Nails of the Week – The Eye of the Typhoon

Today is a national holiday in Japan – Respect for the Aged Day – so no school. Score!

But, it’s also the day that a typhoon, number 18 of the season, has decided to wreak havoc over the island. Cue intermittent rain and gusty winds, delayed trains, or even lines that have stopped running.

I decided I’d be better of keeping high and dry at home.

And what’s a girl to do to while away the time when home alone? Her nails of course!

I took this opportunity to try out Rimmel’s #825 Sky High, a gorgeous teal colour, perfect for summer or typhoons, shiny and opaque in two coats.

I’m loving the “Xpress Brush,” although it’s a bit hard to get used to after years of regular brushes – and I’m a bit out of practice.

And I have no idea how it “Dries in less than 60 seconds,” but it is faster than most other brands I use, so I don’t mind.

My phone was really rubbish at capturing the colour, even more than usual. It doesn’t look nearly teal enough *sigh*

On the whole, a gorgeous, gorgeous colour that I will try to wear as much as possible while the humidity and heat linger in the September air. It’s still summer here as far as I’m concerned.

Kisses from Tokyo xoxo

  1. Yeah, true it helps with the streaking, but it took me a while to stop flooding my cuticles and painting half of my finger along with my nail and this brush just brings back bad memories 😛 So hard to avoid the cuticle line… They do have some great colours though.
