I’m a sucker for white nails. Have been since I was a wee polish geek in the 90s. There is an obvious artificial quality them that I just love. Solitaire is a swell new take.
I keep finding myself planning a “favorite pins” post. As such, it seems far easier to just spam up the blog with a link to my Pinterest boards. I’m lazy. I freely admit this.
I’m embarrassingly addicted to Pinterest. Crafts! Clothes! Recipes! Stuff! Things! ALL THE THINGS!
I mitigate that, in theory, by reminding myself how helpful Pinterest was in creating (private)* boards to develop a wedding aesthetic. I found everything from my shoes to my clutch to my dress — and even, almost creepily, pins of my engagement ring, which is an antique nabbed from a certain website by my clever fiancé — from assorted pins and boards.
My profile is here, should you be inclined to follow.
I’m also on Polyvore, though I do not publish sets as often as I did pre- grad school graduation. I blame that on a lesser need for procrastination fodder, along with a hefty dose of self-preservation: I became too accustomed to buying what I assembled in far too many cases.
*If you are curious about the wedding bits, message me and I will add you to the hidden boards.
I never expected to own an orange polish — I don’t really care for the color — but this post from PolishAlcoholic changed my mind.
Jinx is a beautifully vibrant orange/coral with gold shimmer, warmer and more saturated than my pictures suggest. Picture a sunset in a bottle. That’s closer to it.
I just restocked some supplies — I am going to add a few new colors to the shop for ye olde fundraising — and discovered two nifty things.
1) Glitter Unique has a SLEW of new shapes, finishes, sizes, and pigments. A screencap was not nearly sufficient to capture it:
2) TKB is offering close-out pricing on 12ml and 13ml bottles. They also now have matte pigments.
Bright Night is the second of three colors I picked up from the Kaleidoscope Collection, all of which I nabbed from Head2Toe Beauty. It is aptly named; it is so saturated and bright, I had to experiment with lighting to get it to translate to pictures.
I know. I should suck it up and use Adobe Lightroom. I’m lazy.
My makeup collection pales — no pun intended — in comparison to my polish collection. Hell, it pales in comparison to the vast and well-rounded collections of many of my friends.
I should keep this picture on my phone to quell impulse buys. I certainly have more than enough makeup for a lazy chick who skates by most days with a bit of powder and mascara.
I should have bolded lazy.
And underlined it.
