It's Thursday friends! I have six weeks before I return to work (arggghhh!!!) and this probably means six more weeks of consistent regular blogging. I guess I'll just have to be extra organised so that I don't fall behind with this. If you see me flagging, please feel free to send me an email chastising me.
Yesterday, I received some nail art supplies (that I bought myself) in the post. I got five different types of fimo, a few art brushes, stickers and glitters from here. Shipping was super speedy; I ordered late on New Year's Eve and the goods were posted out on the first working day after the holidays which was 4th January.
Here is my fruity fimo manicure. Initially I'd chosen to paint my nails a green colour, but as I have another green/blue manicure coming up for you, I didn't want to overdo it. Besides, I was looking through a Jamaican cookbook that my grandma had given me and I saw this picture:
I should also mention that when I was growing out my acrylic damage, Hard as Wraps was my go-to product. This is a clear nail polish with a thick consistency that is seriously like putting a layer of gel over your own nails. The thickness acts as extra layers of protection over weak nails. If you are in the UK, you can buy this at Boots for around £6-7.
This will definitely get you noticed at the water cooler in your office...but it's probably more attuned to a 'dress-down Friday'! It's fun so if I go on holiday this year, I might do it again but use nail glue to attach the fimo. I hope this manicure put a smile on your face and made you forget the winter weather for a liddle while.
