Perfect Sand - S74

Today I want to show you another one of the Perfect Sand polishes I got from Bulgaria.

S74 is a pink texture polish with big pink and silver glitters. It's from Perfects Sand collection.
It was really easy to apply, it was opaque after only 2 coats and the drying time was great. All in all a great nail polish. If you haven't tried the Perfect brand I would really recommend that you do, because they are fantastic polishes at a very small price.

No top coat was applied for the photos.

What a beauty!

I tried taking some pictures in sunlight, but they aren't very good if I have to say so myself, but you get them anyway because they show the true color a little better than the pictures in the shade.

I bought this polish at They cost 1.85 a piece so it's difinitely a good price.

Yesterday we were at a Volbeat concert in Herning (Jyske Bank Boxen) and it was soo awesome!

If you don't know Volbeat you should check out their website and find some of their songs and hear. It's a heavy metal band, but they are influenced by 50's and 60's rock like Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash. They are just awesome! And the leadsinger Michael just have the most unique and amazing voice!

Some of my favorite songs are: Lonesome Rider, Maybellene I Hofteholder and Still Counting.

Anyway I painted my nails for the occasion ofcourse. It was very simple though since I didn't have much time to do it.

I started out with a black/silver and black glitter gradient. Then I painted the letter V O L B E A T in white on 7 of my finger and then I went over the white with a neon yellow. I wasn't quite satisfied with it, but I had to get out of the door so that was what it could be.

The neon yellow actually glowed in the blacklights!

One of the thump so you can see the gradient.

What do you think?

Movember Nails

It's the time of year where men all over the world are letting their beard grow and women har painting moustaches on their nails. It's Movember. But what does that actually mean? Why do we "celebrate" Movember? Do people actually know? I tried asking a few people and while they were aware that it's "some sort of awareness for mens cancer" they couldn't quite put their finger on what kind of cancer "mens cancer" is. So for the people out there who's not quite sure why it's Movember here goes:

Movember (a portmanteau word from moustache and November) is an annual, month-long event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer and other male cancers; and associated charities. The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at The goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health."

Today I want to show you the design I made for Movember.

I painted my ring- and middelfinger with OPI - Gargantuan Green Grape and the rest of them with OPI - Ogre-The-Top Blue. I was actually a bit suprised when I applied those 2 because they were nothing like most of the other OPI's I have. They both had a very thin/watery formula which also made them more sheer. GGG took 4 coats to get opaque and OTTB took 3. The drying time was great though, so it wasn't a big problem that they needed more coats.

I chose to do only one moustache on the middlefinger and then doing the blue bow for prostate cancer on my ringfinger, since this comes close to my heart. My father-in-law died 7 years ago after loosing the fight against prostate cancer.

For the rest of the fingers I chose make dots.

I hope you like the design.

Election Nails

So yesterday it was election day here in Denmark where we had to vote for the city counsil and the regional counsil and the nails ofcourse had to match *giggles*

I made a very simple mani since I wasn't feeling well...

I started out painting my nails white with OPI - Alpine Snow and then I gave all of them a thin layer of Essie - Pearly White to give it that shimmery shine. Then I made a bit of "art" on my ring fingers and gave the rest of the fingers a layer of Wet n' Wild, Wild Shine - Sparked to make it sparkly and finished off with a layer of top coat. Unfortunately the top coat smudged the ringfinger a little bit.

Let me know what you think :)

Perfect Sand - S76

Today I want to show you one of the polishes I just got from Bulgaria.

S76 is a dusty blue polish with big pieces of silver glitter from the brand Perfect from their Sand collection. It is, as the name states, a sand/texture polish. It reminds me a lot of OPI's Liqiud Sands, not only in finish, but also quality. It was really nice to apply and had a great drying time. To get it opaque I used 3 coats, but it was almost there at 2.

It's a very pretty color, but it's a little difficult to capture the right color in pictures. Sometimes it looked purple or grey, so it took me a while to get some that was closest to the actual color.

Have look:

Galaxy Nails

Ok, so today I want to show you my very first try at making galaxy nails.

I have seen this design many times, but I haven't really dared to try it out, but now was the time and I'm really satisfied with the design, but I think I need to make it again at some point :)

I found a lot of tutorial on youtube with lots of different ways to make it and colors to make it with, but I ended up using this one from ZombieKitty Nail Art which was very easy to follow, but had a lot of colors that gave a very nice look to it. I added a bit of stars to it though.
I used nail polish for all of it except the stars where I used white acrylic paint.

The pictures was taken shortly after the sun had come out, so thats why they look a little red-ish

The thump got a little nick after they where finished, but I actually don't think you notice that much. it could almost be a part of the design. *giggles*

After looking at these pictures I realised how dry my cuticles look because I'm not good at remembering to give them oil and cream, so now I have started an intense treatment to moist them up again, and try to be better at taking care of them.

Oh and today I got a haul of Perfect Sand polishes from Bulgaria (bought them here) that I'm really excited to show you :-D

There might be a review on one of them tomorrow (sunday).

OPI - Pussy Galore

Today it's time for a liquid sand polish

I am very much in love with OPI's liquid sand polishes. I my opinion some of the prettiest sand polishes there is, mostly because I really love that they get a bit of a matte look when they dry up, unlike fx China Glaze's which I'm not that crazy about. There are a few of OPI's that I'm not a big fan of though, like some of the first ones from the Mariah Carey collection. Not that they aren't pretty, but I don't like the formulas, the opacity and the drying time. Anyway, I am a big fan of the Bond Girls (except for Vespar, but more on that in a later post).

Pussy Galore is a baby pink liquid sand polish with some darker pink micro glitters from OPI's Bond Girls collection. It has a great formula,it dries up fairly quick and it was almost opaque in 2 coats, although I did put on a third, just to make it totally opaque.

I didn't use top coat for this one.

I have never really been that excited about baby pink, but this polish is just so darn beautiful, that I can't help myself :)

I couldn't quite seem to capture the darker pink glitters in the photos, but I promise you they are there.

Nail art designs

Today I wanna show you some old nail art designs I made.

The first one I made a day I was a little bored at home. The background is Essie - The More The Merrier and I don't remember which ones I used for the flowers, but there's a little of Loréal - Confetti at the edges.

This one I made for my niece's 5th birthday. She's very girly and loves to wear nail polish aswell, so I thought a Barbie design would be fitting :) I found a design online that I used for inspiration.
For the background I used OPI - Pink-ing of You that I got with their "Pink of Hearts" set which was there breast cancer awareness "collection" for the year. The glitter on the little finger is the other polish from that set: OPI - More Than A Glimmer. The rest is made with various polishes and rhinestones. The shoe on the thumb is China Glaze - C-C-Courage.

This design I made for me and my husbonds 2nd wedding anniversary.
I had just made my nails almond shaped, so I wanted to use the form and I figured that they were almost heart-shaped in them self, so I just used the shape. The pink is again Pink-ing of You and the red is a polish from Mamhattan with 1 coat of China Glaze - Ruby Pumps to make it shine. I think the gold is one I bought cheap in Netto called Decor.

The last one for now I made when I went to help my brother paint his appartment. Fitting isn't it? ;)
The black is Wet n' Wild - Ebony hates Chris and the white is OPI - Alpine Snow.

That's all for now. I hope you liked them.

Orly - Miss Conduct

Today I have a very pretty polish to show you.

Miss Conduct is a beautiful dark pink polish with a bit of a scattered holo effect *drool* from Orly's Naughty or Nice collection from christmas 2012. It's one of the prettiest polishes I own and I loooooove to wear it (ok I might sound a little too enthusiastic, but I really do!). I'm in general a sucker for pink, so this polish just rocks my world!

It has a great formula and it's easy to apply. Only minus is that it takes 3 coats to get totally opaque, but I can live with that because it's quick to dry, so it's not a big problem in my eyes.

Today we actually had a bit of sunshine here, so I had a chance so show the beautiful holoeffect.

I used 1 layer of top coat for the photos.

Isn't it just soooo pretty?!?

a england - Lady of the Lake

Today I have another review for you.

This time its a england - Lady of the Lake which is a dusty dark purple with a very subtle holo effect and it's simply gorgeous. I really love it!
The formula is great to work with, it only takes 2 coats to get opaque and it has an excellent drying time. Such a great polish.

I have really lost my heart to a england polishes. They have the most beautiful colors and I am definitely going to buy many, many more to show you.

Time for picture *Yay!*

I used 1 coat of top coat to make it shine a little more.

Unfortunately I didn't catch the holo effect that well in the pictures since I didn't have much sun to work with.
