When shopping's banned, you know what really cheers me up? Shopping. For smaller stuff.
I'm really sick of my sad little nail varnish selection, so I trundled off to the Mavala counter at my local beauticians in search of an update.
Being a small sort of place, they didn't exactly have the best selection. In fact I might be tempted to use the word 'naff'.
Pearlised everything, and almost all red, pink or suspicious brown. Luckily I managed to unearth a gem. Standing on its own, unworthy of an allocated spot on the naffstand, was a pot of 'Berlin' – a pale, grey shade (far left, below).
I love Mavala Minis; they come in millions of colours, and are small and cheap (under £4.00 each). After all, has anyone ever actually finished a nail varnish? Mine turn into weird, gelatinous gloop long before I reach the bottom of the pot.
I've got a couple of meetings next week that definitely require chic Lauren Conrad nails: now I need to put together a suitably chic outfit.
This was a thinly veiled excuse to post some more pictures of LC.
