I woke up and it was raining. Sure, rain is fine, we need rain. But it was cold, I was cold, the weather was all autumn and the only thing keeping me from feeling under the weather was my manicure. I did it the night before, my first skittles (I wanted to try a new technique but I couldn't decide which colour).
I prefer when my nails are all the same, skittlette manis bother me a bit (but I can live with them), and that's the reason I haven't done skittles yet, they look too funny in person.
I did this by stroking striping brush horizontally over my nail, if that's understandable. The base is Gabriella Salvete 148, colours are acrylics and on top is one coat of NYC Turbo Dry Top Coat (!!). Oh yes, different top coat, no more Essence BTGN. This is how it happened: I went to local drug store where they sell Essence products and I found out, that my favourite BTGN was sold out, because it was half the usual price! So not just that I missed a bargain, but I couldn't buy the top coat. It was undoubtedly universe speaking, saying that I should try different top coat, most probably the one I had been looking at past few months because of good reviews. I did it, here it is.
By the way, I added tumblr and bloglovin link to the side bar, so you can follow me easily there. I didn't feel nerdy enough to do more HTML to add picture buttons and stuff, later, I guess.
You can see my right hand now, it is practically the same as the left.
Back to where I started. I woke up, looked at my nails and asked summer to stay little longer. Then I had to get up the bed and make some proper photos for the blog. With tea. Hot tea is my rescue in cold mornings.
Sadly you can't see the steam going up the mug. Just imagine, okay? Especially if your mornings are getting colder every day as mine are.
To not be all pessimistic, I'm actually looking forward wearing more subtle colours after all the bright spring-summer manicures I did, aren't you?
Take care!(so you don't catch a cold, I know I will eventually)
