omg I'm a teen witch


Before I go on and on about my nails, I need to take a moment to say how proud I am of myself to have found this super kitschy retro velvet diary in the thrift store yesterday. In my head I was like OMG IT'S GONNA SIT ON MY DRESSER SO PRETTILY AND I'M GOING TO PRETEND I'M IN BYE, BYE BIRDIE!!

Whether or not I'm going to ruin it with my secretive gobbeldygook is something I have yet to think about

okay, now that that's out of the way,

I'm kinda excited since this is like, my first beauty review on my blog (!!)

This manicure. I love Sally Hansen.
I came across these nail polish strips in CVS tonight and nearly died of cool-overload. I got 'em, came home, and in 10 minutes my manicure was complete & it wasn't terribly complicated. I just had to take my time & be careful not to rip the strips as I pressed them onto my nails (btdubs, they're actually made from nail polish, these aren't decals)

They come in some other great patterns too like houndstooth and black lace (omg next!). Seriously suggesting anyone to go ahead & try these out & wear them as fabulously as they possibly can!

I was just about to ask what kind of nail polish you were wearing! Nail strips, huh?? They look absolutely awesome! I bet their less messier than normal nail polish too. Thanks for sharing :)
