MMM: vol5

Hey guys! Happy Monday. Sorry this post is getting up so late but its midterm week. Oh the joy though because this is my last midterm week of undergrad EVER. That graduation date is just creepin on up and I couldn't be happier/more petrified.

Anyway, I really enjoyed last weeks mani color the OPI DS in Radiance. That super shiny metallic silver was just so much fun. So I went to Ulta searching for a gold dupe. The sales girl that was helping me suggested one by butter London. I walked out with 'The Full Monty'.

I have to be perfectly honest, the shine factor of this polish didn't quite hit the mark as far as what I was looking for. It's a nice enough color, but I'm basically feeling 'meh' about this color. It also isn't wearing as well as I'd like my polishes to. Perhaps its the metallic polishes in general that don't hold up, because the DS didn't wear all that well either. I'm not entirely giving up on the butter brand. I'll try it again with another color. Even if it is a little pricey at $14.

Movie time!

The movie stars Alex Pettyfer, Dianna Aragon, and Timothy Olyphant. I'm kind of in love with Timothy Olyphant by the way. Hitman....Justified....yeah love him. Anyway the movie was pretty decent. Good vs Evil, aliens with cool powers, high school drama and angst and the like. Alex's character John is kind of like Superman. His home planet was taken over by bad guys, and he fled to Earth to grow up and defeat the bad guys. He falls in love with Sarah, Aragon's character, who is a cute photographer in small town Paradise Ohio. The Mogadorians are the bad guys....they look kind of ...well strange. The have these weird gills on their faces and they are huge and tall with crazy head tattoos. Not exactly scary but what are you gonna do? All in all it was a decent film with some adorable man candy.
