Wake Me Up When September Ends

(Apologies for the lame title...)
Today is September 1st!? Crazy stuff, August has literally flown past. In under four weeks I'll be back at Uni starting the final year of my degree. That's kind of scary but I can't wait to get back to it and be learning stuff and having things to fill my days with other than looking at things I can't afford on the Internet and going on lots of long walks.
September would also, in any other year, be my birthday month. I'm not having a birthday this year though. Nuh-uh. I will not turn 20. I'm going to do 19-part-b and by next year I will be quite ready to be 21. This seems logical to me and my mam tells me she had similar misgivings about leaving her teens so it's fine.
In other news... I got post this morning!


Of course I couldn't wait and had to try out my new nail polishes IMMEDIATELY.

     

This is Pink Smash Up over two coats of Green Grass.
I'm in two minds about the Pink Smash Up. In terms of application, I much prefer it to the Barry M Special Effects, which is the only other shatter polish I've tried yet. But I have to say I'm disappointed by the colour - I was hoping for something a lot brighter. I expect it to show up better over lighter colours but I had wanted to try it over black. I probably will still try this but don't hold out high hopes. The packaging does show it layered over a green and looking a lot more intense than this but hey ho.
Doubtless I'll be sharing the rest of my goodies with you soon!
I have a few posts lined up for the rest of September, including a bit of an update on what I've been up to lately and some very exciting news I had on Tuesday - A few of you may know what I'm referring to here but that's all I'm saying for now!
I've been enjoying reading everyone else's posts about their Models Own goodies so keep them coming girls!

    The year I was 19 was one of my best ever years but 20 was pretty good too. You'll be fine! xxx
