To keep my spirits up I decided to cover my nails it real gold leaf. Because if there's one thing that's necessary in life, it's that. The base of this is Sinful Colors Leap Flog (yes, Flog; I don't know what the people at Sinful were smoking when they typed out the final copy of this label. Unless it's a pun I totally don't get. In which case, good work, Sinful. Good work), which came out this past summer. It's a really nice sort of blue-based evergreen color. Like a blue spruce. It never looks dark enough to be mistaken for anything but green, even in super low light, so that's great. The formula was wonderful. I used two coats. Over Leap Flog I did two coats of OPI The Man With the Golden Gun. I think it looks pretty great. I was writing about a fresco for one of my classes, which I mentioned a couple posts ago, and one of the textiles in it looks like this:
So I may have been subconsciously influenced by this nice green brocaded velvet. Either way, it looks pretty holiday-ish to me. I'm happy with my nails.
I kind of quit drinking coffee at all this past week and decided to just go with tea, and I'm wondering if that's contributing to how lackluster I'm feeling. Either that or I'm getting sick. I don't know. Earl Grey, although my favorite tea of all time, is just not giving me the kick I need. Wish me luck today, though. I have a final in my photography class that I feel totally unprepared for. But, if there's one thing that being in school so long has taught me, it's that no matter how prepared for a test I actually am, I always feel completely unprepared. So maybe it'll be okay.
Until next time.
