Nail polish is the worst thing ever AND A NAKED GIVEAWAY

Even though I got to enjoy a few glasses of champagne at work yesterday (it was Thursday so it was justified) it was still so stressful. Why? I'll tell you. It has to do with my fingernails. I started the day with pretty plum colored nails but then they started chipping so after I got home from the bank where I had to get a roll of quarters (I would do anything to have a washer/dryer in my apartment) I decided to change the color. So I did this pretty purpleish taupe color that I can't describe with words and it was good. But then I had some drinks with some friends and I smudged a few of the nails. So when I got home at like 9pm I obviously had to switch the color so I did a pretty pale pink. And I didn't finish it until like 10pm. And then I went to bed and that was a mistake because now THIS is what I look like. I'm sure all you ladies know how I'm feeling right now.
 

 
Ew have you ever looked at a picture of you hand up close like this??? This is disgusting and you can REALLY see the finger that got ruined when I smashed it through a window ...another story for another time. Anyway, all that to say I really have nothing to write about today
 
 
BUT
 
there is something exciting!! One of my good friends Rachael just debuted a brand new blog design over the holidays and it's amazing!! To celebrate, she got some bloggers together to give one of YOU a Naked 3 palette. I've never had a Naked palette, but I love makeup and I've heard only good things about it so I'm jealous that one of you is going to win.
 
Lucky. Ugh.
 
And please go check out Rachael's design because seriously ... it's awesome.

  1. First of all, I HATE YOU FOR DRINKING ON A THURSDAY AND NOT INVITING ME.
    Secondly, that's too much nail polish painting. Ef that.
    Thirdly, YOU DON'T HAVE A WASHER AND DRYER IN YOUR APARTMENT? HOW DO YOU LIVE?

  3. Take it from me, someone who does their nails ALL the time and likes to paint them at night: a quick dry top coat is your best friend. And I've tried about eleventy billion of them. Let me know if you want suggestions!

  4. Hi Juliette! I'm a fairly new reader of your blog :)
    That used to happen to me ALL THE TIME. My nail painting moment is usually 11pm and when I went to bed they all got sheet marks and dents all over. Now I paint a coat of Seche Vite and 5 minutes later I'm dozing off and no dents/marks to be seen ever again!
    Anyway, happy new year :D
    Lots of love, from Spain.

  7. GIRL I feel you on those nails. I splurged for new years and bought glitter nail polish from sephora, because glitter nail polish is nearly impossible to get off. WRONG it was chipped to bits in one day & I look like a mess.

  8. I second what Sara said; quick drying top coat is what you needed. With a good top coat, my nail polish lasts at least 1 week.

  9. ahhh I pay to get my nails painted because I cannot stand when that happens after you put all that hard work into painting your nails. Ugh. Also, I suck at putting on makeup so I don't have any tips. Oh wait, yes I do. When you get mascara all over your eyelids, lick a q-tip and wipe the excess mascara off. Gross yes, but it works. I mean, I guess you could run the q-tip under the sink instead but ain't nobody got time for that.

  13. SECHE VITE. GO buy it RIGHT MEOW. Its like $7.99 or $9.99 or something, but it dries in 5 seconds and I'm totally not kidding.

  15. I hate nail polish too. I mean, it's gorgeous, but always looks like shit on my hands. I find a color I'm so pleased with and then it smudges and people are like "ohh can I see your nails?!" and I'm like ehh whyyy... not a close up.

  16. Favourite makeup tip is that eyeshadows can be used as highlighters too!

  17. I would have to say contouring with a bronzer to make your cheekbones pop is always the best, also to make my nose look thinner :)

  18. Probably one of the best make up or skincare tip I ever got was to wear suncreen daily or a moisturizer with suncreen daily.
