My Intro into EvilShades...

First and foremost - I posted the winners of my Cleaning Out My Polish Giveaway last night. Check it out to see who the winners are.

When I came home from vacation, there was an awesome package waiting for me. I was really hoping that the mail Gods would shine on me and deliver my package before we left on vacation, but I placed the order just 3 days before going, so I knew it wouldn't happen. So the entire time I was on vacation, I knew the package had to be sitting on my counter waiting for me. So even though I was completely exhausted, I ripped open the package and proceeded to drool. Now which polish could it be you ask? Well - it wasn't polish at all actually!  EvilAngel from the Black Nail Polish & Lip Gloss blog also the creator and owner of Evil Shades Cosmetics. Since I love her blog and her nails, I had to place an order and test her out. I wore her blush in Pinup today and it stayed on like a champ! I also wore her lipstick in Devilista, but I spread it on with my finger to make it have a more stained effect. I have been looking for a lip stain that works for me forever and I accomplished it with this. I was so excited. After a long car trip and looking all dogged, this made me feel better. Unfortunately I don't have an pictures yet, but once I get some sleep and back on track I plan on doing a face of the day with her products. Another thing I love is that Evil Angel is a woman just like me trying to create an amazing future for herself and her loved ones. By the quality of the products I received it is obvious that she cares and is dedicated to her craft of making quality cosmetics. And as a blogger whom I love following, it just makes it that much more amazing watching her succeed. So when I found out she had her own line, I immediately made a purchase. I ordered the Large Gift Set which comes with your choice of 3 eye shadows, 2 wicked gloss' and 1 Deviant lipstick. I paid $16 for the gift set, but I noticed when I looked at her site last night she was having a sale and the large gift set was on sale for $14.50. I can't guarantee that they are still on sale, but even for $16 getting all those items is just friggin awesome! If you are a makeup fanatic, you have to try her out. OK so enough of me blabbing about my latest find. I will post pictures soon I promise. I know, I know, I should have held this post until I had pics. I suck! I know! But I just couldn't wait. If you have tried her stuff already, I would love to hear your thoughts and what you tried. Do you know of any other bloggers who have their own business? Are you one? If so leave me a comment. I love finding new stuff!

OK so, on to my NOTD. This is Sephora by OPI Ms. Can't Be Wrong. This polish is deceiving. At first glance it looks like a berry creme, but it has this small micro shimmer that flashes from pink to almost blue. I think this color is pretty dupable, but it still remains one of my favorites when I want something a bit more subtle. It actually is a color I tend to wear on my toes a lot though. I find it weird that I have different favorites for my toes than my hands, but that is just who I am I guess. This was perfect in two coats. I don't own a lot of Sephora by OPI polishes, but every time I take one out, I think I need to get more. If only there was a Sephora near me!

  3. I have the same frame of thought....there are some colors I wear on my toes that I don't like on my hands and vice versa.

    This is sooo pretty! Definitely on my lemming list.

  4. @Elizabeth That is so funny! We are totally in sync on the makeup thing. & if I remember correctly we have been in sync with our polishes on more than one occasion! So cool!

    @Zara you need to try it. The blush lasted all day. I am seriously impressed!

    @BBB Glad to see it isn't just me! I just put another berry color on my toes tonight. I can be so predictable sometimes!
