The upshot was that I have been sporting some seriously knackered manicures for the last few weeks. I had Butter London West End Wonderland on for the final week of the semester, but I was constantly on trains and not returning home until 8pm, so all I had to show for it was a couple of rather sorry iphone pictures. This on the other hand was my Christmas day mani - I found it squirrelled away in a forgotten stash at my parents' house, and it seemed appropriately festive, so I slapped it on with no base or top coat. It worked a treat. Three coats and it's still slightly sheer, but I quite like that effect. I do wish it had more obvious champagne glitter as well as silver, that would be super.
I lost the bottle. Have a picture of my new watch instead.
PS - the other news I've been digesting is that I got through to the final interview for a year's fellowship at one of the Ivies. I was so completely gung-ho about it until I actually got through to the last stage, and now the dominant sensation is terror at the thought of potentially uprooting across the pond for a year, and working around my parter, mortgage, pets, etc...but it is very flattering to get this far out of 250 applicants so I am not complaining! Still, scary, eh? I've already bought my interview suit and interview polish to match (Essie Not Just a Pretty Face, bien sur).
PPS - I won nfu.oh UK's advent calendar give away for Christmas day! So look for that polish soon, now that I have time to apply it again.
PPS - I've changed my hair colour again and now I'm having to work out what goes with copper.
