Mixing and matching is something I always tend to do in my nail arts. Matching colours, mixing print with plain, mixing studs with colours, ... Somethimes it works perfectly, other times it's just... meh. I don't like floral prints to fill all of my nails: just like plain colours, this looks boring to me. Yeah, that does sound weird, but I just need to mix it with something else. a stripe of colour usually does the trick, but this time I wanted to make it something extra by putting some triangle shapes in the nail art too.

In between two classes me and two friends decided to go shopping instead of just doing nothing. I got really excited and FINALLY bought some Autumn stuff. Thanks to the colder weather I'm finally in a Autumn mood, even though I wished the warmer temperatures would keep on a little longer. But thanks to my fantastic new goodies I'm ready to defy the colder temperatures!

A while ago I bought this gradient topcoat from Catrice. It serves as a coloured topcoat which you can put on any bright nail polish you want and then it will make your base coat a tint darker. Sounds really cool, right?! I've tried to make a gradient across my hand before, but I never had the right polishes that would do the trick. But now that problem is solved! :D
This is how the base colour (mixed with some glitter) looks like compared to the darkest 'gradiented' nail.

I finally gave in to a turtleneck. I always thought turtlenecks to be boring and stupid, but my opinion about them have definitely changed by buying one! Even though when buying one, I didn't quite realise I was buying one...
Now how come I didn't realise this?

It's been a while, but I'm back doing my beloved nail arts! It's been so incredibly busy during the holidays and now that school has started three weeks ago I haven't had time to paint them. This time I used my blue Kiko colours I bought in Paris, a new Essie colour, a white nail art pen from Barry M, some striping tape and some regular tape.

As much as I love living in a city during the week, I also love to go back home to the nice and quiet of the country side. At least once a year the boy and I will go take a walk in the woods, mostly in autumn. It’s just so relaxing to walk around without hearing anyone speak, except when we are talking to each other of course. Last weekend was the perfect weekend to take a walk in the woods: it wasn’t raining and it hadn’t rained that much the days before so it wouldn’t be too muddy.

In the second week of September I went to Lisbon! Even though I wasn't that fond of the city, the boy and me had a wonderful time. :D Here are my OOTD's of the citytrip.
I was wearing a Forever 21 floral crop top, a Forever 21 high waisted jeans short, my Topshop satchel and my cool sandals with golden accents.
