Wake up sleepy head!

So maybe I was running late today because I slept in, and maybe it was because I was finishing my manicure. Rubbish excuses both of them, so to distract the party I was meeting I just waved my hands in their faces like mad woman. But you know it worked(for 5 minutes), and they were all rather impressed with my handy work, pun intended. Thank you to AusStyle who suggested I try this.
I forgot to tell you where this top was from I think last time I posted it- Valley Girl. I got it the same day I got the pants from the previous post. Both were meant to be 'around-the-manor-gins-ok-at-12pm' attire, but they are slowly making their way out onto the streets of Melbourne.

Thank you for your suggestions for a pale pink nail polish, the one in this post used as a base coat is Bourjois 'Rose Corset' from the So Laque! range. The beauty department reminded me that I did own one pale pink polish that generally sits rather lonely on the shelf, quite unused. Not any more!

oooh pretty manicure! i always envy those who are skilled with mani/pedicuring. any tips? xx

Vintage Verve said...

Hi LM, lovely to see you looking so well. I have the most awful time keeping my mani in mint condition, unlike your good self. Perhaps I need to find someone else to do it for me on a more regular basis!

I love the ruffle collar on your top too.

Once in a while Valley Girl turns up absolute gems. My black plaid skirt from there is a love of mine. But other than that I usually look horrible in Valley Girl clothes!

Thank you so much for your encouraging and lovely comment. It means a lot to me coming from someone who's blog has always inspired me!

UberOriginal said...

I wish I had the paitence to do my mani that way, and with such precision! xx

Porcelain Blonde said...

Really love your makeup here and the sideswept fringe - you especially soft and pretty :)

The mani looks amazing! I've been planning to do the same, but with navy/gold and navy/white. Fun! xxx
