a a dash of fash: unpolished

unpolished



I wish I could Photoshop some sunshine in these pictures, but I'm afraid it's just the way it is. Signature Dutch weather has arrived again. The pictures look kind of Photoshopped already, my beanie really stands out against all the brown and grey, which makes it look like I'm placed against some photographer's backdrop. So not true, these pictures really are taken in Amsterdam. I live a 15 minute train ride away from Amsterdam, so me and my Amsterdam-based best friend had a well-balanced lunch there: very healthy hummus and aubergine wholegrain sandwiches combined with very unhealthy cheesecake. Perfect!
As you can see I tried out a new *cracked* topcoat, definitely not sticking with that. I already have issues with making nail polish look polished (to the disturbing extent where somebody asked me whether I do my nails when I'm drunk), so I don't need nail polish which makes your nails look unfinished in my life. Hats off (or in this case beanies) to all you nail art bloggers for trying out cool nail styles. Here's a request: could you do a tutorial on how to apply regular nail polish? It would totally make my life.
