A bumpy ride with Revlon Hazy

Posted on

Ugh. Ugh. UGH! I hate when a fantastic nail polish is destroyed by bubbles. I hate when any nail polish is destroyed by bubbles actually, because it makes me want to chuck them at people in the streets…

OK so that last part may be a result of rage issues. But the rest of it is true! Especially if it’s a polish I haven’t worn yet. It leaves a bad taste in my mouth and the innocent little lacquer usually suffers and spends the rest of it’s days forgotten in a drawer. So I’m trying not to let this insane buildup of bubbles (most likely caused by the A/C in our apartment and the nearly empty, thick as molasses base coat I used) taint my first taste of Hazy that I got.

If you have a weak stomach for sad manis, please stop scrolling and carry on with your day. If not, continue on, but please try to contain your horror.

UGH

Not so bad from this angle. A nice soft grey creme that pulls blue on me (thanks yellow undertones!) But just wait…

UGH.

WHY?!

This colour, as you can see, is from Revlon’s Top Speed line. The formula was a breeze to work with and this is two easy coats. The Top Speed polishes don’t actually dry at “top speed” (my skin dries out faster after a shower, than this nail polish does) but they aren’t agonizingly slow. I also picked it up at Dollarama so I can’t complain too much, even if it were a lousy polish. Now that the weather is rapidly cooling, I will have to take this out of the drawer and give it another go.

If you get a chance, check it out! All polishes deserve a second chance!

Liebster award! And updates…and apologies

HI! So…yeah. I disappeared again. I am sorry readers and followers. Without going into much detail about myself (yawn), I struggle with moods and anxiety. I won’t use the word depression because that is a real problem not to be taken lightly. But I do actually have an anxiety/personality disorder. And an unstressful job that I make stressful because that is what I do.

So. The lovely Ashley┬ápleasantly came from nowhere and nominated me for the Liebster Award. I’m not entirely sure what that even means, but I was excited none the less. I struggled to find people to nominate that hadn’t already been nominated and sadly came up short. Which is sad because the questions I was asked were so interesting! Lame, I know, but I love hearing what other people have to say about their nail polish stash! It makes me feel a bit better about my hoarding collecting. So I will do the copout thing and answer the questions, extending the nomination to anyone reading this with under 200 followers. That much I know. You have to be a nail polish blog with under 200 followers! Whee!! I qualify. So here are my answers to the questions Ashley was awesome enough to come up with!

1. How may nail polishes do you own? Do I have to give an exact number? Because it makes me want to cry. Probably around….*mumbles* 600 (including frankens!)
2.What is your favorite nail polish of all time? Favourite nail polish colour of all time? I LOVE Sally Hansen Blue Me Away because I love blue and that colour is a WHAM! POW! IN YOUR FACE blue. Favourite nail polish brand/company? Color Club or Wet N Wild.
3.What is your favorite season? Fall
4. How much $$$$ would you spend on your favorite nail polish? 20-25 bucks a bottle. But it would have to be a last resort because DAMN. That is a dinner right there.
5. How do you store your polish? I use plastic three drawer storage towers. Kind of like small Helmers or Melmers.
6. How often do you paint your nails? Every day or two. Work destroys a good paint job
7. Do you ever pick off your polish? *hangs head in shame* All the time. BUT IT IS A REALLY BAD HABIT AND YOU SHOULD NOT DO IT
8. How did you get started with nail blogging? I started off reading blogs to keep up with nail trends and colours, because I didn’t want to miss another holographic movement! Then I realized that I have nail polish. And a camera. And the internet. And thus, a blog was born. I also use it to justify my copious amounts of polish.
9. What is your favorite fall nail polish? Right now? Anything duochrome. I can’t explain why.
10. What do you think is going to be the biggest fall nail trend this year? Er….textured nails! Like flocking powder? I don’t know. It depends where you are
11. What is your cutest nail design?? Cookie Monster. Hands down. Uh…no pun intended. His fuzzy little face and his googly eyes on my nails are still one of my favourite designs!

Thanks again Ashley for nominating me! I love your work!

PS. My updates: FOUR of my nails broke so I am back to supernubs! I’ll see if I can manage with old pictures…but I doubt it hahahaha
