Friday Nails: Break time!

Hey Strangekittens. This week i’m giving my poor busted nails a break. I did however try out Sephora by OPI’s new matte topcoat, over a sparkly Sally Hansen HD! It doesn’t show up too well on my Galaxy’s camera :< It’s quite a cool effect in person, though. Anyway, to tide you over, here are the cutest nail trends from around the web! Matte nails, obviously. I’m in love with this right now. Metallics. … Continue reading

Monday Meow: Link Roundup

Hey Strangekittens! This weekend’s links are a mixed bag of thinkers and shiny things. Religious Belief Decreases with Analytic Thinking – I’m not surprised. It should. Logic should dispute most religions. Chloë Sevigny was a loner – Poor thing. Some places don’t appreciate us creative types :< i had the same issue growing up. Hell, people still call me a freak, lol! 25 Ways to wear a trench: Spotted in Toronto – I love trenchcoats. That … Continue reading

Monday Meow: Earth Day Link Roundup

Hey Strangekittens! Did you have a good Earth Day weekend? Mine was pretty chill. I played WAY too much TERA Online though!

Yesterday was Earth Day, so I thought i’d pick up some earthy-links to share this week.

Nail Art With Real Leaves (And other ideas) This is a pretty cool idea. You’d have to find something that wouldn’t wilt when you stuck it on/used a topcoat, though. Or maybe that would look cool? Who knows, I might try it.

10 Eco-friendly Fashion Brands  ‘Nuff said. Gotta have more natural brands around.

Nick Knight Kitten and Couture Photoshoot  Sorry dude, I’m so stealing this idea.

10 Uses of Google Earth That Have Made Positive Impacts on the World These are all such amazing ideas.

Friday Nails: Tropical Flower

Hey Strangekittens. This week’s look is a bright, practically neon blue/pink look. I learnt a new trick from theweejenny. Usually for French tips you’d use nail stickers right? But they’re kinda pricey, especially if you do it a lot. Either you develop a steady hand, or use tape like me, but then you don’t get a nice curve. Well, theweejenny showed me these things called binder reinforcement stickers. They’re office supplies, … Continue reading

Denied access to the morning-after pill by an anti-choice pharmacist

Hey Strangekittens. This just recently happened in my city. I’m honestly not shocked, just appalled. Denied access to the morning-after pill by an anti-choice pharmacist | Vancouver, Canada | Straight.com. Whether the pharmacist is anti-choice or not, she has chosen a job where practice is governed by LAW, not by her personal beliefs. This was a disgusting abuse of power on her part. Sadly, this happens every day. In Canada, the Plan B pill is available … Continue reading
