When things get rough, I always force myself to sit there and write down the blessings in my life. One of the blessings in my life are my internet/forum friends that share my passion and also have a huge heart. I could not even run this blog, if it wasn't for the generosity and kindness bestowed upon me by my forum friends. There is something about a community of complete strangers that meet together to talk about something so miniscual as nail polish and beauty products. It is quite special. I hold these distant friendships pretty close to me, because I don't really have anyone in my real life who share this level of passion for it.
My day is always brightened up by a gift from any of my friends, but this gift made my yeart. It's extravagant, and absolutely stunning! What could it be, but a nail polish made out of 24k gold flakie leaves HAHA! DH is not pleased with the price (even though he didn't buy it lol), because he finds it ridiculous that a nail polish cost this much. I reminded him it was not a nail polish per say, but it was an accent top coat for "special occassions". That's all I could come up with, I know it was horrible, but I was still in shock from receiving this.
I actually was going to buy this for myself for Christmas and have been putting aside my loose change to fund it, so Christmas came very early for me this year :) :) :)
Ok I'll stop talking now and show you this beauty.
I am afraid to use it haha.
But I know when I'm going to wear it and what with!
I just love it, love love love love!
And come to think of it, my HG bag was also gold!
|Louis Vuitton Limelight in Gold|
As this bag is much more yellow/24k gold in real life,
I can't wait to carry this bag with my nails to match!
A little backstory about this bag. It was something that I wanted since I saw the promo pictures of the LV runway show, I believe this was 2007 or 2008. It was right before after I got married, and I remember wanting this bag so badly that my DH saved and splurged on this bag and postponed getting himself studio equipment (that he needed). It was quite self-less of him, and it really means the world to me. Him, he means the world to me, not the bag hehe, although the bag does mean a lot to me as well in the material sense. :)
I feel so complete right now, it's a rare feeling for a shopoholic like myself xx
