It's raining today. Good thing I took my pictures of Nubar Wildlife yesterday ;) I knew that the sparse sunlight I had yesterday morning was going to be the last sunshine for a few days. Since Nubar is a brand that's completely new to me, I'll give my thoughts about a few things after I show you a couple pictures. I had trouble photographing how awesome this polish truly is, so...just know that however awesome you think it is, it's more awesome.
Phew. The formula on this was impeccable. I did two thin coats and that's all it needed. Wildlife is a true duochrome; sometimes it looks mossy green, sometimes it looks pinky copper, and sometimes it looks both. The color reminds me of fall--leaves changing from green to red and then brown. It also reminds me of spring--sad brown grass turning green, sprouts shooting up through the dirt. I really like the shape of the bottles. Square bottles are my favorite, as I've said before, but there's something about the Nubar bottles that is aesthetically pleasing. The polishes are B3F and cruelty free, a fact that is adorably advertised on the back of the bottle.
Look at that little bunny! Cruelty free, Mr. Bunny, yay!
The brush is a great size for my tiny stubby nails and the cap is really comfortable to hold while painting. The bottles have a pleasant weight to them, and I'm sure that they would look great lined up in a row of say, twenty, on my dresser ;) Something to aspire to! I'm so, so glad I chose this polish. I could choose two, and I knew immediately this would be one of them. It's so unique. It looks super sparkly in the sun, but the duochrome effect is clear in any light.
Remember the other day how I told you that I went a bit insane trying to find a Liberty of London dress at three different Targets? Well, Saturday morning I decided I needed some new bedding. In my defense, I had been looking for new bedding for a while and one of the Liberty of London patterns looks like it was literally made to be put in my room. This time I only had to go to one Target. As soon as I put the new bedding on, Godzilla Cat Alley claimed it as her own. Seriously. She would not move for a good two hours, and she was rolling all over the bed as if to say, "See this comforter? It's MINE NOW BITCH."
You've got to admit it looks cute with my ridiculously bright green walls and pink and orange curtains. I like this picture because Alley kind of looks like one of the stuffed animals.
"O hai Steff. If you are pleasant to me I may even let you sleep here later."
One last thing. Initially I wasn't going to write anything about this because I figured nobody wanted to hear about my personal problems, but then I remembered that this is my blog, so...my personal problems are pertinent. This morning I woke up to my mom pounding on my bedroom door. My grandma, who is 86 and turning 87 in a matter of days, was having chest pains. My mom said she was taking her to the emergency room. I started getting out of bed to go with them, but there are some repairmen coming today to look at a broken window that we have. You know how repairmen come within a window between like 8 and 2? Yeah. So someone has to be at home to let them in. I'm stuck here and I'm really worried. My grandma and I are really close and I think she must be scared :( If you guys could send some good thoughts our way I'd appreciate it...
Alright, until tomorrow. Thanks for reading.
