Yesterdays notd: Chinga Glaze Rodeo Fanatic. Well, don’t really know if I can call it a notd, because I only did one hand, heh. Just didn’t feel like doing the other for some reason.

I took a kind of cool picture of myself yesterday, I like the mirror effect. For therapeutic reasons, I will show it to you. Maybe I’ll tell you about my self image some day, but I’ll leave it for now.

Don’t have much more to say. Still not very chatty I guess. Been feeling a little bit down, or, tired maybe. But tomorrow I will actually do something outside of my apartment, maybe it’ll cheer me up a bit.

Chromium… green?

Today I wanted to wear one of the polishes I got yesterday. I had a hard time deciding, and when I was down to 3 to choose from, I started do google swatches of those to see how they looked on the nails. One of them were LA Girl Metal Chromium Green. Huh? Couldn’t find a single swatch! We can’t have that, can we, so the choice for my notd was pretty simple, because someone needs to put a pic of it out on the world wide web (hehe)! (perhaps there already are, but I just can’t find them)

No… wait… What? Didn’t I say chromium green? Yep, I did. And I promise you that it is green. My camera just happens to hate green, apparently. So, here’s a crazy color corrected pic that shows the real green color.

Even though my camera doesn’t like it, I do. Don’t love it, but like it, enough to want some more from the metal collection. Application was easy, you can get away with two coats, but I did three, plus top coat.

insomnia

Well this sure is something different. I still can not sleep. My brain and body are apparently on speed and just can’t cool down. I hope I will get tired soon. wantz to zleep.

Ok, onto something more interesting! This is yesterdays notd; color club – revvvolution. A black/grey holo. Amazing!

For some reason my camera was very forgiving yesterday, because my cuticles are in a really bad shape, and I only have myself to blame. But it doesn’t really show. I did something stupid. I read somewhere that you could cut your cuticles (but it was bad to do it). I didn’t know you could cut them. So I thought for myself “That sounds really stupid. Why would you ever do something like that?… I have to try it.” So I did. No catastrophes though, but my cuticles aren’t happy. I’m taking good care of them now.

NOTD: Diamond Cosmetics – Fiery Coral

This is my NOTD, Diamond Cosmetics – Fiery Coral. It feels very summerish. This one has tiny tiny glitters in pink/red, blue, and gold, which makes it quite interesting.

Now I’m off to take a walk in the sun, trying to get my sickly pale skin some D-vitamin!

NOTD: Diamond Cosmetics – Hot Summer Pink

This one eats top coat for breakfast.

E.L.F

Ok, I did it. I ordered from elf. I didn’t want to. But it was soo cheeaap ;( They had 2 colors I wanted, and since buying only 2 felt silly, I bought 6. 2 I wanted, 2 I kind of wanted, perhaps, and black and white. I must say I am very impressed by the formula! Most of them are 1-coaters! There is two down sides though, 1. the brush. It’s clunky and made it difficult not to make a mess. I hate messes. 2. The total lack of interesting colors. Could it be more boring? Dear ELF, if you read this, please pretty please change the brush and for Gods sake MAKE MORE AMUSING COLORS. If you do I will be your number one fan. Or something. At least then I will buy from you again.

Dark Navy & Royal Purple (the ones I actually wanted)

Punk Purple & Berry Pink

Black & White

The last pic of the black and white looks kind of nasty, the black bottle is all dirty (black polish I guess because I can’t get it off) and the white bottle was broke when I got it so it’s also all dirty. Bleh.

My NOTD; e.l.f – dark navy. (basecoat) 1 coat plus top coat.

E.L.F - Dark Navy

Kittens and NOTD

Finally I can paint my nails again! Haven’t been able to do it the last couple of days since my cat was expecting, and I didn’t want to have nailpolish on when assisting her birth. She gave birth to 4 healthy kittens today at 05.00 in the morning, I am so proud of her! And I think she is very proud of her kittens, she is such a loving mother :)

Annwn and her newborns

Back on topic, my notd is Misa – No Shrinking Violetta. It’s pretty, but I don’t know, it makes me feel old :/ I will store it in a box in the back of my closet and take it back out when I’m 65. Or at least 50.

This is the first time ever I wear a holo. I’m amazed. It’s so damn fascinating! On the other hand, I’m so new at this that I’m fascinated by pretty much everything ,D

I LOVE THIS. Why are awesome polishes so hard to photograph?

Sanitazion and lilac polish

I really wanted to swatch both neo whimsical and van d’go today, but I’ve been busy sanitizing (yes, not only cleaning but disinfecting as well) my apartment. Times like these I really wish I didn’t have 3 rooms. Finally done with one room I thought I would at least make a try swatching one of the polishes, and decided for neo whimsical. The sun was already going down, so the light wasn’t the best, but I think I got at least a half decent picture. The application of this one is in my opinion kind of tricky. At least when you’re in a hurry.

Oh, and my cat Sivert says hi by the way!

Sivert looks kind of crazy in this pic
