Pulse

Rather late than never right? This is my shout out to the world for raising breastcancer awareness. I think we all have someone in our family or close to us that has suffered or is suffering from breastcancer. Actually, worldwide breast cancer comprises 10.4% of all cancer incidence among women, making it the most common type of non-skin cancer in women and the fifth most common cause of cancer death. In 2004, breast cancer caused 519,000 deaths worldwide.. (source: wikipedia)

I chose to make a pro-life mani with this pink blingy pulse design! Drawing the lines was a pita since I still don’t have proper nailart pencils. Does anyone have a recommendation for me perhaps? Turns out Ebay isn’t always your best friend, hihi. The ring was from the same store as the ring I showed before, because this is sterling silver it was 14,95 EUR. Still cheap right?! <3

Thnx so much for stopping by!

Halloween nails pt 4: Mummies

Hi again!

This Halloween theme is driving me nuts,in the good way! So many ideas and so little time, ugh. This must be the easiest mani ever!! Everyone can do this and I encourage you to do so and see for yourself. OPI Alpine Snow is a great bright white which applies very well. I used two coats and it was complete even and opaque, great. I combined the Konad Special polish in black with the S6 imageplate from Konad. I absolutely love this plate. It has celtic-like design which I adore! With the tip of my black striper (or just use a pen/toothpick/dottingtool) I created the eyes. And guess what.. that’s all!!!

Watch it, you’re being watched!!! =)

Edit: the awesome Egyptian brushes for Photoshop were downloaded from here!

Halloween nails pt 3: Frankensteins

GREEN GOODNESS!

That’s one way of describing these Frankensteins..! This is the third design I’m making for Halloween 2010. I was inspired by a YouTube movie which I just couldn’t resist. The green/lime base I used is the new Essence Colour & Go Lime Up! I only needed one coat for this polish to be opaque and the drying time was quite fast. I used a black striper for the hair, lips and stitches. The eyes were made with a dottingtool dipped in Konad Special White. Check it out!

Excuse the un-polished thumb! This was before I finished both hands. My ritual is to always show my ‘to-be-posted’ mani’s to a good friend first & he tells me his honest opinion. Luckily for me, he liked it haha. I’m wondering if you show your creations to someone close to you as well before posting it on the interwebs! Let me know, I’m curious :)

Nighty!

Halloween nails pt 2: Dark butterflies

Hi!

I couldn’t resist making the second mani in my Halloween series already. Did I mention how much I love this theme? No? I LOVE IT! AAAAAH! This design is black purple and it has butterflies It’s also very easy to create!

I used Catrice Back to Black as black base. This black is amazingly opaque but I still used two coats to be sure. On top I put some thin fimo flowers from Ebay. The white cross is from BM imageplate number 13. This plate also has bats, a spider, a witch and a spiderweb which I used in my Halloween nails pt 1. The rhinestones are from Ebay as well.

Thnx for stopping by and take care, dark ones!

Halloween nails pt 1: Spiderweb

O’hai!

A lot has happened since my last post. I’ve been to paris for a few days to get away from this aweful 9-5 mentality here. I didn’t have any vacation yet so this was my few days of relaxation, or so I had hoped! We walked for hours and hours and I think we saw every inch of Paris. The busride of 8 hours was terrible with a non-english speaking busdriver who let us take a 15 minute break in that whole drive, wrong dangerous and not good for your blatter cause seriously.. the smell that was coming from the bustoilet was the most aweful one I’ve ever smelled. If I had gone there I would have walked away with at least 6 diceases for sure! Eeew. We had a great time though!

BUT! Good times are coming, cause if there is one event I feel most exited about in The Netherlands it’s Halloween! I always do something special with Halloween. Whether it’s a party, going out, dressing up, Walibi World halloween theme, ANYTHING! I just need to do something with Halloween. Not sure what I will be doing this year but I know my nails will be in style with me!

I wanted to start my Halloween mani’s with the simplest design:

I used Catrice MAN, GO Tango as an orange base. Then I stamped the spiderweb from BM13 on top with Konad Special Polish in black. Added a little black pearl and voila! C’est ςa!

Stay tuned for more Halloween fun :twisted:
