I wish I could lie and tell you that the only reason I am wearing a shiny coat of yellowy-green, puke-colored shiny polish on my nails was in honour of Halloween on Thursday. I wish I could lie and tell you I am not enjoying the metallic colour shimmering when the light hits it. I also wish I could lie and tell you I was doing something cool and fun like testing out ghostly make-up for Thursday and not just wearing a face mask while typing up this post and procrastinating the terribly overdue lecture of Frankenstein..
But alas, with my infrequent use of actual make up to cover up any imperfections on my face, I have to take even more care of my skin – hence the oatmeal mask. With daily dance and frequent visits to the gym, I basically walk around in a sports bra, Uggs, sweatpants and a loose shirt every single day, living on the bare minimum of 6 hours a sleep a night (due to studies and not because I was up watching Sex and the City while munching on Gluten Free Cookies or doing laundry at 2 am..)
I am still using all the non make-up products I mentioned here and here, but since I am nearly out of the Clarins ones, I’m hoping to find a good alternative to test out and keep my skin looking young and fresh. I’ll probably be trekking to my makeup and skin care mecca (otherwise known as Sephora) sometime soon to find something fun. Any recommendations?
Anyhow, let’s look at the manicure I technically applied on Monday but was too caught up in reading Keats (ha I wish!) that I didn’t manage to post about it..
It’s a OPI for SEPHORA brand and it’s called S-age is just a number! It is part of the Spice Market collection that was on sale for a while. It’s a miniature polish and dried very quickly. Also, because it is a SEPHORA brand and not purely OPI it is much more affordable (Especially on sale ;)).
The polish really matches the whole Halloweeny/Fall/October-soon-November theme 🙂
