Accident Prone, Born Pretty & TAGGEDFriday, December 02, 2011
Hello people! Let me first start by saying I probably wont be able to post so much because of finals and Christmas work (retail hell, hello!) but I will try to post pure ~quality~ when I get the chance (I need a dash of G's funny-ness!!!). So, some people like to laugh when others get hurt right? Let's start with how accident prone I've been lately.
oh and let's listen to this together shall we? Canadian Rock/(pop?) band. Love them!
We've been renovating our basement and my father was asking for my help because I'm pro at demolishing (hammered a hole in my wall because I underestimated my strength), so as I was walking down to help. I slipped and fell down the stairs. OUCH. possibly fracturing/bruising my tailbone, I am too Iantrophobic to get it checked out though. It's still a little sore but you know, I found out about the RICE method (a.k.a rest, ice, compress, elevate!). A week later I got a burst vein on my right hand near my thumb, I am right handed. T^T THEN (yeah, not over), I got either an eye infection of some bruise. IDK. WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF FEELO!
Now, onto a review!
I bought this the same time I did the lashes but wear wearing some other polish at the time (I don't do much with my nails in the fall/winter tbh). I REALLY have wanted to try a matte polish ever since I bought my friend a matte black last year for Christmas (almost kept it myself!)
I got it on a bit of a sale for $4.47 and it's regularly $4.71... lol not much of a difference but whatever. CLICK for the posting @ bornprettystore.com
When I first tried it out I instantly had two thoughts: 1) holy ish this has a really strong smell, and 2) IT'S NOT MATTE!
It IS matte but like the crackle, takes a few seconds to transform matte. XD The smell... I really can't handle it and would suggest not putting it on in a small room.
The strangest thing was that my right hand chipped almost instantly whereas my left hand has lasted much longer. I think this is because I waiting till one coat dried to do another on that hand. It's been a little over a week and it's no longer matte. It's a bit dfull but there are actually tiny sparkles in the formula. Is this normal for matte polish? I don't really understand why you'd put sparkles in a dull polish. You can kind of see them below.
Now, the colour is very gorgeous. I love dark purples. It's actually really cool to just look at the matte polish. It even feels different, it's not as smooth as most polishes are, not that it is rough but there is a different texture. Application isn't that easy, I found that two coats worked better than one even though the formula is pretty thick.
I don't know if I'd repurchase though, the smell and the fact that the matte doesn't last long isn't really telling me to BUY ME, BUY ME! This is probably the colour I would most like so I'm happy with just this one bottle. Curiosity may get the best of me and I just may try a different colour one day.
hehe I got tagged again! This time by BIBI, thank you!! ^___^
I'm not going to tag anyone, I feel like we're all so busy anyway. :P
