels fit for spring through summer {but would also work as a winter pastel}. The formula here is a little bit thicker to work with; however, upon application, it's a bit thin. Meaning? Either apply 3 thin coats, or 2 thick coats for full coverage. This one is a total keeper! This is 3 coats.
Chill in Symphonyville is a Light Blue Shimmer Matte. Prefacing this with the warning that this is probably my most disliked nail polish of. all. time. #sorrynotsorry Y’all know how much I l-o-v-e a good baby blue; but Chill in Symphonyville is just straight. up. weird. First, yes, it’s a matte {but I used top coat here to add shine because matte did not look good}; second, the formula recedes from the nail tip within minutes of application; third…it’s just not pretty. Formula was odd, color was strange…pass this one ladies. This is 3 coats.

BOOK REVIEW: Prodigy by Marie Lu


Give me a moment to digest what I just read because after turning the final page of Marie Lu’s Prodigy, all I can say is mind. blown.

❝He is beauty inside and out.
He is the silver lining in a world of darkness.
He is my light.❞

We meet up with Day and June nine days after escaping from the Republic. John, Day’s older brother, has been executed in his place. Eden, Day’s plague-ridden younger brother, is missing. Los Angeles is on lockdown; Day is severely injured; and the two lovebirds are seeking asylum and assistance from the Patriots in Las Vegas. But there’s one thing I failed to mention: the Elector Primo is dead, leaving his early-twenty-something son Anden with the title.

New to the Elector Primo throne {figurative}, but familiar with the political scene, Anden is heavily disliked by the Senate due to his desire to do away with the Republic’s archaic systems, including the rigged tests that determine each person’s future. While his stance will likely please the oppressed people of the Republic, it may never come to fruition. At least, it won’t if the Patriots have anything to say about it.

Overseen by Razor {aka Commander Andrew DeSoto}, the Patriots are working from the inside of the Republic; but they’re more than happy to help Day and June…for a very high price. The Patriots {with Kaede and Tess in tow} are willing to make Day as good as new as long as he and June assist in assassinating Anden. By placing June in Anden’s hands {and a gun in Day’s}, Razor is convinced that he can eliminate the Elector Primo and overthrow the Republic for good. The question is: who are the bad guys and who are the good?

NGL here…this one started out very slow for me {we’re talking almost-abandoned-it-for-something-else slow}, and I didn’t feel the same love for some of the characters I adored the first time around; but overall it was a solid sequel.

My main qualm with Prodigy was the love square. Yeah, you read that right; Prodigy goes beyond the typical love triangle {which I am not a fan of}, and introduces an angst-filled love square involving Day, June, Anden, and Tess {how Tess went from endearing little sister to potential love interest within the course of a few weeks - book time - is completely beyond my comprehension, but whatevs}. I found the whole situation awkward, fumbling, and unenjoyable. In other words…it was cringey. In fact, that term could also be used for much of Day and June’s interactions.

The two narrators, whom I adored in book one, really lost a lot of their spark this go round. Speaking of spark…it was lacking in Tess as well. Tess, Tess, Tess. I loved her in Legend and legit loathed her in Prodigy. Nevertheless, I found other characters to fill the void: shockingly, Kaede won a huge place in my heart; as did Anden. And while Day and June did little for me for a good 75% of the book; they lit up the pages for those last few chapters, and left me eager to see how their story will end in Champion.

BOOK REVIEW: Left Fur Dead by J.M. Griffin


Gimme allllll the telepathic bunny books, ya hear?

Twenty-five-year-old Juliette ‘Jules’ Bridge is the proprietor of New Hampshire-based Fur Bridge Farm, an ultra-charming sanctuary-style rescue that rehabilitates bunnies; while providing community education on the proper care and keeping of rabbits. Oh, and did I mention Fur Bridge Farm also houses a beyond quaint gift shop brimming with bunny-raising supplies, along with the softest yarn on. the. planet. Yeah, kinda wanna go there pronto!

While Jules adores all of the bunnies who come into her care, she has a soft spot for Bun. Rescued from a physically and mentally abusive environment {his former owners were legit convinced that sweet Bun was in league with Satan}, the two share a bond like no other. No, really. You see, Bun communicates with Jules telepathically. Go ahead, read that again. Telepathic communication with. a. rabbit. Bun speaks to Jules in her mind, and Jules responds verbally {when no one’s around that is; wouldn’t want to be dubbed the crazy lady}. It’s a little secret the two share that not even Jess Plain {Jules’ friend, employee, fellow rabbit lover, and veterinarian-to-be} is aware of.

So how does this duo find themselves immersed in mischief and mayhem? Well…during one of their early morning outings in a nearby park, Jules and Bun happen upon the dead body of Arthur Freeman – aka Arty the Mime. Known for his stupendous performances around the local birthday party circuit {oftentimes alongside Jules and her bunnies}, Arty is somewhat of a local celebrity. And once Jules learns that he kicked the bucket not due to natural causes, but murder, she and Bun decide to put on their detective hats and crack the crime – much to the chagrin of Sheriff Jack Carver. The question is…will Jules and Bun solve the case, or be next in line for an untimely demise?

Oh. My Gosh. I loved this book! NGL, it took me 60 pages or so to really get into Left Fur Dead, but once I did I was hooked!! Bun is the cutest character ever. He actually reminded me of a British butler for some reason {kinda getting Alfred from Batman vibes}. And Jules and Jess are gems – I would love to hang out with these girls IRL. Though he was aloof, I found something endearing about the character of Andrew Stone, and I truly hope that he returns in the sequel {perhaps as a love interest?}.

Truth be told, I was able to pinpoint the killer the moment they appeared on the pages {intuition}; but that didn’t stop me from loving the story. Part of the appeal of cozy mysteries is an assemblage of lovable characters, and an endearing setting – both of which J.M. Griffin created fabulously here. I truly cannot wait to get my paws on book two, Who’s Dead, Doc?

OPI Mexico City Mini 4 Pack Swatches + Review

There's something about Mexico City...babes, I never thought I could love a nail polish collection as much as I do this one; but OMG, OPI has blown me away with the Mexico City Mini 4 Pack. These colors are so pretty, so unique, and so necessary for summer 2020, I cannot even tell you - so I'll show you instead!

Mexico City Move-mint is a Fresh Mint Creme. Le sigh...ladies, I haven't been this head over heels for a mint polish since the iconic Essie Mint Candy Apple hit shelves; but OMG it's that good. Mexico City Move-mint is a shade for all seasons. The fresh mint hue would seamlessly transition from spring to summer and fall to winter, which is why it's going to be in constant rotation in my collection. Formula here is v thin; but builds beautifully to create a rich, decadent color that makes me think of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Highly recommend this beauty - and buy backups! This is 3 coats.


Mural Mural On the Wall is a Coral Crelly with Gold Glitter Shards. Babes, I am speechless over this stunner! Mural Mural On the Wall is a glorious coral crelly with gold glitter shards that are magical. At first sight, I thought this one would be orange; but the gold glitter shards really brighten up the color as a whole, and tone it down to a peachy/coral that is decadent for spring! Formula is super simple to work with. It does require a little extra dry time because of its crelly makeup; but it self-levels perfectly, and looks amaze in the sunlight! This is 3 coats.


Suzi's Slinging Mezcal is an Rich Metallic Gold Shimmer. OMG ladies this gold is glorious! Suzi's Slinging Mezcal is a super, super, super saturated gold metallic shimmer that is simply stunning. Not gonna lie, golds rarely do it for me; but this one is beyond fab! Formula was incredible - no streaking, builds fast, and lasts. for. days. For summertime I prefer more bronze metallics; but I will definitely be brining this bad boy out for holiday soiree season! This is 3 coats.


Telenovela Me About It is a Pink Creme. Ooh all you pink ladies out there must be swooning over this beauty because I know I am! Telenovela Me About It {that name tho!} is a glam hot pink that has allll the drama of a true telenovela due to that hidden blue shimmer that peeks out occasionally when you wiggle your tips. Formula here was bomb. I found it to be sliiightly on the thin side {hence the three coats}; but it's such a dream to apply {not to mention fast-dry} that it's truly no big. Highly recommend! This is 3 coats.

BOOK REVIEW: The Magician's Nephew by C.S. Lewis


Years ago I remember reading C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, followed by a few other tales of Narnia, but I’ve forgotten the titles since then, and overall have v little recollection of the series as a whole; thus, I decided to explore the Chronicles again.

Though published as book six in the series, The Magician’s Nephew is to be read first, as a prequel of sorts, to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

The Magician’s Nephew introduces us to Digory Kirke and Polly Plummer, two neighbors who become fast friends, and spend their summer days seeking adventure – which is how they come to find Uncle Andrew’s study. Uncle Andrew is Digory’s supposedly mad uncle who is convinced he’s a magician. But Digory and Polly soon learn that Uncle Andrew may actually be a magician.

While in Uncle Andrew’s study, the mad magician manages to trick Polly into touching a magical yellow ring that results in the young girl vanishing. With Polly gone, Uncle Andrew blackmails {I know, right?!} Digory into testing another magic ring in order to be reunited with Polly. In addition to the yellow ring, Uncle Andrew provides Digory with two green rings {green for returning home}; just in case the two children are able to jump back into their current world. It’s getting freaky now, mmm’kay?

Once Digory touches his yellow ring, he finds himself with Polly again – resting within a wooded area that connects the two worlds. And surrounding them? Pools - many, many pools. Each pool leading to a different universe.

Obvs, given the current circumstance, Digory and Polly elect to explore the different worlds before returning to England; which is how they uncover…Charn. Abandoned and desolate, the children shortly discover what they presume to be an ancient palace filled with statues of Charn’s former kings and queens. And smack dab in the middle of those breathtaking statues? A bell, a hammer, and the following words:

”Make your choice, adventurous Stranger
Strike the bell and bide the danger
Or wonder, till it drives you mad
What would have followed if you had.”

And thus, the story of Narnia officially begins; for once Digory and Polly take it upon themselves to ring that enticing bell many things are set in motion. From the creation of Narnia and the animals who reside within, to the origins of the lamppost {so prevalent in the pages of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe} and the presence of the {evil} White Witch. But, above all, we are introduced to Aslan - the overseer and creator of all things Narnian; and learn much about the spectacular Wardrobe, and its ability to transport the chosen to Narnia.

The Magician’s Nephew was entertaining, no doubt about it. In under 150 pages it packed a whole lot of action and magic, and did a brilliant job of setting the stage for future adventures in Narnia. The characters are engaging and likable from the jump; while the world-building is perfection. I will certainly be back for more!

BOOK REVIEW: Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones


When it comes to Diana Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle, I am in the minority for two very big reasons: 1} I wasn’t led to the tale after viewing Studio Ghibli’s Howl’s Moving Castle anime film {still haven’t seen it, in fact}; and 2} I can honestly say that, as much as I tried, I just didn’t enjoy this book. Don’t get me wrong, I truly felt that this tale started out strong, but it failed to engage me after the first thirty or so pages.

Sophie, the main character, is a timid girl who has lost all hope, and convinces herself that she is content watching those around her move forward in life, as she toils away as a hatter {as someone else claims success for her work}. When Sophie draws the attention of the {wicked} Witch of the Waste, she is transformed into a cantankerous old woman, and knows there is only one place to seek solace – and perhaps a cure for the spell: Wizard Howl’s elusive Moving Castle.

Which brings us to Howl himself. Howl is a…quirky fellow, to say the least. He’s showy in style and short in language. Though I tried to find a redeeming quality about him, I came up empty-handed every. single. time. Yes, I liked that he accepted Sophie into his home as a housekeeper {despite her frequent mishaps involving his assorted powders}; and I appreciated his overall kindness to his apprentice Michael. But barring those two things, he was fairly forgettable.

Though some may enjoy the banter that takes place between Howl and Sophie, perhaps even find it humorous, I found it obnoxious and hard to take after a time. So much so that the only character I found even remotely interesting was Calcifer, the fire demon. Had the book been shorter, I may have rated it higher; but when you have a 400+ page novel wherein many occurrences keep repeating themselves, the storyline becomes tired and lackluster. Points for originality most certainly go to Wynne Jones; but this one served as being far from magical for me. Womp womp.

Charged Up Cherry is a lush, tropical pink creme that feels fresh for summer! The formula here was a dream; however, it was a little thinner than I expected - not enough to require more coats; but something to keep in mind during application. This one would be adorbs as a pedi shade!

BOOK REVIEW: A Good Girl's Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson


Let me preface this review with a slow clap because Holly Jackson has crafted a work of art with A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder. This teen tome right here will take you on a topsy-turvy roller coaster ride that will leave. you. breathless.

Pippa. Oh PippaI love her. Seventeen-year-old Pippa Fitz-Amobi {Pip to her pals} is a heroine for the ages; a modern-day Nancy Drew with a healthy sprinkling of Veronica Mars and the brains of one Miss Hermione Granger. When Pippa elects to investigate the murder of a years-old homicide/suicide/missing persons’ case involving former classmates Andie Bell {body never recovered} and Sal Singh for her senior Capstone Project, she has no clue where it will take her. The one thing she does know, or feel, is that Sal Singh is innocent. But try telling that to the rest of the town.

”When you ask people in town what happened to Andie Bell, they’ll tell you without hesitation: ‘She was murdered by Salil Singh.’ No allegedly, no might have, no probably...He did it, they say. Sal Singh Killed Andie.”

The case may be closed, but Pippa is determined to uncover the truth, while earning herself an A+. To do so, she enlists the assistance of an unlikely ally to find justice: Ravi Singh. Yes, the 20-year-old brother of the accused who has been ostracized by the community since Andie’s disappearance. Did I mention that he and Pippa have an irresistible, albeit innocent, chemistry that sparks off the pages? Don’t worry…it never overshadows the whodunit? at hand; but it does serve as a sweet, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it development.

Told in a mix of first and third-person narrative, along with…drumroll please!production logs, interview transcripts, diary entries, and a murder map {Yaaasss! go. off. sis! Detailed documentation and research is. my. weakness. and A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder is packed with it} this is one juicy work of fiction that will delight suspense readers of all ages.

NGL there are moments when Pippa’s investigation does reach unbelievable territory {meaning why would anyone comply with her line of questioning?!}. And Pippa herself can be sliiiightly invasive/overwhelming at times {not to mention ultra-hardcore when it comes to hitting the books - not that that’s a bad thing}; but all of the amazingness outweighs any faults presented, and makes me ridiculously excited for book two! Bring it on Ms. Jackson; bring. it. on.

BOOK REVIEW: LEGEND by Marie Lu


“Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything’s possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time. You try to walk in the light.” – Day

There is only one word to describe this book: unputdownable. I’m sorry, is that even a word? We can pretend, m’kay?

Y’all, I haven’t read a dystopian in a few years now; but I used to devour them like Doritos. The Hunger Games, Divergent, Matched, The Selection…you name it, I read it. Then there was my dystopian dry spell; and then…there was LEGEND.

I. absolutely. love. this. book. As Marie Lu’s debut, LEGEND is in a class of its own, telling the story of a world set 100 years in the future, where the United States is now divided into two separate peoples: the Colonies and the Republic. As you may have guessed, the Republic (armed with biological warfare, arrogance, and corruption) calls the shots; and the Colonies are riddled with various strains of a plague resulting in a rapidly diminishing population, and an angrier-than-thou lower-class fighting for survival.

Within the pages of LEGEND we meet two characters: Day (aka Daniel Altan Wing), and June Iparis, who share their POV in alternate chapters. The former, a criminal on the run with a home-base in the Colonies; the latter, a recent graduate from the Republic academy with a mission to capture the elusive Day, and a desire to prove herself to her heartless Commander.

Aside from Rachel Cohn and David Levithan’s Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares, I don’t think I have ever enjoyed two different POV’s as much as I adored Day and June’s. These are two characters whom. you. love. And they’re surrounded by other characters whom you kinda can’t get enough of. Tess {btw... if anything happens to Tess, I will never forgive Lu}, John…heck, even Kaede. While I never felt connected to characters such as Tris in Divergent or Peeta of The Hunger Games, Lu’s characters are people whom I was emotionally vested in, and that makes this debut all the more amazing.

Book 2 is in my shopping cart as. we. speak.

Bedazzle Me is a glamorous hue that can be layered over a bold shade as a top coat, or worn on its own {as I have here}. The formula is v simple to work with, and builds fast. My only qualm: I don't love the hexagonal glitter. I definitely would have preferred the microglitter on its own; but I'm still a fan. Necessary if you dig sparkle.
