Summer is never really summer without some properly cold rainy days, at least here in Austria. I remember that in the first week of July, I would go on Scouts Camp and it would always rain. It was the only week in July of which I would say with a 100% certainty that it would rain.
Well, now I don’t go to Scouts camp any more, so clearly my narcissistic view of the weather has changed. Now it rains every weekend when I have plans. And it happened that I wanted to make pictures for you, hence it rained (a little, but still enough to prove my point).
I decided to wear Marc Jacobs Jungle, which is a beautiful bottle green creme polish. It dries so fast and glossy, I’m amazed; also, what you see on the pictures is one coat! Nail polishes like this prove that the extra couple of bucks/euros/currency-slang of your choice are worth it – to me, at least.
To accompany the beautiful Jungle, I picked a glitter mix by Girly bits called erin go bragh-less, which is basically a green jelly with green and golden glitters throughout. I used one coat over Jungle.
Both of these polishes are not polishes I bought or picked. The first one, Jungle, was a gift from E. who, from time to time, fuels my nail polish crazy by bringing me nail polish gifts. the second one, erin go bragh-less, I received to borrow from C., my nail polish friend.
Obviously I knew where I was going, so I found the combination of polishes rather amusing. The background story is that my friend E and I ‘rent’ a piece of farmland where we can pretend to be gardeners.
I figured that for a city girl, jungle would be an appropriate polish to wear to out super tidy little field. And for erin go bragh-less? Hello, there’s hay! Wwhy is there hay on the ground? Could it be more obvious? (if you don’t get it, please don’t google it. It isn’t PG-rated)
