I went to the store yesterday and guess what I saw - a brand new and completely untouched display of Essence Re-Mix Your Style Trend Edition collection. I often don't know what to buy/not to buy when I find myself in front of the TE display. That's why I made a list this time. I wasn't completely sure about the Pop Top coat, so I just left it in the store. This is what I got:
Essence Stairway to Heaven + Waking Up in Vegas
I must admit I wasn't completely sure about the Stairway to Heaven nail polish. It looked very dark and I don't need another ''is it black or what'' shade. It turned out to be an OK dark blue. I'm not too crazy about it, but I don't have anything similar in my stash. The closest color is L'Oreal's Emperor, but it's still quite different from Stairway to Heaven. Waking Up in Vegas, on the other hand, is something we've seen before. Looks like Sally Hansen's Hidden Treasure. Anyway, here are the color drops.
I tried layering Waking Up in Vegas over my Chuck manicure. It looked OK, but I think it will be better over some darker shade.
All the shopping made me hungry and tired. I gathered my last ounce of strength and made myself a pizza. Nihrida style - tomato, ham, onion, pepper, cheese and oregano. Yum!
I've been a good (or bad) girl and watches a lot of True Blood episodes. I'm at the 4th season now. And I'm confused. More on that some other time... I finally found the cheese flavored pop corn - it's bad for me in so many ways, but I really needed to taste it again.
I managed to finish the fourth book by George R. R. Martin A Feast for Crows. I have to say it was my least favorite from the ones I've read so far. It wasn't boring, much is happening in this book, but I found it hard to go through. I also don't like the fact I'll have to wait for the 6th book to see what happens with the characters. I would've like it better if Martin just ''cut'' the story in half. All the books are connected and continued anyway. Now I have to wait for the 5th book to come to our library and I bet I'll have to wait for a long time.
