Dark green from viva la diva!! and some dotting on top. in purple and black. the purple is to sheer to really show, but at least now i know. this was kind of uninspired. And the green isn't my favourite. But it is still green :-D

This is my light blue hello kitty hm polish topped of with white konad hearts :-) I also added some glitter from wet n' wild diamond sparkle! My absolute favourite :-D
I did better than usual with the Konad, and I think the secret is just to take your time, and wait 'til everything dries before konading :-)
inspired by laquer lane and beauty judy :-D I used silver for the coat trimming, because I actually forgot to bring white :-o but I like a little over the top glittter this holiday! new years eve will be even worse :-D
I used, Kiss nail art laquer for the gold and silver, rio art for the black and ruby pumps for the red :-)

This is what i ended up with after my light blue disaster on the thirteenth :-)
I needed cheering up, so I went for an unused sparkle from Gosh! Bright Passion.
I did not consider the dark jelly base in the polish, and put it on top of opi ate berries in the canaries.... Result is ok I guess, but I think this glitter would be great over a darker shade :-D
I did some konad on my ring finger from plate M21
This dottie mani is not like the ones I usually do, and this one reminds me of a clown's jacket :-p
I used OPI ate berries in the canaries and Rescue beauty lounge stormy grey :-)
Simple, easy to do and I loved it :-D
Saturday, November 14, 2009
this is the base of what I wanted to be a konadicure, but my impatience got the better of me, and I ended up smudging everything... a bad bad bad nail day, and also friday 13 ;-)
I still want to try this, thou!
I used rescue beauty lounge bikini bottom. it is so sheer, that I needed a ton of layers and it didn't dry enough even with quiqk dry topcoat...
over the bikini bottom, I had wet n wild sparkling diamonds. My favorite shimmer top :-D
I wanted to put qute white bows on top, but gave up... another time :-D

This time blue and orange :-D
I wish it wasn't three months since I did this mani and I wish I could remember the polishes :-s
Sorry!! but I did this mani 'cause I needed to keep my spirit up, and it almost worked :-)
Saturday, October 31, 2009
I thought I had lost this picture, but found it when I tried to organize my photos the other day.
I used bikini bottom from rescue beauty lounge and dotted with inglot nr 939. The letter is my boyfriend and I made the design after being away from him for a couple of days :)

dark green with black and purple dots made with rio nailart polishes.
The green is made with zoya dark green (forest something?) and a thin layer of China Glazes watermelon rind on top :-)
I really like to experiment with layers :-D
Sunday, October 18, 2009
I have done this design before, but I couldn't do it on both hands and I found it really difficult. But I guess I have developed some skills! Because it was easy his time! on both hands :-D
I used acrylics and glitter top coat and I think I will try acrylics for a new atemp on confetti nails soon :-D I also added a rihnestone to my right hand ringfinger :-)

My mom works as a piano teacher and the other day she said that it would be fun to show up on work monday with a wild manicure :-D And today we did it! she never wears polish, so this was a lot of fun!
I used Nivea rose gloss, depend yellow, depend lbue, depend black, china glaze entourage and Hm gold for the line.
Friday, October 2, 2009
I looked through a (for me) new blog last night, and got totally inspired! Wah Nails. So I wanted to work on my painting skills today.
I made a Cherry and tried a leopard print, but it definetly needs more work.. it looks more like some ancient language :-p
Cherry nail: china Glace entourage, depend black, China glaze watermelon rind, colorbar crystal red
leopard: HM gold holo and depend black
And my new shoes! They inspired me as well, and tomorrow all my nails will be like this!
(the colors match better in real life)
China glaze entourage, depend black, Nivea rose gloss

I just can't get enough of those colors :-D
in this one I used China glaze Entourage for the base, and I added depend 163 to the "moon" and also little purple hearts :-) The line is China glaze Watermelon rind and on top I had Wet n' Wild Kaleidoscope!
Here I used the same colors, but in different order ;-)
I included a picture of me and my love in this post, because purple is his favourite color :-)
(and since my color is green, it makes a great combination for fun manicures :-D)
i would love to tell you what colors have used, but I didn't write it down and I don't remember :-o but I think the purple base is Orly midnight star and that the black and the lighter purple is depend polishes. Hm, I need a system for writing down what I use :-D
more old pictures coming up!

I rushed too much putting on my polish today, and didn't let it dry long enough.
So i tried to fix it later today. But with a different color. Starting color was golden bronze from gosh and on top off that, i put OPI designer series Desiree. Not shure if The end result would have been the same without Gosh...
I was on my way to India when I wrote this at the airport (and also polished my nails at the airport) And for now, I'm going with plain un-dotted colors :-)
I'm taking pictures, so I might do a post of the mumbai nails when I get back :-)

This is a dark blue I got from nailmail.se :-) It looks kind of black if you don't want a vnl. But I like it :-) I tried to decorate it with silver dots, but I went a little overboard ;-D
It is orly star of bombay. (secomd bombay color in two days... and i'm actually going to bombay on sunday!!)
Tuesday, September 8, 2009
we saw this fantastic old Opel Manta on a walk in Helsinki, and it kind of matched my mani that day!
I kept the confetti on four nails, and made the rest yellow with black dots. One of my favourite combos :-) It is bombay yellow from Gosh.
Monday, September 7, 2009
in my last post, I promised to write more, and then I just stopped writing :-p I think I'll just stop promising ;-) But now i have a couple of posts planned.
This one is inspired by Nail of the weeks confetti nails:
The only thing different was that I didn't plan the colors ;-) And I didn't use a topcoat inbetween. I think topcoats in between would have made the colors stand more out, so I'll definately try that next time. And I will try this again, I loved it :-D
I really needed a cheerful mani this day. My love is studying two semesters in Finland, and cheerful dots helped a teeny tiny bit on the travel day. :-)
So any tips on what kind of polish to buy in Finland is great, I think I'll visit Finland quite a few times over the next year :-)

And of course again the dots!

I have fallen in love with decorating with dots ;-) It's so easy!
