Inspired by the weather

Hi there,

The weather has been pretty weird here for the past few days. The sun will shine for a few hours then rain will be pouring down like crazy, then the sun comes back. Weird and wardrobe confusing. I thought this mani represented it pretty well and was really happy when I came up with the idea to do it and post it on my blog, but then it dawned on me that it could just as well be in an Ikea catalogue...
What do you think?

I used Chanel's Blue Boy (Jeans de Chanel collection) and Jaune Trendy by Bourjois ( a company owned by Chanel). No topcoat.

Blue Boy's color is great but I don't really like the jelly finish (too sheer) that required 3 coats. There was some pretty massive tipwear as well...unusual for Chanel, even when you don't use a topcoat.

This is the first Bourjois polish I try and am pretty impressed. Self-leveling, shiny, quick-drying and no tip wear.




Thanks for reading :)

  3. Ow is the weather also so weird in your country? It's driving me nuts also, i started wondering what happend to the Spring. It feels more a bit like Autum. But hey your nails are perfect for a Ikea ad. You should set it to them :-)

    1. Haha! I should! I'll call this the Ingëflögkerbrüèn mani. They always have such complicated names :)
