Baby Blue.

October 19th, 2012, Friday

Purple, eh? This is new. What brilliant vibrancy. It seemed like the perfect time to photograph my hand next to the ebullient yellow wood of my wardrobe and my sickeningly cheery blue bed-sheet (almost the same colour as my nail varnish) (of course, this is as unintentional as anything can possibly be) (I am not quite so coordinated as that).


Grimes - Infinite Love Without Fulfilment

I don't know how much of a fan of Clare Boucher, as a person, I am, but there's no denying my appetite for her music. This is currently my favourite on Visions.


The nail varnish is, as ever, Essie Bikini So Teeny.

Mister Deep Breaths.

October 14th, 2012, Sunday

Most of the time, my patterns tend to sprawl across my hand, as it's an addictive activity and it can be hard to stop adding just a little bit more, but sometimes, I love the simplicity of an isolated pattern that very much sits on the skin rather than transforming it and following its lines.

That's the beauty of arm skin: it is so different from the skin on my hand; it is such a smart surface, such an absence of texture, ready and waiting.


 An excellent version of State Trooper (here's another):

Drop The Lime - State Trooper


The nail polish is, once again, Essie's Bikini So Teeny.

Have No Fear.

Back on the horse.


And a classic, too:

Bernard Herrmann - Twisted Nerve


The nail colour is Essie's Bikini So Teeny, but I am so overwhelmingly disappointed
with this polish that I won't recommend it.
