At Least It Will Keep Growing

I have some exciting news that I've been meaning to mention for ages but keep forgetting for one reason or another. I hope I don't sound too big headed for telling you, but one of my pictures that I posted on Tumblr has nearly 150 notes! It's still astounding to me that people find my simple little manicures attractive, or even inspiring.

In other news, I bleached my hair today. I felt like a change from the dark brown that I've been sporting for a few years and decided to go for light brown, think caramel. So I bleached it out today but even after 50 minutes of bleach, it's still quite dark and there's still plenty of red in it. I would describe the colour as auburn. The bulk of it is a very nice shade and I'd be happy to leave it but it's really patchy in some places and my roots are blonde due to the heat from my scalp speeding up the bleaching  process.

So yep - I have blonde roots and ginger hair. I'm just going to put my caramel brown dye over the top in the morning and pray for the best.

    this evening I'm going to change my haircolor from my dark brown to blonde or another light color since on sunday I'll do hair modelling... I'm so excited!

    btw, this many makes me think about pools

  5. The color looks great on you! Good luck with getting it all in 1 color :)

    And cute, happy mani!

  6. what an stunning shade, looking perfect on your complexion, but I don't think that it will look good on my complexion. also how have you made these small flowers nail art? I really like them.

  7. Thanks everyone. I think I'm going to keep the ginger hair for a while :)

    Tender Management - It's called Konad stamping. They're small metal disks with designs on them which you transfer on to your nails. It's VERY hard to explain! I recommend looking at some youtube videos to see how it's done :)


  8. what developer did you use? 10, 20, 30 or 40?

  9. Carrie. It came in a packet for 'medium to dark hair' so it didn't say which vol it was. Going by my experience with bleach and the results I got at the roots I would guess it was 40 :D
