Yesterday was my last Friday of doing The Activity Which I Can’t Mention in Detail That I Used To Do 40 Hours A Week.
I whipped up the mani my Friday morning, scrambled around putting on pantyhose with one hand and taking a nail photo with the other, and then….left the camera’s memory card in the bathroom when I went to brush my teeth. I ran around trying to find the card so I could upload the post, but then I was getting late to work. I have also left a razor blade in a bag of Cheetos (I have NO idea how that happened) and rhinestones in the spice rack. I know that means I’m really distracted because I’m too tired. Thank goodness I’m not operating heavy machinery! My brain tends to hibernate when I get in this state, that’s fore sure. But I’ll have a lot more free time on my hands from next week, so I won’t have to run around like crazy.
Normally, I’m not a yellow person since it’s streaky and clashes with my skintone, but it is one of the most cheery colors I can think of. The base color is a 1/3 mix of China Glaze Lemon Fizz, clear polish and a medium yellow from the dollar store, plus a little pearl white pigment. I then added some MAC Reflects Pearl Glitter to make it a bit shimmery, but it kind of got overwhelmed in the pearl pigment. For any glitter, a more transparent base is better because it allows the glitter to show though better.
From there, I painted on some black and white ribbons and bows and topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite. Not my usual style, but it was still work-appropriate (at least for my last Friday!)
Have a nice weekend everyone! Tokyo has a typhoon warning at the moment, so it looks like it’s going to be a windy, rainy weekend. Boo!
