Yes, I'm hopeless hehe. A friend asked me to find her a matte top coat. I did, and offered to buy it for her and I ended up buying these (click pic to enlarge and see the label properly) for me! Note to self, feign ignorance when asked where to get a polish or something. LOL!
Opened the box (while at the office), got excited to try the Matte Magic.
Still with "Who the Shrek are You" in my nails, I used China Glaze Matte Magic on top.
And when I got home, I tried CND Effects in Jade Sparrkle. I layered it on my nails (2 coats of OPI, 2 coats of Seche, then China Glaze matte magic, and then CND Effects! Imagine that! Excuse the dry hands!
Wore this polish from Thursday night to Sunday evening. No chipping, just minimal tip wear considering I'm done doing the laundry and a few dishwashing chores!
Got these babies last Thursday. Come Friday, I ended up buying another two polishes. Again, note to self, do not go to Watson's when you're stressed!
And oh, I went somewhere in QC last Wednesday and grabbed two books, simply because I'm impatient to wait for them to be available at our book club and the price is cheap for brand new books at P160 each, beat that! Afaik, brand new pocketbooks retail at around P300 each. At St. Francis Square (near Megamall), a 2nd hand book costs somewhere around P180 (a lot of creases at the sides already) and P200 and up for books in mint condition.
I'm originally a Judith McNaught fan and I love all her books before she ventured into romance/mystery novels. She doesn't write much, which made me read her books more than 10x!!! My favorite, Paradise and Whitney My Love, I read around 15 or 20 times I think... One day, I decided to try other authors (i.e., Johanna Lindsey, love her books too) and when I chanced upon one of Julia Quinn's books (a part of the Bridgerton series) I got hooked and she's one of my favorite writers now!
there's more! although I'm done reading those authored by Johanna Lindsey and Lisa Kleypas.
me and my polishes,
