So... I have Lily Bloom... It's a nice, quick drying white, but I'm kind of sick of it already.
This is two coats, very quick drying like most essence polishes. Also it's matte, and that helped. Except that made it a little flat. The shimmer in the bottle wasn't really evident on the nail.
Hrm. So I still have no idea what 'art' I was going to do, but at some point I decided to do a little experiment with the (generic) Elmer's glue and some loose glitter I got in last October's Julep Maven box.
That worked out pretty well. Except the part where I wasn't about to use a thin liner brush for the glue so my lines are the result of a toothpick. lol The glitter sticks to the glue, and the glue sticks well to the polish. I could rub it without all kinds of glitter coming off. Then I just used the toothpick to pop the glue strips off.
Ta-da! Awesome. No idea what I'm going to ultimately do with this information, but perhaps one of you can come up with some kickass idea. ;)
So... I know I said I wasn't going to get the essence Nude Glam polishes because they were kinda 'meh'; and it's not like I don't have enough essence polishes as it is.... LOL Who am I kidding? I'll never have enough. ;) Anyway, they only had two of the four colors left, but for 99cents I couldn't say no.
That's Cotton Candy and Peach & Cream. They're both super sheer and I'm not expecting either to be really flattering, but... ya know, 99cents. They also have a bunch of the 'new' core line polishes on sale for 99cents so I'm wondering if they're trying to sell off the old ones before refreshing the inventory or perhaps they're going to sell those off and stock with some of the core polishes we didn't get the first time around. o_O That would be awesome!! You know I'll be checking daily until I have some kind of answer. ;)
Huh. My mom finally tracked down a box of Twinkies. We used to be really big Twinkie eaters until they changed the recipe back to the more "original" banana-ish flavor. *vomits* The 'new' ones taste more like the Twinkies I grew up with, but... they're not quite as substantial. I'd say about two-thirds the cream filling and the cake isn't quite as dense. Hrm. *shrugs* I was always more into the Suzi Qs anyway. Welp, laptop just overheated so I think I'll take a quick nap before dinner. Hope y'all have been enjoying your weekend!
