day one hundred and seventy nine, lippmann collection secret love
this is a gorgeous goody from lippmann collection, secret love is a really sweet peach colour with a strong pearl finish. i wore it to an interview and i felt it worked really well for the occasion, mild yet pretty...making your hands interesting but not distracting (which works if you are like me and gesticulate constantly!). this is also now my LUCKY POLISH because i got the job!!!!!! sooo nice to finally be chosen for a job after so much rejection and waiting!
i really, really like this colour, it's just pretty. it's simple and i appreciate that.
unfortunately my index fingernail on my left hand had been doing a funky bending thing (like the corner of the nail was bending into itself) and of course...it finally bent all the way and broke (but it was expected...i couldn't get it to 'unbend' and so it just kept going) so bye bye gorgeous nail talons (probably my longest ever...it was getting difficult to deal with my contacts everyday though!) and hello stubby nails! it is nice to feel my fingertips again (or be able to use them easily when typing) but my nail beds are very short so i feel like my hands look child-like and stubby.
anyway, onto this gorgeous-ness! (and no more lippmann for awhile...i feel like i've overloaded you all!)
