Boy did I have a busy week! Finally it’s Friday and I have all day to catch up on my blog, get some homework done, and then I’m planning on making a very yummy dinner tonight! We’re a few days into March now, and getting closer and closer to spring. The next few days are supposed to actually feel like early spring weather! I had a few favorites this month that I won’t be able to live without in the future, and really helped me through this last month of winter.
Spring was here over the weekend, but has now receded back into the shadows, hopefully to return in a few weeks time. It felt so good to be out in the sunshine and feel the wind on my skin, but the fact is, it’s still winter. So instead of opting for a fun, bright color, once again I have gone with a dark shade to ride out the end of February. Can you believe it’s the end of February?
Butter London Black Knight is an amazing shade. The base is pure black, but it is packed with green, blue and pink shimmer. I think it is a much easier, and adult way to wear glitter. I love Butter London polishes for their uniqueness, but I have had so many problems with the formula. It is super gooey and hard to work with. Maybe I just have bad luck? There is something funny about the name “Black Knight”…imagine a night wearing sparkly armor!
I’m definitely a fan of keeping my nail polish seasonal. Bright pinks in the summer, warm reds in the fall. In the winter, I almost always stick to darker colors, they just seem to fit the mood better. This winter, I’ve been switching up my manicure a lot. These are some of the dark wintery colors I used a lot this winter.
5 of them are drugstore, which is pretty great too!
And it’s Monday again. Sigh. I feel like the past few weeks have just melted away into days of too much TV and freezing my ass off. I’m so tired of winter. I can’t take it anymore! This Monday, I couldn’t have chosen a better color to match my mood.
Revlon “Hot Chocolate” is dark brown, creme nail polish. I love Revlon nail polishes because they are good quality for a cheap price. I bought “Hot Chocolate” for a nail art design a while ago, but thought I’d see how it looked all over the nail. It’s dark, it’s boring, it’s….kind of how I feel these days.
As a makeup lover, I don’t always enjoy going a day or two not wearing make up. Weather here in PA has been cold, snowy, colder, then snowier. So I haven’t left the house much. If I’m just hanging around the house, I don’t need to put make up on, but come on, I love it!
These products are great for an easy Sunday look, that really could be worn any day of the week for a fresh, quick look. Add your favorite mascara, and you’re going to look fabulous!
