Stars and Stripes: Happy Fourth Of July

Wishing everyone a TASTY 4th of July! My family is having BBQ ribs & chicken (City Barbeque in Cincinnati, OH), potato salad, baked beans, cupcakes (Kroger's in Cincinnati, OH), strawberry shortcake (Krogers) and watermelon. I also had a chance to try Sinful Colors nail polish for the first time. They are inexpensive (Walgreens) and apply pretty good. I mean, I'm not giving up my Chanel, Butter London, OPI or anything HaHaHa but they have some cool colors on the cheap. I'm also doing some 4th of July shopping. Aren't the deep discounts & sales amazing!?! I'll have a couple of beauty reviews for you next week.

  72. I have a few sinful colors but they are not a favorite of mine. Some of the colors dry matte even though it doesn't say so on the bottle, I sometimes have to do more coats than usual, and I find that it chips easily. BUT for a cheap nail polish or to try a color out to see how it looks on my complexion I won't complain!

  75. I hope you had a great 4th of July Kim and I know what you mean about Sinful Colors (I'm actually wearing the snow white in my post today). They're not the greatest quality, but they're really cheap and have great colors that last at least 48 hours without chipping so they're good enough for me :))
