Monday Blues: Dreaming of Snow

Hello my lovelies! It's almost dinner time in my neck of the woods so I think this is the latest I've ever posted the Monday Blues post. Better late than never is what I always say! I've been at work today and then I did some Christmas shopping and then here we are. I hear that there won't be any snow this Christmas in my town, which makes me a little sad because it's the only time of the year when I love snow. And that's because I can stay at home and don't have to shovel it around or anything like that. I'm trying to make myself feel better by looking at these nails. They totally remind me of snow and give me that winter feeling.

Ciaté Antique Brooch

Hello my lovelies! Sorry for the lack of posts this week but it's been a crazy one again. I'm finally getting some rest this weekend and catching up on life. I haven't done a proper Christmas themed manicure yet this year so I hope I can get on that tonight. Since I don't have a holiday manicure to show you I decided to post some pictures that have been sitting in my folders for ages. These nails look kinda festive in my opinion. I know that the brand Ciaté is kind of a controversial one but I won't get into that. This polish is truly beautiful and that's the only thing I care about.

Monday Blues: Snowflake Sandwich

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday, my holiday is over and I'm back at work. But I'm not here to talk about depressing stuff, I'm here to brighten your day with a blue manicure. I created these nails for my holiday and wore them the whole week without ever getting bored of them for a bit. They also looked amazing until the end, except for the growth at the base. The inspiration came from a manicure I saw on Facebook, but I must confess that I don't remember who it was by. So I'm really sorry for not giving proper credit. Anyway, without further ado, here's the manicure.

China Glaze Intelligence, Integrity and Courage

Hello my lovelies! My holiday is almost over by now but this is still a scheduled post. It's about a polish I picked up a couple of months ago and didn't get to wear until later. It was my only pick from China Glaze's The Giver collection and I chose it because it seemed like one of those unusual colors that I like so much. The funny thing was that around that time I received a very similar polish from a friend, namely & Other Stories Blunt Grey. They are not identical because that one is more blue and this one is a bit darker and more grey, but they are still very similar. Which only goes to show that this is totally a me color and that my friends know me well.

a-england Tess D'Urbervilles

Hello my lovelies! As you are reading this I am away on a short holiday in Brussels. I didn't want to leave you hanging though, so I scheduled a couple of posts for you. I have a huge backlog of manicures from the last months and I hope I can catch up if I manage to do at least 3 posts a week from now on. This particular set of pictures is from October, so you can imagine how many others I have left. I borrowed this polish from my amazing friend Kinga and tried a little stamping on top as well. Let's take a look!
