Having a good night with grey, black and gold..

Hi all :)

Last Friday I did these nails before going to a party.. Ever since I got my hands on Wet'N'Wild Fergie Tonight's Gonna be a Good night, I've wanted to do a grey/black/gold mani with it and I thought it would be fitting to wear this combo at a party (even though it wasn't a fancy party at all)

I loved the result!

Here's some not-so-good close-ups, but you can see that the black I used for striping has gold glitter in it too!

I used City Color Gray as my base (A rose-shaped bottle, found it in Rite-Aid as far as I recall - a grey with gold shimmer), Wet'N'Wild Fergie Tonight's Gonna be a Good night, NYC Sidewalkers, NYC Haunted, Sinful Colors All About You.

I'm going to the H Street festival in DC tomorrow, I think it's going to be great!

Have fun and take care =)

Diagonal-y teal..

Hi all :)

This mani didn't really end out as I wanted it to, but I loved the end result nonetheless! I wanted to use the pattern that you see on my thumb and middle finger for some more elaborate patterns, but it didn't work out well.. So it ended out like this and I really liked it =) And I think the colors worked really well together..

I was a bit shaky, so the execution wasn't the best... but from a distance you couldn't see that ;)

This mani lasted for soo long! I think I wore it for 4 days or so with hardly any chipping.. amazing! I usually have chipping within 24 hours.. So I was pretty satisfied :)

I used Essie Absolutely Shore as base color and Milani Fresh Teal and Key West for the nail art.. It's all done with a dotting tool..

I've got to go back to studying :) I hope you're all doing well!

Have fun and take care =)

White-ly dotted..

Hi all :)

This is the first nail art I have been able to do while I've been in the US.. It's not complicated or anything but I really liked the end result.. I haven't dotted with white before and I don't even think I've done a dotted mani like this before..

The colors are not quite color accurate.. I don't have any kind of setup for doing this.. I need to get my hands on an OTT light bulb.. Which store do you think it's possible to find an OTT lamp here in the US?

Here's a phone pic..

I used: Jordana Mellow Yellow and Smooth Blue and Confetti Cat Eyes. For the dots I used the no-name white I brought from home and usually use for stamping...

I got a lot of compliments on this one too :)

Otherwise everything is going well here in the US :) It seems that you do more assignments here than back home, I already have a 10 page assignment for tomorrow in a course I haven't even had any lectures in yet.. wow.. I usually spend a lot of time brainstorming for a paper, before actually writing it, but this one I need to do so fast, that I won't have time for that :p Wish me good luck ;) haha

Have fun and take care ;)

Old mani and my very first American Football game (or is it match?)

Hi all :)

This is a mani I did way before I left Denmark, so it's probably about 1½ month old.. I really liked it, but ended up with to many layers on the nail.. I should have used more opaque polishes,  but those were the ones I had with me a that time..

I added glitter a bit later.. But that might have made it a bit to busy? Which version do you like the best?

I used: H&M Fashionista, Rimmel Lycra Pro My Denim, Rimmel 60 Seconds Blue me away, Gosh Blue Monday, H&M Lime and the glitter is Essence Special Effect Topper Circus Confetti..

Here at University of Maryland everything is good :) The semester started this past Wednesday and I'm excited about the courses I've chosen.. But I think I'll have a much bigger workload here than at home, especially now that I have to write in English instead of Danish.. But it'll all be good =)

In a couple of hours I'm going to my very first American Football game! It's UMD against William & Mary (I have no idea if that's another University or what? :p) I should have done UMD-themed nails, but haven't had the time and just changed my mani.. I have to do that at another point..

I really miss doing nail art! I hope I have some time this weekend, now that it's Labor Day monday and I don't have any classes Tuesday.. i have to take advantage of that :)

Have fun and take care =)
