OK so I was relieved of any corporate oriented office activities this week and I felt like a bottle of champagne getting rid of the cork - it popped off and out spluttered all the idea-bubbles. I even managed two Skittelettes!!! So enough of all the talk - just pics now please:
Ingredients (from left)
Picture Polish Tiffany, Shimmer Polish Sonja, Opi Buff is my Vampire
Pinkie: two coats of Picture Polish Tiffany
Ring and index: three coats of Shimmer Polish Sonja
Middle and thumb: three coats of Opi Buff Is My Vampire
...and this is the dress I wore it with
I haven't picked-up many from the Opi San Francisco Collection - most of them while very beautiful - appear quite basic to me and hands down - I do own enough of them. But I haven't the Foggiest just had to come along home:
I applied two buttery fantastically easy coats of I haven't the Foggiest over Essence XXL Nail Thickener and finished with Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer. Bummer - I forgot to take a picture of my nails with my dress but that one was a no brainer - it went with a black shift dress.
Summer came back full blast once more this week and I was so happy that once more I could wear some of my favorite summer dresses. I love a good pattern any day - however, if I have a patterned dress I like to keep my nails simple. I love a good contrast any day but I don't like busy dress and busy nails together. Lovely Nati from the Polished Polygot sent me wonderful, wonderful stuff she bought for me during her vacation. I tell ya, I am still floored that she thought of me during her vacation - Nati I am still so touched by this - thank you again "mille fois"!!! And look at this Debby polish - isn't it awesome?
Time for my next Skittelette:
Ingredients (as always from left):
Cult Nails Mayhem, Cult Nails Tempest, Bourjois Green Fizz, Bourjois Bleu Fabuleux
I applied two coats of Cult Nail Tempest over my pinkie, index and thumb. I love white nails on pictures but IRL looking at them I just cannot seem to get used to. Cult Nails Mayhem - the clear holo topper released in their Road Trip Collection was the perfect choice to sort of diminish the tooth paste effect mind you - there wasn't much holo to be seen against the blending white but for me it was just perfect. I applied three thin coats of Bourjois Green Fizz on my ring and two coats of Bourjois Bleu Fabuleux on my middle finger. This Skittelette went with another favorite dress of mine:
Friday was probably one of the last warm summer days here - as I type this the sky is overcast and showers of rain sweep over our village - so a holo was in place. I will review this polish at length in a separate post so I will sort of show you a sneak peak:
You look at three coats of Colors by Llarowe Little Red Corvette - two coats provide enough opacity but I wanted the base color to be more of a saturated red to go with this dress:
You still with me? I am impressed - if you made it to the end of this post - THANK YOU for your patience!!! It was great fun to master the challenge of matching nails and dresses but I have to admit, it did cause me some brain racking the one or the other day. Melissa, you definitely got me thrilled with this game and I will repeat the challenge soon :-).
I look forward to reading your comments - if you are still up to it after this monster post - thanks for bearing with me ;-)
