Urban Outfitters Daisies & Half Moons

Sunday, July 6, 2014


Once again, I've taken an accidental hiatus from the blog, oops! But I'm back now and that's all that *really* matters, right?

Whenever I go shopping, I can't resist picking up some new polish. I was recently at Urban Outfitters and they were having a sale -- 2 polishes for $8! Considering their polishes are usually $5 apiece, I decided that it was totally worth it. I chose a nice pinkish nude (which I'll show you soon cause it's gorgeous) and a clean pale gray shade.

The pale gray shade has a name that starts with "LAR" and ends with "R" but the label peeled off so I'm not exactly sure what it's called. For some reason they don't put the polish names on their website, and I can't find any swatches of it! :(

I wanted to do something really elegant and modern-feeling because this shade just seems so clean and modern.

Polishes Used:
Urban Outfitters pale gray?? | Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street | white acrylic paint | Claire's black beads
I didn't have any hole reinforcements so I just freehanded the half moons. They came out okay, I guess!

 The Nails Inc. foil polish got kind of crinkled cause I didn't wait long enough for it to dry before top coat, but I kind of like the crinkled effect.

The white daisies didn't show up too well in the photos :\

Now for two items of business:

First, I think I mentioned this a few posts ago but Franziska of Frankie Hunters Nails and I are organizing some sort of blogger collaboration group! We were thinking a couple of manicure prompts a month, nothing too demanding :) Let me know if you're interested!

And second, my blogiversary is coming up! I published my first post on August 1, 2013. What do you guys think I should do for my blogiversary? (I don't think a giveaway would be possible D:)

Thanks for reading, and I hope your summers are going great!

  1. Cute! The pale gray polish looks very pretty, it's a nice soft colour :) I also love the daisies! Exciting about the blogiversary! Maybe you could recreate your very first nail art design? Or pick a top 10 of the ones you like the most? Sorry, I'm not very original :/ But congratulations!

    1. Thanks so much! Haha I guess I'm not very original either, I was thinking something along those lines :)

  2. Super cute and sophisticated mani! :)

  3. your nails look so pretty!

  4. Well, the "traditional" gift for first anniversaries (weddings at least!) is paper and the "modern" first anniversary gift is a clock... so maybe you could do a paper/clock themed mani?? Whatever a paper themed mani is!!! :P
    Oh, and I would be interested in your collaboration group. Feel free to email me at pandapolish29@gmail.com
    Congratulations on your blogiversary!

    1. Oh, that's a great idea! I never thought of that -- a paper/clock themed design would be super fun (but sounds pretty difficult haha). I'll definitely contact you soon!

  5. It looks super neat and delicate!


I'd love to hear what you're thinking!
