Nail Diaries: A S’well Birch Look

This was meant to go up for Earth Day, but alas, my typically dormant social life made a brief appearance in celebration of my finally finishing my degree last week (woohoo).  So let’s just say this was intended for Earth Month (as I type furiously in an attempt to publish this before April ends in an hour…whoops.)

Initially the plan was to drone on about how important it is that we stop using plastic bottles and stick to Earth-friendly reusable bottles, but I’m aiming for a non-patronizing post, here.  So we’ll keep things simple and to the point: I got myself a new, spiffy water bottle.  And yes, it’s a S’well water bottle.  I know S’well bottles seem to have become the latest fad, but they really are quite functional.  They work magic when it comes to holding temperature (hot or cold), they’re leak-proof, and they’re pretty (not that aesthetics have anything to do with function…but let’s overlook that).  So pretty, in fact, that birch-like patterned one inspired this nail design:

The polishes:

  • Sally Hansen‘s Pardon My Garden (530)
  • Sonia Kashuk‘s Tauped (16)
  • Illamasqua‘s DWS
  • Essie‘s blanc

And a close-up in much better lighting:

Stay hydrated and be kind to the planet, people. Always.  Bonus points if you can do it in style with a pretty bottle!

’til next time,

Meg ❤
