NOTD: Ice Princess

Okay, technically these are not my nails of today. Hope you don't mind, as they are still prettyyyyy.


Isn't this such a perfectly wintery mani? <3

Base is three coats of OPI Solitarie (two on index finger).
Thumb: one coat of Let It Glitter Let it Snow.
Ring finger: two coats of Darling Diva Polish Care Bare Stare. It was better with one coat :-(

NOTD: Darling Diva Polish Get Off

Pretties,I know I am behind on my nail art. Good thing it's FRIDAY today so I'll be able to finally sit down and do my nails properly. I hope you are all looking at a fantastic weekend =)

Quick Nails of The Day. Nail polish of the Day, actually.

This is Darling Diva Polish Get Off. I got this by ordering the 5 for 25 deal on their Etsy. This means you get five polishes that are no longer listed. I love this deal!

Get Off actually is still listed, but the swatch is different. As you can see, my Get Off dries up more blue-silvery than you'd expect from the bottle. No problem for me, as I went into this without any expectations. I love it just the way it is <3

This is what you get if you order a bottle of Get Off:

Because of this and the fact that they say they put no longer listed polishes in this deal, I actually think my bottle may be labeled incorrectly. Either way, I love the polish.

Have you ever tried deals like this one? Any deals to recommend me?

NOTD: Geometric Black & White

My lovely readers,

As you can see, I'm still not quite up to posting regularly. I am doing my nails more often now though, so I thought I'd just post those for inspiration and not talk too much. Keep it simple! =) So you will be seeing more posts, yay!


I just *had* to add this picture because STORKS! BLACK AND WHITE!

NOTD: Sprinkle Drip

Another quick NOTD, pretties. I promise I will be back soon! I have a bunch of untrieds, just a lack of inspiration right now. It's so HOT out!

Here's a drip mani using Nails Inc Pudding Lane. I got this polish at BeautyBay. I love drip manis because they add instant spice to your nails without being too *IN YOUR FACE*.


I love this polish. I'm sure you'll be seeing more if it on this blog =)

NOTD: Cambridge Terrace French


My polishes are still sitting in a box. This means I haven't had to move out yet, but it also means it hasn't been okay to unpack them. Yet.
I haven't been up to doing any nail real art yet. I have even gone bare for a few days, gasp!

Here's a quick NOTD. Nails Inc Cambridge Terrace over a coat of OPI Nail Envy (I LOVE this stuff!) and an accent of Daily Lacquer Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice.

Festival Nails, yup, again =)

Nobody forget that Google Reader will be no more as of later this week! How will you keep following blogs? You can follow mine through Google Friend Connect or Bloglovin.

Last week I was working at a festival in France. It meant I had to go for a mani that would last me a few days and would be funky enough for a festival. I went for black combined with a Mavala polish I got from a swap on Facebook.

Here's a quick photo I took during a short break.



I used: Essie Licorice, Mavala Sparkling Bronze

NOTD: Rock Pink

First off, let me apologize. The next couple of posts will have dreadful pictures =( I'll just make them small ;-)

This is a hot pink mani with some added Rock&Roll. It's not what I am sporting right now, I'm slightly behind. This means there is a lot more to come =D
Click to enlarge. If you must...

As you may remember, I got Nails Inc Bling it On Rebel set during Sephora's clear out sale, so I added a leather accent nail, a stud and a crystal. This all came in the set.

For the index finger, I tried a gradient with NYC Rock Muse. Didn't really work out.

I have to say, I was amazed by the lasting power of the Nails Inc glue that came with the set. Whereas the leather polish chipped within hours, the studs lasted no less than a week! I had to incorporate them in all my manis.

I made the leather polish last longer by doing a mini sandwich (one coat leather, one coat top coat, two coats leather). So neat when little tricks like that work out!

Thank you for keeping following my blog even now there is not a lot of nail art going on. I promise that after the peak season is over, I'll get back to it! Even if it's just for me, I love doing challenges and I miss it. So don't give up on me just yet.

Banana Confetti

Yikes! Another hiatus, so sorry!

Last weekend it was brought to my attention that a well-known webshop had a promotion where you bought 4 Essie and/or L'Oréal products and you received a 40% discount. I started filling my basket right away, but then changed my mind and thought four polishes was just too much. But the next day I realised- who was I kidding? Four polishes is nothing! Hehe. So, I bought one Essie and one l'Oréal and got two l'Oréal polishes for free <3

So, here are two of my purchases: Banana Split and Confetti <3

Polishes make great gifts!

Another quick NOTD. Recently friends came over for dinner. It was the first time they visited since my move. The guy actually lives in what used to be my appartment, how weird is that!?
It was a great evening of good food, lovely conversations and Little Big Planet2, and not only did they bring some yummy beers, they also gave me this pretty, pretty, purple polish! How sweet is that?!


This is three coats and no, I didn't clean up, I just had to take pictures. But needless to say, they are welcome to come back for dinner anytime =D
