Challenge 15: Fashion Nails

Hi Girls!

This Saturday's Challenge was: Fashion Nails. I had no idea how a fashion nail should look like, but then I saw this manicure at Beauty Nails Fun and it suddenly became clear what I wanted to do.

I was "working" without the actual picture in front of me, so it came out a little ... different :-)

Products I have used:
  • Golden Rose - Nr. 182 (base color)
  • Coral Art - Nr. 31 (pink lines)
  • White and blue acrylic paints
  • Dotting tool

OPI Euro Centrale (The Polka Buff)

Hi Girls!

For today's manicure I have used the new OPI polishes, from the Euro Centrale 2013 Spring Collection. I could not decide which one is my favorite so I ended buying 3 from this collection:

From left to right, my beauties:
  • I Saw… U Saw… We Saw… Warsaw (dark blue)
  • My Vampire is Buff (creamy, nude) 
  • (light blue and pink glitters) --> it's such a perfect mach, it is easy to mistake it for an indie :-)

Challenge 14: Delicate Print

Hi Girls!

The theme for today's challenge is: Delicate Print.
This was a horrible challenge for me. I don't own any Konad plates, I had no idea what delicate print to make, so I took a powerful pink polish and added some delicate dots :-P
I hope I didn't disappoint you! Meanwhile I have placed an order for some Konad plates. I can't wait to put my hands on them :-D

Products I have used:
  • Moyra - Nr. 56 (pink)

Challenge 12: Inspired by a book

Hi Girls!

Inspired by a book was one of the most complicated challenges for me. Days passed and I had no idea what manicure I would present today. 

To solve this problem I used Occam's Razor. Wikipedia's definition sounds like this:  "Occam's Razor states that among competing hypotheses, the one that makes the fewest assumptions should be selected". My definition is more simple: the easiest solution is the best one. 

I asked myself: "Which is your all time favorite book?". And the answer was: "The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco". 

This novel is a historical murder mystery which takes place in 1327, in an Italian monastery, but I preferred to draw only the "title" of the book, not it's story :-).

Products I have used:
  • OPI - My Vampire is Buff (from the Euro Centrale Collection)
  • Acrylic paints

Pastel Manicure Nr. 1

Hi Readers!

Together with some nice bloggers we have started a new collaboration with the theme: Pastels. 
I find this theme very hard. You can practically do anything using only pastel colors. 

My first manicure from this series is modest. On top of the pastel color I have applied some polka dots. They are my weapon of choice for tuning up a manicure. 

Products I have used:
  • Orly - Green Apple ( from the Hot Stuff Collection)
  • OPI - My Vampire is Buff (from the Euro Centrale Collection)
  • Nubar - Black Polks Dot (from the Polka Dots Collection)

World Autism Awareness Day Manicure


The 2nd of April, 2013 is the 6th annual World Autism Awareness Day. Autism organizations celebrate this day by fundraising and awareness-raising events.

For this occasion I have painted my nails blue. This is my own way of raising the awareness of my environment, as blue is the official color of autism.
