Who Likes Sushi?

So... today's mani comes with a dedication. 
You may not always be aware how hard it is to sometimes juggle it all: nail art, photo editing and blogging and social media interacting with (1) a 9 to 6 job, (2) three kitty kats and a home to take care of, (3) family life and (4) a happy love life.

Juggling does prove hard at times and I know I would never be able to do it as good as I do if it weren't for Bf's strong support - thanks, Love <3

Of course that means that Bf and I sometimes need to reach an agreement: if I'm to do my nails (yet again!) then I have to get inspired by and dedicate it to him somehow ;)

That's what today's mani is all about:





Sushi nails!!
I had never ever had sushi before I started dating Bf ;)





Not that I'd eat this Nigiri though - I still can't eat the whole raw fish thing - the texture irks me and I can't swallow it without retching (a whole lot of TMI on this post ;)), but I can't deny their look very yummy ;)





Here's a macro shot of Mr. Nigiri Kawaii, which I wish I'd been able to paint slight more perfect.
(I think I need to buy/make a new detail nail art brush)





This is the nail polish I wore as background and...
I. Am. In Love.
A perfect, smooth two-coater, brilliant peach-y, nude-y shade.
The shimmer is its own, as no topcoat was used during the making of this swatch! Perfection, I tell you :)




 
Plus!, Flormar has names now! Yay!!! :D
This is Flormar Jelly Look Salmon Pink (JL02).
Now, do you see why I had to choose this baby to match today's nail art, right? ;)





After completing the accent nail I though nothing would go better with it than simple orange dots (the same orange as the salmon's bit) and voilĂ : all done! :)




I hope you've liked this one - it surely made my Monday a happier day ;)


Hugs & Kissies,

  4. Aw, so cute! I'm not too keen on sushi either, except for this particular Salmon treat... Now I kinda urge it! Especially since I can't eat raw fish at the moment ;)
    And yes to the juggle struggle! It's a form of art to make it all run smoothly. Sweet compromise you've made :)

  7. This is such a great post! So many topics covered! I am always amazed at how nail bloggers are able to stay sane with all you do. Under the same conditions, I am afraid I would start feeling that blogging would become a demanding chore that I just have to get through. I would hate to feel that the pretties (polish) and my nails have become Work! I am sure at times it does get a bit stressful for you all and I am so thankful that you have the full support of your dear BF.

    heheh, Mr. Kawaii is so cute! Scrumptious! During our long, hot and humid summers here, I feel I could live on (freshly-prepared) sushi. (And round it out with the raw veggie rolls!) Salmon sashimi is my favorite, more so than tuna. Isn't it serendipitous to have found such a beautiful, perfect salmon-colored polish?! (and Yay! for names!)

    The subtle dots are just an ideal finishing touch on your design/mani. Splendid!

      Thank you so, so much, for always finding the time in your (I'm sure also) busy life to always write such kind, sweet words to me - THANK YOU <3

  8. I have from this collection Pure Milk, but I am not very pleased with it, but this pale pink shade is truly beautiful. I may have to try this one too! Very cute your design :)

    1. I have to agree with you - the white is a bit too runny and it tends to flood your cuticles if your not careful. Nonetheless it covers in two coats, so it's not too bad ;)
      As for this colour, you should definitely try it - it's beautiful, hun!
      And thank you so much for stopping by*
