China Glaze Hunger Games - Foie Gras

Ello. How are you this evening? I'm in rather a good mood but more on that later in a more detailed post. I thought I'd quickly share one of my new polishes from the Hunger Games collection by China Glaze. I have quite a few China Glaze polishes and I'm always impressed by them, first of all the bottles seem huge 14ml. Also the brush is long and narrow for precision application and the colour payoff is great this is two coats and no top coat.

I feel a new polish purchase coming on plus I still need Seche Vite and I really want to try OPI nail envy for my poor abused nails.

It's Typed in the Stars

I just thought I would write a quick 'lil post here as I came across a great inforgraphic (I know, I know but honestly it's a good one). Most may not know, in fact I don't think anyone does but I'm a big fan of a great type face and font. I spent many an hour in the old days flicking through all the fonts in Word 1997, marvelling over all the different styles and options. I am also a great fan of simple designs and clean lines, therefore I am a champion of Helvetica and Futura and I laugh in the face of Comic Sans, then again who doesn't.

For all fans of the font I suggest that you check out the documentary Helvetica.
Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which recently celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives.
