Ok, this blog title was my attempt at being funny and witty. Both of which I am neither lol. Oh well, I tried!
Anyhoo, I feel the need to apologize for my recent MIA-ishness for the past month from this blog. It wasn't really intentional. You know the old cliche saying "when it rains, it pours", that's kind of what happened to me. I had a lot of stuff going on in October IRL that kept me busy, then my ailing grandpa took a turn for the worse and we lost him. I'm still kind of trying to cope with that, but some days are better than others. Today is a better day, we'll see about tomorrow. He was one of a kind and truly one of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I miss him and think of him every day.
Alright, enough sad stuff...no one wants to read a depressing blog as far as I know! I just wanted to offer an explanation for my absence. Now that I am back in the thick of it, I am SUPER excited to share with you today's mani! Black Hole Sun (BHS) is a gorgeous franken that my lovely pal, Jenny, of Lavish Layerings fame, made/gifted to me for my birthday last month. It's a tough polish to describe, let me tell you. BHS has these neat flecks of blue, pink and yellow with tiny holographic glitter bits mixed in. It looks stunning in different light and different angles.
Here is 2 coats of BHS over 1 coat of American Apparel's Hassid (black creme one-coater, so great!):
And because I couldn't leave well enough alone, I decided to throw Rainbow Honey's The Worst Possible Thing that my wonderful friend, Daphne, had gifted me for my birthday. I guess you could call this a birthday gift mani of sorts...ha! Also, Daphne is an incredible professional makeup artist, check her out on FB!!!
Here is 1 coat of The Worst Possible Thing over my BHS mani:
Ahhhhh it's so sparkly!!! *stares* The Worst Possible Thing is a beautiful mix of teeny tiny lilac, baby blue and holographic hex glitters and a few square glitters thrown in for good measure. This polish would look amazing over infinite things.
Please excuse the two (obviously) differently-lighted pictures of this mani. The first picture of BHS was taken in natural daylight, however, the second picture featuring The Worst Possible Thing was taken under a lamp since it is now winter in Canada and the sun sets WAY too early for my liking now. Sorry.
All in all, I adore both of these polishes! Application on BHS was very smooth as was the application on The Worst Possible Thing. The Worst Possible Thing is the kind of glitter that does not need to be dabbed on. It swiped on quite easily and smoothly, so that's always nice.
I just want to say a huge thank-you for reading my super long and super overdue blog post!! Also, welcome to all of my new blog followers, I am very excited to have you here! If you have a free moment, check out my guest blog post on my BFF's blog: Spit & Polish, where I review some Glimmer by Erica polishes I recently purchased!
Have a great evening, everyone!! <3
