We are all now well into the month of October, but I wanted to wear something summery and fun since it is still pretty hot over here in Phoenix. My friend Reece sent me a dupe of Essie Pink Parka that she found in the land of hockey and poutine up north, but ended up sending me four other neon-y colors too!
I couldn’t decide what to wear, so I ended up wearing all of the colors!
The brand is Billie Cosmetics. I have never heard of them, but boy do they make some kick-ass neons. I don’t think I’ve ever worn neons that apply so well as these. The purple was almost opaque in one coat! AND the blue didn’t stain! Ahhhh! What is this alternate universe I live in?
The names are all pretty plain too: Purple, Blue, Lime, Orange…and then there’s Pink Pansy. Yeah, I don’t get it. The purple reminds me of China Glaze Flying Dragon, minus the gritty “glitter.” And for some reason, I want to give up my bottle ChG Kiwi Kool-ada, but I will vehemently protect this bottle of green neon-icity to my death!
A lot of you have been asking me where I get my rings, so I will let you in on my little secret: I have been getting a lot of my cool rings from a website called The Carrot Box. It is run by a woman out of Vancouver who specializes in resin, stone, wood, glass, and other natural media to create some of the most awesome rings I have ever had the pleasure of wearing. The one I’m wearing here has gotten a tiny bit too big, but I love the colors so much that I can’t stop wearing it! I may have to get a chain and wear it around my neck instead.
I will warn you that you have to take some extra caution when you wear her more delicate pieces; I don’t know how many I’ve broken because I was being careless (or the piece being too loose and literally flying off my finger), but I think the count is up to about four or five. It is very sad.
Thanks for reading!
