Oh how I love the combination of the 2 nail polish names, Gemma Breathes Life!
Before I delve into my haul, I just wanted to say a quick hello again and update on what's going on with me. I realize I used to do updates about my life in the past probably because schooling days were a lot more exciting with projects, exams and holidays.
I've neglected this little space of mine for the past 2 weeks because I've been caught off-guard with a wave of hectic-ness. Not with dramas, variety shows or anything else this time, sadly no. It's like I'm working 24 hours lately because while most of you know I have a full-time job, I'm also still doing some design freelancing along the side since my current full-time job is now more marketing-centric. Probably not the most interesting facts you guys might want to know about me so skip before the 'cut' if you're bored but for those who want to hear me ramble, read on!
So once home from work-work, I'll switch over to design work and its so odd how lately there's been quite an influx of projects (not even festive cards/designs!). While my boyfriend handles majority of the freelance things right now, he can't cope with everything on hand so I'm stepping in to help. As with design, one draft doesn't cut it, there will be amendments etc. So yes, pretty much the story of my life for the past 2 weeks... and oh yes, not forgetting having a social life!
But I guess as they say, when you're young you should live life (and earn money), so I'm trying my best. I know I might not be able to run on 3 hours of sleep a day 10 years later so I'll make the best of time right now!
Blabbering aside, on to the actual haul. It's almost as if I lured you in with a haul to talk about my life. ha!
Awhile back Sophia (retailtherapy) had a little nail polish sale on her blog and yes I am still in that nail phase so it is predictable that I would have hauled something.
Not just one, but two!
And only now do I realize how both colors seem to have this one resemblance that attracts me to them, the sheen.
Another Zoya to my collection! I only have two right now..
As expected Breathe Life swatches rather sheer but it is a lovely color and you can choose to build it up or use it over a solid color for that ethereal sheen.
The following are 3 coats of each polish.
I've been lazy with manicures lately... Though a part of me wants to try all the colors and combinations, another part of me is lazy to remove, file/trim my nails and go through the whole waiting-to-dry period after painting.
I know, its quite horrible to even be lazy to do that but like blogging, I'll probably get back to taking my time and enjoying it once I am able to get a breather with all thats going on.
I can't promise a flow of frequent updates right now but once the hectic period passes I will be able to!
Thanks for reading!
p.s. I finally sat down and did a quick sidebar link-image design (for Twitter/Youtube etc). Let me know what you think! I've been so irked by my lazy method of using text links alone but was too lazy to do it till now :P
