The first love letter I wrote
in green magic marker
the back of a grocery list:
ravioli I love you
The eight months spent apart
sending post cards of the Great Wall
and come home soons.
The airport reunion
the crush of harsh-mouthed strangers
wo tai ai ni le.
Two years of goodbyes,
and each growing,
to nights making up in fingerprints
what they lack in sleep,
that remind us,
so practiced in this art,
that it may be for ever,
and to cling
because they are not enough.
cheesewhisker asked: Hey I just wanted to know where you get your nail art supplies?
Like my brushes? The ones I use most I got off of Amazon. They are part of the MASH Nail Art brush kit, with something like 15 brushes in it for 10 dollars. Amazing deal for surprisingly really nice quality brushes. As for like rhinestones and studs and glitter and all that, most of it is either from bornprettystore.com or ebay.
turnaround-and-runaway asked: Hi! I was just wondering what product you use to remove nail polish from your nails and brushes. Do you know a more efficient method other than just nail polish remover and a cotton ball? And in a post a while ago I saw you say you used pure acetone to clean your brushes, but I'm a bit concerned about using it because it's pretty powerful. I love your nail art by the way!
For removing from my nails, I use Zoya Remove Plus, which is a little expensive but SOOOO worth it. I get it in the huge 32oz bottles now and I can’t use anything else because it’s just so wonderful. Removes polishes just as well as pure acetone, but isn’t nearly as drying. Also doesn’t smell completely awful.
For cleaning my brushes I do use straight up acetone because that’s what gets them cleanest. I have a video on how I clean those if you wanna check it out! It’s definitely powerful, but I haven’t had too many problems with it, honestly, and your brushes are gonna get a lot of wear and tear regardless of what you use, so I don’t think it’s too big of a problem. Thanks!
Trying to have happy thoughts
It is true I cried reading the blog
of my tenth grade best friend
and her story about the horse
and how it calmed her down
but I remembered her spraying
pieces of a board game across the floor
because she hadn’t won and
I couldn’t say why the picture of her
in rain boots and a frumpy skirt
made me miss her and why
a letter written to her future self would
elicit such emotion that I felt acid and
It is true the last time we spoke
she was behind a cash register
and both our lips were pursed
and she folded and refolded
the same jeans at least five times
before placing them with utmost care
but I remember her smile hadn’t changed
and she still pushed her tongue
against the backs of her teeth so that pink
peeked through the gaps and
It is true I remembered the time
she tried on my bra because
she said it belonged
to a doll and she laughed and
I laughed too but I didn’t
and maybe what she wrote
about Scorpios dealing with pain
has something to do with it
because I wasn’t born in November
I’m just trying to remember
what there is to miss.
Anonymous asked: Please post more of your poetry. The recently posted one is hauntingly beautiful and so incredibly vivid. I like how relatable it is without being overtly so. Kudos. Post more?
Thank you so much! I will for sure. I’ll just make sure I put enough nail stuff in there so people don’t get too bogged down with my writing haha. :) this message was much appreciated.
