claire's cosmetics body glitter **
* if you have this color and you're rubbing your eyes or mocking my photography/white-balance/exposure fail, it's because the blue shown is actually something along the lines of 9 parts blue it and 1 part whitest white, which i think matches much better!
when i need a certain color or simply lose interest in a current one, i have no qualms in pouring in whatever i think will make it more to my liking. another example is a burgundy-ish claire's polish that was way too cool-toned for me so i added bunches of a cheap nyc orange, which has helped! i wouldn't wholly categorize this behavior as "frankening," though. more like... plastic surgery?
** the stars are from claire's (a tween accessories/cosmetics store in the u.s.). they are labeled as "body glitter". wtf. they are HUGE:
question 1: do you plastic surgery your nail polishes?
question 2: at what age (if any) is 4mm star-shaped body glitter appropriate?
question 3: does anyone else see blog posts about fall collections but keep reading "fail collection", e.g. "chanel fail"? (ok ok i admit i may be nerdier than most.)
