With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, I’ve been all over everything pink, white and red, and my nails are no exception. Instead of opting for the usual hot pink or cherry red to celebrate the occasion, I went for one of my favourite pastel polishes, Essie Romper Room. This super, duper pale, cool, milky rose-y shade is ideal for when all things romantic suit your fancy, or for when you’re feeling ultra feminine. I particularly love that this colour complements every complexion, because not every pastel polish is as forgiving.
This is one of my favourite times of the year, not for the total lack of outdoor activity, not for the short days, and certainly not for the weather, but for the lead-up to the holidays. Think about it, the hot drinks by the fire, the lovely layers and the idea of giving back to the ones that you love and to society as a whole; it is literally the most wonderful time of the year! With that, comes another great plus, the festive nail polish! Whether you opt for red, green, gold, silver, blue or glittery shades, you’re bound to fit in with the festivity and coziness of the season. Today, I personally felt a little more “classic,” so I went for one of my all-time favourite nail polishes, Essie Fifth Avenue.
I have a Sunday ritual of relaxing and unwinding from a stressful week. In the months of September – April, it’s unwinding from the stress of school, and in the summer months, it’s the stress of work. I love taking my time washing and deep conditioning my hair, skin and, of course, nails. Don’t be confused, of course I paint my nails on other days as well, but I usually enjoy the process more on a Sunday (it must be psychological). I like to think of Sundays as “Spa-day”, and today was no different. I was thinking about it and I thought I’d show you what I did!
