Tis been a while etc etc…

So my plan backfired…lol I thought I´d have time and inspiration to get back here but it has taken me a coupple of months. Sowwy! 😉 So last time I promised to show something from the new stuff I got from Kiko´s in Paris. Here´s my latest nails where I used color nr 373 from Kiko over the entire nail and just added a lil spark on the outer/upper corner. Such a easy way to add a little zazz on an ordinary polish! Hope you´ll enjoy! And that you missed me! ;P

Nails of the week; Gradient Glitter

So I know it’s been awhile…. The thing is that I got this marvellous offer to go back to my old makeup school but this time as a teacher trainee! Yay! This means that my time is very very limited between that and my danceclasses and everything… Well for now I’ll leave you with this weeks nails that I made with a glitter polish and Seche Vite top coat. Easy and fast was just what I needed today! 😉

Nails of the week; Guilty Glitters

Today was at the salong to refill my acrylic. My plan was to keep the nail bare afterwards, since it´s been so long since I was without nailpolish. However, the nail technicians where I do my nails are fast as heck and very good in price all though if you get the “wrong” one of them the result aint exactly at its best… Today I got the “wrong” one… So no bare nails for me this time arround! 😉 I covered the little flaws up with a new glitter polish that comes with a small brush for naildecorations. I just painted over and over until I covered the entire nail. Still kinda neutral but with a fun bling! 🙂 I really like this glitter because of its different sized glitter, makes a nice variation and depth to the nail.

Crafty Friday Eve-DIY bangles

I felt creative this eve! It was a long time ago since I crafted due to the lack of creativity… But this eve I suddenly felt an urge to do something about my old silverbangles that I never use cuz i don´t like silver that much… Sooo…I brought out my hobby paint in gold, antique gold and bronze from my crafting cabinet (yes I do have an entire cabinet with crafting thingies, I don´t know how anyone can live without such things as gluegun, crystal gun, giftpapers and strings in an endless variety of colours and textures, beads, seaquins etc etc etc) that I used when I repainted a tray and candlesticks a while ago.

The tray and some of the candlesticks.

Then I painted some bangles in these different goldtones. I also painted a wider bracelet as I seldome use it only because it´s silvercoloured…

The bangles on drying.

I used a small papercup to hold the bigger bracelet when drying.

I also made a few other bangles of my old plain silverbangles. These ones is nice both alone and together with others. I love stacking bangles on my arms! The sound they make has always been a sound I liked, just like when spring comes and you can hear your high heels against the pavement! 🙂

From upper left there is;
-Two plain bangles that I tied together with gold and red wire, using three different kinds of red sequins to create life and vibrance.
-Four plain bangles that I “braided” with a dark brown leatherthread. I used three coppercoloured beads to get a variaty and unexpected element, I also dapped gold colour over the bracelet to create a “rougher” look.
-One bangle that I wrapped a gold wire arround using different pearls in white and pink as well as buttons in the same colour scheme for a girly flirty look.

Bottom row from left;
-Three plain bangles that I wrapped a gold lace arrond and finnished off with a big bow. This lace has a wire at the ends so it´s good for shaping, like doing bows and such.
-Two plain bangles that I wrapped a suede band arround and finnished off with a tassel. This one is my favourite since I love the colour of the suede and I LOVE tassels!

Which one, if any, would you wear?

Veckans naglar

Då var det dags för veckans naglar igen! Lövly! Denna gång kände jag för lite mörkare lack då jag haft naglarna ljusa rätt länge. Självklart dekorerade jag dem med lite bling även denna gång! 😉

Jag har målat mina naglar med ett lack från Make Up Store som heter Congo och tyvärr inte längre finns i deras sortiment. 😦 Lacket är djupt mörkbrunt med diskret guld/brons skimmer i. En riktig hit och ett av mina favoritlack! Efter två lager som jag låtit torka ordentligt har jag satt små ofärgade stenar på en rad från nagelbandet till toppen på den yttre delen av nageln. Det lite trixiga är att få stenarna i jämna rader med lika mellanrum… Om man tittar noga har jag nog lyckats lite sisådär men det är ju sällan man verkligen granskar naglarna när man väl är klar. Ovanpå stenarna (och självklart resten av nageln) har jag avslutat med ett överlack. Denna gång blev det Dry fast top coat från Seche Vite. Och ja, jag kan bara sälla mig till miljarder andra kvinnor (och män) som världen över rosar detta överlack. Detta är verkligen det bästa överlack som jag provat. Nagellacket torkar fort och ytan blir slät och härligt högglansig. Dessutom tycker jag att nagellacken håller sig snygga lite längre när jag använt detta överlack till skillnad från andra. Det var ett tag sedan jag använde detta överlack nu och jag blev tom överraskad på nytt över hur bra det är! När det kom har jag för mig att det var lite trixigt att få tag på men idag finns det på Kicks, Åhléns och liknande för ca 99 kr. Woop woop!

Pöss på er!
