AND...the elusive animal that I like to call: my right hand
I mean, it doesn't look AMAZING, but it looks PRETTY GREAT for my first time trying this. Here are the polishes I used:
The base is OPI My Vampire is Buff (last seen here), the metallic dots are Funky Fingers Pink Pixels (courtesy of Rach and last seen here, during my finals frenzy of last semester), and NYC Black Lace. This might need very little explanation, but I'll tell you how I did this anyway. I started off with two and a half coats of the OPI. Some nails needed a third, hence the "and a half." Then, I used a bent bobby pin to dot on the Funky Fingers in rather asymmetric blobs. The nice thing about this is that it doesn't have to be perfect. Lastly, I used the black and a little paint brush to trace around the dots on either side and put random splotches on the empty spaces because HORROR VACUI. I let it dry for a while and then topped it off with a thick coat of Seche.
With leopard jeans and leopard plushie from the my trip to the Columbus Zoo in January. Ben (and also my parents) will readily tell you that I have "TOO MANY STUFFED ANIMALS," but I can't help myself. They are my preferred souvenir and have been since I was a little girl.
See? What a pal.
Today I have my last exam (that I feel completely unprepared for) around 4:15. Last night I was feeling kind of like
But this morning I'm kind of all
So I don't even know, you guys.
But after this bitch is over I plan to go downtown and have SEVERAL drinks.
I still have one paper left to finish, and it remains to be seen whether or not I'll finish it before I leave for CLE Wednesday night. I'll try my best. It's not due until the 31st, but it would be nice to turn in before I go. My friend Chelsea is getting married on Thursday and I'm going back for the wedding/for my family's Memorial Day festivities at the lake house. My best friend Sam flies in from Boston on Friday night, and we'll roadtrip with Ben down to the lake. To say I'm looking forward to it would be an understatement. I'm looking forward to it so much that I've actually been trying not to think about it because it's distracting. I get distracted enough as it is anyway. Oh, and because I subjected you guys to my German woes, I can now proudly tell you that I got an A- in the class. Take that, Freud.
Okay, wish me luck. I'll probably study all the way up to the exam today and then just hope that intelligible things spill out of my brain-parts. And, of course, there will be much coffee.
