(Left to Right): Shiny Dancer (Sephora by OPI), Rococo-a-go-go (ORLY), Royal Velvet (ORLY), Rose Radiance (ORLY)

Went to ULTA for the first time looking for a few nail polishes that I liked that matched/complimented what I usually wear. ORLY had a Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal, which worked out 'cause Rococo-a-go-go was the first to catch my eye (and it is very close to the color of my bridesmaid dress!!) . My brother found Royal Velvet, but he had no idea where he got it from in the store (it was the only one left). Rose Radiance took a long while to find (and hardly ever wear pink in every day clothing (I'm much more blues and blacks), my dresses are mostly pink). Shiny Dancer was from JcPenny's and it was beautiful.

There was this really nice one ORLY that caught my attention, but I don't remember what it was called (I'll check next weekend after rehearsal). However, it was $12 a bottle vs. $8-$10 like the others were, so it was a no go. There was also this sort of frosty pink/silver color (in the Sinful Colors or Nicole by OPI line... I don't remember), but I am probably not going to get it since I have a pink one now already.

Izuki, Hyuuga, and Mitobe give things a thumbs up. I love these three a whoooole lot!
Kise looking super handsome. Kuroko looking super neutral. Kagami looking super focused.
Kise striking a pose for Midorima. Look at them sexy arms! Have I mentioned I like sleeveless shirts for athletic guys?
Kise... *melts*

Pretty much took a week off of writing *gasp*. Real life too busy. Will get back into it this week. Today I subbed for HS English. I think the gloomy rainy weather pretty much eliminated any desire to do vocab worksheets lol. Followed by a Lord of the Flies chart (literary devices and about the characters). And it's Monday. Students don't like Monday. I don't really either.

*goes back to playing Angry Birds in Space*

Rococo-a-go-go is one of my favorite colors ever. I love nail polish lol.

I like colors a whole lot, but I never wear any makeup because I don't get up earlier than necessary for school and I doing a lot of athletic stuff often so there isn't a point of me going through all of the trouble. I don't think I can wear distracting nail polish to school as a teacher.
And there isn't anything to do around here so no nights on the town or anything

Rococo-a-go-go is my favorite of the set I think. But I love them all.

I am so with you on the sleeveless shirt issue. I watched all 5 episodes of Kuroko no Basuke today ♥ I've already press-ganged my rp partner into watching it so we can rp it >.>

Atobe wore a sleeveless shirt while working out prior to Nationals in his gym. One of the best panels ever.

I hope that your RP partner enjoys watching it :) I totally like the hard work -> victory | teamwork | diverse characters type of anime. Yay sports!

Btw, your package came in the mail today :) Shiny covers! I'll be flipping through them tonight and looking at the pictures 'cause I can't read most of it.

Atobe minus clothing is always a pleasure. I hope so too. It's cool having a few people on my f-list who like it so we can chat here, but I need more sports-themed rp in my life asap.

I'm glad it got there safely. It's a bit tricky to read them without furigana, but I enjoy seeing the diverse stories/art styles. I bought so many of them cheap at Book Off during my time in SK. It was addictive stuff XD

Orly varnishes are so *__________* Every time I see them all in a row I'm spoilt for choice, I just want them ALL. Oh oh! You got Royal Velvet, I've been looking for that one forever but it eludes me /o\. Oh well, I got 'It's Up To Blue' which makes me wibble *~~~~~*

They really are! I was a bit O.O in the ULTA store 'cause it was like "Where do I even start?!?!?!?!". I'm totally a dude in a chick's body. I swear it.

Rococo-a-go-go was next to Rock It and something else on the little display for that collection. And I was contemplating it for a while and then my brother showed up with a bottle of Royal Velvet and was like "You like blue. This looks nice." The store lady told us it was the last bottle and it must have gotten shuffled into the permanent collection so that explained why we couldn't find anymore.

I hope that it finds you someday. *goes to Google "It's Up To Blue"* Ooo that's a nice one. I love the color! I was contemplating buying a teal one, but it would match absolutely nothing of what I have and I'm very poor. And stingy about money

AND I LOVE IT. MUSCLE-Y ARMS FTW!

Ugh, that much colour is too much of an eyegasm. I CANNOT *~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*

HAH. You brother has taste ;) And lucky to get the last one! Mmm, that deep blue @o@

It probably will. The wholesalers have so much stock, and they always bring in new things, so it'll probably appear next time I go.

Ya! I love bluey turquoise colours ;D I'm currently looking for this particular shade, the closest I've seen is Gumdrop (Orly) but I've never found it in the shops :(. But it'll turn up, just like Hot Shot did. :D

That and all of the cosmetics and other beauty products. //brain overload//

Deep blue is <3 <3 <3

Anything blue is good in my book, but bluey turquoise is so so so nice. It's peacefully radiant (if that makes any sense?). Ahhh I remember Hot Shot! It looks fab on you! I hope that your shade shows up as well.

THEY DRIBBLE BALLS. SHOOT BALLS. PASS BALLS. DUNK BALLS. AND MANHANDLE BALLS WITH THE OCCASIONAL SMACK

MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE WE'RE PISCES HYMN \O/

It's just gowjas ;D Heee. Phooo, the photo totally didn't do it justice. I can't wait to try on some other colours I've got :>

Or if you're Niou, put them under your top and pretend they're boobs >DDD

Lipstick and wind instruments do not go well together :[ Plus, I think I look funny in lipstick >.> I don't know 'cause I've never seen a pic of you, but I feel like you look fab in brighter colors. I dunno - just a feeling I suppose XD You're so cool.

PISCES AND BIRTHDAY NEIGHBORS!!!! \o/ *cheers loudly*

Okay, I thought gowjas was a word for a second and I was going to ask you what it meant. Derp derp. Most photos don't do nails justice. Ooooo post pictures, yeah? I'll do mine Friday night so I can actually wear it through the weekend before I have to take it off for school again. I'm thinking Rococo-a-go-go since it appears to be everyone's fav right now.

LMAO. That boy. What is Yagyuu going to do with him?
Actually...
Don't answer that.
I'm sure I know.
Or at least have an assortment of ideas to choose from.

Hahahaha, oh yes, that's true! (The mental imagery....LMAO XDDD)

C'est moi ;) I really do like bright colours, but sometimes I don't feel I have the confidence to pull them off, ehe :P Kinda sick of always wearing dark colours and that.

WOOHOO! *table dances* \o/ \o/

Hey now, don't forget, I'm a Londoner so my cockney sometimes finds it's way through XDDDD Will do! My nails have grown longer now so let's see how the colour will look on them! I'd say Royal Velvet was my fave. In the bottle, Rococo looks like a galaxy *u*

WE ALL KNOW WHAT HE WOULD DO TO HIM HYMN. BUT SHHHHHHHH, WE'LL KEEP IT A SECRET.
absolutehymn007
May. 8th, 2012 12:19 pm (UTC)
YOU LOOK SO PRETTY!!! Bright colors - yes! But you can make dark colors work too. I think it's because all of your art is so colorful and vibrant that I feel like you can pull that off. //perception//

*table dances with you* *with Niou too* XDDDD

Gowjas should be inducted into the dictionary. What should it mean?
\o/ Go Royal Velvet! I really liked Shiny Dancer at the store, but I think Rococo beat it out when I put them all on one hand. Only by a little bit 'cause I love them all.

SECRET KEPT.

Pretty polish is pretty. Even though I generally only wear polish on my toes and that's a color called Gunmetal(its this awesome silvery-blue color) and if I ever do paint my fingernails, I do them black. But the two blue colors that you got are probably ones that I would have gotten. I'm like you, I'm don't wear much pink(ok I don't really have any pink in my clothes except I have one black dress with a pink ribbon around the waist but that's it) so that's one reason why I tend to just stick with black polish
absolutehymn007
May. 7th, 2012 09:29 pm (UTC)
It is very pretty! The one on the left I would classify a more blue gunmetal gray (sort of depends on the light that it's in). I love a good sapphire or azure, but I wouldn't wear them as nail polish because it would be too vibrant for me I think.

If I wore black nail polish to school, a lot of my kids would check if there was something wrong with me lol because they know that I don't wear any makeup. Or they might think I'm going gothic because they're really quick to jump to conclusions.

Black does go well with everything :D ! My coat, laptop bag, and lunch bag are all black - I find it a bit funny some mornings when I roll into school just how monochromatic I look.

PS - I saw that you put a picture up for me, but it didn't want to load at home x.x (it might be a higher quality than what you usually share). I'm going to hop over to it (and the entry... I saw Baba mentioned...) tomorrow when I'm at school and on the wifi. :)

I don't wear any make up either but I used to wear nothing but black (during my emo-ish phase where I wasn't really emo but I was listening to Tokio Hotel and Cinema Bizarre and a bunch of other bands that wore a lot of black, had crazy hair, piercings, tattoos and the guys wore black nail polish) so I started wearing the black polish. I think if I would have started to wear heavy eyeliner and dyed my hair black it would have been too much but for some reason, with my pasty white skin that I have naturally, it worked :S

That's fine for looking at it later. And yes, I mentioned Baba, I posted pics of the cast of the new Tumbling production that he's in

This picture doesn't do the Rococo-a-go-go one that much justice. It's more purple-y than gold most of the time. But yeah, I'm really happy with them :)

YAY. In the meantime, you'll just be spammed with pictures of Kise and Izuki through my journal lololol.

*hugs*

Of all English books I read in high school, Lord of the Flies was by far the worst. I HATED that book omg. They're being tested on Ch. 6 of the book tomorrow.

The colours are so lovely, especially the Rococo-a-go-go. I just bought nail polish myself, a black one entitled 'black lingerie'
I wonder why my left nails are neat while the right are always so messy whenever I put on nails polishes.
absolutehymn007
May. 8th, 2012 02:30 am (UTC)
Rococo-a-go-go seems to be a lot of peoples' favorites. I really like how it looks too (even better on nails!). The ones on the ends look pretty much the same in the jar as on your nails. (I tried a sample on each nail before I bought them).

Ooo... what brand was it? Is it just black or is there glitter/specks in it?

Are you right handed? I haven't even tried to paint my right yet so Friday afterschool should be interesting.
tsukiokuhime
May. 8th, 2012 11:26 pm (UTC)
Does it have glitter on it? Now I try to get a closer look, I see some of them.

Revlon, I was surprised myself when I learnt the name. It's just black, I'm not really fond of glitter.

Yes, I am...wait, it must be it, isn't it?

Woo pretty colors! They're so sparkly! *__* I kind of envy you wearing dark colors; I think they make me look funny. Then again, I don't actually wear nail polish, so it's a moot point. XD Are you going to post pictures of them when you wear them? I do so enjoy Sunny's nail polish spam. :D Either way, I hope you have fun with your pretty new toys~

I'm glad you got a week off from writing. I think the brain needs a rest every once in awhile. Hopefully when you return to your story, everything is fresh and ready to go.

I like sparkly \(*.*)/ All of my clothing are jewel tones/dark colors. I have a few light blue shirts and white t-shirts, but otherwise, I'm blues and blacks and grays and dark greens.

I don't actually wear nail polish either, but I figured that I had a little bit of money, and that it would be nice to have a few to my name for friend outings in the future. Yeah, I'll post pictures so my friends can see what they look like (my nails however, aren't as awesome as Sunny's. They're nice and fairly long, but they're not cut to perfection nor do I have any skill whatsoever in applying nail polish).

Go buy a bottle of nail polish during our EPIC trip??? XD

As much as my brain needed and LOVED the rest, it's now starting to get into panic overdrive mode that I have one month left to finish it so I can actually sit down and edit it. AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

<3 you too.

I bet these sparklies look great on you, Hymn. But don't worry if you're nails aren't perfect; I'm sure they're nice. My hands are, uh, well you can tell I work for a living. >__>

I'm glad you treated yourself with these polishes. It's fun to try something new, especially if it's for fun times!

Did you impose that writing deadline on yourself or is it for something? Either way, YOU CAN DO IT!!!! \o/

ooooh, such pretty colors! I like the rococo one. My sister likes nail polishes like whoa! I end up giving her 0.50u$s nail polishes, which don't last much long... which is perfect in a sense :D
absolutehymn007
May. 8th, 2012 02:39 am (UTC)
Ah thank you! Rococo-a-go-go is definitely popular today :D Well that's nice of you to buy for your sister :) Ahhhh, .50 cents. How I wish things would be cheaper like they used to be...

the three of them are pretty, but I like rococo the best. Hey, metallic polishes are the bestest!!
I can only thank the chinese stores near the house where I have a class... I would send them to you but I fear they would be destroyed in the process.

LOLOLOL YOU'RE FINE. :D I've been wanting to get a few bottles a ways back anyways... when you posted the ORLY ones I think 'cause they all looked so cool.

If it wasn't dangerous goods, I'd send them to you.

Thank you for the tip! This will bring me success. Or I can just royally screw up... When I tried it the other day, I had a normal coat and then a thin coat and that worked out.

What's VNL?

Thanks much Sunny!

*envies your ability to tolerate the feel of nail polish* Those are such lovely colors!At some point I will have to look into this anime that you are touting, it sounds quite good.

Honestly never read Lord of the Flies in HS,
absolutehymn007
May. 8th, 2012 03:51 am (UTC)
Is it the feeling of putting it on or wearing it? Wearing it for a few hours (I had one color on each finger from the store) was a bit of a strange sensation. I kept staring at them... and I was outside hauling logs into the van and then driving home to stack them back home lololol.

You will love Kuroko no Basket. I'm not kidding. But Kise is mine. I'm all over him. And Izuki too. They do a great job with the animation and the art is clean and vibrant. And Suwabe is showing up soon! There's a lot of win here... especially for me since I like the teamwork, hard work -> victory, competitive sports thing. And all of the characters have such a different personality. It's awesome.

I HATE Lord of the Flies. Worst book ever of all the books I had to read in high school. Now, Fahrenheit 451 was definitely my favorite. Now I want to re-read it again.
feihu
May. 8th, 2012 03:56 am (UTC)
It's the feel of wearing it. People usually look at me weird when I say this, but I can literally feel it sealing the pores in the nails. And your nails do have pores, or at least something similar.

Must find time for it then! *looks at reading list on nook* ...yeah, Game of Thrones can be read strictly at work.

I read 1984 instead of Fahrenheit 451.
absolutehymn007
May. 8th, 2012 04:03 am (UTC)
No, I totally get you. That's actually one of the reasons why I rarely wear makeup (especially foundation) cause it feels like I'm sealing my pores.

I bought Book 1 and 2 of Game of Thrones last week and Game of Thrones Season 1 two days ago. I'll be going through it slowly 'cause I need to get back to PoT/FE and the job hunt, but I do have this stuff now! :)

My brother loved 1984. It was an AP English book and I never took that class. Fahrenheit 451 with Honors English 11 (maybe regular English 11 too, but I'm not sure). We both loved Fahrenheit.

May. 8th, 2012 04:20 am (UTC)
I don't wear makeup because I'm allergic to so many of them. I think. I know I scratch all the makeup off because it makes my face itch so bad.

Ok, I very rarely say this, but watch the DVDs first. It helps to be able to put faces to names even if things are different. The biggest difference is in the ages of the characters. Also, YAY! I have someone to talk to about it! :D

I don't wear nail polish very often (I think the last time was September of 2010), but I would wear Rococo-a-go-go, I think. From the picture, it looks lovely.
absolutehymn007
May. 8th, 2012 04:06 am (UTC)
Rococo-a-go-go seems to take all tonight! It's such a beautiful polish.
Last time I wore nail polish was six years ago. For my senior prom.

Pictures this weekend!

May. 8th, 2012 04:23 am (UTC)
It's funny, my nails are naturally really strong so they grow quite long - which means they're perfectly suited for nail polish... I'm just too lazy to actually do anything about it. >_<

Right now, I think I only own one colour of polish: white.

I wonder if I could do my nails as a Hyotei jersey? or would that look totally lame?
