Autism Awareness ~ NY & Company Oceanic + Giveaway

*My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and all of the families of those harmed in the Boston bombings. If any of you are in that area, I pray protection over you and your loved ones.*

Hey dolls! Today I have photos for you of another blue polish in support of autism awareness. A speech-language pathologist is one of the team of professionals who may work with a child who has autism. Our national organization, the American Speech Language and Hearing Association, has some great information on the types of services a slp can provide here.

Late last year I found out that NY & Company, one of my most favorite clothing stores, was releasing polishes. Naturally, I had to pick up several of the shades because of the price ($5.95 each or two for $10). Oceanic, a deep blue shimmer, is the first one I tried. The formula was a little thin, but not runny. The brush was thin, long, and spread easily on the nail. Two coats of Oceanic were used for opacity. I had a horrible smudge on my index finger, which I was too lazy to fix, hence only three fingers seen below.

Oceanic, while not extremely unique, is a pretty blue shimmer. For the price and formula, it’s worth checking out if you don’t have anything similar already. My hubby, knowing that I love NYCO, picked up several polishes for me along with a gift card last Christmas. He knows the colors I like so well, that he picked up Oceanic too. Yes, that means I have an extra bottle! If you’d like to give Oceanic a try, see the details below.

    Current favorite clothing store is Macy’s. Their dresses are so cute!

      I feel like I can never find much there! Mostly formal dresses or suits. I do love the accessory department though.

    My fave clothing store…hmm, hard choice between Kohls and Marshalls

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      Love Kohls. I have to be in the mood for Marshalls though.

  • MariJo Nails

    This is such a stunning polish!! I can’t believe I still haven’t picked any up. NY & Co. is hands down my favorite clothing store. I get all my work clothes from there and I’ve picked up a few pairs of jeans too.

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      Thanks! You definitely have to try the polish. I’m trying to resist the $100 off $200 coupon NYCO has right now.

      • MariJo Nails

        Girl! I’ve been purposely deleting their emails without looking AND throwing the coupons that come in the garbage. I can only resist for so long though, lol.

    My favorite cothing store is Cato. I am busty and hippy amd their clothes fit me perfectly.

    • Lesley Metheny

      I’ve never heard of that store. I’m hippy too..I checked out their website and they same really cute stuff! Unfortunately, there are no stores in MD. :( I’ll have to keep watching to see if they open one near me!

      • MelodyJ

        There are a lot of Catos in VA. So maybe you can make the trip down. Someone told me their clothes last as long as J.C. Penney’s clothes does.

        • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

          We used to have a Cato here, but it closed. They have great accessories too!

    My favorite clothing store is Kohls and JC Pennys

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      I feel like I need to check out JC Penny since a few of you have mentioned it.

  • Tiffany Jordan

    My favorite clothing store for work attire is NY&Co and for everything else… Macy’s!

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      For some odd reason, I never have much luck with clothes at Macy’s other than formal wear or suits. I love their accessory department though.

  • Rachel H

    My favorite clothing store is probably Kohls!

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      I’ve been into Kohl’s the last 6 months or so because of the Lauren Conrad collections. So many great pieces!

  • Lesley Metheny

    For work clothes, NY & Co is the first place I go! For casual wear, I’ll go to Target! :) Thank you for the giveaway!

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      Two of my favorite places!

    My favorite clothing store is lord and taylor outlet

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      How I wish there was one where I live!

  • Rebecca Cook

    JCPenny is my fave. They have good quality clothing for a lower price. While they do some of the trends, you can buy a lot of classic pieces that will still be wearable years down the road.

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      I’ve been hearing that JCP has revamped with new buyers and they have more on trend clothing. I haven’t shopped there in the longest though.

  • MelodyJ

    My favorite is the Loft for dressy and causal.

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      Love the Loft as well. I’ve gotten great suits from there.

  • April Gevedon

    My fav clothing store is a small time chain called Goody’s! I live in KY, so Idk if you have heard of them? But they are always having sales. like everyday…& what’s better than a sale?! lol Thanks for the giveaway, that polish looks spectacular!!!

    • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

      I’m originally from SC and we have Goody’s there! They did always have the best sales.

  • http://www.refinedandpolished.com KayJay at Refined & Polished

    I love jcpenny and rue21

  • Denise F

    I haven’t gone shopping in forever!! I guess it would be Brandy Melville since it is casual.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rachel.beltz.1 Rachel Beltz

    Forever 21 probably :)
    but recently I have looked at things on Romwe and Chicnova and I think I am in love with their clothes!
