these are all the nail polishes i own. i have about twenty others but they're those really odd ones that come out of those debenhams make-up kits and they're all varying shades of shimmer. unwearable on their own, but helpful when layering and whatnot.

due to the tube strike i'm not going to central london to fight though sale racks. i'm also unable to shop online as my cheques haven't cleared. i'm settling for chilling out in bed and possibly doing revision. i thought i'd do a post on my nail polish collection today. it's a decent size, although lacking in some colour areas. and i've been meaning to buy some cosmetic glitter for crazy nail art. did a gradient manicure earlier with some of the pinks and the reds.
black lipstick, barry m. it's tricky to do, but i think i managed it. for non-costume purposes, i'll probably wear this layered with red or pink, and gloss. i'd like to wear it on a daily basis but it would end up all over the place after lunch.. and i don't intend to sacrifice lunch to wear black lipstick.
