Holiday Nails

Back. Depressed. After a month in +35 got into +15. People in swimwear changed to people in jackets and coats. Just to cheer up, I'm posting some random pics of my summer manicures. Disregard the quality of application and photos, it was holidays after all :)

Bright turquoise, almost the colour of Cycladic islands waters - Depend #227:


Golden foil China Glaze Midnight Kiss.. I wanted to wear golden nails so much this summer!



Pupa #715, my ever favourite blue:



And two pedicures, although I don't usually post feet pics. Someone was waiting for me in Santorini so much, that he even wrote my initials on the ground :) :)


And this gateway plate... I just liked it :)



One observation: I guess now I know why there are so few nail bloggers from Greece: it's soo hard to paint the nails there in summer. My polishes were freaking out, being goopy, leaving streaks, so did the top and the base coat!! Bubbles everywhere, every time.. 

And finally, this is the place that totally won my heart... Santorini:

  1. So true! The weather was (and still is) so hot here in Greece that I get bubbles while trying to paint my nails. Luckily, polish thinner helps a little. Hope you had an amazing time in Santorini, it's such a beauty!

    1. Hooray, I have a Greek reader!!! :D
      I was so frustrated with all that bubbling and goopy polishes, it took me some time to realise that heat is the reason..
      Santorini is fantastic, needless to say anything.. :)

  2. so pretty ! I even like your pedis :p The PUPA blue is PERFECT!
    I think you're right, my mother was in Greece last year in September and the weather was sooooo hot, can't think how hot it was in August, anyway your manis are perfect, the hot weather didn't affect them ;)

    1. Thank you!!! Well, I was just avoiding macroshots, otherwise all the imperfections would be very visible.. I'm ok with the heat itself if I have a sea next to me :) Heat in a big city is awful though :{
