#NAILLinkup – Diamonds – China Glaze Fade into Hue and Shimmer Polish Jennifer

Hi honies!

It’s the weekend, yay! Never comes too soon, huh?

This weekend, I have a big exciting project for the blog. I’ve been mulling it over for months, and have decided to take the plunge. Basically, I’m going to transfer over to WordPress.org. That means I’ll keep the same domain name and everything, but the blog will become self-hosted, so I can mess about with themes and stuff more 😉

Either it will go very smoothly, with a bit of luck and help from my bloke, who is a computer programmer. But if it doesn’t, and things go a bit squiffy over the next few days, don’t panic! You can always check out my Twitter feed or Instagram to check where I’m at…

Today’s nail art is an upgrade on the mani I’ve been wearing for the past few days. I love China Glaze Fade into Hue! It’s pastelly enough for spring, yet super saturated, and very shiny! So I did a quick touch up, and added the nail art over the top. While I decided what to do to get the diamonds into the theme, I did a quick glitter gradient with Shimmer Polish Jennifer on my little (pinky) finger.

Anny Bloody Return with Shimmer Polish Eva and Mary Nail art

It’s nearly Friday! I’m glad this week is going by fast, it’s not been a very easy one. Although, I had a nice moment on Wednesday evening. On Wednesdays, I usually have a long day, but this one was especially stressful due to some last-minute cancellations. So I left the office later than I would have liked, and as I was going through my usual route to get home, encountered an American couple. Lost tourists in Paris, trying to make their way to Versailles, so I gave them some quick advice and ran on to catch my train.

Then, I realised that my train was cancelled, and that I would probably be catching the same one as them, so I went back to find them and helped make sure they catch it okay; and when we were nearly at the station, helped to make sure they found the taxi rank okay. Anyway, it sounds silly, but they were such lovely people, it was nice to have a little chat and feel like I was doing something really useful 🙂

Another thing that really brightens a bad day for me, is when I get surprise nail mail from a blogging buddy. I swear that Sabrina from the Polish Alcoholic has supplied a good percentage of my stash now, she is so generous! And I especially love putting those polishes to one side, to pull out when I need a little pick-me-up. They’re just extra special because someone picked them out just for me, ya know?

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 20. 3D

Whoops! I’m behind again…

In my defence, I have a very good reason. You see, we’re having a huge heat wave at the moment, which (1) makes a lot of my nail polish a nightmare to work with. And (2) means I’m not happy unless I’m getting a tan ! you’ll have to forgive me – and I promise, I am using SPF !

You’ll also have to forgive me that I’m struggling to get my colours right now, the tan’s developing on a daily basis, and I can’t quite keep up with what colour my skin is supposed to be, lol

The challenge is hotting up now, so this is the last opportunity I can see for keeping it simple !

OMD Rather Awesome Challenge – 19. Glitter

Hey ladies! Happy Friday!

How has your week been? Mine’s been pretty tough, work is very intense right now, and I don’t feel like my heart is really in it. At least it should only last a couple more weeks before it calms down.

Still, it’s hard to be down when you’ve got glittery nails, huh? I actually wore this one to work (my boss was busy, lol). With a summery, lilacy dress, I felt like a fairy, haha!

I’m not even going to try to describe this polish ! It’s like having shimmering water on your nails ! I cannot wait to wear this with a tan (if the sun ever comes out!) – but it’ll also make a great frosty polish for the winter 🙂
