A Midsummer Night’s Skittle

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

I had big plans for my nails for Midsummer back in June, unfortunately I had a nasty cold so I had to stay home and celebrate on my own, but at least I had a fun manicure to look at =)

I decided to do a Skittles manicure with colors that more or less matched the dress I was supposed to wear.

I decided to do the colors in the reverse order on my right hand.

The polishes L-R: Lovie No. 93, H&M Bella’s Choice, KleanColor Mango, China Glaze Gaga For Green, China Glaze Dance Baby

I think I applied about three coats of each polish, Mango needed four to get even.

And here’s a shot with the dress:

I’m all for happy colors now!

H&M Coral

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

I bought one of the Spring Nails mini sets from H&M a few months back, and the polish that interested me the most was Coral. I’ve been slightly obsessed by that color this season, both in polish, makeup and clothes. And I’m really glad I got this one, because it’s quite beautiful. It’s a light coral shade with golden shimmer. To be honest I don’t really remember how many coats I did, but probably three as I usually do, and I don’t think I had any problems with the formula.

I love the golden shimmer in this!

Oh Fashionista!

Monday, September 6th, 2010

Fashionista from H&M is one of my favorite purple polishes at the moment, so I decided to put that on. But it had gone a little thick and I totally messed up my nails. What to do? Well, why not save it with some flakies! Said and done, I chose Nfu Oh #50 which is a purple based jelly with turqoise flakes in it. It’s fairly easy to get an even coverage of the flakes. A couple of them ended up over the edge of the nails, but you can just cut them off.

Isn’t it just lovely?

After I took these photos it was cleaning time, and as you all know this involves a big risk of nails flying..

.. And I killed my thumb nail. So from here on my nails will look a little shorter, as I like to keep them even in length.
