It's Friday!!!! I actually get to say that with exclamation points this week because I'm not working at all this weekend! I work tonight and then that's it until Monday! Yesterday I had an absolutely fantastic day. It was like 68 degrees and sunny. Boyfriend and I went out and about, walking around, had lunch together, etc. When we got home we just sat on the porch together in the sun. It was divine. Today is not such a pretty day, but I wanted to use a polish to capture the spirit of yesterday.
I located my Maybelline Sweet Thing polishes and this is Pie in the Sky. I absolutely freaking adore this color. It is now my second favorite blue, behind Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue. I have read that a lot of people had application problems with these. My favorite was when I read in a blog (I'm not sure which one or else I would totally credit it) that using these polishes was like painting with curdled milk. HA. Well, my bottle of Pie in the Sky was not that bad. It was a three-coater because it was kind of streaky, but that's kind of to be expected with pastels. Plus each coat dries in like a minute so it's not too much of a hassle. This is the color that the model is wearing on the display. I feel like when models are wearing a color in an advertisement, the actual polish rarely looks the same in reality. This one looks the same--it just looks awesome. I love it. Here's the display on Nouveau Cheap, in case you haven't run across these yet and you wanna see.
My only complaint about this polish is the brush. It's a little wide, which is good, but the brush is really stiff and not...pliable. I dunno. It's just difficult to spread the polish in smooth strokes. It's not that big a deal if you're patient and I think the results are worth it. I actually want a back-up bottle of this, and I never want back-up bottles of anything. The only back-up I own is China Glaze Wagon Trail. Such is my love for Pie in the Sky. I showed boyfriend my nails and he declared they look "cute." Such is the power of blue.
So here's what I did yesterday afternoon...
I was amused by these bubbles for...longer than I'd care to admit. They were thirty four cents. Worth it. This is not a fashion blog, but in the interest of full disclosure I will tell you-- sunnies: H&M 2009 ($12.95), "dress": H&M ($12.95), tights: Target ($14), shoes: Payless 2009 ($22.95). If it looks like the dress is really short and that I could flash the world at any moment, it's true. I think this might be a tunic meant to be worn with either opaque leggings or just pants. I am wearing it as a dress. My boyfriend picked it out, actually. He insisted that I wear it yesterday because it was warm. I just had to try not to raise my arms or bend over. CONSTANT. VIGILANCE.
