Monday Blues: Tristam and a feather

Hello lovelies! Today is a really important Monday for me. I have my diploma exam this week (starting tomorrow) so I'm very nervous and don't know if this post will make any sense. I'll be done by Thursday, so expect the next post at the end of the week. This post is a little random, starting with the title. These nails started just as a pretty manicure to cheer me up after I chopped off the long nails I had before. I had to use one of my favorite polishes ever, so I went with A-england Tristam.

I've showed this one before on the blog (here), so I figured that I won't post about it, but then I got some better pictures and thought it wouldn't hurt. The original post was over one year ago anyway. I also took a flash photo with my phone to show the subtle holo shimmer better. I think it's the first time I post a flash photo on my blog, so here you go.

You can see how short my nails were. I plan on keeping them this length from now on and polishes like Tristam look great on nubs. I still decided to add a little something extra, so I stamped the huge peacock feather from Nailz Craze plate NC01 using Konad White. This feather is so huge that it actually goes across all my 4 fingers. Take a look! 

I personally love the subtlety of this look. I know the stamping isn't perfect, but it still looks good. I hope you've enjoyed it as much as I did! And if you wanna see more blues, check out the links below! 

Have a great week!
