Green Queen

So ehm, it’s been a while.. Busy busy busy, annoying! BUT as promised on twitter I just needed to ‘make’ time for a new mani and here it is! I chose two colors that I love in combination; dark blue and bright green. The lime hex are from Dollar Nail Art and the beautiful 1-coat blue is the new Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans! from Catrice. I bought this together with the green Run Forest Run! (quite funny cause I STILL say/shout that whenever I see someone running lol ^^) and the greyish taupy Absolutely Chinchilly!. Three musthaves in my opinion.

Do you see the tiny lightblue flakies on the closeup pic? It’s so pretty. You won’t see it from a distance obviously but if you occassionally stick your finger nearly in your eye to look at a pretty polish you have on, like me, then it’s worth it ;) Time to enjoy the sight of the falling snow outside with a cup of hot tea now. Only downside of snowy weather outside is the aweful lighting for making pics, aw well, can’t have it all! Enjoy the weekend!

EDIT: Cause of all the sweet comments on the ring I’m going to tell you a secret. YOU CAN GET IT TOO! It’s right under your nose, … at Ebay :-D It’s cheap, the shipping is cheap and it got delivered in 3 weeks, awesome. They have great costumerservice also. Note: this is not silver, so be careful with adjusting the size. There are different sizes available, I’m wearing size 6 and it’s quite big lol! CLICK CLICK CLICK CLICK <3

Gold Out Forever! (dollar nail art review)

Yesterday my Dollar Nail Art order arrived and I finally got to work with some of the great stuff they sell there. I’m aiming at the Laser Lace. Laser Lace is a luminous weave of delicate fibers woven so closely together it can could be defined as lace. It’s available in 10 vibrant colors and I chose to buy the Sky Blue, Silver and Gold. I also got some green and pearl holographic glitter (the green I used on this mani) and loads of dots, hex and studs. Prepare to see more of this order soon :)

The Laser Lace wasn’t as easy to work with as it looked beforehand. The lace is very fragile and needs to be handled very very careful or you will make it fall apart. The glitter was just aweful. It has gotten everywhere where it wasn’t supposed to be. It gets delivered in a very small and tightly screwed jar which made me lose a quarter of glitter to just trying to open it. A little note: open the jars etc before you polish your nails. The striping tape is amazing and I can’t wait to use more of this, I got them in silver, gold and black and all in 2 different sizes. The one I used here is the biggest size.

Dollar Nail Art (.com) is a nice and trustworthy webshop with a lot of different nailart supplies. The items you see are $1 each but they also sell some fixed sets of products which differ in price. The shipping costs are rather high in my opinion, the supplies hardly weight anything and still I had to pay $10 to The Netherlands. Please beware that it’s a *requirement* to order for the minimum amount of $25 (shipping does not count) and you can only pay by credit card or paypal. Best thing would be to combine an order with a friend! They ship worldwide.

I’m off to do some work for school now, take care and thnx for looking!

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!

Fabulous Flakies: Nfu-Oh dupe?

Hey you guys!

I hope you will be running to your local drugstore after reading my post cause this combination of polishes is really awesome. I picked up the new Essence polishes Glisten Up and Absolutely Stylish today. I already saw an amazing effect of Glisten Up on Nihrida’s blog and was thinking about what color I would use as base. I figured, why not just put it on top of Absolutely Stylish and see what comes out. So I did…and was in awe. WOW! What an amazing green?! effect it gives. Weird, since Glisten Up is totally blue! The blue is hard to capture with my camera but it has this duochrome effect, you will see blue flakies in a certain angle. Just play with the lighting.

Behold zeh beauty:

Haven’t got an Nfu-Oh yet? Too expensive? Or just blown away by the beautiful flakies you see all over the web? Here is your cheap solution to a beautiful green/blue flakie manicure of which I even dare to say it’s a sliiiigggght dupe for Nfu-Oh 52. Big difference is this combination doesn’t have the purple’ish dark-blue’ish glow like Nfu-Oh 52 but hey, for the price you paid for these two polishes I think there is no reason to complain right?!

Take care and make the most of your weekend! :-)
