H & M Look At Me

So, a little story behind this polish.  A couple months ago, Deborah from Love, Varnish, Chocolate and More (seriously, if you don't already follow her, do so now, she's awesome!) emailed me and told me she wanted to send me some H&M polishes.  See, the H&M stores we have here don't really have a polish selection, and Deborah post's a lot of her H&M lovelies.  So she offered to send me some, no strings attached.  When I read the email, it made my heart smile.

One thing you may not know about me, is that I hate people.  Ok, yes, I know, that sounds awful, let me rephrase it, I hate MOST people.  There is so much ugly (I don't mean that in a looks kinda way), hateful and hurtful people in this world, it makes me very jaded.  I see a lot of these kinds of people at work.  BUT the silver lining is, that when someone is the opposite of this, it makes my heart smile.  I can't be the only one that gets these kinds of feelings right?  It's like a lightness I get.  Kinda like the Grinch who's small black heart  grows into a normal size heart.  LOL!

So anyways, I wanted to thank Deborah for her kindness in thinking about me, and I'm going to send her a package as well, even though there were no strings attached to her package.  (BTW Deborah, I'm stopping off at the post office today to pick up an international shipping box....one step closer to getting off my ass and sending your package! lol).

Well this lovely is one of the 5 polishes Deborah sent me (of which I've already worn three!).


 This is H&M Look At Me.  This polish jumped right out at me the minute I opened the package.  Even in all the bubble wrap I could tell it was stunning.  This reminds me of a-England's Percival which I think I don't need now.  And interestingly enough, I don't think I have a polish like this in my collection.  This polish just glows, with it's metallic-y redness.


This polish was absolute perfection.  This is a definite one coat kinda polish (but I always use two).  The brush was a little wonky (which none of the other polishes she sent were).  The brush is kinda thick and floppy (that's what she said.  *zing*), but nothing I couldn't deal with.  This is also a great stamping polish, along with another color she got me, Fabulous Nails Honey which I regret, I didn't get good pics of when I wore it.

So thank you Deborah, from the bottom of my smiling heart!

  3. Aw, this red is gorgeous! Perceval has been in my wishlist for as long as I can remember, this could actually replace it, even if it's not dupe, it is just as awesome!

  10. Deborah is just so sweet! I still don't understand why our H&M's don't have a polish selection? Even the new one they added to Alderwood. It's so weird!

  11. Going to hang my head in shame here, but I have not been to the mall in ages! I didn't even know we have H&M there now. Really too bad they don't have polishes though :(

  12. Hey, there's no shame in not going to the mall! I hate the mall. Usually the only thing that drives me there is polish and BBW. Otherwise I try to avoid it.
