First I did two coats of OPI Barre My Soul, then one coat of
Glimmer Gilded, then one more of Barre My Soul. Now, if it was sunny (which it may never be again, who knows) you would be able to see the lovely golden/iridescent glitter in Glimmer Gilded. I can still see it in real life, but in photos it's harder to see. The red glitter is really noticeable, though, and I like the effect that Barre My Soul gave it. I don't think I have to tell you that this OPI is basically the end-all-be-all of jelly sheers. Oh, it's just the best. Its only issue is that it seems to flood my cuticles a little every time I use it, but I don't caaaaaaaaaare.
There is not much other news here. Ben is on a long trip so I'm by myself. And I'm on a strict diet so I want to kick almost everyone I come in contact with. I am at my Scary Weight, which is the exact same weight, to the pound, that I was at last time I decided I was a fatass (at the end of last January). Enter diet. Right before Christmas probably wasn't the best time to decide to diet, but I'm doing it. I will feel much better 12 pounds from now, and I will keep telling myself that every time I feel like I need to eat a cookie or have a peppermint mocha (even a skinny one, because those aren't great for you either--SADLY). Other than that, I have been Christmas-ing.
Got a tree for my parents' house with my dad, which is our tradition. That day it was like 20 degrees out (not too bad), but with windchill it was roughly negative A MILLION, so we picked pretty much the first tree we saw, tied it to the roof, and got the hell out of dodge. But I made him take this picture of me first. Those are my I-Mean-Buisness boots.
Ben and I watched Home Alone and Home Alone 2 while I tried to avoid wrapping the cat. It's funny; during my first marathon present wrapping session Remy stayed totally away from me. He sat in his cat tree, which you can see above my hat, and supervised me. But then on this particular day when I brought the paper out I couldn't keep him away. He's a little weirdo.
That's all for today. I'll try to have another post for you later this week! I'm still trying to decide what to do for Christmas nails, so if anyone has any suggestions, come at me.
