Valentine’s Day Manicure

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Today is Valentine’s Day, so I’ve made a tiny effort to use my stamping plates for once. I wanted to go with a pink base, so I applied three thin coats of Orly Basket Case. It’s a gorgeous hot pink creme that’s been standing in my Helmer way too long without being tried. I chose a heart design from the Konad plate M3, and I used China Glaze Millennium (a beautiful silver chrome) for the stamping. For top coat I used Poshe. I still haven’t really decided if I like it better than Seche Vite or not. My gut is still in love with Seche..

The hearts ended up too far to the edge of the nail, but I didn’t have time to redo it so it’ll have to do =) And since I don’t have access to any light during the weekdays I had to take the photos with flash.



How about a hunk for Valentine’s Day? Can you say no to this guy’s invite?


Aaah I wanna go rub his belly now!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

China Glaze – Lorelei’s Tiara

Saturday, February 9th, 2013

How about a New Year’s Eve manicure over a month later? I wore the gorgeous Lorelei’s Tiara which I just got a few months back. It’s from China Glaze’s Eye Candy collection and so far this is the only one I have from that collection. It’s a silver glitter with bigger glitter in a gorgeous blue/turquoise color.

This is two coats on top of Nails Inc Cambridge Terrace, which is a silver shimmer. I then needed two coats of Seche Vite to make it smoother.




I wore this for almost two weeks, it was hard to let it go!

Holo Friday with China Glaze Let’s Do It In 3D

Friday, January 6th, 2012

The sun was out today, so it was perfect for showing off this beauty from the China Glaze Kaleidoscope collection, the silvery grey holographic Let’s Do It In 3D. I applied four coats and it dried quickly as most holos do. I think this one will become one of my favorite scattered holos, it’s just perfect!

And now, some pic spam:

I also took a photo inside to show what it looks like without the rainbow  colors:

I hope to get my hands on a few more polishes from this collection, I love the ones I have so far!

Sterling Silver Gradient

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

I’ve been tempted to try out gradients for a while, so while I had L.A. Girl Graphite on, I got the idea to try making a gradient with Sterling Silver from the same collection. The tool I used was just an ordinary yellow dish sponge, which I cut out a small triangle from. I put some of the polish on a piece of paper, and then I dabbed the sponge in that and onto the tips of my nails until I was satisfied with the look. Maybe it’s not much of a gradient, but I think it’s a pretty cool effect.

I hadn’t done any cleanup yet when I took these photos, so there’s some polish left on my fingers.

I only included this photo because of the gorgeous guy in the background (Lakrits)!

OMG, Happy New Year!

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

I had some idea that I would blog like crazy during my Christmas holidays, but I ended up playing the 10 day trial of World of Warcraft instead… oops! Anyway, here’s a late post to show my nails at New Year’s Eve. My choice fell on the silver holographic OMG, I love it! I didn’t use any base or top coat, and this is three layers.

China Glaze OMG

The sun was nice to shine upon little Sweden for once!

Sorry for the mess on my fingers, I hadn’t done a cleanup yet.

Ah, look at all those pretty colors!

I wish you all a wonderful 2011! I’m still new to the blogging world, but I hope to get a little more active this year, and maybe a little giveaway will pop up along the way as well.. so stay tuned =)

Millennium cow nails

Sunday, August 15th, 2010

This is an altered design from what I’ve had once in a while before, cow nails, but this time with silver as a base. For this I’ve used China Glaze Millennium, and the cow spots are made with a toothpick and Nyx Ink Nail art in black. I tried using the brush first but I failed quite miserably. Sorry for the bad photos and the tip wear, but I hope you can get a sense of it anyway.
