My Hands Got a Tan!

I do wear sunscreen. Actually, believe it or not, I wear SPF50 on my face and hands and I'm already naturally tanned (insane I know, but I prefer to respect the sun than to get hurt by it ;)) .

Still my skin had this thing where it gets tanned just like that! 
So, yes, you will notice my hands are a tad darker than yesterday - haha - and the fact that these were taken in direct sunlight only accentuates it more ;)

Today's mani is a rather simple one, considering I'm not at home and have a limited range of polishes, but I hope you like it just the same :)




It's like my skin is orange! hahaha :)
I did a pretty basic design and tried to spice it up with a couple rhinestones.
And it's official: now, not only my  neighbours think I'm nuts, people visiting from other countries think so too ;)




I went with my brand new Coral Neon No.601 for index, pinkie and thumb.
Although it's meant to be bright neon I didn't think it was much of that at all.
It's a pretty shade no doubt, but I wouldn't consider it much of a neon.




My ring finger got the same holographic polish I had on yesterday - Layla Mermaid Spell - only I added some rhinestones for extra shine ;)
And my middle finger was done in two coats of Jade Rose No.68, a beautiful bright neon pink, to which I then added some stripes in a V shape (not sure you can see it) using my Golden Rose Nail Art No.122, and a couple of dots with Jade Rose No.64.
Actually, if you pay close attention, I added a couple more dots for this here photo, as I thought I had added too little - bet you didn't notice the difference from previous photos ;)



After the photo shoot, I'm sad to say I went into the pool and ruined the whole look - haha
I'm too fond of water and always stay in for way too long, so my tips are actually chipping from all the chlorine in the water ;(

Anyway, I will answer to all the sweet comments you've been leaving me tonight - let me just bathe in the sun for a little while more (heard that Sunday the temperatures will be dropping again!).

Hope you're having a great day with as good a weather as the one I'm enjoying! :D


Hugs & Kissies,
Mina *

  6. Olha já eu estou com pele cor de lula, não há sol que me pegue!! Ai que bem sabia ir agora para uma piscina, inveja :)
    as unhas estavam tão giras, que pena ficarem arruinadas pelo cloro.

    1. Loool! A culpa também é desta espécie de Verão que vai e não vem ;(
      Ainda bem que gostaste das unhas - o cloro é um malvado, mas os mergulhos e os splashes compensam bem estas 'chatices' :)
