Back To School Outfits: H&M Edition

The summer has nearly ended and back to school season has started. Above are some outfits I've put together using H&M items only. I'm going to uni, so that was my target, but they can of course also be used for different schools and occasions. Click on the tiny pictures to go to the H&M website.
The images direct you to the British H&M, but all you need to do is change the gb in the url to the letters of your country.

Hope you like these outfits. I'm having a hard time not to go and buy every single item in this blogpost.
Which outfit is your favourite? Also let me know if you want me to do more back to school outfits for different shops.

My Favourite Summer Nail Polish: Bourjois So Laque Glossy 07 Coton Sur Ton

I haven't been able to put a lot of time in my blog lately, for which I'm sorry.  Today I really missed this baby of mine and wanted to give it some love, attention and affection, which means: writing a new post!
I still don't have much time on my hands, so I decided to keep it quick and simple today, by showing you my favourite summer nail polish.

I'm much more of a autumn and winter person when it comes to the colours on my nails, and stick to dark colours only. But since my favourite dark blues, purples, reds and greens aren't really suitable for the nice weather we're having this summer in the Netherlands *cough cough* I decided to change things up.

I've been rummaging through my nail polish collection and found this little gem hiding away somewhere in the corner of my cupboard. It's the Bourjois So Laque Glossy in 07 Coton Sur Ton. Ohhh French, get's me every time. J'adore la langue Française. I totally didn't use google translate for that.

As you can see this is a gorgeous nude nail polish. It is quite sheer and let's your natural nail colour shine through giving you some kind of French Manicure effect. Again French... I'm hooked.

This nail polish is perfect for girls like me who don't want to, or feel like they are unable to rock bright colours on their nails in summer, but still want their nails to look summerish?, summery?
For my nails I used two coats, which is all right. But if you want your nails to look opaque I suggest looking for a different nail polish, because you need about four coats for that.
The consistency is quite runny which makes this nail polish a bit tricky to apply, but it's still doable.

On the bottle it says this nail polish will last 10 days. I think 10 days is a bit exaggerated, but 7 is realistic. Mine lasted 5 days, but do note I'm currently moving, which means my nails are being ruined by building furniture and carrying heavy boxes.

It takes about 15 to 20 minutes for this nail polish to completely dry, which is a bit long for my liking, but I love the outcome so much I don't mind.

Overall, the formula of this nail polish could need some improvement, but once it's on every struggle is forgotten, because your nails look so pretty.

This nail polish is perfect for girls who's nail are a bit longer. It would also look gorgeous with a tan, but because it's such a light colour, this nail polish will suit paler skin as well, and it even will make it look a bit more tanned.

Tell me in the comments below what your favourite nail polish is for summer, because I would like to add some more summer nail polishes to my collection, since currently, this is the only one.. oops.
