25? No Way Jose!

 **Today is the last day to enter my birthday giveaway!**

Today is my 25th birthday! I have peers saying how old we're getting. I actually like getting older now. I feel like I skipped that whole 18-24 wild and crazy stage. I think I grew up too fast, so it's nice to see everyone starting to settle down and act like mature adults now :P.

In other ways, I still feel like a kid. It's bizarre. I vividly remember childhood experiences. I remember elementary school. I remember our school song, and buddy-fun day at the end of the school year where we got to play games for prizes. That was 14 years ago, which seems like a long time ago, but really doesn't either? I know I'm contradicting myself, but hopefully some of you will understand.

Anywho, last week I was able to crush my #1 biggest lemming ever, China Glaze No Way Jose, so I'm wearing it for my birthday!

No Way Jose
No Way Jose is a medium lavender with silver micro glitter.

This is actually a little more red-toned than in the picture. My camera tends to turn all red-toned purples into blue-toned purples. It's beautiful. I love this color. I've been looking for this one for years. I'm thrilled it's finally mine! What I noticed is these tiny glitters, had a slight iridescence to them, that I didn't know existed. All kinds of win, there's not much more to say.

Happy Birthday to me! I know that sounds conceited, but you're allowed to be a little selfish on your birthday...right? :)

  13. Congrats on the polish!  I almost feel the same way myself about my friends and "settling down."  I had that wild stage, and it lasted *gasp* a whole year.  I was just never really into all that. It got exhausting!  Anyway, Happy Birthday!  Hope it's a great one!

  28. Happy Birthday! Hope it's been great so far. And yes, you are allowed to be a little bit self-centered on your birthday; I used to have a Happy Birthday to Me pin that I would wear every year. It's you day! Do what you want! Anyways...this polish is so pretty! Glad you finally got to have it and your birthday is the perfect day to wear it.  :)
