XOX Betsey is a total winner. I put it on and knew that I would need a full-sized bottle. It's a pinky opaque nude, and I see a drop of blue in it as well. I love it. It was perfect in two coats, even with the tiny mini brush on the tiny mini bottle. After I put this one on I was trying to think of a dupe I may have for it. OPI Miso Happy With This Color seems like it may be too red, while OPI Let Them Eat Rice Cake seems like it might not be red enough. Zoya Kennedy might be a contender. I'm going to have to check out the dupe status before I go splurge on a full-sized bottle of this one. That's assuming these are even still at Sephora. I feel totally out of the nail polish loop.
Today marks the day when I need to get my ass in gear re: museum work. My boyfriend had a three-day weekend, and we spent every minute of it together. I went to my third car show of the summer (it was hot and crowded and there were cars and also bugs), watched The Untouchables (yay), hung out with some of his friends, had dinner with my parents and grandmother for Father's Day, finished Six Feet Under with him, started Harper's Island with him, and went to an Indians game with him and another couple. It feels so good to just relax, hold hands, and do stuff. It feels like for the past year or so I was struggling to be happy, and now I know what happy feels like. I want to grab that feeling and hold onto it, and that's my challenge these days. But so far I'm doing pretty well. My only lament is that my best friend moved to Boston. It feels so weird to not text her and say, "I'm on my way over, let's order Chinese," or "I'll meet you at Starbucks in 15 minutes." Instead it's "what'd you do today?" But I'm getting used to it.
So, can anyone think of a dupe for $OPI XOX Betsey? If you can, please let me know so I don't go spend $9 on this polish. 'Cause I wanna. 'Cause I love it.
