Dripping paint nails


I've seen this nail art online for a while now. Most times people (girls) Use is to make a so called icecream manicure, With glitter, or beads as sprinkles and a brown cone or dark sauce dripping off. Even though I really like icecream that just wasn't it for me. So I searched pinterest a little more and got inspired with some awesome colour combinations and ended up with this :D

The Base is done with Collistar - 65 azzuro reflex.
The drips are done with Catrice- Miss Piggy reloaded.

I used this tutorial for it http://pinterest.com/pin/273101164876661076/

elegant graduation design

So I'm now officially graduated. Got my diploma today! YAY, now a yob

So I needed a nice many that went with my dress. (black and silver) and I have a movie night tomorrow. And the theme was historical drama. So I wanted something elegant. That would fit in a movie like pride and prejudice. So I collected my plates and my rhinestones. I polished all my nails silver with a crackle basecoat from essence. Stamped with an essence plate and black konad. And made a gradient on my accent finger. Added 3 rhinestones and places nail beads around them. I love how it turned out. What do you think?

I know it has been a while since my last post. I was doing an intern-ship that was located about 2 hours travelling from my home. So I was extremely tired and had barely any sun time to take pictures of my nails.
But I'm Graduated now. YAY And back on creating nail designs. So I'm going to try starting blogging again.

So my steel design. Created with a grey polish from WIC by herome. It was a mini so I don't know the name sorry !! On the accent finger I added 5 metal studs.
With the rough side of a kitchen sponge I stamped on two colours
Gold , salamanca WIC by herome 
And a Silverish Grey, 290 my best friends tiara - Catrice
It really gives this old looking steal effect and I''m really happy with it. 
I finished the manicure with a matt topcoat (hema) but didn't add the coat over the studs, I wanted those to stay shiney.

Hunger Games Effie Trinket nails


I'm sorry it's been so long but I started my internship 1st of march and have been bizzy!! Didn't stop polishing my nails ofcourse. But I didn't have the time to take good pictures or make posts for you guys.
I will show a month update with my phone pictures coming weak or so.
But for now my last design inspired by the nails Effie Trinket has at the reaping in the movie the Hungergames.

I added the beads cause I thought it looked pretty and just a bit more posh :P.
I know the original nails are more of a purple than a pink. But my purples are all more blueisch purple and I wanted it to fit the nice weather. Also my gold (herome's salamanca,) was a bit to dark, so I mixed it with Essence silver crackle basecoat 02 sparkling silver . And It turned out like a duochrome haha. But I liked that. But I think I should use more gold and less silver next time.

The Hunger Games

Ok to start from the beginning (cause this is going to be one of my longest blog post ever ! I'm starting with te condition of my nails. You are looking at my right hand right now. which looks quite ok. But I had to keep my nails short because of the cold weather. I've got three !! Three tears in my left hand nails *cry* But on the bright sight. There is almost no yellow staining left!! I'm for sure that my nails will look great if I would use nail whitener now :P
Hungergames flaming nails without glitter. 
Hungergames flaming nails with glitter 

and now on to the Title. The Hunger Games. I spotted this name earlier this year.  (long usless story)I've used a picture of a guy I wanted to use for a character. This guy was Chris Hemsworth. I started internet stalking the guy. Ended up watching Thor and discovered he had a younger sibling which is just as handsome! Liam hemsworth. (they also have the same laugh XD) So I watched last song. And started stalking Liam which apparently was going to play the role of Gale in the hunger games. (still didn't know what the hungergames were) a weak past and a friend of mine posted the hungergames trailer on Facebook. And I was f*cking sold. What an awesome trailer !! they told me the books where just as awesome so I decided I needed to read at least the first book befor 23st of march when the movie premier will be.  I needed less than 7 day's to finish the first book. Same for the second and I'm still buzzy with the third. (started monday) I never have red a series this fast !! I'm a huge FAN XD
Cinna's Eyeliner. (Catrice liquid eye liner) 030 I am golden Sandy
Oké so I've got some make-up inspiration from it. As first you can see my nails. They are inspired by  Katniss her interview dress/ look. There was described her teams painted flames on her nails and her dress was set with colourful crystals finishing with blue. So my nails were set on fire. (as seen on the first picture) And I have finished it with a blueish glitter (Magic Star - Gosh) and on to the next inspiration. Cinna. You have to love Cinna. He is caring a perfect listener and just plain brilliant. (and I think he's gay and I love gay men although it is never confirmed in the books)  He is an artist and I love artists and I love the casting of Lenny Kravitz to play him Although I was sure he was fair skinned :P So when I found a golden Eye-Liner in the sale box I had to buy it!! and do the Cinna look (just a plain golden eye-liner on the upper lid.) It's a quite nude style for my taste. (that is also the reason Cinna stout out as a capitol resident. Cause he wears plane/almost no make-up ) But somehow I do love it to. But I decided to try to make it a little bit more feminine. And first added a black line with my gel eyeliner (Catrice) and finished it whit a golden line (liquid eyeliner catrice)  As you can see below. I still need to practice on straight lines haha
Catrice 030 I am golden Sandy +
Catrice Gel eye liner 01 black jack with jack black 

Cinna look part two : Catrice 030 I am golden Sandy +
  Catrice Gel eye liner 01 black jack with jack black 

as finishing touch a full face picture of me with my golden cinna look and added some golden lip gloss too ! 
But I'm not the only person which is a hunger games fan. And China Glaze comes with a special Hunger Games Colours of the Capitol series. They used to have different names. (all really book inspired) but they changed it into the districts.
I want to buy at least two of the capitol colours. District 1 Luxa and lush (in the original name this one was inspired by Katniss' interview dress.)
And District 9 Harvest moon. (originally inspired by CINNA :D)
But I do love :
District 3 Riveting and District 2 Stone Cold too. So Maybe I will order all four.

It has been a while since I posted cause I've been bizzy !! I'm going on my final (graduation) intership within two weaks and I still needed to search for one !! My mom forced me to wear nude nail polish. And altough I tought I didn't have any I found I did have the most wonderfull shimmery nude I could think of. But I didn't took a picture, sorry. (it's the colour from miss sporty that I've updated in my stack posts.) My mom actually said I looked kind of naked with the nude colour XD.
My nails where badly damaged by the cold weather. So I decided I kept my nails a bit neutral for an other weak. I grabbed manhattan D96 (boring I know)
It's a wonderful metallic creme colour, with a holografic glitter. It's like a party on your nails!! It was kind of hard to capture. But oké.

Quick konad on the avant garde

I've bought this colour from gosh a while ago with discount. I still wanted a dark dark red so when I spotted this one in the dirty dirty discount box I had to dig it up!
So I haven't used it yet so it was Avantgarde it's turn to be used ! and I choose to do a konad with my stampy plate from born pretty.
For the stamping I used H&M mini strawberry lollipop I was really really happy that is was such a good polish for stamping !! I've got 3 more polishes from the same series, I hope there just as good :D
