What’s on the Nails –Swatch time! Swatched Essie Damsel in a Dress that was 50% off at Peninsula Beauty Store. I used Nailtek II just as a base and 2 coats of Julep Freedom this time to minimize shrinkage. Already chipping, and it was streaky when putting it on. So, meh. The color is amazing, but other than the brush it was somewhat of a pain. Probably going to use it as a base for some glitter polishes.
*WARNING, MATURE AUDIENCE ONLY!!!* Book talk – Theme for this book talk: Science! Bonk by Mary Roach amazon.com/Bonk-Curious-Coupling-Science-Sex/dp/0393334791/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1364683751&sr=1-1&keywords=bonk
Mary Roach makes science fun! Warning, this is definitely going to make you blush and laugh at the same time. You may want to warn people around you on your commute. This book reminds me very much of my friend Listy because when we were first getting to know each other, she told me about this book.
