Could do with some ornaments! -now including ornaments :)

24 Dec

After spending my day cleaning and cooking, it was time to get my nails Christmas day fit.
With a white base coat, the idea was to get them angelic. I soon realised it wasn’t as straightforward as I imagined it would be. On to the next. I was thinking wreath…. But settled for a branch instead. Now that it’s done, I’m pretty sure it could do with some ornaments! But they’re gonna have to wait until the morning, I guess Christmas Day isn’t too late to decorate a tree 😉





#31DC2013 Day 7: Black & White and a whole lot of temptation!

7 Sep

Aaah, Black&White day! I’ve been looking forward to this one!
But then, with crispy white (albeit slightly bubbly) nails ready for action, I looked up at my very messy desk. There they were, calling my name, winking for my attention… all these lovely colors and tiny rhinestones that were just aching to work with those all-whites!


I did a dotted circle pattern a couple of weeks ago on a nail wheel, turns out it works well with black, white and a dab of silver too!


To keep the surface as free from bubbles as possible, I used a matte topcoat over the plain white base. My matte (HEMA, a local Dutch chain I absolutely LOVE) gives a very smooth finish, ideal to cover any imperfections!
Then I applied 2 thin coats of pearl shine white, before dotting away with charcoal and silver.

The end result:



*I have some cleaning to do*


For which I used:



Nail polish? Yes, please!
