Today I decided to choose a creme for once (gasp!). Even though my collection is dominated by shimmer,there are some creme shades that have caught my eye and this was one of them.Ok,I'll admit,the main draw was the name (Hoodoo Voodoo?!-how cool is that?) but I really like this dusty pink (that matches my living room ,coincidentally) even though it isn't "blingy".I used 3 coats here,but could've done with 2.
In other news,my choice to to live in rural bliss has bit me in my arse yet again.A few weeks ago I saw Quirious nailpolish on Mary's blog.When I clicked on the link,I was pleased to find out that they did indeed deliver to Canada .For some reason I thought that we were included in the 'does not ship overseas'.Then I remembered my geography and realized that Canada and the U.S. share a land border and we were exempt. Duh. So I ordered several colours and awaited their arrival.Yesterday,(after my haul was safely in my hands),I attempted to order more colours.Once I got to the address part I saw highlighted in yellow," Courier does not ship to this address".
Say Whaaa? I'm pretty sure the polish I received was indeed delivered to my door,then I remembered that they changed their shipping practices in starting August 1st.I guess the changes included not delivering to nail polish addicts who live in the sticks.Darn. So far at least 4 of the preferred beauty sites don't deliver (what would I do without Transdesign?),so I can't try brands like Color Club unless I shop Ebay (which can be expensive).I guess I'll have to have stuff sent to my friend Jackie's address(she lives in Boston), at least until etailers start sending things outside the U.S., (or metropolitan areas for that matter).That's what I get for liking trees.
Have a Good Weekend!
