How I wore it: Lush Lacquer Clowning around


Today I’m showing you a polish by Lush Lacquer called Clowning around. It  has a clear base and is filled with neon matte glitters of various sizes. I layered the polish over two light pink polishes (one from Misa, one from SpaRitual). As the neon glitters look the most fun in twilight, you get some rather blue, half dark pictures. I actually waited for the blue hour to make those pics, so there’s no filter-involvement here.

I think the polish looks fun, but honestly, the glitters somewhat curled and after a day, I was entirely fed up with this look. I love matte glitters, I love neon, but the glitters moved around and sunk (no idea how they did that, but look at the yellow on my ringfinger!) and I was not happy with it at all.

So actually I would like to talk about the Austrian public transportation system and especially the metro line 1 in the mornings and the people on this metro. In particular, there’s one lady who drives me nuts. There’s one door of the metro, and if you stand at this door, you will be closest to the excalator and therefore closest to the exit, which can be handy if you’re a bit late. I think it’s totally logical that this part of the metro is therefore more densly packed with people than other parts of the train.

But there’s one lady who will.not.move.away.from.the.door. I mean seriously, the second the train enters the prior station, she darts forward and stands directly in front of the door. Have you ever tried entering the train through a person with a death stare? Don’t. She seriously won’t budge, and stands there no matter what (she ignores old people and strollers alike). Then the doors close again and she moves to the middle of the doors, therefore cutting off anyone else who might dare to stand next to her. And when the train enters the station and stops, she throws the doors open, basically runs to the escalator and then: stands. What is all the impolite behaviour for, if she then stands on the escalator, with literally (and I mean literally, not figuratively) everyone else passing her by? I can’t for the life of me explain this lady’s rude and above all, ununderstanably useless, behaviour. I changed doors, by the way.

  1. I hav lusted after this polish for ever but not after I read this post. U look lovely as always. Btw try gettin into a mumbai local and u’ll be happy that there is jus one such woman in ur metro .. Lol. I stopped travelling by local mumbai trains long ago

    • hahaha see at my height, I don’t have that problem in the public transportation in bombay! Thank you for your compliment :) and I’ve heard so many good things about clowing around, maybe it just didn’t work for me?

  2. She probably lives alone, this crazy woman. People are like that everywhere. I think they lose their manners when dealing mostly with only themselves and work!

  3. That’s sad that your polish did that. I have the same one and I’ve worn it several times and had no trouble. I wonder if maybe it’s a defective bottle? :/

  4. Tolles Outfit – ich liebe das Kleid. Das mit der Dame in den Öffis kann ich gut nachvollziehen, zeitweise frag ich mich ob wirklich alle Menschen so blöd sind

  5. I think my lemming for Clowning Around is dead!

  6. Oje, na geh, das tut mir voll leid, dass dir Clowning Around nicht gefallen hat :-( So ein Schmarrn, dass sich der Glitter jetzt sogar rollt! Ansonsten mag ich die Kombi Neonglitter und hellrosa Lack sehr.
    Ich hasse öffentliche Verkehrsmittel – das ist immer eine Freakshow erster Güte ;-) Ich würd am liebsten überhaupt immer nur mit dem Auto fahren, ist aber halt wegen der Kurzparkzonen nicht immer möglich.
