Something Sweet with rozes

For this mani I used 3 thin coats of China Glaze Something Sweet and stamped it with Konad White and Konad plate m65. Something Sweet is one of the few bottles that I have that's going empty, and I'll need to get a backup bottle soon. I have quite a big stash nowadays, so that this one's going empty says enough I guess, love it! :)
I think the mani turned out nice, but my pics aren't really color accurate, Something Sweet also looked a bit darker irl.




My cat Sue is getting better, she's still bruised up and a bit grumpy after her surgery, but it's not as red and warm anymore. I hope to hear some from the vet soon, but I'm a bit nervous for the test results. She has to go for a checkup on Monday, hopefully all will be fine with her and the results!

Take care!

Zoya Savita

It's been a while since I posted, and I'll probably be posting a bit less than usual in the coming week(s). More of that below this mani.
I used 2 coats of Zoya Savita, sandwiched with top coat in between, and then I added top coat on the tips. It's getting a bit easier to make tips like this without tape, although my right hand tips were pretty slanted >.<
Savita is probably my favorite matte polish, I don't have that many but it's really pretty! It can look pretty dark blue, but most of the times the purple shimmer is pretty visible.




As I said above, I'll be posting a bit less for a while, my head isn't really into polishing and blogging right now. I'm not feeling too great, and one of my cats had surgery on Thursday. Sue <3 turned out to have a tumor, I'm not sure yet what it was and if it's completely gone now, I'll hear that in a few days.
The incision they made was much larger than expected, it turned out the tumor went in pretty deep. I'm also worried about the wound, the top part is healing well but the bottom part isn't looking too great to me and is pretty warm, I hope that improves soon. She's clearly not herself now, which is only normal of course, but I'm amazed to see how much of a tough girl she really is!

Thanks for stopping by!

China Glaze BFF & AFK

As the title says, I'll be afk for the next 2-3 weeks. Maybe I'll have time to make a post during that period, maybe not. We'll see :) Either way, take care for now!

With not so much time and sunny weather the choice for my NOTD was easy, holo! Here's 2 coats of China Glaze BFF, no top coat. This is one of my favorite polishes from the OMG collection, it's a pink with a hint of purple (as the 2nd pic shows well) and I think it's a very nice color in normal light as well.



Thanks for stopping by :)
