Well, this isn’t a regular post, nor is it a How I wore it post. It’s a
bit of a sarcastic How I ate it post. In Austria, most Beauty Bloggers also seem to have a great liking towards food – I like food too, but I have never understood fully how Cupcakes go hand in hand with lipsticks and mascaras. In any case I felt like diving deep into this swimming pool of clichés, and that’s how these pictures came to life. Don’t expect a step by step recipe though, I stand by my decision to buy macarons (and cupcakes!).
I found Peggy Sage polishes pretty much around the corner of our flat in Paris. I have only read about Peggy Sage on French blogs, but I had never tried them out. When I found a dark burgundy flakie polish, a silver holographic one and a neon pink one, I was convinced that I needed to try out the brand.
Obviously, I had to wear the pink neon one first. It is very sheer an jelly-like, so I ended up applying 3-4 coats. I think it was 4, but I can’t remember anymore. I’m sure that Neon Pink would work perfectly over white too, but I find it annoying that I have to apply white first, so I deal with the many coats.
It is really really difficult to get a neon pink to photograph well. It looks much too red in my pics. If you look at the picture above, the bottle shows the color quite well. E was fairly convinced that I would glow in the dark with this polish and my friend S was speechless for a second when she saw just how neon my nails were – I wore this manicure to Disneyland (follow me on instagram to know stuff like that: @goodlacknail), which I deemed appropriate.
In any case, back to the macarons: E and I tried a couple of different shops when we stumbled upon a super stylish shop called Weiss (62, rue de Seine, 75006 Paris), and we couldn’t resist buying some macarons. They didn’t only look dainty, they smelled great and the assortment was amazing. The chocolates and pralines looked tempting too, but we settled on a box of 9 macarons (~12€). We tried raspberry, mint chocolate, creme caramel, chocolate and many more.
My personal favourite is caramel au beurre salé. By far. If you want any tips on how to eat macarons the best, here they come: fresh,not too many and with a friend. Trust me, this is a sugar trip you’ll need a friend for.
