NOTD: Rimmel Dazzle

Today is quite out of routine for me. Squirt is spending a day with my co-worker whose grandson is about her age (playdate is what they call it, lol). The house was so quiet in the morning, love it 🙂

The bf has his Convocation today, so we’ll be at his school for part of the afternoon. This guy is collecting degrees, I can’t understand why he loves studying so much, lol.

Anyway, it was time to change my nail colour last night. The bf suggested me to try the colours of his school (gold and black), and I thought it was fun. So here it is!

For gold, I went with Rimmel Dazzle, a cute subtle gold with enough shine but not too overwhelming.

For black, I reached for Sally Hansen Hard as Nails with Nylon in Beet Red. It isn’t a true black, as you can see the shine in the bottle, but it’s dark enough. The purple shimmer is not really visible on the nails.

I choose to do a big black stripe down in the middle of my index and ring fingers instead of painting the whole nails black – to tone down the contrast a bit, lol. I don’t have any black konad polish, so this “design” has to be it, for now 🙂

Hope you have a good weekend!
