Musings about the jury

Being involved in a long trial (going into the 7th week next week) means that everyone falls into a bit of a rhythm. You see the same faces every day and become friendly with them. All except the jury. While their faces too become familiar and the rhythm becomes a part of the day too, I can't interact with them. In fact, that has caused me to, on more than one occasion, stop walking in order to not approach a juror. Yet in a strange way I feel connection with them also. I know what order they'll file into their seats, I recognise their styles and I know who is their phone monitor (the guy who is charged with collecting their mobiles and looking over the box). I even get a hint of their personalities by their responses and demeanor.

But anyways, the trial is on the home stretch, both sides have presented their closing submissions. At this stage, the judge is to give the jury detailed instructions about the relevant law and how to use evidence and so forth, but she's losing her voice, so we have the next two days off and an extended weekend. All in all, we've lost five days, so the initial 4-6 weeks estimate was actually quite accurate.

And of course, I need to have one that features my nails.

Glam Polish Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo

I gave my Notice of Intention to be Admitted to be a lawyer this week! The trial I am involved in is now in the media. Despite the nature of the crime, it is a great experience and the staff of the court in particular are great! I feel like I'm part of some greater every time I step into the building. I want to work there one day!

Anyway, onto nails! I had my eye on this one since I first saw swatches and it just had to be the first Glam Polish I tried from my first ever Glam nail mail!

Excuse the colour... kept forgetting to re-do in daylight.
Here are so quick snaps of it over Ulta3 Lilac Bloom. Match made in heaven I think!

Can't wait to try them all. It's like pokémon for nail polish addicts.

Powder Perfect Peeling Wallpaper swatch

This is Powder Perfect's Peeling Wallpaper. I'm not even sure if it's still available. I picked it up in Serenity Nails blog sale... Well, I guess it was technically a fb sale. The combination of wanting to get through new polishes (check out the hashtag #untriednov, I'll be trying to use that as often as I can over there on Instagram) and needing to avoid too much glitter means lots of cremes to show.

But, enough procrastination. I better just hit post and get back to my last little bit of homework FOREVER foreseeable future. Enjoy the photos, sorry about the quality.
