Maybelline Super Stay Uptown Blue 20


 

Here you see Maybelline Forever Strong Super Stay Gel Nail Color 7 Days in the color Uptown Blue – I believe this is the complete name of this polish. Talking about a mouthfull! Uptown Blue is a pretty baby blue that compliments the sun tanned skin of my hands. Bring it on, summer! I didn’t have any other baby blue hues in my stash yet so this was a very welcome addition. This polish has a creamy finish, no shimmers or sparkles. The brush is quite big and it reminds me of those of Sally Hansen.

To help you out, I’ve made up a list of 33 ideas to get those creative juices flowing again.

1. Write about a personal experience. It doesn’t have to be something ground breaking, perhaps humour is your thing. Or maybe it was something small that somehow taught you something valuable.

2. A bit more to the point: a trip you recently made. A visit to the ZOO, a city you explored, a hike you went on.
