'you know when...'

1 August 2013

...you pop into Boots 'quickly' to get some mundane stuff, and then get totally sidetracked and end up spending an hour (and a lot of monies) buying a load of cosmetics, in expectation that you will be going out to some cool East End funktion with after-do or some such, that is totally imaginary? or is that just me? 
Because actually I never go out anywhere since I was 28.
Anyhow, thought I'd show you what ended up in my Boots basket amongst the shampoo and baby wipes.
I'd like to say they kind of 'fell in' my basket, but I carefully thought through, ummm, yes I NEED gold and pink and green nail varnish, I just need it.

Im not a one for painted nails, it just don't look right on me, like high heels.
BUT I have got a thing for pale gold metallics and bright colours. I guess thats why I make jewellery.

I mean, just look at the glittery goodness...

I thought about being creative with the nails (stumps I mean). Our kiddo seemed to appreciate my efforts for snazzy nails whilst I scrubbed her clean in the bath, at least.

I even painted over the 'post-camping dirt' that wouldn't budge from my toes.

I think a mole could have done a neater job with a bag on its head.

All jolly good fun. I have used up half a container of nail varnish remover, and the flat could ignite with the flick of a light switch.

p.s. sorry these pics are all blurry. I was using a different lens, and maybe I had too much fumes.
