Sometimes you just have to.

6 Dec

My first final is coming up so all I see in between work is my bed (thankfully!) and my study books. With the exception of yesterday as my lovely husband took me on a surprise night out.
But apart from that, books-summaries-books. And more books.
Tonight, I had one of those “no more!”moments. And, with a selection of some awesome polishes within reach, it wasn’t hard to find a purpose for my newly found though temporary freedom! This is however a prime example of my inability to stick to a plan…. Here’s what was meant to be a white base with a string of Christmas lights. I rest my case. πŸ™‚

Pink party!

1 Nov

Take 2 on the pink party!! I did a gradient which… How do I put this… Did not turn out quite as fabulous as I imagined it πŸ™‚
As I’m still experimenting with the striping tape, this disaster was quickly switched to something I rather like. Super easy, takes a bit of time but the effect is worth it. It might not be very original but who cares!

#31DC2013 Day 10: Gradient

10 Sep

I love gradients. Love Love Love. And I love my current collection of greens (again, HEMA). So it wasn’t difficult to think of what to do for today’s theme. Unfortunately, in my quest to make the gradient as subtle as possible, I kind of oversucceeded. It’s so subtle you really have to spot it πŸ™‚
Coincided with this mani, Autumn has really hit The Netherlands (thank you Summer, you have been great this year!) so it was only appropriate to add a little nature to the gradient.
I like this one. I’ll do it again at some point, though slower to avoid the massive bubbling!

I heart the forest

1 Aug

Ever had something look absolutely suitable at night, but not so much the next morning in broad daylight? I decided to do a green gradient last night, which I thought looked very subtle and pretty. Had a bit of a silk fabric look about it (the pic doesn’t really do it justice), somehow it channeled H&M to me. Yeah, I’m weird like that sometimes πŸ™‚

Anyway, waking up this morning, I still LOVED the look but you know, work and all that… I know we’re in the middle of summer holidays and my wardrobe is reflecting a bit of the casual side, but still. Maybe tone it down a bit. Too bad, cos this was a great base to go all out on a little forest fest!
Chucked a white striper and the dark green from the gradient in my bag and the waiting began. Lunchtime never took so long to get here πŸ˜›

Completely thrown by the time it took to do 1 nail, I ended up only having enough time to do 1 hand + thumb. I think I’ll hide my leftie for the remainder of the afternoon!, and seriously show off the right hand. I really ❀ the result!!!
