IsaDora Beetle Green

Hey there!

It's awesome how time flies when you're doing nothing. But for once, I have the time and that makes me smile like a little kid. Or should I say it makes the kiddo inside of me smile? Never mind.

What I have for you today is IsaDora Beetle Green, and it's amazing. I love this kind of emerald greens, and surprizingly enough I have only one. Why? I don't know, maybe I was waiting for the perfect one ;) Anyhow, I find it most appropriate for the season, don't ya?
And today I went to the World Press Photo 2012 exposition with The Boyfriend, and enjoyed it a lot. I like art, and paintings are good. But photography is simply great. One picture caught my eye (and my slightly feminist heart): Inna Shevchenko is an Ukranian feminist who fights in top-less, she's provocative, she's bold, she's strong and she stands for a cause I can only acclaim: equality. Here's she:
I'll welcome 2013 in the same position if I remember to do so... What will you do when the clock strikes 00:01?

Happy new year & thank you, again.

Color blocking & snake update!

Aloha everybunny!

How's the after-Christmas but before-NewYear's eve time going? I hope it's being terrrrrific for you! :D

Today I have some color blocking to show you, in nude and black. Nothing rare, you'll have seen this a gazillion times, and yet I wanted to have my take at it. Bandwagon b*tch...
Now let me put this down in words: THIS look ROCKS (I say so myself, and shamelessly! That's how much I liked it). 
Went to a party with those talons, got complimented. TONS. And guess what? This is as easy peasy. All you need is some striping tape and one color. Place your tape randomly, avoid making two identical nails, paint, take off the tape and... done. Boom! Magical. Just make sure you wait some time before topcoating: you want your lines clean and perfect. That's about it.

Okay, onto some SNAKE stuff (run!): Discordia shed again, she's grown 10cm in about 6 weeks (I swear! I was astonished and even double checked) and she did it before my eyes. If you're not familiar with snakes, let me point this out: some people have kept the same snake for years and never watched it shed. They tend to prefer intimacy for it. But mine is open-minded, yay!

To celebrate, here are some pictures of my baby-beast freshly shed:
The yellow is starting to peek through her neck, while her body is clearly brown, white around the saddles and grey/pastel brown on the outside. I wonder how she makes those colors look so neat and beautiful together . Maybe I am a weirdo, but I luuuurve this snake.

Hasta la próxima,

M.

Merry Christmas / Feliz Navidad / Joyeux Noël. I'm not Lion.

Hello & Merry Christmas to you all ^^

I hope you had a wonderful dinner yesterday, ate and drank lots, laughed loads and loved tons :) I spent the afternoon in the kitchen with my mother, cooking. I enjoy those little moments so much..! The dinner was exquisite (obviously.); I can only say I had a great time!

On my nails I was wearing a full-on bling manicure. One coat of gold polish (IsaDora) and two coats of China Glaze I'm not Lion on top. It was bright, festive and oh-so-Christmassy! Judge for yourselves:
I am in love with I'm not Lion, but honestly... It's not a polish you can wear everyday unless you're some sort of 24h party people. Which I am not. And that's exactly why I decided to wear it on its own, just because on December 24th I can.

Well, with that said, let's keep eating folks!
