nails and football

Exams are finally over! The freedom feels amazing, but weirdly empty. So – obviously – I decided painting my nails and buying some new nail polish would fill that gap well, and be a nice treat for surviving exam season!

At the moment, they’re this gorgeous red colour, as you can see in the top photo, that I may have “borrowed” from my mom, topped with an Avon 3-in-1 base, top coat and strengthener. Two days in, and not a single nail has chipped, which I think is a new record.

I think they went pretty nicely with my dress, which you can see the bottom of in the picture. Annoyingly enough, the weather decided not to be a dress day around lunch time, so I was freezing. At least my nails and clothes matched though!

And the book in the picture is ‘Wuthering Heights’. It’s one if my English Literature books for A2, and I’m determined to keep on top of my work this year, so bus time is now book reading time.

If you’re in the UK, Tescos has the Maybelline Colour Show line on offer for two for £5! I realise I’m starting to sound like I’m endorsing Tescos – I promise you I’m not! It’s just the shop I go in the most!

The turquoise nail varnish – Urban Turquoise – felt nostalgic for me, reminding me of Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb. Makes me sad to know that that cartoon came so late on in my childhood – it’s up there with Scooby Doo for me!

The white nail varnish – Winter Baby – is definitely going to be used for Greece, and I’m thinking of trying to show my support for England and trying to do St George’s cross designs. It won’t work, I know that already, but it can’t hurt to try!

On a less nail varnish related note, football is a pretty major thing for me at the moment.

For those of you living under a rock at the moment, the World Cup (aka the second biggest sports event to the Olympics) is in full swing! Personally, I’ve never been a fan of football, but during World Cup season, I have the stamina to manage a match a day.

If you haven’t guessed, I’m supporting England, because I’m from England. Sure, tell us we have an awful team. I, like any other England supporter, will just bring up 1966. We can hope!

What’s your favourite nail varnish colour, and are you bothered at all by the World Cup?
