Last night I spent way too long trying to decide what colour I wanted to paint my nails. And it appears as a fail-safe move I always fall back to pinks- probably why I have over 20 pinks in my collection! So when I finally decided today, it was clear this fitted my adoration of pink, and the name says it all.
I have a horrible attention span. To go along with my love of shiny objects, I get distracted so easily. But when I find something that piques my interest, I’m good for a few long hours. And here lies the result. After scrolling through the lovely blog Chasing Elixir I came across a post called ‘The ABC of me’ that she posted quite a while ago. Like many others I love random facts and even more about other people! You are sure to find a perfect topic of conversation in a lesser known fact about someone So in the spirit of getting to know me a little more; here I go!
Welcome everyone to 2012, I hope you all had fantastic holidays!
Now, I’m a sucker for nail polish. Pink nail polish. Oh, and glitter. My only issue is that nail polish NEVER lasts on me. Almost every nail polish I have used (bar a select few) peel within 24-48 hours. Base coats, top coats and everything in between don’t seem to make it last. And even weirder, it peels off in sheets, sometimes the entire nail’s paint! And between working as a masseur and in a hardware store, my hands take a fair beating, so this makes everything worse. I could paint my nails in the morning and one afternoon shift will have me in chips-ville.
In walks in the nail polish strip phenomenon. Now considering my luck with nail polish peeling anyway, I scoffed at these things having any chance of lasting on my nails. But new years eve rolled around and I was wandering through Priceline for some nail inspiration. And I noticed the Sally Hansen Nail Strips display fully stocked…this almost never happens, and to my joy, full of pink, sparkly goodness sat the pack of ‘Bling it on.’ And I thought to myself, well it is new years, so I only really need it for the night, just give it a go.
And boy oh boy I am so glad that I did! Read More »
