Good morning everyone! It's Saturday! Yaaaaay! This week went so quickly for me, probably because I had so much time to myself. Usually I don't like being alone at my house, but it has been kind of nice, I have to admit. The other day when I went to Rite-Aid they had the elusive Maybelline Minty and Sweetie Pie. Those are the two polishes that of course don't come on the regular polish display, but come on the makeup display. They were 40% off, plus there was a dollar coupon on the display, so they turned out, with tax, to be $1.68 apiece. There was one Minty, which I relinquished to my friend Amber, and I got Sweetie Pie (the next day I went to another Rite-Aid and got Minty; I just had to have it and I don't know why because I don't really like mint greens. I have a disease). So...here's Sweetie Pie!
Isn't it cute? It's totally cute! But...I have a few beefs with this polish. Everyone has talked about how difficult these polishes are to apply. Some people also seem to have gotten lumpy bottles. I've been lucky with the two I've tried--this one and Pie In the Sky--because neither one was lumpy. The brushes on these are terrible, though. They just don't spread out; they're stiff. This polish was really, really difficult to spread and get even. You can probably tell from the photos. But somehow at the same time it was easy to control once I got it where I wanted it--I did no cleanup here. I also kind of feel like it's difficult to tell that it's a peach unless you put it next to a true pink. Lastly, why is this one (along with Minty) so difficult to find? Why not put it on the polish display with the others? I don't understand, Maybelline.
You can stop reading now if you don't want to look at my adorable cat. The other night I was telling PerryPie about my cat Raven's house. He tipped over one box, shredded some cardboard with his claws, and then carried it into the box. It's his nest. Then the other day he somehow tipped over another box directly across from it. It's his kitty condo. If he trusts you, at LEAST once a day he will beckon you downstairs by meowing loudly from the basement. Then when you go down he goes into one box, makes sure you're looking at him, and then walks directly into the other box as if to say, "Hey, do you SEE THIS? I have one box, but I can walk from THAT BOX directly into ANOTHER BOX. Isn't this AMAZING?" He does this while purring loudly and rubbing against his boxes lovingly. I took a photo series. They're not very good pictures, but they're cute.
"Look! This is my first box!"
"Ohhh I love my box PURR PURR"
"Wait, but I love this box too!!!"
"LOOK NOW I'M IN A TOTALLY DIFFERENT BOX! You're not laughing at me, are you?"
"But I didn't forget about my first box! I love them both SO FREAKING MUCH PURR PURR"
Your daily dose of adorable. Sorry for the picture spam. He's just too funny. SO...who has been able to find the "harder to find" Maybelline Sweet Thing polishes (Minty and Sweetie Pie)? Did anyone get these lumpy bottles I've heard about? Curious!
