China Glaze Cracked Concrete on OPI Guy Meets Gal-veston

How long did I not post for? I was so lazy to upload pictures from my camera and now I have a gazillion. I'm still trying to sort through 65 pictures of a certain polish. :/

Anyway, I have a test next Friday and the Friday after that too. I can't say TGIF anymore (not that I say it now). But yeah, can't really enjoy my Fridays. ):

I never knew how much it cost to send stuff anywhere. Not letters, not packages, not locally, not internationally. And I never knew how long it would take to send anything anywhere. Apparently it takes 2-3 MONTHS to send something to the other side of the world by surface/sea mail. Wow. That is insane. I was planning to send something by surface mail but there was no way I was going to let it take 2-3 MONTHS!

My wallet has officially become a fishing net :/  But this was really fun and I hope the person I swapped with likes newspaper and doesn't die laughing at the bubble wrap. Haha.

I got bored of but didn't want to take OPI Guy Meets Gal-veston off, so I decided that was what crackles are for. I used China Glaze Cracked Concrete from their recent crackle collection. I like the color contrast. (:

Right hand, in the shade.

Left hand, shade.

Under my desk lamp. Ew. Why does the base color look so gross here? :/

In the sun.

Then I added top coat:

I really like crackles. I love the way these crackled. I just wish a red crackle would hurry up and be released already. Why is OPI's crackle collection so late? :/

I went to watch Black Swan in the cinema a couple of days ago. I loved it. I had to think a little to figure the movie out (I still don't know what it really is about), but I guess that's part of the fun. I was scared out of my pants because I am a scaredy cat but I liked it. I don't know if I would dare to watch it again alone :/

The experience was ruined by KIDS (okay, maybe not kids but tweens?) on school holiday who were definitely underage, since the movie was rated 18. And they kept laughing at the parts that weren't remotely funny, and they giggled every time someone said the F word. One of their phones even rang during the movie. Why can't they watch an age-appropriate movie, or just shut up? I hate when people are being inconsiderate like that.

Have you watched Black Swan? How was it?


  1. you crack me up :) i love this on you! i don't think the grey crackle looks that great on me.

  2. Color combo is great, I like how it looks like with TC. :)
    I watched Black Swan too, but I didn't like it at all. :D What a waste of my time. :D

  3. kelliegonzo - :D I'm sure if you paired it with the right color it would look great (:

    Ivana - I think I like it with top coat too.
    Really? I guess it's not for everyone. Haha. From the looks of it, you're not as big a scaredy cat as I am. ;)
