How has your week started? ♥
I'm having a great start, we got some exciting news I can share with you later this week. ;) I'm currently having the last vacation week from the school, and still waiting to have the Summer vacation from work - once the school has started, crazy, isn't it?
Anyways, I've been spending time away from the laptop lately, so I'm sorry for the lack of posting/answering comments/visiting your blogs. I'm sure it'll change once the school starts and I'm forced to write papers on the computer. Now, have you already seen my apartment post? If not, you should check it out now. It's nothing miraculous, but it's our home. So check it out, and leave a comment. ;)
Now, speaking of apartments, there was a Housing Fair near us for a month, and of course, as we love to dream about our future together, we had to go check the whole thing out. I don't have pictures from the fair itself, but if you're into it, you can go and read posts about it by other Finnish bloggers, like Noora (see her post here). What I have for you, is the outfit I wore that day.
Outfit of the day
Wedges: relative's old
Bow necklace: Seppälä
Rose ring: Accessorize
I'm slowly trying to introduce myself to bit more chic style, item by item, and this outfit is one example of how I do it. Pastels, neutrals, clean cuts, buns.... Those are elements I would love to get more into my daily looks. Not necessarily everything at once, but maybe one or two at the time. Although here I pretty much grasped all of them. I hadn't worn those wedges in years, and actually broke my skin a bit wearing them. But that happens to the best of us, right? :D The playsuit here is something my mom and dad bought me, from a shop I never even dare to go into because of the prices. (They have the most lovely items, but just bit out of my price range.) All in all, I loved this outfit, and can't wait to rock it again - with some edgy details - once school starts again.
Now, the question is: How do you like this look?
I don't know how much it shows in the pictures, but I didn't have any nail polish (can you believe it?) to match the outfit. That's simply because I didn't have the time to do my nails before going to the fair. Later in that evening though, after work, I made this kinda nice manicure.
#8 Metallic nails
I guess there's many ways - and colors - for creating cool metallic nails. I was first going for just "plain" hologram nails, but then I just had to play around with tape and nail art pen. And the abstract result is as follows:
I used hologram polish from Make Up Store as a base, and a silver polish from IsaDora for the shapes. As I felt the shapes didn't show clearly enough, I lined them with a black nail art pen.
Do you like this manicure? What kind of metallic manicures you usually do?
Now, I need to catch some sleep just to get on with my normal school rhythm. I try to answer all the comments within the next 24 hours, I hate to have them unanswered like they've been past days. :P
I hope you'll all have a fabulous week! ♥
Blog ya later,
