Nail Arting: 2

I haven’t done a Nail Arting post in a while, my sincerest apologies… Ok now that you have forgiven my lazy nail tendency (I have mentioned this in Nail Arting: 1) I bring you this week’s colour:

Navy Blue

As I sit here listening to Madame Lana Del Rey (One of my nail idols, she’s amazing yo) and reflecting on the colour of my nails… I think to myself that Navy Blue is a colour of royalty, mystery and even elegance. The internet might not say that but I like to think so and my pretty blue nails make me feel that way. So whatevs. I also feel very Emily Blunt in The Devil Wears Prada. Fun fact: The first recorded use of Navy blue as a colour name in English was in 1840.

I’m wearing Sinful Colors (2 Coats) and a top coat of Yardley Treatment Natural Crème

This is probably my favourite nail polish


sexinadream - Pink Box

New Cape Town electro-pop duo sexinadream, consisting of Mavis Vermaak and Wessel Albertse, formed in March 2012. Working on their self-titled debut album, they recorded their first single, Pink Box, at Resonate Audio in Woodstock, Cape Town with producer Rob Brinkworth in May 2013.

“I've always been interested in human relationships, the mystical and the subconscious. These are regular themes in our music, so our name kind of sums it all up in a poetic manner.” – Mavis

“I added some vintage keyboards synths to the song for a slight 80’s vibe, but it has an unusual slower tempo that makes it difficult for people to place the song in a specific genre, which I think is pretty cool.” – Wessel
The single has to date been playlisted on a number of local and internet radio stations, with a music video in the making.
