Nail Polish Swatches: Zoya, Jesse's Girl, Lancome, NARS, Canmake

Let's continue with more nail polish swatches...getting tired of them yet? I certainly am not :) It's also been fun reorganizing these pictures stored in my computer, and looking at what shades of nail polishes I already wore and how they looked on my nails.

So let's begin...same old rules, all polishes are applied with 2 coats unless otherwise indicated. Left image is taken with either natural light or room light, right is taken with flash. 

Jesse's Girl -- Stiletto

Canmake -- 06

Lancome -- Sarong

NARS -- Orgasm

Zoya -- Cassi

New Blog Announcement: Lulu's Journey to Motherhood

Lulu's Journey to Motherhood
-- All the little things for mommy and baby.

Hello world! 2013 is an exciting year for Lulu and Mr. Lulu. We were ecstatic to find out that a mini-Lulu is on the way! When we met mini-Lulu on the ultrasound for the first time, mini-Lulu wiggled and waved to us on screen — not even born yet and already excited about entering the world!



As a first time mom, there are so much to learn and so much stuff to prepare for. A quick research about baby product shopping earlier this week turned into hours of meticulous notes-taking and browsing that left me with a stiff neck and a headache. Overwhelmed was exactly how I felt at that moment. There are just so many brands out there for everything. For someone who is as selection-challenged as me, options are BAD! As I begin this new journey to motherhood, and start trying out the new range of mommy and baby products that I am dealing with for the first time in my life, I thought it would be a good idea to document all the little things for baby and mommy, products big or small, and my thoughts on them on luluandbaby.wordpress.com. Hopefully as we go further along on this journey together, it will both help myself to become more knowledgable, and my reviews will help clueless new moms like myself to get started on their own journeys to motherhood.


Of course, being the beauty-addict that I still am, I will also be reviewing a fair share of mommy beauty products (stretch mark oils, bust creams, you name it!) on my new blog. All my other non-pregnancy related beauty product reviews will still remain here on Luluchinadoll.blogspot.com. I will be sure to periodically post a summary of mommy beauty products that I reviewed on luluandbaby.wordpress.com so you can refer to them if you are interested. 
Thanks for your support!
