I’ve been a very bad blogger indeed, neglecting it for more than a week now. My one excuse is that I’ve been writing for NaNoWriMo, also known as National Novel Writing Month. Basically, you bang out 50,000 words of a novel in the month of November. If you win, blessings and peace be upon you. If not, wrath and guilt in their place. Anyway, 1667 words a day is keeping me occupied. Also, my cuticles suck at the moment. They suck to the power of SUUUUUUCK. Winter is not being kind to them. Anyway, I will press on, and continue the Essie theme Molto Fashion has established.
Essie 651 Bermuda Shorts – ridiculous name, cute polish. I remember buying this in Ricky’s, in SoHo NYC, back in the day… two years ago. At $8, it was the most I’d ever spent on a bottle of polish. Bermuda Shorts is a hot neon magenta creme, which dries semi-matte.
As usual, I used three coats of polish over a Rimmel Stronger Try Harder base coat. Then I decided to experiment with different top-coats.
The wear and tear on this polish was not spectacular, I’m sorry to admit. There was tip-wear on the second day. It didn’t chip until the third day, but the tip-wear bothered me. The formula, however, is beautiful and it’s very easy to apply. I couldn’t decide whether I preferred glossy or matte! Luckily, I had the option of both 🙂
Halloween was so much fun. I dressed as a nun, painted my nails bloody (as in previous post) and went to a fireworks party. Here are some of my favourite pictures from the night. (I actually have a specific “fireworks” setting on my camera. This was the first time I’ve ever used it.)
That was my Halloween! I also went to Lady GaGa…
… which was HUH-MAZING. Her nails were painted greige, just like the Deborah Lippmann colour she wore for the Vanity Fair cover. So awesome. And the support act, Semi Precious Weapons, was very entertaining! The lead singer even posed for two photos with my sister. Here’s one of their songs, Put A Diamond On It. Can’t stop singing it.
There’s a hand movement and everything that goes along with the song… not that I do it when I sing along or anything…
