Some people have baked countless loafs of banana bread, some have brewed barrel after barrel of cider and I for one have explored the world of nail-art during the ongoing pandemic.
So if push come to shove, I can resort to bringing back my manicure maffia which I had running at the age of 12 whilst living in Luxembourg. I promise you that one day I will share this very strange, embarassing and in some ways rather impressing story of my life.
It is not so straightforward that a light lilac shade on nails will go well with a gray/brown tone, but hey – if you don’t try it out how will you know for sure? I painted the entire nails entirely with the gray/brown shade called ”Lila Hyacint” from Yves Rocher and let it dry.
Then I followed in on the tips of the nails in an uneven way ( who needs perfection anyway) with a light lilac H&M nailpolish. Finished off with a layer of Top Coat to protect the color and to add longevity to the look.
Best part of this look apart from the oddly satisfying color-combination? The fact that a certain someone let me know that this nail-look reminded them of an ice cream they used to have as a kid.
I for one can certainly see the resemblance between my work of art and a giant footed ice-cream.
