day seventy, illamasqua hectic

ahhh short nails! it's nice and odd at the same time! it is much easier to type and take my contacts out though!

i have discovered that the best lighting is in my bathroom. so to cope with the grey winter of London i present...the light in my bathroom! it's surprisingly amazing. much brighter than anywhere else in my flat and gives the most accurate colour representation.

i know some bloggers buy actual lamps to reflect natural sunlight...but that is a little weird and totally out of my budget (still jobless sadly!!). so you get my bathroom. which is actually pretty awesome since the grey grey light outside totally negates the beauty of some colours

today is another stunner from illamasqua. they're pricey (£11/bottle) but 10000000% worth it. perfect application every time. great pigmentation. the polish isn't thick or just applies like a dream. you all know by now that i like weird colours. and this camoflauge green is no exception. i would never think of putting weird olive camo green on my fingers...but it works!

so hi to anyone who is new! i still can't believe people actually read this, it's so exciting!! i have some miniature polish bottles to show soon and they are the CUTEST thing i've ever seen! i have 1 bottle that's smaller than a q-tip. adorable. but onto illamasqua! (i will say that i am annoyed i can't get my cap to go on straight. it totally ruins the awesome rectangular shape)

I love this color!! :) I wish I had better light indoors too. Luckily, it is almost always sunny here.

Re: the square cap: I have one Illamasqua polish, and the square part of the cap pops right off to reveal a smaller round handle underneath. So when I'm done, I just put the square part back on even and it's all rectangular again :).

liz how lucky! i used to live in california so there was year round sunshine...but in london we aren't so lucky! sometimes it seems bright outside (like today) but i still can't manage to capture an accurate colour!

tropicalchrome THANK YOU! i never thought about seeing if the cap popped off! that's awesome news. i'm not usually OCD about things like this...but i like that it makes a little rectangle!
