April Challenge – Day 22 – Neon

I hope your week has started well ! My shoulder pain is calming down, I’m still moving around like an old lady, but it’s a lot better than it was yesterday, so I even dare hope to be back to normal tomorrow !

I work right by a Lancel shop in Paris and they have a bag in their spring range that I am totally in love with – click the link here to see it. I could totally never afford it, and even if I could, well, I would really do something better with that money instead of buy a bag. So I’ll never own it, but if any of you ladies spot an imitation of this bag (even a bad one – actually, a bad one is less likely to get stolen!) please please let me know – I will love you forever !Especially if it’s not in real leather…

So, back to nails !

I don’t have many neon polishes – I count 3 exactly – so this was a struggle for me! I grabbed China Glaze’s Japanese Koi and did some fish scales. Not the best, but it could have been worse 🙂

Which neons would you recommend for my stash, girls? Should I wait for the Neons on the Shore collection from China Glaze, or are there already some great ones out there?

April Challenge – Day 21 – Flowers

Hello everyone, I hope you’re having a good weekend !

I love floral manis, especially in the spring ! This was a great excuse to get Melon Balla (Piper Polish) out, and I dotted some daisies on it to make the flowers. Back when I swatches Melon Balla it was a tiny bit thick for my tastes, so I thinned it down a bit and let it sit for a few hours before using it. No seperation or sinkage, so that’s good news for anyone else who might want to thin this polish out 🙂

April Challenge – Day 20 – Border Mani

Hello again! So it’s day 20 of the challenge already… How did that happen? We have done 2/3 already!

I actually did this mani 3 times before it felt good enough to show you… In the end, I settled for a metallic dot border mani. It looks okay, but I’m not sure that it’s very flattering to my nail shape. Still, challenges are all about trying something new!

The base colour is Nails Inc Special Effects in Stratford – a pinky-gold that started off sheer but was opaque at the second coat! I do love pinky-goldiness for spring, it matches my pretty pinky spring coat that has a pinky-gold zipper and buttons. Have I said ‘pinky’ enough?

It’s pinky, It’s pinky and the brain brain brain brain, brain brain brain brain, …

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 13 – Sponging

I am so sorry for all of the spamming !

I’ll be back on Sunday, so I’ll post the very last mani then, but since I don’t know how much internet connection I’ll have until then, here’s my post for day 13!

The theme is sponging, and I have seen this mani in pastel colours with white dots before, and couldn’t wait to try it out. I also wanted to see what Lapiz of Luxury and Butler Please (both by Essie) looked like together, and the answer is – very pretty !
