(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.

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 *~~~~~*

Kuroko no Basket is ARM AND SOGGY BOY PRON \♥O♥/

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!

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

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. :)

Those are some pretty colors! :-)

I have that anime on my list of things to watch now, you know. Someday I might even get to it! LOL

*hugs you a lot*

(Lord of the Flies! Eep! Is it that time again?)

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.

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.

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.

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

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...

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,

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.

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.

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!
