21. Red’s The Way I Like It â™Ľ

Hi all! I not been posting here for a while, because while the spring has arrived to my neighborhood it has brought my horrible allergies with it. My past days have been spent in the comfort of my own bed, hiding from all the evil trees that make me sneeze the hell out me. 😀

But, I’m starting to feel better, and I’m totally enjoying it. I got rid of my old winter hair, and changed the black locks to bright red curls that I just adore. Everyone who has had red hair while standing in the sunlight might understand 😛

I also got my Sassy-Nation-Bodysuit from Blackmilk Clothing and oh-my-god it is amazing! If anyone has doubted if it would be worth it to order it, I can say it definitely is. It became instantly one of my favorite pieces of clothing!

But now to the real business which is nails!

I wanted to do something that would match my new hair, so I used red holographic polish Sleigh Me from Liquid Sky. It truly is a perfect polish. It is so beautiful and it combines my 2 favorite qualities of nail polishes; holo + redness ! :3

Then I stamped it with black flower lace pattern, from one of my sisters plates. It is plate from Emily De Molly (number 01)

Then I finished the design with clear rhinestones. 🙂

19. Bold & Beautiful

In this weeks ”Lakkaushaaste”, the challenge was to make really bold nails that would stand out from a crowd. I’m not very good in such designs, so my boyfriend suggested that I’d make a water marble design with some psychedelic colors.

I tried out some polishes but they didn’t really work well with the water so I took those who worked and went with it.

I used Summer Neon from Wild and Crazy as a base, and a red polish also from them, wet n wilds Glowstick from their Fergie collection and neon yellow from from Flormar for the water marble.

Then I stamped it with black Konad polish and a pattern from my new XL plate.  It turned out quite nice in my mind. Hope you like them too! : )

16. Sakura

Spring time is here ! 🙂 The Lakkaushaaste group had a challenge this week to make nails that resemble spring somehow. So, when my new Sugar Bubbles plates arrived in the mail, the Japanese styled plate gave me an idea to paint cherry blossoms (=Sakura) on my nails.

These really turned out well, and are probably my favorites from the nails I’ve made so far 🙂 First, I used white Matte nail polish from Seppälä and then painted it over with China Glazes Dandy lyin’ around. The reason why I did that, is because the China is a bit too transparent to be used by itself, so with a good strong white under it, it only needed 1 layer to look good.

Then I started making the stamper decals from the Sugar Bubbles plate – I wanted to give the flowers a bit color so I decided that just stamping wasn’t enough. I bought a rose-colored polish from Rimmel just for the occasion, because I really don’t own any light pink colors. Maybe when the summer nears, I’ll by some :3 And also, that the nails wouldn’t be boring, I made a different kind of decal to my ring finger nail. It is a really pretty picture of a geisha sitting by a river and reading a scroll. To color it, I used the same rose polish that I used for the blossoms, Gray Day from Models Own and Can’t Find My Czechbook from O.P.I.

I hope you like these as much as I do! ^^

15. Trough a Sunrise to a Sunset

I’ve been planning these nails for a while now and finally managed to decide which polishes to use. I got the inspiration from Bundlemonsters plate 414 where there’s a image of a skyscraper silhouette. It got me thinking of a sun rising and setting behind it. All the polishes were from Wet n Wild; 

Morning sun: Orange

 The day: Blue Wants to Be a Millionaire

Setting sun: Hannah Pinktana

The nightfall: Teal of Fortune

I was not sure what to do with the thumb nails; paint it black as the darkest night, or something else. Then I got the idea to make a ombre with all the colors for the other nails and stamp the building there also 🙂 So, you can see the outcome in the pictures! Hope you like it 🙂

14. Fiery Ombre

At Monday, I noticed that it is dangerous for me to go anywhere near places that sell polishes. Or at least for my wallet. I visited Oulu and traveled back home with a bag full of shiny goods that I found. I almost jumped and cried with joy when I saw the wonderful Nails polishes were on sale at Seppälä. Only 2 euros per bottle! ❤ I also got a nail decoration kit with some holographic glitter polish, skittlettes and nail glitter. And because it’s Spring and the sun has started to brighten up the days, I had to by a spring polish; Peach Nectar from Isadora. It’s so cute and I love liquid sand polishes.

But to my newest nails. I decided to do something very colorful with my new red Nails polish and my old orange one. So ombre time!

I really like how they turned out, the pattern from Bundlemonsters plate number 403 matching quite nicely the ombre base. The strong black created a good contrast with the fiery colors beneath it.

I still have a little bit too many problems with waiting patiently for my polish to dry… As you maybe can see in the pictures, it isn’t the cleanest result. Also, it was very difficult to place the patterns in the right place by stamping, so after couple of failed attempts, I decided to make stamper decals out of the pattern so I would have more time and possibilities to be careful.

Also, got great news today; the stamping plates that I ordered while ago had arrived to Finland. :3 They are in Oulu now so maybe I’ll pick up them at Friday or so.. Can’t wait to get my hands on them !

13. Matte Coral

I’ve had a hard time to come up with good ideas for the weekly challenges from the “Lakkaushaaste” group in Facebook. I have started to make so many nails but stopped always in the halfway because they just were not working for me. But today I started to reshape my nails because the last shape was so vulnerable, often breaking when the length reached certain point. So I took out my nail file and got rid of the round shape of the tips ^^. My nails are still bit short for this but I think I’ll love them when they grow a little bit to this shape.

Ah, and then I also had to paint them! The challenge this week was to do matte nails, so I used Coral Prosilk Matt Effect nail enamel. Then I saw my Konad m73 and thought the square pattern could match cutely with the coral color. 🙂 So here you go:

The pattern on my thumb failed a bit because it was still a bit wet when I applied the top coat.. But it had failed about five times already because I’m so terrible at not doing anything while my nails dry. Should seriously consider the quick dry top coat. 😀

12. Saint George

After completely ruining my last nails by going to sleep before the polish had completely dried, I hit a series of failed attempts to take part in this weeks polishing challenge which was to do wrap nails. I tried and tried but only to notice that me and wrap nails don’t get along. At all. The results were just horrible. Never again.

So in my agony I dug up my new A-England Saint George to seek some comfort from it’s beautiful depths. And it definitely cheered me up. These polishes have been a dream to polish with, covering the nail almost with the first layer and preserving the color they have in the bottle.

To protect the nails, I used my sisters quick dry top coat Northern Lights by Inm. It. Was. Gorgeous. ❤ I have to find it somewhere and buy it ! It was the most beautiful holographic glitter topcoat I’ve ever seen. And it worked perfectly with Saint George. 

Although the nails were simple and beautiful as they were, I had to do some stamping. I stamped the pattern from Konads plate numer m63 with silver matte polish.
