So much makeup. Such little student finance. A fight against the draconian makeup policies of a Catholic school. (2013)

French manicure, pure and simple. My form tutor has explicately OK'D this particular brand of nail polish. It's officially legal. Woot, I guess. What a shame it's so dull.
What are your opinions on the classic french manicure? Like? Dislike? Don't care?
Oh wow! I have 100 followers :P Thanks so much guys!
You're probably all sick and tired of the long speeches so I'll keep it short...didn't expect this. Thank you so much :P I'll have to go giveaway shopping now. Watch this space :)
Just imagine a leopard with this sort of colouring. How awesome would that be? Very awesome, me thinks. Not very practical, camoflauge wise and all that, but awesome nonetheless.
Before you see the pictures, I apologise for the lack of cleanup - I just /knew/ I'd be told to take it off at school so painted it the night before and quickly snapped it before I went to school.
So it's my alltime favourite hot pink (I only have two, but let's overlook that little fact, shall we) over BeautyUK's "Slate". I've always wanted to do a pink and grey look and will probably repeat this one at some point, but neatly.
There's a bit of bonus Konading for you on the middle finger. It's the Miss Sporty brand but I don't think they name their polishes, so it's just the black polish with the blue lid lol.
It needs improvement, but what do you guys think about the colour combination?
Lately, I've been failing so hard at water marbles, but I felt the thumb of this one was passable.
So the Government cuts meant that they've stopped producing NI (National Insurance cards, for those that don't know what this is - basically, you get one when you're sixteen or just about to turn sixteen and it means you pay tax on your earnings and...stuff) cards. They sent me one a couple of weeks back but /butchered/ my middle name (and did the same thing to another friend of mine with a foreign middle name, clearly this is a conspiracy) so we sent it back, not realising that we wouldn't get it back. They reply with the information above and a paltry letter with a serial number on it. A letter. Yes, for real. I don't want a bloody letter. I want a card! *incoherent ranting*
No but seriously we rang them up, begged, pleaded and offered to pay ourselves. No, the original card has been destroyed. No sorry, you can't buy one. No, there is no way we can help you. Yes, this is an 0800 phone number.
I may well be coming off as a petulant teenager but it actually meant something to me :(
On the plus side, yey half term.
I'd swap my half term for an NI card though.
Look at the orange. Just look at it. So bright!
So the formula is just the right /type/ of runny, it applies fairly well - opaque in two coats - removes easily and is just generally flawless. I approve.
Any disappointments this past month for you guys? Any unexpectedly good products?
So I opened my inbox the other day to find an email from someone that I didn't recognise, which I'm going to paraphrase (and change, because I don't want to name names)
"You've recently commented on yerfacesinnit* blog and we'd just like to notify you of (happy event)"
Ah, I thought. That's nice. Don't know how you managed to get my email, but whatevs. I read on:
"If you'd like to send donations or gifts here's the address."
Lol wasn't expecting that one.
I don't know, am I being overly cynical on this occasion? First off I assume my email was obtained from a comment as opposed to someone taking the time to find my blog and then look at my email address, which is at the top of this page. I don't know how to do that but even so, I won't do it to you guys, don't worry.
Secondly, I just find something slightly off about soliciting gifts off people I don't really know off the internet. I find it a bit cheeky, really, but maybe that's me. Anyway. What do you guys think?
Navy Blue: Alexa
Apparantly these are all named after famous fashion icons. I can guess the last two pretty easily but am kind of stumped on the first two. *ponders*
I haven't tried them out yet but they look /so/ incredibly pretty and cute. Can't wait.
The third product, the nail polish, gets a post all to itself, so stay tuned! Anyone hauled anything amazing recently?
In practice I have to stay out of his way up until precisely 8:30 every morning otherwise he hunts me down and asks to see my nails. *rage*
Ignore the rant. This is Barry M's Nail Paint in Raspberry (I'm well over half into the bottle now, scary!) and the navy was from the set of nail art pens. It's a pretty good navy actually, just the right amount of runny.
Oh, and the first of October was Nigerian Independance Day! Just thought I'd share :P I can't believe time is going so quickly!
