Why hello there! Well, I am hereby guilty of having not blogged in well over a month, and here’s why…
For five weeks, I took a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, and high-tailed it to a little town in northern Quebec (Trois-Pistoles) to immerse myself in the French language. Without the luxury of bringing my beloved nail polish collection with me, or connecting to the internet whenever I so pleased (the horror, I know), blogging was…difficult. Hence, the lack of posts in recent weeks.
Oddly enough, I did still manage to learn something nail polish-related on this trip. Despite my best efforts to pack lightly, my materialistic self ended up bringing a bottle of polish with me. Initially, I was set on bringing one for each week, but I narrowed that crap down–no easy task, mind you.
In the end, I chose NYC’s Nolita’s Lavender (#265)
My thought process: spring-y colour, two coats, dries fast, no great loss ($1 at Wal-Mart).
As it turns out, I really should have brought more than one bottle with me. Four days into my trip, I was itching to switch out my purple nail disaster for anything. To my relief, there was a drugstore in Trois-Pistoles that sold nail polish, on sale to boot. And so my one bottle became four by the end of the first week (whoops). I could have easily made that ten bottles, but chose to suppress my shopaholic tendencies for once…
The latest editions to the MegRyann Nail Polish Collection:
Left to right: Essie‘s double breasted jacket; Sally Hansen‘s wedding glitters (110); Essie‘s fierce, no fear
Nothing mind-boggling new, but still very much loved.
Moral of the story: just bring the polish.
’til next time!
