Last week I took part in a challenge and it reminded me of my glorious days :)) I was most productive when I was participating at no more than 3 challenges at a time. I was quite the busy bee and I loved it! But having to come up with some many designs and having to stick to a timeline it took a tool on me eventually. By the time the university started I felt like I needed a break and so I quietly stepped out of the challenges world. And almost two years later here I am ^_^

You know that feeling when you have a ton of stuff to do but you want to do something else entirely (like nail art)? Yeah the all mighty, mind blowing procrastionatioooon! Ugh... Even though there are some tricks as to how to avoid it...it's such a guilty pleasure. And It's quite sad how your own brain is sabotaging you :)) To all of you out there fighting this...hang in there and just get sh*t done. It will get easier once you get started, that fear and panic you feel will go away once you are actually doing something. The trick is to start!

Today I go on with my little pet project and I'm showing you another Rimmel London nail polish (Too Cool To Tango). A gorgeous pastel blue that is just perfect for spring. I'm a little disappointed that the pictures aren't 100% color accurate, the shade isn't that much on the turquoise side, is just a straight up pale blue. Sorry for that :)

How's your week going? I'm gonna brag now and say that I have a one week vacation and plan to just relax and laze around as much as possible. Don't hate the player hate the game :))
Today's manicure is a disruption from my plan to swatch all my Rimmel polishes. What can I say, I was in the mood for some texture. These were my Easter nails, I did them last minute so I needed a nail polish that would dry quickly and would have minimal visibility of any smudges that could've happen.

Hello April! Hope you'll be great! As for temperatures, I hope it'll get better! We've had such a moody weather here, in Cluj lately...it snowed then it was sunny then it snowed again and so on and all in a matter of hours. I'm confused, where is spring? :)) Nonetheless, I'm determined to do "springish" manicures from now on, maybe just maybe the warm sunny days will be here sooner, rather than later.

Today's post is really different from what is usually here on this blog. But since my nails have been naked for a few days and I haven't anything else planned out, I thought it would be a good idea to widen the horizons. I came across this list of ideas on how to blow off some steam, because let's face it...we all need that from time to time! It is really important for our general well being. I don't know who compiled this list, it was the topic of one of my english classes and I figured I should share them with you all ^^
So here we go:

Please ignore my striping skills! They're horrible! I need to practice more, 'cause I'm rusty. Moving on, this design is not thaaat hard to achieve, you start by doing a negative space (using french strips) and then you proceed by doing white lines, or dots or whatever you like.
How are you today! Let's bring some summer on our nails, shall we? I've got the perfect nail polish for that, it's called Limealicious (squishy! I know ^^) and it's from Rimmel London, the 60 Seconds Collection. I was telling you in my previous post that I involuntarily started using only Rimmel London nail polishes in my previous manicures. So I've decided to swatch every one I've got from this brand, and I've got about a dozen of them. I hope you won't get bored! It's gonna be fun!
