China Glaze – 2Nite

Wednesday, 23 March, 2011

I was going to do a creme swatch the other day, but the sun came out and I feel like I’ve been buried in gray skies, despite the fact we haven’t really had rain in California in such a long time. I can’t complain. We need the rain.

Anyway, the sun came out and I felt like it was the gods smiling down upon me, granting me a clear moment (or two!) to get nail polish things done. I took advantage of it and have no regrets. I’ve been needing a break from playing Dragon Age 2. My xBox totally froze. Stupid MicroShite. To make it worse, it was right in the frakkin’ middle of the huge end battle with Knight Commander Meredith. I snapped a pic with my phone because I just couldn’t believe it. I thought the game was just loading…and then it just froze on that screen. I was waiting for the cut scene. Didn’t happen. No, I’m not angry or annoyed at all. *rolls eyes* I think I was never meant to finish this game. It’s been a bit of drama with the xbox ever since I started playing. Grrr.

Anyway, I am all irritated just looking at that picture.

Here is the polish I have for you today…

China Glaze – Octa Gone Wild and QT

I’ve been slacking. I fully admit it, though I hang my head in shame when I say why. I’m sadly sucked into the world of a video game I’m playing – Dragon Age 2. This is my first time playing an RPG (role playing game). Traditionally, I’ve played MMORPGs (massively multiplayer online role playing game) – EverQuest and WoW to name a couple. So this time I’m playing DA2 on the XBox. I’ve been bound and determined to finish the game, but I’m about 75% through the game and I realized…I hate how my character is relating to another. What have I done? Why, I’ve scrapped the game and started a new one…and am discovering new quests and relationships because I’ve changed one line of dialogue.So while thrilled, I’m also going, “OMG. What have I gotten into?!”

Anyway, since I didn’t do a post yesterday I’m throwing in the color along with my Friday Red.

I am showing you my attempt at doing a week of Holographic polish…here are 2 polishes from China Glaze – Octa Gone Wild and QT

I know I didn’t post anything on Wednesday. I honestly had every intention of doing so, but I got distracted by a game Mr Carinae brought home the night before. It’s called Dragon Age 2. I’m not a big RPG player on a console. I’m an MMORPG kind of girl, but an old school MMORPG – EverQuest. Yea, I went there. It’s how I roll. I played the beta on FB for Dragon Age Legends because…well, Mr Carinae persuaded me to. Got my beta key and was on my way. So anyway, it’s how I got into playing DA2. I’m fumbling with the console for the xBox because I’m so used to gaming on my PC. I will stop with my nerdy self now before I really bore you  all with my totally useless knowledge.
