Nail of the Day: OPI "Who the Shrek are you?"

Today's nail of the day is from the new OPI Shrek collection, and it is an ogre green color called "Who the Shrek are you?". When I first saw this collection was coming out, this green caught my eye, but because of my fair skin tone, I figured it would be too lime-y/bright for me. However, when I saw it in person, I was surprised with how well it looked on me!

Nail of the Day: OPI Tickle My France-y

Today's Nail of the Day is a creamy nude color by OPI called "Tickle My France-y". I love this polish because it gives a subtle color to my nails but is still very wearable and goes with any outfit, so I never have to worry about it clashing!

Holla!

So I'm sitting here after 11 on a Wednesday night, finally convinced that I am not going to be tired anytime soon and should blog. Here I am, with a bowl of hot asiago ravioli, ready to give a thorough-ish update on what's new with me and Amarixe.

So I've literally spent hours on this blog's layout today, and after trying out 3 or 4 designs, I have found one I might be able to live with. I really wish I knew more about web-design... I know a fair amount from my Myspace years (my profile was very intricate), but I don't know much about actually designing a blog layout from scratch. I want something cute and representative of the beauty content on it, but also functional and easy to use. Lately, a few of you have messaged me saying that you couldn't find a way to comment on my posts or follow my blog, and hopefully that is fixed now! Sorry it took me so long!

So this semester at school has been really rough for me. I'm taking 17 credits (a full time student is 12 credits), working 20-ish hours a week, and training for a 5k! This leaves very little time for anything extra other than homework, so video frequency has been low, and blog frequency has been virtually non-existent. However, I only have 2 weeks of school left, and then I will have much more free time to spend with you guys! I'm really excited about it!

I think that is all I wanted to say for now. Upcoming videos include a few tutorials, reviews, and the 40 beauty questions tag. If you guys have any ideas for a video, please don't hesitate to send them my way!

Goodnight lovelies!
