Hey guys. Kind of a quickie post today. Thanks for the lovely kind words about car theft yesterday. I was feeling crappy. Today was good. I had fun at work and the sun is sort of almost out. Also, the men's figure skating finals are on tonight and I'm kind of psyched. The whole boys jumping about in spandex thing is...how do I say this...pretty awesome.
As you all know, I have about a billion polishes to try out. What to choose, what to choose. I ended up choosing Milani Techno Red because I was really curious about the color. As I mentioned yesterday, the bottle is opaque (read: stupid) so I had to open it up to get an idea of the color. It looked like a jelly coral to me, so I was all about it.
Weak, weak sun. My cuticles look kind of dirty but they aren't. They are stained a little green from Rampage.

I actually really, really like this color. These images aren't really color accurate. It's a touch lighter in real life than it probably appears on your screen and also way, way brighter. I'd definitely call it a coral. When I was in high school I was completely obsessed with neons. When I painted my own nails they were usually highlighter neon pink. When I got manicures I got this color in between a neon orange and a neon red...and it looked just like Milani Techno Red. I guess I have some nostalgia attached to the color so maybe I'm biased. The formula was good. A jelly [squee!]. I used two coats here.
Stephanie got my art trivia question right again yesterday, so props! It was a detail of Ingres' La Grande Odalisque. No trivia today because I don't feel like digging through iPhoto to find another image. I'm kind of tired right now. I think I may be getting sick. Oh well. Time to relax! The week is almost over!
Thanks for reading, guys!
