I know what you’re thinking. “Kelsey, please stop with this gold thing, I’ve had enough, and I think you have too…wait, no, I haven’t had enough, never mind..,,sparrkklleessss.” Yeah, I’m thinking the same thing. Now worries. Here is my most recent nail colorings. Lots and lots of tiny gold sparkles. GOLD. SPARKLES. YES!

Polish: Sephora by OPI, Wild About Shimmer

I did about 5 coats over the course of 3 days. I hate when polish doesn’t dry completely, so it always takes me a ridiculous amount of time to finish a manicure. This polish is especially sheer too, so it took more coats than usual.

I have holidays on the brain again. Last class of the quarter today at 5PM, then…break! As you can see, I also have stripes on the brain, but I don’t know when that isn’t happening. This is another mother-inherited obsession of mine. Stripey stripe stripe stripe. <3.

The type on this holiday card is also out of control. I need to diligently practice my calligraphy skills over break to get as good at this one day.

Going through all the costumes that have been popping up on ¬†Facebook over the weekend, I’ve been so impressed with people’s creative use of face paint this year. I don’t know if I’ve just never really paid attention to it before, but it seemed like so many people were creating works of art on their faces. Props to all those skilled face painting artists, and the guys and gals who braved Halloween with these amazing faces.

Here I’ve found a slightly less painted face, but a beautiful costume none the less. Hope you enjoy this Halloween inspired color study.

After a friend’s suggestion I have been obsessively watching make-up and nail tutorials. I can’t NOT get enough of these Konad tutorials. This makes me want to do crazy crazy things to my nails every day. Here is an example of what I have been watching:

This will definitely be an upcoming purchase.
