Okay now, listen to me. Er, well, you can't hear me. So read this carefully: this polish has one of the best formulas I have ever used. Yes, it's true. I've shelled out the big bucks for Chanel and Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes, and the formula on this little guy is as good as those. Pretty much a one-coater with careful application. Also, I am absolutely in love with this color. It's a bit grayer and dustier than these photos are showing, and it reminds me a lot of one of the Chanel jeans colors. Blue Boy? Blue Boy looks more grayed out. But I'll never know because I won't be buying that Chanel. Maybe one of you guys can let me know. Here is what I do know: I paid $1.99 for this amazing little polish and it has one of the best formulas in my stash. It's a gorgeous creme that seems like it'll be perfect for every season. I call this a win.
Now, life stuff. More specifically, hair stuff. I am ONE OF THOSE GIRLS that doesn't really have a hair routine. I like to wear it long and in Heidi braids and in braided up-dos and in high ballerina-esque buns. But my haircut had been the same for ten years. In a decade I hadn't changed my hair. Here's a picture I've posted before that's pretty indicative of Steff-hair.
I'd been toying with the idea of bangs for quite some time. The guy I had been dating for the past couple years was vehemently against the idea, so I held off and kept my hair the same. The other day I went to go get my bi-annual haircut, sat down in the chair, and said to my new stylist (Mike!), "Do you think I would look stupid with bangs? Tell me the truth." He toyed around with my hair for a while and then said they would look great on me. So I said, "Do whatever you want." I am going to show you several photographs of MY NEW HAIR because I want OPINIONS.

This is a pretty big change for me. They're not those severe straight-across-y bangs; I can still get them out of my face. But still, super different. So, what do you think? Everyone I've talked to likes them. Ben is crazy about them. And yes, I'm happy with them. I know that if I get sick of them I can just twist them back and pin them. But I'm pretty insecure about them nonetheless. They're just so...different.
Also, funny side note. I thought to myself earlier, "I really need to blog my bangs;" I thought it would be funny if "blog my bangs" became some sort of a cliche. Like instead of "minding my own business" it was "blogging my bangs." I was just SITTING THERE, bloggin' my bangs... No? Okay, maybe it's just me. But if we could get something started there I'd be pretty excited.
So that's it. New hair and a perfect blue drug store polish. I'm telling you, run, do not walk to Walgreens and buy that blue. It's calling out to you.
