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.

Well, the nail polish obviously didn’t know that and I ended up with serious tip wear on Saturday afternoon. And after taking the nail polish off my nails looked nothing like going nude and I decided to grap one of my mum’s nail polishes, essie’s really red to be precise.

This time I used French nail sticker to tape them off more neatly.neon-coral-french-nailsWHAT IS USED? Misslyn’s 420, a light taupe called 5th avenue is my base colour.

31 Days Nail Challenge – Day 13 – Animal print

WHAT IS IT? When I think of animal print leopard or zebra come into my mind. Now these are two patterns that won’t come onto my nails. So I thought and thought and when I bought the orange nail polish I knew what I wanted to do: Finding Nemo nails: clownfish print!Animal-print-finding-nemo-maniWHAT IS USED? Orange Manhattan nailpolish (33S) and then I struggled. Continue reading
