Claire's Diva & Icing Roger That

Today I found this smaller beauty supply store in the mall closest to me. They sold OPI & Essie polishes so I grabbed OPI Funky Dunkey. I've been into the blue and purples cremes lately so that fulfilled a lemming! They also had a small salon in there, that offered eyebrow threading which I haven't been able to find near me! I can't wax my brows because I have such sensitive skin I get really bad reactions including one time my eye swelled up the size of golf ball! Anyways, I got my brows done and Funky Dunkey in one trip! I've lived here 3 years and never stopped in there until now. I'll definitely being going back for polishes and brow touch ups!

Today I'm going to show you Claire's Diva and Icing Roger That. I like Claire's and Icing polishes they don't have the widest selection but they do have some unique colors and usually have BOGO sales on cosmetics so it works out well.

Claire's Diva

I know this looks weird. What I did is on my index and ring finger I did the polish over black and one my middle and pinky finger I did it on its on. It's a med-purple micro glitter in a clear base. I think it looks great either way, but over the black it really add a lot of depth!

Icing Roger That

At first I thought this was a dupe to ChG Watermelon Rind, but it's definitely not. I'd say Roger That is Watermelon Rind's lighter and brighter cousin. It is a turquoise jelly base with silver glass fleck. It's a beautiful polish, that has actually been in my untrieds for over a year. Shame on me! I will definitely be sporting this beauty more.

That's it for today. I am hitting the pool today. It is so hot out here I just want to swim. I'm so excited. I used to swim all the time as a kid, but as I hit my teens I never wanted to swim anymore because I was so self conscious about how I looked in a swimsuit. I'm sure we've all been there. It sucks, because I loved swimming so much. Now at 23, I don't give a rat's behind so I'm going to enjoy it!

Have a great day!


  1. Claire's Diva is so beautiful! I want to check out the Claire's chunky polishes but every time I venture to the mall (once a week, lol) I forget to go into Claire's!

    You're so lucky that you get to go swimming today! It's like 45 degrees here :( *sigh*

  2. Hi Steph,

    What a crazy coincidence. I am also getting my eyebrows threaded this tomorrow. I have never had it done before, and do not know what to expect. Ah, the things I do for my blog. :)
    What were your thoughts on the treading? Was it quick, did it hurt, did if get rid off all the hairs?


  3. Threading is great!! It does take a bit more time than waxing since it's more precise (15-20 minutes). It's not painful or anything bad per say but you do feel bit of that pinchy/pully feeling. It's nothing that would make you flinch badly or anything. It does get rid of all the hairs and I think it does a better job because it is more precise. It also is so much better on your skin. I've never had any reactions or skin irritation from threading like I had with waxing.

  4. I really like the Claire's polish and I love the layering you did. Enjoy the pool it is a frigid 49 where I'm at today. lol

  5. I adore the first glittery purple.
    I don't usually like glitter nail polish, but that's absolutely stunning.


  6. I'm sorry to those of you who are in colder climates. I would gladly trade you this time of year I can't stand the heat! I will try to send warmer weather your way!
