OPI Samoan Sand + ELF Desert Haze + the history bit..

I put the OPI on yesterday and noticed a chip this morning whilst at work. Horror of horrors.

The line along the ring nail is just an ineradicable ridge rather than polish streaks.
I like this combination. I said I'd be mostly wearing mud and I meant it.
I do have a jelly gradient planned though as I've seen a rather pretty effect on another blog. That may be my sole foray into colour for some time.

Why is my skin peeling off? Am I a reptile? Or just at the end of my tether?
Teachers grow notoriously irritable at the end of the year. I've got leavers stressed about leaving, colleagues stressed about changing roles and everyone hot and bothered. It is craaaaaaazy at my place. It's a challenge to get to Friday without committing manslaughter or becoming the victim of a violent crime. Grrrrrrr!

Breathe deeply. Smile. Breathe out. Drop the shoulders. Unclench the fist. Put the knife down. Put the knife DOWN!

Fashion history now from the BBC - my beloved BBC

A gold cape. Gold. Not gold thread.
Beaten gold and found in Mold. That's North Wales. Not far from my birthplace actually. From about 1700BC. Beaten and shaped from a single gold ingot about the size of a ping-pong ball. It's incredibly thin apparently. May have been made locally or brought to Wales as part of a trade. Grave goods. What incredible talents humans possess. (Not me obviously). So this was the epitome of high-end designer catwalk red-carpet what-have-you if you go back four millennia. Wow.

If I do get brought before the beak I'll need character witnesses to explain that my actions occurred as a result of heat exhaustion and provocation by colleagues. OK? Thanks.


  1. That OPI polish is gorgeous colour x

  2. Oh, triple wow, I'm in love with that gold cape. I love over-the-top accessories and that must be the maddest I've ever seen. I'm tempted to dig out my metal detector and see if I can find one buried in the Staffordshire Hoard field.

  3. oh wow, gold cape!!! it's probably pretty heavy, hmm. That ELF color looks like it would make a dern fine full manicure too!

  4. I was trying to figure out what I'd wear with a solid gold capelet but decided with a piece like that, the rest of the outfit is irrelevant.

  5. I don't think the cape IS heavy actually. I'm not sure if it was really meant to be worn - probably just symbolic.

  6. I'm looking for OPI Color Miami Beat were can I get it from I'm living in Bloemfontein - Free State

    I'm crazy about OPI Cutex and especially Maimi Beat Color
