Shiro Cosmetics Sale!

Shiro Cosmetics is having their anniversary sale!  THEFOURTH gets you 15% off through Friday.  Their intertubes are being discontinued and are only $5 each!  Now is the perfect time to stock up!
Here are the intertubes I own, and I may have just broke my no-buy to purchase a few more.  Who can resist a great sale?!  Still continuing on a low-buy until June 1!

Nail Mail

I am in a few makeup and nail polish groups on Facebook, and find that it is a great way to learn about new brands, and try new things.  One of the girls was destashing some nail polishes, and I broke my no-buy to pick some up!  I can safely say I am still on a low-buy, but sometimes sales come along that are just too hard to pass up!  Here are my new polishes:

My Pretty Zombie Cosmetics

My Pretty Zombie Cosmetics is a company that has been around for a while, and offers a gorgeous array of eyeshadows.  I was tempted to buy when I saw they were donating all proceeds from the sale of one of their colors to a Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary.  I purchased the charity color, Ojo De Gato, and also picked up Law Firm Lamb Cake, and received three samples with my order.

All swatches are over DeLeon Primer.

Ojo De Gato.  I included the blurry photo to show the sparkle!

Law Firm Lamb Cake, a pretty highlight color that is the shade of my skin

And now for the samples.  I received two eyeshadow samples and a blush sample.

MDMA Blush
I applied this heavily at the top, and blended it down.  It is a really pretty color, and I actually own this in a full-size.

Ojo De Gato is only available until May 1, go pick it up to support the Blind Cat Rescue and Sanctuary!

Nail Polish Organization

I am in the midst of Spring Cleaning, and decided it was time to organize my nail polishes.  In order to do that, I wanted to catalogue all of my current polishes.  I downloaded ‘Nail Polishes’, an app you can find in the google play store.  Here is my current collection:

Now I need to figure out the best way to store them!  I would really like a wall storage option because I would like to be able to see everything at once, but I am not sure I am up for making something.  Once I find the best solution, I will share!

How do you organize your nail polishes?
