Sorry I’ve been MIA for a bit. Friday and Saturday were busy days for me, and today I went out shopping with my friend. And I saw The Last Song, which I had super low expectations for. But it was surprisingly good! Her little brother in the movie was adorable! All in all, a good 9 bucks (which btw I find ridiculous. 9 bucks to go see a movie these days? yeesh).
Anyways, here’s the manicure I did yesterday. It’s China Glaze 5 Golden Rings over Zoya Ibiza. I’m calling it Sunken Treasure in an attempt to make it more appealing lol.
Here I am holding a highlighter because I couldn’t find anything else to hold. ehem.
Here’s a close up. Looks kinda cool, dontcha think?
And this is my version of being artistic. The green gum wrappers represent SEAWEED. I was *this close* to holding my nails over my toaster while it was on, and calling it a deep sea volcano, but I refrained.

Some more news on the no-buy front. I’m about to post some pics from setback #2! Well, the no-buy did last for over a month, which for me is pretty good. Once again, I didn’t go insane. See? I’m totally making progress.
top to bottom: Milani Liquif’Eye Eyeliner in Gold, Sonia Kashuk Bent Liner Brush, Maybelline Clear Lipliner
A little recap of the purchased goods. The Milani liner is a nice, creamily vibrant gold. Love. The SK Brush is every bit as good as the lovely Karen of MBB said. I don’t think I could add anything to her review, so go read it. I like how it can make superthin lines, but you can also make thicker lines by adding pressure. It’s supposed to make winging liner easier as well, but I don’t think I’m going down that road again…
I’ve also been looking for a new invisible lip liner, since my HG Sally Hansen one is being discontinued. All my HG products end up going away, especially the inexpensive ones. I hate that. So the Maybelline one looks nowhere near as pretty as the SH one unfortunately. Yeah, I know the appearance doesn’t determine quality, but come on. Look at the difference. Also, I liked that the SH one was twist-up, while I have to sharpen this, but since it’s got more product, it should last just as long. I was scared that it would be a hard, impossibly to apply pencil, but it’s quite soft so whew. If they discontinue this one as well, I’m going to…well I don’t know what I’m going to do actually. Probably make a sound like this: GAAAAAAAAAAAHRLLLBKJKLJBLKJB!
One last thing before I leave. I just thought I’d share a picture of my favorite spoon with you guys. hehe. It’s resting on a delicious bowl of Ginger Ice Cream.
Can’t believe Spring Break is officially over. At least I definitely caught up on my sleep this week. Let me know how you guys are doing!
