NMM: Picture Polish Wysteria
I adore this beautiful lavender colour, wisteria, by picture polish. This is 3 coats with Sally Hansen top coat. I nails are slowly growing back and I’m back at the squoval shape (or I’m getting there).
This is definitely one of my top 5 favourites out of their collection. It’s the perfect colour for spring! The formula for this was great, it applies smoothly and is opaque enough to use just 1 or 2 coats but as always I did 3.
In addition to sharing with you this colour, I also wanted to inform you that Picture Polish has some great everyday deals which you can read more about here. They really are a steal!
I thought I would share with y’all something that I’ve been playing recently: a little action roguelike called Delver. The game first piqued my interest several months ago, when it was in very early alpha and didn’t yet have a website; I downloaded it then and was charmed by the Minecraft-esque visuals and simple, no-explanation-needed premise. It came to find again recently, so I decided to check out the progress. It’s been polished and expanded significantly from when I last played, and needless to say I’m very satisfied.
You start off looking into a mysterious hallway, just begging you to go in. What could await you there?
A HOST OF FEARSOME AND POWERFUL ENEMIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO:
DIRE BAT, AND ASSOCIATE
THE THING THAT I DIDN’T GO NEAR
The dungeon is randomly generated, and your objective is to head deeper and deeper into it, finding increasingly powerful weapons and gear, fighting off hordes of monsters, and avoiding traps. As for what’s at the bottom…
I’ll leave that for you to find out. Not because I wanna tease, but because this is a game I don’t want to spoil for anyone. I’ve been playing the up-to-date version for the last few days, and while individual playthroughs don’t last all that long regardless of whether you win or lose, the randomly-generated aspect gives the game amazing replay value.
One more thing though: when you die, you die. As in, your save file is gone. It’s like Minecraft in hardcore mode.
So, while I wouldn’t say the game in actively difficult (although I have yet to beat it completely), I would still recommend treading carefully. You don’t wanna die to something stupid, like a Magic Asshole.
Personally, I expect very good things from this game in the future.
“When You're Going Through It, I'll Be There To Hold Your Hand” ; to Taylor Swift.
I will spend the rest of my life
with reddened marks
deep embedded bruises of fingertips
from how hard you squeezed
to let me know you were there
when no one else was.
I will walk around this earth forever
with your untouchable ghost
whispering in my ear
whenever the sinking feeling
starts up again.
I will be followed straight down until the end
by a sea of words
once hidden away in the secrecy
of your journal
lapping at my feet
whenever I get stuck
in my own personal
I will forever hear your voice
calling me from the other side
of every mountain I’ll ever have to climb.
And I really think
you deserve to know all of this
I think you should know
that I have met others, as well
with the same
on their hands
and they show these
to the world
without an ounce of fear
because you taught them to do so.
Every thing I’ve written
in the past seven years
was written only
because you told me
that I had it in me.
Taylor Swift Charms the Crowd
With so many female artists writhing across the Billboard stage in barely there dresses and their male counterparts strutting back and forth with exaggerated (and obnoxious) braggadocio, the infectiously adorable and fun staging to the beginning of Taylor Swift’s performance of “22” was almost jarring. But T-Swift—who went on to pick up the big Billboard 200 Album award—is clearly onto something. Once she navigated the backstage halls, she sang the opening verse from the big stage, with the entire audience already out of their seats, unabashedly singing and dancing along to the refreshingly chaste—and catchy—earworm.
