Military chic


Hello guys! I hope you all had a great weekend. This look was made a couple of days ago. I was wearing China Glaze Westside Warrior from the Metro collection. What a beautiful shade of green! The application was wonderful too. I loved it and couldn't stop looking at my nails, it's unlike any other green I own. But a few days later I got tipwear on several fingers, I was bummed because I didn't want to take Westside Warrior off... So what do you do when you want to keep a polish on your nails, but it's suffering from tipwear; you go for a funky French ;) I was just playing around with my tape strips when I finally got to this design, and I must say I like it a lot! Though the whole look has a military feel, the tips reminded me of pyramids. Pyramid tips ^^ The gold shimmer I used for them was H&M Golden Treasure. It's an antique shade of gold, very pretty and very nice for tape manis. The formula is smooth and it doesn't dry too quick :) And a little by the way, these pictures were made under my boyfriend's granny's lamp, which belongs to our appartment now. Apparently it's great in mimicing sunlight! And that's awesome, because it means I can keep taking my pictures, even in the winter! Regardless of the weather and whenever I have time to, hooray! Have a great night everyone and I'll see you soon :)

  10. Cool. I keep seeing more WSW this week. I had decided it was not the green for me and I had a ton of choices this fall most certainly. But this looks really good with the Victory V's you have done. You may see pyramids - today I see V for our victory to join together, continuing to work through another 9-11.

  11. Wat een gaaf design weer! De kleuren staan ook erg mooi samen. Jouw design zou ook erg gaaf staan op een marine blauwe kleur nagellak denk ik.
