On my nails: KIKO Smart Nail Lacquer in ‘Dark Chocolate’

It’s been forever since I showed you my nails! Honestly, there wasn’t much to show. I’ve been keeping them short (because of the baby) and I also haven’t been wearing any exciting colors. Just the same nudes over and over again. And sometimes just a clear polish. The other day I picked up a few things at KIKO Cosmetics (there’s an actual store near my parents’ house), including two nail polishes. I posted a picture of my purchases on my Instagram. I don’t need any more polishes, but I couldn’t resist since they were on sale (just 2 Euro). One...

Mani Monday! Wet n Wild Candy Gloss Nail in ‘A Case of Blue’

Hello!! It’s Monday! I’m pretty sure you were aware of that 😀 It’s been a while since I’ve done a Mani Monday post, so I’m excited to show you what’s on my nails right now. This week I’ve been wearing a Wet n Wild Candy Gloss Nail Tint in the shade ‘A Case of Blue’. This is one of the 4 limited edition Megalast Nail Polishes that came out in the ‘Fall 2016 Back to School’ collection. It’s a deep, navy blue with a quite usual finish… These nail polishes are called Candy Gloss Nail Tints, because they are jelly...

Mani Monday! ‘My Private Jet’ by OPI on my nails this week

First of all, let’s all just ignore the fact that it’s Tuesday and the title of this post is ‘Mani Monday’, ok? I meant to post this yesterday obviously, but life got a little bit in a way. So Mani Monday on a Tuesday it is! 😀 Secondly, I finally got my gel polish removed. Yay! You might have seen this post where I showed you my silver holographic gel nails, which I loved! Even though I love the effect of gel, I feel that having it on for too long isn’t that great for your nail beds. It makes...

Sale alert! 4 Zoya nail polishes for $15 shipped

I’m here with another great deal! First off, I’m proud to say that in 2015 I did not buy any new nail polishes. Woohoo! I had way too many, went through my collection and gave a lot away to friends. My stash is now pretty decent (I still have way too many polishes that a normal human being needs, but you know how it goes…lol), but it’s 2016 now and I feel like it’s ok for me to buy nail polish again. 😀 My first stop is Zoya’s website! Now through January 13 you can buy any 4 full-sized nail...

Mani Monday! Christmas Silver Glitter Nails by OPI

Mani Monday! This post is a little late in the day, because I just got back from 3 days in Vegas. I still wanted to have this up today, because I want to show you what’s on my nails and there’s no better day to do it than on Mani Monday. 😀 I hope everyone had a nice Christmas. I sure did! Like I said, we went to Vegas for a couple of days and it was just as I imagined! As you might know I lived there for a while, so I was happy to go back to my...

On My Nails: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in the shade ‘Purplexed’

Happy Saturday, everyone! 🙂 Today I’m showing you what’s on my nails right now. I haven’t been painting my nails that often lately, because of all packing and unpacking of boxes I’ve been doing (we moved to another city not that too long ago). But now that we’re settled in (not completely, but we’re getting there!), I thought it would be a good time to give my nails some TLC. I used Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel, which is a gel polish. The great thing about gel polish is that it is said to stay on you nails for 14 days...

What happens when you get gel nails for too long…

Since the beginning of this year, I’ve been wearing gel polishes on my nails. These are long-lasting polishes cured under UV lamps. After almost 6 months I’ve finally gotten them removed and now I’ve literally forgotten how to paint my own nails! I’m not even kidding, guys. 😀 I was getting gel (also known as ‘Shellac’) done at a nail salon and whenever the new growth hit a certain length (when it just didn’t look presentable anymore), I got them redone. This was normally after a month or two (or three). This is when I went back and got yelled...

Mani Monday! OPI Louvre Me Louvre Me Not

It’s ManiMonday! Last time I showed you my nails was right before our Hawaii vacation in March. I’d been wearing the same gel nail polish (in ‘Strawberry Margarita’) for almost 3 months. Boring, huh? I know. I just love that color, it’s one of my alltime faves! This past Friday I decided to switch it up though…it was definitely time for something different. I had it removed at a salon and replaced with some fresh paint. This time I went for a gorgeous purple, also a gel polish and also by OPI. 🙂 This is OPI ‘Louvre Me Louvre Me...

Mani Monday! OPI Strawberry Margarita is my new nail obsession

It has been forever since I’ve last showed you my nail color! I’ve barely been painting my nails and when I do, it’s usually a boring color that doesn’t deserve a mention in my opinion. However, I REALLY like the nail polish I have on now. So in stead of Makeup Monday, today it is… Mani Monday! 🙂 ​ ​​​ This is OPI Strawberry Margarita, a polish that was released with OPI’s 2006 Mexico collection. Luckily, it’s now part of OPI’s classics line. 🙂 I love it! It’s a classic bright pink creme polish with a little bit of a...

10 nail art ideas for the Holidays (by Daisy)

Looking for cute nail art ideas to spice up your nails for the Holidays? I know, I am! I haven’t been feeling that creative when it comes to my nails. I don’t know what exactly to do, my nails are short and the biggest reason: I’m not that great at nail art. I never know what design to do and most of the time I don’t have the patience to wait for the polishes to dry. Fortunately, I know somebody who’s awesome at doing nail designs, my cousin Daisy! She has short nails like I do, but yet does the...
