My right eye has been sleepy all day. Every time I blink I pretty much fall asleep on just that one side for a little bit. Not that the left eye refuses to participate or anything, but since I was at my desk trying to (reluctantly) adult, I figured Nap Mode: Level EXPERT would not be the most logical choice. Cuz HR is lurking people, let us never forget. And in that case, I will sit here comatose, but with one eye open, like a good girl.
I’ve never been much of a rule-breaker anyway (i.e., super boring person). Because of my almost OCD-like need to follow direction, I ask a lot of questions. I need to know specifically what you mean and how you mean it, probability of alternate scenarios, and I hope to Baby Jesus you have a FAQ sheet with bullet points, cuz imma need that too, prolly.
And don’t even ask me to veer off schedule and improvise anything. I don’t believe in a gray area or room for interpretation. If a recipe calls for a dash of pepper, I’m spending the next 18 hours googling how much a dash is. And don’t tell me to cook the fish until it flakes easily with a fork cuz that’s not a proper cooking term. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE EXACTLY?!, is the actual question, and I get the hives trying to figure it out.
In other words, if someone doesn’t invite me to a party soon, well do you see what you’re missing?! DO YOU?
While we all sit and contemplate, let’s look at pretty things! I have two new polishes from Glisten & Glow to show you today. They are part of a duo to celebrate the anniversary of the birth of Glisten & Glow, a very worthy party idea if I ever heard one, you know, in case you need an excuse to drink a wine cooler on a Thursday. See below:
Back on March 10, 2010 a dream came true and Glisten & Glow became a real life thing. And without any warning whatsoever, every single one of us nail polish nerds fell in love. Seriously, how did we all function like humans before this indie business started? We were just polish robots with carts full of mainstream, zero fun, and cuticles that could poke an eye out, I’m guessing. Or at least I was anyway. So, God bless Glisten & Glow for all the spectacular pretties over the past 7 years. And for making my nails not look like a hobo. Amen.
First up is 7 Years and Glowing:
Mercy, it’s already started. Dadgummit. Are you sweaty? Cuz I’m sweaty.
This one is a teal linear holographic with sparkles of silver holo microglitters and flashes of blue and gold shimmers. It’s a beautiful, mermaid-y, ocean-y dreamboat, and you’re just gonna go ahead and throw it in the basket. Cuz I’m the boss of you, that’s why.
Then I stuck a big ole daylight lamp on top of it. And died a little:
Erlack! For real, that’s no joke legit. There’s no way you’re walking out of this blog without 27 bottles of this, MINIMUM.
Macro (aka, drool) time!
How unattractive do you look right now? ME TOO! Lolling tongues and drool buckets, everywhere.
Some nail art I did:
I was gonna do a mermaid mani but thought I’d do something unexpected. Not that this is particularly revolutionary or anything, but I’ve had these Twinkled T scribble vinyls for ages and figured why not?
Why not, indeed. I like it lots.
Last half of the duo is Seventh Heaven:
If there’s anything more complimentary to a teal green mani, it’s gotta be a coral one. Clearly someone knows how to do nail polish. I’m not saying it’s Glisten & Glow, but it’s probably Glisten & Glow.
So this one is a light coral creme holographic with sparkles of silver holo microglitters and subtle purple and blue shimmers. It’s very springy and fresh and totally work appropriate and Queen of England-approved, you know, in case you two are having sandwiches later. As happens from time to time.
The shimmers in here are delicate and a bit shy. Below is a shot with the daylight bulb so you can see them better:
I dunno guys. I kinda want to lick this one. Cuz it looks like it might taste like a peach. I mean, I know it probably doesn’t, maybe not even close. But if there’s a chance it won’t kill me, I can’t say I wouldn’t at least lay my tongue near it at the minimum. It’s hanging out of my mouth right now anyway, sooo …
I’m not crazy, you’re crazy.
In case you’re not convinced properly:
Took this shot directly under the lamps so you can see those shimmers real good. Seriously like a peach, I’m sure of it.
Some nail art I like:
A pretty simple design, but thought I’d play off those purple shimmers by adding a bit of purple stamping. Kinda cute, yes? I mean, you’ve seen me do worse I’m certain of it. Cuz you’ve read this blog before.
I used the Uber Chic Beauty 14-02 plate in case you’re curious.
The round up:
Launch date for this duo is Monday, March 20 at 9am EST so you have PLENTY of time to get your priorities straight. Glisten & Glow up top, people! Here’s what you need to know:
Both polishes in a bundle retails for $13
If you want to buy just a single bottle – although, WHY?!, is the actual question – cost is $7
Click here for shopping! Be sure to pick up a few others while you’re there cuz honestly, what other choice is there? It’s Jill’s anniversary and we need to thank her properly. And then go buy me a Starbucks cuz I help you make good decisions.
