I just want to get on my soapbox for a minute and rant about one of my most prominent grievances: I hate commuting. I live about an hour from my school and go three days a week. I take night classes because 1. I function better at night and 2. Traffic. There is traffic going to school, but my school is towards the city.. and everyone commutes home from the city at night so I don't have as much traffic to deal with if I went earlier in the day. I feel like I spend soooooooooooo much time in the car. I take double period classes, so they're 2 hours and 45 minutes but I'm seriously out of the house for about 6 hours because of the commute, parking and the walk to class. That is all. I could rant for days, though, you know me, lol.
Another update is I have reached the 250 follower mark (and uh, a little beyond, too!) and I intended to hold a giveaway when I reached that milestone. I mentioned in my Blogger Appreciation Giveaway that there would be another one soon. Plans are still a "Go" as far as I'm concerned, I just need to figure out what to giveaway. I promise - I haven't forgotten!
On to the nails, China Glaze Pull Me Close:
The mani I have for you today is an utter disappointment. Yea, it looks cool but ugh.. it was such a pain in the ass. This is a one handed mani, meaning I never did my right hand due to complications. To start, I don't think magnetic nail polish is for those with a deep C-curve. Mine is pretty serious:
Well, that's a weird angle. But it is hard to get a flat magnet to work with such curvy nails, ya know? I know I know, roll the magnet with the natural curve. It took about 4 tries per nail to get an "acceptable". No base color, so it didn't take as long as it could've. Luckily I think most magnets are opaque enough to be used on their own.
I couldn't get the chevrons or star to look decent so stripes it was. It was time consuming and polish was wasted. I love the effect but I couldn't do it on my right hand, no matter what I tried. I ended up giving this away to a friend a long with my Layla Magnetics.
Such a damn shame! All of the attempts on my right hand looked like my pinky or thumb; just really weak. My middle finger looks the best, but just to remind you that was about attempt number five. I don't think its the company's fault because I had the same problems with the Laylas. Oh well, one trend I suppose I won't get to relish in is all!
