Monday Blues: Blue Stars

Hello my lovelies! I can't believe it's the last Monday of August, which means summer is coming to an end. It's been a great one though and I'm trying to stay positive about the arrival of fall. As I'm typing this it's still very hot where I live and I'm leaving for a trip to the seaside tomorrow, so fall can wait a little longer. But first let me show you the manicure I wore on my previous trip, a very summery one indeed.

Picture Polish Jasmine

Hello my lovelies! I'm back from my trip but not for long, because I'm gonna be away again next week. In the meantime I have a couple of manicures to show you. One of them is the next Monday Blues and the other one is a beautiful Picture Polish that was kindly lent to me by a friend. I've known Traci from The TraceFace Philes for a long time and I enjoy her Instagram profile because it always has dog pictures. She created this polish to remember Jasmine, her sweet Rhodesian Ridgeback who passed away a few years ago. I think she totally did her justice because this polish is gorgeous!

Monday Blues: Summer Sun

Hello my lovelies! As I've mentioned in last week's post, I'm currently enjoying the beautiful city that is Amsterdam. I couldn't skip this week's Monday Blues though, as I haven't done it in over 3 years since I started. I'm also very excited to show you this manicure because I absolutely love it. It reminds me of summer and even though it's the end of August, I hope you are still enjoying the sun wherever you are.

a-england Crown of Thistles

Hello my lovelies! I am currently on vacation but I scheduled this post so you don't get too bored while I'm gone. The nail polish I'm showing you today comes from a brand that is very close to my heart. a-england makes the most beautiful polishes and they all have a story behind them. I have quite a few of them in my collection, which says a lot because they are not very easy to get hold of where I live. I do manage to get my hands on one of them every once in a while though and I knew Crown of Thistles had to be mine from the first time I saw it. So here it is!

Monday Blues: Delft Pottery

Hello my lovelies! After a few weeks of unbearably high temperatures it's finally raining today. I'm happy that we get to cool off a bit but I'm not happy because it feels like fall is coming. Hopefully it's not the case because there's still plenty of summer to enjoy. I'm leaving town on Thursday and I can't wait. I will be visiting Amsterdam so that's what inspired me to create today's nails. I tried to paint the pattern of Delft pottery and here's the result.

Elephant Walk

Hello my lovelies! How is your summer so far? I feel like the 15th of August is the most summery day of all. A lot of people are on vacation and even those that aren't can enjoy themselves because it's Saturday. To celebrate all that I have a very summery manicure for you. I haven't worn too many neons this summer because I can't wear them to work. But now that I'm on vacation myself, I have indulged in some crazy manicures and pedicures. Here's the first one!

Monday Blues: Blue Fame

Hello my lovelies! Can you believe it's Monday again? I sure can't! Especially because I'm on vacation and the days are just flying by. The only thing different about today is the fact that I have to write this post for you. The title is not that original and I apologize for the lack of inspiration. I am in love with these nails though and hopefully you will like them too. Here we go!

Picture Polish Imperial

Hello my lovelies! Sorry I haven't kept my promise of posting more this week. My nails are still in a less than perfect shape and I haven't been doing them that often. They are improving and starting to grow though, so I'm feeling optimist about them. Today's post is about a polish that has been in my collection for a few months. I didn't like the pictures from when I first wore it so I didn't post them back then. After a few weeks I wore it again and I wasn't that happy with those pictures either. That's when I realized that this polish is too amazing to be photographed and decided to just post the photos I have so hopefully you can get an idea of its awesomeness. So here we go!

Monday Blues: China Glaze Boho Blues

Hello my lovelies! It's the first Monday in August and I'm on vacation! I slept in and spent part of my morning in bed, but then I rushed to the computer to write this post for you. I really want to blog more this month because I will finally have the time to do nails. Unfortunately my nails are not in the best shape. I reduced them to complete nubs two weeks ago and they didn't grow as much as I expected. Due to the fact that I had nothing prepared in advance for today, you will have to accept them as short as they are. Hope you don't mind!
