I'm back! Yay! I really enjoyed the conference I was at last week, lots of interesting discussions were had on how to use crystallography as a vehicle to advance Africa! The week did have a slight sad moment, as our lodge room was broken into and my iPad (and my friend's laptop) were stolen, boo :( So if anyone feels like buying me an early Christmas present, hint hint ;) Haha. Ok, so on the last day of the conference, we finished early, so I killed some time in Dischem before heading to the airport and, of course, bought far too many things that I don't need. But hey, who here can resist pretty things? One of the nail polishes I bought was this one by Catrice, called "Mermaid My Day", which just seemed to be the perfect shade to wear for summer beach days and pool parties. It's a metallic turquoise that applies evenly, with 2 coats needed for good coverage. I painted my nails on Saturday, and took this photo this morning, so that's about 3 days of wear. As you can see, I have a teeny chip on my pinkie finger, but overall it's held up well. The glitter I'm wearing is one coat of the polish I featured here.
If you haven't tried Catrice polishes yet, I can highly recommend them. The formula is great, and they are around R50, which is very reasonable for a 10ml bottle of polish.
