Mani: Rimmel Port-A-Loo Blue + #Truthbombs Galore




Hi guys! Today I'll be dropping #truthbombs left, right and centre. You will know each one is a truth bomb by the handy #truthbomb hashtag immediately following each nugget of truth. Firstly, I am experiencing exactly zero motivation to blog lately (#truthbomb). You may have noticed posts have been a tad on the light side, and that's why. I don't know where my desire has gone or when it will return. I'm definitely not throwing in the towel though! We've also just started two weeks of school holidays here in SA, so there will be less time to blog, even if the desire strikes.

I picked this Mani post to write because it's the quickest thing I can blog about and I was starting to feel guilty about not blogging enough and honestly just wanted to 'get a post up' (#truthbomb). I picked this particular shade of polish because I knew I already had a few photos I'd taken recently of when I'd painted my nails with it but couldn't be stuffed blogging it. (#truthbomb). So basically I found some photos I could use of this shade from a few weeks ago, then painted my nails with it afterwards to match (#truthbomb). I did take a few new photos of my mani though, to add to the post.





Now hold on to your knickers, because I'm about to blow your mind with the biggest #truthbomb of all! Not everything is perfect when it comes to beauty blogging. Insane, right? Everything looks perfect on Instagram with the perfect angle, the clear-cut focus, the gorgeous colour, the perfect highlight, the perfect everything. Well those photos have usually been edited to within an inch of their four-squared lives. Case in point: I totally stuffed up and smudged one of my nails during this mani (#truthbomb). And normally I wouldn't show the stuff-up, but you know what? Fuck it. Let's keep it real, this shit happens. You just normally don't see it. I now wish I'd gone 100% rogue and not even edited these photos so you could see what they look like in real life, but I'm a creature of habit and I'd already edited them before I decided how truthbomby I'd get. Besides, I need something perfect to post on Instagram, right?

Products Used:
Sally Hansen Diamond Shine (two coats, 1 base + 1 top)
Rimmel Port-A-Loo Blue from the Rita Ora collection (1 coat)




Stuffed up my pinky nail!

  2. This colour is right up my alley & I'm glad I'm not the only one who messes up their nails!

    My truthbomb is in the same boat as yours, i.e. being un-motivated to blog. I have no desire to whatsoever atm & I'm really unsure if it'll ever return tbh; so I'm giving myself some time to figure things out.

    1. I'm glad you're having a break to figure things out Shell. I find it always helps to take a step back and do non-related things for a while. Hopefully we both get back into the blogging spirit! :)

  6. I love this #truthbomb post! Bloggers need to write more real posts like this in my opinion! It makes others feel better about themselves and what's going on in their own lives too!

    I love this port-a-loo blue colour by the way but hate the name! Port-a-loos are always so revolting to go to at events and festivals!

  9. I love this style of writing, Di! To be honest I didn’t even notice the smudged nail, and I still can’t find it ��

    I like the colour, but the name is soo odd to me!

  12. Living for the truth bombs! Totally feeling you on the lack of motivation to blog. It kind of hit me the other week when I couldn't think of anything to write about and then I was like...why am I even bothering? That was a bit of a low point but I'm trying to pick up steam and just write posts I genuinely want to :) Love that colour too!

    1. Thanks Tasha! It's heartening to read that other bloggers are going through the same thing. I think writing content you're genuinely interested in is definitely the way to go - but I often think why am I even bothering as well.

  13. This post made me giggle! Love those truth bombs and that gorgeous blue shade. I can’t get enough of blue and yellow nail colours and yet I don’t own a single one.

  19. I love this colour! I am the worst at painting my nails but I love when they're bright (or black, depending on the day) and fun.
    And I hear you on the motivation. I have no motivation for anything right now. Ugh.

    1. I still have no motivation! Let's hope we find some somewhere!

  20. Yes, I did indeed have to hold onto my knickers! Joking, honestly Di, if you think you screwed up your nails, gosh... I'm AWFUL at painting mine! On the plus side, the colour is unreal - I feel like it would compliment a lot of different skintones beautifully. x
