A little tidbit for y'all

It's been a super long time with nothing. I haven't been doing many F/NOTDs lately. I've been a little lazy and also focusing on other things. I don't think I'll fully abandon this blog, but I don't think you can expect regular updates. Sorry to all. For slightly more regular updates on me and my life, feel free to swing by Mary Commentary, my personal blog of almost seven years. Also, I update my twitter several times a week.

This is an NOTD and FOTD from several weeks ago. You can tell because I'm still in my dorm. The eyeshadow is from the ELF Drama quad. The nail polish is Nina Ultra Pro in Tickle Me Pink.

Quickie Update

It's been far too long. Exams and such, you know. I've just moved into a new apartment. My camera is still packed in a box somewhere. I'm sorry!!!

I've been terribly busy. I haven't been wearing makeup or polish for a few weeks, so no NOTD or FOTD.

I'll try to do some reviews or something until I can get back in the swing of things.

Daily Stargirl:

Eyes: No shadow, just a quick sweep of Maybelline Volum' Express Turbo Boost
Lips: Zalan Peach Fuss
Cheeks: Avon Earthen Rose
Nails: China Glaze Blue Sparrow, from the Ink CollectionAdd VideoRocking: Awesome jewelry that my momma made (there'll be pix)
Loving: My new apartment! It's cozy, but it's mine.
Going: crazy, stuck inside until the maintenance man gets here today.
Looking: for a job. Sheesh.
Missing: blogging! I am for reals.
Goal: Stick to my budget, stick to my diet, and find a job!

Seche Vite

Seche Vite is a popular top coat polish, I'm sure you're all aware. Today I was reading one of my favorite polish blogs, Little Fairy Nails, which is in French. About Man Glaze Fuggen Ugly, she said "et il sèche aussi très vite :)" At which point I realized that sèche vite actually means "dry quickly."

Vampy Poll!

Time for another Vampy Varnish Poll!!!

Pepsi, Coke or Dr. Pepper? Dr. Pepper, Dr. Pepper, Dr. Pepper!!!!

What has been your favorite Spring/Summer polish collection so far? The neons are all to die for

What's your least favorite nail polish brand and why? Err, I'm not sure. I'll give anyone a chance, really.

Do you have a favorite author? I really don't think I could pick one! I love reading. Right now I'm reading a great book by Augusten Burroughs. Loves it.

NOTD: Thursday April 30 2009

So, from a mini China Glaze haul I got from Sally's during the B2G1 sale, here is Celtic Sun, a freaking yellow neon from the Ink Collection. Awesomelicious. (I also picked up Blue Sparrow. I should've picked up the other four, but apparently, I'm retarded, because the sale is over now.)

I tried it two different ways. First time is two coats of ChG White on White and two coats of ChG Celtic Sun. This comes of very bright and very stark. But, completely opaque.

A little softer is two coats of Maybelline Blushing Bride (which blushes not at all) and two coats of the ChG Celtic Sun. However, there is still a bit of VPL. But my nails are so short right now I hardly care.
