Milani: Fresh Teal.


Another NEON!
I really like this color!

2 coats. Pretty opaque..
My camera gets confused with this color though..

It's sort of more green.. but it really does look bluish in some lights..

 Blue/green.. Teal!!

Oh I don't know? 
The color is so hard to explain!!   haha

It says it's a neon... but it dries shiny and jelly... not matte at all!
I'm not understanding what is neon about it.. ? 
Maybe in the way it interacts with certain lights..? 

I have no idea what I'm talking about..
ehh.. I like it. 
No need to overthink..


Essie: Peach Daiquiri.


She is so pretty!
In the light

I got this in a nail swap with Nailstah!
In the shade

Very pinkish coral on me.
They all always seem to look reddish on me no matter the shade.
I think I'm going to give up and not buy anymore corals.
But she is a nice coral..
3 coats to get it a nice even look.
So pretty.

With a flash


Sinful Colors: Mint Apple.

I'm going to show one of my favorite non pink shades...

Pink is my favorite nail polish color.
However, green is my favorite color color..

I just can't seem to find green nail polish colors that I like..
My favorite 'other' shades.. are mints, teals, turquoises, and vampy greens..
However, I have a limited number of these shades.

I'm really a crazy pink polish girl..

Sinful Colors - Mint Apple. This is a pretty shade of green.

 This is 2 coats.

Hmmm.. but I don't like it.
I think there is something wrong with me.

Because, when I look at the shimmer on this pretty shade.

I literally feel sea sick.
I'm a weirdo...

So, I swapped this to Imperfectly Painted.
She likes it.


NOTD: Pink Cover Up!

I just realized that I  love wearing black matted! It looks really chic!
right hand.
So after playing the guitar..
cleaning up,
getting ready for school,
doing laundry.

Polish chipped!
So I put some pink over the mess ups and ran to class!
I think it looks kind of cool...
I added some more pink too so it looked like I meant to do this.

* classes were ok...and we got out early..!

It was pretty hot though... 94 degrees is not normal around here. It's usually 60-70..

This summer was pretty cold and foggy.
It feels like summer just started now. Perfect!  Right when school has started...I want to be at the beach now.. but now I'm stuck in a hot sticky classroom..

So, I came straight home to blog! It was too hot to stick around campus.
We don't have air conditioning in the bay area....:-(

and really amazing voices..

At this moment I'm obsessed with
Nina Simone,
Jose Gonzalez,
Nick Drake,
Sufjan Stevens,
Iron +Wine,
Jeff Buckley....

 I love a  pretty acoustic sound!!
So I had to sing too!

um it is not 'perfect'  I just learned it!

I didn't practice.. I thought it was easy.. but noooo it is not
There are lots of bar chords!!
Those are hard..for me..

So,  I'm kind of in pain playing them...
Fingers are not strong enough!
Video was clipped for some reason... oh wells..

Color Club: Yell-Oh!

Color Club: Yell-Oh!

I wasn't sure I was going to like this.
It's very unique.....

As a FULL mani...
Um,  I think this is ugliest mani color EVER!!!

This is ugly..! UGLY..

...BUT for nail art I will consider this color.

It's one of those weird colors that don't really dry...

3/4 coats.

I actually might return it..
Maybe I just got a bad batch..
It was really sheer..and runny
I'm not feeling this bottle..

This did not dry at all. :-(


Sinful Colors: Dream On.


Hard to capture the color.
 2 coats.
Purple/reddish neon.

The bottom picture is with top coat. I think this is the closest it gets to capturing the shade of this color...
 What a little pain this lady is to photograph...



Sally Hansen: Mellow Yellow.


A runny mellow yellow.
The application was a little annoying because the color was thick...
But it began to run into my cuticles a lot.

Messy clean up.
2 coats.


Wet N Wild: Sunny Side Up.

Wet N Wild: Sunny Side Up

I like this orange.
I don't own very many...Oranges are not my thing.
I have 2/3 maybe...
I think I will splurge and buy a nice orange ONE day...
But this is  a GREAT color for a dollar!

3 coats.
A little sheer.
But builds up nice, and is not goopy or runny.
Not sure if this is a creme or jelly?
I think it's a little of both.. ?
I don't know....




This is a rant post.

I was taught not to say mean things,
show emotion,
ever be angry,
or even have an opinion..

You grow up to be a very fake person.
So, I'm trying really hard to be real...
Man, I have issues.

I need to vent.

I also feel all sick today because I took some medicine
it makes me nauseous + cranky.

I know it's not a good idea to write when you are  mad.
But whatever.. I will break the rule.


let the ranting start!

The Pink That Started the Crazy.....

Beauty Without Cruelty: Raspberry
a frosty,
a shimmery,
a little bit mauvey
an awesome pink

with flash

They are a vegan polish. 1 coat!!

I got it for 14 dollars..?  About a year and a half ago.
When architecture people had jobs..

I hated my job.
Overtime every weekend.
LONG hours.
AND the worst was that they treated people like crap..!

1. My name does not sound like OBAMA. What the hell. Please stop calling me this!!

2.  So you say your ancestors hung and picked n*g.. wow.. That's interesting! this as an explanation of where the word picnic comes from. WOW!

3.  So you say my other coworker is not Korean.. at all.. !  Even though she's Korean! Just because she doesn't act to your stereotype..

4. And let's not forget the crazy sociopath project manager.. omg goddddd! crazy. Everyone HATED him..

I think I was a little bit to naive/scared/shy to say anything.
And it seemed like everyone was so used to the abuse....
that saying something would not do anything, except get you fired. :-(

I hated that job. 

So, I bought this little polish as retail therapy... it worked..!
no flash

This is the pink that started my crazy obsession with pink nail polish..

I wear this polish when I feel like crapp crapp... because it always makes me feel a little better.

The pics aren't doing the polish justice for some reason.
And I had my fan on, so there is a bubble in the picture.

...but this is such a  pretty polish!!!!!

No, I don't work at the crazy place anymore...

ehh good bye..!

I'm actually trying to change my career.

Too much stress caused me my health to go really bad!

Architects NEVER SLEEP!
I've found that no sleep = really really bad things for me.

So I'm trying to recover now.. :-D
Taking some classes, + talking to some people, etc.

Pink nail polish helps as well!

yey polish!


China Glaze: Sex on the Beach.

I needed some pink in my life. So I put this sexy lady on last night.

I got this in a swap in nailstah! I pretty much bothered her to let me try some sex on the beach..
It's a lovely color on me. I love it. I love the application..but um..

Look below!

I did this last night while watching  2 doctor who episodes! 1hr and 20 mins of wait time..

The polish was not dry after that. Dented, when I scratched my head.. This made me sad.. but I was too tired to change it last night.
 This is why there is no 'clean up' because I was going to take this polish off this morning
 but was too scatter brained..  :-o.

 I don't know?
 It's a funny polish.
 Maybe I will do 2 coats instead of three... and see if that changes it.
 It's a nice peachy microglittery sandy grainy shade..

It sounds like a good idea.. but I'm not sure sex on the beach is a good idea....

Too much sand..  all over the freaking place.. *i mean polish..*
yes polish goes all over the place.
yes.. I'm talking about polish.

hmm I still think you look pretty, I just wish you would dry.
