As promised, here is my second review of some nail colors from the revamped Anna Sui collection. Last time I looked at three speckled cremes; here, I’ll show you a few other shades and textures.
Oh, and I forgot to mention the packaging design last week — it’s a new one, with a bell-shaped bottle and a little bird in some flowers on the cap.
The independent perfume line Aroma M has quietly expanded its catalogue to include a line of camellia oil-based skincare products, adding new items one by one. I’m already a devoted fan of the collection’s facial oil and hair oil, but the Camellia Cleaning Oil took me a while longer to try. That’s only because I’ve never cleansed with oils before, as much as I love them for post-washing treatment. I don’t know why; the time just had to be me right for me to experiment.
I recently promised more information on the new Anna Sui polishes that I’ve been sampling, so here is the first of two posts reviewing them!

I’ve been working such a strange schedule lately that I’m not even sure what day it is, and I’m running slightly short on sleep. All the same, I’m really enjoying my new part-time museum job (as well as my assorted freelance jobs, which continue!), and I always like to celebrate a new project with a new lipstick. My latest pick is Marc Jacobs Sheer Lip Gel in Eat Cake, from the “New Nudes” Collection.
