Metallic Monday & Hair Stuff

*stretches* I should have taken a nap earlier when I had the chance. :p Took my car in for an oil change (and only about 10k miles behind schedule) and had to replace the cabin air filter. Bah! Stupid car. I coulda gotten polish...

It's hard to tell sometimes if a certain color is going to be truly metallic or if it's some weird jelly concoction. So today is going to be the final Metallic Monday. Aw! :( S'okay. I'm sure I'll get another magnetic eventually, even if I never end up with anymore of these fabulous chrome finishes. The first of the last is a lovely called Garnet Chrome:

Such a shiny metallic finish that my camera struggled with the close-up! XD

Second last is Amethyst Chrome which is a lovely lavendar color.

I got bored and decided to try out some metal-on-metal dotting action.

Almost got them all lined up proper. That also marks the last of my "Golden Oldies" polishes. I could give them back to my mom, but she'd just lose them. ;) Hey, don't give me that look! I've told her many times she can borrow whatever polish she wants and I've even helped her with nail art. I'm not an ingrate. lol

Ok, onto the hair stuff so if that doesn't interest you, then bye! LOL *ahem* Ok, so I had my hair blonde-ish three months ago. It was ill-timed and I told myself I'd let it grow 'til my chat buddy came back. Gave me a solid date for root growth. Just to see. So anyways, I did hear back finally and had a chat and since the last time I straightened my hair I looked straight up like Garth off of Wayne's World (omg I'm old) and it felt time for a change. I grabbed "medium" brown and I should have gone for "dark" brown; also my hair is still fried from bleach. Which is the actual point of this.

*eek* Some mornings I wake up and it feels like straw and is sticking out every which way. I have found an amazing product that does absolute wonders for it, though.

See? Can you see? I can certainly feel a difference. That's why I'm bothering to bring it up in the first place.

Tresemme Split Remedy. It's not expensive, maybe $5-6; I don't spend that much on hair products. This is a leave-in treatment conditioner. It says it reduces up to 80% of split ends after 3 uses. With what I know about hair I'm not sure that's even possible if you actually wash your hair and don't trim it. :p However, it is an amazing leave-in conditioner that makes even my straw-fried hair silky soft and it does tame 80% of my frizz. Maybe closer to 50%, but that's still pretty great since it doesn't feel greasy or oily or stiff. Almost like actual hair! LOL

I don't know if I'm 100% happy with the color. Won't really know until I straighten it, I guess. Weird being brunette again. Uhm.... Okay. I'm rambling. I think tomorrow I'm going to work on some Pure Ice glitters. :D Hope everyone's week is off to a great start!


  1. I should try that. I have been using It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In and it's awesome, but it's a little spendy. I would love a drugstore one that worked just as well. My hair is naturally frizzy and straw-like too but now that I die it black, it's way healthier. Love the polish and your nails:)

    1. Thanks! :D Yeah, I found the Tresemme at the grocery store and it's definitely not that spendy. Hope you can find it and it works well for you. :)

  2. My mom has the same problem as you and doesn't bother much with her hair. I need to mention this to her since she's ALWAYS complaining about her hair.

    1. Good luck! Hope you can talk her into it. ;)


I love hearing from you!
