'Minnie on Hand' by Miss K

Good morning!

My dear friend Miss K took a break from her school work and recruitment to send me a picture of her latest manicure. She named it Minnie on Hand, because the design reminded her of Minnie Mouse!

She used Essie Innocent to make the tips!
The polka dots are super cute! Next manicure should be name after Mickey! ;)

Have fun today!

Butter London Old Blighty

Hi Readers!

I'm sorry for the lack of updates! I definitely did not expect to be this busy, this soon. Pop quizzes and assignments worth 20% on the second week of school? Not cool, teachers, not cool.

I finally got around to using Butter London Old Blighty!

Old Blighty is a brown-red color that easily reminds me of bricks. It is such a nice color for fall! I will definitely be pulling this one out of the box more than once this season. Application was fairly nice. I had great coverage with only two coats, but I added a third to achieve bottle color. I have to say, I especially love the bottle!

Have a great week everybody!
I'll do my best to update more than once ;)

Color Club Age of Aquarius

Hi guys!!

Hope you all had a good week!

I am going to make a quick update and not write much, since I have to live for school...

I'm currently wearing Color Club Age of Aquarius on my nails. It's such a cute color! Everytime I look at my nails, I'm reminded of turquoise beaches.... Oh how I miss summer already!

Application was much better then Ms Socialite, partly because I did not have a weird brush. 3 coats.

Have a great day!

Color Club Ms Socialite

Good Morning!

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend!

I've been a reading-machine lately: a few months ago, I made a list of books that I want/need to read and I've been slowly working on scratching items off of the list. 6 down, 178 more to go!!
I am currently reading Jack Kerouac's The Dharma Bums and will be tackling Jane Austen's Emma next. Hopefully, I'll be able to keep this up with all the school reading I have to do... (fingers crossed!)

Anyways, we have another rainy day here in Montreal. It seems like it's going to be a wet week...

I am wearing Color Club Ms Socialite today, a berry purple creme. The formula was 'ok', but I had a wonky brush, which made application a bit tricky. This was 2 coats.

Alright, gotta go back to my school readings!
Much love

H&M Blue my Mind


Hope you're all enjoying your labor day weekend! It's schoolwork, schoolwork, and more schoolwork for me! I guess that's what school is, huh? I kind of missed it towards the end of my summer vacations...

It rained a little bit yesterday, the sky was all gray and somber. I decided to pull Blue my Mind out, since it reminds me of nice weather. The color definitely added a little bit of 'punch' to the day.

Now, I'll be honest. The color is a magnificent blue creme. However, I am a little bit hesitant to use this polish again because of the formula. I don't know if most H&M polishes are like this, but Blue my Mind's formula was absolutely horrible (my bottle, at least). It was super thick and goopy and was hard to apply. I am hoping that a bit of thinner will resolve the issue, because I love the color!! Pictured is three coats, no top coat.

I'm going to go try and add thinner to Blue my Mind, so I'll keep you guys updated on the situation ;)

Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance

It's back  to school today! :)  I'm really excited to see my friends and start my new program!

I'm wearing Bad Romance today!

Bad Romance is basically the same as the gorgeous Ruby Red Slippers. only with purple glitter. It is as beautiful and I love it just as much - I'm sure I'll be saying the same thing for Across the Universe. I had no problem with application, two coats were enough for me. It dried fairly fast too. The only thing I'm dreading: removal.

Alright I can't write much more, I have to go to school!!! 
Have a great day!
