Models Own - Purple Passion

Still haven't been able to work out the order to models own, but fortunately this store called Seppälä sells those gorgeous polishes. Though I won't buy anymore from there because I want to buy from their own site! It will become cheaper :)

But apparently, when they have that "get 5 polishes, save £7", you won't get that if you use the 30% off coupon! I'm pissed.

But onto the mani. Here is at first only the Purple Passion

It is a bit too bright in the picture, and with a top coat. Without a topcoat, it dried kinda matte, though it was beautiful too. I took some photos before applying the topcoat, but it was night and our lightning is very bad then to took polish pictures!!

But how was the application? Perfect! No more than 2 coats, maybe 1 with steady hand :) Soooo pretty! I'm totally pissed about the fact that I'm not capable for some reason to order anything from Models Own website. But! I will be patient, and try again and again, until it works!! This polish sealed the deal.

Have to say that I've mentioned couple of times about the nail art polishes black and white which I ordered from different place than the other colours. Well that didn't work out! BUT, I was absolutely happy when I found this from a supermarket

Jeij!! The brand is apparently Kiss and they work just fine! And look what came with the package

Evil Angel from Black nail polish and lip gloss showed similar to these nail art decal stencils.

Check it out.

You just stick the decal onto your nail, and apply the polish you want the pattern to show with. Very easy, although my stickers are a bit thin, so they might rip easily. Have to be careful!

Ofcourse I immediately had to try these, and just without any planning, it turned to be like this

(oh my god how hidious my cuticles are...)

First I only did my thumb to see te results, and I liked it. Later the same night, after a glass of redwine, I did the rest of the hand

I didn't have my polishremover with me, so when the decal was too stained to do more those, I changed to another one and did with that the pinky and the index. Cross tips with the new silver nail art polish, and ring and middle needed some lines with the new black nail art polish!
Love the design :)

I believe those polishes and decals will be in lots of use! I'm already thinking what to wear the next weekend!!

See you soon!

Some old and dark

Hey! Now that there is few posts between these, I can post another half-and-half mani :D

I think it was a sunny day when I made this.. I started with this gorgeous dark grey holo from Golden Rose. Color 119. Very beautiful and easy to apply!

And to spice it up, here is what I came up with

Depend black polish which includes pink and green shimmer! The polish number has disappeared from the bottle!! Apparently that happens all of them :/

And here you can see how gorgeous the holo-effect actually is

Loved the design, but when there was no sun occasionally, it was a bit too dark. But again, maybe later when the sun is more likely shining!

And now I need some help!!

I tried to order some nailpolishes from models own, and use my 30% off coupon. But when I have all of the polishes in font of me, and start to click on them and add to my cart, at some point it just throws me to their front page, and my cart is empty. And that happened many times, after I've chosen like 8 polishes. Totally frustrating!!

Have any of you had the same problem? How could I fix this? And is the models own page slow to you too? Because for me it is. I would appreciate any help here, because those colors are so gorgeous!

If you can help me, thank you so much!!

Tequila Sunrise

Well hello dears! How is it going? Just a quick post of one of the last weeks mani, which took its inspiration... Tattadadaaa! Title says it already :)

So I was very eager to try China Glaze Solar Power polish, which came from Evil Angel's shop couple of weeks ago. Very pretty shimmery sunshine yellow that would definately look amazing in the sun. I didn't have the opportunity with the sun when I was wearing this but definately will try again in summer! It will shine like a sun!!

I love it!

And just to mention, my nails are starting to be quite a nice lenght. For me! Others might like longer, others shorter, but I think this is good for me. I'm just a bit afraid.. My summerjob is in a cemetery and I do gardening stuff that is needed there!! Oh my dear nails :/

But the sunrise!

It could have been better (a lot!) but I can't remember why I didn't do it right. Well, I'll try it again in summer and make the color changing more smooth. Not so töks. And never mind the stain, the sponge kinda slipped. IMO those colors are very nice together, because of the shimmer overload! The red is Lumene Primrose Path.

And by the way, there in the middle finger you can see the shimmer of the Solar Power!! Gorgeous!

Back from the road trip!! Yesterday we drove with my friend to Helsinki and back, because we had to drop her university-getting-in-architectury-pre-work-thing... (?) :D And we also did some shopping there! Great trip :)

But what's whit the title? Well right now, when I'm not in school or anything, almost the only thing that gets me out of the building every day, is coaching. I am a swimming coach, and my swimmers are from the age 11 to the age 16. Boys and girls. And last saturday we had competition!

Of course I had to make some swimming related nails!! :)

Do you know the swimmingsuit manufacturer Speedo?
Photo is from here

They are our sponsor, so the logo is in our t-shirts and accessories. The base color is bright blue, and the text is white. So simply enough, I transferred them to my nails

The outcome is a bit messy, but the point was just to get it roughly. You still get the point!
I used the blue part Depend and I believe it's 41. The text is almost gone. I'm so sad they don't have names to the polishes! Depend is soooo great bränd! Application is awesome, the colorselection is enoughly good, and they don't cost much! Have to get some more.

The Speedo texts I made using some french manicure set white and a thin brush. I still don't have nail art polishes in black and white!! Damn.

But I received a lot complimets with these nails :) That made me very happy!

So today I have read, and am planning to do so again, but needed a little break :) An what would be better break than posting and reading all the posts that have came during the night? Nothing!

I'm bringing something from the near past, some testing with couple of blues I have.

Apparently I don't have the swatch from the polish I started with, but it is Mavala Tropique. Very easy and nice polish that dries super quickly! I think I have 2 coats here, and it is enough. Boring on its own, so I added this half mani with Natural Code Live It Up (which I have to make a comparison with those new ones I had last week, Finger Paints and Savvy) . After that I covered the line with Art Club Midnight Blue.

I think I'm a bit stuck with that design. Did the same with blacks and reds! Not one after another, but they all are in my archive waiting to be post, and I believe it would look stupid if I post them one after the other. Although, why does it matter? They still look completely different. Especially the black one! Loved it!

And back to study!
