College like a Pro

All I could think about this week, was that I have no manicure and no pedicure. I drifted off while doing homework, my mind focusing on colors and textures, I couldn’t concentrate during Contemporary class, looking down at my bare, uncolorful toes, color chipping off, vanishing more with each movement..

I had to put an end to this misery; I needed a manicure, and finally gave myself one, with the pretext, however, that I simultaneously put on a face mask…

Which is what I did..



A black, peel-off mask, that is.. much to my roommate’s joy.. 😉 The mask was an impulse-buy at Sephora last week because I had forgotten my Kiehl’s mask at home and had always wanted to try peel off masks. Putting on the mask was easy-ish; it was sort of a black, goopy mess, that stuck quickly, so I had to work fast. The instructions said to wait 20 minutes and then peel it off, so I sat at my desk, turned on America’s Next Top Model and decided to paint my nails.



I went back to my new-found fav, OPI liquid sand in shade Pussy Galore. Love…It…! I used this on only my left hand.



When I turned to my right nails, I was struck by nostalgia and a waft of homesickness. I thus chose a Swiss-named polish to, naturally, help cure it. Planning ahead while packing for college, I knew I would need some uplifting things to keep me going the first few weeks so I added these two colours to my “must take” list:


I had forgotten about “From A to Z-Urich”, so I chose Glitzerland, which is awesome in name and color 🙂


Plus it went really well with the pink sand.

Once my nails were more or less dry, it was time to peel off the mask. Again, much to my roommate’s (and other friend’s amusement), I confusedly tried to pry the – now dry –  goopy mess off of my face..easier said than done, I’ll tell you that! Whatever I didn’t manage to peel off was thankfully washable with water, which was a major relief as my hands had gone soot black! The result of the mask was pleasing, but barely noticeable..

As soon as ANTM was over I returned to finishing my homework; the model student in me not wanting to spend the whole evening on beauty 😉

I tried to get to bed at a reasonable time though, as I now have dance practice every morning at 9. This can be as serious as ballet or as fun as an interpretative dance on the lawn..


Oh and this was in the ballet studio 🙂



I go to an awesome school 😀

And with all things cute, funny and “out there” (remember: own the awkward), I got this as my fortune with Thai take-out:


Very fitting 🙂

I ate my curry and brown rice after a strenuous Capoeira class, where I was taught interesting dance/capoeira/martial arts techniques that made me feel a bit awkward at first but are actually really fun! Also fitting!

Speaking of food, my suite-mate had superman ice cream the other day!


And I finally got my peanut butter FroYo, which I enjoyed in my dance clothes 🙂

That’s all for today! I’m going into the City tomorrow so I’ve got to do my homework now..

With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo
