BRAIN FREEZE

After yesterday's seriousness, I think it's time for a palette cleanser. I don't know about you, but once summer hits, I become seriously addicted to slushies, or as our local 7-11 like to call them, Slurpees. Whatever you call them, I fucking love these barrels of cold, sugary bliss. I am the exact opposite of a lizard - put me in the cold and I will happily thrive, but if I get even a little too hot I melt into a puddle of uselessness. 

Happily there is a 7-11 just down the road from my house, so I can get my fix without dying of heat exhaustion. While I was on holidays, I decided to be all experimental and shit and fill the cup up with a cornucopia of flavours.


Because I am apparently that sort of person now, I looked at all those clashing colours swirling around, and thought to myself, "That would make a great manicure." And because I was on holidays, I went home and did it.



It's not the classiest, most restrained of designs, but that's kind of what I dig about it. It hurts your eyes, like the sun. Also, more to the point, I had a wacky idea and just went and did it, which is very unusual for me. I'm not normally a spontaneous girl, I'm not normally a colours girl, but there I was with multi-coloured splashes all over my fingersnails, because I'd bought an unusually bright Slurpee that day. I'd blame it on heat madness, but I think it might be...dare I say it...the tiniest, most fragile blooms of confidence!

  1. Fuck yeah! That looks awesome! I like how crisp the lines are, while still looking spontaneous and lively. You are awesome, and should feel awesome!

  2. The downside is that now I really want a slurpee, but I'm still at work.

    1. Tsssh, 7-11's aren't fancy. Just throw some thongs on and you're good.
