I painted my nails using Haymarket by Nails Inc, I have had this for a couple of years but I don't think I've ever actually used it which is a bit odd! Clearly I have far too many nail varnishes! It is a lovely minty colour however the formula is quite thick and gloopy, it had also separated and it took a lot of work to get it back into one solution! Saying this, it was actually opaque in one coat which is fantastic! However just out of habit I applied two coats. They dried to a sort of semi-matte finish which I then Seche Vite-d to get them nice and shiny! I really need to find out if Seche Vite are cruelty free or not, I will be sad not to be able to buy another one.
I did this last night and took photos tonight so excuse the chipping! My nails are terrible for this, especially as I was at work today and that can be tough on them.
Feel free to stop reading now if you just want to see my nails haha, but I thought it would be nice to do a sort of chatty update of my life as I've not really done anything like that before.
I am in third year of uni at the moment studying maths, which I hate, don't get me wrong I do love maths (GEEK :)) but I'm just not getting on well with uni at all at the moment. Last year I had 3 resits and only passed two, meaning I had to carry over a subject in the second semester of this year, so this semester was really tough.
At my uni we usually do 3 subjects per semester and then because of my one from second year I was doing 4 in the 2nd one. I ended up failing all of my subjects in the 2nd semester - although I did pass the one from second year, yay! And I had failed one in the first semester, leaving me with 4 resits in August! I genuinely did study a lot, but clearly there was something fundamentally wrong with my methods, or unis methods, or something!
I am planning to sit, and hopefully pass, two of my resits in August and then go back to sit the other two exams next year with the students from the year below me. I also have got a tutor to help me, and basically teach me everything haha! So only having 2 resits is definitely taking the stress off a little bit. The only thing is now that come September I will need to find some sort of full time job to pass the time, eeek, terrifying!!!
I want to go to college to do make up artistry, I tried to apply this year to do it but I somehow missed it! I was raging! So I just need to find something to do until next August if I managed to apply and get in next time.
Also I don't know if I mentioned this but I passed my Grade 5 Singing exam! I was so pleased! I did really well for my songs, like, surprisingly well, however I did really badly in aural and sight singing which brought me down a lot. I am still so happy though because other than my singing lessons, I've never had any other musical training like at school, so the theory side of it I really struggle with.
Well done if you made it through that! Remember if you follow me to enter my giveaway :)
