Have you got any plans for New Year's Eve? We are having a relatively chilled one; just going for dinner then coming back home to see New Year in. New Year isn't my thing; I much prefer Christmas.
I'm not sure what I'm wearing yet tonight because (look away if your squeamish) I have to be careful with clothing against my post op wounds... it's vile I know but some of them are healing and are at that stage where they can catch and some clothes irritate them. So I'll probably end up wearing a lose fitting something or other. As I'm at a quandary with what to wear, I had to paint my nails kind of neutral so I don't have to worry about them when considering outfits:
I decided on OPI's Nein Nein Nein! OK Fine! Which is a dark green/grey colour with the Holy Grail of nail polish at the mo... OPI's Man with the Golden Gun which is a gold leaf top coat.
I painted the tip of my nails with the gold leaf then went back and done the whole nail because I wanted a heavier amount of the gold on my tip but that's only worked on some of my nails unfortunately. I think I need to practice a bit with the application technique!
It is lovely though. Some people think it's overrated and I can understand why, however, being such an OPI fan I love it. It's like when you have a favourite artist and they re-release an album and the only difference is the limited edition artwork but you buy it anyway. Or kind of like that... in my head anyway!! It's like a must.
The only thing about this is I think it works best with dark colours or really light nudes so if you're say a bright nail polish wearer this probably won't be a welcome edition to your collection because it's the contrast between the gold leaf and the base colour which makes it in my opinion.
Well well well... I now feel I should end this post with something profound and dramatic with it being the last of 2012 so here it goes (may be babble rather than something profound and dramatic though...)
2012 has been a tough year for me. Both my parents have been involved in separate accidents, I've been in ill health and even my brother has had to have an operation. Two of best friends have had stresses and strains to deal with and all in all things haven't been a bed of roses. Despite these tough times though I am lucky enough to have loved ones who support each other to the absolute hilt. Through thick and thin we're there for one another and we will continue to be.
On a personal note though I really want to thank each person who has clicked on my blog and read what I have to say. It really does mean the world to me. On occasion this past year has been testing and I've been left feeling like I have no where to turn but my blog has really been my saviour in some aspects. When things seem to be falling apart and I need just five minutes to 'regroup' my blog has given me the opportunity to do so. Talking about a lipstick or nail polish, even just for a few minutes has helped me momentarily forget my worries and lighten up my stressful self. It's really been my outlet and me time and without it I don't know how down I would have got.
The interaction I have with some of you beauts via blogs and twitter has also given me a social circle which I never expected to gain. I feel so lucky to class some of you as my friends; I mean God, I probably speak to some of you via twitter more frequently than some of my friends in 'real life'. The support and care I have received from you guys has been beyond lovely and without sounding mega cheesy... so heart-warming! So thank you guys... mwah mwah mwah!!!
Let's bring on 2013 together and make it a one not to forget! :o)
Big hugs to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
