If you are as yes unaware, I am trying (a little bit) to be a Korean doll and have my nails done 24/7. The thing is, fussing with nails and nail polish really isn’t my thing, so I will cut corners at any opportunity. Hence, my take on the manicure: the wannicure! If you, like me, don’t care too much about the ins and outs of nails but just want them to look pretty, then I’m your gal 😉
Yesterday after our field trip, I had a break before my class which I decided to luxuriously use to do my nails (among a few other, less important things). The colour I decided to use was one that my lovely friend Sehar gave as part of my birthday present last year, but which I had never gotten around to using. It’s Nature Republic’s Colour Waltz nail polish in Pastel Blue (BL508). It’s actually a sort of a lavender, grey-blue as opposed to a really soft baby blue. I wasn’t sure how it would look on me, but hey you only live once and you have to dream big, right?!
Ta-da! As you can see, the colour came out really nice and it’s actually quite bright and eye-catching. I really, really like this colour! I wasn’t sure if it would match with my skin because I’m very light, but it really complements it. I think it could actually work with a lot of skin tones, and it also matches this wintry blue weather (although I just thought of that now and besides, differentiating nail polishes based on seasons is quite redundant imho!).
In case you didn’t know from yesterday’s post, I am a little bit obsessed with Nature Republic and they can (almost) do no wrong in my eyes – except they need to stop testing on animals, which Korea is bringing in within the next year or so. Their nail polishes are pretty long-lasting and come in a range of colours – and they are only 1,000 won each. Amajing!
I highly recommend this colour, or at least have a look at the many colours Nature Republic has to offer. Most of all, I would like to take this opportunity to toot my own horn and highlight the fact that I have done my nails TWICE within the past week! That definitely has to be some sort of record for me! The funny thing is, as trivial as nails are, having them done does make me feel somewhat more in control of my life. It’s a mental thing, but it’s always the little things to do with grooming which make quite noticeable differences. It doesn’t have to be perfect (and it sure ain’t), but just spending that extra bit of time on myself feels indulgent (in a good way) and the pop of colour makes me happy 🙂
Well, that’s it for today’s post! I hope you all have a great weekend and see you tomorrow ^^
