So I had my cow-mooooo nails for one day, and then remove them, cos I am fickle, and I like to change my nail colors. I also can't wait to cut off my nails, so I can type and text without having to poke at the screen or hit so noisily at the keyboard. I also can't wait to try out the funky Shrek colors. And so here we have both the Shrek and Fiona colors.
Recap of the colors:
Shades from Forever 21 ($11). This has the 'feel' of that Grey Ant oversized status (it's really the name) shades which I was sort of lemming. For $11, it is so easy to just wear them for fun! Love the thick frames, and the largeness of the shades.
Some comments on the Shrek colors, and which I am sure you have read about from Temptalia and Scrangie, is that the consistency of these colors seem a bit rubbish, for all the vibrant colors you see in the bottle, they apply rather thinly and streaky. What you see in these pictures, I applied a thin coat of China Glaze White Out as a base (thanks to Amy for the tip) to make the color more true and opaque. Then this is followed by 3 or 4 coats of the colors. They are certainly bright and vibrant once you applied enough for the true color to show up, and definitely something for the short nails only (IMO of course).
Also did a little shopping at TOPSHOP today and got this $13 ring... it has a faux Victorian style to it, a little tacky and totally fun to wear. I intend to combine this with a few other fine (as in skinny band rings) gold rings in my stash.. and maybe show you the final results if I show some OOTD over the weekend.
And also at TOPSHOP, I bought this tee on sale ($39). This is in size 12, and I prolly will wear a sports bra inside, cos of the large armholes and also I think this looks better with a 'flatter' chest area. LOL. And well, if I need to cover my pale as hell arms, I will throw on a light cardi.
Yup, that's all, and thanks for looking :)
