(Yes? No? HOMIES? We’ll go with it for now.)
I’m having an uncharacteristically good hair day today. And that NEVER happens, so it’s of magnitude that is simply worth sharing.
I woke up and was like, what’s up hair, how are you doing the pretty thing?
It’s kind of freaky, as I’m not used to ze hair staying cooperatively within the bounds of aesthetics. It never does anything remotely pretty on its own, and yet today, of all days, it’s decided to be all bouncy and sassy. Well ok. I’ll take it.
In other news, uni is intense, winter is coming and I’m PRETTY sure has come too, but I try to stay in denial – it’s freezing here guys, seriously freezing.
Nails are being painted, because they bring simple bursts of joy to an otherwise busy and blue existence, blogs are being ogled, because the same reason and books are being read – at the moment I’m reading Orlando Furioso, Jerusalem Delivered (which is being a little bitch) and Gone Girl.
Christmas parties are starting, I’m baking a lot for other people, and myself eating shed loads of fresh pineapple for some reason… (which in turn means that my tongue is permanently singed and burning as I’m digesting pineapple and pineapple’s bromelain is digesting me – it’s a meat tenderiser after all, my mouth is no match for its powers.)
As I’m sharing this post with you, there’s a batch of french pastry tartlets in the oven, with Nutella and bananas and nuts and one of palmiers with blue cheese and pesto. We’re having a Christmas Eve Eve with the girls (one of whom is married now which is a huge pitchfork scaring everyone into how quickly time flies in case they forget. Just kidding. I love her. But still scary.)
These nails are all a festive magpie could dream of – silver holo shreds sparkle, Tess shimmers and the silver stamping reflects light in the most mesmerising way.
The only downside is, you can’t really see Tess D’Urbervilles properly – not in the photographs (no matter how many I take…), not in real life. And she’s NOT black – she’s an emerald beauty, with gorgeous particles of light. I’m pretty sure I’d have to wear her alone to appreciate the shade, and maybe I will because she IS beautiful.
My nails have gone nuts again (hihi, get it? Almonds.) and I’m liking it. It was difficult to leave my comfort zone of square at first, but there is just something about almonds nails…
Hoping you enjoy the nailporn; the colours I used:
* a-england Tess D’Urbervilles
* Revlon 220 Milky Way (from the Moon Candy series)
* Barry M Silver Foil
I hope you guys are having a good December – is it Christmas in your hearts already?
I’ll admit mine is not in a Christmassy mood yet, despite the parties and the gift-buying, and despite shops assaulting my eardrums with Last Christmas since mid-November. (HAVE SOME DECENCY STARBUCKS.)
