It’s time for “texture Tuesday” and today I’ve done a purple skittlette with Isadora “Fresh Linen” (from their new spring collection) on my pinkie and thumb, textured “Cotton Candy”, also from Isadora, on my long finger and pointer and Make Up Store “Lina” on my ring finger where I also placed a bow (bought from Light in the Box).

Cute and girlie

I just love how this mani turned out ❤ It’s cute and girly, and yes, sometimes I like it girly even though I’m over 40 years old(!) I guess the girl in me never disappears *lol*
I love how the different purples complement each other. I like doing skittlettes, it’s a fun way wearing more than one nail polish in the same mani 🙂

I don’t know if you see that I’ve got a slightly different nail shape? I’ve filed them more rounded. Maybe I’m going for a more almond shape in the future?! The main reason for changing my squovals into this is that I had difficulty writing on the keyboard, and as I work as a secretary that’s not a good thing. So, what do you think of the new shape?

Leather nails

Standard

Matte nails are going to be big this spring. ESSIE is releasing a matte collection (I’ve ordered 4 out of 6 shades of the collection “Cashmere Matte”) and of course some dear indie brands are going to rock matte polishes. You’re gonna see a lot of matte manis from me in the future.

Today I’m gonna show you one of the polishes I got by mail from a dear friend in southern Europe. She was visiting Germany recently and bought a lot of polishes and some were for me ❤ How awesome is that!?!
I got three shades of P2 polishes and one KIKO. Neither P2 or KIKO are sold in Sweden so this is double fun! I’ve chosen the wine red P2 polish with the name “Dresscode: Trendy”. Its finish is “leather matte”which dries to a slightly textured matte finish. Two coats and no top coat.

The playing card charm on my ring finger is from Twinkled T. I used nail glue to attach it to the nail.

I really like how this looks. The color is a very classy shade but the texture adds something new too the look and then ofc I like my little playing card charm. Hope you like them too.
