Hi there! I didn't publish any post yesterday. I was packing and preparing for my first week as an intern at a company in Malmö. Christina (Passionate About Polish, instagram: @cilp) invited me to live with her. How fun!
Today is day 14 and the theme is flowers. Take a look!




So, this was a fast and easy manicure. The base is Ciaté Headliner in two coats and then I stamped a rose pattern from Bundle Monster BM-323 using China Glaze Scandalous Shenanigans.
It's not a super fun manicure, but it's quite simple and clean. I like it!

Hope you're having a great Sunday!

#31DC2014 | Day 13 - Animal Print

Hello everyone! How are you?
So, no post yesterday. Not gonna apologize this time though, 'cause I was studying for my presentation that I had today and I did't go to bed until 2 am. Yeah.
So, today is day 13 and the theme is Animal Print!




So, I googled for inspiration yesterday during my study break and found this awesome frog. It's called a yellow banded poison dart frog and I though that it looked amazing. This would make a great manicure, just yellow and then some blobby bands of black and some dots. Easy!

Well. It didn't turn out as awesome as I wanted it to. But yeah. I kinda like it.
The yellow is two coats of China Glaze Happy Go Lucky and a thin coat of ORLY Glowstick. The black is Nordic Cap NP12. Yeah. That's about it.

Have a great Friday!

Hello cuties! Here I am, late as always! ;)
Today is day 12 for me. The theme is stripes!





I'm really happy with these nails! Seriously, I did a great job!
The base is a light sea foam green shimmer by China Glaze and it's called Keep Calm, Paint On. I love this polish. It's delicate and pretty and clean and cool at the same time. It's perfect! I've used it before in a couple of manicures, like this one, and I just love it.
I freehanded the stripes with a striping brush and these are the colors I used:
OPI Fiercely Fiona
OPI Who The Shrek Are You?
China Glaze Papaya Punch
I♥Layla N.07 (THANK YOU MARIA!)
Cult Nails Riot

I placed two neon orange studs* from Born Pretty Store on the pinkie and the pointer.

#31DC2014 | Day 11 - Polka Dots

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!
First of all; I have updated the Gradient post! Check it out!
Second of all; this challenge will last for a lot more than 31 days. Doesn't matter, I love doing this!

Today I've been studying. Yeah. That's all. So let's talk nails instead!
Polka dots for day 11!





I don't like these pictures. They're fine, but they're not good. Just so you know.

The base of this manicure is Nordic Cap NP12 and NP13. Then I used China Glaze First Mate to make the dots on the white nails. I don't know if you can see it, but there's actually a gradient going on in the dots. To get that effect I just mixed First Mate with my white polish and then again with the black polish.
I did the same thing on the black nail but I used Nfu Oh 394 instead.
Then I put a fimo bow on my middle and my ring finger, and a square stud on the other nails.
Finished with a coat of Glisten & Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

Hi guys! It's almost 1am here in Sweden and I just finished the nails for day 11, and as you probably understand I won't post them today. Or I will post them today, but after I had my sleep.

I'm sorry, but I'm really busy right now. I have my final project in school (then internship and then graduation), so I've been studying all day. I'll see you tomorrow though! I PROMISE!

Goodnight babes!

#31DC2014 | Day 9 - Rainbow

Green is veganBlue is cruelty freePurple might or might not be cruelty freeRed is not cruelty freePlease visit my "Animal Cruelty" page for more information -

Heeeelloooo guys! It's saturday! How fun! I'm going to play some games with my friends. Do you have any plans for this evening?
Today it's day 9 and the theme is rainbow. Check out what I did!




I made some stamping decals with Konad m61, Nordic Cap NP12 and acrylic paint. Unfortunately my acrylic paint is a bit too dark, so I didn't get the look I was aiming for.
The base is Alana Renee It's A Surprise, which is a white shimmer with a yellow tone. Looks pretty white on these pictures though. It's not that white in real life.
The glitter is Worst. Polish. Ever. by Happy Hands. This was also a birthday gift that I got from Ulrika last year. It's not the worst polish ever. It's actually pretty amazing. The applications is flawless! Too bad Happy Hands don't do polishes anymore.

I do like this manicure, even though it didn't turn out the way I wanted. What do you think?
