Mail + Nice 'n Easy haircolour + NOTW

YEY! Today I finally received the leggings I ordered through eBay like... almost 3 weeks ago? I ordered them on March 21 (if I remember well) and the seller shipped them the same day. I started to freak out some days ago as I'm so impatient, then I realized the leggings were shipped all the way from South Korea... and I live in Canada -_- Anyway, shipping was free so I can't complain, and the seller shipped very fast! And it's not his fault if snail mail is... well... slow like a snail =P

 the package along with my May issue of Fashion magazine (it's a beauty special issue! Yey!)

That's a pretty sleek packaging! I'm definitely keeping the box ^^

A few pictures of me modelling the leggings =P

front and back (don't ask why I took off my shoes LOL)

I love them so much! This is my first experience with leggings and OMG those are so comfty! As they are winter leggings, they are made of polyester and spandex, and the inside is so soft and warm. I'm sure their thickness will keep me warm on colder days (=

There is only one thing I like less - but it's not a big deal - it's the stitching in the back: 

Sorry for the butt shot!

It's not too obvious (except if you look that closely), but it bugs me a little. Do your leggings have stitchings like that too?

I bought them from this eBay store for $8.90 USD if anyone is interested.

I also dyed my hair today with Clairol Nice 'n Easy in 121A Natural Deep Brown.

This is my favourite hair dye. I find it's the only one that gives me true radiant hair color that doesn't fade. Oh and their Color-blend technology really works! As I always go for the darkest brown available, this shade is my favourite.

Here's a picture of me before dying my hair:

It's really greasy and gross xD. 
I wish I had a closer picture of my roots though, but if you look closely, you can see that my dark blonde/light brown hair is growing out.

Chilling in the bathroom while waiting for the dye to set:

And here are the final results:

Excuse my undone hair, I let it hair-dry.

In real life, it looks black, but when I take pictures without flash, you can see that it's dark brown.

While waiting for my hair to dry, I did my nails with Revlon Nail Enamel in Minted. Yes, I finally got my hands on it! =D

I've been coveting it so much because I've been obsessed with Essie Mint Candy Apple since it came out...

but I knew I would never pay so much for a nail polish, so I was happy to discover something similar: the new Revlon Nail Enamel in Minted from the Spring 2010 Collection.

Left to right: Super Lustrous Lipgloss in Peach Petal, Coral Reef, Pink Pop, Fire Cracker, Lilac Pastelle; Nail Enamel in Minted, Lilac Pastelle; Limited Edition ColorStay Eyeshadow Quad in Summer Suedes.

I wasn't sure when it would be out in Quebec, so I kept checking out for that well coveted shade in my local drugstores everytime I had a chance. I was so surprised to finally find the new Spring 2010 Collection display at my local Uniprix monday! I didn't hesitated a second to get Minted (not to mention it was on sale for $4.99!) The lipglosses looked so yummy too - especially Pink Pop - but I had to let them since I have way too many that I have to use up first.

Here's what Minted looks like with three coats on and Sally Hansen Ultimate Shield Fortifying Base & Top Coat:

It looks messy because I didn't take the time to clean up, I was too excited to share those pictures with you!

It's an absolutely gorgeous milky mint green. I'm not disappointed with it, but I'm not amazed by the quality of this highly raved about nail polish. It took me three coats to achieve the perfect opacity, not to mention that the brush is so thin! I don't think I will be bying any more Revlon nail polishes, except if they come out with another wonderful shade like this one!
