You know those days when nothing really bad happens, yet you happen to feel super shitty? That’s me today but I actually think I’m PMS’ing so that’s normal, I guess. Yeah, TMI but whatever. I haven’t painted my nails in a few days so today I sat down to pick through all my untrieds and I zeroed in on Orly Terra Mauve. I know that a lot of people think mauve is such a grandma color, but I actually love how it looks on me. Even though this lighting washes out my skin a bit, it usually gets the polish color right which I find is really difficult with my other lighting. I guess it’s a trade off, so I’m while I’m searching for a better (and economical) lighting set up, this will have to do.
I found this bottle of Orly Terra Mauve in this crazy polish warehouse and of course I grabbed it because it’s in the huge old style Orly bottles. Look how humungous it is at .75 fluid ounces! The formula on this smelled kind of horrific. It is a very old bottle and I’m sure it is full of those 3 chemicals that everyone tries to avoid nowadays. It seriously made my eyes water a bit! I also found that the formula was beyond thin and it took multiple coats to get a good, even result. While I like the color, I don’t think it’s worth the annoyance.
So what do you have planned for the weekend? Anything fun? I work on Saturday so maybe I’ll do something fun Saturday night but usually I’m so tired and annoyed after work that all I want to do is veg out. I do have to work on my stamping mani for Saturday tomorrow night so wish me luck because I’m totally blanking on ideas. I am planning to go polish shopping tomorrow after work (I will limit myself to 3…max 5 items) so maybe I will find a cool polish to use. Anyway, thanks for stopping by today, and I will talk to you soon.
