Manicure Monday – Michael Kors Ingénue

Happy Monday everyone!

On second thought, perhaps not so happy… It was hard to get out of bed this morning. What’s worse: When I finally decided to leave my comfy place of rest *boom* that’s exactly when my roommates chose to take a shower… so I hit the snooze button and continued to count Zs, falling into an immediate deep sleep only to wake up in panic a few minutes later because I was going to be late for work.

Conclusion: Set alarm for an earlier time and DO NOT HIT SNOOZE. And maybe try to get more sleep at the weekend…

Snooze buttons are a recipe for disaster… so is going to bed at 6 am (but more on that some other time #foreveryoung 😉 )

Only nail polish could wake me up this busy Monday morning. I only turn to coffee in dire moments where the power of a beauty product has no effect anymore 😉

Michael Kors nail polish saved me this time.

IMG_1850“Ingénue” is a beautiful light pink that is easy to apply and dries quickly. It is definitely an “innocent” colour: not too bright, but noticeable. I am a big fan of soft pinks. This one is whiter than others that I have tested and is a great “cheer-up” colour for wet and rainy Summer days 🙂

This is my first time testing Michael Kors’ polishes. I was not disappointed and hope to test more (maybe also get a bag one day? A girl can dream..)

I also quite like the packaging. It’s elegant and discreet, while still quite glamorous.

Hope this helped you start your day out right… Pair this nail polish with a Matcha Latte served by a cute barista and you’ll be good to go 😉

Manicure Monday!

Monday!

Unlike Garfield, I don’t hate Mondays. Like New Year’s Day, it’s the day one chooses to complete all pushed back tasks; it’s the beginning of a new week, what better time to clean up that room you’ve never wanted to (or not…:))

This week is also the start of my vacation. I’ve got one month left before I’m leaving for college, so now everyday has to be Monday for me.. got a lot of cleaning up to do!

Packing/cleaning issues aside, Monday also brings some fun..

Manicure Monday!

This Monday, I welcome my first OPI manicure to the blog. After mainly using Catrice polishes these past few weeks, I was longing for a longer-lasting polish – I did not want the color to chip off quickly again.

IMG_0003I went for the full shebang: Undercoat, polish and overcoat, all by OPI. This  should factor out a short-lived color splash …or so they say. I sure hope it doesn’t chip off too quickly, but with my nail picking track record, I doubt even the more expensive polishes will last.

IMG_0024The trend these days is to use a different color on your ring finger. Eager to test the new look, but not wanting to be too flamboyant while still working at my internship, I opted for a color in the same shade, unlike a totally opposite one like the trend normally expects.

Color number one was Come to Poppy; a beautiful shade of glistening pink, reminding me of pink candy.

IMG_0011I painted my left hand in this color, before switching to polish number 2, for the ring finger and right hand.

IMG_0005MeepMeepMeep is a darker pink and very glittery. Despite being a similar shade, it still provided a popping contrast to the shinier, brighter light pink.

Finish with a top coat and flaunt those trendy nails! 🙂
