Scissors' Cut

So... yesterday I went to the Art shop and tried to get me some 'chevron scissors', don't know it that's its real name but I'm sure you know what I was looking for.

It turns out there were none. Lil' me got sad and was considering a tantrum but... I came home instead and did my mani ;)

Now, first off, I'll show you what nail polish I had on my nails. You know I've been testing Bellaoggi polishes just for the sake of my own entertainment, right? 

So, this sky blue baby, I'm about to show you, although not a one coater, can definitely stand out, for not showing a single sign of wear after another day at the beach:





Apart from some bubbles, maybe due to the widening of my nails while in the water (?), I don't see either chipping nor tip wear :D




Oh, if you were worried about it, this little brush info comes right off, so as not to stand in the way of dipping your brush in the bottle. They did think of it all ;)




And in case you're wondering, this gorgeous sky blue is No.38.



Now onto the manicure I arranged for this baby.
I've told you already how I wanted chevron scissors and found none, right?
So check this out:




This is chevron, baby! Oh yeah! :)
hahahah




I started by applying a bit of tape to the middle of all my nails so as to get me some orange tips.
I used an OPI polish I got last Summer, but have no idea what its name is: the bottle lost the tag loooooong ago! Sorry! :(




After letting that dry for about 3/4 hours, I picked my black Staedtler permanent marker and did a vertical chevron line to the side of each nail!
And voilĂ ! Don't care about any scissors ;) 
muahahaha





Although weird, I kind of liked these! They're quirky! ;)
What do you think!? Do let me know down below in the comment section and... wish me luck!

I'm off to buy a dress for my cousin's wedding this Saturday and, oh!, how I hate shopping! Keep your fingers crossed for me ;)


Have a great amazing day, lovelies!


Hugs & Kissies,

  9. I'm so curious to try these BellaOggi polishes *___*
    I've never got them yet 'cause here in my town they're more expensive than they are in other cities, so I hope I can find them somewhere else!

    1. Well... I can't say they're exactly what you'd call cheap here either - they're sort of on the medium level so to speak. I get them for 5.80€ and I definitely think it compensates (and how!) the investment! Got me a couple more actually (shame, shame, shame!).
      Do try them out - I think you're goind to love them! :D

    2. Here they're priced 7€ and I'm not surely going to spend such an amount of money. Some friends of mine do find them about for the same price you paid them so I'll gibe them a try! The problem is that here BellaOggi's sold only in specialized beauty shops, that's why they keep prices so high :/ Maybe I'll have a look on Ebay :D

    3. hhahah - I totally get you. I'm trying to contain my polish buying needs so in my mind if I get one or two that are great, although a bit mroe pricey, it's a good bargain, 'cause I'll wear them often ;)
      I am lucky to have found a shop in Lisbon that only sells good quality (and not very expensive) polishes, but we have the same problem with 'specialized beauty shops' and their 'prices' :/
