Procrastination at Its Best

What should I be doing right now? School work. What am I actually doing? Sitting on my computer, jammin’ to some some country music. I don’t know what brought it on, but I got into a really big country mood today. I blame Youtube. Or Pandora. Just today, I downloaded Some Hearts and Carnival Ride by Carrie and Same Trailer Different Park by Kacey Musgraves, who actually inspired today’s post.

I heard Kacey on the radio a while back, but recently saw the music video for “Follow Your Arrow.” After watching the video, I was inspired by these screenshots to make a nail look.

With that, I present to you the nail look of the day!

I saw Ms. Musgraves  take out the arrow fortune, and thought it was the cutest thing! After the MV, I tried my best to come with an arrow that would be simple enough for me, but still looked cute. I’d say I was marginally successful. For my thumb and index and pinky fingers, I used Wet N Wild’s I Need a Refresh-Mint.

For my middle finger, I applied one coat of Julep’s Eden. On my pinky is 2/3 (I can’t remember) coats of Essie’s Beyond Cozy. And then for the arrow, I used Reverso from Circus by Andrea’s Choice, which I’m not really a big fan off.

Unfortunately, there was a little bit of smudging. I’m not sure if I didn’t wait long enough before applying my top coat (but really though, I waited over 30 minutes), if I didn’t have enough product on my brush, or if my top coat (Out the Door) just smudges easily.

What music are you currently really into? What top coat do you like best? Let me know in the comments!

What’s Cooler Than Bein’ Cool? Stone Cold!

In Texas lately, it’s been getting colder. So cold in fact that I didn’t have school last Friday (resulting in a 3 day week!) or today. While this only means that we will lose Memorial Day or Good Friday, or maybe even have a shorter Spring Break, I can’t bring myself to care. I’ll have to deal with that when the time comes.

In honor of this cold, snowy-but-not-really-snowy-but-snowy-enough-for-Texas weather, I decided to paint my nails with China Glaze’s Stone Cold, which is from their Hunger Games line from a couple of years ago. I got this color when the first movie was coming out, but kinda forgot about it.

It’s so hard for me to take these pics. I can never get the angle or placement of my hand right.

This color is a charcoal matte with teeny tiny pieces of glitter, that almost gives it a chalkboard feel.

The color was created for District 12, and is easily one of my favorites from the line.

This is the first matte polish I’ve ever owned, and it was strange for me to use in the beginning. It dried surprisingly fast, and still gives me trouble from time to time (as you can tell). Besides that, it’s gotten a little goopey since I keep my nail polish in a cabinet near my shower- which I know is bad because the steam and heat will ruin them, but I currently don’t have anywhere else to store them. Though it’s not my best, I wanted to get a post out because I have just fallen in love with the color all over again.

That’s it for another quickly-thrown-together update. I’m hoping to get a more cutesy/fun post out tomorrow, but we’ll see how it goes… It depends how much patience I have.

Do you have any colors from the China Glaze Hunger Games line? And, I know it’s wayy late, but what did you think of Catching Fire? I personally liked it much more than the first one, and am actually looking forward to the next one!
