Morris

Morris is a Devon Rex, and he’s a typical Devon who likes to sit on our shoulders, nap under the bed covers at night with me when it’s chilly outside and sounds “quirky” when he wants something special. We all love him very much ❤ ❤ ❤

To celebrate Morris I have of course a cat mani to show you! For this look I have used a custom made polish from Nayll (that I named “Gorgeous Teal”), OPI “My dogsled is a hybrid”, Lime Crime “Milky Ways” and chevron vinys from Nailvinyls.com and water decals (I think I bought the water decals at http://www.foxyfingertips.dk)

Custom made polish from Nayll, OPI “My dogsled is a hybrid” and Lime Crime “Milky Ways”

Lime Crime “Milky Ways” is a gorgeous vanilla white polish, it becomes opaque in two coats, the first coat may appear a little streaky but that evens out with coat no 2.

OPI “My dogsled is a hybrid” is from OPI’s fall collection 2014, Nordic. It’s a muted jade/aqua/teal shade that I love very much!

My custom made polish from Nayll is consists of a teal jelly base, multiple glitters in aqua, turquoise and gold (maybe more colors, I really don’t remember them all) and white star glitters. I made three polishes, two for me and one for my youngest daughter as a Christmas gift. This teal shade is the first that I try on. On my pictures I have one(1) coat only. Wow, it’s a OCW!!

The chevron vinyls from Nail Vinyls are very easy to work with. Just remember to wait for your base coat to dry, I always use fast drying top coat (HK Girl from Glisten & Glow) and then I wait 20-30 min before I apply my vinyls.

My year in polish etc., a summary of 2014, part 1

Standard

2014 was a very special year. It was the year I really got into nail polish for real. Most pictures in this post is from Instagram taken with my mobile so the quality isn’t that good but it’ll have to do anyway.

In January I bought my first polish from OPI(!) It was “Bubblebath”, a lovely nudish pink/beige.

In January I also took my first stumbling steps into to the world of Indie polish!! I bought my first bottles of indie polish from Edgy Polish. Thank you Katarina for creating such a lovely shop!

In February I bought more polish of course (both mainstream and indie brands) and I also tried some nail art techniques for the very first time.

In April our cat Morris moved in with us. He’s a Devon Rex and he’s such a little sweetheart. He loves to sleep in bed with me under the covers, he loves to sit on our shoulders and loves cuddles.

I love you Morris!
