Nyx Girl: Under the Moon (NGP 221)

Hey guys! I am currently wearing this polish from Nyx Girl called 'Under the Moon'. It's a blue jelly-like polish with holo and hexagonal sparkles. I originally bought this along with several other Nyx Girl polishes and some other brands.

Ever since I was given my first bottle of Nyx Girl polishes I have been loving them! The colours were adorable and the formulation was what I loved. I had use Nyx Girl's 'Frizzy Spots' a week before from the same batch and loved the formulation of that and its easy application that I had expected similar results from 'Under the Moon'. However, I found myself having more issues with this one than the other one. The larger sparkles are hard to get out from the bottle so I spent quite a bit of time shaking and stirring up the bottle to get them out. It will probably be a while before I wear this one again but the colour is adorable! Maybe I'll layer it over some other polishes. It took three coats to get this amount of opacity.

With flash (on my crappy phone camera since I am horrible with shooting manual with a DSLR with only my right hand)
Without flash (also on my shoddy phone camera. DUR. I need a new point-and-shoot camera)

Have you tried any Nyx Girl polishes? Have any that you constantly keep going back to?


Phresh Start to a New Year

Hey guys! My name is Annie and I started this blog today.

There are several reasons that I have finally gotten my butt into gear about doing this:
1. I would finally have a reason to use the make up and nail polish I already had
2. It helps me document what I have done
3. This was a part of my goals for the year!

I actually have several goals for this year!

1. Update this blog at least once every two weeks
I have had sites and blogs in the past but I keep finding myself neglecting them. So, in hopes that I do update once in a while I will attempt to update with something new every two weeks! Hopefully, I will stop my bad habit of walking away and neglecting my blog forever.

2. Read and try to complete a book every month
It has been an extremely long time since I have managed to read and complete a book out of pleasure and not because it was for school. Since I have at least one year off from school now I am going to try my best to read a book every month and try to get back into enjoying what I read.

3. Start a new anime series each month
I had not watched a proper anime (or really any) until last year or so but even then I only find myself watching 2-3 series that entire year. So, as part of my goals for the year I am going to try and watch a new series each month. Luckily for me, my series for this month is going to be 'Working'!!' This is the second season of the anime and it is adorable. I can only wonder what my next one is going to be.

4. Use my camera more
I am not going to lie, the only time my camera had gotten a heck of a lot of action this year was for Anime North in May where I did two day of private photoshoots back to back. My legs and arms killed the day after the con but the toning I did was worth it. Alas, I want to get better. So, I am going to try and use my camera more often this year. If I am going to do photoshoots I am not going to shoot back-to-back shoots again. That was a horrible idea and I did not realize how many people would be interested in my photos.

5. Be happier
I think this is a goal that everyone can work towards. :) A lot of things happened this past year; more good than bad, luckily. I can only hope this year can be an even better one.

Hopefully, this blog and I will have a great year ahead of us!
