Manicure Monday – Haute in the Heat

Summer has arrived!


Blue skies, sunshine, ice cream and down-time at the lake pre-occupy my weekends now that the temperatures are constantly above 23 degrees (Celsius). Last week, in Munich, I could’ve used a bit of wind though… it was HAWT! Like New York hot – like non-stop humidity and electric fans whirring out of control in the lack of AC buildings hot… and when it gets too warm and humid I don’t particularly feel to hot myself.

Enter the nail polish that made my day a little bit “cooler”

IMG_1240Essie – The amount I blog about you should hopefully lead me to the top of your marketing team (future job maybe?) 😉

Jokes aside, Essie does deserve a gold medal when it comes to their (new) nail polish names. I always preferred OPI or Catrice over Essie, as I found the names a tad bit uncreative a few months back… but now they have stepped up to the play and are sending out polish after polish, with each summery colour (actually mainly the names) attracting my attention more and more.


Haute Couture for my nails – yup, I am in love again…


Monogamy and nail polish just don’t go together in my books… I am constantly practicing the “wait until you get bored and toss it” mentality with my favorite colours… 😉


Raspberry Red, looking Haute in the Heat


Even Paris Hilton would say: “That’s hot” (that quote is SOOO OLD now)


This colour matches most outfits and shines bright in the sun 🙂 Maybe I’ll not cheat on this colour too often this Summer!

Have a great Monday 🙂

Manicure Monday: Disco Biscuit

IMG_1192Happy Monday everyone!

IMG_1195How was your weekend? Mine was full of pilates, Persian food and pancakes (ha! unintended alliteration for the win 🙂 )

IMG_1193Let me introduce to you, a Butter London Nail Polish that I received for my 20th birthday!

IMG_1203It’s a beautiful coral-ish red with sparkles. Loads and loads of sparkles.

IMG_1210This nail polish required two coats, otherwise it looked a bit too skimpy.

IMG_1207Let me just mention how amazing my friend is for a) reading my blog, b) remembering that I ADORE cute nail polish names and c) finds me a nail polish called Disco Biscuit for my birthday, a night where I, 1) of course was going to go out to a club, and 2) hopefully would get to eat loads of biscuits and other goodies. 🙂 perfection!

IMG_1203Did you guys know that in India they don’t say cookie, but they say biscuit? Even to chocolate chip cookies? I made this fun little discovery during my first month at SLC. It was one of the first times I had eaten a soft-baked chocolate chip cookies at the cafeteria, after seeing a group of soccer guys literally sneak behind the counter to the oven and stuff a bunch of cookies in their pockets! Naturally I thought I had to try them… and since they were so good I also wanted to start hoarding them! I mention this to my friends (many of which are from India), and my one friend gets the spectacular idea to also sneak behind the counter and grab AN ENTIRE TRAY OF “BISCUITS”! He rushes over to me, expecting me to grab all the cookies and run, but I’m stuck, frozen in awe, laughing hysterically at what he had just done! Then he started shouting: “grab the biscuits Anoushé, hurry hurry!” The way he said “biscuit” sent me into another round of hysterics.. that was the night we all became friends, and I swore I would convert to saying biscuit over cookie. (I also say Shoyu instead of soy sauce now, but that’s another, albeit similar, story..:) ).

IMG_1206This nail polish will now forever remind me of that one, biscuit-full night 🙂
