First, I want to tip my hat to Jacie. She runs THREE blogs! You've Got Nail, You've Got Face, and the new Stuff My Kids Drew. It is from her that I learned the word 'awesomesauce.' Not only do I think it is a cool word, but it describes Jacie perfectly.
What Jacie doesn't know is that I have picked her as one of my idols in blog world. Her blogs are crisp, clean and inspiring. Her photography and skills are THE best!! Her wit is hilarious and she also talks about some sort of BBQ sauce too. But, you'll have to check out her nail blog for more on that.
So, what is awesomesauce? Well, awesome is for something that invokes awe. I got my first, huge taste of this viewing the Grand Canyon for the first time. The photos don't even come close to the beauty and AWE of this place.
Awesomesauce!!!! I made some. Revlon has set the nail blogs afire with their release of 'Perplex.' They just about name the company they are mimicking this color after. Even daring you to compare the colors. And 'Perplex' is just what the name implies...
Beautiful, isn't it? I could hardly wait to find this polish. I finally found it after a tip from
Kari of Once Bitten Blog. She saw them at a local Ulta store. I was there the next day! There was one empty slot where Kari napped hers. I walked away leaving 5 more empty slots.
I was going to apply 'Perplex' on my toes, because I knew I'd want to wear it for more than just a couple of days. So I took in Wet 'N Wild's 'Dasher', from their Holiday collection, for my fingernails. But, once my manicurist put one coat of 'Dasher' on, I realized that it was really a top coat. Quick thinking (remember, I had that thump on my noggin), I asked to have 'Perplex' on my fingernails too, with 'Dasher' on top. A 'current' and a 'holiday' look. Worlds of Nails Collide!!!!
I'm still going to wear this mani for more than just a couple of days. I'm in love....sigh.
Ooohh....what if I matted it????? Part 2??????
Are you in love with Perplex? If you bought it and, not its more expensive twin, are you happy with that choice? I am. And even if I should get in the same security check line as the piercing clown...well, I have this beautiful color combo to keep me in awesomesauce while I wait.
