gotta wanna TRY TO keep it simple.
When you get back home after 72 (perceived) hours at work and you feel like playing with polish, but at the same time you’re so tired that you just wish that said polish could materialize on your nails without any kind of human intervention, you may want to compromise with your own self and go for something easy peasy… lazy.
That’s what happened to me a few days ago. I decided to go for a creme from H&M, because their formula is usually excellent and they’re often opaque in one to two coats. I picked Witching Hour, because it’s dark, green and badass, and I love the name (which by the way reminds me of an overwhelmingly boring novel by Anne Rice: I never made it after page 50, but I still like the title). I estimated 10, 15 minutes of work. Not more than 20, anyway.
That was the plan. But then (surprise surprise) things went horribly wrong and I smudged, dented, messed, dragged, flooded anything I could and it took me 46 (perceived) hours to complete the simplest manicure. So much for my quick-and-easy painting.
On top of that, the photos I took turned out pretty cra… not good, so I only have one to show you. Please be aware that my skin is not unicorn-y, strawberry-milkshake-y, marshmallow-y pink in real life: I’m not an alien – just a bad photographer!
As always when I wear a crème, I got bored with it after ten minutes, so I thought that I could make an additional effort and use a flakie topper over it: first good idea of the evening! The topper, Face of Boe by Colors by Llarowe, applied smoothly and looked great!
Well, I guess that’s enough chatting for one single post. See you next time!
