Temptalia Asks You


If you could design your own nail polish, what color would it be? What kind of finish?

Temptalia's AnswerI think I’d probably make it a medium-dark fuchsia-pink with black and gold micro-glitter.  It’d be sexy and shimmery and smart!

Haul: For the boy’s birthday, I treated him to a massage (at a SPA!)… which also meant that I got to tag along (at my expense, though!) – so I suppose that should count as a haul! :)

Excited for: Celebrating the boy’s birthday again when his family comes to visit, plus celebrate my sister and the boy’s birthday with my family, too.  Yes, having your boyfriend’s birthday be a day after your sister makes for a very busy week!

Temptalia Asks You


Do you depot your makeup products? Do you have to have everything in a palette?

Temptalia's AnswerNo, not all.  I depot all of my MAC eyeshadows, and at some point, I will get around to doing blushes–just because they are taking up WAY too much space all in pots.  But for other brands, I don’t have a compulsion to depot as much.
