I just used the Pretty Woman nail polish from January's Ipsy Glam bag, and I was really impressed with it. I'm only OK about the color I got (gray), but I really loved the formula/texture, and seemed to dry quickly (I hate it when I put Seche Vite on and the brush smears the still-wet polish below). The one weird thing about it is that it has a larger-than-normal brush, so that if you have very small nails, it would be quite the chore to not paint outside your nailbed. I don't know if it was the polish or the brush, but I was able to paint ALL the nails on one hand without having to redip the brush, and what went onto my nails was still highly pigmented and even. I don't know that I have EVER been able to do that with a polish. O.o And I'm not sure if it was this particular color or formula, but it seemed to me that I could have just stopped with one coat. I still did two out of habit, but afterward concluded that there wasn't much of a difference and really needed only one. Again, very unusual. All that, plus being 5-free, cruelty free, and vegan? I'm in! Since it's one of this month's Ipsy samples, you can get 30% off an entire order (discount code: IPSY30), so I ordered 8 polishes (and there's free shipping for orders over $15, which is so reasonable). I hope I'll like the others as much as I liked my sample!

Because the gray is kind of boring, I'm thinking of putting some black nail art on them. If they turn out well, I'll share here! If not... I won't. LOL.

Since I enjoyed Answer Me 1997 so much, I've now started Answer Me 1994, and so far I am extremely underwhelmed. Spoilery comments. )

[profile] jade_okelani and I finished Goong yesterday and started Answer Me 1997. :D I had the same reaction to Goong as I did the first time, lol. It gets so terrible and draggy at the end that you forget all the good stuff that came before and just want it to end. Chae-kyung is probably one of my favoritest heroines EVER, but they take so much agency away from her! Spoilery comments. )

Jade is LOVING AM1997 so far. She's so innocent right now, not knowing of the angst and pain to come, that I feel very protective. Haha. But soon, SHE'LL KNOW.

My cousin is coming into town next Friday to interview for a job up here... that would be so awesome if he moved up here! We're going to get together on Saturday, and I'm drawing a blank as to where to take him for meals. O.o I've already taken him to some great places during a previous trip: Staple & Fancy, Lola, Paseo, SeƱor Moose... I don't want to re-do any of those. I also am trying to avoid Asian, because he lives in LA and can get good Asian food any time. What to do, what to do...
