Something about this month has sparked a need for reflective flakes in my nail polishes. There was a time where ZOYA's "CLOE" was atop all of my polishes, then a little love affair with essie's "shine of the times" was rekindled (mainly because of the lovely lady behind "sleepandwater"), and now this. THIS beauty came into my life. And after the last UO nail polish mishap? This was a much needed manicure.
"MYSTIC" renewed my faith in Urban Outfitters polishes. Which is super important because they're at a great price point (more often than not they're on sale 2 for $8) and, let's be honest, I love the look of the bottles. Sturdy cube shaped glass with super soft rubberized applicator? Sign me up and get ready to listen to me sing "I'm A Slave 4 U".
"MYSTIC" is a royal purple base with rainbow reflexive flakes that shine on the surface. The flakes pack a much greater visual punch in the bottle compared to on the nail. They're borderline invisible unless you're looking for the magic which, to some, may be a major con but to me it's subtly beautiful. Nuances like these can be the spice in life if you let them…
which is super fitting for me at the moment since I just got diagnosed with pneumonia! Yay!!
Haha weren't expecting that little jump in conversation there, were you? Well, neither was I; just as I was about to finish up this post I knew that the pain in my chest I had been feeling all weekend wasn't about to get any better—in fact it was getting much worse. So I skippity-doo-dah'ed over to the hospital (if only I had actually been so joyous and graceful) and seven hours of laying in the hallway (all of the rooms were full) later here we are: pneumonia.
The one good thing to come out of this is that now I've got some drugs to make me all sleepy-happy-comfy for the first time in almost a week. I'm so excited I could cry… which I'll happily do on my pillow tonight as I drift off to sweet drug-induced dreaming.
So excited to cuddle up with this fluff booger!
How are you all?
Well, I hope? Any pneumonia-laden companions?
