That lip color is one of the new Revlon ColorBurst Matte Balms called Striking. Listen, if you guys like mattes you need to get these. I've read mixed reviews on them being "patchy" but they actually take very little effort to apply and they're brilliant. If you liked the Revlon Kissable Balm Stains (which are the BEST), then you'll like these too.
As with several of my other "gradients," this shit looks better from far away. I'm okay with that, though! It's festive enough. The two colors I used were OPI Jinx (my first textured polish and far and away my favorite textured polish) and Sinful Colors Emerald Envy, which is part of the new Crystal Crushes collection, all textured polishes as well. Emerald Envy is a very pretty bright green with gold glitter. When I first saw it in the store I thought it looked more like a St. Patrick's Day green, but paired with Jinx I think it reads Christmas.
I have a few sads about the holidays. Because my grandma isn't here. I've been thinking about her a lot lately. But I'm sort of excited, too. I love Christmas and I love being able to give gifts and see friends. We had some people over last Saturday to wear ugly sweaters and watch Christmas Vacation, so that was nice. I made eggnog for the first time, wore a Santa hat, and generally had a fun time. So yeah, I'm looking forward to having more times like that in the coming weeks.
To end, here's Remy. Because he's the best.
Oh, also, I just watched the "mid-season finale" of The Walking Dead, and holy hell. The season finally got kind of decent, amirite? I just wish The Governor had kept his apocalypse hair and beard, because the weird haircut they always give him makes him look like a mental patient (not to mention the eye patch).
Somehow this post went from Christmas nails to Christmas sweaters to kittens to zombies. I don't know how that happened. So. I'm out.
