On CNY Day 1, my brand new Gel Polish manicure disintegrated
By half the day, I already have 7 naked nails and playing mahjong with 3 remaining intact
My abusive nature towards my nails have caused them to wither and refusing to recover…
After going naked for 7 days, I slapped on this new coat of nail polish
(thinking that comparatively, nail polish has lesser harmful effects than Gel… *fooling myself)
I needed a nude coat to cover the ugly surface of my majorly buffed nails..
Yes, dry cuticles apart…
It’s done a pretty good job in terms of coverage!
Did You ‘Ear About Van Gogh? H54 from OPI Holland 2012 collection
For those who are unsure of how the name was derived…
Windmills in Amsterdam
I first knew about the Dutch Painter – Vincent Van Gogh and his work when I was 11,
& replicated several of his drawings in my art class.
Thereafter, in 2007 – I visited the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam
His life story was a rather depressing one as a struggling artist.
There was a point in his life where he lived in solitude and he cut his own ear off..
& hence the name of the OPI Holland Collection Colour: Did You ‘Ear About Van Gogh?
