This afternoon, I gave my presentation for the conference du jour. It went well; I felt underpracticed, but since this material is part of my job talk that’s really not true. Anyway, I got some laughs from the audience, which isn’t possible if they’re not engaged, and some good questions, so I was comprehensible. It was a small turnout, but it was scheduled during the very last session; a lot of people were already on planes.
C’est la travail. (And oooo I need to write about Québec so much.)
As mentioned, I recently bought a small mountain of Hearts & Glass polish. (Actually I bought three, then after quick swatches went back and bought every color I found interesting.) Here is:
Hearts & Glass Cloud Nine:
I have had the worst time finding any information about this brand, even proof that it exists; this page is the best, only, thing I’ve found. And I really like them: The three colors I’ve worn so far are all excellent, easy to work with, one- to two-coat coverage, no staining.
So: here are a whole bunch of bottle shots, internet. Of Hearts & Glass Nail Polish. Polish polish hearts and glass nail lacquer polish google tag hearts and glass. So there.
Color names are basically guesswork, because the bottles are in boxes, because everything I own is in boxes, some of which I may see again someday. ARGH MOVING. I will update if I ever see the boxes again.
My best guess after packing, by the way, is that I have around 400 bottles of nail polish, about half what I had wild-ass guestimated a while ago. (From this one can conclude, correctly, that binges of buying 20 bottles at a time are actually quite rare.) That’s not a bad estimate, but it’s not good either. When I unpack I might actually pay enough attention to figure out things like brand percentage… or I may be swamped with the new life. Hard to know.
