A combination of feeling stressed, ill, dark nights and the cold have made me feel pretty down to the point where even shopping couldn't cheer me up *shock horror*.
But today something made me feel marginally better. Sparkly nails. I love that the tiny, frivolous things in life can make me feel that much better.
Today I hunted out my December glossybox and painted my nails with the sparkly Deborah Lipman (I should probably check the spelling of this..I have a feeling that Lipman maybe has 2 ps...and ns? but alas, I'm feeling lazy). Anyway, I was plesantly surprised. I love it! It's sparkly without being girly or trashy (not that these two things are necessarily bad). Looking at them makes me feel a little bit better :)
You can't really see the sparkliness of it here :(
Despite feeling poo and having a ton of work to do, I managed to venture out to the supermarkert and Boots.
I purchased a few more nail polishes (I've got a thing for nail polishes at the moment) a concealer and an eyeshadow.
Rubbish picuture, but
Ahh, it's taking too long to upload.
I purchased 3 Natural Collection nail polishes:
1. Praline-a nice, pinky brown colour.
2. Winter Moon- a white pearly varnish.
3. A clear polish which I have been using as a top coat.
4. Eyeshow-Natural Collection shade 'asteroid'.
I don't often wear eyeshadow, but I'd thought I'd give it a try after I heard that brown shades make blue eyes stand out. Always a good thing when you have blue eyes like I do.
I also got a Natural Collection cream concealer in fair, because I have been getting a lot of blemishes recently. Stressblah.
Oooh, I forgot, I got one more polish: a 17 'just in' one in sulk. Perfect for my January mood ;)
It's a gorgeous perly emerald colour.
DID I MENTION HOW CHEAP IT WAS?!
Guess how much it all cost? Ready? Just £11 something. Bargainous.
After working for five hours straight (whilst ill) I'm feeling pretty zonked. Time to chill out on the sofa with S and drink some Bucks Fizz. A night of pure class...
