Dress - ASOS (similar here), bracelets - thrifted/antique, shoes - Aldo, nail polish - Sally Hansen "Coral Reef" and "White On"
I've been bored and have taken a sudden interest in painting my nails... mainly trying to perfect an ombre technique. This is attempt number two. Expect to see three and four sometime soon? My friend/hairstylist Lauren did my hair the other night; it's a bit shorter than what I was hoping for, but I love it regardless. It's so soft and actually has shape again. I think I have a goal hairstyle for whenever my hair is long enough, but it could take a few months.
I really like how the detail shots came out this time around; I downloaded a few curves from Julia Trotti and am quite pleased with the results. I know I always say it, but I want to improve my self-portrait photography skills. I might invest in a larger tripod instead of using a Gorrilapod with a stool, and a remote would seem to be a handy addition.
Not much has been going on in my life - I worked a double on Wednesday, ran into a friend I haven't seen in ages last night, and caught up with another friend over lunch this afternoon. I'm very sentimental and tend to see the past through rose-tinted glasses, but it's always nice to discuss the present while reminiscing over distant memories.
