Weekly Read and Polish #2

This week's Weekly Read is:

The Curious Life of Human Cadavers
by Mary Roach

It is an absolutely fascinating book...
but as you can imagine... VERY morbid.
It's not for those who have a hard time
handling their own mortality.

This week's nail polish:

Green with polka dots.

There's even a mention of nail polish in the book,
lol, nothing too morbid, just a med student who
was taken aback by finding nail polish on one of
the hands they had to work on.

Here are the colors I used:

First layer (2 coats):
Sinful Colors in the color Happy Ending
Second layer (1 coat):
Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in the color Teeny Greeny Bikini
Third layer (1 coat):
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in the color Chartreuse Chase

Sinful Colors are just awesome!I just discovered them about two weeks ago,
and this is the second color I've bought from them, and it's fantastic.
The best part, other than the longevity?
They're only $1.99!!!
You just can't beat that!!!

I love Sally Hansen products too,
they all hold up really well, and the Insta-Dri *does*dry really fast. Plus the colors are lovely.
They're a bit pricier, though, at anywhere from
$4-8 dollars a bottle, depending
on the type.


  1. Ah! I read this book on college for my Creative Non Fiction class and LOVED it!

    1. According to Goodreads, I'm about 49% of the way through it, and so far it has been absolutely amazing... a bit terrifying, but amazing. I will absolutely be checking out other books by Mary Roach! I love her very candid style.

  2. That is really cute how you tie in the nail polish colors to the book you are reading! :)
    Green is definitely a good fit for that book!

  3. Oh, I've been wanting to read that book. It sounded really fascinating. And pretty nail polish. :)

  4. I loved the book, and I love your nail polish!

    And because I suck at CAPTCHA, your blog probably doesn't think I'm human!
