Post Grad Slump

The random findings & babblings of a twenty-something living in Philadelphia. I graduated college in 2009 and I'm still getting used to this thing we call the "real world."

My favorite things include Philadelphia (the city, the sports, the food), traveling, ice cream, giraffes, taking pictures, & finding recipes online that I'll probably never actually get around to making. It's an interesting mix, but so am I.

my nail polish collection.
i think it’s safe to call it a collection at this point.
i just can’t help it. especially when zoya has their promotions! [highly recommend this brand if you haven’t tried it yet. it’s becoming my favorite]
how do you guys store your polish? i’m just about at capacity. they really need to make a nail polish carrier (that’s not industrial or expensive)! View high resolution

when zoya has their free nail polish promotions i must admit they make me really anxious.
which in turn leads me to randomly pick out 2-3 nail polishes, pray i don’t have that color, and hope for the best.
i have yet to be disappointed with my purchases.
goal: get kelly on my nails today. View high resolution

The Kardashian’s/Jenner’s came out with their own Nicole by OPI nail polish collection. [surprised? me neither] They will be $7.99 a bottle (!) & will be available during the holiday season.
From top row, left to right: All Kendall-ed Up, Sealed with a Kris, Kim-pletely In Love, Khloé Had a Little Lam-Lam, Kourt is Red-y for a Pedi, Rainbow in the S-kylie. From bottom row, left to right: Disco Dolls, Listen to Your Momager!, Wear Something Spar-kylie, It’s All About the Glam, Follow Me on Glitter, Kendall on the Katwalk, My Empire… My Rules.

& according to Kim’s “blog" this is just half of them. Is it just me, or is this like a ridiculous amount of nail polish to have in one collection? [not to mention a bit pricey]
I mean, Katy Perry has 5…

Yesterday when I was getting a pedicure I came across the new fall Essie colors.
I fell in love with the Going Incognito color. But then, I remembered when I was in JCrew last week I saw these nifty little bottles. They come in a four pack and run about $17 (since an Essie bottle is about $8 a pop it’s a pretty good deal!).
The four pack above includes masquerade belle, silken cord, hot coco & going incognito. And it’s such a good deal because really, who ever uses up an entire bottle of nail polish?
So, my question to you Tumblr friends is do they sell these little packages in major beauty stories (i.e. Ulta or maybe even BB&B)?
[if you really love the collection you can buy all 6 for $48 - IMO that’s a tad much, but, to each their own]
[and if you’re really curious what color I got on my toes - I went with the OPI Swiss collection’s Ski Teal We Drop]

some people know me too well

  • Coworker: Hey Ab, this looks like a color you would like - I just got it today. (holds up Sexy Divine from Essie - a deep purple color)
  • Me: You're right - that's why it's currently on my toes.
  • Coworker: Wanna touch up?
