10 things tag!

this took longer than i wanted it too, but it was hard to come up with ten things! also, i can never decide who to tag in things like this, so whoever wants to do it :)

How it works: list 10 things that make you happy and tag 10 blogs, and make sure you let them know.

Here we go;

1. music.
2. animals.
3. books.
4. Alice In Wonderland.
5. Marvel comics, especially X-Men.
6. makeup.
7. nail polish, of course.
8. candy.
9. Resident Evil.
10. coffee.

so yeah, some of them were vague (wow guys, i like music! what a surprise! :p) but if i got specific on them, we would be here forever.

Hen Party/Sea? I Told You!/Sunshine on Snowflakes

i have some backlog to catch up on! this is two coats of butter LONDON Hen Party, and one or one and a half of OPI Sea? I Told You!. i got inspired to do this while i was watching The Little Mermaid :D

Hen Party is a sheer nude with a lavender flash, i don't think you could get it opaque on its own. if you wanted to you could use one coat because it's not streaky, i just used two because my nails are more yellow than i'm comfortable with.

Sea? I Told You! is a gorgeous shimmery blue that really does remind me of the sea!

a couple days later, i added a coat of Piggy Polish Sunshine on Snowflakes, which is my favorite holographic top coat.

i really like it with SoS, it makes it more mermaid-y!

my Konad stuff shipped a couple of hours ago, i'm so excited to get them! i got the starter kit, and plates m57 and m73. i'm going to be so indecisive when they get here.

MAC - Seriously Hip

EDIT: i just saw that my blog has comments! i thought it would automatically send me email notifications, so i didn't notice them until now. i set it up to notify me now, though. thank you to those who have commented, it really does make me happy that people like it enough to comment. especially since i'm a pretty new blogger :)

another color i got for Christmas! i really wanted this color, i went to a few different MAC counters and one store but none of them had it. after i opened it, my mom said she went to Macy's (i hadn't gotten to Macy's yet since i made a polish stop at Urban Outfitters) and got the last one they had. i was so excited to put it on! sorry for the not so good picture, it was the only one that came out right and i'm still trying to figure out what looks best.

i'm pretty sure this was in sunlight. i did one coat, but two would be better. Seriously Hip is a dark olive-gold with shimmer and various sized flakies. it looks gorgeous in the bottle, but once i put it on i was a little disappointed. it was darker than in the bottle, and there wasn't as many flakies as i thought there would be. but once i got out in the sun it looked much better! you could see more of the flakies and it was lighter. not quite as light as it is in the bottle, but it's still very pretty.
