Happy start of the week! Today I want to brighten your Monday with a super happy, super bright green from China Glaze. It is called Grass is Lime Greener (which I find a rather awkward name), and it is from the CHina Glaze Spring Collection, if I’m not mistaken. The bottle isn’t mine, I borrowed it from Polished Elektra (you know, my nail polish friend!).
I decided to add some dots in the middle of the nails, a simple design that is easy to make. I used an acrylic paint pen for the dots. Near the cuticles I added a fancy fake gem stone from Born Pretty Store.
The formula of this China Glaze was actually much better than I expected – reviews on this collection were overall terrifying. I only used two coats, one very thin one at first and then a thicker second one, that levelled out perfectly.
Recently, I’ve really been feeling cropped pants. I’m tall enough I guess to pull them off without looking double as fat and twice as short, and I really love the free-ankle-feeling. These pants that I ordered from J.Crew in a size that I usually have to try on before, in the hope that the measurements would be, you know, somewhat forgiving, are my favorite. They are, in fact, favorably wider than I thought they would be, and therefore I’m glad I didn’t order them a size larger. Somehow, on J.Crew factory, however, I have to order the dresses in the bigger size, otherwise I can’t zip them up.
I absolutely love the color of these pants, and I even have a bag in the same color. It appears that this is one of the colors I seem to choose all the time.
As a whole outfit, turquoise seemed a bit much so I decided to pair it with a blue grey top from Noa Noa and a grey blazer. The bracelet is from ApreciouZ, the shoes are from Mellow Yellow. The bag is from Marc Jacobs and the scarf from Anokhi.
What color do you always reach for?
P.S.: The studs were sent to me for review from Born Pretty Store. There’s a pic on the side, if you want to order, you get 10% discount on your purchase with the code EHX31!
