Happy Friday! Ack, I had to get up at 4 this morning and it was unpleasant. I am going to divulge some super secret information to you, my dearest readers; that secret information is this: people love their damn coffee in the morning. I felt so busy all morning. I didn't end up eating until like 12:30 so that was sad. BUT! Now I am fed, caffeinated and polished, so I'm ready to share my nails with you. Today's post is going to be picture-heavy. First, another Milani holo, Cyberspace.
For the life of me I could not get a good picture of this polish on my nails. The bottle picture looks pretty good, though, huh? I chose this one because a.) it was sunny outside and b.) as I said yesterday, my boyfriend likes blues. He did compliment my Essence Underwater from yesterday, but I kind of hated it by the end of twelve hours so it had to go. Just like Hi-Res, Cyberspace took two coats to look okay. I probably could have used three but I was in a rush. Boyfriend was basically DANGLING Chipotle in front of me trying to get me to move faster, but when I am sleep and polish-deprived I am slow-going. I think I like Hi-Res better than this one, and I have only tried two. Cyberspace is still nice, though. It's a pretty soft blue.
Last week I got two of those mood nail polishes from Claire's when I went to the mall. Ange-Marie has been asking me to let her know how they work, so yesterday I did a little experiment.
Here are the two polishes I got, swatched on fake nails, in their natural states. They look purple and blue-toned gray in the bottles, respectively. The purple has really pretty glitter in it.
What I did was put two coats of each polish on two fake nails. Then I took a hair dryer to them. Literally THE SECOND the heat hit the polish they changed.
Here is the formerly purple polish (and a bit of cat hair--sorry) after being blasted by a very small amount of heat.
Here it is changing back to purple.
And here is the formerly gray polish, now a yellow-y orange.
And here it is changing back to gray.
I haven't tried these on my nails yet, but I'm willing to bet that they do work--if you were to put your hand in a patch of sunlight for a little bit, if you were working out, if you were in an uncomfortably warm room...etc. I do not exaggerate when I say that as soon as heat hit these they changed. So...yeah! I guess I would call them a semi-success. I'm not sure when I'll actually get around to wearing them on my nails, but I hope this will do for now.
Okay, Boyfriend and I are off to see Shutter Island soon. I told you guys that I read the book recently, so I'm pretty psyched for the movie. Plus I love me some Leo ;) Delicious, delicious man candy...a good way to kick off the weekend.
