Blue and brown nail art

Here's a mani from the previous When Colours Collide nail art challenge with the color theme blue and brown. Personally I love this color combo and had many ideas but then I ended up with a time hazzle and this is all I got.


I was at my parents so I forgot to write down the polishes I used. But it was R de L Young, KIKO and HM to mention a few I used.

Wedding nails

Here's some wedding cake/wedding dress inspired nails I did for an IG challenge, but also my first Nail Challenge Collaborative this month with the theme; A new beginning. Loved this combo of white and holo and the chunky pearl accent. This is something I could consider doing again some time.

Red flower nail art on pastel pink base

Here's one of my "signature flower" nail art. I combined 2 IG challenges which was pastel and red flowers. I liked the whole thing, and then I used the Viva La Diva matte top coat...which make me hate every mani I've applied it on so far. The VLD matte tc basically makes it semi matte, I really prefer super matte or shiny, not semi-matte/semi-shiny. Oh well, Showing this one anyhow. :)

Promarker heart nail art

Here I've freehanded some hearts and filled them in with marker pens. I need to purchase some alcohol so I can blend them better. I still liked the result here. :) This is for an instagram challenge and is as you can guess, valentine inspired.

Black and silver leopard nails + makeup haul

 Oh I've been lazy. I've been so tired this week and at Thursday even I understood why, full bursting cold with all the nasty effects of it. I'm still not good, but think I'll go to work tomorrow anyhow.

Anyhow, I've got 4 manis posted on my IG while nothing happened here. So let's change that. :) First out is my black and silver leopard mani which was inspired by the mascara I recently bought. :D







Here's what I bought, foundation primer (kicks), foundation(maybelline), mascara(kicks), eye liner (kicks), lipstick pencil (kicks), matte powder (isadora), and eye shadow primer (kicks). Basically a lot of Kicks products. So far I've tried most of the stuff. Worth mentioning is the the foundation primer which actually works really well. The lipstick pencil is great except that it dries my lips after a while. And the eye liner last without ever smudging, but is also a bit harder to applicate as I'm used to a pencil, not a marker tip. And well, the foundation, mascara and powder I've used before and they work great for me. :)

Essence - City Girls Rocks (LE)

Tie-dye water marble in black and purple

#clairestelle8challenge had 'out of comfort zone' as a theme and it was quite obvious that water marble should be my choice.😝 I ended up with something looking like a tie dye, or octopus tentacle. I dunno. But I liked it.

Nail Challenge Collaborative - Winter nail art, summary

As I mentioned before Collages might pop up. In January the theme for Nail Challenge Collaborative was winter. I've already posted my 4 manis on IG but I wanted to show them to you here too. :)

One gradient with Ninja Polish - Melted snowman. XD

Two manis stamped with snow flakes.

And one freehand of a poor polar bear on a melting piece of ice. Done with nail polish. ^_^ This is obviously my favorite.








Feel free to join this monthly nail art challenge. Find us at Facebook by searching for Nail Challenge Collaborative. :)

Hello 2017 & Penguin freehand nail art

Needless to say 2016 wasn't my year for many reasons. Personal issues made my motivation at the bottom and my nail art'ing was sparse. To make it worse I had computer problems (which of course could have been solved with an excellent economy). To sum it up, all things which could go wrong at the same time did. I hope 2017 will be much better. :)


I'm not really expecting anyone of my old followers to still be around. I feel like I'm doing this for my self. Building up my searchable archive as I intended before, to easier see what I've done and my improvements etc.

I'm that kind of person who likes things in order. Therefore I debated with my self how I should handle the blog thing. I've posted things on IG which I haven't posted here. Should I try to catch up? Should I give up and just keep doing IG only? I've decided for a yes and no on the catching up, I won't force it though. I like the routine to post the same content on both channels on same dates.

So, I've updated my blog design a bit. Not sure I want to keep Blogger though, suddenly it feels awfully dated, but that's for another day. This is better than nothing for the moment.

First up is this penguin nail art for an IG challenge called Glamnailschallenge. Simple freehand with nail polish. Actually my first ever penguin nail art. :) And I'm really proud of it.
