dot, dot, dot, dots

Eastern eggs' print on my nails...and more dots on my sweater

Reaches those horizon lines
You know not to leave us

Reaches those horizon lines
You know not to leave us

promise is a deal

I wrote that I'll make a review about Foster The People's it is!

I have to confess that I was a bit afraid about what this second album could be, because I just adore their first one! But it's been a month I only listen to it (+ Torches + new songs from The Black Keys...) and don't cannot stop.

So then? Some songs (like 'Pseudologia Fantastica' or 'The Truth') sound like nothing else, but I also appreciate them and for me, they perfectly knew how to stay true to their style while evolving. Music still has this amazing (Helena)beat and joy and energy which make me dance!
Besides that, lyrics improved too, being more adult and serious ('Are you what you wanna be?' and 'Ask yourself' made me think about life, consumerism and future a lot...!)

Plus, I find Mark Pontius (drums) is as cute as a surfer....

“If you want more and you'll get there.
 Throw a quarter in the well.
 Well, it's okay, you're fine, ambition's not a crime.
And you say that dreamers always get what they desire.
 Well I've found, the more I want the less I've got.
 Is this the life you've been waiting for.
 Or are you hoping that you'll be where you want with a little more?
 Well ask yourself…”                                                               > Foster The People

second touch of pink(s)

pink & violet maritime manicure for this beginning of spring!

oh oh oh
All the way, all the way
I’ll go anywhere you go
All the way…
So long...."          > The Black Keys

touch of (pale) pink

I'm not fond of French manicure, but this one worked perfectly to me!!

“There's sugar on your soul,
 You're like no one I know,
 You're the life of another world.
You swallow me whole,
 With just a mumbled hello,
And it breaks my heart to love you, it breaks my heart to love you…”       > Editors

Using the same technique as presented in my previous post, this is my "baroque" nails...

“Now I'm staring at the Moon
 Wondering why the bottom fell out
 I've been searching for answers
 And there's questions I've found…”            > Foster The People
