Darling pink.

I don't really know what I think about this polish. Can you even see it on my fingers? I'll have to try it in the winter as well when I'm pale again. (Boh!) The polish is Hello Kitty by H&M - Darling Pink.

This is two coats with SV. Application was nice tho.

Haha yeah. It only cost me 10 SEK so that was nice! :)

Also yesterday was package day, yey!

I ordered some other stuff from ELF as well that didn't look fun enough to be in a photo ;p

In an hour I'm going to the gym to try Yoga for the first time. I'm hoping it will be fun :)

Another tag.

I read this tag over at Kayla Shevonne http://kaylashevonnebeauty.blogspot.com/2011/08/tag-post-15-weird-facts.html and thought it was fun. So today will be a nail free post :O

1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?
They have different names for me actually. One is Dockan (The doll) which my dad used to call me when I was little because he thought I looked like a doll. And then a lot of others, my dad is really good at giving nick names :D

2. What's a weird habit of yours?
When I'm alone in the laundry room in the basement I always think of zombies and scare myself lol. I hate being down there alone! I often think about what it would be like if there was a zombie attack. Too many books and movies for me!

3. Do you have any weird phobias?
I'm afraid of dolls. Like big ones that are supposed to look real. And the ones in stores.
A crappy pic of me posing with the Samuel L. Jackson wax doll. You can't see it because I'm smiling but I was scared lol.

4. What's a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you're alone?
Tina Turner - Goldeneye. Altho it's not really a secret because I've belted it out together with the roomie as well. You should try it sometime!

5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
Greed. If that can be called a pet peeve. Anyways I have so many lol.

6. What's one of your nervous habits?
Hmm.. I don't really know. Depends on what I'm nervous about. Sometimes I get really warm.

7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
The right side.

8. What was your first stuffed animal and its name?
A white and pink bear called Ninnitinn. I got her from my cousins, who lived in the US at the time, when I was born.

9. What's the drink you always order at Starbucks?
Yeah I live in Sweden ;) I usually order water or soda when I go to places like that.

10. What's a beauty rule you always preach, but never actually practice?
I don't think I have any beauty rules.. O.o At least not any that I preach but don't practice.

11. Which way do you face in the shower?
Both. But not at the same time ;p

12. Do you have any weird body skills?
I can open bottle caps (I think that's what you call 'em) with my teeth but I'm not allowed to lol.

13. What's your favorite comfort food that's "bad", but you love to eat anyway?
Candy? I love candy. That's not really food but if I'm down it's what I'll want! :p

14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?
Hmm.. I usually get some phrase stuck in my head and say it for a month but if it is a word I always use then hm.. Probably my favorite adjective: fett. Lol. It means fat. But probably more like phat ;p

15. Time to sleep - what are you actually wearing?
Nothing, that's the comfiest. Altho sometimes if I'm cold I'll wear socks.

Cudos to the people who read it ;) And you should do it too!
Bonus rainbow :p Yesterday I organized my stockings. These are the bright ones that I thought should be in this order hoho. I counted them and I have 31 nylon stockings. Oops lol ;)

Kind of gradient.

We all had a really good time at our friends house. The crayfish messed up my mani so there are no photos of it :p I'll have to wear the polish again so there will be pics of it. Since today is laundry day I'm going to wait until we're done before I paint my nails but I have a mani from a couple of weeks ago so I have something to post 8) I was feeling in the mood for colors and thought I'd try sponging a gradient. The colors aren't that similar but it turned out pretty fun at least.

The colors used are CG - Sun Worshipper, Kiwi Coolada and Towel Boy Toy.

Summery :)

Tomorrow is school time again. I'll start my 4th semester on my education. I'm excited but ofc I will be missing sleeping late ;)

Space nails and guest NOTDs.

First up in this pic-spammy post is my Space Nails. I followed this tutorial from CutePolish http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EMgt4_jW5U&list=FL73YH09TREYHr5tMQniezqA&index=1&feature=plpp

I used 7 or 8 polishes for this mani :p

Sadly I don't really think the photos do the mani justice :( It looks better IRL.

In sunlight.

When my bf saw me watching the tutorial he got interested in another of her tutorials. The newspapery one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kcdt4_5Ncc&feature=relmfu And then he said he wanted to try it on my toes. Free pedi, why not? ;)

Ofc I had to choose these cool ladies. I only did a little clean up. Didn't he do a good job? :)

And then all hell broke loose because we were bored so the bf and the roomie painted their nails. The bf wanted to try some advanced tape mani. The roomie wore CG - Sun Worshipper with SOPI - Note To Self. It sure was a fun evening 8) A lot of giggles!

I made them pose in a nerdy way. Haha. The purple on her fingers is from our Dip In-remover that's getting a bit full :P

Also, from now on he has to cut my tape strips. Look how thin they are :O

Since I already spammed a bunch of pix I might as well have one more. I actually wore make up yesterday. Since I learned the tape thing it's fun :) Now I can make straight lines, yey ;D

Today we're going to some friends to eat crayfish. Totally swedish you know. The bf made a pie and I've baked some bread. It will be delish I'm sure.

Even foxier.

The day after I wore Foxy I felt like painting my nails (big surprise hehe) so I did a tape mani again.

The grey is Depend 206 and the blue is H&Ms U Must Have This.

I liked that the grey nails were pretty subtle and the blue ones stood out a bit more :)

Tomorrow I'll show you all the awesomeness that happened yesterday on my nails 8)

China Glaze - Foxy

Here is Foxy, a really pretty polish. I was a bit distracted I guess while painting it because I only have one coat of color on the pinky and ring fingers and two coats on all the others. Haha. But you can see it as a comparison how the color improves with the second coat ;)

Much prettier with two coats :)

Not as noticeable in this photo tho.

Today I placed my first order from E.L.F.. I wasn't going to but then they extended the free shipping another day so I took that as a sign. Hehe. I actually ordered some make up as well and only three nail polishes :O So now I'm waiting for two packages, yey :)

CG - Light As Air

This was the last of my latest CGs to be tested. I liked it when it was on my nails but the application wasn't as fun. I think this was two coats. Now that I'm a bit more tan I sometimes think pastels make my cuticles look dirty. Haha. Yeye not that much.

It's a very relaxed and flattering color at least.

Bonuspic! Me and the bf at a super cool really old theatre in Side, Turkey.

Today I'm meeting my bff (giggle) and also going to the gym for the first time in a really long time.

Friday, August 19, 2011

A fail and a win.

When I got back from Turkey I was itching for something new and non-chipped on my nails. I decided to try H&Ms Moody Model since I hadn't used it yet. Sadly I didn't really like it. I thought the application was a bit weird (maybe I was a little bit rusty since I hadn't painted my nails in a week but aaaanywho...). The first layer was a bit streaky and transparent. I did two coats. SV leveled it out but I decided to tape it out a bit with China Glaze Cherish. I didn't do any clean up or anything because it didn't stay on long. Anyways here it is.

So the next day we were going out with some friends and I was going to repaint them. My outfit was all black which is really weird for me (hello, I like rainbows) and I thought I should have a bright color on my nails at least. But when I chose I went for another dark greenish polish. MNY 761 that I got from my roomie :) I really liked it!

This is two coats with SV. It went on really easy (no clean up this time either) :) A nice dark shimmery green.

Also, thanks to Honi and this tutorial http://honi.blogg.se/2011/august/tutorial-pretty-reckless.html I had make up on that I really liked! :) It was an easy way for a make up noob like myself to get a look that wasn't just some eye shadow on the lid and mascara. Yey! I will probably do it again and again :)

From a distance it looked like I had fake lashes, pretty cool. Ignore my clumsy lashes tho, haha.

Now I'm going to remove this polish and try something else :)

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Home again.

Hellu! I'm home again after a week in Turkey with my bf. We had a great time altho it was reeeaally hot. One time when we checked it was 47 degrees C (couldn't find the little circle on my keyboard, where are you?). Anywho. Kind of weird coming to a place that is 30 degrees colder just like that. I still hope we have some nice swedish summer weather left before school starts again!

I'll post some pix tomorrow or later today I think. Today I'm going to the gym to try Yoga for the first time :O I hope I like it.
And since I like pix and wouldn't mind eating some I'm posting a pic of some home made sushi!

Tomorrow me and the bf are going on vacation. I was going to paint my nails with some light color so it wouldn't be so obvious when it started chipping. I had already decided to wear CG - Light As Air but then the bf suggested I should wear a holo since we're gonna be in the sun. Of course I should wear something holo! Silly me :p So Gosh - Holographic is coming with my nails to vacation! :) I cut my nails for convinience and since I'm not used to painting short nails it's a bit sloppy 8) Aaanywho, pix!

Two coats over Depend - 223 (silver).

My index finger looks all ragged from the tie dye I did earlier this week. I should post some pix of that when I get back home. It was fun :)

See you in a week!

Recycled mani.

I managed to keep the previous mani for three days. I probably could've kept it a day or two longer but I got some things from my grandfather and one of those was a candlestick which needed a good clean. I used wire wool (according to the intarwebs that's what ya call it, svinto in swedish ofc! ;)) and my polish didn't really like that. The nice part was that the Yin&Yang stayed okay so I wanted to keep them a couple of days longer. So yesterday I painted the other fingers with Color Club - Flamboyant. I bought it at a supermarket for 20 SEK, it's a mini bottle.

Two coats plus SV.

Also, I need to practise my photographing skills a bit. Or make someone take my pics for me! Haha.

Triple rainbow!

Hellu! I was going to post pics from my recent water marble but the photos didn't come out that good so I'll save it for when I don't have anything else to post. Because today I really do have something to post! This is a mani I did yesterday and it's the nicest mani I've done so far :) I'm really going to struggle not to remove it too soon. As you know that's hard sometimes hehe ;) This is also the first time I've done a matching pedi :O

Behold! I saw this cool tutorial from Nihrida on Youtube for the Yin&Yang. 
It wasn't really hard but with practise I think it will look even better!

The rainbows are sponged and I could've gone over them one more time. Ah well :p

Toes! I'm not a zebra irl. This photo is kinda crappy but you get the idea at least. I think it's harder to paint my toes than my fingers. Do you?

Now I'm gonna sit in the park for a while. Tonight I'm going over to my mom to dye some clothes :D

I was going to post some nailz today but the weather is actually nice today so I can't sit inside all day. Since pics are fun I'm just gonna throw in a pic of an outfit I had on a couple of weeks ago. Nail polish isn't the only thing I want in every color of the rainbow... I also love stockings! I don't really like wearing pants, except shorts. But it can look nice so I accepted 2 pairs from the roomie yesterday that she didn't want anymore :p So I guess I'll be wearing some pants come fall :O

These are my favorite ones. How could they not be?
