Power to the pink

27 Nov

I guess pink has got a hold on me! Blue has been kicked off its throne, there’s a new ruler of the nails. Pink.
I only have 2 OPI’s, which I hardly ever wear. I tend to save them for times when I need my polish to last, which in all fairness is…. Never. I’m a one day polish kinda gal, I hate chipped or otherwise damaged colours and I easily get bored.
But, desperate times…. I just don’t have the time nowadays, with work, school and trying to hang on to what is left of my social life 😉
There it was. My OPI moment. Aphrodite’s pink nightie.
Well, I found out Aphrodite’s nightie does not excite me much, so she met some stripes and it was a happy ever after!
Oh. And meet my cute little spotlight!!




Oh My Sweetness!

22 Nov

It’s not exactly Valentine’s Day anytime soon, but somehow I was in the mood for hearts today. Pink and hearts can it be any sweeter?
It’s easy to do, you just cut a heartshape out of any random piece of paper, make it wet, stick it on your nails and start dotting around it. Try not to touch the paper, as the dots might stick to the paper more than on your nails that way.
When finished, remove the paper. If it’s dried to such an extend you run the risk of it not letting go, make it wet again and it will come off like a charm!




I’m really loving the effect, come Christmas I might do something angel-inspired like this. I’m thinking whites and silvers…..

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 🙂
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!


Something pink

1 Nov

With all that blue, it was time to throw in some pink! I like the contrast between pink and grey, so I decided on a grey base and a very simple glitter and dots pink pattern. Nothing special, really.
So tonight, I’ll be redoing my nails. Pinky swear.



#31DC2013 Day 17: Glitters are for girls

17 Sep

I got some funny faces in the office when I applied my peel off base coat this morning, and I have to admit; that stuff does look pretty weird when you first apply it. But for me, an absolute must when it comes to glitter. Essence Peel off base coat and Better than gel top coat combined, a great way to get rid of glitter polish fast and effortless.
Back on the subject of today’s challenge. I was pleasantly surprised by the faint pink polish with silver glitters by Essence. I just don’t like textured finishes, so top coat galore 🙂
With all that girliness, bows had to be added. As the silver on its own didn’t stand out at all, I first drew the ribbon with a charcoal polish and tiny brush, and then added the silver. Another coat of Better than gel, job done. Speaking of jobs, this theme fits perfectly with a day at the office tomorrow!



#31DC2013 Day 12: Stripes

12 Sep

Raise your hand if you’re good at sticking to plans. Haven’t raised it? Me neither!
I was so adamant to use the new striping tape I got in the mail the other day, honestly, my mind was set. SET!
Seeing as I’ve used a lot of greens and blues for the past 11 days, day 12 was going to be pink galore. A nice base of bright pink got my excitement up and before I knew it, I was striping away in red and purple on a weaving pattern. Lost track of time, so when I noticed how much time it took to do 1 nail, that plan was -also- aborted.


I am going to do that one at some point because it’s so nice and subtle. Maybe when I don’t have plans for an entire weekend, I might have the time 😉

All that pink, very little time, what to do… what to do…. I decided to do a very simple stripes in increasing size pattern. Quick, simple, topcoat it and off to bed (I do my nails the night before, so if I ever have no opportunity to complete it, I still have a day to finish it).




By morning, my stripes looked more like my heartbeat. At least we still have the pictures of how it once was….
