Oh my glob, you guys…I am exhausted. I woke up at 7 am and I just finished doing laundry and completely cleaning my apartment. You see, my parents arrive tonight and my mom is a major clean freak (where do you think I get it from?) so I don’t want her to look around and be all disgusted. The last time my mom visited, the following words came out of her mouth: “I know you work and must get home tired. Don’t worry…I understand why your place looks like this.” Uhm, thanks mom! The funny thing is that she was trying to be nice and didn’t really mean for it to sound that bad even though it did. hahaha How do mothers have that way of making you cringe with one small comment? I’m enjoying the last couple of hours of peace and quiet because my little apartment is going to be come a crazy house. I haven’t seen my mom in over a year so I’m pretty excited to have them here for the holidays so I’ll gladly put up with the craziness. You know what else their visit means? ALL THE HOMECOOKED MEXICAN FOOD I CAN EAT. Oh boy…there goes my diet…
So, I am glad I got a few minutes to write up this post because I totally flaked on posting this yesterday. I ended up going out with a friend to celebrate some good news and we ended up going to a yummy restaurant and then we watched Before Midnight. Have you guys seen it? I love Before Sunrise and Before Sunset so this was a great third installment, and I highly recommend it. Ok, ok…let’s get to the polish. Today I have the OPI Mariah Carey 18K White Gold & Silver Leaf Top Coat to share with you so let’s take a look at my swatches below.
There have been quite a few gold/silver leaf top coats in the last year or so and this is my first experience with them. I decided to take the plunge and try it out because I love the luxe-looking bottle. To be honest, I do like how this looks but I won’t be purchasing anything similar–maybe at a lower price point because this baby retails for $30!!! As far as application is concerned, it applied beautifully at one coat.
Well, I hope you’re all doing well and wish me luck with the rents. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon!
