Manicure Monday – It’s my Year & Teenage Dream

Happy Monday dearest beauties!

I’m keeping it short and simple today, as I still need to finish an assignment! But I am thrilled to finally be sharing a manicure with you guys! But first, let me show you the nail polishes I commented on for Madame Magazine

Some of those were written by MOI 🙂 I am especially in love with the Louboutin polish.. sigh

So on with my manicure:

Do you remember slightly less than a year ago I mentioned getting my nails done with friends. I also mentioned I would be purchasing that very polish by OPI immediately that evening. Well folks, let me present to you a proud acquirement to my polish-possession: It’s my Year, by OPI.

I also varnished my second finger on the left with “Teenage Dream”, which is part of the Katy Perry collection, also by OPI, and reversed the manicure for my right hand. I guess my strain of thought during the process of doing my nails was: It took me 4 weeks to finally do this, might as well go to town and use 2 colours.

I am in awe of both colours. They are both so sparkly. Sparkly is good, sparkly makes me happy…

Gold, purple, pink and silver… match made in heaven

Without a top coat, the colour has held relatively well over the course of the week, especially “It’s my year” (the purple-hued one)

definitely a favourite – definitely a purchase I will never regret and one that is filled with memories of walks through the leaves to the beauty parlour and long talks at Slave to the Grind with a steaming mug full of pumpkin spiced coffee…. Bronxville really is a cute place to live, and I need to make sure to visit my friends at SLC sometime soon…

Memories… memories..

Anyhoo back to work! Wishing you all a beautiful Monday!

With attitude and my favourite nail polish, Anoushé xoxox

This is sort of going to be a Manicure Monday/what I did on a Friday/favourite food post
1469812_10151834753795983_106676067_nWe spent an afternoon in Bronxville last week to do our nails and get a kick of caffeine in our system. I tried a Peppermint Mocha for the first time and also had a sip of a Salted Caramel Macchiato. I was definitely hyper after my little coffee break.

Before we enjoyed coffee, the three of us got our nails done.

IMG_0686We all went for OPI. 🙂

IMG_0687I chose a shade from the Miss Universe collection called It’s my Year. This name doesn’t just apply to winning the competition, but also to my new look on life. A double meaning, and a beautiful polish to match? I’d call that a win/win.

I am still very much in love with this colour. Depending on where the light hits it, it sparkles with a golden shimmer. It’s a beautiful purple for the holiday season 🙂

Later that night I enjoyed some sushi:

IMG_0615Sweet potato and avocado sushi to be exact!

IMG_0616The restaurant – Haiku – is one of the best for sushi. The content to rice ratio is larger than at most places, so you get more of the good stuff for a reasonable price! Sushi in the States is so much cheaper than in Switzerland, so of course I frequent this restaurant on a regular basis.

IMG_0709 IMG_0713I’ve also tried their vegetables. I’m a huge fan!
