Here’s part 2 of my year summary of 2014.
May started with sunny weather and I wore appropriate apple green polish – Model City Polish “Margarita Time”. Unfortunately I didn’t post more nails on my Instagram feed 😦
In May I also got my first (and only so far) tattoo done, I got a gift certificate for a tattoo on my birthday and now it was time to have it done. I loooooove dragonflies so of course it had to be a dragonfly tattoo!! The dragonfly symbolizes “carpe diem” to me, like YOLO (you only live once) but in a more subtle way and this is the perfect tattoo for me to remind me to live my life the way I want to live it because I only have one life …
In June I posted more pics of polish than in May … but my nails were quite short (I hadn’t yet discovered Simply Pure Oil from Bliss Kiss).
Neon shades is part of summer so of course I had to try at least one neon from OPI’s neon collection. “Juice Bar Hopping” with white undies.
I bought my very first polish from Chanel and felt very luxurious wearing it. Taboo is a gorgeous shade but it would have looked even more luxurious with longer nails.
Of course I wore indie polish as well. This is Crows Toes exclusive polish for Edgy Polish “An Edgy Ocean Dream”.
And I rocked a gorgeous skittlette 🙂
In July it was holiday time and the whole family flew to the States. 10 days of relaxing at the beach, shopping, going on rides at amusement parks and sightseeing.
We started out in Manasquan, NJ and ended the trip with three days in the big apple, NYC.
I came home with a lot of polish … 😀
After my US-trip my nails were back to nubbins. I had gel nails done at a beauty salon and I can’t say that I was very pleased with the result. The day before I got back to work again I struggled for two(!) hours to get rid of them. No, gel nails isn’t my cup of tea.
In August I did my first gradient, not the best result but not the worst either.
I was inspired of @the_matchbook on Instagram to do apple nails. I’m so proud of this manicure. I think it’s so cute!
I bought some new stamping plates from Moyou and played with them. I really like these blue “roses”. It’s always nice with China Glaze “Fairy Dust” on top, don’t you think?! Any mani will look better with “Fairy Dust”! 😀
And it was time to bring out the more darker shades at the end of the month. I love fall colors!
Stay tuned for part 3 of this year summary …
