oh yeah, and I didn't have the bottle with me when I actually took the photos, so that is my gym lock I'm holding
also some reddish lips, blue eyeliner, and a navy and white shirt for opening day...
IT'S BASEBALL SEASON AGAIN, HURRAH INDIANS!!!
Car Paint Purple is an indigo creme. I think. At least that's how it looks in the bottle. Here it pretty much just looks dark blue. I tried to coax out the purple tones by holding my purple padlock, but it didn't really work. The formula was nice and easy to work with, and I only needed two coats. The brush was different than I remember H&M polishes being; it was a bit wider and flatter, but easy to control nonetheless. Unfortunately this color didn't last long on me at all. It may have been because I have been washing my hands really often, but I'm not sure. I basically have had to accept that polishes just do not last on me no matter what base/topcoat I decide to use. You know which polishes really agreed with my body chemistry? $OPI. THANKS FOR NOT EXISTING ANYMORE, $OPI. Sigh.
Okay, that's all for me today. There will definitely be two other posts this week; I'm sorry things have been so sparse lately! I've been trying to balance my personal life/work/gym schedules and I haven't quite found a good equilibrium. But soon I will and all will be well. Also, today would have been my grandmother's 91st birthday. I can't believe a year has passed so quickly since I last wrote about her last birthday party. I still miss her every single day. If you want to read about her, for a while I did a series called The Tess Collection because I have all of her old nail polish. The series became difficult for me to maintain after I moved for a variety of reasons, but people seemed to like those posts. And I certainly enjoyed sharing them. Anyway, I'll be thinking about my grandma all day today. Because she was such a special lady.
Happy Monday and happy April 7th.
