I'm not even close to catching up on the show, and I'll be missing the premiere since I don't get cable at my parents' house, where I've been camping for the past month while my mom was out of the country. So why am I telling you to watch this show if I'm not even caught up?
One, my sister and I spent a LOT of downtime in our hotel room while we were in the motherland this May. We were either too jetlagged, unaccustomed to the sweltering heat, and in my case, too sick to venture out during most days. But our hotel room had functional air conditioning, a small fridge ... and a TV. I'm forever insisting that trip wasn't a vacation, but the eating polvoron while watching TV part kind of was. There was one channel we watched every day in particular called Velvet, which ran many western programs. Velvet was like Bravo, Style and E! combined; my sister and I don't really watch those types of channels, so everything that aired on Velvet including our formal introduction to "Cougar Town" (apart from all the "Cougar Town" jokes on "Community," of course) was new to us.
Two, I have an excuse to blog Zoya Jules. Jules is Courteney Cox's character on "Cougar Town." If I had to tell you anything about Jules, it is that she is THE "Cougar Town" cougar, and that she and her friends Really. Love. Wine.
I think you get the idea. This makes me incredibly sad because three years ago, I got sick after drinking a tiny glass of ... well, the name escapes me, but I remember thinking that Rinaldi from A Farewell to Arms drank a lot of it. --Which sure narrows it down, because Rinaldi drank anything. Lucky jerk.
Three coats with Cult Nails Wicked Fast.
THIS POLISH. LOOOOOOOVE. As you know, I suck at describing colors, but I will say this: Are you looking for a new sparkly shade that's also office-friendly, or perhaps a polish to go with your new little black (or plum or teal) dress -- something that should be fun but not overwhelming and loud? Then get Jules. I can see how it could have a lobster hands effect on some skin tones, something I narrowly avoided. Whew. I really love this. It's such a delicate champagne gold glass fleck (very small particles) with undertones that are supposedly taupe, but are more mauve on me.
I had no issues with application. It's easier to use thin coats when applying Jules, and I would recommend three for maximum glitz. Maximum understated glitz. It dried quickly with Wicked Fast, and wore well for three days. I had minimal tip wear after that, which you can see here, but I would have been happy to rock this one for a whole week if I didn't have to chop my nails down. Those things grow so fast.
Jules was part of Zoya's Spring 2011 Intimate collection. 2011, can you believe it? I remember reading Scrangie's review at a bar on NYE (and BF asking me, "What are you reading?" My reply: "NOTHIIIIIIIIIING") There's a Zoya promo on right now that's breaking the internet -- 3 polishes for $10, including shipping -- so if you are looking for a third polish to add to your order, I highly recommend this one.
Anyone else share my love for this Zoya, or an unfortunate inability to drink wine? If you watch "Cougar Town," who is your favorite character? Who do you think has the best style (and nails, of course)? Laurie has my vote for all of these things. Surprise, surprise. Are you excited to see the show move to another network? What new title would you bestow upon "Cougar Town" if you were able to change the title? Talk to me about your favorite episode, even if I haven't seen it. Fellow members of the Larmy, I WANT TO KNOW.
P.S. Sorry if this post seems rushed. My family is hosting two houseguests this week, and although I'm happy to have them here, I also have to find time when I can get it. I actually wrote this post while everyone was watching THE BEST CHRISTMAS MOVIE OF ALL TIME.
