Girly Nail Art

Hey lovelies!

How are you all? ♥

Today, I'm having this verbal test in business English, and I just hope everything will go well. Not that it's hard, but I fear that I'll have some blackout and forget the words. But, I shall not worry about it. I hardly think one could actually fail it. :D

Another thing I've been concentrating lately, is getting rid of clutter. Both real life as well as on my laptop. I recently realized my hard drive was only having 18% space left, so now I'm going through some serious clean up there as well. I kinda hoped I could just leave the cleaning to closet and the little everyday cleaning, but no. I feel like I have to organize and re-organize every single thing. But that might be a good thing, right?

So, today's post is about (besides my blabbering) nails. I have two pretty nice manicures to share with you, both probably in top 10 of my manicures ever! :) If you want to learn something about my nail art, see here and here for tutorials. And remember, you can always wish for another one, I'm happy to make them for you. ;)

The first manicure is done with this gorgeous hologram polish from Make Up Store. It looks very neutral and sandy in the bottle, but once on your nails, it has the most fabulous holo effect in every color. I thought a caviar ring finger in metallic pastel shades would compliment it well, and because I always have to add everything possible to every manicure, I put a piece of striping tape across every nail. It's still pretty simple, and looking at this now, I think I need to do and interpretation of this soon. ;)

And one picture in daylight. I was seriously taking too many photos of this because I liked it so much!

The other mani is more colorful and maybe less elegant, but it was so much fun to create. ;)

Cupcake nails! For some idiotic reason this blogger was dumb enough to not take many different pictures of these nails... Oh well. Luckily this picture shows everything about the mani, so you're not missing out. I've been asked to do a tutorial of these babies, so that's something I need to work on this weekend. And sorry about the misshaped thumb nail, it had a little accident but I didn't want to cut it down.

So, here are the manicures this time. I hope you liked them!

Are these manicures something you might try out? And is there a manicure you would like to see from me? Let me know in the comments! ♥ 

That's all for now, but I'll try to write something new pretty soon. I have a feeling I might even get to write a makeup review post this week, if everything goes as planned. ;)

Have a lovely week!

  3. Ihana toi ensimmäinen toi caviar kynsi on huikee! Mistä ostit noita palloja siihen? :D Jotain mitä vois kokeilla jollain pidemmällä lomalla kun tässä ammatissa ei saa käytää kynsilakkaa ollenkaan eikä pitkiä kynsiä kun ne on niin suuria bakteeripesäkkeitä, höh D: mutta ihania ovat! Oot taitava Johanna :)

    1. Noi tossa näkyvät on MUA Cosmeticsilta, Nail Constellation ja sävy Gemini. Mutta varsinkin yksivärisinä samoja saa hyvään hintaan esim. Ihanat Kynnet -verkkokaupasta. Ja ehdottomasti kannattaa kyllä lomalla koittaa, on suhteellisen helppo operaatio - YouTube on varustettu hyvillä video-ohjeilla - ja itse muistaisin noiden kanssa sen että monet päällyslakat liuottavat noista helmistä väriä irti, tehden pinnasta muutenkin hassun, eli kaviaarin päälle ei sitä lakkaa kannata laittaa ;) ♥ Kiitos kommentistasi taas, ihana ♥

  4. I need to de-clutter my life too! I've been throwing so much out.
    Love the first nails. The beaded texture looks so perfect.

    1. De-cluttering is such a necessity for me. It makes everything seem so much simple. :) And somehow throwing out stuff makes me feel better at the moment than buying stuff. Maybe it's because this way the stuff that'll stay will actually have proper space to be. ♥

    1. Thank you Kim, now that I got yours as well, I need to hunt down a card for you ;) My computer was having these difficulties with everything because there was only 18% storage space left. Luckily I figured out what to do and got it doubled in no time. But I still need to work on that a bit. ;) ♥

    1. Well, they're not as hard as they might look like ;) Especially the first one. And I'll be doing a tutorial for the latter, so I think soon you would definitely have the skills, too ♥
