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.
One more nail post for this week and this time it’s a summer-y manicure with coral and gold polishes. I really like this combination. I love coral shades and gold just goes so well with these KIKO shades.
It’s spring and I feel the need to use one bright polish after another. This time I chose China Glaze Daisy Know My Name? from the Summer 2015 Electric Nights collection.
This is a very bright neon yellow with green undertones. Very highlighter yellow and in your face in sunlight. Love it! (more…)
Today I have another lovely Delush Polish shade for you. This is Orchid Situation from 2014 Essence of Summer Collection. This polish is discontinued but is still available on Delush Polish store for a discounted price.
I absolutely love this color! The shade of purple goes really well with my skin tone and the green/turquoise shimmer makes this polish very unique.
Formula on this was excellent. Very easy to apply and opaque with two coats, though longer nails might need three. Dry time was super fast and no chipping in three days. Removal was also easy and there was no staining.
For this manicure I used a coat of Essie Nourish Me, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of Orchid Situation and HK Girl top coat. The square studs are from Born Pretty Store.
***Orchid Situation was purchased by me. Studs were sent for review. I don’t benefit from clicking the links on this post in any way.
Today’s Polishers Inc. theme was Safe and Sound aka my comfort zone manicure. For me the bright red polish is always a safe choice. I love red nails and red looks great with my skin tone. I also love to use studs and rhinestones. They are so quick and easy to use and nearly impossible to mess up.
For this manicure I used a coat of Essie Nourish Me, a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of Delush Polish Glam Squad and HK Girl top coat. I also used different sized clear rhinestones plus black and silver studs for these nails.

It’s December! I love this time of the year :) So now it’s also time for the first Holiday theme manicure!
For this manicure I used Sally Hansen Nail Rehab and Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu! as my base coats.
For all the nails I used Dollish Polish Redrum, not so Chrismas-sy themed holo polish from the Halloween collection. Unfortunately this is no longer available so you’ll have to wait till next year to see if it makes a return for Halloween then. This was too very easy coats. Dry time was fast and no chipping in three days when I wore this.
For the ring finger I used Chaos & Crocodiles Fireside Nights to get some sparkle.
At last I added some red and gold studs and finished the manicure with HK Girl top coat.

I recently placed my first Cadillacquer order and here’s the first one of the two polishes I bought, The Rest Is Silence from the Sons of Anarchy Collection. I know I just did a “Matching Nails & Makeup” post but the opportunity to use turquoise on my makeup was too good to pass so here goes another makeup post :D
The Rest Is Silence is a GORGEOUS light turquoise polish with a subtle holo effect and pink shimmer. I can’t even… this polish is so so stunning!
Formula was excellent. Two easy coats for an opaque result. Dry time was normal and removal was easy. No staining the nails and no chipping during the three days I wore this manicure. This Cadillacquer beauty lived up to it’s good reputation and my first experience with this brand was a really positive one.
For this manicure I used a coat of Sally Hansen Nail Rehab and a coat of Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu!, two coats of The Rest Is Silence and HK Girl top coat. For the ring finger nails I placed some studs (no longer available or at least I couldn’t find a link for you. I bought those sometime last year), waterdrops and rhinestones. All of them are from Born Pretty Store and you can use the code NZL91 for -10% off your order.
Yep, I told you, stunning polish!
And then on to the makeup look. I didn’t want to go all crazy with the turquoise so I decided to just use it on my lower lid and leave the upper lid neutral with big lashes.
For this look I used:
UDPP for a base
Urban Decay Burnout, Buzz and Strange (Naked 3 palette)
GOSH Waterproof Eye Liner Pencil in Cool Mint
Urban Decay Deep End (Fun palette)
Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Lumi
I really liked how this looked. Neutral enough for every day use but still had enough color to make it look fun and fresh :) This is a very quick and easy look to create and you can use pretty much any color on your lower lid as long as it looks good on you.

For this manicure I used two Jindie Nails polishes Phone, Keys, Polish, Check! and Frank’s Ole Lady. Since they were both so gorgeous I couldn’t decide which one to use first so I used both. I have a review and better swatch photos of Phone, Keys, Polish, Check! coming up later on :)
For this manicure I used Sally Hansen Nail Rehab treatment and Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu! base coat on all the nails. Phone, Keys, Polish, Check! on my index, middle and pinky nail. Then I used Frank’s Ole Lady for thumb and ring finger nails. Stamping was done with Konad silver stamping polish and Konad M63 plate. I finished the manicure with HK Girl top coat.
If you want Frank’s Ole Lady I suggest you act FAST. Right now, at this moment there’s only 3 left on the store and it’s not coming back!
You can buy Jindie Nails polishes from JindieNails.com or from authorized distributors. You can find the latest news, releases and restock info from their FB and IG.

This manicure is quick and simple but I really liked it.
The base color is Mavala Espresso from their Fall 2014 Sublime collection. Espresso has an excellent formula. It applies very smoothly and evenly and is opaque with two coats. Dry time was quick and it didn’t stain my nails or cuticles when removed.
For this manicure I used a coat of Essie Fill The Gap and Glisten & Glow Stuck On Blu! base coats, two coats of Espresso and HK Girl top coat. Stamping was done with OPI Love.Music.Angel.Baby velvet matte polish and Born Pretty Store stamping plate (you can use the code NZL91 for -10% off).
