Hey guys. I'm slacking in the blog department. I'm sorry. My sleeping is completely screwed up, especially after last night when I decided around midnight that I'd stay up to get a new iPhone. Then around 4:30 I decided not to and passed out. Heh. Anyway. I'm showing you chipped nails because I never took a picture yesterday when they were un-chipped. I'm sorry.
Oh God, obscene chipped nails. I'm sorry. This is what my nails look like after a shift at Coffee Inc. I'm so rough on my hands. This is Milani In A Flash, which I think is new. I misplaced the bottle because I'm still sorting through my drug store polishes. Sorry about that. I picked this one up at CVS a couple days ago and it was on a new display. You never know with Milani, though. This could be new or this could be from last fall. It's a mystery. In A Flash had this amazing duochrome effect happening in the bottle. On the nail, not so much. I'm not a huge fan of this color. Pink and I just don't work together. Meh.
And now...for little Helmer. I tried my very best to put him together myself. I got about halfway there. I decided to hedge my bets and ask three men to put him together for me: my dad, my friend C, and my friend T. In the end one of them came through. I was sitting at Chipotle yesterday surfing MUA reviews when I got a text message from T: "Did you get Helmer put together yet?" I was ecstatic.
Helmer before help
That drawer is almost overflowing with drug store polish. And that shoebox on the right. It's the drug store pile that truly scares me.
And here is the man putting together things for me.
I kind of thought I was stupid because I couldn't figure out how to put together the damn thing, but T did yell, "What's wrong with you, Helmer?!" at least once, so I felt less stupid. I did completely mess up part of it that he had to take apart and fix. I might as well just not touch anything ever, right?
Here he is, all put together. With my kiwi collection on top. I love kiwi birds.
Drawer 1: Rescue Beauty Lounge, Chanel, Illamasqua, MAC (lipstick and a single polish), Nubar, special Steffie franken from Ange and lipstick. Too much lipstick.
Drawer 2: OPI
Drawer 3: Essie, Orly and Zoya
Drawer 4: China Glaze. This isn't all my China Glaze. My others are box sets (collections) and I like to keep them together. They'll be stored elsewhere, probably on top of Helmer.
I have two more drawers to fill with epic amounts of drug store polish. I don't know if everything will fit. I'm kind of scared. I'm scared that I'll need another Helmer, guys.
Alright, I'm out. Work soon. Tomorrow I'm going to the CCO with my friend Amber. I literally feel as though every shopping trip I've taken up to this point has been preparing me for tomorrow. CCO is apparently where discontinued makeup goes to die. And...I need it. NEED IT.
