It's An Emergency!

If you follow me on Instagram you might know by now what I'm talking about (check this post here).

In case you don't know what I mean, here's the story: 
I went away for 3/4 days and decided there was no way I'd need to bring a full nail kit with me. Actually I decided to take matters further and decided I didn't need any nail instruments whatsoever.

I felt brave and confident. I felt powerful and like I could rule the world.
Yeah... that lasted until I chipped a nail - Ibet you saw that coming, right? ;)

Long story short; of course I had to run around places and drag Bf (he's a saint sometimes, I tell you!) with me until I found a nail file, an acetone bottle, base coat and a nice polish.

Here's the one I got:

This is Essence I Love Summer Break, from their Beach Cruisers collection.
Funny thing is: where I lived (the big city) these aren't yet available - where I went to (small city) they had them all... hahaha
I chose a texturized polish because I knew then I wouldn't need a topcoat - smart hey? ;)

It's a lovely polish, opaque in two coats and it can go up to three days without chipping and without showing much wear - I took these photos when I got home after the getaway.

Of course I added some nail art for the photo shoot and you know since I found out about markers, that I use them on texturized polishes for simple nail art look.

I went with little fluffy clouds on this one, just because they look really cute and, let's face it, who doesn't like adorable lil' clouds, right? ;)

So now you know my little nail adventure during my time away, I hope you've learnt what everyone should already know: never leave the house without nail polish :))

Hugs & Kissies,

  1. Haha awesome that you got a nice manicure with that little nail adventure you experienced.

  2. My husband and I took a trip and visited a friend of mine. She laughed and made fun of me when she saw I had packed more items in my nail kit than I had makeup. :)

    1. hahahaha :) How I understand that - specially since I rarely wear makeup ;)

  3. Very smart idea :)) I usually don't use any polishes when I am going to a trip, my nails go in vacation too :) But if I buy some nail polishes I usually try them out :)

    1. That's what I was going for but I really can't stand the sight of chipped nails haha
      And as I'm trying to grow them out I'm always fearful that if they don't have nail polish on, they'll break - silly, I know ;)

  4. Love it so much! I want that essence polish ♥

    1. You would love it, dear, and it would look great on your nails ;)

  5. Even if I'm just out for the day at a meeting or something, I always carry a bottle of the polish I'm wearing and a bottle of top coat. The moment I forget to take them, I ALWAYS end up with a chip!

    1. Same as me!! If I take supplies with me nothing happens - if I happen to take none, all hell breaks loose ;) hahaha


You just made this girl smile! Thank you for your comment and for sharing your thoughts with me! :)
