hands and feet

i NEVER paint my nails. never. mostly due to the simple fact that it will inevitably flake when i play guitar. nevertheless, i broke down and got me some cute nail polish today. i've been dreaming of this tiffany blue essie polish since i-don't-know when.

essie blue nail polish

the guilt came about halfway through the painting session... i realized that i indeed had the urge to play gee-tar today. i was sure they would be demolished, but only my right pointer finger seemed to take the brunt. for the most part, it stayed intact.




what color should i go for next?



  1. Pretty colour. And that's the exact same reason that I don't paint my nails. Guitar playing has it's bad moments, but I always choose guitar over pretty hands. (:

  2. this is exactly my thought process :)

    however, i'm personally feeling lately that chipped nails are even more rock than bare ones. or, at least that's what i'm telling myself. hence, this is the new look i'm going for...

  3. I love this color, so pretty :)


  4. Very pretty. I've been without internet (and still am) and I have missed your posts dearly! Glad I could pop in for a sec and see your fancy but still rockin' new look : )

  5. I LOVE this color. I would love to try it out!

  6. Eeek. That's such a smashing colour. I don't know why, but it reminds me of ice cream - mmmm.

    I'm the opposite: I feel bare when my nails DONT have colour on them!

    P.S. I looove your header. It's way cool.

  7. So pretty! I love that shade of blue. My favourite colours at the moment are pale green, gold glitter, and natural colours like beige or pale pink.

    I have a similar problem, I knock my hands into stuff a lot at work so my nails always get chipped. I find that lighter colours or glitter polish doesn't look quite so bad with a few chips in it though :)

  8. This is such a lovely colour,I love pastel shades at the moment,so sweet.

    I just bought a yellow polish,quite bold,but its super summery and bright,I love it x

    Hope your having a fab day x

  9. I have got the same color and I love it! What about trying gold?!?!

  10. Thanks for dropping by my blog. ♥

    That color looks so gorgeous, your photos are making me wanna buy it! :)

  11. Thanks for your comment :)

  12. I play ukulele so the strings are much nicer to my nails than guitar strings. Still, that doesn't mean I'll be paying for any fancy manicures. Great color, another friend of mine just got the same one!

  13. I love that color, I have the same one but it never stays on for more then 2 days because I sew almost everyday. Cute blog I am now a follower :)

  14. I hardly ever do my nails because they do not last long, but I like the way they look when they've just been painted.

    I love the color you chose! I'd go for a green/teal varnish next, maybe? ;)

    Have a fun day! :D

  15. Ahah, so funny! :)
    If it can comfort you, i don't play, but my nails are always a mess anyway. :)
    However, lovely color!
    Can't wait to go and listen to some of your songs!


  16. This is the same shade my nails are!! Mine's called 'vintage blue' it :]

  17. I love this color. ♥ Try yellow - my fave color at the moment.
