I have two manicures all the way from November that I never posted here. Those have been seen on my social media but not on my blog so today I’ll show first one of the two.
I did these nails for Finnish beauty bloggers advent calendar but I wanted to show them on this side too. It’s been so rainy, muddy and dark here in Finland lately I haven’t really felt like doing Holiday nails but I think you’ll see a few more of these during the next couple of weeks.
I decided to recreate a manicure I did last summer. This is a very simple white and blue gradient with gold glitter. Dreamy and delicate looking with some lovely sparkle from gold holo glitter. (more…)
Hello lovelies! Lately I haven’t been blogging as much as I’d like to due to (as some of you already know) me being pregnant. I’m simply just too tired and exhausted with two young kids and this beached whale body of mine to get anything done. Now the weather also got a lot warmer here in Finland so my fingers are super swollen and not really swatch photo material at the moment.
I’m due in early September and I’ll try and keep posting somewhat regularly till then. My plan was to get some nail art done for some scheduled posts but we will see about that LOL I might need some guest posters too to help me keep my blog alive. So other than being huge and super tired all the time everything is ok :) I have a lot of polishes to show you and some cool nail art ideas too. I hope I can find the time and energy to get something done soon enough.
Here’s a manicure I did before my fingers started swelling up. The base is Wet n Wild Break The Ice (white shimmer), the light blue gradient is done with Dollish Polish Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Glitter (CesarsShop exclusive that is only available in Finland) and the gold glitter is F.U.N. Lacquer Gold Mark. Base coat was Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu! and everything is topped off with HK girl top coat. This looked much better inside my head, as usual, but I’ll post it anyways :D
Today my fingers actually look reasonable so as soon as I hit the Publish button I’ll go and take photos of my nail growing progress. At least that is going well :D
***Wet n Wild Break The Ice was purchased by me, Dollish Polish Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Glitter, F.U.N. Lacquer Gold Mark, Stuck On Blu! and HK Girl were sent to me for free. I don’t benefit from clicking any of the links on this post.
Since yesterday’s heart manicure might have scarred me for life my Valentine’s Day nails don’t have hearts on them ;) Instead I decided to use F.U.N. Lacquer Secret Admirer thermal polish as a base for some nail art. I painted some flowers using white and dark pink Oumaxi acrylic paints and added some beautiful glitter, F.U.N. Lacquer Gold Mark from Christmas 2013 collection. I topped it all with HK Girl top coat.
I LOVE how this thermal looks as a base for nail art. I took a photo of a normal room temperature nails and another one with cold tips. My hand painting skills are far from perfect and I need a lot of practice but the beautiful combination of the thermal and gold glitter makes this manicure work great.
***Secret Admirer and Oumaxi acrylic paints were purchased by me. Gold Mark was sent for review and HK Girl was gifted to me. I don’t benefit from clicking any of the links on this post.
