Lavender Galaxies

Lovelies,
Even though the look is probably 'passed', I still love Galaxy nails. Love, love, love them. But even I am done with dark nails now, and really up for some bright colours! So, why not make Galaxy nails, but using other colours?

I initially considered doing neon galaxies, but quickly realised it was failure waiting to happen. So I continued with lavender. I started with a white base but soon realised I needed a dark base colours for depth so switched the intended order in which to apply the polishes.



In the end I think the look is more 'water colour' than 'galaxy'. However, it's still a cool look that doesn't require all that much skill!
 
Have you ever tried an alternative Galaxy mani?


I used: Rimmel Ultraviolet, Rimmel Sky High, Hema 01 pink (no name), Hema white (no name), Max Factor Fantasy Fire, Essence Elves Like Lilac, Sally Hansen Disco Ball

Stolen Snowman Mani

It's been snowing like crazy these past two weeks, so finally it felt like it was time for the Snowman mani I stole from the lovely Kristine over at Pink & Polished. Her mani was the December 9th prompt for the 12 Days of Christmas challenge. I loved it so much that I have been wanting to do this ever since =) She encouraged me to do it, so, here it is, at last =D

My take on the design
The original design by Kristine

As you can see, my version is the lazy girl's take on the design ;-)

And here is a bonus picture of Ezio being all suspicious about the first snowfall of the year:


I used: L'Oréal Colour Riche 622 Sky Fits Heaven, Essie Blanc, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Disco Ball, Essence Get The Fever, black sharpie, star sticker

Lazy 15 Day Seven: Feminine Nails

Day Seven of the Lazy 15, and this was another hard one for me. Not because of some challenging technique, but because of the theme. Because what the heck are feminine nails?! Does that mean there are manicures that are not feminine? Granted, the Assassin's Creed mani I have planned may not be exactly feminine, but where is the line?

So, in the end I decided to combine the typically 'girly' heart symbol with neutral colours and a touch of glitter.
This was very hard to photograph (again...) and I kind of messed up the thumb by picking at the edges, forgetting I had used peel-off basecoat. Duh!
I added a matte top coat, but somehow it still looked shiny.

Feminine Nails, yay or nay?

So, what's your verdict? Feminine nails or did I miss the point entirely?


I used: Essence Iced Latte, Essence Stampy Polish white, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Disco Ball, Essence stamping set, matte top coat.

Have a great weekend and check back Monday for Day Eight: Dessert.
Also, you will find a list of all participants of the Lazy 15 Challenge after the jump. Have fun =)

Lazy 15 Day Five: Galaxy Nails

Day five of the Lazy 15 Challenge has arrived, and it has brought us Galaxy Nails.

I had done these before, and I loved doing them again. This might just be the only day in the challenge I wasn't anxious about ;-)
I decided to use some different colours, just to see how much of a difference it would make. Also, I didn't use my sponges but some eye shadow applicators. However, I think the overall effect is so eye-popping that individual colours don't really matter!
If you're not sure how to do Galaxy nails: this is the tutorial I followed the first time, and I still follow that order of colours.

This was really hard to photograph, as you will see from the pictures. I really loved the mani though!

Bye Bye Summer =(

*Sad face*
Summer is definitely over where I am =( We did have some warm sunny days October last year so who knows what's to come, but right now, it's rainy, cloudy, windy, sometimes even stormy. No wonder I'm sick.

So, I wanted a cool, festive mani to celebrate the summer, as it was a good one =) I decided to go for a beachy scene. I even tried my hand at stamping again and it went perfectly! Until I somehow managed to pull the polish and thus ruined the ice cream stamp =(

Shimmery beaches

Blah, poor pulled ice cream =(

I took these pictures before applying any top coat. Unfortunately, this meant any bumps and bubbles I hadn't spotted real-life, showed up nice and obvious in the pictures =( Oh well.


I used: Essence Gold Rush over Rimmel Bare Necessities, Sally Hansen Marine Scene over Rimmel Aqua Cool, Essie Too Too Hot (stamping), l'Oréal Jet Set 202 (starfish)
