I did two coats of Sunday Funday on my pointer and pinky finger (also my ring, middle, and pinky on the other hand). Then I took Shimmer Polish Linna, which is a predominantly green glitter embellished with red, silver, gold, and blue glitter, and used three coats on its own on my middle and ring finger (and ring and thumb on the other hand). Oh, and then I also threw some glitter down by my cuticles. It's not exactly a gradient because I only did one layer, but it looks neat. The whole effect actually looks better in the shade than in the sun, at least in photos. I think in the sun it's too blingy and the camera didn't like it.
The formula on the China Glaze was great. Very easy to work with and very pigmented. Linna was also easy to work with, and it built up to a decent opacity on its own. I was really pleased with this combination! I couldn't stop staring at my hands yesterday. Sadly Sunday Funday chipped on my thumb pretty quickly, so I think this manicure isn't long for this world.
The other day (Tuesday) I was working on a paper (and I mean, we're talking nascent stages) when my computer was like, hey girl, you should probably plug me in. I have six minutes left. So I got my charger, plugged it in, and...nothing. I tried another outlet. Still nothing. So my power cord died. I was "stuck" not working on anything all night because I didn't have my computer available, so Tuesday was kind of a wash. Then yesterday I woke up and went to the Apple Store for a new cord. I meant to do work after that, but I walked through Central Park instead. I walked through Central Park for three hours. I think I'm just totally checked out, guys. Somewhere along the line I decided that my mental health was more important than my academics. And I should have realized that long, long ago. I did come home late in the afternoon and work on my medieval paper for a few hours, but my dedication waned, and here I am writing this blog post instead. I don't know how to motivate myself to do everything I have to do. I know why I'm so apathetic, but it's not time for me to divulge this to you all yet. That will come in June when plans are more solid. But for now...yikes. I'm in trouble.
But I took this picture yesterday and I kind of like it.
It was such a nice day. Just barely jacket weather. I set a goal for myself that by Sunday I will be totally done with my medieval paper (edited, footnotes formatted, bibliography done, images formatted). That way I can basically totally forget about one class. Maybe I'll feel better about it things then if I feel like I have less to do instead of having all these plates spinning at the same time. Yeah, we'll go with that.
Now I'm rambling so I'm out. I hope you guys are having nice weather where you are, too.
