Aren’t you all super lucky! You’re getting a super recent nail color out of me because this is what I’m wearing on my day of birth. Yes, that’s today.
Okay, well, technically I put this on Tuesday night because my co-workers and I had Thai food on Wednesday. By the way, if you’re ever in Phoenix, I highly recommend two places for Thai food: Thai Basil (on University/Farmer) and Thai House (Shea/70th St.). The first is owned by one of the nicest ladies ever, they make a mean pad ga pao, and it’s our go-to Thai place at work. The second is one that BF and I went to and their panang curry is phenomenal. Plus they were playing the new Regina Spektor album so it was quite amusing.
Well, I wasn’t feeling too hot Tuesday and my body started to ache. Wednesday was ok in the morning, but as the day dragged on my hands got numb cause I was super cold (my lab is abnormally cold), and my body aches got worse. Let’s just say that Advil was my best friend. I think I had a small fever, which wasn’t the best. I think I even ripped off my flannel pj bottoms because I was sweating, lol. Look, I am very finicky when it comes to feeling hot and cold! I can’t even imagine me when I have hot flashes. Nope. Not looking forward to it.
Today, I am just full-blown sick. I’m sure my mom (who is a Vitamin C fiend) is very happy about that…shudder. I can just hear her now! Anyway, the BF is taking care of me today. He took me to our favorite Vietnamese place in Phoenix for lunch, and I ate quite a bit! I even managed to get a lot of knitting done today!
Some of my wonderful friends also sent me a super wonderful birthday package, which was totes awesome. I feel really grateful to have women like that in my life. <3
Raise Your Glass was released for the 175th anniversary of Holt Renfrew, a department store in Canada. I have never been in one, because I have never been to Canada. But this nail polish reminds me of the yearly anniversary stuff that Nordstrom’s gets. (i.e. Dior Shadow) You know, all my Canadian friends, one day I will go to Canada. Maybe to see a hockey game. Just not in Winnipeg. I don’t think you’ll ever see me in Winnipeg. ;) RYG is also named after that one Pink song, which I always found to be fairly “inspirational,” a la Lady Gaga “Edge of Glory,” but a little more cheesy.
This is two coats. So, er…I don’t know how to describe this. My boss pointed out that it looked like a jelly…but it was more opaque like a creme. So maybe it’s a crelly? I…really don’t like that word. It’s such a dumb word. But look! Tiny pink glitter! It’s darling!
Application was interesting. It was smooth and easy to clean up, but it left this gritty surface on my nails. It didn’t feel too gritty, though. I dunno. Gelous and SV took care of it, though.
To be honest, I don’t really know how up there Holt Renfrew is in terms of quality. Is it like a Nordstrom’s? Macy’s? Dillard’s? All I know is that when I went to their website, they carried Domino Jeans, which I own all of two pairs from them. I did not get them from HR, though. I instead got them on Fab. The company took their damn sweet time sending it to me, though. Three weeks! Three!! Sigh. To be honest, it was kind of worth it. They fit similar to Lucky’s, and I’ve found out that mid-rise to most women = high-rise on me. Er, yeah. I dunno.
Whoops. No photo of my straightened out fingers. Oh well. It’s early. Also, you may have noticed that I am wearing fingerless gloves…it was a little cold yesterday morning. :P
Thanks for reading!
