Lemonade, Anyone?

It’s May! It’s summer! (shush you, my summer starts in May.) The weather has been so beautiful here recently, it really feels like summer. Perfect for relaxing in the garden with a good book and a glass of fresh lemonade… I disovered pink lemonade in New York last summer and MAN do I miss it… they just don’t make it the same here.

I recently picked up a new shade from 17’s Fast Finish Nail Polish collection – the colour drew my eye, but the name was what hooked me – Pink Lemonade. Also, it’s a jelly! What more could I ask for? This is three coats over one coat of clear.

As you can see, it’s a gorgeously demure shade that’s office-appropriate but also a very cute complement to a more daring outfit. I bought some make-up bits the other day I’d like to show you all too…

Thank you for reading! Also must mention my lovely blogging comrade Cake in the Country, who recently posted a recipe for homemade rhubarb lemonade – yum! Can’t wait to try it out. Here’s the linky – rhubarb lemonade recipe.
