2007-2008 Top 20: #10-#5 Vignettes


#10: Chanel Vendetta

Dark purple? As a SPRING color?! There was definitely progress in the nail world. There are a few close relatives to Vendetta for those seeking cheaper alternatives (i.e., Finger Paints Black Gumdrop and China Glaze Midnight Ride), but Vendetta has a true purple base.


#9: Zoya Zara

I loved the Zoya Flourish collection. It was unique yet winter-appropriate. Zara was my favorite of the collection with its icy grape Easter egg shade. The gold shimmer makes it stand out.


#8: OPI Hollywood Blonde

Hollywood Blonde is my favorite sheer. I was astounded when I first applied it; I was impressed by the incredible glitter flecks in the sunlight. In pictures the glitter flecks are muted, unfortunately. This reminds me of the infamous dress Marilyn Monroe wore while singing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President”.


#7: OPI Midnight In Moscow

This color came out right in the middle of my vampy craze. I owned Sally Hansen Lacquer Shine Glossy; a very similar blackened red shade. However, Glossy was a pain to apply; the brush was hard to control and the formula thick and goopy. While MIM has the dreaded Pro-Wide brush, it was definitely more user-friendly than Glossy. I love the deep shade; it reminds me of lacquered Asian wood.


#6: OPI Black Cherry Chutney

While OPI was the first nail polish brand I cherished, I don’t understand the inconsistency of their collections. I loved the deep shades and vibrancy of the Russia/Fall 2007 and the India/Spring 2008 collections, but then they followed up with the blah and boring France/Fall 2008 and South Beach/Spring 2009 collections. I’m not a fan of the mushroom-y colors a la You Don’t Know Jacques!. Black Cherry Chutney was another color deeply ingrained in my original vampy craze. I liked it better than MIM due to the fact that it did not have a black base.


#5: Misa Candy Girl

I would like to give major props to Misa, Scrangie and the Polish Addict for the awesome December/January promo. I picked up 8 colors; 5 of which were from the Sugar Sugar collection. I was bowled over by the Polish Addict’s amazing pictures, especially of the toppings over black nail polish. While I also liked the base colors, I was intrigued by the sheer colors over black. This novel concept was a revelation to me; I finally had a reason to own sheers!

For New Years Eve 2009, I wanted something flashy but unique. I already wore a showy Vendetta/OMG Konadicure for Christmas and had trouble deciding between the Moscou colors. Instead, I applied Zoya Raven and layered Candy Girl over it; just as I had seen on the Polish Addict. My pictures don’t quite capture how breathtaking this effect is.

That Misa is unbelievably gorgeous! I think I have a thing for purple polishes! I may have to seek this one out.

Great Post!

Lucy said...

I just love all purples! Right now I am in a green phaze. Love all those shades, especially Black Cherry Chutney. There is just something so beautiful about those vampy shades. I wanted that Chanel Vamp so bad! Never got it but there are many like it.

The Asian Girl said...

PBG--I, too, have a thing for purples. lol

Lucy--US Vamp is one of my major letdowns, lol. I prefer Rouge Noir, the "old skool" Vamp.

Many of the mediaeval access routes to the market were too narrow for wheeled transport, and the narrow alleys were also dark, dangerous and mostly unpaved.

Have you ever been low
Have you ever had a friend that let you down so
When the truth came out
Were you the last to know
Were you left out in the cold
Cause what you did was low

Opened up and let you in

For once in my life
Now all thats left of me
Is what I pretend to be
So together but so broken up inside
'Cause I can't Breath no I can't sleep
I'm barely hanging on.

An arrow of freedom
Is piercing my heart
Breaking chains of emotion
Give a moment to pray
For lost innocence to find it's way

Fields of sensation
A cry in the dark
Hope is on the horizon
With a reason to stay
And living for a brand new day

Falling from the landscape
Exploding in the face of God

Every line is about who I don't wanna write about anymore.
I hope you come down with something
they can't diagnose, don't have the cure for
Holding on to your grudge
Oh it's so hard to have someone to love
And keeping quiet is hard
Cause you can't keep a secret
if it never was a secret to start

Uh, uh, some deep ****, uh, uh

Momma please stop crying, I can't stand the sound
Your pain is painful and its tearin' me down
I hear glasses breaking as I sit up in my bed
I told dad you didn't mean those nasty things you said

You fight about money, 'bout me and my brother
And this I come home to, this is my shelter
It ain't easy growing up in World War III
Never knowing what love could be, you'll see
I don't want love to destroy me like it has done my family

Can we work it out? Can we be a family?
I promise I'll be better, Mommy I'll do anything
Can we work it out? Can we be a family?
I promise I'll be better, Daddy please don't leave

Daddy please stop yellin', I can't stand the sound
Make mama stop cryin', 'cause I need you around
My mama she loves you, no matter what she says, its true
I know that she hurts you, but remember I love you, too

I ran away today, ran from the noise, ran away
Don't wanna go back to that place, but don't have no choice, no way
It ain't easy growin' up in World War III
Never knowin' what love could be, well I've seen
I don't want love to destroy me like it did my family

With the wrong kinda man
And she paid with her life
For loving that man
So we cannot ignore
we must look for the signs
And maybe next time we might save

A town mouse came to visit a country mouse. The country mouse lived in a field and gave her visitor all she had, péa and wheat.. The town mouse nibbled it for a white then said:
_"You''re so thin because your food is so poor. Come and see how we live inthe town."

so the country mouse went to visit her.They waited until night-time, then the town mouse led her guest through a crack into the dining room, then they both climbed onto the table.The country mouse had never seen such fine fare.

_"you''re right," she said," our food is poor. I will come to live in the town too."
No sooner had she said so , a man with a candle came into the room and chased the mice. They barely managed to escape through the crack.
_" NO", said the country mouse." My house in the field is better.I may have no sweetmeats , but i never know such fear."

physics it also had to cool down.
