Yes, I have hit another slump at blogging. Around the same time last year, I actually stopped blogging for a month or two because I just couldn’t be bothered with it! You know when you have no energy for anything but lying down and staring into nothing? Well, that’s me lately! And before you might ask, no I’m not brokenhearted. It must be the heat the getting to me and making me oh so lazy! 🙂
Anyway, unlike last year though, I’m feeling a bit guilty about neglecting my blog. After all, I’ve invested so much time and effort on it previously and I have an obligation of course to those of you who support it. 🙂 Hence, I decided to take it slow and easy with a simple “nails of the day” post.
Not rocket Science, thank God! Simple is a good start to rev up my very much addled brain. Again, I blame the heat!
Last January, I think, I bought loads of nail polishes because they were cheap and easy to hoard. I’ve become such a shopaholic that I feel compelled to get something when I go into a shop. Nail polishes are my saving grace because they cheer me up yet they’re not so hard on my budget. I very much like Bobbie Nails in particular.
Years ago, I wasn’t really into glitz and glitter for my nails. Just recently though, I turned into a magpie and as such, am fascinated with anything that shines! That’s why I got solar burst from Bobbie. It was gold and had colorful pieces of glitter in it. It immediately grabbed my attention.
Well, one thing I realized was this particular nail polish didn’t look particularly pretty up close. As you can see, it looks like a messy glitter job upon close inspection. Kinda reminds me of how I haphazardly applied glitter glue on my school projects when I was a kid. Well, to be honest, it’s really difficult trying to spread the glitter on evenly. Eventually you;ll end up with some parts having more glitter than others, which is exactly what happened in my case.
It doesn’t look so bad from afar though, what do you think? Maybe I’m deluding myself. You can always let me know by commenting. (Hint, hint) Seriously though, I don’t think the photos are doing this nail polish any justice. It looks much prettier in real life as it shines and shimmers while I move my hands. The gaping space between some of the glitters isn’t too obvious as well in real life. I should have recorded it on video so I have proof but alas, that didn’t cross my mind earlier while the light was still good.
Don’t worry, all is not lost in this nail polish, however. I think a base coat will quickly save the day. That’s what happened when I did Starry, Starry Nails. Currently, I’m making a note to myself to buy gold nail polish. What do you guys think?
I promise to be back tomorrow with another post. I was actually productive last weekend and did a lot of makeup looks that I can show you guys. Plus, it’s time to do my monthly favorites and the haul posts I’ve been delaying. Fingers crossed the lazy bug won’t hit me again.
Until next time, lovelies! Ta-ta!
