Happy Sunday, polish fiends! Today's post is going to be pretty picture-heavy, first with my nails of the day and then with a tag that I didn't realize I had until yesterday. First thing's first, my polish today. I wanted to use another Rescue Beauty Lounge. I was so desperate to use another one that I took off Drifter even though it was wearing really well. By the way, Drifter is amazing. It looks different in all different lights and I couldn't stop staring at my hands. The polish I chose today is Starfish Patrick, of the Spongebob spring (2009?) collection. Little things like this really bother me: on the Rescue Beauty website the name of this polish is hyphenated (Starfish-Patrick), but on the box and on the polish it isn't (Starfish Patrick). I'm going to go with the latter. Anyway, the description Ji gives of this shade on the website is dead on: "If your fingernails could blush, they'd turn this shade of sheer peachy coral. Utterly feminine, yet super chic and sophisticated." Indeed, this polish is all three of those adjectives and more.
By a window, natural light
I was kind of nervous about this one because it's a sheer. As you can see, I still have some visible nail line, but it's not that big a deal. I thought it would bother me more. This was four coats, but they were four easy coats. It wasn't streaky or anything; the formula was perfect. I think this could be my holy grail polish for spring and summer while Drifter could fill that spot for autumn and winter. I think it would be a great pedicure color, too. I love jellies and how they kind of look...squishy :) As for the name...I never liked Spongebob. I kind of didn't get it. I remember when Spongebob paraphernalia started inundating Hot Topic when I was in high school. My best friend was obsessed with it. I guess it was a fad that just passed me by. That having been said, I do think this color looks like Patrick. It's a cute name.
And now for the tag. Ange-Marie of Scandalously Polished tagged me for "Five Guys I Used To Like." Sorry it took me so long to do this. I'm seriously behind on my blog readin'. Prepare yourselves, ladies.
Numero uno is Brian Littrell of the Backstreet Boys. I was obsessed. I had pictures of him all over my walls as a tween. He's really religious now with babies and a wife. Lame.
Then we have Leonardo Dicaprio, with whom I am still kind of obsessed. He beefed up for The Departed. I guess I'm talking about Titanic-era Leo for my obsession of yore. C'mon. He's too cute. And God, do I love a man in a suit.
And of course JTT. He's Simba, he's Randy Taylor, and he went to Harvard (I think?). What's not to love?
Andrian Grenier of Drive Me Crazy fame. Look at that hair. Those eyes. Those lips! The late 90s produced the cutest teen movie boys. He was STILL adorable in The Devil Wears Prada.
Last but FOR SURESIES not least, Jesse Bradford of Bring It On and Swimfan fame. Ooo, he was adorable.
And just for fun, my current and eternal obsession:
RDJ. Seriously, he drives me crazy. My boyfriend and I went to see Avatar the other day and there was a life-sized cutout of RDJ as Sherlock Holmes...in period dress. I almost fell over. I love everything he has done (Fur, anyone?) and even his jank mugshot does not deter me.
Betsy, you need to do this, too.
