bratislava and big apple red

25 May

last weekend i was in bratislava visiting my best friend.  we were so lucky with the weather, it was gorgeous!

the main reason i went is the nightlife. not for nothing bratislava is dubbed partyslava– the alcohol and entrances are so cheap! the city is crawling with international people (many big international companies have their european hq in slovakia), but everywhere you go you mainly hear british english. thanks to ryanair and their airfares, bratislava is a super popular place for bachelor/ette parties (as the brits call them: stag and hen nights).

we went to about 4 places on friday night, and ended up at trafo, a fun and crazy club right in the city center. we were home around 4 in the morning, and when we woke up at 1 pm on saturday, we were both nursing a slight hangover. my bff suggested we go chill in the sun, and drink some lemonade (very popular) at leblon, a brazilian churrascaria right by the river. i had lemonade joe, a deliciously refreshing lemonade with cucumber slices, elderflower syrup, limes and soda.

we then walked around town, and ended up strolling by the blue church– or as we call it, the disney church:

by sunday our nails were a mess, so we went to get them done. i fell in love with opi big apple red! such a striking red shade with fuchsia undertones- the perfect red for summer! needless to say, i wanted to get it. when i got back to vienna i looked online for it, and because i was curious about the much acclaimed seche vite i was browsing for that too. i stumbled upon micky nail studio, a new store in vienna that also has an online shop. what makes micky nail studio special is that not only do they carry most collections of opi, they also stock essie, china glaze, seche vite, orly and zoya! if that wasn’t enough, opi and essie are cheaper there than anywhere else i’ve seen. before i knew it, my fingers started clicking, and i checked out a basket of 5 nailpolishes. it happens, right? when the haul arrives, you’ll know it :)
