NOTW: Sephora by OPI Already Famous

Saturday, February 4, 2012

Sorry for the crap shot--I had to use my iPhone!
I hate putting up NOTW posts back to back, but I'm away for the weekend and with the spotty internet and the absolutely miserable week I've had, I figured a small post was better than none at all. 

I was so fed up with the Deborah Lippmann Some Enchanted Evening that I barely managed to make it a few days before scrubbing it all off with remover. I first showed this polish in my rambly mini haul post (link) and as much as I enjoy the color, I wish I loved it on my nails as much as I do in the bottle.

Maybe it was the lighting inside Sephora or something, but when I first saw Already Famous, I thought it was a beautiful foiled goldish-brown color, and it was that touch of chocolate-taupeyness that really made it interesting to me. This color is still gorgeous, and I'm glad I bought it, but it just doesn't seem as unique anymore. There's definitely some minky-ness to it, and I still love the shade because it gives my nails a lovely burnished antique look, but a bit more brown would've turned this polish into one of my all-time favorites. 

It's also perhaps a touch too metallic and sparkly for right now, though it would have been perfect two months ago, but I suppose that's my fault and not the nail polish's. =)

Since this post is embarrassingly short, here are some random tidbits to make me feel like less of a crappy blogger:

  • Slept with my hair in a high loose bun and while I didn't wake up to the pretty waves I wanted, I had the most fantastic volume! Will try and duplicate it tonight!
  • Saw The Descendants earlier and not only is it a great movie, it could also be used to promote Hawaiian tourism--I'm dying for a trip to Honolulu now. 
  • There's a bit of a gap in the very start of my lashline where the false lash extensions pulled out some hair. I don't know why it's taking so long to grow back in, but it's getting really annoying.
  • This sunny weather is nice and all, but if it's this warm in February, I don't know what I'm going to do in July.
  • I haven't worn lip gloss in forever. Like, it's been a few months now. Between these products (post) and my Tarte lip stains, I've really been favoring a satin finish over a glossy one lately, and can't see myself going back anytime soon. 
  • I waste several hours of my day drooling over the Shu Uemura cleansing oil shampoo. It sounds so ridiculously, almost unbelievably fabulous, but I already have so many hair products and that $55 price tag is a little too hard to swallow. 
  • Trying out a new face cleanser and am slightly weirded out by it but really loving it! There might be an Unfinished Business skincare post up soon!

Hair oil mist dupes will be up next!

Hope you all are enjoying the weekend!
