Bye bye 2012! I don’t think I will miss you that much…

2012 came and went.

When looking back on the past year it is with mixed feelings. The year brought with it a lot of hospital visits for me, my friends and my family. Way too many hospital visits in one year. 2013 can only be better than 2012, so that is what I am counting on! I can feel that this is MY year. I will be handing in my infamous thesis in some weeks, which already makes the start of the year fabulous. I can’t wait to get it out of my life, let alone get ON with my life. That being said, 2012 was also the year that I started this blog and the new hobby (obsession!) with nail polish. It’s a brand new world for me and I’ve only been part of it for a couple of months, but I already feel a big part of it and I have met so many great people with the same crazy hobby as me. 2013 will be good!

December 2012 brought a long with it a lot of gifts from friends and family. Below is what was added to my stash the last month of the year last year.

Starry Night and Late Night Snow

Last week I made this amazing manicure with my Navy Blue Nubar and Marry a Millionaire China Glaze. I wore it for 4 days and it looked so festive on my nails. I couldn’t stop looking at my nails. Unfortunately, as I wrote in my last post, I am in dire need of daylight. I tried (not that hard though) to take pictures in the morning, before the sun was out, but I only managed to get a couple of pics that I dare to show you. I really gotta get my hands on a light box soon, cause it’s driving me crazy being dependent on daylight. Especially when it’s so scarce here in the North.

I thought this mani should be named Starry Night, but my better half thought of Late Night Snow. I can’t decide, so it gets both.

With it listen to Sufjan’s soothing voice. I’m getting all Christmas-y, even though I think it’s still too early:

I also shot some with my mobile camera when I arrived at work. A little more light from the windows, but still not much to work with. Sigh.

Appologies for the dry cuticles. Disaster struck. I had forgotten my hand cream at a friend’s house O.o
