"Memories of the light in your eyes."







C  & C California top. Romeo & Juliet Couture vest. Joe's Jeans. Zigi Soho boots.
Marc Jacobs necklace. American Eagle and Nordstrom rings. Revlon nail polish in Minted.







I'm currently going through one of my nail polish phases (where I normally buy and use nail polish religiously for a couple of months and then get lazy and go sans nail polish for the rest of the year), and I'm currently in love with Revlon Nail Enamel in Minted.  I absolutely love the color.  I actually bought the polish because I thought it was the same shade as the Tiffany blue; unfortunately, when I painted my nails and compared them to my Tiffany bags and boxes, the nail polish has too much green in them so the shade is off.  Still, I find the color refreshing.  :o)

As for the nail polish itself, I give it a 3.5/5 rating.  I like Revlon for the fact that their polishes are
DBP, toluene and formaldehyde free, but I don't like how runny it was, the slight bubbles, and how it takes at least a couple of hours for 2 coats of the nail polish to fully dry.  The polish is lasted me about 9 days before noticeable chipping. 

On a side note, I've been getting back in touch with my arty side.  Here is a picture I painted for a friend (it's Peter the Panda from Phineas and Ferb)It's pretty simple but was rather fun to create.  :o)




I've made February my month to focus on art so hopefully I'll be posting more pictures of art pieces later.

AHH what a great painting!! You're great! I love the pics and you look beautiful in them!!
I go through that exact nail polish phase-loving the mint green. For some reason I have been eager for a blue-I don't know why.

Gorgeous landscape back there! I love the minted nailpolish- I wanna try that shade some time but wondering if it'll clash with the clothes I'm wearing (I only get my nails done once every month.. or other...) And keep up with the drawing and art!
