let’s flashback to the summer of 2014. i was interning in the beauty industry and just finding out about these things called beauty blogs and youtube channels. before this internship, i was never really interested in beauty – before you ask, i was interning in public relations – and really didn’t know much about the beauty world. but as i worked more, i learned more, and i loved more. ok, now to the point. all i wanted that summer was the ysl nail polish in bleu celadon. it was the perfect pastel turquoise – not as chalky as essie mint candy apple, a little more pastel, and it looked like an insanely beautiful formula. i watched my first beauty love, vivianna does makeup, wear it in videos and i wanted it so bad. and yet, it was gone. damn those limited editions for us who are always late to the game!
after searching and searching, i gave up on this beautiful polish. i accepted the fact that i would never have it. i searched for dupes, and i tried many similar polishes. i continued to dream about bleu celadon, but i had accepted the fact that it would never be mine.
ok now fast forward to 2 days ago. when i wandered into the cutest little cosmetics store i had never been in. and there. it. was. bleu celadon. and now it’s mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
it’s amazing what an incredibly overpriced nail polish can do for your spirit.
