One (woho) coat of H&M - On Ice. I like. It's a really light pastelly blue.
Lookit, the adorable bottle :) Too bad I didn't get my hands on the other one.
Then I thought "hey, I don't play with my crackles enough. I have 5 of 'em and 5 fingers on this hand. Why not try 'em all?" So I did. Which was a fail since I forgot I own 6 crackles lol. But the one I forgot is a white one so it wouldn't have been much fun anyways. From left to right: Isadora - Black Tag, Subway Green, Masterpiece Pink, Depend - 5010 & 5002. And a coat of TC on top. Sorry the photo is out of focus... Anyways, I liked this mani, twas fun!
Hellu and Merry Christmas!
Oops a bit late. I've been really busy hanging out with my family the past couple of days. We had a really nice Christmas Eve and I got a lot of super nice gifts! Unfortunately I've come down with a cold so I'll have to rest the next couple of days but I should post some pics tomorrow. Yesterday I went to the sale and bought 8 nail polishes :P
I got a comment from Chaosophia asking about the dance pic from my previous post so I thought I could tell you a little about it. What I dance is called American Tribal Style (ATS) and it's a relatively new dance style with influences from belly dance and flamenco. It's improvised and when we dance we follow one person who gives us signs so we know what steps we're gonna do. It's really fun and nice since you don't have to memorize a choreography. There are slow as well as fast steps. It's pretty cool because if you know the same steps as someone else you can dance together, even if you've never danced together before. I went to belly dance classes for two semesters when I was in high school but I like ATS better. I started dancing this april so I haven't been doing it for that long but it's something I think I'll continue with for much longer :)
Here's a nice video of some really talented ATS dancers :)
The bf says I've been slacking with my posting so here's a little post at least. It's a busy time now, tomorrow is Christmas Eve! Yesterday me and the bf made two sorts of candy at my mom's place :) I've also been to a little party with my dance friends aka my tribe 8)
I sponged on some Victoria's Secret - Lovelight on E.L.F. - Dark Navy. I had to include the whole bottle since it is pretty funny. Not to store though...
I liked this mani but the pics didn't turn out all that.
I've been having some problems with my blog subscription list. I began following a couple of more blogs recently and they're supposed to be added there automatically. I've added them "manually" there two times since they disappeared from the list. But now they're still not there. It's pretty annoying. I don't wanna miss posts because they're not there :/ Has anyone had this problem?
Today I have another of my E.L.F.s to show you.
One coat of E.L.F. - Dark Navy. It looks pretty sparkly in the photos but it wasn't all that visible in normal light. I liked that it was a one coater but since I had a pretty thick coat it wouldn't dry -.-
I wish it would've been as sparkly as it looks here in the bottle... But it's still a pretty dark blue color.
I recently won my first giveaway, from Nihrida :) If you want a really nice swatch of it here's her post about it. I wasn't going to paint my nails til the bf got back with the camera but I got bored and changed my nail polish and did some nail art as well :P So there is a bit of tip wear since I didn't take pics of it until after a few days. Ah well! Since animal print was up that's what I did :)
This is three coats of Constance Carroll - Apricot Sun. It was easy to apply and dried really fast despite the three coats so that was really nice :)
The grey is Depend - 206 and the black is China Glaze - Liquid Leather.
I present to you day 6 of the 14 Day Challenge: stripes.
A bit messy since I did it before school :P The stripes are made with regular tape and striping tape.
The green is China Glaze - Starboard, the red is 108 Degrees and the gold is H&M - 70s Boho. The base is E.L.F. - White.
I did a simpler look on my right hand.
I'll have to do another stripe mani soon since I wasn't totally pleased with this one. I wanted it to be Christmassy but it mostly made me think of Italy and Super Mario lol. I was going to do some nail art and stuff today since I don't have any school but the bf is away with his camera so that will have to wait. The next one up is animal print so that will be fun :)
A couple of days ago I got my package from E.L.F. I got an email that they had free shipping + free mystery gift. Ofc I had to get on that lol.
My mystery gift + an eyeliner in Exotic Green, which I tried this weekend and liked.
Lots of stuff in it :P I think I'm going to try some of the eyeshadows today since I'm going to a dance show :)
I think I might have a growing obsession with lipsticks on the way lol. Altho I won't use them very often :P The black one is from their mineral line in Ripe Rose and the other is from the regular line and is called Sociable. I wore the latter one already and liked it :)
Today I did some polka dot nails :) I had the previous mani on for 3 days since I didn't have time to change it :O All chipped and what not so now my mind is soothed with this fun mani!
I started out with two coats of Isadora - Star Glaze. It's a shimmery light silver. If I hadn't covered it with dots I would've done a third coat since it is quite sheer. The dots are E.L.F. - Dark Navy and Sunset which arrived yesterday. I'll have to show what else was in the package some other day :)
I think it looks cutest from a little further away :)
A happy mani! Which is fitting I think since it's Friday today :) Next mani up is stripes!
Just showing you what I did with the gradient the second day I wore it.
Striping tape and a coat of China Glaze - Branding Iron. This photo made me realize I should've covered the index instead since it has some tipwear. Ah well :P
Yesterday I went to work out for the first time in over a month. Yey me! And I can still use my legs lol.
Today is dance class and after that I'm going to the library since it's "knitting café". A fun day! :)
Finally some more nails! Today is Gradient nails, which I really like. I thought these turned out pretty good altho I think I like my previous gradient better actually... Anyways I wanted to try another color scheme so I went for pink to yellow in mostly neon colors.
The base color is two coats of Depend - 34. A nice pink neon that unfortunately had dried and was a goopy stringy mess! -.- I thinned it a bit so we'll see if that helps the next time... Then I sponged on Color Club - Amp'd Up, Koo Koo Cachoo, China Glaze - Sun Worshipper and Color Club - Almost Famous. I finished with a coat of the CC fast drying top coat that came in the rainbow set. It aint no SV that's for sure!
I feels like a little bit of summer on my nails at least :)
Next one up is Polka Dots, which I've been meaning to do for a while so that's nice :)
I just had to post because this is my 100th post! That was fast! Or it felt fast at least. Yesterday I finished with my nail wheels and counted my polishes. Crazily enough they were exactly 100 (except for basecoats, topcoats and crackles)... So I felt that was a sign for me to post lol. Also yesterday I found out that I passed my last exam (sista salstentan) boooyah! So to celebrate I give to you a crazy OOTD.
This is how weird I really am haha.
And here's what the clothes looked like if anyone's still here after that first freaky pic ;) I bought the dress in Spain when we went there with our spanish group in 2004 so it's been around for a while... Gotta love stretch! x)
I'm progressing slowly with my 14 day challenge... I did my nails this morning since I didn't really like the metallic mani but I'll show you those some other day. Tonight I really should do some rainbow nails :P But I felt like posting something so this is another random post.
I ordered some nail wheels from Ebay and they arrived this week. I'm not done yet since I need to write numbers on them and I don't have a good pen for that but it was fun painting them :) So many purdy colors! :D
Mah yarn haul from Klippans Yllefabrik 8) What a magical place! ;)
Eeek so pretty! Imagine having all those colors on your nails too ;) I just couldn't resist them and they will make a damn fine sweater/cardigan/bolero/whatever some day! :D
Number 2 in the 14 day challenge is metallic nails. I can't say I was very pleased with these so I'll just have to try harder for the rainbow nails ;)
The greenish color is Depend - 1038. A pretty old one that I got from my sister. It says 06/07 on the bottle so I guess it's from that year. And also it has balls in it which none of my other Depends have. Pretty nice me thinks. The one that looks like copper on my ring finger is Victoria's Secret - Lovelight. Both were two coats.
And then I thought hey, I need to practise my stamping. Which as you can see, I still do lol. Anyways it's stamped with China Glaze - Wagon Trail. I think I might need to get some special stamping polishes and see if that's easier.
With flash so you can see the base colors a bit better.
Today I've been yarn shopping with mah yarn (and polish!) loving friend :) Yey us! I managed to not go completely crazy this time lol. Today is also dance time and after that I might attempt the rainbow nails... Hihi.
