pool colours



I am typing this with nails of turquoise. It looks more jade in the bottle (by Essy: I got it at least a year ago) but after two layers, it's a deep, solid turquoise. To match my little bracelets. I'm wearing it with variations in beige (or, nude). I am so into the colour turquoise in general but especially, on this dark cold snow flurry-ish London day, now.

Love this girl's look: South Beach, Miami. I am kicking myself I didn't introduce myself and ask her to pose, but at the time, I didn't want to bother them: they just looked so relaxed and happy. I love the patterns of her dress. And for those who think they're too pale to wear nude: think again. It's all a question of accent colours, pattern, and attitude.



I wish I could just dive into this, right now.

hurray for turquoise! you know i love that color, particularly when it's an accent color. i'm checking out this girl's nails....unusual and rather pretty actually.
i've got so behind on correspondence, blogging and commenting (thanks to photobucket issues, travel, and returning home to no internet) but i'm back in action now, i think!
