So Nars isn't my go-to for nail polish, only because they have such great face products, I dunno.. I'd rather spend on a Nars shadow than a Nars polish, no? No. Nuh-uh. Not anymore. I am SOLD on the Nars polishes this holiday! They have a great set of kabuki inspired colors that I will most likely buy for a certain friend, I know she'll love these!
The second one is my favourite, and the one I will probably spend the big bucks on! It's called Endless Night, and the peeps at Nars deem it a black grape color. I'd say it's about right, it comes on super dark, and has hints of berry color in it.
I ♥ EET!
I'm also falling a little more everyday for the Chanel Rouge Carat (here's a swatch).. It's a nice Christmas red, with light fushia shimmer, which makes it go from gorgeous to cool, and back to gorgeous. I can't say I'm AS excited about it than I am about the new spring 2012 colors (April and June, I'm looking at YOU!).
This next product is like... TOO cool. I can't get over it, I MUST own this shit. I mean look at that! The black/purple one is way awesome.
It's Nails Inc. London's new Magnetic Polish. Basically, two of my favorite things mixed together in a Holy Grail fashion: nail polish and physics!! This nail polish has built-in magnetic particles, and the cap has a magnet.. you do the math! The resulting look is AWESOME, from what I saw on the swatches I google'd anyways! (This swatch's from The Polished Medic blog.) Anyhow, you can buy these babies at Sephora right here.
One last nail product and I SWEAR I'm done.. lol But this thing is just... undeniable. I can't honestly do a "wishing haul" without mentioning the AMAZEBALLS set Sephora released. Not three, not five, but *18* OPI for Sephora nail polish minis!!!! And the colors are all absolutely amazing! Entirely worth the 48$ it sells for.

Yep, this is how my beauty ranting goes: nails, and then the rest. lulz
I fell in love with the Stila Dream in Full Palette. I mean how gorgeous is it?! And for 39$... totally affordably fab! There's so many good neutrals there..
Also LOVING the Kat Von D "Art of Elysium" Palette in Kimberly, the colors are absolutely gorgeous, and I need more purple in my life (and, in general, more Kat Von D! One day, she'll get to ink my glorious epiderm..) I just bought her tattoo liner in Lapdance recently (dark purple), so this would go very nicely! I mean look at that!!
Another product I'm dying to try is this foundation by NYX. I don't even know if this brand's available in Canada, but they have some really cool products! I would order online, but it's foundation... y'know? The kind of stuff you wanna TRY before investing 15$ into it. (although that's a good price for foundation...) The reviews are good, people say it compares to MUFE, has good coverage AND is lightweight and paraben-free! Do want.
Last (but not least!) is this illuminating powder, from the Nars holiday collection. It's sort of a blush/highlighting powder, but seriously, I would use this everywhere, on my cheeks, eyes, in the décolleté.... I just LOVE the color to death! (I was actually disappointed this wasn't a straight eyeshadow.. is there any wrong with wearing cheek color on your eyelids?! Hope not..)
Anyhow, that's all for today, I need to get back to my 18th century philosophers...
