Milani: Shady Gray

HIYEE! :D Wow, so yesterday totally sucked balls. LOL Today started shaping up to be a million times better around 12:08am so that's really something, huh? Almost deliberate. Which prompted my decision to cleanse the house and do a little negativity reversal and even though I do still have to go to the mall for a smudge stick I always feel better having a solid plan. While I was still mopey I decided to go ahead and finish off my Milani collection (for now?) and swatch Shady Gray to match my mood.



Two coats, and this one behaved just as well as the other two. Which was kind of a relief after the Chyna fiasco. I even did a little touching up after a spazzy moment during cleanup and I don't think you can tell at all, can you?



Up near my cuticle? No? I think that has to be a big ol' point in favor of these texture polishes. The Milani ones, at least. You can patch a spot and it just blends in with the rest of the polish. No weird lumps or streaks telling on you. ;) I don't know why it's looking sparkly, though. I think it might be an optical illusion from the matte-ness.

"But Lizzy! I thought you were going to wear Sharon for the South Park game release?" Well, that was two parts to yesterday's suck-fest. The game release date was pushed back to at least April (thanks a bunch THQ...) and I didn't get my Zoyas! WHAT?! I was in tears (yes, literally) when I checked Zoya's Terms of Service and read the part where they're not responsible if a package doesn't get to you (I'm assuming especially if it's marked as delivered). So I reached out to facebook and a couple of very kind, supportive ladies assured me that it's not unusual for a package to be marked as delivered and not show up for a day or two. So I'm giving it 'til the end of the week before I give up hope on ever seeing them. See, our daytime "special delivery" driver is... I'll say not near as awesome as our regular mailman. That guy kicks ass and will sit in the shade as long as he can waiting for me if he needs a signature. If not he knows our dog is a terrier (and stays indoors) and that the sign is just for legal reasons and will come in and leave packages on the file cabinet next to the door. What's that? Why do we have a file cabinet outside? Cuz there's no place to put it inside, obviously. LOL Anyway, it is my fervent hope that the daytime person got lazy or spazzed out and that my normal guy will bring me my preciouses in good time. Because the other alternative is that my shitty new ghetto ass neighbors intercepted it; in which case they are lost. In the case of Sharon probably lost forever because as of last night it was not on Amazon.

*ahem* What was I talking about? Oh yeah! Polish. hehehe Okay, T.Lillian mentioned the Revlon duochromes and I decided to not be lazy and found the link to check them out. Click Here for that. Color me spoiled, but I think I already have some of those. Gold looks like Eye Candy's Liquid Gold and Tanzanite looks like Sexy And You Know It. Pink Quartz is remding me of China Glaze's No Plain Jane (which I haven't swatched yet :p) or Swanky Silk and Cobalt looks like Want My Bawdy.... If I see these I think I will have to pick up Topaz (my birthstone!) and Amethyst. If I find myself overburdened by money I'll grab some possible dupes for comparison, but Revlon always seems expensive in person.... *shrugs* Oh dang there was something else.... OH YEAH! So I was checking Walmart.com to see if they had the new Hard Candy polishes up yet (they do not) thinking I could spare some SwagBucks to get the whole set delivered (oh I so would!) and when they didn't I went window shopping at Sephora.com again and saw new Nails Inc! "Feathered Polishes". What?! Vampy Varnish has swatches of three of them there. She didn't use a base color, but I did for Garden Galaxy which has the same kind of tiny bar glitters and I said in that post it looks like flocking in real life. So... those are added to my Sephora haul wishlist. Which... if I don't get my Zoyas I guess I'll have to have shipped to my mother-in-law's house... *facepalm*

Two more quick things! We went to Walmart for an industrial bucket for under the sink and my wonderful hubby offered to cheer me up with some polish. :) The other thing was about the only good thing to happen yesterday and it was a Sims related victory!



How cool is that!? The Supernatural expansion pack came with a jelly bean plant. You eat a jelly bean and different, random, magical effects happen to your Sim. That is what a ghost that died from eating jelly beans looks like. Yeah, I did that on purpose. He was old and I was tired of looking at him and now he's the prettiest ghost in the cemetery. lol There's only about a 2% chance of death so I was pretty excited to get that after his 3rd or 4th day of non-stop bean eating.

Tomorrow's Wednesday! I'm particularly excited because I'm going to finally finish off my Sally Hansens!! Possibly for good because I just never buy them... Except for In The Spotlight... oy. I really need to re-attempt that greyscale ombre. :p Uhm.... I think that's finally it. (aw, Jet's having puppy dreams hehehe) Going to catch up on some emails before we go pick up the University expansion (which is still being released today) and space out on Sims for the rest of the day. Take care, y'all! Hope everyone's having a great week. :D
