Strength through polish

This week has been crazy and the weekend promises only to be more so.

In these difficult times, you can be guaranteed of a couple things:

1) I put a lot more thought into my wardrobe. This allows a little vacation every morning and something to get my mind off of work. Also, the better I present myself, the less likely people will perceive me as frazzled and that means that they will not see me as being unable to handle my new life as a PhD student.

2) I will spend time making my nails pretty. This way my nails can have a little party, and whenever I look down at then furiously typing away, I can smile.

Recently, thanks to pinterest, I have been having a lot more fun with my nails. For this past week and crazy weekend, I tried the sparkly tip look. Check out the pictures below. (I am still having trouble figuring out the best way to take photographs for blogging, if you have suggestions let me know!)

The base colour is Essie’s demure vixen (previously released as ladylike), and the sparkle tips are courtesy of Butter London’s “Rosie Lee”. What I like about this sparkle polish is that unlike others that simply spread and you can still see nail underneath, with enough coats this can fully cover the nail just like any plain colour polish.
