China Glaze Prize Winning Mare from Rodeo Diva. Daaaaaaaaaamn this polish is so fine though. It's a light brown but so much more than a light brown because its shimmer is just out of control beautiful. Pink, gold, green and shimmer make an appearance to make the finish of this one really complex. I honestly don't remember how many coats of this I used, but most of these early B3F polishes need three to be totally opaque. And that's fine with me. Because look at it. 2008 was suuuuuuch a good year for polish. I'm glad that that's basically when I started collecting because I love going back to these beauties now, especially when the weather (regrettably) starts getting a little crisper.
Lots of stuff happened since I've been gone:
My best friend got married! Isn't she radiant in this photo? And I'm just like UH I'M EATING. But anyway, I was the matron of honor and I had a blast that day taking photos and making speeches and dancing the night away.
I had most of my hair cut off! It was time for a change, and even though I had a substantial cut back in July I just wasn't feeling the length at all anymore. I have another appointment in November and I think I'd even like to go a little shorter. Very strange for me. I've always had long hair.
I got this beautiful little tattoo! Yep, it's the Deathly Hallows from Harry Potter. Yep, it's not supposed to be quite complete. It looks like brushstrokes up close and I wanted it to have a sketchy, delicate quality. I love how it turned out and I'm glad I pulled the trigger on this one. You've already seen this if you follow me on Insta (RemyRagdoll).
B and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary in a field of sunflowers! I can't believe it's been a year already, but at the same time it feels like the wedding was forever ago.
Basically I am just totally ridiculously busy also, hence my absence. Every weekend we've had to go out of town for something, and I'm way behind on my [teaching] schoolwork and I can't catch up because NO WEEKENDS and OTHER JOB. So really I'm just over here trying to catch my breath and I'm lucky if I can tend to my nails once a week. *sob* I know it's awful. But, it could be worse.
Hope all's well with you all. Farewell, summer 2015. You were really good to me. Autumn, you're on probation; we're totally not friends yet.
