First Week of Spring - I cannot begin to express how excited/nervous I am for this school quarter! I’m finally taking classes that have held my interest for years. It’s exciting as hell to not be in psych/bio/math classes for once (albeit a little bit scary)! I’m stoked beyond belief! I’m taking Basic Costume Design (which, to my delight, involves a lot of drawing AND painting but sadly, no actual clothing), History of American Fashion, Ballet, Choir, Basic Drawing and Greek mythology! I’ve only been to the first two classes so far and I can proudly say that those are they only lectures in my entire college career that I did not once open my laptop to Facebook/etc. out of boredom.
So since I’m taking ballet for the first time in my life, I spent a few hours on Sunday venturing into the world of tutus to pick up a leotard, tights, and ballet shoes. Afterward, at my trip to Sephora for some new nail polish, some new colors caught my eye. Of course they would be from the newest Sephora by OPI Urban Ballerina Collection, most likely inspired by the latest ballet trend since the release of Black Swan. They had the usual cheesy nail polish names with some really gorgeous soft pinks and grays, with a purple thrown in. I love me some soft colors that are NOT opaque and thankfully, there isn’t a single sheer in sight! It also comes in a mini set of four as pictured below:
Leotard Optional – A fantastic nude color that borders on taupe.
Let’s Plié – For the girls that love the shimmer and glam of the stage.
Shiny Dancer – For the dark ballerina à la Mila Kunis as Lily, the Black Swan
The Way Tutu His Heart - For the prim ballerina à la Natalie Portman as Nina, the White Swan
Who’s Spinning Tonight? – For the badass rebel ballerina.
What do you think? Love it? Or sick of the ballet trend already?
