Swatch Watch: ILNP Reminisce

Greetings all,

Since we last 'spoke' I have finished 13 Reasons Why, done many hours of work, waaaay too much laundry, dyed my hair, applied for a job, finished a book, and did my nails twice. One of these manicures was a fail, but you'll have seen it on my instagram story if you follow me on there! (If you don't, you should: @nail_parade). So, a pretty successful week, I'd say? How was your week? Hope you had a great one!

On with the wonderful manicure I have to show you today anyway. Today's polish is...
ILNP Reminisce... Fact file coming up very soon! This polish arrived in one of my ILNP nail mail orders, in which I got the following 5 very, very beautiful polishes (seriously, I'm in love). One of my favourite things about ILNP is that they come in these totally adorable fancy-schmancy boxes that make me feel like I'm opening something very exclusive.

So from left to right, you will see: Greatness, Harbour Island, Reminisce, Cygnus Loop and Masquerad…

Shoe(box) Polish

Hello hello,

Wow, another post?? Am I feeling okay? (Thanks for asking, I have actually been in bed almost all weekend with a cold - who the heck gets a cold in April in California!?!?) Anyway, I am writing this in between episodes of Netflix's new show 13 Reasons Why, one of the most controversial shows I think has been around in a while. This show is nuts, I want to finish watching it and yet it's super triggering and just plain sad to think about both how real and how glamorised it is. Can it be both at the same time? I'm unsure.

I'm not here to talk about that stuff anyway, I will let the more experience media bloggers open that can of worms. (Though I am opening to chatting about the show and general tv stuff if anybody would like to, just drop me a message on fb/twitter/instagram).

Today I am here to make a ridiculously huge list of the polishes which live in my shoebox. Yes, an actual shoebox - us students have very good storage solutions, okay?
Despite only brin…

Life and Blog Update!

Greetings from Cali!

Nice to see you here again... or nice to see me here again? Sending my hugest apologies to you all for being so lame with posting things. Everything just happens to come around at once whenever I plan a post apparently.

If you didn't notice already, you may see that a few things have changed. The blue-tiful colour scheme is sticking around, but everything seems a bit sharper, fresher, more modern, yes? (I'm hoping you're saying yes right now). Yes! The blog went through a bit of a makeover and I must say I am loving the new interface personally, but I need to know what you think about it. Let me know in the comments below if you're loving it or hating it, and if there are any improvements or errors or suggestions that you have. I have some wonderful swatches planned for you guys, bought some new polishes, and hope to finally have a little bit of blog time to get back into the swing of things, I missed writing random posts about nails and blabbing o…
