(sorry, no sun!)
Cute As A Button, which I've shown once before, was released a couple springs ago along with Chubby Cheeks, which is one of my favorite Essie names. This one is a pink-leaning coral that really is kind of a chameleon. Depending on the light it can look either hot pink or coral. This basically means that sometimes I really like this polish and sometimes I hate it because hot pink isn't, and never will be, my jam. I found the formula to be a little thick, but workable. This is three coats. It's pretty, but it's not my favorite coral. It does have a nice squishy, almost jelly look to it, though.
Something that I do really like about Cute As A Button is that it almost matches one of my all time favorite lipsticks! MAC Vegas Volt!
See what I'm talking about!? ...you think I'm crazy, don't you? Crazy AWESOME. Anyway...
Right after I put this post up I'm going to go turn in my final portfolio for my last class, hear a dissertation prospectus pitch, and then I'm done with this semester. Yesterday I celebrated my first day of not really having any academic obligations by staying in bed until 1 and then having breakfast for lunch with my boyfriend. Then I iTunes-rentined Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and watched it alone in my underwear. This either makes me a sad lonely hermit or kind of a rockstar. Regardless, it was wonderful. Today I have no idea what I'll do after I drop my portfolio off. Finishing my first year of graduate school seems like a big deal, but I don't know how to celebrate.
I was thinking of going to buy MAC Ever Hip because it re-releases today with the Fashion Flower collection, but one of my besties, Angela, is going to send me a tube (thank you Angela!). She can get to her MAC in the morning and I can't, and I'm afraid it'll sell out before I get my paws on one. Barring a MAC shopping spree, there's really nothing else I want to do but drink a cup of really good coffee. And, actually, walk around the art museum. There's nothing like staring at beautiful paintings and thinking, "HA! I am not currently obliged to write about you!"
That's all for today. The week is almost over, hooray! What do you guys think about Essie Cute As A Button? Cute enough for you? Too pink? Too orange? Too blah? Spill.
