Well, this morning I was all set to not paint my nails green. That's right. I don't really feel like explaining why St. Patrick's Day is not a big deal to me, so I just won't. I'm half Irish but you won't find me in a dark bar drinking green beer today or wearing four leaf clover-shaped sunglasses. That having been said, I was going to paint my nails a decidedly un-green color. But I caved. I caved because I saw this color in the sun, just glinting at me in the bottle.
This is Maybelline Glad To Be Green, and it was on drug store shelves for a hot minute back in the early autumn, part of the "Poptimistic" collection. I had never heard of it, and then one day I was out grocery shopping or something and I spotted a full display. Intrigued, I picked up the green. I haven't seen it anywhere since. A few people have blogged about it, but this collection didn't seem to make waves like the Sweet Thing collection is. It's a really, really pretty color. Although it's less brown than most olives, I'm still going to call it an olive green. It has gorgeous golden shimmer that really comes alive in the sun. I kind of feel like I should be going on a safari while wearing it. It applied really well in two thin coats and the dry time is really impressive (although I'm not sure that the fifty-second claim advertised on the bottle is entirely accurate). My only complaint about this polish is that it's a little bit too frosty for me to be in love with it. I'm definitely in like with it, though.
Yesterday I went shopping at H&M. I found a dress that I think I really like in the juniors department, which doesn't really happen very often. It's kind of plaid and it's really cute, but it's $40! I would show you a picture but in the only one I took of myself I'm weirdly contorted sideways. I couldn't decide whether or not to buy it so...I showed some restraint and didn't. I did, however, buy this:
Here we have Specimen 4. Just as a refresher, my other three giant animal rings are: Mr. Owl, Ricardo and Ruby. Specimen 4 is just a tiny butterfly ring. Yep, just a little guy.
Oh, did I say tiny? I meant RIDICULOUSLY GIGANTIC.
This is an adjustable ring, which I don't love. I like to buy a ring that's a size. I dunno why. Anyway, at its smallest it fits my middle finger. A fine thing, too, because...this needs to be worn on a middle finger or else its wings stick out too far and they impede your doing...absolutely anything with your hand. Specimen 4 is available in either silver or gold and costs about $6. There were a ton of them at my H&M, and I'm encouraging EVERYONE to go out and get one. Because it is RIDICULOUS.
So that's all for today. If you guys are planning on going out and about to celebrate, have fun and be safe :D I think I might go to Target today. Bestie Angela showed me some of the stationary from the Liberty of London collection and it's uber-cute. I might need it. K, over 'n out.
