You Know You're Really an Eight Year Old When...

... You can't quite decide on a colour for your nails, so sod it, you'll just use five. Or maybe it's just me that does that? You know, you're trying to decide on which shade of purple sums up how you feel about the world this week, and so, you lay them all out - for careful consideration. Then, it hits like lightening, the epiphany - why pick one? What's greater than choosing one awesome purple nail polish? USING FIVE TOTALLY AWESOME NAIL POLISHES. Duh, your brain says, and you triumphantly paint away, and admire them... until you step outside the next morning and just wonder what the penguin happened here?!?

If you fancy regressing to your childhood and recreating this chic and understated look, the colours used are: 

Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in  Plum
Barry M Silk Nail Paint in Heather
Models Own Nail Polish in Pukka Purple
Revlon Top Speed Nail Polish in Grape
Ciate Paint Pot in Talent Scout

But you know what, I'm not ashamed to say I actually enjoyed painting my nails like this - and have already done a blue version on my toes! Heck, I have so many polishes, this is about the only way to get through them!!
