Nail Polish Lottery Club–Week 84

Two weeks ago I wore Normani a lovely nude polish from Zoya, and honestly I didn’t want to take it off… as a matter of fact it’s still on my feet. sigh… this was a pretty straight forward removal since it wasn’t glitter… what I didn’t pick off my self (I know bad habit) I used a bit of polish to remove the rest.

Sinful Colors…. I love it! I love that I can get a good polish for a good price (cause you know I’m cheap). Best time of the year is that 99 cents sale that they have at Walgreens every few months…so naturally this beauty got picked up, it wasn’t until a few months later when I was looking at my collection that I felt like I had already had something that was very similar (I generally don’t buy a polish if it’s similar to one that I already own). So I had to take a closer look at the polishes  20140805_162532Sinful Color’s Hottie (center), Different Dimension’s Think of All The Other Fellas I Haven’t Kissed (right) and Super Star (left)  and after swatching I realized that none of them look alike.. probably should have did that in the beginning. (swatches had no base color and were two coats each)

Super Star was apart of the Winter Shimmers collection in 2012. it’s  a super pretty blue jelly with purple and aqua glitter… it’s also notoriously difficult to photo so that you can see all the facets of the nail polish.  As you can see from my swatch above this is totally a nail polish that SinfulColorsuperStaryou can wear alone, maybe three or for coats and your good to go (hopefully you have a good glue base so you don’t have to worry about scrubbing you nails (and possibly drying the nail and your cuticles in the process). But I really wanted to add a bit of depth, so I paired this polish with Zoya’s Neve (which was my week 48 pick) and used Super Star as a glittery topper…. sparkles galore!!

The application of this polish was a breeze, I was a little confused because some people were 20140729_124701saying that that the second coat was a little bit tacky, and at first I assumed that happens when you use the polish as a stand alone (since I didn’t swatch until after I painted my nails) . But I20140729_152103 didn’t have any issues when swatching, so I’m gonna make that up either to old polish or a user error. I really liked this polish, and I loved how it adds a little something special to an already fantastic polish. My only issue with this polish is that the camera can’t grab all the awesomeness. (I did spend quite a bit of time twirling my fingers in the sunlight….)

So I searching for a particular Sinful Colors polish and I came across this little gem, does anyone remember what the old SC bottles look like? I had no idea that the company had been around for so long… take a look at this

Like every model, you have to get them when they are fresh, and in the case of this model. It’s best to photograph her right before she’s settling down in my her bed, for mid-day nap. I really like the way this color looks against her black fur…and think that when the time comes this would look quite striking on her as a color, but alas Tsuki enjoys sparkles that are pink…although she didn’t seem that impressed with the color, I remain so. This polish was fantastic and I’m giving it a 9 out of 10… the only reason it’s not getting a perfect score was because I couldn’t really photograph it properly on my nail (and honestly that’s not the nail polish’s fault.

Until Next Time…

Missing Sequels

 

Writing Prompt – If you could create a sequel to one favorite (standalone) movie, which would it be? How would it build on the original?

I love movies and sequels can be a tricky thing, there rarely is any middle ground, they can either be really good or really bad, but more than anything they are made to get more money out of the audience… so before I begin with my answer let me tell you what I thought was the worst sequel in my opinion is Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, the original was sheer perfection and it left that audience perplexed and wanting more (which is why this hideous sequel was made). Best Movie Sequel… hands down are Toy Story 2 and Toy Story 3.  Although you can watch them as stand along the three of them together give the audience the complete story of Andy and his toys (plus the ending of 3 made me cry)

Now if I were to create  a sequel it would be to the mini series  Lost in Austen. More than likely you haven’t heard of it, so let me give you a quick over view : Lost in Austen is a four-part 2008 British television series for the ITV network, written by Guy Andrews as a fantasy adaptation of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.  Amanda, an ardent Jane Austen fan, lives in present day London with her boyfriend Michael, until she finds she’s swapped places with Austen’s fictional creation Elizabeth Bennet through a portal in her bathroom. to join the Bennet family

In the end (spoiler alert) Amanda and Darcy, Elizabeth returns to Modern London to contue her job as a nanny, and finally Jane and Bingley get married and plan to live in America (well that is after she divorces her husband Mr. Collins, and George Wickham makes a play for Caroline (who is an lesbian)

Why would a sequel be useful…. this story is hardly finished… naturally the Jane Austen portion is…. I would like to know how Elizabeth acclimates to modern London, does she find love? Will Amanda be able you go back to Modern London and how will her absence be explained to her family? Wickham wooing a lesbian is comedy enough, and finally the misadventures of the Bingley’s in the new world…. Since Carrie Brownstein is currently penning a movie based on the mini series it will be interesting if she goes beyond where the miniseries left off. Although it’s not everyone’s cup of tea for a Janeite like me, it makes me tingle.

Until Next Time….
