So I did it – I chopped down my precious talons. I know I’m just being dramatic, but they just look so awful to me! I’m so used to having long nails that I feel my fingers just look like sausage links now :(
Pathetic fallacy was abundant yesterday and today – I felt miserable after losing my long nails and it has been pouring with rain accordingly! So I guessed it was as good a time as any to try out Eyeko’s new Rain Polish. I won’t bore you with swatches, you’ve seen plenty I’m sure, but I’ll offer my two pence: The formula’s a winner but I don’t think the colour is as amazing as everyone else seems to! I like that it’s got a slight shimmer, but really it’s just a grey. Don’t get me wrong, I like it – I just don’t get what all the fuss is about! As for Saucy polish, it’s the same as it ever was (I have a mega old post including it here), just your basic red. To be honest I think it would have been a much better move on Eyeko’s part to repromote Pastel Polish from their original collection, that was a truly beautiful colour and would have really benefited from an improved formula and packaging. Anyone agree?
So as I was saying, I was being a total drama queen about my nails so sulkily did some very half arsed nail art over Eyeko Rain Polish. I literally just splattered Barry M Grey and MaxFactor Disco Pink onto the nails and dragged it out a bit with a dotting tool. It looked seriously crapola until I added China Glaze Matte Magic topcoat, but I’m still not loving it.
I plan to redo them tomorrow – I’m coming to terms with the shorties and intend to use this stumpy period to play about with Konad designs instead. *Sigh* in lieu of flowers, please send donations to a socially concious charity of your choice.
