Party Nails and Panoramas

This past few months, I've been really getting into makeup and nail polish. I'm not sure where this obsession came from, but it isn't going away any time soon and I need an outlet. Since I don't want to annoy my Facebook or Instagram followers with my vanity too much, this blog will be my little corner of the Internet where I document my exciting adventures with nail and face shit.

I'm trying really hard not to hate myself for being such a stereotypical girl... But the truth must come out. I can no longer hide it.

I love glitter.

Like, really love glitter. I would wear it every day on my clothes if I weren't trying to pretend to be an adult most of the time. But since I can't, I settle for just wearing it on my nails. We're throwing a New Year's Eve Party tomorrow, and I feel like my nails perfectly embody this occasion.

Nothing says "party" like spending the better part of two hours on a home manicure.

Polish used:
-Sinful Colors Black on Black
-Maurices Nail Color multi-color glitter (they don't have titles)
-Essie Luxe Effects "As Gold As It Gets"
-Essie All-In-One base and top coat, which is my secret weapon for long-lasting manicures. Seriously, it's magical

Also. I just discovered the panorama feature on my Samsung Galaxy S3 phone camera.

This is my living room, captured in a panorama shot. I recognize that this is not a very good photo. It's blurry because you have to move the camera around the room and I have constantly shaky hands, and the lamps and TV are super white because of the longer exposure time. Still, I think it's pretty cool. Even though it's distorted, I love this view of my living room, complete with sleepy dog and husband. I'll definitely be playing around more with this, which just happens to be one of my New Year's resolutions! But more on that in a later post. :)
