When I’m feeling down, my husband always calls it a ‘blue funk’. He says “honey, get out of your blue funk”. I don’t know if it’s an English thing, or an weird old fashioned saying his mom taught him, but usually when he says that, I giggle, and that’s all I need to get out of my ‘blue funk’.

Another funny thing I do when I’m feeling blue, is, that I polish my nails blue. I don’t know why but it’s a little habit I have. I absolutely love blue nails, so usually that cheers me up too! In one of my recent ‘blue funks’, I played with a new YSL nail polish: YSL Bleu.YSL Blue swatch
This is probably the nicest blue polish I have ever worked with. It’s the perfect royal blue. For these photos, I used YSL base/top coat as both the base and the topcoat for this look.two nail polishes
But seriously – how gorgeous is the blue? YSL Bleu will get anyone out of their blue funk!

After wearing YSL Bleu for a few days, I decided to complement it with Sally Hansen Miracle Gel #720 Mintage (a beautiful teal) and a white polish.more nail art hand and blue blue on blue
To achieve this look, I used a small nailart brush and polished the halfmoon with Mintage over YSL Bleu, and then I created the curved white lines on top.blue nail art
I think I’m officially out of my blue funk.

Until next time,
