aikolynn: (Candice - Model)
 Okay, so this post is about two days late...I'm sorry [personal profile] these_ordinary_days!  I woke up feeling really disgusting Friday morning...headache, body aches, plugged sinuses--the works.  Overall it was a very miserable day.  Taking your first major test of the semester feeling like you've been run over really isn't fun.  Even having this manicure couldn't cheer me up much, but it tried.

This is the first frost polish that I've actually taken a liking to.  As [personal profile] these_ordinary_days and [personal profile] jlailin know, I'm not a big fan of frost polishes, but this one totally won me over.  It's a duo-chrome glitter frost that applies with minimal streaking--amazing!  It flashes from this interesting green-gray olivey color to a lavender while giving off sparkles of glitter.  I layered a blue holo glitter polish over two of my nails for an extra glittery effect.

Colors Used:
  • OPI - Not Like The Movies
  • OPI - Last Friday Night
These polishes are both from the Katy Perry by OPI collection.  I got the entire collection in on Wednesday and couldn't resist.

I went to Longs Drugstore recently and took the time to really comb the Beauty section.  I noticed that Revlon has released and re-released a whole bunch of their nail enamels--even those that were limited edition glitters!  I finally got my hands on Whimsical, a supposed Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air dupe.  However, Facets of Fuchsia and Blue Mosaic, two that I already own, have been re-released under different names.  Even the third glitter from that limited collection, Starry Pink, was re-released as Popular.  Facets of Fuchsia has become Scandalous and Blue Mosaic is now called Radiant.  The shade Naughty is a re-release of Perplex and is also supposed to be a dupe of Chanel's Paradoxal.  I didn't pick up Popular (Starry Pink) because I found it dull...the glitters in it weren't sparkly and it was unappealing.  I suppose it would be a nice subtle polish, but light pinks really aren't for me.  Apparently, the Revlon polishes are getting better in quality.  I wasn't a big fan of the formula for Facets of Fuchsia (it was too watery and thin), but I heard that the new formulas are good.  Some even cover in two coats!

I also stopped by the Konad section as all Konad products were 30% off.  I decided to get some nail stickers since I barely have time to do nice nail designs this semester.  You'll be seeing them on my nails soon! ^^

Truthfully, I was also on the hunt for the new Garnier BB Creams.  I did find them at Longs, but they were $14.39 instead of the retailed $12.99.  I will probably purchase this from Target since it'll be retail price.  ^^

It isn't about "like," but about "love."

When I call you, drunk, and speak of my love for you, all you have to do is listen.
