Here in Corona, CA (Inland Empire, Southern California) we have a Mexican Restaurant that started as a hole-in-the wall local favorite and pretty soon grew to be a very well known Mexican fast food chain here in SoCal. It holds particular importance to me because I remember frequently going there with my best friend and her family back when we were teenagers. Back then it was in a building that was very unassuming and set back from the main street. The prices were low and the food was hearty. These days there is now a very fancy building, custom made, that houses Miguel's Restaurant. There are several Miguel's Jr.'s throughout SoCal and many more are in demand by their fans. I don't go to the restaurant much anymore (although, I was just there yesterday for $4 Margaritas & Anniversary Nachos) but I frequent the Miguel's Jr. close to my house. I love their hot sauce! I also love their BRC's (Bean Rice & Cheese Burrito). Yesterday they celebrated 40 years in Corona and of course I had to join in!
Duri, Cognac XO is my new replacement for Essie, Very Structured. THIS is what I was hoping Very Structured would be like on the nail. I love this color; it's like a brick red mixed with a burnt orange and it is so rich looking. The formula is great too; the consistency is perfect and very easy to apply. I also love their brush, it's a wide flat tipped brush that fans over the nail nicely. I look forward to wearing this again.
China Glaze, Solar Power is a shimmery yellow. Out of the yellows I have tried I like this one the best. It still required 3 coats and it is streaky like typical yellows, but I found it dried pretty quickly and I love the shimmer in it. There's just something about yellow that cheers me up instantly. The consistency was a little thin but I will take that over a thick yellow any day.
