This will probably be a picture heavy post because I have to catch up on what I missed. So after I took Limbo Bimbo off my nails, I put on Essie's Turquoise and Caicos!!!! Yes! I finally bought it! While we were out a couple days ago my mom had to stop at Walgreens. So I ran in just to look at like the Sinful Colors section, but my eye caught on the wall of Essie! Turquoise and Caicos has been on my wishlist for a while now so I couldn't pass it up. I think it was like $8.69 or something with tax. The guy checking me out at the register was like "geez, that's some expensive polish!". And I told him it was worth every penny!
|Isn't it beautiful!? I think this is two coats. It was kind of streaky so I just applied it thick.|
I have some other exciting news though!! That Essie polish is the last polish i'm buying until I go to Tennessee in August! BECAUSE...i'm going to the Cosmetic Market! And i'm saving all of my tips until then! I'm so so so excited because around here I don't have an Ulta or any other type of beauty store. The only thing I have is a Sally's, and they don't even carry OPI. So my parents and I are making a trip up to visit my family in Tennessee and while we're there my aunt and cousin are going to take me to the Cosmetic Market! And trust me-i've seen my cousin's stash of OPI. It's amazing! And during our family beach trip in June, they gave me Teenage Dream and Not Like The Movies, which they got from the Cosmetic Market. So I know that they must have a great selection! It's gonna be one MEGA HAUL!
I'm being really long-winded in this post but I can't help it! So yesterday after I took off T&C I painted my nails with OPI's Guy Meets Gal-veston. Which is like a red jelly. It isn't completely red. It starts off as more of a coral and the more coats you put on, the more it looks red. I'm not the biggest fan of jellies, but I had never used Guy Meets Gal-veston before. I put on four coats, and it isn't that bad after all.
Also, I have some more good news! Actually it's just really good news for me! When we were in the waiting room at the hospital, a woman sitting across from us asked me if I had psoriasis. And I do, so we got into this giant conversation about what she uses for hers and all the stuff we've tried and everything. I don't know if i've mentioned before on here that I have psoriasis. It's a hereditary skin condition that isn't contagious. I've had it since I was in first grade so everyone I go to school with is used to it. I have a lightbox in my room that I use. There is currently no cure for psoriasis, but I am hopeful that one day there will be. Here's a link if you want to read more about it or anything: http://www.psoriasis.org/page.aspx?pid=1832 So anyways-you can get psoriasis under your fingernails. And it will make them have ridges and things. LUCKILY-I have not been affected by psoriasis under my nails yet. Knock on wood! So my mom asked the woman if she has it under her nails and she said yes. And then she said something amazing-"But the doctor said to always keep them painted, so that the air can't get to them..." Whatever the reason was behind that-I kind of spaced out. Haha. I was so happy! So maybe me keeping my nails painted all the time is what has kept me from getting it under my nails! I was kind of rubbing it in my mom's face too because she always gets on me about letting my nails breathe and stuff. So now I feel like I can have all the polish I want!! Yaay!
I'm almost done! LOL. On my last post I told y'all that I was in a contest on snapfish and I left the link for y'all to 'like' my picture. I think a couple of y'all did it-so thanks so much! I'm going to leave a couple more links to some of my other pictures in different color categories. Remember, once you click on the link I leave, under 'Share the love' on the right side of the page, click 'Like'. I believe that you have to be logged into facebook to do so.
Y'all are the best! I know I originally said the post would be picture heavy, but I think it was more word heavy than anything! Let me know what y'all think-about anything! Haha.
