Hello all! I just remembered that I have Instant Upload set up between my Android phone and my Google+ account. I'm not the biggest fan of G+ in general, but this feature sure is EXTREMELY handy.
I have decided not to care much about watermarks for now....should people re-use the pictures, well...I'll consider it a compliment. Honestly, my photos, cuticles, and nails are not all that impressive anyway.
|With the creator of TWEE AND HONEY!|
I didn't have my camera, and my phone was dying, but I'm going to photo-spam you with what I do have! SO GET READY!!!
I wore Cult Nails - I Got Distracted on my fingernails. It is GORGEOUS and I'll give it a proper swatch and review later on!
|Out and about, you see the polish particles more this way!|
|So SHINY and holographic even indoors! This is in my basement.|
I got to the event and I was VERY nervous. Take a peek at the first image I posted above. Amy of Gotham Polish was there, KelBel Cosmetics was there, and OMG Carly of Lacquered Lover was there. These are some damned popular ladies in their own right, and I was able to interact with all of them!! I met the creative genius behind Twee and Honey as well, who actually brought a special little bottle of her nail polish remover along with a special bottle of a glitter topcoat she made especially for us! It was a limited edition shade she named NYC Cultie Meetup, and I am the proud owner of a bottle!!!!!!
Jessie's Girl was there. You know of the cosmetics brand, right? You better! At first, I thought it would be a PR representative and polish enthusiast but she was actually Jessie's Girl - the daughter of the man who created the brand.
This was nail polish and blogger heaven.
It was like feeling like I belong...our love for polish and bloggers tied us together. I could speak all the jargon I want and I happily chatted away the time!
Maria and her husband are absolute angels. They bring generosity and friendliness to a new level, going so far out of their way to arrange things for absolute strangers, but fans of their polishes nonetheless. They had no reason to host the meetup, or do anything, but instead, I am still speechless over all that they did. I ordered my first legal drink (July 30th was my 21st birthday, and I've been advertising it to the world, so see how sneaky I was about it this time! I am sure you all are tired of hearing about it)
So on account of it being my birthday, our extremely friendly waitress at Bowlmor brought me 2 of the drinks I ordered. I asked her who the other one was for and she said that they had mixed up a little extra, and it was my birthday, so I best not complain ;)
Then on top of THAT, Maria told her to put the drink on her own tab. You see what I mean when I say that I am amazed by her generosity? I don't know that she will ever read this post, but today, August 7, is her birthday....so a big huge happy birthday to you as well Maria!!!
|I look pale and ghastly. Blame Flash and my poor attempts at makeup :(|
Maria is on the left looking amazing, and I'm on the right haha.
|I WON OUR BOWLING GAME! w00t|
|Yep, she is Jessie's girl!|
AND THE BEST PART OF THE NIGHT WAS EASILY....
