Hey dudes. Wow, only two entries last week! Slack much? *kicks own ass* I’ll try and be a little more productive this week, although I do have a lot on so we will see how that works out!
Zoya Reverie Collection
Today I have for you some of the Zoya Reverie collection, I didn’t get all of them and I’ll be honest straight off the bat – they didn’t exactly rock my socks off. However, I don’t not like them. They are just “good”.
Gwin is probably my favourite of the bunch. The gold flash is what sucked me in, I will admit it. I don’t know what it is about orange shades, but I just really like them. Even when they don’t like me quite as much. I’m like that sad kid in high school following around that popular kid, hoping that one day, one day they will like me. But alas, Zoya Gwin looks in my direction in disdain and only talks to me when she wants to copy my math homework. *sigh*
Reece is SO pretty in the bottle but boy howdy does it NOT work on me. I couldn’t quite get the green flash to show up on the nail, sadly. Perhaps if I could have this would be a little more wearable for me. I wanted to like it so much, but I think even that midtone shade of pink is totally wrong for me. Honestly, it’s not a very me colour to begin with. Maybe I need to give it another shot. Maybe top it with some glitter. I’m hoping we can be friends, Reece. I really am.
Everyone’s fave from this collection is Adina. Well except for me that is. I like it a lot though. It just wasn’t what I was expecting. Unlike Reece, the green in Adina is REALLY strong. I blurred the photo a little to get it to show up a little more. The downside – I’m not sure if the lilac base is dark enough for me and its pretty sheer. I can’t remember whether this is three or four coats – and there is still a lil VNL. All the other Reverie’s only took your standard two coats. When I was a kid, I had a BFF named Jenna. She lived on Adina St. I don’t know why I never forgot that. I wonder if she’s on facebook…
For some reason my Zoya Lana has no label. And I’m not talking bottom sticker with the name. Zoya isn’t printed on this bottle at all. Pretty weird. Let’s hear it for quality control!! Well I like Lana a lot but I was thinking it was going to look way more different to Gwin. I’m not even sure that sentence is gramatically correct, but lets continue. The base colour is just way too similar, even though Lana is darker. They really should have thrown a green with purple flash or green with blue flash into this collection. Dark plum with fuschia flash? How do you spell Fuschia? I think I’m getting it wrong here.
So I find out at 6pm on Saturday night that there was a Stargate Convention in Sydney that day. I was definitely bummed as not only did I deny the BF his chance of meeting MacGyver, but I also missed out on meeting Connor Trinneer.
Yes yes, closet trekkie. The Flan wasn’t in attendance, otherwise I would have been going straight to the airport and hopping the first flight to Melbourne to attend the Sunday one south of the border. Nixxy would have had to put me up for the night. I’m sure we would have had cake. Damn, that would have been fun if the weather down in Vic wouldn’t have killed me. So instead, I drank heavily and ended up going to bed at 5am after a marathon game of “Shoot, Shag or Marry” with some friends. I tell you, NO ONE should have to choose between Slimer, The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man or Michaelangelo (yes, the turtle). I have sick friends.
Speaking of which, shout out to Nixx and Jacie who I know were hit by the freak Melbourne storms. I also hope that EveryShadeofPINK is okay too along with all my other Victorian blogging buddies. Stay safe and dry, peeps!
In other news, I’m pretty sure I have finally worked out what I want to do with my life. Not giving anything away, but I’ll be posting more as I gather more info and find out how viable this choice is. I’m also planning an overseas trip, and contemplating another one in 2011 as well as going back to study when I get back. It’s Monday, which blows by definition, but I sit here at my desk feeling pretty good. I feel like I have stuff to look forward to, changes to be made and a light at the end of the tunnel. The shackles around my ankle chaining me to this desk grow weaker by the second. :awe:
