This is American Beauty from the Canadian exclusive Runway collection. I had a shat load I wanted to write about it, but frankly, I'm not feeling it. So I'll just vomit up the notes I took on this when I wore it, which was a month ago.
-Deep plum in lower lights, lightens up in sunlight to purply red
-Sometimes looks blood red
-Pink, red, blue shimmer
-Three coats, fine at two
When I first saw pics of this I wanted it because it looked red and I regretted not getting it. And then StBF bought it for me. When I saw the bottle, I swore mine was mislabelled, it did not look red, it was purple. I was so disappointed. And StBF was like, "that is American Beauty, hmpff." So I looked some more and found everyone had different pics. At that point I figured I had to wear it and see for myself. And now I understand.
Question of the post: Do you have any nicknames? If so, what are they and why?
In real life, my most prevalent nicknames are Denger and Little One. Denger because it's a modification of my last name, which is Deng. I refuse to be called Deng because it sounds too much like dang. (Back story: I went to a Catholic school and kids would find ways of undermining authority at any opportunity. So they'd use my full name to swear, instead of just saying dang. And then when the teacher reprimanded them, they'd just say they were saying my name. I hated it. Absolutely hated it. So to this day, I will not allow anyone to call me Deng.) And my second nickname is Little One because I'm 5'1" and, well, little. So what about you guys?
