Manicure Monday

I don’t care if Monday’s BLUE! Cause it is! A beautiful light, Tiffany’s box blue to be exact. Now don’t go rolling your eyes because I’m using the same lyric quote I used a few days ago. The song is awesome. It fits. Get over it (..and read on about this amazing polish!)

Essie - Where's my Chauffeur

Essie – Where’s my Chauffeur

I was in a bit of a pickle because I had forgotten to do my nails after most of it had chipped off (been bitten off..you say potato I say pot-AH-to), and had to hurry to leave for Montreux last Saturday (yes this nail polish is a week old and it still shines bright (like a diamond…).

So I did what anyone would do, I packed the polish to take with me and decided to give myself a manicure in the car (perfectly sane way of handling this conundrum, dontcha think?) I’ve done my nails in moving vehicles before (and in class rooms, much to the joy of my Physics teacher) but that was then and this is now – suddenly I’d lost the touch for nice finger nail painting at high velocity travelling.

It’s sadly not like riding a bike and when you don’t use this skill for very long, you apparently lose it. So instead of arriving in Montreux with beautifully manicured nails, I showed up with one painted hand that could pass as ok as long as you didn’t look at it too closely, and the other with a squiggly line on the thumb and that’s it (no, I will not show you as it is more embarrassing than my chewed up skin around the nails..!) But I will show you a picture of the amazing nail polish I used from Essie.

And guess what. It has an awesome name too (duuuh!). It’s called where’s my chauffeur?! Kind of ironic that I chose exactly this polish to use while my dad was driving us to Montreux…hmmmmmm 😀 (I did not realise this at the time)

If I were as well-organized as I wish I one day may be, I would’ve completed the nail painting by now. But alas, I have no sense of getting things done at the moment. I blame it on the too much time I spend watching nonsense shows online, going to dance class and just finding other things to do instead. Discipline, why must you leave me!

So instead of ever having two beautifully manicured nails in blue, I left one hand completely naked and decided to redo my manicure, using a completely new colour later on in the week (which you get to see next Monday).

With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
