Don't Eat the Glitter.

I love glitter. When I was little, I used to think it would be really great if I had a pool full of glitter, and I could swim in it (in hindsight, this would be the most uncomfortable thing ever. I also wanted a pool full of sunscreen, so I could just dip myself in it without having to worry about apply the stuff all over. This made sense to me at the time). My favorite thing was when my mom would make something involving glitter, and it would be sticking to everything for days. I love handfuls of the stuff, and usually have to keep myself from eating it (I know doing so is a really, really bad idea. Not only would it taste awful, but it would probably be almost impossible to get out of your mouth. It's up there with bars of soap from Lush and new tubes of lipstick in the list of things I want to eat but absolutely should not).

I also really love nail polish. I hardly ever wear it, since I work with food so I can't really wear it anyway, but sometimes I have enough days off in a row that I can justify the application. So even though I hardly ever buy it, I splurged and made this golden glitter polish by FACE at J. Crew my own. Normally when I need to feel sparkly I put on Moulin Rouge, but this works almost as well and it stays with me all day!



It's really hard not to stare at my nails all day. I keep wiggling my fingers around in different light to see what they do, and have had to hold myself back from applying more than three coats. Plus, then I don't feel like I need rings!

  2. I love glittery nail polish! Only, it's so hard to get off! I worked in food last year, right during prime glittery-nail season. It's a bummer!

  7. Soo pretty. I love glitter too. I like to say it's the "magpie" in me--just being attracted to shiny objects.

  16. Eeee yes! I love glitter, especially glittery nailpolish. I hunted some down on ebay last winter like a madwoman, and you remind me that I should really wear it a bit more!

  17. Firstly, I enjoy your cleverness regarding the combination of that anthro top awash with hands, with your own hands. Secondly, unrelated, but I started Downton Abbey per your recommendation and I'm enjoying it very much.

  18. I love this gold glitter polish! I've been looking for the perfect one and this looks like it may be it.

    Random Glitter Side Note: We had a Harry Potter Party this summer at the library and I had the grand idea to use lots and lots of glitter in our Harry Potter Wand Decorating Station...and oh. my. god. We had glitter in the carpet for the rest of the summer. There were piles of glitter everywhere.

    It was actually pretty magical! :)

  26. lol, this is so funny to me. i have really bad ocd and can not be around glitter. it sticks to everything. all the reasons why you love it are the reasons why i absolutely hate it! i used to be a teacher and banned it in my classroom- i was a bad teacher. i love your childhood imagination though!
