Greetings from (now) sunny Novato! — home of the most intense hailstorm I’ve experienced in years.
No joke. Last night around 3 in the morning, I awoke to the most frightening sound! A roar of thunder that shook my world to its foundation (and must have terrified Tabs), and then a deafening tick-tack-tack sound from what I quickly realized was hail pelting the house.
It wasn’t raining when I went to bed last night, but the storm must have blown in from the ocean some time after midnight. El Hub said he was awake for a little while before the thunderous boom that jolted me awake, laying there with his eyes closed. He saw the flash of lightning through his closed eyelids, and then the counting, 1-2-3, before the big boom. Three miles from the heart of the storm.
Anywho, the weather looks pretty good now, both here and in the Balearic Islands (in case you were wondering). Partly cloudy and mid-sixties? I’ll take that, and to go with it, swatches of the three Nail Colours from the new Becca Balearic Love collection, $15 each.
The first thing I noticed about these polishes — I mean, after the colors — is how thick they are. Two coats deliver full coverage.
I really like the wide brush! It just sweeps over the nail, covering such a large area that I only need about three swipes per layer.
I’m still testing for wear time, but so far so good. Here are some swatches to whet your appetite.
