I got the aptly named Jawbreaker about a year ago from Five Below. Originally I got it as a sort of substitute for China Glaze It's a Trap-eze, which I just never got around to picking up. But really they're not that much alike at all...and at least in photos, I like Jawbreaker way better. This polish is a variety of glitters in a sheer, milky white base. The formula is fine and easy to work with; here I did three coats, but I think if you want it to be totally opaque it's probably a good idea to do four. It's wearing exceptionally well on me with Seche. Today will be its fourth day, and not a chip in sight. I honestly have no idea if this is still available...I haven't been to a Five Below in quite a while. I tried to run into one last night, but I didn't make it before it closed at 9.
So, can we talk about weird weather for a minute? Last night at almost 6pm it was only 62 degrees. It's the middle of July. I don't understand this. We'd better have a warm fall or I'm just going to move south because this is total crap.
Also, last night my mom and I did this Wine and Canvas thing where we went to a bar, drank some wine, and learned how to paint a painting of fireflies on a pond. It was one of those things where everyone did the same painting, but everyone's also looked a little different. Here's mine:
While I was doing it I kind of thought it looked shitty, but once I finished it I thought it looked pretty nice. Because I'm an art historian a lot of people--outside of my field, at least--assume that I have some sort of artistic inclination. The answer is that I absolutely do not. I am not a visually creative person at all. So, I was happy to attend this event where someone told me exactly what to do in easily understandable steps and I walked away with a presentable finished product. Anyway, I think Wine and Canvas does events like these all over the place, so I definitely recommend checking it out. It's pretty fun and low pressure. Plus, wine.
Okay, that's all for today. I hope you're all doing well and that it's not 62 degrees in July where you are (if you're in the northern hemisphere, anyway). Until next time!
