A happy color to chase away the bad weather

08 September 2009

Because a bad weather does not necessarily need to translate to a blah mood.
It has been raining nonstop in my side of the globe for the last few days and it is sooo easy (and tempting!) to just curl up in bed and slumber the bad weather away. But for some of us who are not  lucky enough to enjoy the past long weekend, we had no choice but to get up from the comfort of warm sheets and go face the gray skies and downpour. Today is my rest day though, so today I get to enjoy my warm bed. Ü
When I get bored and a bit blue-sy, I paint my nails a happy color. Instant pick-me-upper! This week, I painted my nails Turquoise by Elianto. So pretty and unique! I love how the colors pop, but not in an overpowering way.

EDIT: Like what I said in my response to Nina, it's pure creamy liquid goodness in a bottle :) It is plain turquoise, no glitters, shimmers or anything. What I love about Elianto's formulation is that it does not smell too harsh and it does not dry easily while you are still applying it (unlike other cheaper brands that tend to dry before you finish so the nail polish brush tends to leave brush marks on the nails).

Hmm, now that I think of it, the color actually reminds me of Sweet Valley High's Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield's eyes. You remember how they were described in the first chapter (of each book!) as having turquoise eyes? Nostalgia galore! Oh I remember how I loved reading those, they were certainly a big part of my pre-adolescent/ teenage years. Now excuse me while I go looking for my old copies of them books. Ü
*Elianto's nail polish costs 99php per bottle.

Wow, that's so pretty! I've been looking for a cheap turquoise polish for some time now. Is it a cream or does it have shimmers?
