No Happy Monday for me today :(

Hi all :)

Today's Happy Monday theme is animals, but I'm not participating today. I'm doing fieldwork at a hospital at the moment, so I'm not allowed to wear nail polish! I could in principle have done a mani today, while I'm at home, and take it off again after a couple of hours, but I don't like doing that :)

Hopefully I can make a mani next week, but I'm not getting home again (it's a couple of hours away from where I live, so I'm living there during the fieldwork) until late sunday, so it's only if I get a chance to do it during the day Monday that I'll participate next week.

But check out the other girls' animals manis =)

Have fun and take care =)

Happy Monday - Easter: Brigth Easter Florals

Hi all :)

Today's theme is Easter.. I'm not big on easter traditions.. I thought about making easter eggs og bunnies or something, but it didn't feel right for me to do it.. For me easter is more about bright colors and flowers, so that's what I went for :)

I used a base of Urban Outfitters Virgin and then I blotted on  L'Oreal Atomic Purple, Kongsøre of Denmark No. 5048 and Gosh Neon Baby with saran wrap and lastly stamped with QA61 (from BornPretty Store) and Wet'N'Wild Black Creme. I love this stamping plate!

Failed triangles and failed photos!

Hi all :)

Today I'm showing you a fail! Because why not?

I tried to replicate THIS triangle nail art tby Pshiiit, but as you can see I didn't even manage to place the tape right so as to make triangles on my pointer.. haha.. I was SO excited about doing this nail art and failed so hard! But I still enjoyed the colors of the polishes used..

And apropros those, my camera freaked trying to take pictures of them and since I already have trouble with my white balance setting atm, I couldn't capture them at all! I used China Glaze Highlight of my Summer and Hot Makeup No. 08..

I hope you enjoyed seeing my fail :p Be sure to check out the inspiration behind it, because that's awesome nail art!

Have fun and take care =)

Happy Monday - Wonderful Sky: Wonderful Night Sky

Hi all :)

Today's theme is 'wonderful sky'.. I didn't want to do a night sky, but after seeing THIS nail art by Copycat Claws, I knew I had to try that out anyway :) Even though it didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted it - I wanted it to have been darker - I still like it a lot :)

I used a base of Orly Snowcone. Did a gradient with H&M Want a Lemon, Orly Snowcone, Rimmel My Denim and Impala Paparazzi. I then did 'stars' and a moon with Sally Hansen White On.

After doing a coat of Orly Snowcone I was impressed (again) by how opaque it was, so I snapped a quick picture (therefore it's a bit of a mess). If I wanted to wear it alone I might have done a second coat, but as a base for this nail art I did just one.. Look how opaque it is!! haha..

Here's the Spring Challenge overview (even though the order is a bit different now)

Check out the other wonderful sky manis :)

Have fun and take care =)

Negative Space Textured Nail Art

Hi all :)

This is the most simple nail art I've ever done, but I love it so much! First time I've done 'negative space' nail art - if I can even call it that.. What I did was to put down tape on my BARE nail - not even with a basecoat on it - and then did two coats of each of the colors. I used Barry M Station Road (yellow), Atlantic Road (blue) and Ridley Road (mint)..

I simply LOVE the colors and the 'weirdness' of the naked nail peeking through on my ring finger.

Unfortunately I messed up my middle finger a bit and had to apply a third coat - and that's why the texture is not as prominent..

Have you tried doing 'negative space' nail art? Do you like that trend?

Have fun and take care =)
