Midweek Update: Harem by Illamasqua

Happy Thursday everyone! :)

I want to give y’all a quick update regarding my manicure this week. If you’re just joining us, welcome! To bring you up to date, last Monday, I had used a Nail Varnish by Illamasqua called Harem, a beautiful creamy lilac shade, perfect for Spring.

Manicure Monday: Harem by Illamasqua

You can read all about here, which is basically my first impression of the brand and how I liked it. Lemme just say, it didn’t impress me then and there.

Comes to this past Monday, my manicure was still in pristine condition. Needless to say, I had quite a few praises for this nail color.

As you can see, for a old week old manicure, that is pretty impressive. Shine was still there, hardly any chips. You can read about how I changed my opinion about Illamasqua here.

But, what happens when that one week mark passes? Will the manicure still be in great condition? Or will it start to deteriorate that makes me wish I had done a new manicure on Monday? Hmmm.

Today’s Make Up: Sea Sprite

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all doing well this terrific Tuesday. Yeah.. Can you believe that? We’re three days from the weekend, but don’t blink or it will surely pop up out of no where. It’s like the older you get, the faster time seems to go by. I remember when I was in elementary school, a day could NOT drag by any slower. Tsk tsk…

Arizona has a 60% chance of rain today, and not just rain but thunderstorm with high winds and all that good stuff. At the moment though, no more rain, just very, very cloudy skies, dark clouds and very humid. I really shouldn’t go anywhere today but I dreamt of my Grandma last night. Maybe she’s lonely out there by herself… So I decided to go visit her today. I spent some time out there just talking to her, filling her in on what’s happening. I think she’s happy there, resting next to her husband. She’s resting in peace now. I miss her and not a day goes by that I don’t think about her; I just can’t believe it’s been 6 months already.

I did some lazy makeup today since I didn’t really want to do full out makeup. I didn’t want my efforts to go to waste if I were to be caught in the rain. I haven’t used any of my Maybelline Eye Studio quads in the longest while so I thought I should give them a go today. I wanted something bright and whilst going through my drawers, Sea Sprite caught my eyes.

Manicure Monday: Harem by Illamasqua One Week Update

Hey, hey, heeeeeeey you lovely gals (and guys). :) What a lovely way to start off the week, with rain, lots and lots of rain all day. I love it so much! Downside to all this rain is I am way too lazy to get out of the house. It’s okay, I’m good at improvisation, I have plenty of ish to do staying in as well. So that was pretty much my day, stayed in, sipping on hot cocoa with lots of marshmallows, can’t forget the marshmallows. :P Heehee. Uhhh… what now? Oh yeah, not all about sipping hot cocoa, I did work too, boring stuff. Mehh, like cleaned my brushes, dusted, cleaned and reorganized the makeup room. I also cleaned out my makeup, threw out the old ones and wiped down the ones I kept. Overall, it was a very productive day. I am kinda hoping it’ll rain again tomorrow so I can have a reason to stay in to finish up, but let there be sun on Wednesday so I can head out for errands.

Anyways, new week usually means new manicure, however, I’m sure y’all read that biggo title up there stating that this is an update post. Haha. So yes, I am reporting back here with one week nails, using Illamasqua Nail Varnish.

Remember my manicure from last week? No? Not a problem, lemme help you out.

But aren’t you curious as to how one week nails without a top coat would look like?
