Layering Experiment: Barry M Red Black

I'm so sorry for abandoning my blog. I really, honestly intended to blog over the week but for some reason my laptop wouldn't connect to the wireless network at the house I stayed in so I couldn't even read anyone else's blogs unless I did it on my phone and the screen's pretty small on that thing.

I had a great Chinese New Year, lots of food, as usual. I had a few headaches because of the really hot weather coupled with my refusal to drink more water. I went to my uncle's house which is in a different state, a 2 hour drive from my house. There were a billion mosquitoes, which is why I'll be going to class with a LOT of pink spots on my legs and arms. Argh. Hate mosquitoes.

Back when I had Barry M Red Black on (seems like forever ago!), I tried layering a whole bunch of stuff on it. Some didn't work out (didn't take pictures of those), to the extent that my friend questioned it. And finally I tell you what the third mystery polish I bought was (somehow I still remember this). Nobody managed to guess what it was from this post.

First: multicolored glitters. The BeYu (left) looks nothing like the other two but since it had the same type of glitter in it, I thought I'd throw it in. Elianto Glitter Mixed (middle) was more dense than 17 Cosmetics Glitter Top Coat (right). Here is 1 coat of the Elianto and two of the 17.

The Elianto has more green and the 17 has more blue glitters in it.

I wanted to try something different, so I put China Glaze Matte Magic on half of each nail. I like it! I really want to call it schizo. But I think a more appropriate name would be dissociative identity disorder, am I right?

The polish nobody guessed was Nubar 2010. I saw this and HAD to have it. I love flakies! I should've bought that little jar of flakie glitter I saw in this shop I went to but I guess that can wait. I think this was 2 coats of Nubar 2010.

And with Matte Magic:

I found a random bottle of holographic string glitter in a Japanese shop and tried it. The bottle says fast drying but... it's a lie. It didn't even dry glossy. There's regular top coat on the shiny right side of my nail and Matte Magic on the left side.

This was a really.. weird post. I'll be posting regular, normal stuff after this. I don't want to go to class tomorrow! Or.. today, since it's past 12am already. Stupid class. Argh. I haven't even touched my homework. ):

I think I'm going to call it the schizo. It's just sticking with me, I don't know why. I know, psychology nerds, let me have it. :P
