First thing's first: the winner of the Muppets Giveaway was a reader called Pam R. Her win has been confirmed via e-mail, so congratulations to her!
Starry Pink is a milky/sheer pink base full of hexagonal and regular small silver glitter. The first coat goes on pretty sheer, but the color eventually builds to what you see in the photos after three coats. It dries fast, too. I did two coats of topcoat to amp up the shine and make sure that the glitter would lie smoothly against my nails.
I can't really put my finger on why I love this one so much. I think it's because the pink looks a little...dirty? Kind of grayed out. Which, to me, makes this polish look kind of edgy even though it's...*shudder*...a glittery pink. Also I like how this looks with my pale skin. This is definitely a polish I'll be keeping around and reaching for all winter.
I had a pretty good weekend. Like I mentioned on Friday, I went to the last opening at the Carnegie Avenue location at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland. It was pretty great. Those things are always great people-watching. Plus there was a performance piece going on throughout the whole event which involved hobo-looking actors walking around wearing sandwich boards and yelling things like THE END IS NIGH. See?
Is there anything better on a snowy Friday night? I don't think so. You can see the snow on the poor guy's coat here. It started coming down in earnest around 9 and continued well into the night.
Saturday night my boyfriend and I went to our friend's opening. He's a painter. It was nice to see him having his paintings on display somewhere. Apparently he was also mentioned in the newspaper, but I didn't see it. A pretty big deal for him, though.
I'm also really into this right now:
I just started the second season. I never knew a PBS series could be so enthralling. And that Maggie Smith was so feisty.
Okay, that's it for today. Any other people obsessed with Downton Abbey, milky pink polishes or weird contemporary art?
