The polishes used today are Bombay Yellow and Holographic.
I loved the yellow, but the holographic was a bit strange to apply.. But I managed to get it on almost evenly...
I stupidly forgot to take pictures of the finished design, so I tried to reproduse it in photobucket :-p Something like this:

The main color here is one of my new favourites! Its green with a gold shimmer and it is Golden dragon from Gosh! And the pink dots are from no7 (boots brand) I made diffrent patterns with a tooth pick. And decorated with rhine stones. I reaaly like rhne stones, I thought it would be a pain to use and that they would fall off, but no, it's easy and I love it!
I think the picture at the top is most true to the color.

This is a red from Maybelline, Volcanic Red #60 I actually decorated it with Maybelline Couture Grey #800, but I forgot to take a picture :-o So I guess I have to do that manicure again :-D And also take a picture in the sun :-)

Today I used my beloved green china Glaze Entourage :)
And I fancied i up by dotting different colors in a pattern. I used a tooth pick as a dotting tool :)
But I forgot to use a base coat... and now my nails are a light greenish/yellowish tint... ugh!

Today I will show you a new polish. I found some Allessandro polishes in a local perfume shop. I have only seen french manicure sets from thm earlier, so I was very happy to see this!
I only picked out this color, but I might come back for more! This was the greenest I found, but they had a nice blue as well (more blue than this ;-) )
Alessandro #216 (This picture is tweked and matches bottle color better :-) )

When I started this blog, I started in norwegian, until I began to want some readers ;-)
After writing a couple of posts I figured that I might have to actually do something to get these readers ;-) So I opened a Twitter account. And that, along with commenting others blogs really worked!
It started slowely, but now the blog is read quite often :-D Ok, half of the page hits are still probably mine, but it is about to change :-D
Juhu! Thank you so much for reading!
(the picture is borrowed :-) )
So, todays topic is green! I love green. Love love love green! I have so many green clothes, bags and purses that it is ridiculous!! But I have only four green polishes, and two of those are frankens... So I decided to start a major green frankening operation :-D
And I discovered that I can franken with my old eyeshadows!!! I can't wait! I just need some old empty polish bottles... My nails will be soooo green :-D
I kind of wanted to do a new design today, but I love my "pollack" too much to change it ;-)

I have a part time job at a hotel and I work the breakfast shift. My nails startet to come off on some fingers, and I got scared that I would tear off my real nails at work, so I did my best to remove them on monday night.
I didn't ruin my natural nails, but I have a lot of remains from the gel on my nails.. look terrible!! (I didn't take a picture ;-)) Veeeery soon I'll post a new design, I just need time to dry my mani before I go out in the world.. Cause my latest looks like s**t :-p
Patience, Kristine.... Patience!
My computer is still at the doctors... But I will try to post a design tonight :-)

The polish takes aaaaages to dry.. And yesterday I waited more than an hour before going to bed. And this morning my nails are a complete mess!!!
Grrrr! I can't wait to try the other DIY gel nail thing. (this time with a UV light, so I have hopes for this one..)
I want nails like this:
Not like this:

But I guess that is the risk you take when trying a cheap set :-)
I'm planning to try out another set. Almost 10 times the price and hopefully more efficient...!!
Until then I am sticking with my current manicure... (Boooring) Or I might try to file away the color and change it...

And this is the result: (in dreadful lighting..)
First I did the grass and clouds on all nails, then I realized The grass should ofcourse be a funky french! With pink flowers :-)
