Eat. Sleep. Polish. – Letters From a Porcupine Collection – Change

Continuing (slowly) with the Letters From a Porcupine collection from Eat. Sleep. Polish., up next is a shimmery, holo blue called Change. It’s easy to be in love with this gorgeous polish. It’s a one-coater. One-coat. When does that happen? Not only that, but my boyfriend noticed it while I was painting my nails and said “I like that. I don’t know what it is, but that’s a great blue. Keep it on a long time… ’til next year!”

Marc Jacobs Beauty – Highliner Gel Eye Crayon – Intro(vert)

Earlier this year, Sephora had a mini Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon (phew) in (Brown)Out as a 100 point perk. Of course, I quickly snatched it up in order to try out the high end brand without the high end price tag. I have enjoyed the mini pencil, so when I stumbled across Intro(vert) tonight at Marshall’s, I quickly consulted with a friend about the colour and happily skipped out of the store with my purchase.


Okay, I didn’t actually skip out, but I was pleased with myself.

Enchanted Polish – Autumn & Eat Sleep Polish – Salad Fingers

Enchanted Polish originally released Autumn in a limited (ha, what Enchanted restock isn’t limited?!) restock, which I sadly missed. Luckily for me, it was rereleased this Autumn, and this time around I was prepared. Once it finally showed up, I was in love. Autumn spends most of it’s life shifting between a bronzey-golden holo polish, but every now and then a pinky-purple side shows up, and she’s just gorgeous! To add a little more festive feel to my Autumn mani, I grabbed a new (also Limited Edition) polish from Eat. Sleep. Polish., a gorgeous glitter topcoat called Salad Fingers. Cat describes it as “copper, sandy, caramel, matte peach, fuchsia, red and cranberry glitters of all shapes and sizes!”

Eat Sleep Polish – Letters to a Porcupine Collection – Toes Across the Floor and Mouthful of Cavities

Last week, I showed off one of the new releases from Eat. Sleep. Polish.‘s Letters to a Porcupine collection… check out Soul One here. Today, I have Toes Across the Floor with an accent of Mouthful of Cavities. Both are tricky little polishes, that act shy in front of the camera! It was a bit difficult to capture their true complexity.

Enchanted Polish – Water for Unicorns and Hot Chocolate for Unicorns

I count myself lucky that I am one of the Enchanted Polish hoarders with a Water for Unicorns in my collection… although I admit, it took me quite some time to warm up to this shade! I kept it around for fear that if I did swap it, I would regret it and not be able to acquire it again! Well, I’m glad I kept it because Enchanted Polish recently released a sister to this beauty, called Hot Chocolate for Unicorns. Both unicorn polishes are creamy and opaque with a beautiful splash of holo  throughout.

Eat. Sleep. Polish. – Soul One

After she took a bit of a (well-deserved) holiday in the summer, I was overly excited when Cat from Eat. Sleep. Polish. came back in early September with a new collection called Letters From a Porcupine. I admit, I had to look up the reference (it’s a tribute to the band Blind Melon) but I was smitten with the polishes either way! I ordered them immediately, and was thrilled when they showed up. Soul One is a creamy soft grey holo.

Julep Maven Meetup and Holiday Sneak Peeks!

Lucky me, tonight Jane Park and her Julep Maven team hosted a meetup in Toronto, which I decided to attend alongside a handful of lovely ladies I happen to know and adore. Upon arriving we were greeted by Jane herself, along with her bubbly assistant Melissa. After pouring us a glass of wine, Jane showed us the newest Julep products and told us to have fun testing and swatching them all! Of course, through our fun (and wine) I took some photos to share with all of you! Please excuse the quality… poorly lit hotel bars and cell phones don’t play nice when trying for amazing photos!

Let’s get it kicked off with October’s polishes…
