Tuesday nights, great vintage manicures and parties

Yesterday afternoon I caught the train into the city for a fun evening.

Somehow I managed to not get one outfit picture, apart from this train window reflection..! I PROMISE to do better from now on!

First up: I went to the gorgeously luxurious Miss Fox and got my nails done. My nails are literally in the worst state of my life, crumbling off the ends of my fingers like ash from a dying cigarette. I had a vintage manicure with moons done. I can see why people like having nude colours on their nails; I've never had it before but it makes your hands look like dolls'. I then had a pretty coral added – and the moons were done freehand! I am SO impressed. I loved the red and black ladybird nails, too.

I looked around a bit. I love all the pretty tulle and the period features of the old building.

Ta da! How good do they look! They will be like armour for my nails, so they can start to grow back stronger. I love them, they're so shiny!

Then I headed off to the Wittner party in the block arcade. I really do love that building. It makes Melbourne feel quite special. Wittner had just done two parades earlier in the day as part of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week and they looked amazing, so everyone was very happy for them.

What sweetly beautiful nails! Would you believe it, in 28 years of life, I've never once had a professional manicure? I'm sure it will happen one day, but in the meantime I'll keep painting my tips (and toes) at home (though I don't have the skills to freehand anywhere near that well!).

Jessica Cangiano: haha I totally understand, this was my third ever (!!!) at the age of 31! And the freehanding skills still blow me away. :)

Eccentric Owl: it feels really nice, seriously! x
