Last year, I reviewed some glow in the dark polishes. The polishes don’t stop happening, so neither do I! Let’s do this!   Ghoulish Nail Color This is the same brand I liked the best last year. It’s sold at Rite-Aid. Initially I wasn’t going to review it, but the…

Caramel Macchiato Candy Corn: Delicious Treat, or Just a Trick?
I’m not that big a fan of candy corn. On the other hand I love coffee. When I saw caramel macchiato candy corn, I thought that might just work. Since poor X1up Girl still has candy corn burnout from last year, I thought I’d step up and review this one.…
Trying Some Science! Making My Own Color Changing Nail Polish
I’ve always thought color changing “mood” nail polish was neat. However, the stuff they sell at places like Claire’s isn’t that great. The polishes available from places like Etsy strike me as being awfully expensive for the risk of trying a small brand. Then, I came across this post from…
Arkangel318’s Wild Ophelia Chocolate Review
This brand of chocolate has been available at my local Walgreen’s for some time. I’ve always been curious about them, because of the…unique…flavors, but the price has always put me off.

Limeade Oreo Review – Now With Recipe!

Holiday Candy Roundup!
The day after Halloween, I went to my local Wal-Mart hoping to score some sweet half-price candy markdowns. Sadly, they had nothing. Not even a lollipop. What they did have was a plethora of holiday candy. I chose four of what I felt were the most interesting ones, and gave…
Arkangel318’s Glow in the Dark Nail Polish Roundup
First things first: None of these polishes wear like traditional nail polish. You will see chipping much sooner than usual. They all have a paint-like texture to them. None of this will turn your fingernails into glow sticks. However, in all but one case, you will have more than enough…

Claire’s Signs of Spirit Nail Stamping Kit Review
