Zoya Kelly and China Glaze White Cap: Layered

Hey kittens.  Feeling kind of antsy that I haven't updated since last week, so here's a little something to keep me on your minds ;)







Sadly I wasn't too into Zoya Kelly when I wore it last week, and since Zoyas wear like crap on me, I slapped some China Glaze White Cap over it on the second day.  And it gave me an immediate nail polish boner [NPB].  Super pretty, super easy.  I didn't even put topcoat on and it's really shiny and lovely.  In the interest of full disclosure, I wore OPI Lincoln Park After Dark all week this week.  I took it off today and replaced it with OPI Fiercely Fiona, which I've wanted to wear ever since swatches of China Glaze Electric Pineapple started showing up.  Fiercely Fiona looks terrible on me but I love it anyway.  You can see me wearing it here.

And because I promised pictures of the Detroit Institute of Arts, here are some. 



Me with Nocturne in Black and Gold by Whistler.  A painting I've longed to see for ages.  I looked a hot mess that day because I'd gotten up at 6 after sleeping...for not a long time.  Ew.


Whistler's self-portrait:  original nineteenth century badass.

That's all.  I'll throw up a post next week, I promise.  I'm just so busy.

  4. jaljen, I think it might be a common misconception that Whistler was British (although I think the British kind of claim him as their own). He is part of my triumvirate of favorite American artists--Whistler, Eakins, Homer. Personal tidbit: when I started grad school I knew that I would be an Americanist, but I thought I'd focus on the early twentieth century. I fell totally in love with Winslow Homer while doing research on another American artist, Eastman Johnson, and ever since then I've become totally enamored of nineteenth century American art. And there's your TMI for the day.

  5. omg, that is so crazy! I thought you were from...now around Detroit!
    I go to school at Wayne State (which is in Detroit) and the DIA is literally a 15min walk from my dorm!

  6. You are adorable. In these pics, you resemble Chloe Sevigny, whom I like very much. Zoyas wear like rubbish on me too, but I find I have better luck with their newer cremes than I do with their glass flecks.

  7. faerieberry, I get the Chloe Sevigny lookalike thing a lot. Would that I were that thin.

  8. I've been wondering lately what Fiercely Fiona/Electric Pineapple would look like with some white cap over it. Could you show it? I think it might look pretty sweet.

  9. I'm also an art history student obsessed with nail polish and love love love Whistler. I have done countless projects on Nocturne in Black and Gold. Might be a little late but I am so glad I saw this post. Loving the White Cap also.

  11. Not only is it a strong idea to choose a gay sizegenetics from an agency because you get to see the person who will probably be giving you the sizegenetics, yet you also get to actually feel safer as soon as you use a remarkably site. These agencies only hire the correct so you never need to worry about someone doing anything harmful for you personally, robbing you or anything else after you use an agency for one male sizegenetics. Such just isn't the case should you just get an ad out of your respective paper and hire someone. You have a guarantee of safety every time you use a qualified agency that specializes in male sizegeneticss.
