I'm in a fierce slump lately. Didn't even do my workout :( I was planning on going to town to buy more nail polish but because I didn't really make an effort with my fitness thingy I cancelled it :( Although nail mail really cheered me up :D More on that soon ;) Today I thought I would show you the manicure I have on right now.
The minute I put Illamasqua Monogamous on my nails I fell head of heals for it. The is more of a flesh toned polish than a nude. Several times I have reached for something and though my fingers were after getting longer like E.T's! I swear to god I had a mini heart attack each time.
If you follow me on twitter ( @Cuti-CLUE-les ) you'll know that I put this on after some nail art so please excuse the blue tinges around my nails. I drowned by fingers with acetone nail polish remover and still it won't budge! That nail art was inspired by one of you too so keep an eye out for that on Friday! I'm so excited about it!!!
I love Monogamous! Like seriously love it! The finish is just stunning. So unique and just plain beautiful. My close up here really does not do this polish any justice. It's a complete bitch to capture accurately I'm afraid but colour wise these are grand!
Without a shadow of a doubt, one of my favourite polishes ever. I'm so grateful to Claire at GiveMePolish for giving this to me as I would never had experienced it overwise.
One problem and it's a biggie. My right hand. It was grand at first, not as smooth as my left but it was grand. Then I got cocky and threw on a topciat thinking it'll enhance the polish even more. Awful idea! A topcoat completely ruins the look of this polish. It also highlights each and every flaw. Even the teeny tiny ones, and magnifies them! So when I got my nail mail I painted over it :D Now I have ET fingers on my left and a rainbow on my right.
Oh and did you see their so-called "great deal"? "Free international shipping!" and then when you open the email "on orders over £75". Seriously for an order like that I would expect free shipping!!
On a happier note, Does anyone watch Diners, drive ins and dives? I am in love with Guy Fieri. There was an episode on there and he was at an Irish pub, His pronunciation of the place was woeful but it was hilarious!
And I just found him on twitter. Commencing mission "make him my husband".
