I have NO IDEA if I'm ever going to actually finish wearing all the Icing "black glitters" I bought. I got through three of them. Shitty application, terrible wear. Color me NOT IMPRESSED. I'm so glad I only spent $5 on these on clearance instead of the $16 original price. Really.
Soooo anyhow. Yesterday I bought my wedding dress. It's not a wedding dress-wedding dress, just a white cotton dress. Appropriate for getting married on the beach, I think, and I LOVE it. NOW I just need to decide what polish colors I'm going to wear.
This is what it looks like outside today. Look at that wisteria! Too bad I have a horrible phobia of bees/wasps/flying-stinging-things. It's freaking beautiful!
ALSO today, I dyed my hair bright ass cherry red. Pardon the hair-in-the-face, but I wasn't wearing any makeup.. LOL.
Here is a color I picked up on clearance recently at Sally's. China Glaze "Cherry Pie." It's more of an orange-toned red than what I would normally pick, but this color has been on my toes for a week or two now and I LOVE it on my toes. It's a red jelly with a glass-flecked finish.
I also picked up some Butter London polishes from Hautelook a couple weeks ago because they were $5 apiece. Color me not impressed. I'm seriously glad I only paid $5 for these. I've only tried two of the four I bought. The first one, Swinger, was so bad I ended up just removing it halfway through and putting this one on instead. Not even so much as a picture.
This is Billy No Mates, a very soft grey.
I got bored with that and decided to do a vintage-y half-moon mani, using Zoya Ibiza on top of it. I then prompty destroyed that by doing dishes. I'm trying to slowly shape my nails into more of an oval shape instead of square or squoval. I want more of a vintage look. But it takes time, my nails aren't that long, so I figure I'll eventually get the oval/almond shape I want with regular, proper filing.
In other news, I have a bunch of nail polish I want to give away. Some is new, some is used. I'm thinking of doing a contest to give away the unused stuff, and then maybe just having a free-for-all, first-come-first served thing for the used stuff I want to be rid of. I have too much and I need to destash. I figure for the free-for-all, I'd just want someone to pay shipping, which would depend on how many bottles you got. What do you guys think? Is this a good idea or no? I feel like I'm becoming a hoarder, and I KNOW I'll never wear a lot of the stuff I have.
