Black & Gold

*bursts into song*

Not a glitter gradient but still cool, right?
The combination of gold and black always makes me feel instantly festive. It's not a combination I typically wear from May to August but sometimes even I stray :-)

Unfortunately it wasn't as easy as I expected to give it an 'even' feel, I would have liked all nails to look like the thumb nail. But well. I always say "I'll do better next time" but funnily enough I hardly ever repeat a mani, not when there's so many cool things still to do!

And if you haven't got a clue why I burst into song everytime I see this mani (or if you just feel like dancing) here is the vid (by Sam Sparrow).

I used: Drug store brand black polish, Essence Make it Golden, Essence Quick Dry Topcoat

Golden Spirits

Khaki meets glitter, yay!
One easy way to make your nails more interesting (for example if your job doesn't allow you to wear more outragous designs) is to use an accent nail. You can use a colour that is quite similar to the other digits, or something completely different!

For example, I love khaki and I love glitter. But as glitter can be such a pain to remove, I decided to just make it an accent nail. Essence Make it Golden is a really cool, flaky glitter. Try it if you find it somewhere!

Unfortunately it was a cloudy day and I didn't think to take a flash picture. I swear it looked pretty awesome!

I used: Essence High Spirits, Essence Make it Golden (three layers)

Welcome to my blog! How awesome that somehow, you have found your way here :-) I hope you will find some inspiration here, as I have found on so many of those amazing blogs, tumblrs and websites.

For now, I will update twice a week.
I can't be bothered cropping my pictures (yet?), I hope you can forgive me for the glimpses of my private life you will be able to see in the pictures ;-)

I will also have a guest contributor: my amazingly talented sister.
