Geisha nails

Standard

So I called this post “Geisha nails” but actually the water decal isn’t really showing a geisha, I think it’s a traditional picture of a Chinese woman. Sorry about the mix up.

Etude House

Tuesday means textured polish according to some of my nail friends on IG and I try to join them as often as I can. For this week I have a peachy nude textured polish from Korean Etude House. This polish I got in an awesome nail mail from a Japanese friend from IG, I think IG is fantastic, I’ve “met” so many fantastic people there ❤ 

Etude House is a new brand to me, I couldn’t figure out the name of this polish, it has only asian letters on the label 😀 Anyway, it’s a gorgeous peachy nude with some light texture. Two coats is enough and the drying time is fast.

For my accent I decided to try on a cute Geisha water decal I bought from Born Pretty Store. As a base I have two coats of Maybelline Color Show “Grey Beats”. I let the water decal dry a little before I added top coat. I think this design turned out quite nice although this color might suit me a bit better in summer when I’m tanned …

Happy birthday Morris!

Standard

Today our cat Morris turns 1 year! Happy birthday Morris!!

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.
