As in oozing with germs, not as in totally awesome. Well I am totally awesome too, just a little less so from this bug I have that started as a sore throat and is now morphing into something that is sucking my will to live.
So yeah, if I’m quiet on twitter and here for the next few days, I’m not dead (or maybe I am?), just recovering. I feel rather whiny actually. I think that’s because I don’t really get sick often. It’s been a fair few months since I actually had anything even slightly resembling a cold – I take enough vitamins and supplements each day for a small military force. But something has somehow cracked my defences. I used to get sick all the time, but now I’m just really bummed that something has broken my healthy streak.
In short, I feel like doodie.
The Young Ones – Sick
My second favourite episode. Only trumped ever so slightly by Bambi.
Apologies in advance if I post some really weird entries in the next couple of days. It will probably be through a haze of some
really good shit pretty strong cold & flu drugs and I really can’t guarantee my total lucidity. But who knows, this may be fun.
Because we’re now in the realm of all things gross, I’m going to post some really ugly swatches for you. Bad colours, bad formula, shoddy nails. I’ve got some shockers. I’ll keep the pics small to keep you from clawing your eyeballs out.
Ruby Kisses Yellow & Maybelline Ocean Blue
Well the first one looks like pee. There’s no skirting that issue. The second one, if I remember correctly, that was like FOUR coats. It was still a streaky, horrible mess. Gross.
L’Oreal 834 & Sally Hansen Gilty Frost
I don’t think I have ever been as underwhelmed by a colour as I was by L’Oreal 834. It doesn’t even have a name and that somehow seems fitting. It’s the colour representation of an indifferent shrug. I have a name for it. Meh. L’Oreal Meh. The second one was an impulse market purchase that puzzles me to this very day. The formula is frosty and think, the colour stinks. Why did I buy it? There’s actually a comment on my flickr for this photo with a girl saying she really likes the colour and wants to know where she can get it. I can’t decide whether she’s being sarcastic with me or not.
Sally Hansen Cherry Creme & Zoya Mia
Yeah I have no idea. It’s not a Cherry colour. Heck, it’s not even a creme. Sally’s on drugs. I wonder if she’ll spare some. Also note that this photo was taken before I had the slightest clue about nail care, lighting or photography. Nail fail. Zoya Mia is an alright colour I guess, but seriously my nails were crappy as back then. It also pains me that my version of the “mannequin hands” phenomenon is fucking salmon. Why am I so pink?
I still have four and a half hours left of work. I think I’ll go breathe on everyone to amuse myself.
PS. Hope you’re all enjoying my St Patricks Day blog theme. :>>
