Clothes from ASOS Black collection for Christmas; Last photo: Holding Paul & Joe Nail Polish (001) & Gold nail wrap by Nail Rock

I was so smitten with my gold nails by Nail Rock that the manicurist (Mike!) applied for me at the ASOS Christmas Bar the other day, I was doing spirit fingers on the bus all the way coming home. If only I’d known I’d have to peel them off one by one like fresh bandaids after the mistake of displaying fingers to le boyfriend. He whined ‘They remind me of Russian grannies gold teeth, take them ooooooooff’ so I stuck all ten of the pieces on the refridgerator. GRANNY GOLD TEETH GRANTS NO ENTRY TO FRIDGE.

Thank you Jen for inviting me down, brilliant idea with the pick & mix for beauty samples!

Edit: Animal magnets arranged by le boyfriend, sadly he has all power over fridge…

  3. Hahaha @ gold granny teeth! I actually really like them, but your boyfriend’s suggestion won’t allow me to unsee that particular image now. Still, they’re cute!

  4. Those spirit fingers are LITERALLY gold (hah!). And they rock, seriously. I’m suddenly envious and have this strange desire to have metallic or lace nails. It’s such a pity that le boyfriend didn’t approve. I’m sure Russian granny will be in style soon.

  13. Gold nails! Yes, they do look like granny teeth, but I don’t see why that’s bad because, oh my god, gold nails? (Needless to say, my boyfriend would probably run around yelling “witch!!” if I came home with those. Sigh, men just don’t get it.)

    Your photos are always beautiful to look at :)

  17. You are waaayyy too soft-hearted to the bf, methink. Granny’s teeth? No way! They are AMAZING. I might still be learning to put one simple colour on my nails, but these are opening new golden horizons…

  19. Ha, Le Husband would definitely be the same way. I’ve got this nice black wrap long buttonless cardigan like thing from American Apparel (you might have it, too?) and I love to wear it lounging around. He called it Russian Grannie too, oddly enough. What’s up with that??

    Lovely pictures but would you mind sharing the shot of the gold nails on the fridge?

  25. Sigh…guys just don’t know better, do they? I constantly make it my mission to dress like a Russian granny, need to hunt down some gold nails (and possibly a good tooth) right now!

  26. oh gosh what a pity :( i love the gold nails! i always find it amazing how varied the tastes between guys & girls are. something that makes girls swoon all over, the guys can appear all disgusted. oh well, at least you managed to have fun at the christmas bar. lucky girl!! asos is my ultimate ULTIMATE dream place <3<3<3

  27. haha, my boyfriend hates when i wear nail polish although recently i think he’s sucked it up and realized he can’t win. silently i think he loves me a little less for it (jk). if it means anything, the gold was absolutely stunning. :)

  28. Oooh, I love those gold nails! But I know I wouldn’t be coordinated enough to apply those foils smoothly.

  29. Gold nails added to the looong list of man repellers… I might be the only girl in the planet not having worn a pair of ballet flats ever since they came out because my boyfriend thinks they make feet look alien. This blog is so funny on this subject: http://www.manrepeller.com/

  30. how bizarre! so you stick the nail colour on? i’m pretty sure i had something like that when i was a kid. very cool though… the gold definitely channels a sort of rapper tooth look, but it’s pretty cool. looks like a lovely event. xx
