Current Nails and Current Read


I thought I would squeeze a quick nail update post in during this busy busy week! So here it is, short and sweet.

This morning I painted my nails with Julep Alice polish, and used Recollections microbeads in Heather to create a caviar manicure! This is the first time I’ve done a caviar manicure, and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out!

Also, in the back of the picture you can see that I’m reading Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I’m about a third of the way into it, and it’s quite good! It really grabs you. Anyways, more about the book to come later!!!

I will be back to the blogging world on Monday, so until then, ta ta! :)
