I've been wearing Dead Calm since Monday evening. My presentation was the next day and so I chose my nail color based on name. Dead Calm had been on my list of lemmings ever since I saw it on The Polish Addict a couple years ago. When I heard there would be another sale it was number one on my list. I busted it out while I was watching a Frank Lloyd Wright documentary on Netflix.
This is a perfect blue polish. I don't even like wearing blue polishes, but I feel like I could wear this one forever. I've heard a lot of people say that it has perfect one-coat application. It didn't for me. I feel like I'm pretty good at applying nail polish by now, so I don't want to say, "maybe if I had been more careful I could have gotten away with one coat." I was pretty careful, and I still needed two on most nails to cover bald patches. That's not to say that this didn't apply beautifully. It definitely did. What you see in the pictures is two coats of Dead Calm and one coat of Gelous. I don't know why I used Gelous. I ended up getting sheet marks on my right hand, but the polish is so dark that it's barely noticeable. I think I'll keep this on for a little while longer.
Here's a picture I took out my kitchen window. This morning when I got out of bed and meandered to the coffee pot I looked out the window and thought, oh how pretty. Look at the little flakes of snow. As the day wore on, however, the snow got worse and worse. Big fat flakes are still falling now. I haven't gone grocery shopping in...well, a while, so I know I'll have to brave the outdoors to get myself something. Plus I'm out of honey. And peppermint mocha creamer (which is, by the way, possibly the best invention of all time).
I can't seem to make myself finish my paper. I finished a take-home final this morning and now all I have left to do is my methodology paper, but...ugh. I'm so sick of looking at it. It's over the page limit already. I just printed it out to edit it and it's quite a weighty little tome. I think I'll take a break now and watch the snow. It hasn't lost its novelty yet.
