NOTD: Cover Girl Chocolate Mint

Yet another tricksy one that is not playing 100% nice with my camera, although I managed a couple good shots. The name pretty much says it all; Cover Girl Chocolate Mint:


Chocolate brown with mint green shimmery duo-chrome effect is what I'm going to describe it as. Sometimes I have a little debate with myself regarding at what point a secondary color goes from being just a shimmer or an opalescence to a true duo-chrome, especially when it's so hard to capture on film. Either way though, this color was pretty enough I only had a passing temptation to Konad it last night. However, after having it on all day, I must confess to being bored. I'm not even sure if a Konad would have helped, but I'll be changing this tomorrow unless something pops up.

I'm actually kind of sick of my current Konad selection. But I told myself I wouldn't place my order until I did my taxes, and I kind of felt like crap over the weekend so I didn't get around to them. And I'm trying to keep my word to myself because if I allow myself any wiggle room, it won't be long before I wiggle myself right out of my no-buy.

The only upside to the feeling crappy is that I haven't been up to anything but sitting & reading, and so I managed to finish a book in what is more normal time for me which was under 2 days. Usually I read 2-3 books per week, not the 1 per week I've been at lately. I guess I'll see once I'm feeling better if I can keep it up. Thanks for reading.

  2. The Asian Girl - yes, this was in one of my very fist Dollar Tree 2-packs that I picked up a couple of weeks ago.

  3. I went to the closest Dollar Tree to me and they had NADA as far as nail polish. That's a pretty color. The name is perfect for it.

  6. THE PRETTY BROWN GIRL - I'm lucky enough to have a lot of Dollar Trees around, and only one of them actually had zero polish - if you have another near you, you could still hit the mother load!

    NESSA - My pleasure =)

    BROOKE - Those were yummy!

  7. Love the chocolate mint. I think I'd be tempted to nibble my nails! They do look like candy. I used to read the same amount of books. But!! Since getting a computer I don't read much anymore. I keep updated lists of books I'd like to read. The lists are getting longer and longer.

  8. LUCY - I know what you mean - since I get most of my books from the library, I try to get on the waitlist as soon as they order a book (which can be up to a year or more prior to release) & when my reading picked up after a dry spell, I learned that you can only have 100 items on request at a time ... I am usually in the 90's with a list of what I need to add when I have room!
