FOTD & EOTD: A Little Bit of Burnished Gold

Tuesday, April 17, 2012
Hello, everyone!

My posting has been a little less frequent this last week. I was quite busy, spent a weekend doing things I hadn't done in a long time, and trying out some new things as well!
I went rock wall climbing, canoeing and hiking out in the woods in Sandstone, MN. I also got to try a high ropes obstacle course for the first time, which was really exciting. I did not realize how terrified I was of heights...until I was up in the air.

Luckily, I thought ahead and filed my nails down quite a bit so I didn't actually experience any breakage. I don't know what is more amazing, the fact that I thought ahead or the fact that my nails were not utterly destroyed.

Now, here's what I put on my nails just today. It's a color that I picked up from Forever 21 just last week before my trip. 

It's called Love & Beauty Safari/Gold. I've always been highly amused by Love & Beauty's simplified names for all the polishes. It is gold shimmer in a smokey translucent base, that ends up looking like a burnished gold. I love how the smokey aspect makes it look olive. This is what I had hoped China Glaze Agro was going to look like. 

Coincidentally, I used the same colors for my makeup. I did a sort of winged shadow look.
