Natural manicure for a change


After all the colorful manis I felt like just having natural looking nails. I used a Finnish brand Lumene’s nail polish. Lumene Natural Code nail polish shade 03 Be Happy is just perfect for natural manicure.

Be Happy is milky, very sheer polish that gives your nails natural look. It lightens and smooth your nail color just a bit. This one is my go-to polish when I want natural but well maintained looking nails.

In this mani I used: OPI NNS x2, Be Happy x2 and Seche Vite.

After today I think I’ll be ready for more color on my nails :D


Lumene Natural Code – 9 Live It Up


This was my New Years mani, a mini nail polish from a Finnish brand Lumene Natural Code shade 9 Live It Up. Beautiful turquoise-light blue polish with a lot of silver micro-glitter. Perfect shade for a cold and sunny winter day. I think I’m gonna wear this a few more times this winter, such a nice and fresh color.

Live It Up is quite sheer and even after three coats I still had a visible nail line. Application was pretty good and it dried fast. Removal was a bit slow cos of the micro-glitter but not nearly as bad as glitter polishes usually are. In this mani I used: OPI Nail Envy Soft & Thin x1, Live It Up x3 and Seche Vite on top.

Since this is a Finnish brand I have no idea if you can buy this outside of Finland.
