Instanails #7

With the Holidays fast approaching I’ve been enjoying doing my nails for then ever. I only have time to do them once I week, but when I do it, I make sure to take the time. I work out, have dinner, shower and then do my nails while watching some Youtube videos. I like to…

NOTD: Blue confetti

The past few days we saw some pretty nice spring weather over here and so it urged me to post some fun spring nail polish look. Remember my love for baby blue nail polish? Well that is still going strong and so I paired a fun baby blue polish with an even more fun top…

NOTD: Easy as Peach

It’s spring so it’s time to bring out those brights and pastels when it comes to nails. And what color is more sunny and fun looking that yellow? Add a bit of cupcake sprinkles and you have the perfect recipe for a nail of the day that breathes spring time. One of my favorite ways…

NOTD: A flaky does it

Glitters. Holographic top coats. Flakies. If it sparkles I’m all game when it comes to nail polish. So when you combine the three and make a glittery holographic flaky top coat, you bet I need that puppy in my life. So when Catrice released a Limited Edition last year that included a nail polish that…

NOTD: Denim Blues

My new favorite nail polish shade for spring? Blue! I am loving blues in all different shades at the moment. But especially the paler, softer tones that are much more appropriate for spring. So I thought it would be time to show you a blue nail polish look. This nail polish look includes 2 different…

NOTD: The semi-purple gradient

Not all nail looks turn out to be a success and I’m still not sure how I feel about the one I’m showing you today. On the one hand I like it, and on the other, I think it’s hideous! When I decided on pairing these polishes together, I went by the way they looked…

Instanails #1

Today I thought I’d try something new. Not all of my nail looks end up on here. I often don’t have time to make sure I do a proper nail photo shoot. Or I simply forget or I don’t find the combination interesting enough to share on here. Whatever it is, I sometimes still end…

NOTD: Rose gold galore

Rose gold is everywhere nowadays and when I found these two rose gold inspired nail polishes last year I thought they would make a great combo to hop on to the trend. They are both super affordable, as they’re by budget brand Catrice, and I absolutely love the colors. The two polishes are from limited…

NOTD: Icy taupe

A quicky nail post for today’s nail news. I created this super easy to do nail look the other week and thought I’d share. All you need is a taupe basecoat and an ice like glitter topcoat and you’re done! Here’s what I did. I never really pay attention to the type of colors I’m…

NOTD: glammed up peach

A quicky nail post after this morning’s musical extravaganza. One of my favorite ways of wearing glitters lately is by using a pastel or fairly neutral base color and to layer the glitter over that. This is one of my favorite combinations so far. Products used: L’Oreal Miracle Repair 7 base coat for damaged nails…

NOTD: Greige not beige

For today’s second post I’m bringing you a NOTD I wore recently. I’m still loving the sand style or liquid sand type nail polishes. So when I was in Germany and checked out local drugstore DM, it was a no brainer to pick one of these up. I found this gorgeous taupe color from P2….

NOTW: Midnight in Moscow

Shock & horror! No it’s not Halloween just yet, but I think for the first time on this blog, I have a nail of the week for you that entails only one nail polish. Before you start thinking that I am losing my edge: I’m not. I had a party to go to and I…

NOTW: Pastels for Easter

Just a quick little post as I’m busy with some social activities these days. I visited my parents for an Easter brunch yesterday and today I will be hitting up some friends for a birthday so I don’t have much time. This is the nail look I put together for a fun spring/ Easter look….

NOTW: Frosty Ocean

I of course had to us my new Catrice & Essence polishes on my nails as quickly as I could. So when I was doing my nails before heading to my parents for my mom’s birthday I came up with this quick and easy nail look. On my nails: Essence Walk on Air as a…

NOTW: Coral Ocean

It’s been a while since I did any nails of the week, so I thought it was time to do something new. This time I was feeling like doing something colorful with a beautiful bright coral color and a bright teal. Left hand Right hand As you can see I alternated my hands and added…

NOTW: New Catrice polishes

The other day German budget make up brand Catrice revamped their collection with some new products. My favorite Catrice product must be their nail polishes. So when I found out about the new colors they were releasing I decided to have a look and see whether anything would be worth picking up. Unfortunately there are…

NOTW: Strictly Cookies & Cream

This week I wanted to try something clean and simple. I love Ciaté’s Cookies & Cream nail polish as it’s a great neutral shade. I decided to pair it with a stripe of Ciaté’s Strictly legal as I thought the dark purple with subtle golden glitter would be a good contract with the creamy beige…

NOTW: A little bit of this…

… and a little bit of that. Finally my nails have started to grow out again so I think I can do some fun nail creations again some time soon. As for right now, my nails are covered in 5 different colors. I simply couldn’t choose and didn’t think any of these colors special enough…

NOTW: Pink & Sunshine

I have been so lazy regarding my nails lately. First it was because they all started breaking on me. It was as if my nails had suddenly become more brittle than usual. The problem: my new nail polish remover. And now, I’m just too lazy to look into cute nail designs and what not. So…

NOTW: Vampire Black

This week I spent on the couch watching True Blood Season 4 for the most part. I was feeling under the weather and I had yet to watch the latest season and lo and behold what I picked up when I sat to do my nails? Yep two black polishes that in hind-see are very…

NOTW: Sparkly New Year’s Nails

When deciding on what nail polish to wear, I quickly grabbed two of my new glitter polishes. I especially think the duochrome polish is very suitable for celebrating the new year. It reminds me of fireworks! I am wearing the turquoise glitter polish on my thumb and pinky. My other nails are covered in a…

NOTW: Festive green nail art creation

I suddenly had this idea for making a new nail art creation. Again, it’s something very simple nor is it super fancy, but I think it’s cute and the colors are a perfect match to the time of year.This is the result: As you can see I went with a seafoam green base coat, added…

NOTW: Strictly Legal

Last week, I logged onto Facebook and found a very nice surprise in my inbox: I had won a free nail polish by nail polish brand Ciaté. I was allowed to pick whichever color I liked from their current range of colors. I ended up picking a color called Strictly Legal: a deep plum/ purple…

NOTW: Blue toned french manicure

Another week, another new nail look. I decided to play around with a current trend: french manicures with a twist and this is what I came up with: It’s my first time painting a french manicure on my nails and my ring finger is one hot mess, but I think it looks cool. It’s certainly…

New Rimmel I Love Lasting Finish Nail Polish

A while ago I read on many beauty blogs that Rimmel would be releasing some new polishes in funky colors. I finally found them in my local drug store and brought home two of the polishes. This is my review of these polishes and a quick nail of the day/ week. In the picture above…
