Weekly Sum-Up #37

Let's start this Weekly Sum-Up with polish - Essence Passion for Fashion. A gorgeous purple creme which is perfect for me, but there is such a thing as having too much polish. You know how it goes. I swatched it before but haven't really worn it until this week.

Passion for Fashion held on pretty well, so I just slapped some Max Factor Fantasy Fire over it. Good enough for another two days.

Katy Perry. Sporting a jin jang manicure on a cover of Elle magazine. She's so 2009. ;)

Here's my take on Jin Jang Manicure (from 2009). And this is my crappy tutorial for it, if you're interested.

My new spike through earring arrived! My obsession with spikes is never-ending.

Flower of the week: Gladiolus

Man candy of the week: Elijah, the new sheriff of Area 5. Those eyes. His ''real'' name is Keram Malicki-Sanchez. 38 years old, of Polish and Ecuadorian origin, quadrilingual.


Posts of the week:

Nail Stories let Lava Flow over her perfect nails. Now I want it too!

I have to admit I don't have too much patience when it comes to nail art. One more reason to admire The Nailasaurus and her Frankencherry manicure.

Hey, everybody! The Polish Addict is BACK! This time for real. So she says.

Bruno from Acetone and Old Lacquer did the best glitter gradation manicure ever. Too bad my nails are so short...

AmyGrace from The Polished Perfectionist certainly picked the right name for her blog. She keeps posting one perfect manicure after another. This time it was the green gradient manicure that blew my mind.

Music of the week:

Thanks for looking and commenting!

    Quadrilingual? Yes, please!
    And I love that Boot and Rally song.

    Passion for Fashion is a wonderful colour, I love seeing it.

    Does Katy Perry in that picture look slightly odd to anyone else?
    Like... I don't know, like they airbrushed it almost into a face of somebody else :| .
