But now I'm beginning to wonder about the connection between lemmings (the game character) and lemmings (our polish desires). I mean we get lemmings (polish desires) from seeing awesome polishes on other peoples blogs, and then getting the uncontrollable desire to have that same polish. It seems that we are maybe a little like those lemmings (games characters) in following what we see other people do. Umm food for thought.
Stash - So we all know what this one is, and no its not the same one as used during Movember when we say to our mates "Nice stash bro"... (Aussie gals will know what I'm talking about). I just love the way nail polish bloggers use this term. Instead of having a nail polish collections, we have stashes. And I just love seeing peoples pictures of the stashes, and how they store and organise them.
Haul - Another word that I just love how nail polish bloggers use. When we get nail polish in the mail, its not just a delivery, its a haul. "Look what I just hauled in", like you've just been fishing and you caught a fish 'this big'.
Shrinkage - Alright, when I first saw someone writing on their blog about shrinkage, I had a little giggle like a school girl, just like Homer Simpson when he says 'titmouse' tee hee hee. Seriously now, last time I heard the word shrinkage was from my husband after jumping into our pool and finding it A LOT colder than expected. But now I understand, in the nail polish world this means where the polish dries and pulled back from the edge of the nail, thus shrinking as it dries.
Konad - Another word that when I first saw it, I was like "what, are you serious, you named your product Konad". When I told my husband I bought some Konad plates online, he did a double take and said "you bought what...", "Konad" I said, "not Gonad". Google it if you don't know what I mean.
And now, because this is a nail polish blog, here are some pretty sparkly nails.
This is Nubar Violet Sparkle, three coats with base and top coat. Very beautiful, bitch to remove.
I've learnt so much from nail polish blogs, where would I be without you.
