My Top 5 Favorite Songs of the Moment

I have been listening to a few songs non-stop lately. You know those songs that you play over and over again and promise yourself that this is the last time, but when it's over you play it again? Well, these are the ones that I am like that with right now.
1. Rolling in the Deep by Adele- My favorite song right now. I think it is from like the number one album in America. I've listened to this over and over. In fact, I'm listening to it as we speak (actually, more like as I write and you read. Which are probably happening at two different times). One thing-what does 'rolling in the deep' mean? Can anyone explain that to me? Be sure to check out Haley Reinhart from American Idol's version. It is amazing. Maybe even, dare I say, better than the original??
2. Rocketeer by Far East Movement- I know this came out quite a while ago (a year ago? Two?), but I was dreadfully unaware and just recently started listening to it. It is a very VERY different from Like a G6, another song that never gets old. Rocketeer sounds very smooth and urban and kinda black and white, but not like an old movie, like a sophisticated palate (does that even make sense?).
3. Drops of Jupiter by Train- Now, this is a very old song (or so it seems to me). I'd subconsciously heard it for years, but it wasn't until I looked it up on youtube that it all clicked. It's the one that goes "Tell me, did the wind sweep? Did you finally get a chance to sail along the light of day? Head back to the Milky way?" (please excuse me if I got some of the words wrong). This song is very peaceful and makes me feel happy.
4. Judas by Lady Gaga- To be honest, I did not like her song that came before this one, Born This Way, at all. So I was really happy that this was one came out. I think some people are getting way too worked about it. I'm pretty sure she's just using everything as a metaphor. But it has a really upbeat, kinda robotic, tone.
5. What Hurts the Most by Rascal Flatts- Now, I'm not as addicted to this song as the others, but I once I start listening I play it over about five times. I love the beginning. It just sounds very sad, but steady. I love the way he says the lyrics. I'm also a sucker for Southern accents!

On another note, I'm getting quite sick of Tinie Tempah's Written in the Stars. I was already not a rap fan, but add this to the fact that they play it constantly on the radio, and you have a recipe for dislike.

Revlon Top Speed Fast Drying Nail Enamel Review

So, I have not written a post in a long time. I'm sorry, I have just been so busy lately. I'm having my birthday party the day after tomorrow. AHHHH!!! Also, I am going to an amusement park tomorrow as the end of the year trip. That's right, school ends on Thursday. I don't know about you, but I think that is insanely early. What is it like where you live? We always used to go until around June 18th or 23rd.

Anyways, the point of this post was to right a review of a new nail polish I bought, Revlon Top Speed Fast Drying Nail Enamel. Would I purchase this again? Definitely not. It was $5.99, which I think is way overpriced because you could get an OPI nail polish for just a couple dollars more. But, it was 40% off and I had $1 off coupon, so I decided to try it. I got it in Electric, which is not really a neon, but a bright sunflower yellow color. It's really pretty, I got tons of compliments. But this is where the good things end. It really does live up to it's name: it converted to that semi-sticky state where the brush starts leaving a mark when you sweep it over within five seconds. So I had to get a big glob on and quickly sweep it over my entire nail. Needless to say, my cuticles were a big yellow mess. And it didn't even look good. I got a whole bunch of those tiny little air bubbles on every single nail. What's worse is that it doesn't dry completely and stays sticky for quite a while afterwards. I used about half the bottle just trying to get all my nails done one time. The finish was very matte and rather hideous.

Bottom line: I would not repurchase. This was a terrible nail polish, although I quite like the regular (non-fast drying) ones. At best I would recommend this for your toes, where you won't have to see all those little bubbles up close.
