Starting the week (on a Wednesday) with my completely underwhelming new curiosity in the nail polish world: MANNEQUIN HANDS! I don’t know why (possibly it’s the winter blah’s, evidenced by my disintegration into jeans and t-shirts every day.) but the idea of long, monochrome fingers is really appealing to me right now. I just ordered OPI’s “San Tan-Tonio” from the new Texas Collection, which seems like a darker mannequin hands variation. But this OPI, “Rose Petals” is a weenie to put on, sheer and thick and weird, but looks so puuuuuuuurdy.
It’s a beautiful nudey pink, that gives me major mannequin hands.
Which would generally be a bad thing, but considering the situation of my life right now is NOT A BAD THING AT ALL.
I do def have some VNL, and it is super duper prone to bald spots.
I think that this was originally my mother’s. I may have stolen it from her.
Okay, on to the pictures of this tan with pink notes jelly:
Have a happy Hump Day!
Hey all! I hope that you had a great weekend! I just got back from break in my hometown of San Francisco and am now back in the middle of nowhere, but its snowy, so it’s okay!
Today I’m going to show you guys the nail polish that matches my hair! (just a streak of my hair, but it still counts.) it also matches my iphone case! my boyfriend said that I looked like “hipster Barbie” which is a little bit of an oxymoron, but I think I was flattered?
Well, to the nail polish! it’s a pretty averagely amazing neon pink. it is bright and sassy, without being too crazy. It dries to a really satiny finish, which is unacceptable for me (either be matte or bling it up, is my motto.), so it definitely needed a topcoat. Surprisingly, it goes with quite a lot! it’s not clashy, and is almost understatedly neon on the nails, if that makes sense! To the pictureses!
(trying to show it with different backgrounds, because I’m really picky about pinks, and I feel the necessity to know what they will look like in different environments)
And now, just for kicks, check out my color coordinated life!
Have a good tuesday, all!
Years! This has been a great year! so… to celebrate I
am going to deliver the death of all my readers eyes in glitter
form. Here it is: Eyeko “Chi Chi Polish” with China Glaze “Solar
Flare” (my new favorite nail polish, BY THE WAY) on top of it.
“Chi Chi Polish” is
tiny (but not micro, think the width of a pin) robust dusty pale pink
glitter in a slightly murky pinkish beige sheer base. I wanted so
badly to be overwhelmed with love for this polish, but found myself
liking a close dupe (Milani Disco Lights) which i got for my best
friend better. The description of the base as murky is not an
exaggeration, sadly. It makes it so that it’s opaque, but I t also
makes it less sparkly and exciting. I also found myself suffering
from gaping bald spots, which aren’t noticeable while doing the
polish (I have no idea why. maybe my eyes just don’t work). So
wholly, I am underwhelmed and will swap this polish away at the
next possible chance. China Glaze “Solar Flare,” on the other hand,
is right up my short and well lighted alley. It’s HUGE HEXAGONAL
GOLDEN GLITTER. yes, let me repeat that. HUGE. HEXAGONAL. GOLDEN.
GLITTER. I will probably post a picture heavy post with pictures of
this topcoat on top of EVERY NAIL
POLISH IN EXISTENCE because that’s what I’ve been putting
it on. It makes anything look classy and festive. not so much this
manicure, since its new years and therefore by definition not
classy (lets just say that my dress has less dress than sequins,
and less sequins than skin), but it’s still fun and exciting,
without being overwhelming! it’s my new love, and may be the second
polish in my collection that I need to buy a backup for. Because
honestly, these beautiful flakes of golden glitter are the loves of
my life. However, like most polishes of this sort, the glitters
drag towards the end of your nail, and require placement. They’re
also hell if they hang off your nail or cuticle, even a widdle bit.
Also, when it comes to removal they become fortresses of unmovable
nail polish, acting like impenetrable hats for the nail polish that
you want to remove. (I just imagined all my nail polishes with
little golden party hats, BY THE WAY) But the positives so far
outweigh the negatives that its silly not to love it with all my
heart and soul. oh! and i have the best best friend on earth. Miss
amazingest amazing ever got me… PERPLEX! yes, Perplex. In in all
its glory (and it has a lot of glory, if I may say so myself). I
will post pictures soon, so that others can share in my “can’t stop
staring at my nails because nothing else on earth could measure up”
joy. OH yeah! and she’s the double best because she gave me Orly
“Space Cadet” as well, which makes me feel like Ke$ha. And who the
hell doesn’t want to feel like Ke$ha every once in a while? I
mean… you get to wake up in the morning and feel like P-Diddy. I
secretly love Ke$ha so much. Happy New Year! Love, Frida
