One more christmas mani

After my christmas ornament mani I did one with little white christmas trees on red nails. But to be honest, I wasn’t satisfied. The trees on the left hand looked ok but not great and on the right hand I stopped painting trees after the first turned out to be, well, lets not talk about it. This week Idecide to keep my mani low key. I just wanted pine green nails. But the polish seems to be rather bad because even with a topcoat I had tipwear already this morning. And because I needed concealer I was in the make area at my local drug storeGreen-christmas-nails-1meaning I had to stop and check on nail polishes as I usually do.

Inspired by a blog-Nails: lots of work, lots of beauty

I was once again inspired by a fellow bloggers mani and had to recreate it. This time the mani inspiration came from Jule from lackfein.

31 Days Nail Challenge – Day 22 – Inspired by a song

WHAT IS IT? This is my summer song manicure. It is my holiday manicure. It is all about summer and heat. So what is the song: I was think about “36 Grad” a great summer song by 2Raumwohnung. It says:

“36 Grad und es wird noch heißer,

mach den Beat nie wieder leiser.

36 Grad kein Ventilator,

das Leben kommt mir garnicht hart vor.”

this translate into (and it sounds better in German as then the words rhyme):

“36 degrees and it’s getting hotter.

Don’t you ever turn the music down.

36 degrees and no fan.

Life doesn’t seem hard at all”

And this is exactly what I need for my holidays even though you’ll get to see it on the day I come back.inspired-by-a-songWHAT IS USED? I did Ruffian naills with essie’s sunday funday from this year’s summer collection, accentuated with more essie nail polishes: Continue reading
