Look alive, sunshine.
109 in the sky, but the pigs won’t quit.
You’re here with me, Dr. Death Defying.
Just kidding! It’s Janine!
∞ points to you if you know where that’s from, though(:
Here it is, as promised, my next post. Albeit a tad late (sorry, blame the computer virus), and quite long, but I hope you all enjoy! A billion ♥’s to you all for being patient(:
Also, ahead of time…I’m sorry, I know this post is long. 2,036 words, but read it anyway! PLEASE! I’ll send you free…pencil sharpeners? Oh, I don’t know…xD
My Chemical Romance. ♥
I know what you’re thinking…what happened to that amazing organization and the breaking down into groups? Well, this week, I took a hike down the MCR trail.
I’ve known their music for a loooong time, as long as I’ve liked punk-pop-emo stuff. I just never really got into them, until now. Before, I was all, “Oh, My Chemical Romance. Yeah, I know them. They’re songs are…a’ight.” But now, if you ask me about them, I’ll probably squeal (which I never do), and yell “IT’S TIME TO DO IT NOW AND DO IT LOUD! KILLJOYS UNITE!” or something along those lines. Yes, I know I’m super embarrassing, jeez.
A list of my favorite MCR songs by album…
From Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge: Helena♥ [I love this song SO SO SO much!], I’m Not Okay, The Ghost of You, Thank You for the Venom, and Cemetery Drive.
From The Black Parade: Dead!, Welcome to the Black Parade [Love this one too! ♥], I Don’t Love You [So sad, but so amazingly brilliant! ♥], Cancer [Also supremely sad, but an awesome song ♥], Teenagers, Disenchanted, and Famous Last Words [SO GOOD THAT MY BRAIN EXPLODED!].
From Danger Days: Na Na Na, Sing, and The Kids from Yesterday [All of these are such brilliant songs, I don’t even know what to say.] I haven’t really listened much to Danger Days yet, so forgive me, I don’t have much to say. Sorry! I’ll definitely update you all on my progress, though, LOL. The Glee cover of Sing murdered my ears, though. They completely butchered it. HATEHATEHATE it! No offense, Gleeks.
Another song I’ve been loving is “Face Down” by Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. I’ve known this song for a long time, and was SO fantabulously excited when a contestant for our contest sent me this song on her playlist!
Thus concludes our weekly music-fest and appetizers. Let’s go on to our entree.
So much stuff…[Nails+Haul+Birthday+UD Experiment+Contest]
NOTW+Revlon Scandalous+Cherries in the Snow (Continued)
Nails of the Week…hm. Well, I actually haven’t painted my nails in 2 weeks, seeing as I just had to go ahead an break 2 of my nails again. Freaking awesome, considering I’m becoming somewhat known for doing music+nail posts!
I guess I’ll continue with reviewing some polishes from last week’s post. One thing I forgot to mention, while the other, I hadn’t experienced yet.
Remember Revlon Scandalous? That black-and-pink-glitter polish? [Click here if you don’t remember.] Most of my readers loved it, and even I liked it (rare, since pink is my least favorite color)! Well………
It was a byotch to take off. For reals. I got pink glitter EVERYWHERE (glitter was falling out off of me, and I didn’t even know it was there), and it took FOREVER to get off. The glitter caught on the cotton balls, and it was awful. 2 hours, an entire bag of cotton balls, a TON of nail polish remover, and a sink full of blackish-grey water and pink glitter later, it was off my nails.
Apparently, to take glitter polishes off, you’re actually supposed to do something with tin foil and acetone, but I couldn’t find the foil… -_- If you do, however, have locatable foil, you should definitely give this one a go!
As for Revlon Cherries in the Snow, that gorgeous red 1-coater jelly-creme (it’s a jelly in the first coat, but a creme if you add more) was also pretty bad during removal. It turned my fingers all red, and it stained my nails red! It looked like I’d dipped my fingers into blood and tried, unsuccessfully, to wipe it off. So, guys, be aware! It’s amazingly purty and has an awesome formula, but you might get serial-killer hands.
Thank you, Christmas! [Polish Haul]
More on nails! These polishes I got for Christmas from assorted people! [I got other stuff, too, but I want to show you a sneak peek of some polishes I’ll be swatching soon! Also, this haul is not to brag, like I said…sneak peek.]
First off, here are the polishes Ju got me! Sephora by OPI: I’m With Brad and Teal We Meet Again. I’m With Brad is a metallic blackened red, and Teal We Meet Again is a metallic blackened teal…Love them both!
Then there’s Pa A16, which my friend M* gave me. The pictures do NOT do this polish justice. In person, it’s a metallic gold with a hint of red micro-glitter in it as well. But, by far, the best part is…there are mini holographic flakies in it. I love flaky glitter, and this polish is amazing! (I know you totally can’t see the flakies, sorry!)
The last polishes are thanks to my friend, R*, who is AMAZING, and an even bigger nail junkie than I am! She gave me 6, yes SIX, Essie polishes, as well as the well-loved Seche Vite top-coat! The colors are Loophole (metallic silver), Russian Roulette (classic red creme), Jamaican Me Crazy (shimmery fuchsia- though I’ll probably never wear it since it’s pink), Borrowed and Blue (gorgeous baby blue creme), and My Way (light pink).
Just click the pics to enlarge them! Sorry, the last few pictures are from one of the next segments, ignore that for now!

The…wait for it…Urban Decay Experiment.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of the high-end makeup brand Urban Decay, and their famous eyeliner pencils. I’m also sure you’ve contemplated buying their stuff. Here I am, showing you the truth about Urban Decay liners, with swatches and pictures galore! (The colors I’m showing you are Ransom, an iridescent purple, and Mildew, a shimmery forest green.)
Here’s 2 layers of Ransom, and 1 layer of Mildew! Mind you, Ransom was freshly swatched, while Mildew had been on my hand overnight already (so it was on my hand for about 8 hours already!) Mildew is doing pretty good! It looks EXACTLY the same as when it was just swatched. If you wanted to wear this to school, it would definitely stay on. Sorry, I don’t have a just-swatched pic of Mildew.
The next picture is from 11 hours later. Ransom is now 11 hours old, and Mildew has been on there for 19 hours. NINETEEN. Amazing! Ransom’s holding up pretty well, but Mildew has clearly begun to fade.
This is 28 hours after the last picture. Both have faded (quite a bit), but considering this is close to/over 2 days later (45 hours for Ransom, 53 for Mildew), this is AMAZING. Definitely try these eyeliners!
This is 17 hours after the last picture. The eyeliner is almost completely gone (in person you can see a teensy bit of it clinging on), but it’s done for. Ransom has been on for 62 hours, and Mildew has been on for 70 hours. Impressive! 😀
Thus concludes the Urban Decay Experiment. Results: GO TRY IT OUT!
Next week, I’ll be testing out Urban Decay Binge, a shimmery midnight blue!
If you haven’t entered the contest, well…it’s too late now! All slots are full! (Jill entered, but not by comment…Oh, I don’t know, as Ju.) The contest is now closed. If you are entered…all your playlists are due on Saturday, January 28th! Please, please, please remember a title! It’s worth 10 points! And Ju and I really don’t want to have to chase you down to get the title!
The next challenge will be posted on Saturday, so wait for that! We’ll also eliminate someone, and their name will be crossed off the list of contestants! Good luck! There will be a section where we will post the scores of everyone’s playlists!
My Unhealthy Obsession
What is it, you may ask? No, what I’m talking about is not nail polish (though that is ONE of my obsessions…but that’s quite obvious). It’s YouTube. [Click the green underlined usernames/video names to go to the channels/videos! Or play the embedded videos, they’re all amazing, I promise!]
Not all of YouTube either…I’m particularly obsessed with funny British guys. Oh, dear God. I’ve known charlieissocoollike (and his roommate, nerimon, for a SUPER long time, but probably 6 or 7 months ago, I was watching “Coming Out (Charliebot)“, and he linked to a guy named crabstickz who was just as, if not more, brilliant, just with less subscribers, and I TOTALLY love him! Just recently, though, through crabstickz, I found AmazingPhil, who is, as his name says, AMAZING. But the previously listed aren’t even my biggest obsession yet.
danisnotonfire. Yep, the one with the fringe and the *gasp* tan. He’s hilarious [and sooooo nice to look at(;] so go check him out! He and AmazingPhil also have a collab channel: superamazingproject. PLEASE WATCH THE EMBEDDED VIDEOS! You don’t have to, but come on… they all have sexy British accents. 😛 Go subscribe to them if you like them!
Dan is the one on the left, with the brown hair(: I especially love the Titanic reenactment! 😀
This is possibly my all-time favorite danisnotonfire video! He’s so funny and fake-serious!(: And his hat…it’s AWESOME!!!!!
Dan’s on the very left, Phil’s in the Dr. Pepper shirt, Crabstickz (Chris) is on Phil’s other side, and PJ is on the right!
My two favorite AmazingPhil videos!
And, last but not least, my favorite Crabstickz videos!
His Owen Wilson accent…it’s so surreal… *_*
Part of the Bad Occupation series, but this is by far my favorite!
The best Crabstickz video EVER. EVERRR!!!!!!! Yeah…Chris looks good in black-and-white. 😉
Another amazing video! Just go check out his channel, all his videos are amazing. Same for Dan and Phil! PLEASE(:
Hope you enjoyed this segment of my favorite videos! I might start a section as part of “Blurb of the Day” with my favorite video of the week. [I’ll limit it to just one video, I promise.] Please vote on whether or not I should do this!
Please vote! 😀
Blurb of the Day
Going on with the YouTube addiction theme…today’s blurb is a video! This guy is awesome! I’ve been subbed to his channels for at least a year! He does make-up-related videos and other stuff, too. He’s always really funny, and its awesome! Here’s an example:
Hope you liked the vids! 😛 The link to his channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ScottieSparkles
