Given how much I “heart” Priti Soy Nail Polish Remover, I’m rather surprised that is has taken me this long to try Priti Nail Polish, a non-toxic, 3 Free nail polish developed to be safe for children and expectant moms.
As part of my very first Priti Nail Polish haul, I picked up an intriguing neutral shade called Sweet Sultan, described as a “matted gray rose” on the Priti website. Sweet Sultan by Priti NYC has since become one of my favorite nail polish shades ever, a really great work-to-play neutral polish. It’s even up there with my favorite Paul & Joe Beaute Nail Enamel in 05 Teacup.
Tons More Photos & Swatches of Priti Nail Polish in Sweet Sultan…
The first photo above shows Sweet Sultan applied in 1-2 coats: › Continue reading

Meilily Hot Happenings Recap! Favorites from the Renegade Craft Fair!
Had a great time at the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco this past weekend! Did you go? Loved meeting tons of designers and supporting small/local businesses at the same time.
Some of my favorite designers from the 2010 SF Renegade Craft Fair:
- Nous Savons: Not only were the lapel necklaces unique and fun, but creator Jocelyn Nguyen was really sweet and friendly.
- Catia Chien: Illustrations – Delicate and beautiful. The children’s books she illustrated looked great! (Btw: Catia’s not listed on the Craft Fair artists page.)
- Souldier: Loved their reclaimed seat belt camera straps when I saw them on Photojojo – So many cool colors! Picked up a forest green camera strap, and I’m still trying to imagine the car it came from! (Souldier also makes guitar straps.)
- I Made You a Beard: Well-fitting well-made yarn beards. Need I say more?

Meilily Sale Alert and Product Pick!
Greenloop, a “green” online shop, is currently having a fantastic 30% off sale on Envirosax bags, the best reusable shopping bags ever! If I were to make a list of products that have actually made my life way easier, I would put Envirosax Reusable Shopping Bags on the list.
What: Greenloop 30% Off Envirosax Sale + Free Shipping Offer
Greenloop Free Shipping Code: BYOB09
When: Until February 2, 2009
Envirosax reusable bags are roomy, durable, attractive, and also very easy to store. I can attest to stuffing these full of heavy groceries without any problem. The Envirosax bags are made of lightweight polyester, printed using a non-fading process, and are supposed to be waterproof. Another thing that sets the Envirosax shopping bags apart from other bags is their self-closing feature (you can’t see it in product photos)- Just roll up a bag and the snap closure loops attached to the bottom wrap easily around the bag for compact storage. › Continue reading
