Illamasqua Radium Sponged Marble

IT'S FRIDAY!!

I'm feeling really happy right now. Wanna know why?! Don't care, telling you anyway. I booked a vacation with le boyfriend! We're going to NYC for a week now in July. He's all excited about me meeting his friends and taking me to eat everything I haven't tried or can't try here and taking me to his favorite spots around the city. I've been to NY just once when I was about 13-14 and this time I'm going with someone who knows his way around (he lived there for 7 years while he studied) so I feel... safer I guess? It's also my first time going away with a boyfriend so, yay.

Ok, since I went all wordy with my personal stuff I'll keep it simple with the nails! This is 2 buttery coats ofIllamasqua Radium which I wanted since forever (like most other Illamasquas) and did the saran wrap sponging with China Glaze Gothic Lolita.





I'm not gonna lie, Radium might not be the single most unique color but, to me, the slight shimmer it has, the fact that it doesn't stain and just the awesome Illamasqua formula made me want it. I'm sorry I just have the one picture of the marble, they all turned out awful since I was in the middle of cleaning when I remembered to take the pictures before I wrecked it. This was also before I trimmed my nails. Sigh, weren't the pretty?

Oh I also wanted to ask if anyone had a good book recommendation. I know le boy is going to sleep through the flight so I have to do something else for entertainment.

Ok soo that's it from me! Enjoy your weekend and... yeah, that's pretty much all I had to say... That second part of the sentence feels unnecessary now...

  2. Super pretty! I don't have any Illamasqua polishes but I definitely want a few!

    As for reading recommendations, my tastes are probably a bit different than most... I'm 16 and my summer reading consists of finishing Lord of the Rings and then The Count of Monte Cristo :) Haha

    1. Illamasquas are so good, I don't know what they put in those little square bottles, but it's magic. Haven't used one with a sucky formula yet.

      I've always had weird reading tastes too so I get you. I actually really like the idea of reading The Count of Monte Cristo, thanks !

    1. It's so easy! I also tried it with a tissue on a false nail (because I didn't want to go find the saran wrap) and it came out cool too, so that's another option!

      We're also going to meet up with some friends from here over there, so it should be cool :D

  5. These are awesome, and I love those colors!

    NY YAAAAY!!! I'm originally from upstate (moving back soon THANK GOD) but I went to college in NYC, I love that city so much. Girl you get yourself to Sephora and look at all the goodies!

    Hmm reading, where to start. My e-reader is stuffed with all kinds of things. I am so in love with the Song of Ice and Fire series (Game of Thrones) by George R.R. Martin. Gonna go with Emma and say LOTR is an awesome read. If you haven't read the Hunger Games books yet those are a quick read, they're over before you realize it. Ugh, so many more.

    1. Ohh I will! I will get myself to all the places and look at ALL THE GOODIES! I really want to buy some Zoya's most of all.

      I'm dying to read the 2nd Hunger Games book but I can't find it in paperback anywhere and I kinda hate hardcover books. I can't get into an e-reader either for some reason. Just a random fact about me.
