1. I didn’t bring red nail polish to school what is wrong with me.

    I’m coming out of hiding for a bit to review the Serum No. 5 fall 2013 collection. I’ve been with Serum since the beginning so when Victoria asked me to review the fall collection I couldn’t refuse. She’s really come so far since launching just over a year ago,and every month she donates 20% of all profits to charity! 
On to the polish- shown is three coats of Best Witches. Pardon the nubs, gotta keep them short for school. Best Witches is a really great polish for fall, especially around Halloween! It has a pretty grey base with silver micro glitter along with orange, yellow, purple, and white glitter of varying shapes and sizes. Overall I really like this polish, I think it’s so pretty and great for this time of year!

    The end?

    As much as I wish I could paint my nails on a regular basis, that is unfortunately not possible. Both school and work revolve around food which means that I have to keep my nails bare. The little free time I do have  goes towards volunteering (in a kitchen) and trying to figure out my life because being an adult is hard. 

    This isn’t really new as I haven’t posted in quite a while and even then my posts were sparse. I just thought an official post explaining why I never post would be a good idea. I’m not going to delete this blog, and I might post something every once in a while.

    Here’s the point where I shamelessly self promote myself: I do have a personal blog, and if anyone would like to keep up with me there that would be rad. I reblog a lot of food and cats and pretty men and other pretty things in general.

    I might be obsessed. I also might have gone a little crazy when I went to Urban Outfitters with the intention of only buying Virgin. (Also has anyone else noticed that tumblr really screws up image quality? I feel like this is a recent thing.)

I just got actual striping brushes and you have no idea how excited I am to not have to use modified liquid eyeliner brushes anymore. I never really buy nail art supplies, I just make use of what I have lying around the house (like bobby pins instead of dotting tools). So when I had the opportunity to review striping brushes from the Born Pretty Store I jumped at the chance. 

As you can see from this semi awful picture, the set comes with three different length brushes. I used the shortest one for these nails. I think I’ll probably end up using the shortest one most often because it gives me more control, but I’ll most likely use the other two for longer lines. These are nice and thin so I don’t think I’ll have to cut off any bristles.
As always, if you would like to purchase anything from the Born Pretty Store you can used the coupon code “UGJ61” to receive 10% off your entire order, and shipping is always free!

    Studs on studs on studs featuring Serum No. 5 Barely There
Barely there is a lovely sheer nude polish featuring silver glitter of varying sizes. Shown is three coats but I think it looks a lot better if you stick to one or two coats so it’s still sheer. And like all of the other Serum No. 5 polishes I’ve tried, the formula was great.
As always, I’m obsessed with BornPrettyStore studs. They’re made out of metal and always feel really sturdy on my nails. If you ever want to purchase anything from their store you can use the code “UGJ61” for 10% off your entire order, and shipping is always free!

    Glitter v-gaps featuring Serum No. 5 Girl’s BFF
Girl’s BFF is essentially the silver version of Girl’s Gotta Eat. It has silver glitter in varying sizes and I have to say that I really like it. I love glitter polishes that are all the same color just with different shapes and sizes, and because this one is silver it goes with essentially any polish! This polish isn’t too thick so it’s very easy to add multiple layers without worrying if your nails will ever dry. I have about three coats on my index and middle fingers and then I just sort of globbed it on the other nails because I got lazy. 
Girl’s BFF was sent to me for review, all opinions expressed in this post are my own.

    I haven’t posted in forever and I feel horrible about it, it’s just that school has taken over my life! 
It’s a long weekend though, so I decided to take a break and do nails inspired by my most recent obsession: Galaxy! I like how subtle these came out, and I just had to use Serum No. 5’s Starry Nights for the star shaped glitter! 
Is anyone else as obsessed with galaxy as I am? I found a phone case on Etsy that I’m really tempted to buy, and I also really need want a galaxy sweater and leggings! I would have no idea what to wear them with but they’re just so pretty!
