Fade Street – The Penultimate Episode

Woe! This weeks episode of Fade Street is the second last one in the series. Will it be back for a second series? Will Louise stay in the show (rumours say she might not)? And, most importantly, will Wexford Paul ever make a comeback?? (Probably not, seeing as he reckons the rest of the cast members are all f**kin’ eejits.)

But the woe seems to have spread into Fade Street itself – this week Louise burst into tears as Michael “MOD” O’ Doherty told her he was tired of her amateur dramatics (oh hello pot, this is kettle!) and hinted that she should leave.

How much would you pay to see MOD cry for a change? Eh? (p.s. great nail polish)

Immediately I thought – oh no, no more sassy quips from Dillon St. Paul! – but my fears were allayed when he and Louise met up for chips and a bitching session in Captain Americas. Phew 🙂

This was truly the episode of the Dodgy ‘Tache. Some friends assured me that the episode was (probably) filmed last November during the Movember campaign, where fellas grew moustaches in aid of prostate cancer charities. Now that is lovely, and all well and good, but the ‘taches on these lads were plain creepy.

The dodgiest tache of them all

Did anyone else find Harrison and Diarmaid’s gym session a little bit creepy? I mean, two men, pumping iron, alone in a gym… I don’t know…

Diarmaid working up a sweat

Actually the creepiest thing about their little tête-à-tête in the gym is Harrison’s awful tache. It made me think of this ~

macho macho man... I want to be a macho man...

This week, Melina went on a date with the dubious Diarmaid, and they talked about interesting things like Melina, more Melina, and Melina again, until Diarmaid got so bored he had to throw a joke/insult her way, just to liven things up.  This date just proved that Melina is the Queen of Evil – because just LOOK at her nails.

French Manicure!! Gahhh my eyes, it burns!!

Cici made her presence felt this week, but not because of her eyebrows – this time her sweeping black eyeliner stole the show. Here she is browsing in Penneys (yay Penneys!) with Dani, musing over whether or not to buy a two euro belt.

how eyeliner should be done

Masterful. Cici might not get much of a storyline in Fade Street, but her choice of cosmetics speaks volumes. Unfortunately, she had a little style slip-up later in the show, as she sported a 90s chic nose ring. I know people will disagree with me here, but I think it was a little much…

her make-up is amazing though

Dani really impressed with her cute 1920s flapper style – she wore a gold chevron headband and a loose peach slip dress to Cici’s band-night-that-ended-up-being-a-club-night.


Then she was chatted up by Cici’s DJ friend, Josh, who came out with perhaps THE best chat-up line of the whole series.

"yiv a lovely face"

Unfortunately, Dani’s propensity to be attracted to possessive, neurotic men reared its head, and Andre barrelled in (out of nowhere, seemingly) to find Dani and Josh flirting the house down. Of course, á la Wexford Paul, Andre made a show of Dani and left her upset and date-less again. Poor Dani.

can't catch a break. but looks very cute.

Finally, I have to give serious “woo”s and “yay”s and thank you”s to the person who chooses the soundtrack for Fade Street, because they ended on the most beautiful song by one of my favourite Irish artists, Lisa Hannigan.

I’ll leave you now with the song. Can’t wait for next week, but I don’t want Fade Street to be over!

Intergalactic Blue: It’s Out of This World!

Hey everyone! Happy new year +1 month! I hope 2011 has been good to you all so far, although I can’t honestly say I personally notice a big huge difference from 2010 (*yet*!), but I am looking forward to discovering what the year has in store. I’m sorry for my long absence; aside from the scandalous condition of my cuticles, I’ve been so busy that I’ve been resorting to the easiest of manicures, which is my favorite rocker chic black (and which is a bit more forgiving when it comes to chippage- chipped black nail polish, though slightly unattractive, can look rather fashionable… in a grungy punky sort of way).

Speaking of my favorite manicure, I thought I’d make my first post of the year about my other favorite nail polish color, a fun, equally as dramatic alternative to black: deep, metallic indigo, or as I like to call it “Intergalactic Blue.” Perahps this color was once more of a “young” color for the experimental teenager, but now it would seem that even the most chic of sophisticates is sporting this deep, striking color. In fact, admiring this shade on my own fingers sort of sends me into a sci-fi trance… it reminds me of space ships, futuristic trend setters, and rocker chicks from another dimension. Honestly, I don’t know why this polish has such a psychedelic effect on me (I share this information at the risk of sounding a bit delusional…), but there is something so transcendental about this color that sends me into the whirlwind throws of an overactive imagination.

The intergalactic blue that I use is No. 266 Blu Oltremare by Kiko Make Up Milano. However, since Kiko is not available everywhere, I’ve done my research and compiled a small list of some formidable dupes:
1. OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue (via Get Nailed By Polish)
2. Sinful Colors No. 929 Let’s Talk (via eye adore pretty)
3. Wet N Wild Saved By The Blue (via The Nailphile)
4. Revlon Midnight Affair (via Dani Cassiano Make Up)
5. Essie Aruba Blue (via Aurora’s Nails)
6. China Glaze Blue Paradise (via Scrangie)

Until next time, the force be with you…
