I woke up this morning to such dim, dull and drab weather that I came to the decision that I needed some colour in my life. Having only a few minutes before I had to make a run for my train, I decided that the fastest and most effective way to do this was splash some colour on my nails in the form of nail polish. I used a NYC deep red nail polish that came alive against my dark blue skinny jeans and grey coat. I have always believed that nail polish is the best way to make an effort whether you're going for a glamorous, chic, vintage or laid back look. The subtleness and simplicity of it in contrast to the busy and fast moving everyday life has the opposite effect; the nail polish is a flash of colour, a shock of brightness and a moment of enchantment.
This jolt of colour had a positive knock on effect to the rest of my day. The train journey to university would otherwise have been a long, drawn out journey that I would have had to ensure because of the murky morning BUT I sat on the train taking in the beautiful scenery and marvelling at the constant changes of Mother Nature.
How was your day today?
