polish chipping

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 :-)

Stars at night

This is a dark blue I got from :-) 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!!)

Bombay yellow dotting

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.

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 :-)
