Good morning blog-readers!
What a gorgeous day it is outside, I just went out to pick some daffodils and it’s warm, actually WARM out there. Spring, I love you. Here’s what I was wearing on my nails last week, one of the 17 polishes I am currently extolling in the side-bar: 17 Lasting Fix Nail Polish in Parma Violet.
Like last week with the matte topcoat, I wanted to experiment with this colour. I added small white polka dots with Essence Tip Painter, and covered it with one coat of Claire’s Matte Top-Coat. Make sure you wait until the polka dots are completely dry, if you’re trying this, otherwise the topcoat will make the colour run.
I think I applied three coats of Parma Violet for the maximum opacity. I’ve taken to omitting a gloss top-coat, because it leaves all polishes with exactly the same finish. I kind of like the uniqueness of every finish. Parma Violet’s finish is a dull gloss, which reminds me of royal icing a little bit.
Spring is here! Two things – the gorgeous daffodils in my kitchen…
… and… my sentient lettuce!
I planted it about ten days and it’s growing like mad, it keeps following the sunshine. One day I had to turn it three times because it kept bending towards the light. I keep imagining I’ll wake up some night to find a giant lettuce towering over me, ready to wreak revenge for all the times I forced it away from the light. AAAAAAAnyway.
Now begins the dilemma as to what colour to paint my nails next…
