Punctuation Day manicure – Quote Unquote by Gloss N Sparkle

Today at work – I love my job btw – I got wind of this being National Punctuation Day! That’s national for the US, not for Sweden or Egypt or anywhere else, just FYI. But nonetheless – the idea of any kind of Punctuation Day makes me purr out loud. English is my third language and I’m sure I make loads of mistakes both regarding punctuation and otherwise, but I love any kind of initiative that shines a light on lingual issues, regardless of which language. Wow, I’m such a nerd. Yes, I do wear glasses. Big round Harry Potter frames – check.

I had to sneak this day onto the blog somehow and suddenly remembered I have the perfect untried candidate for an afternoon manicure – Gloss N Sparkle Quote Unquote! Isn’t it just perfectly named for wearing today?

Quote Unquote is a glitter topper with black & white, teal, red/orange and neon yellow matte glitter. I think this could build up to opacity in maybe three coats. This was one and a half, dabbed onto thermal polish Happy/Earthy from Claire’s.

I got Happy/Earthy through a swap ages ago and think it’s discontinued. Quote Unquote is bought from Llarowe, but right now I can’t find it there. However the Etsy shop of Gloss N Sparkle carries it, but only ships to Australia.

Now, let me know – did I choose an appropriate polish for National Punctuation Day? And is this blog post well punctuated? Oh and hey, this blog post is green, and it’s Wednesday… get it? It’s Green Wednesday again over at Karin‘s blog! Go be green.

These products were purchased with my own funds.

    • Först kunde inte bestämma mig för ljust eller mörkt grönt som undisar till glittret – men varför välja när man kan ha båda! :D Älskar också H/E.. älskar alla thermolack. Alla :)

  1. Åh, så snyggt!
    Jag älskar lingvistik och hur meningar får olika betydelse beroende på var du sätter punkter, kommatecken och liknande. Det är så himla roligt! Nu önskar jag att jag vetat om att det var National Punctuation Day i USA, då hade jag gjort någon kul nail art på temat tror jag. :)

    • Visst är sånt kul!!? En sån liten fnutt kan göra sån enorm skillnad..

      En favorit:
      Charles walked and talked.
      Half an hour after his head was cut off.

      Hade gärna sett din punktuationsnailart!

  3. Jag har den där Claires också, jätteskojjig på lååååånga naglar (som jag inte har) men också rolig om d e kallt ute. Jättefin manikyr, jag gillar verkligen glittret!!

    • Å vad jag önskar att jag kunde odla riktigt långa naglar! Får hålla mig tills det blir riktigt kallt ute istället.. snart så. Har ni Claire´s därborta, vet du om detta fortfarande finns att köpa?

Thanks for sharing your thoughts (och hej alla modersmålstalare) <3
