It's funny how fast the day progresses when you stay in bed until noon. It's one of those days, you guys. I considered not even getting out of bed but I figured that was just way too unhealthy and emo. Instead I'm stealing internet at a coffee shop and listening to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog while I post. I've been in a total polish slump lately. I always want to wear the same one. I did, however, muster up the effort it took to swatch some of the new Wet n Wild Craze shimmers I found over dark blue. First, here's the blue.
This is Wet n Wild Craze Nocturnal, a release I'm sure we all remember from last summer. It's totally gorgeous, an inky blue-black that reminds me of that annoying stain you inevitably get on your white purse when your stupid Bic pen explodes at the bottom of it for no reason. I wanted to use black as the base for the shimmers, but I couldn't find mine. That's right, I own only one, sad, half-empty (half-full?) bottle of black nail polish. Isn't that terrible? Does anyone have any suggestions for an awesome one-coat black that isn't Chanel or super high-end? Wet n Wild seems like the obvious option.
Here are some of the shimmers that I've already shown you over Nocturnal. Thumb to pinky we have: Bora Bora, Kauai, Sumatra, Cozumel and Barbados.
I have posted on all of these shimmers previously except for Bora Bora (and you can click on the linked names above to take you to those posts). Funnily enough, it turned out that I liked Bora Bora the best over the blue, so my left hand looks all skittles-y and my right hand is just Nocturnal and Bora Bora. I doubt anyone will notice. I think that Kauai and Sumatra look super similar over a dark color, so if you're going to buy these little guys for layering you can probably just pick one of those to take home with you.
So, I said that I've felt like wearing the same polish over and over again. I'm not kidding. And here it is.
I've shown this one to you before, about two months ago. It's China Glaze Cherry Pie from the Summer Days collection. I had been lemming it for a while and I finally ran into it on clearance at Sally's. Oh, unspeakable joy. Seriously, every day this week except one I have redone my nails with Cherry Pie after swatchin' for the blog. The day I didn't was the day I wore Diddy Mow. I probably would have kept Diddy Mow on for longer but it chipped and peeled on me after a night at work. Oh well. Anyway, Cherry Pie (which always reminds me of Paparazzi--"loving you is cherry pie"--yikes) is incredible and I can't get enough of it. I'm so glad I have it. Its sparkle is out of control in sunlight. It makes me happy.
I don't want to depress anyone so I won't give you too many of my life details, but suffice it to say that I am very unhappy right now. Something weird happened with my scholarship to grad school and I haven't really been able to get ahold of anyone to ask questions. My job is kind of ridiculous right now and all of my inter-personal relationships are slowly being shot to shit, helped along a lot by me (ie, everything that's going on right now in that department is my fault). Do you ever have those moments where you're in the middle of a situation and you know--I mean, you just know--that you have to get out? But you can't? My name is Stephanie and I have a problem.
But you know what helps? China Glaze Cherry Pie. I'm going to go put it back on now.
