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. Now I promised myself Continue reading

Army glitter nails

I bought about one nailpolish  per week in the last months… and I should definitively stop. I store them on two shelfs and don’t have space for more and even if I decide to give some away it’s still too much. That said I bought a new one on Wednesday. It is from the new Limited Edition by essence called Metal Glam and is a gold topper. Now I do have a golden glitter top coat but this one looks like gold foil in clear polish. And it was only about 2€… Army-green-glitter-nailsI had to try it out straight away and prolonged my lunch break a little by taking Continue reading

31 Days Nail Challenge – Day 26 – Inspired by a pattern

WHAT IS IT? I really wanted to use this top coat with the big green, blue and black hexagons and thought well this is the best to create a pattern with it, you just have to place all hexagons seperately. And as my rainbow toe nails where ready to be renewed I did this on my toes.inspired-by-a-pattern-maniWHAT IS USED? I used the new 890 lost in paradise by p2 as a base. The picture Continue reading

31 Days Nail Challenge – Day 9 – Rainbow

WHAT IS IT? Rainbow nails in all shades of the rainbow but not in its order. I started painting my nails back when I was about 14 and loved it. Normal cosmetic brands back then only just started to have other colours than red and pink and maybe creamy beige. It took me a while back then to get all bright colours of the rainbow. I think is a great way to do toe nails in summer and great to show of the amount of colours you have.rainbow-pediWHAT IS USED? I used a bit of everything, going from left to right: Continue reading
