Inspired by a Book Mani - Closed for the Season by Mary Downing Hahn

Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom's Inspired by a Book Manis

Thursdays used to be Fail Art Thursday, but hopefully I'll have less "fail" here! I'm going to do this series (for as long as I can), with nail art inspired by books! The covers of books specifically. If you have suggestions of books for me to check out, please let me know! Even tho I'm a big reader, there are still books I've never heard of... and even after doing this series for a few years, I can still use suggestions.

Too Faced Natural Matte palette

Hello all! I'm really working hard to get back into the swing of things with blogging (I even have an Inspired by a Book mani in the works for Thursday!) Today's post is a beautiful palette from Too Faced - the Natural Matte palette! I purchased this a while back, and found quickly that I am so not skilled in makeup application haha!

Oh it's a holiday week, and I'm posting twice! Today is really just to show this pretty - Indigo Bananas Olive Time & Space. I purchased this a while back, and I've worn it several times, so I figured it was high time to get it on the blog!

China Glaze Seas and Greetings collection


Ok lovely readers - here's my attempt to get back into the blogging game! I've been gone a while, and I think I just needed a break. But I just have to share this new China Glaze collection with you! This is the Seas and Greetings collection - a not-so-traditional set of polishes, inspired by a cozy seaside holiday! What a refreshing take on a winter holiday collection!

Wonder Woman goodies from Markwins


In case you weren't aware, I'm a huge fan of superheroes. All of them, really. While most people hate DC and think Marvel is the end all, be all, I can honestly say I prefer DC haha I always have to be different, right? So when I found out Markwins (the parent company of Wet n Wild, among others) had a Wonder Woman set, I was all over it! However, my market (and by market, I'm talking my own makeup collection) is so saturated that I figured I'd better not go crazy and buy the whole set - so I got the eye palette and a lipstick (there may have been more than 1 lipstick?), and I HAD to find the cute little makeup bag!
