All my nailpolishes 2014: turquoise is the colour

A small look back to last week. I was in the mood for turquoise and mint. First I painted my nails in the all time favourite mint apple candy from essie. Then I tried to upcycle the mani some days later by adding a zebra look to the tips. Generally a good idea but it probably needs some more practice plus the black Colorshow nailpolish doesn’t seem to be a good polish for stamping. And then I made a turquoise abstrakt collection of nails with my p2 pool side party nail polish in 020 turquoise sky, essie’s naughty nautical and urban turquoise by Maybelline. Enough colour for now. I think then next collection of colours will be neutrals.

All my nailpolishes 2014: I want spring, I want colour

Last week started with pretty warm weather and I felt very much like spring. So for the first time in months all I wanted was some bright shiny colour on my nails. And then, when shopping, I stumbled over a very unlikely pair of nailpolishes for me. I bought the bright pink and the bright orange and paired them straight away. So what you are seeing here is p2 Beauty Rebel Edition in 030 crazy orange and Catrice Feathers & Pearly Edition in  C03 Charlston’s Fame over a white base coat to make the colours pop even more. Actually I wanted to divide them with a fine white line which didn’t really work out for my left hand. So I made the line zigzagging on purpose. On the right hand the thin line worked surprisingly well. But I was told it looks a bit like dunkin donuts and thats true – a look I didn’t mean to wear… And to finish the week in brightness I went for a coral and used some of essie’s sunday funday to brighten up the rest of my week.

Dotted red nails or upcycling a mani

Last Friday I did my nails to last through a weekend at home and a party on Saturday night. 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. Now I’m not a red red person but I thought well why not. It did look good but it didn’t feel like me.Red-nails-beforeAnd when some days later 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 10 – Gradient

WHAT IS IT? I saw so many different types of gradient nails (e.g. just look at this intreging idea) just recently I found it very hard to decide which ones to do. But for my first ever gradient nails I was going to aim for something easy. So I went for fiery gradient nails, going from orange to fuchsia. They are actually a step two project from my orange nails as I painted this over the orange nail design. They were very hard to take a picture of. All the pictures I made where kind of blurry.Gradient-nails-orange-pink-2WHAT IS USED? Manhattans orange 33S is the based. Then I sponged on some Continue reading
