I'm moving apartments today. I'm leaving my lovely but expensive one bedroom in Hell's Kitchen to a cozy roommate situation in Fort Greene. I'm looking forward to the move and am hopeful me and my new roommate don't drive each other crazy.
I packed up my helmer - cosying all of my polishes into a jam packed 4 drawers (I'm super psyched to learn how much I've paired down my collection - just 4 drawers my god!) and lined everything with large, fluffy sheets of cotton that I had ordered from transdesign. Because of that, I haven't really had access to all of the polishes. I moved all of my nail polish treatments, topcoats and tools into a plastic shoebox. I put all of my minis into the box too because I was worried that they were too small for the tight yet protected squeeze I was going for in the packing of the helmer. So I've only had access to my minis. It's been pretty enlightening. I've already thrown out 3 of my frankens... just no.
Next in the bin is a tiny decant of OPI Glow that k2k sweetly sent me years ago. I tried it when she first sent it to me then I sent it into the darkness. The color is just way too close to mine. This was photographed after about a day wear, it was so close to my normal skin color I didn't actually notice all the tip wear until after I downloaded the macro shots. So sorry! Anyway, I've been mattifying everything the past month or so. I thought the effect with these super-shimmery polishes was kind of fun. It was still super glittery, just kind of like the dull side of a crinkled up piece of tinfoil.
OPI Glow wont be heading with me to Brooklyn, and she wont be missed.
