Dueling Duochromes plus Blogroll

I love package day.  Every now and then I put in a big order on Amazon and the packages all show up from different vendors, all crammed in my mailbox.  I know I paid for this stuff, but it still feels like presents.  This is what I came home to yesterday:


Lots of prezzies!

I quickly opened them to make sure everything was accounted for.  That’s when I saw this:

Orly Space Cadet and Zoya Jem

Orly’s Space Cadet and Zoya’s Jem

Is it just me or am I on a theme here?  They’re both purple with a gold shimmer.  Space Cadet is stronger on the gold side, Jem is stronger on the purple side.  Still, I was kind of surprised that I’d had both of these items in my cart and didn’t realize how close they were.

I do most of my shopping while reading my blog feed from all of the nail bloggers I follow.  My nail feed currently has 26 nail blogs in it and I typically read the blog feed in one tab with Amazon or other retailer open in another tab.  Apparently I read One Gents Ten’s Zoya Jem review on the same day I decided to make up for buyer’s remorse and pick up that Orly Space Cadet I missed at CVS.

Speaking of blogs, here’s my list.  Check them out!  They’re great for inspiration.  If you don’t see your nail blog here and you’d like a follow, just let me know in the comments and I’ll add you.
