Zoya Tangy

Hi! I've been slacking, as usual, but I have a duochrome from Zoya to make up for it!

I have been busy lazing around being completely bored and enjoying time with family for the past few days. I don't think I'll have much time to post until next week.

I received this in a swap from Rachel (I'm sure you know and are following her blog already. I want to live in her stash). I told her to choose whatever Zoyas she thought were good and she sent me this! At first I thought this was an okay color (since I don't wear green often) but when I put it on... I was wowed.

I did 3 (or was it 2? I REALLY need to write this down) coats with top coat. It's a light green shimmer with orange duochrome. Two colors I don't wear often by themselves, but together...

Isn't it gorgeous? I never thought orange and green would go together anywhere else besides a tangerine tree, but they do!

China Glaze Meteor Shower

Hello! I hope you're having a good day (I know it's Monday) today. Technically, I am still on hiatus until Friday at least but today is a special day for me so I wanted to write a post today.

Today is my birthday! Why was it so hard to type that. I tried quite a few times before I could get it out. Today was all about "It's my birthday and I'll ___ if I want to."

Anyway, I was going to wear Chanel Peridot and post that (because it's my birthstone), but last week I filed my nails down because I had a couple of peels and it made my nails pretty thin. I am saving Peridot until my nails are 100% again.

China Glaze Meteor Shower is gorgeous and worthy of the birthday post. I got a few compliments while wearing it, which doesn't happen often, so I know I wasn't the only one who loved it.

I did 2-3 coats (can't remember) with about 2-3 layers of top coat. It's gritty, so if you have Gelous (which I need), you might want to use it. It looks better when it's completely smooth. The glitter ate the topcoat over a couple of days so you'd probably have to add more when it's noticeable.

If you don't have this, and you like glitter and/or blue, YOU NEED THIS. If only China Glaze would make a red one. I would be all over it in less than a Mississippi second.

I will be back in less than a week! Can't believe I'm finishing my first year already. When I'm back, I'll have a contest and some surprises, maybe ;)

Happy Monday, guys. I hope this blue kicks the hell out of your Monday blues (:

Someone on Twitter said I should write this post. Considering I haven't posted anything since last month, I guess it's appropriate.

I have to study for exams so I won't be posting much (or at all, maybe) until the end of August. I'm hoping I'll get a post in on the 22nd *hint hint* but I can't guarantee anything.

So, to anyone who was wondering where I was (if anyone at all) or if anyone was thinking of unfollowing (not that I'd stop you) because I wasn't coming up with anything, I'm still alive and still bugging a whole bunch of people on Twitter. I will still be on Twitter but I just don't have time to write a blog post.

I promise I'll be back by September with a lot of posts hopefully and some themed weeks :D If you have any suggestions for themes that I could use for a week, leave them in the comments below!

I'll be dying to show you stuff until then. Have a good August!
