Midweek Manicure – Foie Gras

A very simple one this week! Here is the second of the two Hunger Games colors from China Glaze I picked up: Foie Gras.

China Glaze Foie Gras

I really like the color, plus it stayed on about ten times longer than Stone Cold did (which would mean it stayed on longer than half a day, ha)!

Happy Painting!

Midweek Manicure – Stone Cold

Here’s the China Glaze Stone Cold from the Hunger Games series I was so excited about.

China Glaze Stone Cold

I think it’s kind of really awesome. I love that it’s matte, and goes on really smoothly. However, it chips like crazy which was really disappointing. I even used a matte topcoat in the hopes that that would keep it on longer, but it was chipping pretty badly by the next day. Ya win some, ya lose some I guess. I wonder if most matte polishes have this same issue…??? I think next time I’ll use it in a nail art design instead of alone, and see how that goes.

Friday Rewind – Happy Hunger Games!

This week seemed to fly by! So quickly that it seems like even yesterday was a total blur.  I spent a lot of time at home, enjoying watching a lot of netflix episodes of season one of The Killing (really good!). Between last weekend and several week nights, we’ve watched enough episodes to be all caught up and ready for Sunday night’s new one. I’m not sure if I should be really proud to admit that I watched an insane amount of television this weekend and earlier this week… Radar on the other hand, spent a lot of his nights curled up in his doggy bed with Mr. Pig. So cute.

Here is a sneak peak at the dresser rehab process. All the drawers are painted and have new hardware. Just the exterior of the dresser itself needs to be painted, but it was so windy during the early part of the week, and then rainy yesterday and the day before, that I haven’t had a good opportunity to lug the thing outside to spray paint the rest of it. Hopefully it will be finished by Sunday!

Tonight D and I are going on a date. Dinner and a movie. Not sure where we’ll be eating but we are going to see the Hunger Games (finally)! In honor of the big event, I picked up this polish:

Stone Cold by China Glaze, part of their Hunger Games collection of polishes.  It’s a grey with some light shimmer…and its MATTE! How cool. I’m really excited to use it. Wicked excited, even. Is that normal?

I also bought the color Foie Gras from the collection. Did I mention I can’t wait to see the movie tonight?

Aside from the movie, it’s a weekend full of yard work, our monthly church game night on Saturday, and a spring concert on Sunday. As for Monday, I plan on sleeping in as long as humanly possible, since I have the day off. Gotta love long weekends.

I hope everyone has some nice things planned for their weekend too!

Happy Friday!
